Visited the Olive Tree along with my daughter, son in law, granddaughter and Coco. Was pleasantly surprised with the holiday home, it was beautiful, extremely clean to a high standard and very well equipped with everything you would need and beautifully located. Literally home from home. We had the most amazing holiday making new memories. The decking area was a god send for us all especially the Coco who enjoyed spending time outside with us all. I didn't personally communicate with the owners as my daughter booked the holiday, however, I know they have communicated extremely well from start to finish. Even during the holiday a courtesy call was given to make sure everyone was ok, and they was most helpful giving advice where to go, right down to the directions. Will definately come back. I'm already badgering my daughter to book up. ???? If I could give more stars I certainly would. Thankyou for letting your holiday home out to us. We look very forward to revisiting on the very near future.

Such a pleasure to hear that you all had an amazing holiday, making new memories, enjoying Olive Tree & its Decking Area. Thank You for taking time to share this through your review. Fingers Crossed your daughter will soon be on the case to "Book Up" for you to return - You will all be most welcome. Harvey & Michael

Harvey and Michael have gave us outstanding customer service from the second we booked, right through to the very end, they both couldn’t have been any more helpful, from sending us traffic links, to checking in and seeing how we are, and if there’s anything we needed whilst at our stay at olive tree. Olive tree is in the perfect location, is exceptionally clean and very very good value for money. When we arrived at olive tree we was all stunned how lovely it is. It was SO clean there was no sign of any other guest being in there just hours before our arrival! A good selection of dvds and games are also provided, not to mention the book stand with all the books! My daughter loved looking through them! Such a lovely touch to a lovely caravan! We will 100% be back again and we cannot wait! It’s a 5 star from us! Thank you both!

Thank You for taking time to share your review with such kind words. We are delighted to hear how pleased you were with all aspects of your stay at Olive Tree and for rating our customer service to be outstanding. It will be a pleasure for you to return Harvey & Michael

Excellent communication from start to finish with plenty of helpful tips...the caravan is very cosy and spotlessly clean, the decking is a god send as you can enjoy the comfortable furniture any time of the day...all in all we had a lovely holiday with no complaints whats so ever.

We are delighted to know that you had such a lovely holiday and agree with you for the decking - very much our Jewel in the Crown!! Our housekeeper was pleased to receive your feedback on cleanliness. Thank you for taking time to submit your review.

Harvey & Michael really do know how to do things right. The holiday home was immaculate, all kitchen utensils supplied and of good quality. A very large decked area with plenty of top end furniture. Location could not be better either, just a short few steps to the main venue and pool area, watch the iconic steam train passing by as you enjoy the sun from the decking. Communication from start to finish with the owner's has been clear and prompt. This gem of a home has much more to give and promises everyone a 5* holiday in Torbay.

A Huge Thank You for you amazing feedback on both the physical aspects of Olive Tree and what we have provided for our guests, as well as the service & communication that we provided to your family throughout your booking process and stay. From your feedback it is so pleasing to see we are meeting the high standards that we set ourselves. Michael & Harvey

So our third stay at Olive Tree and we have another stay booked for July - so this says it all really. A totally fantastic holiday "home from home" . The caravan is perfectly positioned on the site - close to the pool ( yes we swam outdoors in April as the pool is heated ) and minutes walk to the headland where the views are incredible. The decking area is a real added bonus and really gets the sun too. Thanks again guys!!!

Taking the time to post your 5* Review is much appreciated. It's really encouraging to know from returning guests that our standards and levels of service are being maintained. Not long until July, so lets hope you get great sun to enjoy the decking & pool once again.

Olive grove proved to be just what we needed to relax and recharge our batteries. That said , we enjoyed costal walks to lovely coves and beaches some of which were challenging but which walked off the fantastic food at the Smugglers and the Waterside Inn which I would highly recommend for taste and value . The caravan was welcoming to us and our doggy family, Harvey and Micheal thought of everything from dog bowls to gin glasses. We will definitely be back. Thank you again for a lovely holiday xx

Thank you for your 5* Review, We are delighted that Olive Tree met your needs so well and as dog owners ourselves, ensuring dogs are welcomed and well catered for is important to us. Having you return in the future will be a pleasure.

Another great stay at Michael & Harvey’s caravan. Everything was positive about our stay, from communication, cleanliness, parking, value for money and Waterside holiday park is a great base to go visiting lots of other destinations eg Torquay, Brixham, Dartmouth etc. as there is also a great bus service, right outside of the park. Thankyou Michael & Harvey will definitely continue staying here in the near future and will always recommend you to family & friends.

