I am a typical South African, born and raised in Johannesburg. I would like my guests to experience the warm South African hospitality and friendliness when they stay in Smudge Blu 1 Guest Cottage or my smaller flat-let, Smudge Blu 2 Being an ex-teacher and "people's person", I enjoy making my guest's stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. I am married and have two adult children. I am a full time artist and Pilates Instructor. I am passionate about my family, my animals, art, travelling and keeping fit. We are enthusiastic cyclists and compete annually in the Argus Cycle race!
Local holidays are usually in Znkwazi, along the Natal North Coast, Cape Town or we love the quietness of The Kruger National Park.
We are very blessed to be able to go to Pecanwood Golf Estate or Zebula Golf and Nature Reserve for shorter break-aways.
"J'adore Paris, France" I love the art, architecture, history, fabulous food, wine and champagne, but most of all " c'est tres manjefique shopping "!
Experience a truly fabulous and comfortable stay at Smudge Blu Guest Cottage. The BETTER home from home!
Sonia and Martin Duncome of Dalkeith Great House, Jamaica reviewed." We all enjoyed our stay with Renee at Smudge Blu, she was most accommodating and welcoming, she tried to cater to our every need in all areas "and was successful in so doing" The accommodation was well furnished and comfortable, we found Renee easy to talk to, with a warm personality, she was genuinely interested in us as guests and visitors to SA. We would be most happy to return and recommend Smudge Blu as first class in every way. Our stay at Smudge Blu was for 3 weeks, the meals supplied was delicious, tasty and well presented, no two meals the same, go and experience it for yourself, you will not be disappointed."

Breakfast was second to none, healthy, mouth watering and was freshly prepared each day. I would certainly recommend Smudge Blu."
