I just returned from a 5-week journey to South Africa. Based on earlier reviews on TA I chose the Sunrock Guesthouse for my first night in the country. I also stayed there my last night before returning home on October 10, 2011. In my view there is simply no other place to stay in Jo'Burg and especially near the airport. The price for the accomodation is the best you will find in the airport area. Request a pick up at the airport on your arrival and Henry will be there with a smile on his face to welcome you. Arrive at the Sunrock and Ina will welcome you while her husband Arthur will begin telling stories of South African lore and adventure and he will do so with his huge Scarlet Macaw attached to his shoulder. You can also purchase an evening meal for a little more than the B and B price and the well stocked bar has several libations to quench your thirst. I felt completely safe and very much at "home" during both of my stays here. If you have a departure flight later in the day you can hang out in the pool or just lounge around in one of the beach chairs. On your return to the airport Henry will be there with the van ready to take you to your flight whenever you need to go. This was my first trip to South Africa and I couldn't have chosen a better place to start or end the journey. I think you will feel the same way.
