    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.

Lovely wood cabin set high on the side of a wooded valley in Hout Bay. Wonderful decor inside, fully equipped with everything you might need, including hammock! Small pool set into the hill under the cabin which was very pleasant to use during our stay. Good location only a short drive into Hout Bay. Very quiet and secluded, situated in... more

We were very fortunate to spend a wonderful five days in Blackwood Cabin and can’t recommend it highly enough. The views across the valley are stunning and the location is quiet and peaceful. Colette was a thoughtful and unobtrusive host and the cabin was spotlessly clean and fully equipped with everything we needed – bedding, towels, hand soap and any... more
