Stayed here for one night at the end of our south african trip. Needed a Sat Nav to find it but worth it. Lovely greeting from Richard who filled us in on everything we needed to know! Quaint house full of antiques and with a homely old fashion look but comfortable and breakfast was good. Its advantage is being in... More

This is a lovely B and B with very comfortable rooms, friendly staff and good breakfasts. It is two minutes to walk to Melville,s main street with all it's shops and cafes. My only criticism would be the trip we were sold to Soweto which was e pensive short and rather stuffy. Other than that an excellent stay.

I was part of the Deutche Welle team of international journalists that covered the 2010 FIFA World Cup. We stayed at Die Agterplaas for the who six week period. We had a very good time at the guest house whose meaning from Africaans to English we were told means 'The Backyard.' The staff is very friendly, the food is lovely.... More

The highlight of this stay was that they arranged for an older black gentleman nicknamed Opa to show us around downtown Joburg and Soweto. He had lived through apartheid and the struggles of the 70s, 80s, and 90s. He took us to all the sights...Apartheid Museum, Desmond Tutu's church, Mandela's house, the sights in Soweto. The Band B is in... More

Die Agterplaas was a fantastic place to stay. My friend and I couldn't have asked for better hospitality. The rooms were so clean, and service was impeccable. Take their advice to have an escort if you want to go up to the street with shops and bars. The staircase leading up there is definitely a bit sketchy!

I have stayed at this beautifully kept guesthouse at least eight times in the last 5 years. Hospitality, cleanliness, and proximity to the bohemian and safe 7th street are all bonuses to be had. The staff are amongst the most helpful I have encountered in my travels to all continents and I would commend them to visitors. Die Agterplaas is... More

Our stay at Die Agterplaas was pleasant. Upon check-in, staff was extremely helpful navigating the myriad of keys you'll need to get in and out of the house and garage. It's literally a short walk (up the stairs!) to 7th Street in Melville. Rooms are charming and comfortable. Main complaint is that they serve only breakfast until 9:15 am, so... More
