“Fabulous location” Location is everything when renting a place in an unknown city. This property, located on the waterfront of Cape Town allows you to walk everywhere downtown, is a stepping stone from the Hop On and Off Bus and a mall offering great restaurants, in a few words, is great. The apartment itself has everything you need and its size is perfect for 2 couples. You cannot ask for better.
“Wonderful Home Away From Home!” If you're lucky enough to visit Cape Town South Africa, Blackwood Log Cabin is where you want to stay. This place is FANTASTIC. The accommodations are perfect with views of Table Mountain National Park just across a wooded valley and gardens on the property landscaped with beautiful native plants and even fish ponds and a pool! Don't know about you but when I think of a log cabin I envision camping out or at least living rather rustic. There's nothing about Blackwood Log Cabin that's rustic. It offers full privacy and all comforts that a visitor to this wonderful country could ask for. To complete the vacation package, you get to meet the owners Colette and Warren Riley. They made us feel so very welcome and offered much appreciated tourism information that was always right on the mark.
Do we recommend Blackwood...YES. Would we stay here again...that's another resounding YES!
“A great stay” After heaving stayed a week in the fantastic apartment “heavenly view 1”, we moved to the 2 fully equipped rooms in the little charming patio garden in the back of the house. “Heavenly view 3” is a charming little studio room with double bed, bathroom with shower, and fully equipped kitchen. We appreciated the soft and selected colours of the furnishing. There is sitting arrangement in the garden and a barbeque is at your disposal. The pool can of course be used any time and while sunbathing in the pools garden, you enjoy the most stunning view over Muizenberg. The charming owner Suzette Raymond goes out of her way to make you have a fantastic stay.
“Clean and good value” The apartment was great: spotless, easy to find, beautiful views and there are lots of great restaurants and cafes around. Robin was very efficient and replied to all our queries very quickly.
You probably do need a car if you are staying in Blouberg, but in saying that you really need a car wherever you stay in Cape Town.
All in all, a great time and we intend to return!
