Great, cozy place to stay in JoBurg. I felt like I was staying at someones house and really appreciated the level of care they take to accomodate each of their guests. This was my first times traveling solo somewhere and from the moment I arrived I felt well taken care of. The staff is very accommodating and the owner was more than flexible with my constantly changing travel plans. If you're thinking of doing a tour while in JoBurg I would definitely recommend the ones offered through the guesthouse. I'm not usually much of a tour girl but Jaco spoke to me about them when he picked me up from the airport and I figured it wouldn't hurt. I ended up being carted around by him 3 days in a row and loved it!
The rooms are great, lots of space, light and some with outdoor areas. They have electric blankets on the beds which in the winter is the best thing ever! The other guests staying there at the time were wonderful and so friendly. It was great to have people to chat with and even go out with as a solo traveler. I was not expecting that which was a great bonus!
The breakfasts are great, fresh and a great variety. I have a special love of the french toast - so yummy!
Just something small to note, they are next to a school so certain rooms are closer to that and offer a built in alarm clock during weekdays :) Nothing awful but just good to know. Also there is no phone in the room which was tough for me since my phone decided not to work at all there. Otherwise I have nothing but good things to say about this place. Highly recommended!
