The accommodation is very well situated, close to countless restaurants, the Rosebank Mall and the Rosebank Gautrain Station; all of which are within walking distance of the guesthouse. The service was simply bliss. I...

We stayed as a couple in the flat for about a week. It's truly a home away from home, you will feel safe and comfortable right away. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would need down to tea and coffee, and the hosts are wonderful. The bed comes with heated blankets for the winter and the water is...

We stayed at this accommodation in December 2015 for nearly 3 weeks. We loved it! A perfect haven, peaceful and quiet and yet within easy reach of everywhere we wanted to go. The cottage had everything we needed and was clean and bright and very well set out. Excellent swimming pool, wonderful in the very hot weather we had. Lovely...

Spent two lovely evenings at Acorns. The 'Apartment' was exactly the type of accommodation which my partner and I were looking for: private; spacious; comfortable; self-catering; and beautifully decorated. It is extremely well situated, and is a quick drive to most popular nodes such as Rosebank Mall, Melrose Arch, Sandton, and the Jhb C.B.D. It is surrounded by a variety...
