I stayed at La Bougain Villa for just over two weeks on a business trip to Jozi in mid winter. Sadly I did not get to use the tennis court or pool but the location is central to many good restaurants and shopping destinations (Hyde Park, Parkhurst and Rosebank). The staff accommodated my every need - breakfast on the run... More

We stayed at La Bougain Villa to recover from jet lag and to explore Joburg before taking off for a Kruger safari. The villa is in a very safe and quiet neighborhood, walking distance to the Rosebank shops and restaurants, Gautrain and the African Market. Our room was lovely and well stocked with coffee, tea, biscuits and fruit. Chris, the... More

My husband and I went to Jo'burg for 3 days to visit friends and we were looking for a place that was close to where they lived so they could meet us at restaurants and we could visit. La Bougain Villa is in a nice and quiet street, yet very conveniently located in Dunkeld, close to restaurants, shops and Santon/Rosebank... More

We stayed here in April 2013 for ten nights. Our self contained rooms were well equipped and comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious and elegantly presented. Our visit coincided with a difficult time for the Richard's family but the welcome from them, from Georgina, the housekeeper and Joe the gardener could not have been warmer. The location in Dunkeld was convenient for... More

La Bougain Villa is a little Paradise in Sandton, Jo.burg. We stayed 10 days here and enjoyed great hospitality and excellent service. We can recommend La Bougain Villa to everybody and will return at the next occasion. Markus and Hans

I stay at La Bougain Villa every time I visit Johannesburg... usually twice a year... and can thoroughly recommend it. Beautiful setting, centrally located, secure parking and friendly, helpful, welcoming staff and hosts... excellent value for money! A most private and peaceful haven.... just completed my 4th visit and i am already looking forward to the next!

We stayed at La Bougain Villa for 4 wonderful comfortable nights and were delighted with the warm hospitality of Fay and Chris. It was our (some of our party's ) first visit to Joburg and the very spacious accommodation of their beautiful manor was lovely. They were so helpful in giving us directions, answering questions, looking things up for us,... More

Our five days in this beautiful B&B cannot be over rated. There are only 5-stars available and our lovely hostess deserves them all. The quiet home, beautiful grounds and comfortable rooms, with outstanding breakfasts. Even have robes for guests in the room as would any 5-star facility. Faye was most helpful and gave us the best places for dinner. While... More
