About this listing
A tranquil and private mountain retreat where water, forest and mountains will re-awaken the soul.
Set high on the mountain slopes of Hout Bay, Blackwood Log Cabin has panoramic views across the lush valley to the mountains beyond. The 2 bedroomed house sleeps 4 with 2 bathrooms.
Natural Surrounds.....The cabin is set in two acres of indigenous garden and forest. The natural swimming pool, low slung hammock and sun beds, make it a perfect natural place to unwind.
Perfect Position......This warm, welcoming home is perfectly positioned for exploring the peninsula and the city. It is only minutes away from the beach, restaurants and cafes. The V&A Waterfront and Table Mountain cable car are 20 minutes away. Constantia Wine lands and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens are less than a 5 minute drive away.
The Home Itself.......

A Victorian bath offers beautiful views to the forest and mountain peaks. A toilet and basin complete the en-suite bathroom.

The deck has wooden table and chairs for the inevitable elfresco dining and evening drinks. There is a barbeque for cooking on the open fire. The swimming pool and sunbeds, a wonderful place to soak up the African sun.

Other things to note
It's wonderful to explore Cape Town but some of our guests just like to be and watch nature. They unwind, read, swim and watch the valley, the mountains and nature.
Check in time is anytime after 2pm and checkout time is anytime before 10am. However, if these times don't suit you, we are happy to make alternative arrangements if we are able to.
We don't like to smoke in the house but there is a wonderful deck to use outside. We love animals but unfortunately we don't allow pets. We are quiet people that enjoy nature and like to share the home with like-minded people.
