Contact the owner: Newton (phone number hidden)
Stay with us, enjoy yourselves, feel comfortable and safe and come back to visit us again.
Newton's place is much better than what is on this website. His listing is very modern, clean, and perfect for being in close proximity to access Rosebank area.
Newton is a great host and very accommodating. We checked in late (actually quite late in the night), and he has appointed someone else to guide us while he was away.
We will stay in his place next time we are in Joburg if his place is available. Wish I had more time to speak to him.
This was my second stay at Newton's cottage and it was just as good. Newton is a great host and makes you feel very welcome but without in any way intruding on privacy. The cottage is in a great location, with easy access to Rosebank. It is spotlessly clean and gets cleaned every day. Wifi works well. Comfortable bed. Quiet. What more could you ask for?
Newton et Vincent nous ont accueillis avec une grande gentillesse. Discrets mais disponibles, ils savent faire en sorte que leurs hôtes se sentent chez eux tout en les entourant d’attention et de sollicitude. La description du cottage était claire, précise, complète mais la réalité a largement dépassé nos attentes. Le quartier est notoirement l’un des plus agréables et les plus dynamiques de Johannesbourg.
Very uncomplicated short term agreement. Thank you again for staying with you
Thank you for the wonderful and comfortable stay. Smooth and gentle communication. absolutely to be recommended. thank you for your hospitality.
The cottage is great and Newton and Lesley are great hosts. I thouroughly enjoyed my stay here and would recommend the location.
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 am a practicing Architect with offices at my residence specialising in domestic and commercial refurbishment projects.
