GlenLin is the ideal base for relaxation. There are two large bedrooms, each with a double bed and lovely white linen. There is also a single bed in the second bedroom. Both bedrooms have French doors with access on to front balconies with lovely open views. The main bedroom has an en suite bathroom with separate bath and shower. There is a shower room adjacent to the second bedroom.
The living space is open plan with high ceilings and a large central island separating the kitchen, living and dining areas. Folding doors open from the lounge, which has a wood burning fire, on to the large front balcony where you can braai and admire the views.
