We enjoyed our stay at blu trea in the serene Melville neighbourhood. The shop's are a stone throw away and conviently placed in case you need to grab something from there. The restaurant are also nearby though we didn't get a chance to dine at any one of them. The only drawback for me was the cat which am not...

I stay with Nathasha's Blue Trea approximately 5 to 6 times per year and have done so over the past 3 years. I have never had a bad experience. I do so because it reminds me of home, very comfortable and Natasha is a great hostess. The rooms are clean and fresh. The linen is luxurious and crisp.

True old fashioned hospitality, second to none. Enjoyed my stay in this quaint B&B. Excellent service, well appointed accommodation and facilities make this my preferred home from home. Attention to detail by owner / operator, Natasja, is appreciated. So close to medical and educational facilities yet in quiet and safe neighborhood. Will be back.

Spending a week at Blu Trea was a glorious experience, the gorgeous linen, the fine details and decor that Natasja has in the rooms made being away from home totally unnoticeable. The rooms are cleaned spotlessly daily and coming back in the evenings with the lights switched on made me feel so welcome! The breakfast offering is awesome, there is...

The last year, I spent at least 10 nights of every month in Johannesburg at Blu Trea Guesthouse. It has become like a second home to me. Natasja, thank you very much for everything you are a great host.

I travel to Johannesburg on business several times a year, and always stay at the Blu Trea guesthouse. The rooms are luxurious, and very quiet. The location is convenient for getting to both Johannesburg city centre, as well as Rosebank/Sandton.Natasja is a extremely friendly hostess who makes a great breakfast. And after a hot summer's day, the splashpool is great...

This is the place where I always come back when I'm in Johannesburg for business. The place is lovely and extremely quiet, with rooms looking on a tiny though gorgeous garden. Natajsa is a wonderful host and she always makes the stay at the Blu Trea wonderful, also with a great breakfast ! Definitely my favourite place in Joburg' !
