Me and my family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Olyfhuis. The place was nice and quiet, exactly what a farm lifestyle should be. We definitely felt that we were out of the rush of city life. The breakfast was also a nice touch. Keep up the great work Joy

we had a bery peaceful and enjoyable stay recently at the Olyfhuis. Very freindly reception, and safe overnight stay 5 hours away from Johannesburg. Ideal stopover for travellers leaving Johannesburg on the way to Cape Town.
