Had a lovely two night stay at the guest house we could not fault a thing. Excellent rooms, great breakfast and lovely owners. The little touches really make it a fantastic place to stay. The owner David went above and beyond by being very accommodating.

Friendly hosts, nice breakfast, clean, quiet. On the downside a bit hard to find without GPS. Reasonable prices for transportation from and to the airport as well as other attractions in Johannesburg.
