  • Newton, his family, and the property manager/caretaker Vincent were all extremely gracious hosts, present to answer questions and take of any problems but also very respectful of my privacy. The cottage was quiet, immaculate, spacious, well equipped, and serviced daily. An electric blanket was a nice touch for chilly nights, and I enjoyed sitting outside in the small, private patio space. I made good use of the desk and ample workspace, and the wifi was consistent. The parking space is under shade netting, which is nice both for shade and for those occasional highveldt hailstorms. I was very happy making this my home office for 3 weeks.

    A small note for cooks - the gas stovetop is wonderful, the fridge is small (fitting under the counter) and there is no conventional oven (there is a microwave).

    The location is very central and everything you need is nearby (movies, groceries, restaurants, cafes, gym), as well as having the Rosebank Gautrain station within a 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive. I would absolutely stay here again, and feel that Newton and his family became friends during the course of my visit. Azalea Cottage is a friendly, safe, convenient, and reliable oasis in Johannesburg.

  • I had a lovely time staying at Newton's Azalea Cottage. Beautiful neighborhood. Close to Zoo Lake where I was able to jog in the mornings. Many thanks to Newton's family and Vincent. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone visiting Joburg. I'd love to stay here again.

  • Great place, bigger than it looks, very comfortable, spotlessly clean and perfect location. Newton is a charming hosts and really puts himself out to ensure everything runs smoothly. Highly recommended.

  • Newton's cottage is beautiful! The place is very clean and the kitchen was well equipped. We stayed in Rosebank before and this place is cheaper than any guesthouse there plus you have a working kitchen! Rosebank is a very nice neighborhood. The mall (restaurants, grocery store, movies, shopping) and Gautrain station are about a 15 minute leisure walk and the roads are safe to walk around. We didn't get to meet Newton because he was on vacation but his house manager Vincent is so kind and helpful as well. You can use the train for the airport as well as to reach the hop on, hop off bus. I highly recommend Newton's guesthouse if you want to stay in a nice part of town and are on a budget.

  • Wonderful, spacious and tastefully decorated cottage, neat as a pin with almost everything you need. A home away from home. The house is cleaned and beds are made for you every day. Very hospitable and gracious hosts, we had a wonderful time and would definitely stay there again. Highly recommended
