“Visit in August in Hout Bay”
Reviewed 13 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Collete was very nice and welcoming and gave us tips for places in the area.
The house is beautiful with amazing view to the mountain.
We loved our stay in Blackwood Cabin!
Hout bay is a good location for day trips.
We expected to get some fresh milk, coffee and cookies for the homie feeling.
Its recommanded to get there before the dark in the first day so its easier to find and also the ride is nicer in day time.
The pool is not heated and it was too cold to sit outside but from the living room its all glass windows so u can enjoy the beautiful view.

Thank u for hosting us!

“Didn't want to leave!!”
Reviewed 21 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

It is a great location, centrally located, the perfect place to get away. If your lucky Layla the dog may come and visit you as well. We would have happily stayed for longer if it was available. I would highly recommend this place and can't wait to come back.

“Amazing location”
Reviewed 16 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Amazing location. Wonderful verandah and living accommation. Better suited to family with children as second bedroom rather small. Very rustic and no frills but we enjoyed our stay enormously. The views from the verandah were spectacular. Colette was charming and very helpful.

“Heavenly views”
Reviewed 15 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Spent 7 nights at Blackwood Log Cabin with my husband . Absolutely loved it! Colette and Warren always there if you needed them but if you didn't you have total privacy. The views were out of this world. Every day we'd get up and have breakfast on the balcony, I had to force myself away to go out for the day. Always looked forward to returning at night to sit on that balcony and enjoy the evening with a glass of wine.
There is a lovely private pool with a shaded area to chill and read. The house was fab, 2 bedrooms, 1 double with free standing bath and a toilet, and 2nd bedroom was twin with shower room. Both rooms had mountain views.
Would I go back?.... Definitely!!!!

“Beautiful Place for our Honeymoon ”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We just finished a wonderful week at Blackwood log cabin with Colette and Warren. They have an excellent location if you are looking to stay outside of the hustle and bustle of CapeTown waterfront yet want to be close enough to all the attractions. Their home was a 20-30mim drive to table mountain, Camps bay, Simons town and even closer to the wonderful wineries of Constantia. For us it was a perfect location. We had a car all week and I would say is pretty necessary if you are staying outside the city center and want to experience all CT has to offer. The directions provided to us were great even when we arrived late in the evening. The house itself was stocked with a starter supply of milk, coffee and bread along with spices, soaps and firewood. We didn't have any issues all week and when we did hopes to text with a question mid stay Colette was very prompt. I would recommend the views, location and accommodation of Blackwood to friends and family. Hope to stay again!

“Best place I have ever stayed in when visiting South Africa”
Reviewed 28 April 2016 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed in the cabin (well it more like a villa) with our kids for a week in august 2014 and had an absolutely wonderful time. Waking up in the large bedroom with the fantastic views, having breakfast on the huge terras overlooking the valley and enjoying the swimming pool this place just breaths uniqueness and relaxation! Combine this with the very welcoming attitude of Colette and Warren and the perfect location for visiting both Hout Bay and Cape Town and you simply have the best place to stay!
