Cabin Holiday Rental
Natural Surrounds.....The cabin is set in two acres of indigenous garden and forest with rock formations, wild flowers and Koi fish ponds. The natural swimming pool, low slung hammocks and trampoline, make it the perfect natural playground for children. 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....Natural Surrounds.....The cabin is set in two acres of indigenous garden and forest with rock formations, wild flowers and Koi fish ponds.

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 glass-top 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 opens it up to the valley and the mountains beyond. The deck has wooden table and chairs for the inevitable el-fresco dining and evening drinks. There is a barbeque for cooking on the open fire. The swimming pool is deep and playful and a wonderful place to soak up the African sun. More

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.

Hello, Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear you had issues. However, the Cabin is not serviced and is not advertised as such so perhaps it is better that you inform yourself better before reviews. Unfortunately I cannot see who you are or...More

Amazing location. Wonderful verandah and living accommation. Better suited to family with children as second bedroom rather small. Very rustic and no frills but we enjoyed our stay enormously. The views from the verandah were spectacular. Colette was charming and very helpful.
