Centrally located, which is great for browsing around Franschoek. Quirky decor was a real hit with us. Great comfortable bed and a whopping great shower cubicle. A great short stay of three nights, couldn't have been better (with complimentary tea, coffee).

Fab apartment with lots of character, beautifully furnished and very well equipped. You can walk out of the door and you are immediately in the centre of town. Great bbq area with somewhere to sit and take the sun. No real views though which is disappointing - when we were there we were distracted by building noise. Also the apartment...

My wife and I spent 4 nights in the #2 unit. Very pleasant, secure parking, which was huge for this busy little area, short walking distance to a lot of great restaurants,etc etc. The interior was well decorated, nice to have a coffee maker, washing machine and dishwasher. The loft where the bath and bedroom is located is very nice,...

A very retro/bohemian two bed flat, well located for central franschhoek, very well furnished with everything you need for self catering(not that we did). Would book again! One small bit of advice, it is on the first floor with steep staircase, so if you need to avoid steps be aware!

This is a wonderful place to stay in an area as breathtaking as Franschhoek. There is loads of space and so comfortable. The view of the surrounding mountains is awesome. The bonus is the coffee shop right under the building and the location is perfect.

This is a lovely, extremely well equipped, secure apartment. It is situated in the centre of Franschhoek so is convenient to everything. We had a slight problem with the safe, as the previous occupants had locked it when they left but the owner called the engineer to fix it immediately. The balcony overlooks a very pleasant courtyard. The staff in...

Entrance to the complex is in the centre of town opposite the City Hall. The penthouse is spacious, beautifully designed and the location could not be better. Lovely deli downstairs where you can have a marvelous breakfast or lunch if you don't feel like preparing your own food. The penthouse is equipped with a beautiful kitchen if you wanted to...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Los Olivos, Penthouse 1. It was clean, cozy and beautifully decorated. The cleaning staff was very friendly, and very accommodating. I highly recommend Los Olivos, Penthouse 1, for any couples wanting to escape for a few days!

The only issue we had was that the checking in procedure is not very clear. There was only one tiny sign in the shop window to show the guest where to check in. Other than that it was an excellent experience. The facility is perfectly placed. In town central. It was clean & comfortable. The use of space and the...

We stayed here for two nights in November. The only good thing is the location, which is right on the high street. The apartment needs updating, the paint is tired & marked, the grout in bathrooms is cracked, sofa is grubby and there was a smell of cigarette smoke. The thing that really upset us though, was that I left...

Dear Guest Thank you for the review We did try to phone you about the earnings but no answer. Our cleaning staff confirmed that you did not leave any belongings behind. Our staff has been working for us over 10 years. It is unfortunate that you did not enjoy your stay Regards
