Our Johannesburg Accommodation, or Johannesburg Self-catering Accommodation, is a poolside garden cottage in one of Johannesburg's safest and most desireable suburbs.
The cottage, for 2 persons sharing, opens onto an indigenous garden with pool

The space

A poolside garden unit in upmarket Parktown North - one of Johannesburg's safest and most desireable suburbs.
The cottage, which caters for 2 persons sharing, opens out onto an attractive and tranquil indigenous garden with large pool. We can link it to a breakaway room to then accommodate 4 people.

PLEASE NOTE!
Due to a severe drought and ensuing water restrictions, a plastic cover has been put on the pool.
You're welcome to swim, but the cover needs first to be removed and then replaced to prevent evaporation.

The sleeping area has a modern, custom made King-size bed (that can be seperated into twin beds), comfortable wingback lounging chairs, a work space/dining table with chairs as well as built-in cupboard space with an electronic safe, and a TV with a full satellite channel boquet.

The bathroom has a shower and heated towel

The kitchen includes a microwave, a large fridge and a 4-plate stove with oven and is equipped with all the necessary kitchen utensils, as well as the basic everyday essentials, such as sugar, tea, and coffee.

The unit is serviced Monday to Saturday.

Parking is on-site and behind a remote controlled gate.

A laundry and ironing service is available at an additional cost.

Guest access

Guests have their own private entrance to the Garden Cottage, with secure parking for one car as well as direct access to the indigenous garden and swimming pool.

Interaction with guests

My husband was nicknamed "Professor Johannesburg" by a previous guest, after sharing his vast knowledge of the city and surrounds with them.
He'll happily share this knowledge with new guests.

Other things to note

Parktown North is one of Johannesburg's safest suburbs, with a very pro-active precinct police station and a good security presence.

Pam contacted me the day before my booking to finalize arrangements. I had booked on behalf of my elderly parents and Pam was most accommodating of their requirements. The garden cottage is lovely and suited my folks perfectly. Warm and cosy during the cold spell here in Joburg with access to the garden and pool and very private. Everything was spotless and feedback from my folks is that they were most comfortable - bed lovely, heated towel rail in the bathroom, a great kitchen with all amenities. Pam and Wiggy were great hosts, very accommodating of all requests and most helpful. I feel their accommodation provides great value and is very convenient to Parkhurst and Parktown North restaurants and shops - everything within a very easy walk. A great experience overall, thank you both so much!! From my parents also!

Pam and Wiggy were wonderful hosts! The cottage space was quiet, and cozy and perfect for a weekend away. We loved the location in Parktown North, ideal for walking to restaurants nearby and also a quick walk to Parkhurst. It was a wonderful stay and we would definitely stay again!

Pam and Wiggy were amazing. They welcomed us warmly and made us feel at home immediately. We were tired from two long flights and needed rest and relaxation - we got both. Our hosts were always available to proide information and ensured our safety and well being. The cottage felt like home, the king bed extremely comfortable and we had free access to the beautiful garden and pool. We would highly recommend staying there and we would happliy return.

I've been in the short term hospitality business since 1994, and pride myself in having a good idea of what guest's needs are.

Established in April of 2004, Acorns on 8th has been a great success and constantly in demand.

I have the added advantage that my husband is passionate about Southern Africa and more than happy to share his knowledge with guests.
His whyjoburg website highlights his passion for the city!
