“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!

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed 23 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The house was very conveniently situated for our visit to Cape Town with my parents.
My only complaint would be the open plan bathroom, well toilet actually... But that's just us. Luckily we just used the other more private bathroom. I would recommend to family and friends but warn them about the WC

Hello Maytimegirl,

Thank you for the review. Yes, the open plan toilet in the main room is not for everyone but as you mentioned, there is another private toilet to use should you need to. Apart from the bathroom facilities, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Kind Regards

“Perfect stay, lovely find!”
Reviewed 18 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed at Blackwood Cabin in March 2016 for just under 2 weeks with my family. We visit Cape Town every year and this was such a lovely find. Tend to normally stay in Camps Bay more towards the centre of Cape Town but decided to venture out a little this year and so glad we did! Less windy this side of the mountain and still not far at all to Camps, V&A etc. Very close to Constatia Wine Route :) A must!! The cabin itself is just wonderful, very clean and spacious, pool and balcony area is idyllic. It did get a little too warm at times in the cabin but we survived! The views are incredible too. Colette and Warren were perfect hosts- helped me get down to the start of the Cape Argus bike race, don't know what i would have done without them!! We had family over for a BBQ one day which was nice, Colette and Warren again came up to say hello. Would highly recommend to anyone and would definitely stay again! Thanks Colette :)
