Newton was a fantastic host, he communicated well and was very welcoming. The place itself was ideally located, close to rosebank mall and a perfect jumping spot for the entire city. The place is large, well equipped, clean and quiet. The pictures don't do it justice, as it was a incredible find.

The cottage was perfect for our needs and even better than how its described - super well maintained, clean, and well setup with amenities. Additionally Newton was an amazing host - inviting us into his home for lunch/tea, being very responsive to any thing we needed, and more. The location is also outstanding - easy to walk to Rosebank mall or Uber to Sandton. Would happily stay here again.

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.

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.