A Great Pleasure having you return to stay at Olive Tree and Thanks for taking time to leave your review. We look forward to hearing from you when your looking for a next quotation Michael & Harvey

Pure perfection from the original enquiry about the caravan right through our holiday. It is our second holiday at Olive Tree and we have already got 2 booked for next year. The booking process is seamless and the courtesy phonecall on arrival is a lovely personal touch. Immaculately clean and fully equipped caravan. The decking is a real suntrap - even warm enough for a drink outside in October!!! I have no more words to say how amazing Olive Tree and its owners are. Simply the best.

Such amazing feedback, it's so good to know that we are meeting our guest's needs in such perfect ways across all that we do. Thank You so very much. Thank You for your 2 bookings for 2022, we can't wait to welcome you back to Olive Tree (And we will do our best to have something "New & Different" to enhance the experiences further for 2022) Michael & Harvey

Thankyou to Michael & Harvey for another wonderful stay at Olive Tree. The customer care from booking right through to our return home was excellent. Olive tree was spotlessly clean as always. We cannot recommend this holiday home highly enough. PERFECTION!!! Thankyou Michael and Harvey for your extreme kindness.

Our first time visiting Paignton and we couldn’t have stayed in a better accommodation. The caravan had absolutely everything we could have needed and was extremely comfortable and clean. The booking process was seamless and Michael kept in contact throughout the whole thing. Always on the end of a message to give us tips on where to go etc a lovely touch to making our time that much better. You will not regret booking this lovely caravan. We are looking forward to coming back! It’s perfect and I’ll never get bored of the steam train passing the caravan.

There is nothing that you wouldn’t like in this beautiful holiday home. Michael and Harvey have thought of everything to make your stay relaxing and comfortable. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they are a fountain of knowledge with regards to places to go and where to eat out, not that you need to as everything you need to cook a delightful meal is on hand even down to the gin glasses. Such thoughtful guys, it was my birthday and anniversary celebrations and upon arrival they had put banners in the caravan which was a lovely surprise and very much appreciated along with a lovely gift. Whatever the weather you will have everything you need with the gated deck area with furniture for alfresco dinning and sunbathing to the caravan which has full central heating so if you can’t wait till summer and you want a winter break get booking. This is our second stay in olive tree and I’m sure there will be many more. I can’t recommend both the holiday home or the guys enough and I know your stay will be a happy one.

We were delighted that you chose to spend both your Birthday & Anniversary celebrations at Olive Tree, so was our great pleasure to make your welcome a little extra special. Thank you for your most generous feedback, its always good when our guests clearly have such a wonderful experience. Michael & Harvey

This was our 2nd stay at Olive Tree and the caravan has on both occasions been excellent and extremely clean and tidy . The overall process from the enquiry stage of the booking to getting access to the caravan was first class with all things covered .Michael kept us fully informed throughout the process with emails to confirm our deposit and final payments of the booking prior to our holiday. The caravan itself is located in an excellent spot on a lovely site with lots of amenities and is fully equipped with a lovely outdoor secure decked area with seating and dining area .There is ample on site parking directly at the front of Olive Tree which is great and if you choose to walk it is approximately 2 miles to Paignton Central area or the bus route is close by .

we had the holiday home booked 2 years ago but with covid 19 was delayed until this year. Michael was in touch all through out updating us as soon as he had heard himself as to if we could come down. Arrived on saturday for our 2 week stay in olive tree holiday home and was not dissapointed, everthing was how Michael had explained in the email. we could not have asked for a better location for my disabled parents that had come with us. It was lovely and clean and everything was thought of for us from a dvd player, welcome pack, dab radio and various information for the days out. we also had a covid 19 pack which we welcomed and used. I can not recommend enough the Olive tree Holiday home for a stay in the most wonderful English RIviera offered by Michael & Harvey. well done guys keep up the good work.

Thank you for sharing your great feedback. Good to know the Covid pack was so well appreciated, not to mention used. Despite restrictions about to be much reduced, we plan to continue providing those for the foreseeable future - Our Guest's Comfort & Safety is paramount to us.

