      My friends and I had a lovely stay at Wild Olive. Spacious, clean and very well equipped. Sundowners on the balcony and a warm fireplace made it a trip to remember. Thanks to Ross for the friendly welcome.

      We were a group of 10 friends looking for a relaxed weekend getaway - Ross’ place is lovely, spacious and well equipped. House was clean and garden well looked after with at least 3 spots to BBQ and chill - great balcony with the most spectacular view. Communication with Ross was excellent and all went without a glitch. Thanks Ross!

      Spacious house great for kids with a trampoline and swing. Dog friendly with a separate fence. Great views from the different seating areas. Lovely large garden. Cleanliness not great. Kitchen cupboards not very clean. Kettle didn't work, replacement kettle dirty. Kitchen could use some more pots and cutlery considering the size of the house and amount of people that can stay there.
