Reviewed August 27, 2010

I have stayed at this beautifully kept guesthouse at least eight times in the last 5 years. Hospitality, cleanliness, and proximity to the bohemian and safe 7th street are all bonuses to be had. The staff are amongst the most helpful I have encountered in my travels to all continents and I would commend them to visitors. Die Agterplaas is a worthwhile experience and compares so favourably to tthe colder environs of the Mall-based hotels in Jo'burg. Anybody wishing to work at the Universities or who is in transit couldn't find a better place to stay. Jannie, Santa, Tilly, Richarrd and the other staff make the place special and complement the beautiful oregon pine floored interior with their warmth and attention to their guests. Relax to Classic FM over Badia's wonderful breakfast, then visit so many of Jo'burgs attractions whcih are so close . Thes incude Lion Parks, Lakes, the Apartheid Museum etc. Tours of Soweto are an excellent option from this location. Personally I can't wait to go back! and spend some more time at Die Agterplaas.

Our stay at Die Agterplaas was pleasant. Upon check-in, staff was extremely helpful navigating the myriad of keys you'll need to get in and out of the house and garage. It's literally a short walk (up the stairs!) to 7th Street in Melville. Rooms are charming and comfortable. Main complaint is that they serve only breakfast until 9:15 am, so you'll need to be an early riser to partake of that (we didn't).
