It appears that nothing is too much trouble for Christopher and his team, as they go about their business making your stay as hassle-free as possible. The property itself is set in a quiet cul-de-sac, yet close to major freeways to get almost anywhere you need to in the northern suburbs as quickly as possible. Fantastically comfortable bed with crisp... More

A sudden medical emergency took my wife and I to JoBurg. Not much time to research accomodations. Green Gables is located near the Sunninghill hospital so appeared to fit our needs. And it most certainly did! First, our online experience. Christopher, the host, and Evelyn, his secretary, provided fast and accurate communication to all our questions. They arranged a driver...

Excellent bed and breakfast in a safe and quiet suburb in the Sandton area of Johannesburg. Wonderfully comfortable and well-maintained rooms and gardens, and a very welcoming host, which made for a restful and restorative stay. Convenient Gautrain bus stop less than 100m up the hill, made for a pleasant trip to the airport on my way out of South... More

I normally stay in 5-star hotels so Green Gables was really unusual for me. But I'm so glad I stayed. It made me realise how important 'connection' really is. And the host at Green Gables, Christopher Hughes, is a Master at it. He's a character — one that could well be on every travel show you see. My morning breakfasts... More

Just outside the hectic of Jo'burg. Wonderful gardens, swimmingpool (small but good enough), convenient rooms, helpfull owner + staff and delicious breakfast. All you need to explore Jo'burg, Sandton, Rivonia and even Pretoria. Very nearby the M1 Motorway and only 20 minutes from OR Tambo airport. The place to be!

Despite the fact I spend most of my time at my office the whole 3 weeks at Green Gables have been wonderful. It was quiet, relaxing and the view from my room on the garden was breathtaking. The Service was \"5 Stars\" and you have a love to the detail. I definitely will come back. I definitely will recommend you... More

We were required to make a hasty trip to South Africa (our first) due to Penny's brother hospitalized at Sunninghill Hospital in Rivonia. I quickly chose lodging by randomly selecting a facility that met our criteria for such an event--close to the hospital and one that served breakfast. Upon arrival at Green Gables, we were gratefully amazed at the helpfulness... More

Stayed here for 5 days with a colleague on business trip. Met christopher, the charming still-single owner (hint! hint!). Serves simple breakfast in his cosy kitchen with a dash of his witty and wise cracks on current issues and his number one love, diving. Beds were very comfortable and rooms were very clean and equipped with heated flooring, flat screen... More

Glad that Green Gables is finally listed on TripAdvisor, as I and my colleagues have been staying there whenever we are in Johannesburg. I find it truly peaceful, it has a beautiful garden, very greeny plushed trees (during spring and summers) all around and is close to a number of restaurants. It is a mere 15 minutes drive from Sandton... More
