The Olive Tree Villa was the most relaxing, luxurious, and thoughtfully designed/decorated accommodation. We enjoyed a winter weekend getaway in July 2020 and were stunned by the many wonderful touches in Suite 2. The fire was lit when we arrived and the electric blankets were warming the bed. Bernadise, the manager, was there to greet us and helped us order some takeaway seafood from a nearby restaurant. We cooked on the other evenings in the well-equipped kitchen with top of the line appliances and cookware. During the day, despite it being winter, we opened the doors to the beautiful sunny beach and enjoyed both privacy and access to the beach at the same time. The bathtub is very well placed to enjoy the view. We can't wait to come back in the summer. Thank you Bernadise and team Olive Tree Villa!

The attention to detail is exquisite, your amazing experience starts before you arrive. With messages wishing you a safe journey and asking if there is anything you require on arrival.

When you are welcomed to the villa the views will take your breath away and the decor and furnishings are 5 star luxury. You are surprised with small thoughtful gestures throughout your stay and you are made to feel like there is nothing they wouldn’t do for you.

You are a stones throw from the beach front, with amazing walks. Breathtaking sunset views from any part of your villa. As well as the perfect place to dolphin and whale watch!

Our only negative, is that we didn’t stay long enough.

We can’t thank you enough and can’t wait to come back.

What an amazing stay at the Olive Tree Villa in Yzerfontein!!!

Right from the start it was a pleasure working with Bernadise!!! She was in constant contact with me before and during the stay! If I could give 6 stars, I would!

On arrival we were welcomed by her to our room. Absolutely stunning views from every room. You can choose to eat out or eat in. You need not to worry as the accommodation provides for all utensils for eating in as well as a awesome braai area which is protected from the wind.

The rooms are gorgeous and very clean.

It was an absolute treat to stay here...we will most definately be back again. Wish I could go every weekend!

Everything at the Olive Tree Villa has been considered and its the perfect spot for a short getaway. The view and beach access is fabulous. Karin really goes out of her way to think of everything! For 2 couples, it would be great to hire both rooms so that you've got complete and private access to the pool area.

The olive tree villa offered a tranquil, romantic and relaxed atmosphere,ideal for a couple getaway.

The room was absolutely stunning with detailed interiors and soft lighting to create an amazing ambiance within the room space and to top it all it overlooked the beach.

We thoroughly enjoyed the fresh air as we opened the door which overlooked the beachfront and loved hearing the crashing of the waves whilst enjoyong some sun at the pool side.

Kaaryn offered outstanding service and went the extra mile to make our stay even more special and memorable.

It has been one of my best stays and I will definately be returning very soon.

Beautiful views, beautiful room and fully equipped kitchen. Karin the owner is very attentive. Addition of a breakfast would make this great value for money. I would highly recommend as a self catering spot.

My husband and I were looking for a quick weekend getaway to refresh the mind, and the Olive Tree Villa exceeded our expectations. The villa is beautifully furnished with everything you need for a luxurious weekend out of town and the ocean views are unrivalled. Our host was very friendly and professional, and made sure we had everything we needed to maximise our stay. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer! Thanks for such an awesome experience.

Wow, wow, WOOOW … what an absolute spoil to conclude our special 25th anniversary celebrations!  From the get go we realised this place is in a different league – from the friendly, yet professional service and reception by Bernadise, to the gorgeous views from the penthouse – everyone must at least once in their lives feel as special as to experience this.  The self-catering villa is simply stunning and fully equipped with everything you may need during your stay.  We felt sad to leave the place to go and get something to eat … you just want to sit/lie there and drink all that beauty in!  Also a big thank you for the baked surprise on our last morning, it rounded off the lovely stay!  We appreciate you sharing your beautiful home with us – we only wish we could stay much longer!  Sincerely hope to visit you again in future.

When a venue has been on your bucket-list for quite a while, you could be forgiven for asking a bit much of the experience. The Olive Tree House met all of our expectations, and then some. A beautifully considered space framing an expansive sea view, and a long white beach a few steps away - it was exactly what we needed. We even had an Ostrich join us for sundowners! Karen and her team's discreet service rounded off the experience perfectly, and our stay felt far too short. Highly recommended!
