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.

The space
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.......

The main bedroom has a queen bed and glass sliding doors that lead onto a private covered deck with a hammock. The two large windows look out to the mountains where the sun rises. A Victorian bath offers beautiful views to the forest and mountain peaks. A toilet and basin complete the en-suite bathroom.

The second bedroom has twin beds and glass sliding doors that open onto the main deck. The large window looks to the mountains where the sun sets.

The second bathroom has a walk in rain shower with a large window looking into a Yellowwood tree. The wooden basin and toilet complete the bathroom.

The kitchen is spacious and modern. It is well equipped with a gas stove and oven, fridge and microwave. All cooking utensils, crockery and glassware are fit for entertaining guests.

The Lounge has high ceilings and hanging lampshades that mimic silk woven cocoons. The lounge extends onto the deck with foldaway glass doors on three sides that open up to the valley and the mountains beyond.

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.

Where you’ll be

Hout Bay 7806 Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa

Hout Bay is a wonderful village lying in a valley that ends in a bay. It is picturesque and with lots to do in the harbor, on Chapmans peak and down at the markets in the bay. Whether it's great food, shopping, hiking, walking or cycling, it's all in the valley.
