Flamingo Rest is proud to announce that it has a new owner, Natacha Johnston and the guesthouse has a whole new look to be proud of. We have a collection of self-contained garden flats with en-suite bathrooms and kitchenette facilities which consist of a microwave, small bar fridge, and a coffee/tea station. All guests have access to the central swimming pool and lounge area where you can come and enjoy your breakfast next to the pool. We're very centrally located, near Montecasino and the Gautrain drop-off point. A great range of bars, restaurants and shops are in very close proximity and there is a grocery store just around the corner. Our rooms are well-sized, comfortable and uncluttered - perfect for spending a night or two in Fourways or for longer stays. Features of home and the attention to detail of guest house living allow for the freedom to rest and recoup after a long day in the city. All of our rooms have free WiFi access and a laundry service can be provided on request, at a small additional charge. Public transport (Gautrain bus) is within a 10 minute walking distance from the property. Uber taxis usually take 3-10 minutes to arrive. We also have secure undercover parking. The manager is on hand to answer any questions or to help, should it be required. Nestled in the heart of Fourways, trees and peace prevail. Our boomed off suburb has been newly equipped with CCTV on main street corners. Fourways is situated in Sandton, Johannesburg, a fast developing commercial and residential hub which is a continuous hustle and bustle of activity. There is always something going on and Fourways boasts a large number of attractions as well as activities for all different preferences. Some of the main attractions in Fourways are The Fourways Mall, Montecasino and the Fourways Crossing. Situated in the heart of one of Johannesburg's most prestigious suburbs, The Fourways Mall has accommodated, entertained and delivered for over a decade continuing to welcome guests from both near and far. This spectacular mall is the first of the large malls in the area and any shoppers delight. It offers a unique and exciting shopping experience to the community and tourists in one. In addition, with extended trading hours and over 170 excellent stores, shoppers can enjoy a fabulous shopping experience. Free parking and 24 hour security allow customers to shop, browse, enjoy a refreshing cup of coffee or dine in a relaxed and tranquil environment at any one of the numerous restaurants and coffee shops. Fourways Crossing is a "factory mall" style complex. The centre is 9 years old and boasts a size of over 47, 000 m². Designed on 3 levels with 3 levels of parking, the centre is an open-air centre anchored by the Pick ‘n Pay. It is also home to the worlds largest travel shop, Pick ‘n Pay's all new management and staff training institute and one of the largest sporting goods warehouse in the Southern Hemisphere! The balance of the centre is made up of approximately 95 shops. Tenant mix is rather varied to suit all preferences and is very upmarket. Montecasino is Gauteng's premier entertainment destination. The R1.4 billion gaming, retail and leisure complex is the flagship development of Tsogo Sun. Once can spend an evening with the high-rollers in the casino, take in the majestic beauty of their feathered friends in the Montecasino Bird Gardens, spend the day in play with fun for the whole family, watch a movie or a show, shop till you drop, have a great night out or simply enjoy a quiet meal in one of their many restaurants and coffee shops. It's definitely the place to be! For those who prefer to be outdoors amongst nature, there is a diversity of thrilling and entertaining activities all set in spectacular surroundings. These include abseiling, river rafting, canoeing, horse riding, bird watching, fishing, golfing and so much more. There is something here for everyone.

My stay was amazing, the staff was so friendly, the place is beautiful and clean it was the perfect place to unwind. I will definitely come back again. I love the fact that they also provided essentials such as utensils, plates, and glasses that really came in handy. Keep up the good work and thank you for the amazing experience.

We were there for the fourth time in 2 years. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable and the service is great. Patrons were also very friendly and loving - our little one enjoyed talking to the old lady.
Breakfast was out of this world - that's what our kids love the most.

We stayed at this bed and breakfast but got up too early to ever get a hot breakfast and the cold breakfasts were literally like airplane meals. Not particularly edible. The rooms were fine, but this was more of a renovated house or maybe old hotel(?) than a contemporary housing experience. I'd rather stay at a moderate hotel than here.

I had a wonderful stay, the staff was wonderful and accommodating. Especially with my blind dog. Breakfast and dinner was excellent. They even served it in my room since I couldn't leave my dog alone. The day before his operation he even got his own plate of oxtail! Thanks a million.

Room was clean and comfortable with little kitchen. However, fittings are starting to look a little tired. Breakfast was good a filling. Beautiful grounds with a pool. Host Vee was bubbly and welcoming. Safe onsite undercover parking was also provided.

Flamingo Rest Guesthouse was a fantastic establishment for us to stay at on our 7 day visit to Johannesburg. We had a stressful week but each night came back to our comfortable suite. Nice and quiet, comfortable beds, pillows and anything we needed. Tasty wholesome breakfast to start our days too. We will definitely be back. Highly recommended.
