Blackwood Rest is tucked away among the forests of the Garden Route in Fisanthoek, surrounded by indigenous national parks, with the Diepvalle Forest to the north and Harkerville Forest to the south. This luxurious cottage is conveniently located halfway between Plettenberg Bay and Knysna, in short distance for adventure and exploration either way. This is the ideal base for those wishing to explore the attractions and activities in the popular Garden Route. Rest up after a day of sight-seeing and enjoy the peaceful sunset with refreshments and snacks or lighting the fire for a braai!

Bordering the forest, the property grounds are free for exploration and covers 1 hectare in total. Be on the lookout for various species of birds such as the Malachite and Pied King Fisher, Crown and Fish Eagles and of course, the infamous red and green flash display of the Knysna Loerie (Turaco) in flight. Our resident rabbit, creatively named Rabbi by a 6-year old Xhosa girl, regularly grazes on the lawn.

We hope you join us in heaven on earth to make your stay truly magical!

Our stay was wonderful. Thank you so much for your hospitality and your kindness. The house is beautifully decorated, very well equipped, and the garden looks amazing. Thank you so much for being a very careful host. We highly recommend this place.

There isn’t a single fault I can point out during my stay at Blackwood Rest. To begin with our host Brendon sent us perfect directions to the location along with pictures to help us navigate our way easier. Brendon met us on our arrival and gave us a lovely tour of the property. Every minor detail was well taken care of. Things that would have never even crossed our minds, Brendon has thought of. From the fluffy slippers and gown to the individual towels for every guest in the rooms. Whether it be the complementary drinks in the fridge or the marshmallows for roasting after a braai, Brendon has taken care of it all. The cottage has the most stunning hand made wooden furniture that compliments the mordern rustic feel of it. The pics provided don’t do justice to the beauty of the cottage and property. We were provided with sticks to chase away baboons if you decide to go on a hike or the basket of blankets for when you relax in the patio enjoying a peaceful cool night watching the stars. The view from the patio is just breathtaking with a kids playing area and an island by the small dam with a fire pit if you decide to cast a line and enjoy some light fishing. Brendon was an amazing host who took care of all our needs and was always available with quick responses for anything we might have needed. The house was serviced every day when we were out touring the area for free and our laundry was done for a little fee. Brendon’s hospitality was outstanding and he went above and beyond what was expected from him. An example of his attention to detail in making sure we had a comfortable stay was when he noticed I had laid down a mattress for my baby to sleep on at night and the next day he had built a cot for my baby to sleep in! Brendon also provided us with information and booklets on activities and places to visit around the area. Our privacy was never disturbed and we enjoyed our stay so much that we extended it and stayed an extra two nights! We would highly recommend Blackwood rest and we’ll definitely be back! Worth every last penny! Truly a hidden gem! The pics don’t do justice in displaying how stunning the place is!

If you’re looking for peace and quiet but still need to be close enough to the main centres this is it. Halfway between Plett and Knysna. In the bush. Lovely very well appointed cottage with some stunning home made wood furniture. Brendon was a fantastic host, going the extra mile with everything. We’ll definitely stay over again when we pass by.

Brendon’s place is out of this world. Honestly, the pictures do not do it justice. Every single thing has been thought out and designed to maximize your comfort and enjoy your stay. The place is beautifully decorated with hand crafted wood and modern, clean furniture. As soon as you walk into the door you will be blown away. Brendon has thought of everything last detail to make your stay even more enjoyable. He is an exceptional host who goes over and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and happy. The grounds are beautiful and the house is spotless. We highly recommend this place!
