Our arrival into South Africa was in JoBurg. Karen and her staff made it a very soft landing. Karen helped us get oriented and her staff were super friendly and helpful. It's a quiet spot in a great neighborhood, full of interesting history. If you are Jewish or have any interest in Jewish-SA history, you definitely want to stay here. There is a nice billiard table and a pool. Breakfast was excellent, with gourmet coffee. Fantastic Indian food a block away. Great place to start our tour of South Africa.

I stayed at Uxolo for one night while in Johannesburg for business and I couldn't have been more pleased. Karen is a fantastic host and she instantly made my colleague and I feel welcome. The house itself is just lovely and we loved sitting by the pool and enjoying our delicious breakfast. Comfy beds, nice spacious bathroom, fast wifi, and a very friendly staff. We will definitely be back again!

I stayed at Uxolo only for one night but very much enjoyed the superior room with its modern and convenient facilities as well as other amenities like the tasteful breakfast. Karen and the staff were very friendly and made it easy to feel home during my stay. The area is quiet and safe, shopping and restaurants are in walking distance. The Uxolo will be my first choice when returning to Johannesburg.

Home away from home! Really!!! Staff are polite and attentive. Ambience is calm. Neighborhood is safe and easily accessed to all of Joburg. I wouldn't stay anywhere else because the personal touches set Uxolo apart from other accommodations.

We had a wonderful time at Uxolo Gardens Guest House. The neighborhood is lovely and safe, and there's gated parking available. The house itself is beautiful, and the breakfast is a real treat. The neighborhood isn't as readily walkable at night as perhaps Melville, but many restaurants are a very short drive away. We'd definitely love to stay here again if we travel back to Joburg.
