Flamingo Rest is a collection of self-contained garden flats with en-suite bathrooms and private self-catering kitchenette facilities which make a night of dining in a treat. All guests have access to the central swimming pool and outdoor bar and lounge area. 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 term 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 owner of the property lives on the property and 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.

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.
