A must stay! My girlfriend and I stayed in the Olive’s Cottage just for 2 nights at the end of our CapeTown 2 week travel and I had wished we’d been there for at least a week. Doreen, family and staff are very welcoming and helpful. The instructions for everything are easily laid out. It’s a very streamlined experience. All the positive features mentioned in the previous comments are true. As others I was impressed by the design features. Not only did it look good but so many elements were functional and well placed. There was a lot of thought put into the rooms and the grounds in general and that thoroughness provides a very pleasant easy going time. A lot of places in Cape Town don’t use AC. The cottage stayed relatively cool. It was around 30 C (85-88F) during our stay and we slept fine with the windows slightly open. There was a fan if necessary. There’s great shops, fashion and restaurants in walking distance. I hope you have a good experience too.

Wonderful. Just wonderful. This property is a beautiful sanctuary and I truly have nothing negative to say. I feel so lucky to have stayed in the clean and stylish cottage. The outdoor space was gorgeous and relaxing. Doreen Jade Robert and the other staff were friendly and kind. I would absolutely stay here again and I would also recommend to friends. This property is the ideal air bnb experienced. Thank you!

Doreen is a delightful hostess. Glass of wine, bread, cheese provided when we checked in - and always available with help and guidance as needed. The cottage is simple and in very good taste, great for a couple. Glorious view of Table Mountain from the garden. Access to the swimming pool and covered table by the barbecue pit. Room cleaned daily. Good location - just steps away from fashionable Kloof Street - bakery, cafes, boutiques, great restaurants, and walking distance to downtown. Easy access (by car) to Camps Bay and Clifton beaches. Two sweet and loving dogs roam freely in the garden. All good.

We absolutely loved our stay at Doreen's. We first stayed at OLIVE'S COTTAGE for a night, and we enjoyed it so much that when we came back after a few days in wine country, we canceled our other plans to come stay for four more nights in the Studio. There are 5 units total on this amazing old property: 4 apartments, and the large house. All were full when we stayed there, and we met some lovely fellow travelers. The best thing about this place, besides the lovely accommodations themselves, was the property with its beautiful garden, lawn, pool area, and outdoor patio area. I think it might be fair to call this a compound, which has been converted to accommodate multiple groups of travelers. The location is wonderful as well. We loved the Gardens neighborhood, which is cute, has some good food and drink venues, and is a short walk to the action in Long Street. We would love to come back again!

Beautiful Beautiful!! I stayed with in Olive’s Cottage for just over 5 weeks, and a great time. The place is amazing, very stylish and comfortable, and Doreen and Meyer were the perfect hosts: kind, generous and hospitable. We had some wonderful evening meals with the hosts and fellow guests, and Meyer and I even went mountain biking and kayaking together. A home-from-home in Cape Town, highly recommended. I definitely hope to be back.

I am a creative and I have worked in the theatre, in retail and for interior magazine Elle Decoration. I have gorgeous self catering cottages in the city bowl in Cape Town and I enjoy it very much when people come to stay. The cottages are cosy and comfortable and has products from some of South Africa's most respected and fabulous designers.
