Amanzi is our automatic choice if we are heading for Jo'burg. Jacaranda Cottage proved the perfect base. It is comfortable (including the bed) and well equipped. Water was always piping hot. And breakfast was enough to negate the need for lunch. Our hosts looked after us perfectly. Always helpful, but never intrusive. The garden includes a decorative stream and is inhabited by hadida ibis, and the house lies in a leafy suburban area. We walked to a nearby café and park and felt quite safe doing so. Wifi was fast and available throughout. Highly recommended. We are greatly disappointed when it has been full and we have not been able to secure a room.

Room Tip: All rooms seem quiet and well equipped. Cottages give some extra space at little extra cost.

Dear 1234GG
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We so appreciate it and hope that we will always be able to accommodate you when you head for Joburg.
Thank you for your positive comments about comfort- including the bed. We put great emphasis on comfort, and a good sleep in a quality bed with crisp linen is high on our list.
Glad you enjoyed the neighbourhood, and the park.
Look forward to your nest visit.
Best wishes from all of us at Amanzi!

We stayed at the Amanzi Guesthose for nearly 2 months after relocating from Switzerland and before settling in to our own home. It was the best choice ever – the place is very child friendly (there are dogs, a pool and lots of open spaces outside), the area is safe, a beautiful park is in walking distance and most important of all - Pam, Rob, Deli, Tabbang and Leana are just amazing. It felt like a family to us and they were very helpful and kind. We would recommend staying there to anyone!

Dear Beahauselmann

How much we enjoyed having your family stay with us! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Amanzi. It was such fun to see your children "helping" the Gardiner sweep, and your son assisting with "pruning" and cutting dead leaves! We loved hosting you, and miss you all!
Wishing you all the best in your new home

The Amanzi team

I chose Amanzi as a landing spot for my first 3 weeks in Johannesburg, as I had just relocated to RSA for work. It was a great alternative to staying at a hotel as it offered similar quality of service and independence, but with a more personal feel when it comes to decor and amenities. The studio is kept clean and fully equipped, and the staff are friendly and always available to help. True to form, Pam, Rob, Leanne and Ryan are lovely attentive hosts and fun neighbors!

Dear Cyyl
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about your stay at Amanzi - we are delighted you landed at Amanzi for the first three weeks of your relocation to South Africa! Thank you for your lovely comments and that you found Amanzi more personal than a hotel, but offering similar quality and services. We pride ourselves on attending to our guests needs and happy you felt well looked after.
Sincerely from the Amanzi team

Amanzi is my home away from home in Jo'burg. A beautiful, quiet garden oasis in a pretty suburban area, the rooms/apartments are spacious, well-appointed, and very well cared for. Rob and Pam, owners of Amanzi, are warm, friendly, gracious hosts, attentive to and very respectful of their guests. Feels like family there. The daily breakfast is fantastic - the staff cooks to order, along with cereals, fruit, fresh coffee and home-made bread - served in a solarium dining room overlooking the front garden. There is a grocery, wine shop and several good cafes/restaurants within a short walk. The international employees of our company always stay at Amanzi when in Jo'burg. Private, safe and inviting. Highly recommended!

My 3rd trip here over the last few years, this time pleasure not for business. I have never stayed anywhere that feels so much like home from home. Pam, Rob and the staff are wonderful. The rooms are very good, breakfast is lovely and always freshly cooked. It's so peaceful and quiet, surrounded by trees it feels like you are in the country yet still very convenient for the city. Would thoroughly recommend.
