The second bedroom contains both a double and a single bed. The separate shower room is adjacent. French doors lead on to the large front balcony also accessed from the lounge.

Glencairn itself is a small, safe suburb tucked away between Fish Hoek and Simon's Town. The property is a short walking distance to a family friendly beach with tidal pool. A Spar superette, two restaurants, dive centre, tennis courts and train station are all within walking distance. Longbeach shopping mall, where you will find supermarkets and shops, is a short 10 minute drive away. The sea is warmer on this side of the peninsula and we are close to Cape Point, Boulders Beach penguin colony, Kalk Bay, Noordhoek and several good golf courses. The historic vineyards of Constantia, and Chapmans Peak Drive are easily accessible. Cape Town and the airport are only 40 minutes drive away.

GlenLin is ideally situated for water sports, mountain walking, beach walking, horse riding from Glencairn stables, boat trips from Simon’s Town, whale watching (in season) and relaxation.
