Enjoy a refreshing dip in the solar heated, saltwater swimming pool and evenings are spent in the guest lounge, where cosy fireside conversations are enjoyed and dinner drinks are served with a warm atmosphere of times gone by. With Yellowwood beams and doors leading out to the large front verandah overlooking the rolling lawns and Iceberg roses, the diningroom is open daily for hearty Continental and full English breakfatsts.breakfasts, with freshly baked pastries being the ‘order of the day’. During the balmy summer months breakfast on the verandah, shaded by lofty umbrella’s and brightly colored tablecloths, is a leisurely affair. The diningroom in the evenings is transformed, as the lights are dimmed for intimate candle- lit dinners.

In line with our ever increasing demands of unemployment, housing, electricity, and water shortages in South Africa, we are involved in various upliftment programs and to becoming more ‘green’. To this end, we have installed solar heating panels, assisted by heat pumps, photo voltaic cells and electricity storage batteries. This combination, assists in the saving of electricity for water heating and our Led light bulbs assist with electricity savings. We also support, ‘Soil for Life’, a local NGO initiative, where unemployed people, are shown how to grow vegetables to feed their families and to sell the surplus to generate an income, while making use of recycling and putting back into the soil. We save all our used teabags, which are used by ‘The teabag factory’ to create employment for people in the Hout Bay area and we encourage our guests to visit these upliftment programs, to view the lovely gifts they produce. All our amenities are eco friendly and we recycle most of our waste, make our own compost, make use of grey water in our toilets and the watering of our gardens.
Glen Avon, has been owned and managed by the Stringer family for the past nineteen years and from its humble beginnings, it has blossomed into that which it is today, a luxury boutique hotel offering the discerning traveller, a haven of peace and tranquility.
