          My mom and I absolutely loved our stay at Olivewoods - it was by far the highlight of our trip to the Eastern Cape. Wendy and Brett are the most warm-hearted hosts I've ever met, and the lush paradise they've carved out of dry Karoo bush is truly exquisite. I'll treasure the memories of our night there for a long time to come and can't wait to visit again.

          This is surely one of the most beautiful and peaceful stay-overs I ever experienced. Friends thought staying over in Cookhouse environment is pure madness. Well, I am glad I did because I have experienced such tranquility and friendliness that I which I can do that trip again! Accommodation is excellent and the host - Wendy - made sure that my stay was comfortable. Can recommend this place!
