We travelled from the UK and did a whistle stop tour of the Garden Route starting here at Stone Olive in J'Bay. The rooms are very stylishly decorated and the beds are massive! It is clean and very comfortable. The views from our room across Jefferys Bay were spectacular. They were especially accommodating for our 2 year old, making her... More

Good breakfast, nice balcon and pool area, good sized room with extra bed. There is no fridge in the rooms but a communal fridge in the lounge room. Safe parking. Wifi didn't work well with iPhone/iPad during our visit and the fitted carpet had a bit odd smell. A bit far from the restaurants.

My husband and I spent a quiet mid-week break here and we enjoyed every minute of it The guest house was designed for the guest's comfort and convenience. We stayed in an upstairs, sea-facing room, which had the added bonus of a verandah, as well as the communal lounge . A plus is that guests could use the fridge in... More

My husband and I stayed two nights recently and loved it. Good sized rooms, well decorated, great breakfast, views, and service. They even did our laundry. Can't beat the value for money and the attention to detail.

My brother and I were welcomed with open arms even though we arrived late and the lovely lady couldn't do enough to make us have the perfect stay. We were so late we didn't have any wine to toast our first evening in SA so Marieke actually gave us a bottle from her own cupboard. Kind and generous. The chef... More

A very comfortable guest house. Great breakfast. Clean & comfortable rooms. A few little irritations worth highlighting - had 6 local TV channels to choose from - two of which were fuzzy. Not that we intended to watch TV, but it's nice to have the option to watch international news or catch a decent movie or sports event parking a... More

I recently stayed over for 1 night in Stone Olive, and have to say that it was one of the most enjoyable stays I ever had. Great service, the rooms are beautiful and clean and the sea view creates a very relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely recommend this venue any time.
