Thank you Jamie for an amazing stay! You were the perfect host, even offering to drive me to the doctor. Nice and quiet, perfect home away from home. Loved the homely feel, very convenient and safe. Thank you!

A beautiful place to stay.The owner was of great assistance before and during our stay at Moonflower.The place is near to the JHB CBD as well. We had a great stay and will stay there when we are in Johannesburg in future.

Moonflower is a very nice place to stay at. Service is professional and we had no trouble with the accounting or facilities. Worth every cent if you compare that with all the other guest houses in the area. We would definitely choose Moonflower again. Also very well located in the centre of all the buzz, especially if you use the... More

We received a warm friendly reception on arrival by owner Jamie, who was extremely efficient in assisting with our luggage, showing us everything in the room and making us feel very welcome. The property is very central and close to a shopping mall with easy access to freeways and Sandton etc. We will definitely return

I stayed at Moonflower for nearly a month now. Unfortunately I have to leave in a few days. It's an excellent place. Whether you're here on business or just vacationing. It's the place to be. Look no further. Jamie, the owner is awesome and always makes sure that you're comfortable and enjoying your stay. Housekeeping and garden staff are wonderful.... More

We experienced four weeks of pure joy, generous hospitality and a feeling for the true Johannesburg. When it comes to Jamie, owner of Moonflower cottages, you have to mention that he is a man of very good manners and a fine sense of humor. He guides you around his beautiful garden which reminds you easily of Eden, will dedicate all... More
