My husband and I stayed at Shepherd's Corner for 5 weeks when we first moved to Joburg. We are so happy we found this place. It was really our apartment for the time we were there. Shiona, the owner, is lovely and very helpful. She and her family live in the main house and they have built 1-2 bedroom apartments onto their house. We stayed in Silver Birch. It was totally private and had a huge private outdoor space. But they we also had access to the fresh water pool and beautiful gardens. There was AC in the bedroom and the wifi worked great. I highly recommend staying here if you don't love the typical corporate apartments. You will feel right at home at Shepherd's Corner.

The quality of the cottages/rooms was only surpassed by the exceptional hospitality of Jazz and Shiona.They take care of everything and are mindful of all your needs, including privacy. We can wholeheartedly recommend this exquisite Guest House based on its location, the quality of the complete service and the beautiful and tranquil garden. Peace and quiet like we have seldom seen. Another important observation: the quality of the bed was outstanding. Both mattress, duvet and size (King+) were the reason we slept like babies. This place has to be on your bucket list if you come to Johannesburg!

Shiona and Jazz are wonderful, kind & patient hosts. Place is absolutely beautiful and their 2 dogs (whose names I’ve forgotten, sorry!) are huge dears. We stayed in the treetop room & it’s so quaint, yet attention to detail is impeccable. A curated breakfast (with delicious options) is delivered to your doorstep & you get to enjoy it in the comfort of your own place. & of course wi-fi is at its best :) highly recommend this place to anyone visiting JoBurg for the first time!

Sherpherds Corner Guest House is absolutely gorgeous and the hosts Shiona and Jazz are the friendliest, warmest people I’ve met since moving to Johannesburg. I was pleasantly surprised when they showed me to my room which was more of a well equipped self catering apartment. The apartment itself was tastefully decorated and very spacious. My daughters loved the garden, calling it magical. I would highly recommend this Guest House for both leisure and business travelers.

This is a delightful small boutique hotel/guest house/air b & b set in luscious gardens with a wild pool. Pool has grasses and plants all natural- with swimming in middle. A bit too cool for swimming on our visit. We arrived and were greeted by the owner, Shiana, who drove us to a restaurant where we had a wonderful Greek meal. We ordered our breakfast selections the evening before and it was delivered to our two bedroom two bath two level private cottage with our own planted yard with outdoor table and sitting areas. For us, having denied well traveled New Yorkers, this was so much nicer than a big sterile impersonal hotel. The kitchen is well-equipped. It would be easy to prepare meals and eat in. Clothes washer and dryer complete almost all the conveniences of home. A group of three women, sailers from City Island New York, would return and stay here anytime even though there are no sailboats within view. We stayed two nights after a long tedious journey from New York and this private cottage was an oasis in a lovely way to start a trip. I highly recommend this accommodation and give it five stars
