My wife and I rented this home on our first trim to South Africa. We are not familiar with the area and lucked out with this house. It is in a great neighborhood. Perfectly situated to take advantage of the endless breeze coming off the ocean and to reveal a breathtaking sunrise every morning. If you are looking for an authentic experience then Glencarin is the perfect little area. A short walk will bring you to the train station where for about $2.00 you can ride between the towns all day long, or grab an UBER that never took longer than 10 minutes to pick us up regardless of time of day. If you would rather walk there are convenient paths / sidewalks that hug the coast line and offer amazing scenery.
The only thing that would have made this stay more enjoyable would have been adding three to four weeks to our stay. Nine days is just not long enough in such a warm, and inviting home.
