Gerieflik, skoon, netjies en alles wat mens benodig. Baie lekker gebly.

Baie lekker gebly. Die eenheid is baie netjies en skoon met goeie gehalte bedlinne en bed. Daar was heerlike bederfies vir ontbyt elke dag. Karl en Tracy het ons baie welkom laat voel. Sal beslis weer die eenheid bespreek in die toekoms.

Waarde vir geld. Netjies. Stil en veilig.

Ons het baie lekker gebly by Olive Branch Cottage. Die woonstel is baie netjies en skoon en die area is baie rustig en stil. Baie oulike selfhelp-ontbyt pakkies wat voorsien was. Was baie beïndruk met die plek. Ons sal nie weer iewers anders slaap as ons weer in Johannesburg-area is nie. Jy kry regtig meer as wat jy voor betaal.

Value for money. Tidy. Quiet and safe.

We had a great stay at Olive Branch Cottage. The apartment is very neat and clean and the area is very peaceful and quiet. Very cute self-help breakfast packs that were provided. Was very impressed with the place. We will not stay anywhere else if we are in the Johannesburg area again. You really get more than you pay for.

Wonderfully spacious and welcoming.

Thank you so much for the wonderful stay! Upon arrival we were welcomed in. Thank you for catering to our every need! From ground coffee to clean bedding! The solar system made us forget about loadshedding. We appreciate all the small details and wonderful options in snacks and breakfast foods. And the beautiful garden is a plus!

Great stay with superb hosts.

We would highly recommend staying at Olive Branch Cottage. Tracy and Karl are great hosts who did everything possible to help make our stay so enjoyable. The facilities were ideal for us, we loved our stay, and we would definitely return. The private WhatsApp group set-up to enable easy communication between us and our hosts was very helpful.

Perfect family accommodation close to Rynpark Retirement Village.

Perfect for regular family visits to Rynpark and friends and activities on the East Rand. The cottage is spacious with a sitting room/bedroom, separate dining room, kitchen and bathroom. Everything one would expect for a home away from home! Located in lush Rynfield, close to golf courses, restaurants and recreation areas.
