“Excellent cottage in a great location”

This is our second stay at Glen Cottage and we look forward to returning again soon. Glen Cottage is an idyllic find. It is brilliantly located - close to the beach, overlooking Glen cairn Vlei (a nature reserve area) and within walking distance to local amenities and restaurants. It is a wonderful cottage with both mountain and sea views. The cottage is immaculately clean, tastefully decorated, well-furnished and absolutely perfect for a family holiday. It is well proportioned with a very spacious living area and large kitchen so that everyone can spread out. The cottage is well equipped with everything that you may need. The attention to detail is evident - with excellent quality bedding and towels – all helping ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable stay – and a good nights sleep!
Glen cottage is well located for exploring the Cape. During our stay we enjoyed running along the beach front (into Simons Town) for breakfast or a quick invigorating climb to the top of Elsie’s Peak for stunning views over the surrounding area. Our children particularly enjoyed the local attractions including: swimming with the penguins at the stunning Boulders Bay, playing in the tidal pool, digging for hours at the Gem Stone Scratch Patch, running and nature spotting on the beach and exploring the wildlife on the Vlei – all of which are within walking distance of the cottage. The cottage is also well located for easy access to the better known tourist attractions of Cape Town and the Cape Peninsular including: the many wineries in the area; Cape Town Waterfront; Table Mountain; Cape Point and Robben Island.
Lindi is incredibly welcoming. She went out of her way to be helpful and ensure that we had everything that we needed. This is the second time we have stayed at this property and it was another fantastic stay. We would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the Cape. It is a hidden gem and well worth visiting.

“Loads of character, great for the beach, value for money”

We had a lovely stay in this charming simple cottage. The owners and managers were very helpful providing an accurate description, easy payment options (from the UK) and directions. The house-keeper was also very friendly and helpful (bringing in our laundry for instance). The cottage itself has a spacious lounge and kitchen (albeit with dated appliances, but adequate for our needs) and good sized-bedrooms. The location is a few minutes walk from the lovely quiet beach. Overall we felt it was great value for money.

We are pleased to say the kitchen has now been modernised but keeping its relaxed 'cottage' style character too!
