I stayed a few nights at Amanzi guesthouse while in Johannesburg for work and was so pleasantly surprised by the hospitality and light and clean accommodations. I found the entire staff to be warm and welcoming from the time I arrived until the time I left for the airport. My apartment was quiet and the grounds were pristine. I felt very comfortable and relaxed during my entire stay and was able to accomplish a lot of work while also feeling like I was truly on vacation from a hectic travel schedule. Thank you for a terrific first experience in South Africa! I will definitely be back!

Because of business reasons I stayed in the Amanzi for six months.
The location of the Guest Gouse is just perfect. Restaurants, malls, a gym and a beautiful park is nearby.
The Amanzi is an idyllic place with a variety of different birds and plants and a lot of little hidden characteristics.
The personnel is outstanding friendly and focused to make sure that the guests are happy with everything.
I never had such lovely hosts like Pam and Rob. During my entire stay I didn’t feel like a stranger at all but like a guest living in a lovely environment that became a second home.
Thank you all for making my time in Joburg so pleasant and enjoyable!

We - a family with two small children - stayed in one of the cottages. The cottage was of a very high standard. The entire premise feels secluded from the buzz of Joburg. For any request, a solution was found to make our stay as esay and enjoyable as possible.

As expats returning to South Africa we spent a month at Amanzi guesthouse while we searched for permanent accommodation and we could not have stayed at a more comfortable and relaxing place during the transition! The accommodation is tastefully modern and extremely comfortable with a beautiful tree filled garden, swimming pool and comfortable deck. The word Amanzi means water in Zulu and is very appropriate for this guesthouse with the tranquil sound of running water ever present. The owners, Rob and Pam, are extremely friendly and helpful and will make you feel as though you’re staying in your own house. I can’t recommend this place enough whether it be for a week, month or a year!

Finally back at Amanzi Guest House after a 5 year gap. While I was always impressed with the place (see previous review) it only got better. Just to mention 2 things: more cute dogs and a sundeck, where the WiFi coverage is good enough to put in a days work.
And not to forget: what a pleasant suburb to be in (Craighall Park) is. Perfectly safe with a friendly neighbourhood restaurant (Cnr Cafe) and a super market (Spar) at walking distance. Easy jog to the nearby park, featuring open grassland with many birds to see. Great for running, cycling and walking the dogs.

Dear FokkoG
Thank you for your great review on Amanzi once again! So happy that you thought we had made improvements, and i cant help agreeing with you about our sundeck and the neighbourhood :) We love our sundeck, and are delighted when guests also use it - either to work, have a glass of wine, read a book... just hang out. Delta Park also often gets used by our guests who enjoy a run or walk. Thank you also for mentioning our convenient shops and restaurants within walking distance.
We hope you will be back again, and hopefully with your family.
Best wishes from all of us at Amanzi.
Pam, Rob, and the team