This holiday was worth the years wait!! Had originally planned it for 2020. The caravan was immaculately clean, fantastic location and the outdoor decking space is just perfect. We have an 11 year old so we made good use of the outdoor heated pool. We also have a dog and there are so many brilliant walks within minutes of the caravan. The views from the headland are incredible. We have already booked for later in the year and will do for next year too. Michael and Harvey are the best and kept us so well informed over what has been a difficult year for everyone. Hope the summer season goes well for you. Thanks so much.

What can I say, everything was excellent, despite the fact that our break had to be cut short because of LOCKDOWN 2. The caravan was spotlessly clean and had everything we could have wanted for a comfortable, as it turned out long weekend. Our dogs loved the decking where they could safely sit and watch the world go by. Communication could not have been better, from initial booking through to keeping us informed during our break as to what Michael thought would have to happen due to the second lockdown. We were due a refund as we had to leave before the leaving date booked and the money was in our bank account before we got home! Although not the break we had planned, we went to a lot of our favourite places, many of which were also recommendations of Michael & Harvey and had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. It is very much our wish that we will return to this lovely home from home.

Mature Couple

Date of stay - 1 Aug 2020 - 8 Aug 2020

After lockdown we were desperate for a ‘change of scenery’, but a little apprehensive about COVID & possible holiday cancellation. However, with regular updates & assurances from Michael, we had no fears about our holiday, & were not disappointed with our selection. The caravan is only a couple of years old, is lovely & contained everything we needed - home from home. The large decking area & furniture was ideal for sitting out in the warm evenings & although all the park facilities were right next door, (which was very handy), the park itself, although quite busy, was relatively quiet & we were not disturbed by late entertainment. The site is also very well positioned & central to Brixham, Paignton, Torquay & Totnes to name just a few. I would definitely recommend a stay at this caravan & if you require further information, just ask Michael - he is very helpful and a pleasure to deal with.

We understand how apprehensive it can be for guests embarking on holidays so soon after Lock Down, so it is really encouraging for us to hear how well we were able to reassure you and provide a Holiday Home that was able to offer you a "Home form Home & change of scenery", whilst also meeting the Government Covid Secure requirements.

From the moment we booked we were confidently reassured about Covid Clean and guarantee regarding any lockdown cancellations being covered. Waterside is in a great central location for exploring. We would recommend Fairy Cove, Goodrington, broadsands, Paignton Zoo, Brixham and the Steam Train to Dartmouth. There is a coastal path close to the caravan, however we did not attempt that with a 2 year old but looked great and you would see some amazing views. The booklet in the caravan is informative with information, we did have a takeaway and a taxi from the caravan without any issues. From the caravan, my girls loved seeing the Steam Train go past! The park is on the caravans doorstep and there are some lovely views from the other side of the train tracks. We did not use any of the onsite facilities but they were within a 1 minute walk of the caravan. The decking area was fantastic to eat and chill outside. We took a 1m sized paddling pool which fit on the decking with ample space. Parasol was very useful for sunny days! I would advise to take a throw if you want to sit out on the decking on an evening as it lost the sun around 5:30pm. The caravan is very well equipped regarding kitchen utensils and electricals (and of good quality). One thing I would add is that for the calibre of the caravan, a hairdryer would be useful as it is normally one item I tend to forget. The decor inside is lovely. There is a variety of DVDs which we made use of. The TV is a smart TV which would be beneficial for young children. The shower was of a great quality with good water pressure. Parking was not an issue. The communication we had from start to finish was excellent and any problems Michael was there to help and offered excellent customer service. Thank you for letting us stay in your holiday home! We had an amazing time :-)

Thank you for taking the time to write your review and share so extensively on your time at Olive Tree & the wider Torbay. This will I am sure be of great benefit to future guests. Sounds like you particularly enjoyed the decking very much, and as for the Paddling Pool, what a great idea and we think a first!! Guest suggestions are always welcome and an important way for us to improve our offering to guests, so Thank You for mentioning a Hairdryer. We will look at how we can provide one going forward. A great pleasure to have you stay, and if you ever want to return, you know how to contact us Harvey & Michael

What a fantastic holiday we had! The caravan is ideal with everything you can possibly need, and the large decking area is just lovely for a few drinks! It is perfectly positioned on the site for the amenities, access to the beach and of course for spotting the Steam Train going by - which my little boy loved! Michael your customer service is 5* and we will definitely be returning, thank you so much again for a truly wonderful stay.

Thank you for taking time to leave us such a glowing review, our 1st since reopening after Lock Down.

