Come and spend a night with us, in one of our three comfortable and stylishly furnished self-contained units, each with their own private entrance. We're situated in a secure and relaxed environment, in the tree-lined and sought after up-market suburb of Parktown North - one of the "Parks" in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg. The garden cottage opens out onto an attractive and tranquil indigenous garden with a large pool. The apartment opens out onto a spacious first floor balcony. Come and spend a night, or more, with us. We now can also offer a budget unit.

We stayed for one (1) Week at Acorns, wonderful, quiet nights. Very nice environment, they were more than just helpful, we felt like family, in fact we were HOME. Relaxed, not pretentious, the hospitality was just beyond measure. PAM and WIGIE were just more than willing to assist in almost everything. May you please do this to many others. We are more than willing to spend some time again at your place. It is close enough to most things especially, Gautrain Station, and a short drive to excellent malls. It's on our "must stay" list for Joburg

The accommodation is great, for a family of four (two teenage girls included), we managed comfortably with one room and sleeper couch and self catering amenities. The location is a walking distance to restaurants and a Woolworth supermarket. The neighborhood felt very safe!

I spent 2 months at Acorns on 8th and my stay couldn't be better. The place is super confortable, it felt just great to arrive home after work and enjoy the place. I had a little terrace for my own that opened to the pool, which is the charm of the house. The hosts are absolutely lovely, super helpful and are happy to show you around, offer a lift to the mall or even take you to one the game reserves. And finally, the location is great: you have shops 5 min walking and cafes and pubs at a 10min walking distance. Plus, it's a safe area.
