About The Olive House

The Olive House offers self catering accommodation in Prince Albert. Here time is not historical. The sky is a song of stars. The wind is solitary, not lonely. Every space between the vegetation and deliberate stones is a path: at once trodden and unwalked. Everything is new and timeless.

Self Catering Accommodation

The Olive House in Prince Albert has five bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms are in the main house and there are three small cottages with bedrooms.

The main bedroom in the house is furnished with a King-size bed, and has an en-suite bathroom fitted with a bath, shower and toilet. The second bedroom is furnished with a double bed and the bathroom is fitted with a shower, toilet and basin. A second double bed is available for children to use. The bedrooms are air-conditioned, and in winter, fireplaces help keep the rooms warm and cosy.

One of the cottages is furnished with a double bed, and has a private bathroom with a shower, toilet and basin. The second cottage is furnished with a Queen-size bed and has a private bathroom fitted with a shower, bath, toilet and basin. The third cottage is furnished with a King-size bed and has a private bathroom fitted with a bath, toilet and basin as well as an outdoor shower. Two additional single beds, as well as two fold-out mattresses, are also available for use. For convenience, all linen and towels are provided. All the cottages are air-conditioned and heated.

As an occasion country house, the kitchen is fully equipped; a scullery with dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, ice machine and drinks fridge, a deep freezer as well as a large all-purpose fridge. The galley kitchen has a large oven and gas hob with ample space to prepare happiness while staring into the distant views. There is a built-in external braai and a weber.

The property has an exposed dam and swimming pool and as such all children are the responsibility of their parents. We respectfully request that no children unable to swim or under five years old are allowed in either the dam or the pool.

Attractions

Simply cross the road and walk up the koppie into the Karoo. Here you will look down over The Olive House and Prince Albert. Keep following the path and a gentle walk takes you to Robert Gordon Koppie overlooking the town from where you can amble back through the town.

Hiking, mountain biking, birding and botanical excursions are major attractions. Aside from a superb climate, with a high sunshine index and spectacular night skies, the village itself is a small gem, with beautifully preserved Cape Dutch, Karoo and Victorian buildings. Of these, 19 are National Monuments. Prince Albert is known for its sun-ripened fresh and dried fruit, especially figs and apricots. Karoo lamb, olives, olive oil and homemade cheeses are local delicacies.
