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.

Such a peaceful place amidst the business of Johannesburg. A beautifully appointed apartment and very spacious. Truly appreciated the extra mile Shiona and Jazz went to during our stay. We will absolutely be back with our family.

We really enjoyed our stay at Shepherd's Corner. The garden is beautiful and full of bird life. The accommodation is very comfortable and we made ourselves completely at home. Jazz and Shiona are excellent hosts who put so much care and attention to every detail.

We stayed in one of the larger units and it was wonderful! The amount of space available to us was completely unexpected. Massive bedroom, very large lounge area, and a very big bathroom. The kitchen was also very nicely sized and well stocked for our needs. This unit had the most cupboard space that I have ever come across in accommodations during my travels, and my wife loved it! The outside area was also wonderfully tranquil, and we felt as if we were in a small town, rather than Johannesburg.

The owner and staff were super friendly! Our privacy was very well respected (as we are slightly reclusive) but the owner was easily accessible when the need arose.

Wifi was very stable and served us well at approx. 10 MB/s. Satellite television also provided enough entertainment for our stay...

I would highly recommend this place to anyone. It is very centrally located with numerous shopping malls and places of entertainment around. The location is also perfect if you are planning to travel in and around Johannesburg.

The suite was ground floor and remarkably spacious; the lounge and kitchenette easily held a full dining table as well as a number of comfy lounge suites. Bedroom fairly spacious, but also had an adjacent wardrobe and dressing room. The bathroom was my favorite; large built in bath, and a massive walk-in shower! Breakfast was superb, there's a brilliant garden (for sneaky smokers) and organic/natural pool, the decor and design is wonderful, and service was top notch. Absolutely recommend.

All i can say is WOW!!! Will stay here again if watching a show at Monte, 10 mins from Monte Casino, easy to find. Private and Secure. Continental breakfast left in the apartment to have on private patio at your own convenience. Charmaine is welcoming and puts all at ease. If i could give more stars i would. Will most definitely be back.

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.
