    The Furnishings....

    The furnishings are organic and textures are of the earth: linen, cottons, sea grass, raffia, sisal, bamboo, knotted leather and sea shells. The organic connection is not limited to the furnishings; the walls and floor are treated with plant oil on the inside and the house uses the African sun as its source of energy.

We spent a great Christmas break in Blackwood cabin, and felt completely at ease. Colette was very welcoming and naturally helpful, without imposing. She was fantastic with our daughter. They set a very relaxed scene at Blackwood, which helped us get into the Holliday spirit even quicker. The cabin itself is a comfortable accommodation, with awesome views across Hout Bay.... more

Lovely wood cabin set high on the side of a wooded valley in Hout Bay. Wonderful decor inside, fully equipped with everything you might need, including hammock! Small pool set into the hill under the cabin which was very pleasant to use during our stay. Good location only a short drive into Hout Bay. Very quiet and secluded, situated in... more
