I enjoyed a truly happy and memorable stay at Acorns. Situated on a picturesque tree lined street, with a variety of shops and coffee bars within walking distance - the location is super central, safe and convenient. The Funky Budget unit has a great feel, and was equipped with all that I needed. Pam, Wiggy and Staff are incredibly warm, welcoming and attentive hosts. I would stay there again any day!

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Acorns on 8th. The accommodation was clean whilst Pam was the perfect host. The garden provided the perfect private space to relax and swim whilst our miniature duchshund explored the secured garden.

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.

I had the opportunity to stay at Acorns 8 for a 2 month period whilst on business in Johannesburg. The garden cottage offered me a very tranquil environment to escape the hussel and bussel of Johannesburg. Surrounded by lush green trees and shrubs, it truly creates an atmosphere that is ideal to unwind in. Pam and Wiggy were awesome hosts and were always on standby to lend a helping hand or provide information with regards to the broader area. Furthermore, the staff on the premises were exceptional. Not only were they extremely efficient and effective, they were also very friendly which added to the homely ambience fostered by this beautiful place. Above everything else, I trully enjoyed the fact that Acorns 8 is very accessible and close to everything that one would need during your stay. (Stones throw away from trendy coffee shops, premium Rosebank Virgin Active, Rosebank Mall, petrol stations, sports bars.... the list goes on). Hopefully I get the chance to stay at Acorns 8 in the future.

My family stayed for a week during the school holidays. My husband and I stayed in the garden cottage and the kids had their own pad in the budget flat. Everybody had everything they needed ie off street parking, security, great accommodation, the units were serviced on week days, privacy and a lovely garden. Great location at a reasonable price.

My stay was for two weeks, was attending an internship at one of the offices in Rosebank. everyone from the accommodation was so welcoming and did beyond their best to ensure I had a comfortable stay. The service I received was just too wonderful, the rooms were spotless and had all the necessary essentials. My stay Acorns on 8th was just perfect.
