Over the Moon has a homely, friendly, and peaceful atmosphere while providing all the convenience and comfort you need when traveling. The rooms are extremely spacious with superb views of the Joburg skyline from the balconies, especially during Jacaranda time. The beautiful, spacious garden and large swimming pool offer a wonderful space to relax in, take a stroll or go for a refreshing swim - hard to believe you're in the middle of a city! The host, Christine, takes care of all your needs in a way that makes you feel at home right away. The facility runs on solar energy, so no load-shedding woes. Over the Moon is highly recommended for your next trip to Johannesburg.

My sister and I were welcomed in a friendly and professional manner by Christine who is a wonderful and caring hostess. Rooms were spotless and the fruit on the desk as well as flowers on the bed were a classy touch. The view from the house is spectacular. Breakfasts were 5 star and Christine cooked us a simple but gourmet meal at short notice on our first night there as we were only able to get a rental car the next day. Absolutely nothing to complain about.

Christine and her team were fantastic, the kindness shown as the trip to Johannesburg was not for a happy reason was much appreciated. Attention to detail and cleanliness were noted and that the room and the view in real life were as on the photographs, was a first for me. And I travel a lot. Highly recommended and certainly a place to return to.

Great place to stay. Christine is very friendly and helpful with what ever we needed. The rooms are very well appointed and comfortable. I would certainly recommend this establishment to anyone wanting to stay in Johannesburg. Very close to Rosebank and Sandton plus a stones throw from the Cradle of Mankind!

It was wonderful to stay here for a couple days. Christine made me feel welcome and everything was really nicely done. Really confortable, clean, excellent breakfast and diner at night. It is really an advantage to have the solar panels there ! Wifi is excellent, even near the pool for late days of work. Do not hesitate to stay at Over the Moon, you will enjoy it.

If you like the best view of a city, the best host you can think about, a perfect breakfast, a wonderful and quiet house, you should come to Over The Moon Guesthouse. It was so far one of the nest locations in South Africa, even the others had been good as well. Thanks for the hearty welcome

Over the Moon is the best Guesthouse that I ever visit. The staff it's very efficient, and Christine, the manager, is the friendliest and kindest person that I' ve ever met !! The breakfast it's very healthy, and the bedrooms are so confortable as you can imagine. If you get up early, don't miss the sunset in your own balcony. And if you need an advise for yours city tours, you can ask to Chistine, she is ready to help !!