We will pass on the 10 rating to our Housekeeper, who will be delighted. We will be delighted for you to return to Olive Tree - you know how to find us Michael & Harvey

We were due to go down to Waterside today 22nd March, but due to the Coronavirus were advised very sensibly by Michael that they were closing their beautiful holiday home as per the Government Advise. Needless to say we were so disappointed, but also grateful that this sensible decision had been made by the owners, they did not want to put any unnecessary burden on the Local Community and did not feel it fair to us as the area and site had been all but "shut down" not pubs, no cafes etc. If only all Holiday Home owners were this sensible. The contact that we had from Michael and Harvey was first class and several options were open to us from them, but unfortunately had to receive a Refund, as were not sure when were able to go down again, but the Refund was issued almost immediately. I just wanted to say a big "Thank You" it must have been a heartbreaking decision for you both to make, but without question the most responsible for your guests and the local community as a whole. We would not hesitate to recommend booking with Harvey Michael Holidays and will be doing so ourselves when we are able.

What a surprise to receive your review, and a huge Thank You from us for taking time to write and post it, as well as the most kind words of support you have shown. For us doing the "Right Thing" was important to us, and no not an easy decision, just the one we had to make. A Thank You from us also for the open way you contributed to discussing and agreeing the cancellation, just 30 hours before you were due to check in. We fully respect your decision to take a full refund and it will be a pleasure to receive an enquiry from you in the future, once some form of normality returns to us all - You know how to contact us. Best Wishes, Please Stay Safe. Michael & Harvey

We had a fantastic weekend break, wish I could score higher. Michael was an absolute pleasure to deal with. The caravan was spotless and very well equipped and I loved the decor, we will be booking again later in the year and then next summer to take advantage of the wonderful decking area. Thanks again Michael and Harvey

What a pleasure to read your review and your comments both on our Holiday Home as well as us as Owners and the Customer Service that we delivered for you. Our Housekeeper will be delighted to learn of your feedback on her element of the cleanliness & presentation - she consistently delivers to high standards. Whenever you are ready to book again we will be delighted to receive your enquiry, and if that is to stay again before the end of 2019, all the better. Thank You Both, Michael & Harvey

We decided last Monday to get away for a while in lovely Devon. We booked at last minute and Michael was just so great to deal with. He was wonderful and helpful. While down there we had calls to see if all was ok. I had an accident while down there and he kept in touch with me to see if I was good. Such a wonderful person, fantastic large caravan with king size bed. Clean and tidy and I got my bond back the same day with extra as I had to come early due to health problem. We will come back and hopefully many more will go down there as you won’t find anything better. Thanks Michael

Thank you so much for taking time to write & post your review, particularly after your unfortunate accident at Paignton beach and needing to cut your stay short by one day. I am pleased that you found us great to deal with, that is important for us, regardless of it being a short or long stay, long lead time or last minute enquiry. I was so pleased we were able to go from your last minute enquiry to your "arrival & check in" in under 4 hours - I think that's a first for us and without compromising on service. The return of the Security Deposit the day of departure is what we aim for in every case. And after you needed to cut short your stay, through no fault of your own, then providing you a refund against the last night was the least we could do. We very much look forward to you having a speedy & full recovery. Whenever you want to return, we will be delighted to explore how we can make that happen for you, your wife & labrador. Very Best Wishes, Michael & Harvey

The olive tree is a beautifully clean and cosy home from home. From the moment we enquired about booking, Michael and Harvey were very attentive and communicating was easy, they kept us fully informed and the courtesy calls shows that they really do care about their guests experience. The facilities in the caravan were brilliant and the seating on the veranda is a lovely place to relax on a sunny day. We regularly visit Torbay and will definitely be returning soon.

Thank You for taking time to leave your review and what a pleasure to read. Consistnetly delivering that overall "Guest Experience" and customer service for all our guests, is so important to us. We look forward to welcoming you back when you are able to return. Michael & Harvey

Olive Tree is an absolute gem of a home from home, immaculately presented, squeaky clean and cosy with super comfy king size bed and spacious decked and gated verandah where we enjoyed our morning coffee and our evening glass of wine whilst our little dog sat glued to the gate waiting for the sound of the steam train as it chugged past and watching the world go by. The caravan was perfect with tasteful furnishings and appliances throughout, even the broom and dustpan/brush were colour co-ordinated to match! Michael and Harvey were the perfect hosts from the initial booking process to the thoughtful little message for our journey back home, great communication and attention to detail, they really do everything possible to make your stay most enjoyable. We would highly recommend staying at Olive Tree, its by far the nicest caravan we have stayed in and look forward to a return visit.

