    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    Natural Surrounds.....The cabin is set in two acres of indigenous garden and forest with rock formations, wild flowers and Koi fish ponds. The natural swimming pool, low slung hammocks and trampoline, make it the perfect natural playground for children.

    The Home Itself.......

    The main bedroom has a queen bed and glass sliding doors that lead onto a private covered deck with a hammock. The two large windows look out to the mountains where the sun ri...

    The Furnishings....

    The furnishings are organic and textures are of the earth: linen, cottons, sea grass, raffia, sisal, bamboo, knotted leather and sea shells. The organic connection is not limited to the furnishings; the walls and floor are treated with plant oil on the inside and the house uses the African sun as its source of energy.

We were fortunate to stay at Blackwood Lodge for 12 nights. The lodge is in a beautiful position situated high above Hout Bay with lovely views. However it is close enough to enjoy both Hout Bay beach and the wine estates of Constantia. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable and has been furnished in natural tones to compliment the wooden... more

I went to Cape Town lots of times in the last ten years. Blackwood log cabin is one of the most comfortable, peaceful and secure place I ever stayed. Surrounded by nature, with a little private pool and a stunning overview from the terrace. Beatiful furniture, very clean and lot of space to live. Probably would be better to have... more

It was approximately 9:30-10 p.m. and everyone had retired for the evening. With the help of our taxi driver, we were able to finally call through to a... more
