Description

The Tin Shack is a lovely container-built cabin situated on a hill behind the West Coast town of St Helena Bay. The cabin overlooks the town below and the entire bay with the Cederberg mountains in the distance.

The cabin comprises 2 en-suite bedrooms and a spacious living and kitchen area. The first bedroom contains a king-size bed and the second bedroom has 2 single beds. Each bathroom is fitted with a shower. The kitchen is equipped with a fridge-freezer, a 4-plate gas hob, and a microwave, coffee- and tea-making facilities, crockery and cutlery. The spacious deck has braai facilities, including a charcoal braai and smoker, outdoor seating, and a wood-fired hot tub.

The interior is minimalist and has an industrial look but the beautiful clean finishes have not been compromised. In line with the hosts' concern for the environment, each bathroom has a compost toilet which will be serviced every day. Rainwater is collected as much as possible, and all grey water is recycled for the garden.

The cabin is situated on a smallholding with natural vegetation, abundant birdlife, including birds of prey such as kestrels and eagles, and small wildlife like mongoose, francolin, guineafowl, tortoises, and the occasional duiker roaming free. It is the ideal spot for escaping technology, reading a book, or relaxing in the hot tub while enjoying the view. In the right season, and equipped with a pair of binoculars, whales and dolphins can be seen playing in the bay.

The village of St Helena Bay and nearby beaches are within 5 to 15 km from the cabin. The hill is quite steep and walking to the village is not recommended. Walking and cycling for leisure is a nice activity to undertake on the hill. St Helena Bay has grocery stores, a petrol station, restaurants and pubs. The nearest town of Vredenburg is 28 km away, where guests will find the West Coast Mall and most other shops.