It is such a pleasure to read how very much you enjoyed your time at Olive Tree, which is always our aim and for all of our guests on every stay. The fact that you describe it as a "home from Home" is such a delight to hear. Thank You for Highly Recommedning us. You are most welcome to return and we look forward to hearing from you as the time is right for that. Michael & Harvey.

Really lovely caravan, spotless & interior decoration very tasteful. A lovely little home from home, being able to sit outside with a lovely glass of wine was a bonus, as well as the good weather we had that week. Michael was a pleasure to talk to from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble, even a thoughtful courtesy call to ask if we`d settled in okay. Hopefully we`ll be able to return at some point in the future.

A pleasure to read your review and kind words. We believe it is importnat to include a "Courtesy Call" so its great to hear how much you appreciated it. We hope you will be able to return in the future and look forward to receiveing an enquiry whenever your ready. Michael & Harvey

Fantastic caravan on a great site. The caravan was cleaned to such a high standard that you would've never of known that another dog had Stayed. The decking was a real plus for our pup to sit and watch the world go by whilst we enjoyed a drink in the sun. Michael and Harvey made the booking process very easy and gave great information about the surrounding area for us to explore. I would recommend this caravan to my friends and hope to visit again.

Thank You for taking time to write and post your review. We will be sure to pass on your feedback to our professional cleaner, who does a great job, time after time.

From the moment of confirming our booking with Michael and Harvey the 'customer service' we received and continued to receive throughout our wonderful holiday was outstanding. Michael and Harvey provided us with fantastic local recommendations of places that have given my Husband and I and our two children (under 5) with unforgettable memories. My husband and I are well travelled people, we have stayed in lots of lovely hotels and private villas all around the world. We can both confidently say that this beautiful Caravan in Paignton has been our most stress free holiday and was cleaner and more welcoming than anywhere we have been. From the folder in the living area packed with places to go places to eat and restaurants that deliver take out to the park, to the full sized (not a rubbish travel thing) iron in the bedroom, the attention to detail and personal touches in the caravan are fantastic and surpassed any expectations. Upon arriving at the caravan the first thing we noticed was the huge decked area. We were absolutely delighted that it was securely gated which meant our children could safely play, this was such a help as they very much enjoyed waiting outside for the next steam train to pass! (It was also a great place to lounge in the evening with a G&T!) The inside of the caravan is beautiful, immaculately clean and when we arrived smelt devine. The decor is very modern and flows throughout the whole place beautifully. We immediately felt so welcome and at home and our children were very happy with their bedroom. The Caravan is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need and we were perticulary impressed with the level of thought that has gone in providing guests with a home from home experience with extensive kitchen utensils etc. We also really appreciated the children's plates and bowls, it is the little things like this that just give us one less thing to worry about! We both would like to thank Michael and Harvey for making our time together as a family in Paignton as magical as it was. Without you guys we wouldn't have been to half of the amazing places we did. We can't thank you enough!! There are no ' ifs and maybes' we WILL be back!!

We are both so pleased if we have been able to contribute in some small way to the the enjoyment, happiness and unforgettable memories, of your time together as a family on holiday at "Olive Tree" and the Torbay area. We very much believe that it is the "Customer Service" that brings all the other parts of an "Olive Tree" experience together and for us is so important. Thank you so much for posting your review. We will be delighted to welcome you back with open arms. Michael & Harvey

Having read all the previous reviews I can only say I agree with everything they have written. The caravan was spotlessly clean ,and Michael done everything he could to make my stay a pleasure. By the time my holiday ended he seemed more like a friend than just the caravan owner. So thank you Michael and wish you all the best in the future.

Fabulous! The caravan is home from home from the matching decor to all the amenities with in the caravan.It was cleaned to a very high standard. Thank you to Michael for keeping me fully informed by email and text and it was a little bonus to receive a text on arrival to say the caravan was ready earlier than expected and then a phone call the following day to make sure we were settled in. I visit Torbay regularly so will definitely book this caravan again.

We have just returned from taking our 7 year old granddaughter away for a couple of nights to this wonderful caravan. It was her first stay away in a caravan and she adored every moment of it.
