“Absolutely Amazing”
Reviewed 27 September 2014 for a stay in May 2013

I stayed with my parents and my brother and had an amazing time!
We split our time in Cape Town between Blackwood Log Cabin and a sea facing apartment at the V&A waterfront, and can honestly tell you- this place was infinetly better.
Colette was very friendly and made us feel right at home and the house itself is stunning.
The wooden floors and the long deck with the view of the table top mountain looks unreal.
We didn't want to leave!

We spent a week there with our 2 boys aged 9 and 14.
Everything has already been said about this perfect lovely place.
The cabin is very comfortable, very nicely decorated. It is located not far from Capetown but I think it is better to rent a car to get around
Everything is done by Colette or Elitar to help you spend a perfect stay
Would have loved to spend more time there !

“Hidden Retreat in great location”
Reviewed 9 April 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We spent a great Christmas break in Blackwood cabin, and felt completely at ease. Colette was very welcoming and naturally helpful, without imposing. She was fantastic with our daughter.

They set a very relaxed scene at Blackwood, which helped us get into the Holliday spirit even quicker.

The cabin itself is a comfortable accommodation, with awesome views across Hout Bay.

We wanted somewhere in Cape Town that was very comfortable, secluded and had our own pool and access. This was a great find and ticked all the boxes.

Blackwood offers a unique option to be in a natural environment within very close proximity to Hout Bay and the city.

We would certainly go back to enjoy the experience of this Hout Bay hide away.

“The second stay was even better”
Reviewed 1 April 2014 for a stay in February 2014
1
person found this review helpful

This year we stayed in the beautiful cabin for the second time. As said in the title: it was even better, because we stayed there for 2 weeks and that gave us the opportunity to make use of the house as we l like to do, so in the morning do something in the environment of Cape Town, the peninsula and the winelands and in the afternoon take a drink at the veranda and/or do some swimming in the pool.
We had a warm welcome and everything was OK..
As we were with two persons we had enough room to move around in the house, but when you are with four it's large enough.
When we are coming back to Cape Town/Hout Bay I'm sure we will stay at the Blackwood Log Cabin again.
We didn't need any help, but I'm shure Colette and Warren are standby to solve your "problems".

“Log cabin in the trees with great views of the mountains.”
Reviewed 23 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

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 the same grounds as owner's house, but completely isolated from it. Owners are therefore on hand if needed but not intrusive.
