I have been calling and emailing support with bi response.This place was utterly disgraceful. I have photos of everything, spiderwebs, cockroaches, spiders, dust and a deserted property. The entrance road is occupied by a shack community and this us not a working wine farm as advertised. There is no farming taking place the vineyards are dead with wheat growing in between. This was a total rip off. We were forced to stay the Friday night due to not finding reception. It was unhygienic and depressing to stay.

We really enjoyed having a base from which to explore the Robertson area. Also enjoyed meeting Jenny and John and hope to see them again

Olyfenbosch Cottage was just great. We stayed in the self-catering cottage with our two little one. The cottage was nicely kept, very spacious and had most of the amenities we needed. John and Jenny were sweet and came to greet us as we arrived. The location is awesome, nestled among the vineyards and rolling hills. We unfortunately did not get to explore much, but John pointed out a road we could have walked at the bottom of the valley to enjoy the surrounds. Maybe next time when we come we will leave the little ones with granny.

The beautiful mountain ranges, the serene atmosphere, birds chirping & warm hosts (John and Jenny). Stayed in J's cottage which is a B&B arrangement. Loved every moment we spent there. There is literally zero network coverage (which is a blessing in today's world of being connected). A must visit place.
