Our second visit to Wild Olive was as good as the first visit. Our hosts were so kind and thoughtful; they welcomed us back with great warmth and made us feel so 'at home'. Our two rooms were perfect and our every need was taken care of. Great guest house in every way.

I always try and stay with Wild Olive when I'm down in Cape Town. The team have known me for years and they always make me feel welcome. They are professional, fun and approachable and always happy to make your stay even more pleasant.

Excellent overall. Treadmill might need a service. The board on which you run makes a big noise. Also possibly mention what type of food can be prepared for supper if needed. I've been there for business plenty of times and personal once. Enjoyed every time.

Can not ask for a more convenient location in the Southern suburbs. Excellent facilities and a great room with everything you can possibly need. To top it off you will find the most friendly, helpful staff.

The guesthouse were recommended by a family member. We arrived after 7 pm. The only problem were that we could not clearly see the name of the guesthouse from the street.
