Overview

Glencairn House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms (sea and mountains), 3 bathrooms, sun room, garden

False Horizons' is a large-scale two-story, light and airy wooden house that invites you to relax and dream. It has four bedrooms (three up, down one) comfortably accommodate double or twin beds and fitted wardrobes and can eight or nine people.

All rooms are generously cut and quality but also comfortable.

The first floor sun room overlooks the bay and the mountains. From here it is possible to fine the whales in the bay watching. This room leads directly into a bright spacious living room connected to a dining room (8 places). This looks at the terraced typical of Cape Town garden. One enjoys a fireplace in the living room on windy, cooler days.

The open kitchen is modern and well furnished with everything you can expect from a good kitchen (including a large fridge and freezer, a large cooker (electric) with an oven, a microwave and a dishwasher).

On the first floor there are two bathrooms (one with shower, one with bathtub / shower) including each toilet. On the ground floor there is a bathroom (with shower and toilet). All bathrooms have good water pressure.

The ground floor is a large open space, with large glass doors (in the front garden leading). The sleeping area (double bed) is easily separated, then to a living space, then (which leads into the garden) to a kitchen. All the facilities are new and modern.

The large sheltered garden has a lawn and is otherwise constructed in terraces. Our kids call it the adventure garden. The front garden (lawn) has a table with benches and a large barbecue (everything can be accommodated in the rear garden).

The house has a double garage. This is also the washing machine.

The house has an alarm system.

The house is situated on a hill, the False Bay, Glencairn beach, overlooking the mountains, an area known for its beautiful beaches. Water sports, golf courses, and especially the large number of whales (September to November) and the bays with Penguins. The three upstairs bedrooms have views of the bay, the beach and the mountains. The wide sandy beach is just (walk) in about 10 minutes.

The house is ideal for families or groups. There is ample space and retreat facility, and a lot of garden space. But for couples it is cozy and invites you to relax and enjoy. Near the house there is a variety of hiking and mountain bike trails. Simon's Town and the neighboring towns have all kinds of water sports, golf courses, and a variety of restaurants, bars and shops. All kinds of cyclists enjoy the challenges and unique landscapes.

Neuerungen im Haus verführerisch

  • 5 of 5

Ich war wieder da und bin begeistert. Renoviert, alles heller und noch freundlicher. Verführerisch: Fernsehen und Internet Wireless installiert, schneller als zuhause. In meinem Raum im Erdgeschoss neue Kücheneinrichtung (Kühlschrank).

Obwohl Juli und eigentlich "Winter" gab es herrliche Sonne, Toben im Meer, Picknick am Meer ( leider wollte ein alter Pavian mitessen). Erstaunlich wieviel Golfplätze in und um Simonstown, sehr schön: privat Wohnen mit Freunden und zusammen zum Golf. Wunderbares Essen im Habour House in Kalk Bay, direkt über dem Meer( Reservierung empfohlen!).

Grandiose Aussicht auf tolle Bucht

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben wunderbare Tage hier verbracht. Gleich am ersten morgen sahen wir beim frühstück von der Veranda aus einen Wal in der Bucht. Zum Strand sind es nur wenige Minuten zu Fuß und auch Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Restaurants lassen sich bequem zu Fuß erreichen, wenn man sich nicht an ein wenig Steigung stört. Das ist der Preis für die tolle Lage am Hang. Als Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge nach Kapstadt, zur Pinguinkolonie in Simonstown oder ins coole Kalk Bay ist das Haus Ideal gelegen.

Wir haben uns auch bei noch nicht so heißem Wetter dank des Kamins sehr wohl gefühlt - im Oktober waren die heißen Duschen ein Pluspunkt - und würden es gerne auch einmal im Sommer erleben!

Jederzeit wieder!

Prima Ausgangspunkt für vielfältige Aktivitäten

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist vom Flughafen Kapstadt problemlos zu erreichen. Es ist praktisch, schön und gemütlich eingerichtet, sowohl für kleine als auch große Gruppen/Familien. Es können auch zwei Mietparteien unabhängig voneinander wohnen. Familienfreundlich, mit einem Abenteuergarten hinter dem Haus.

Vom Haus hat man einen wunderschönen, weiten Blick in die Landschaft und auf´s Meer. Die Badebucht ist fußläufig erreichbar (Achtung. oft windig!), Baden zwischen Pinguinen per Auto nur ein Katzensprung.

Der Standort ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für unterschiedlichste Aktivitäten: Ausflüge oder Wanderungen durch interessante Landschaften (hügelig), durch eine erstaunliche, unvergleichliche Vegetation und für Vögel-Beobachtung, für Fahrradtouren (Marathon im Frühjahr), zum Segeln, zur Wal-Beobachtung. Ich habe alles ausprobiert, bis auf die Wal-Beobachtung – aufgehoben für das nächste Mal.

Verpflegung ist kein Problem, ob Supermarkt, Fischmarkt, Restaurants oder auch eigene Eroberung von Meerestieren.

Ich habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt.
