Olive Cottage - more than just a place to stay


Enjoy peace of mind living on the property of a sustainable eco residence. Lock-up and go, fully serviced and furnished, available for medium or long-term rental. 100% off-the-grid - no need to worry about load shedding or water cuts. 


If you love nature and want to enjoy the bush-lodge-feel in the city, Olive Cottage is for you. It’s not just a garden cottage: it’s a unique city escape into off-the-grid, farm-like living, only a stone's throw away from the vibrant neighbourhood of Linden and Cresta Shopping Centre, safely nestled in the boomed-off suburb of Darrenwood. Olive Cottage is situated, among three other rental cottages, on the property of what once was one of Johannesburg’s earliest farms. Surrounded by lush indigenous gardens you will catch beautiful views of Northcliff from its private wooden deck.
