My wife and I stayed for two months in a two-bedroom apartment in Craighall Park. The flat is in a secure complex, very close to a Spar grocery store. It is serviced daily - Monday to Friday - by a wonderful on-site help whose husband does many odd-jobs around the flat. The flat has a wonderful and sunny garden -... More

Acorns apartments is the best option for short and long stays in Johannesburg. The service is excellent, the location very good in a very nice area, close to Rosebank and with very good transportation service with Sandton and Johannesburg with Gautrain and private car. Being my first visit to Johannesburg I was concerned about safety, and after one year I... More

We spent 6 wonderful nights at Acorns. Very cosy and spacious cottage. It feels very secure and safe. Good and quiet neighborhood and close to all amenities too. Will visit again anytime whether on business or on holiday. Pam and Wiggie are excellent hosts. Keep it up. Please could you organise for a credit card payment facility, it will make... More

Spent two lovely evenings at Acorns. The 'Apartment' was exactly the type of accommodation which my partner and I were looking for: private; spacious; comfortable; self-catering; and beautifully decorated. It is extremely well situated, and is a quick drive to most popular nodes such as Rosebank Mall, Melrose Arch, Sandton, and the Jhb C.B.D. It is surrounded by a variety... More

We started our trip to South Africa in Johannesburg and unfortunately we only stayed one night with Pam and Wiggie. We really had a fantastic time! It was the best and most hearty start of our holiday we could imagine! The apartment is really pretty, well-spaced and in the same time cosy. We really felt at ease. It’s centrally located... More

I moved in at Acorns for a period of 3 months and had all the reluctance to leave when the time came. In just 3 months i had become so engrained in Dears Pam and Wiggie's family and will be for a lifetime owing to the warmth and love they extended to me. I cannot think of any other service... More

Pam and Wiggie went out of their way to make us feel at home and comfortable. The cottage was equipped with everything one could think of and tastefully decorated. The location was fantastic.. a lovely neighborhood to walk in and close to the Rosebank Mall and Clinic and, as others have said, some verynice restaurants. Most of all, it was... More

Couldn't have been more pleased.  Spacious, centrally located, more than reasonably priced for all the amenities provided.   Situated in a lovely neighborhood within walking distance of terrific restaurants and having an even lovelier hostess and host. They were wonderful and warm conversationalists who made us feel all the luckier for our serendipitous discovery of this home away from home. ... More

We booked Acorns on the advice of locals, and it exceeded our expectations in every way. Pam and Wiggie were wonderful. They took time to answer our questions and give recommendations. The apartment was spacious and SO comfortable. It's also convenient to the outstanding Local Grill restaurant - walking distance!!! Check Wiggie's website: whyjoburg.com.

My boyfriend and I decided to go to South Africa for the World Cup. As if booking a hotel internationally isn't hard enough, doing it during the world cup became significantly more difficult. Luckily, I came across Acorns on 8th, and loved the idea of staying in a cottage. I contacted Pam, and she was fantastic! Not only was she... More
