"The Tin Shack" is a beautiful container built cabin situated on a hill behind the West Coast fishing village of St Helena Bay. The cabin overlooks the village below and the entire bay with the majestic Cederberg mountains in the distance. It has two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a spacious living area. The kitchen is equipped with a standard fridge/freezer, four-plate gas hob, microwave, and all kitchen essentials. The spacious deck has a BBQ, outdoor seating, and a woodfired hot tub.

The space
The interior is minimalist and has an industrial look but beautiful clean finishes have not been compromised. In line with the hosts' concern for the environment, each bathroom has a compost toilet which will be serviced every day. We are collecting as much rainwater as possible and all greywater is also recycled for the garden. The cabin is situated on a smallholding with natural vegetation, abundant birdlife including birds of prey such as kestrels and eagles, and small wildlife like mongoose, francolin, guineafowl, tortoise, and the occasional duyker roaming free. It is the perfect spot for escaping technology, reading a book, or relaxing in the hot tub or hammock while watching the world go by. In the right season and equipped with a pair of binoculars, whales and dolphins can be seen playing in the bay.
