The rooms are luxurious and extremely neat. After my warm rest I was overwhelmed the next morning being served with a wonderful breakfast . I was treated like an... More

Thank you very much Helene, I loved our little chats while sitting in the afternoon sun by the pool. I do hope that your studies are going well in the windy city. And hopefully the wind blows you back our way. Thank you More

I've just stayed at Avondhu for a total of three nights with my husband and children during a wonderful holiday to South Africa. It really was a home from home and we were made to feel so welcome. The rooms were very comfortable, the breakfasts delicious and the kids enjoyed the facilities - tennis and, to everyone's great amusement, the... More

I have used Avondhu as a base for number of visits to South Africa and can with great happiness and comfort say that Stephanie and team has maintained the superb service provided by Dea and Paddy. The location, rooms, breakfast and service all excellent. Still the best spot in Jhb for a late afternoon braai! Will be back!

In fact this was a really pleasant experience. I felt truly comfortable and enjoyed the easygoing friendly, caring atmosphere. A lot of it was down to Steffi the manager... More

This owner-run establishment was very comfortable and homely. Avondhu Guest House was clean and well maintained. Breakfast included a wide variety of cereal, muffins, eggs, bacon, jams, cheeses, fruits, coffees, etc. I enjoyed great service... More

I stay at Avondhu Guest every 3 months for 1 week whenever I come up for business and this BnB never fails to supply the element of home :) Warm, cosy, spacious, very safe and a wonderful friendly experience.
