I stayed for an extended period of time, but enjoyed my stay. The play was lovely - the room, the grounds etc. The staff were all very friendly and helpful - Chris, Joe and Georgina. I'd certainly recommend the place.

I stayed at La Bougain Villa for just over two weeks on a business trip to Jozi in mid winter. Sadly I did not get to use the tennis court or pool but the location is central to many good restaurants and shopping destinations (Hyde Park, Parkhurst and Rosebank). The staff accommodated my every need - breakfast on the run...

We stayed at La Bougain Villa to recover from jet lag and to explore Joburg before taking off for a Kruger safari. The villa is in a very safe and quiet neighborhood, walking distance to the Rosebank shops and restaurants, Gautrain and the African Market. Our room was lovely and well stocked with coffee, tea, biscuits and fruit. Chris, the...

We stayed here in April 2013 for ten nights. Our self contained rooms were well equipped and comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious and elegantly presented. Our visit coincided with a difficult time for the Richard's family but the welcome from them, from Georgina, the housekeeper and Joe the gardener could not have been warmer. The location in Dunkeld was convenient for...

We stayed at La Bougain Villa for 4 wonderful comfortable nights and were delighted with the warm hospitality of Fay and Chris. It was our (some of our party's ) first visit to Joburg and the very spacious accommodation of their beautiful manor was lovely. They were so helpful in giving us directions, answering questions, looking things up for us,...
