Sien sterre.

Net te min beddegoed indien dit baie koud is.

Just too little bedding if it is very cold.

Keurig, gerieflik en baie netjies.

Fantastiese verblyf. Ongelooflik netjies. Ek het self 'n gastehuis en is vol nonsens, maar die netheid hier is die beste wat ek nog gesien het. Baie mooi plek met baie duur afwerking. Lekker geslaap en lekker gekuier.

Neat, comfortable and very neat.

Fantastic stay. Incredibly neat. I have a guest house myself and am full of nonsense, but the cleanliness here is the best I have ever seen. Very nice place with very expensive finish. Slept well and had a good time.

The Olive Cottage het aan al ons verwagtinge voldoen - heerlik daar gekuier.

The Olive Cottage is 'n baie netjiese woonstel met bykans alles wat jy benodig om heerlik vakansie te hou, en die eienaars was baie behulpsaam.

Die kothuis het alles wat mens nodig het en baie goed geleë.

Die kothuis is modern, goed toegerus, baie netjies en sentraal geleë. Die Nespresso masjien was 'n bonus. Het baie lekker gebly.

Uit al my vakansies oor jare was hierdie blyplek die aller beste by verre.

The Olive Cottage se eienaars het die mooiste harte, ek het gevoel ek is in 'n 5ster hotel never mind 'n self catering. Ons was 10 dae daar en in daardie tyd het Sam drie keer vir ons opgevul 'n vooraad van 40 Nespresso capsules, toiletpapier, seeppoeier vir die wasmasjien, melk, seep, conditioner, hand soap, beddegoed oortrek, nuwe handdoeke. Die WIFI opvangs is fantasties, ligte en TV en haardroër werk tydens loadshedding (wat 'n blessing). Dit was seëning op seëning by hierdie 10 ster plek in my oë! Baie dankie Sam ons beveel julle plek ten sterkste aan vir elkeen wat wil voel hy bly in 'n hotel.

Out of all my vacations over the years, this place to stay was by far the best.

The Olive Cottage's owners have the most beautiful hearts, I felt I was in a 5 star hotel never mind a self catering. We were there for 10 days and in that time Sam stocked us three times with a supply of 40 Nespresso capsules, toilet paper, soap powder for the washing machine, milk, soap, conditioner, hand soap, bed linen, new towels. The WIFI reception is fantastic, lights and TV and hairdryer work during loadshedding (what a blessing). It was blessing upon blessing at this 10 star place in my eyes! Thank you very much Sam, we strongly recommend your place to anyone who wants to feel like they are staying in a hotel.

Ons is vriendelik ontvang deur die eienaar.

Olive Cottage lyk soos in die bemarkingsbrosjures, daar is geen “window dressing” nie en die plek is skoon! Die toestelle, stoof, wasmasjien, ens. is kwaliteit produkte en alles is in werkende toestand. Ek kan met vrymoedigheid Olive Cottage aanbeveel vir reisigers wat die Stellenbosch-omgewing en Kaapstad wil besoek omdat dit nogal sentraal en in 'n goeie omgewing geleë is. Ons was baie tevrede met ons verblyf in The Olive Cottage en die prys is billik.

Olive Cottage looks like in the marketing brochures, there is no window dressing and the place is clean! The appliances, stove, washing machine, etc. are quality products and everything is in working order. I can confidently recommend Olive Cottage to travelers who want to visit the Stellenbosch area and Cape Town as it is quite centrally located and in a good area. We were very happy with our stay in The Olive Cottage and the price is reasonable.

Dit was die lekkerste bly by Samatha-hulle. Ons was verwelkom en ons beddegoed was vars. Sy het bly vra of ons okei is. Haar belangstelling om seker te maak ons is okei. Ons gaan weer uit kyk vir The Olive Cottage met ons volgende kuier in die Strand. Die plek is ok baie sentraal nie ver van Strand en Gordonsbaai. Dankie Samantha vir alles.

It was the most enjoyable stay with Samatha. We were welcomed and our bedding was fresh. She kept asking if we were okay. Her interest in making sure we were okay. We will check out The Olive Cottage again on our next visit to the Strand. The place is ok very central not far from Strand and Gordons Bay. Thank you Samantha for everything.

Defiinitief 'n tuiste wat ons sal aanbeveel.

Ons was aangenaam verras om die beste kothuis te vind in Somerset-Wes. Vriendelike, gasvrye mense wat die beste voorsit en niks terughou nie. Ons het heerlik geslaap en het ten alle tye veilig gevoel, asook 'n baie stil ervaring gehad.
