Verified reviewexcellent

I have now stayed in Glenlin three times over the last 4 years. Each time the standard of service and quality of the accomodations have been excellent. Glenlin is bright and airy with large bedrooms and bathrooms. The Living area is very comfortable with great views from the front balcony of the ocean and mountains. It is a great place to sit and watch the world go by. This is an excellent location with a beach, pub/restaurant and supermarket within walking distance and ideally situated to explore the Cape Penninsula area.

I have just returned from my second stay at GlenLin and am still very impressed with this self catering accommodation. The apartment has 2 spacious bedrooms, sleeps up to 5 people and is very bright, clean and well appointed with wonderful views of the mountains and the sea.
