Sonja was an absolutely fabulous host. I have never had anyone welcome us so warmly into their home. The rooms we stayed in (Protea and Thornybush) were spacious, bright and clean. We would've loved to stay longer, but our flight home was the next day so the stay was very short. Raffy the dog was very friendly too, and came to say hello every once in a while.
The only thing I'd say wasn't great was the smell of smoke in the house, as the hosts do smoke in the bar area. The rooms and semi-private area upstairs themselves however were not affected by the smoke smell at all, so that was no problem.
I would definitely recommend Jacaranda house and it's lovely hosts for your stay in Johannesburg; I will be coming back for my next visit for sure!
We had a fantastic time staying with Sonja and John. Not only do they have a sumptuous home, they also know how to make people feel welcome. Our room, with the attached bathroom, were spacious and lovely decorated. They have an awesome built-in bar and an amazing outdoor area (with pool table and view of the garden). Their breakfast is also top notch! We truly enjoyed getting to know John and Sonja, and couldn't think of any better place to stay. We will be back! :)
Thank you for making our stay so special!!!
Sonja und John sind großartige Gastgeber - vom ersten Augenblick an fühlt man sich als Gast willkommen und gut behütet. Das Haus liegt in einer excellenten, sicheren Wohngegend. Es ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, die Zimmer sind genauso wie die Bäder in einem sehr ansprechenden, überaus gepflegtem Zustand. Sonja ist rund um die Uhr ansprechbar und kann einem sichere Tipps für JBG geben. Das Frühstück auf der Terrasse wird uns unvergesslich bleiben - genauso wie das Fauzlenzen am Pool .
Wir kommen ganz sicher wieder!
Une maison magnifique et des hôtes charmants. Sonia est une maitresse de maison qui sait recevoir, on se sent comme à la (website hidden) chambre est spacieuse et la salle de bain fonctionnelle. Et d'une propreté irréprochable.
Un endroit formidable pour séjourner à Johannesburg !!!!
Sonja's B&B was definitely our best Airbnb experience in Joburg. The room was spacious and clean with a comfortable bed and a nice view to the garden. Exquisite breakfast. Common areas are also very nice with an intimate ambiance. I liked that Sonja and her partner also stayed around, so it is not impersonal like many other B&B's.
The area is not the most vibrant in town, but pleasant and safe. Walking distance (1-2 km) to Norwood and Melrose Arch. If we stayed for longer we would probably need a car!
Sonja was extremely communicative and always available in scheduling my visit to Johannesburg for the first time. She and
John were able to provide me with a very comfortable base with
which to see the city and the location is only a short walk from
the attractive area of Melrose Arch with countless restaurants
on offer. An idyllic location only a short ride from the Sandton
stop on the new rail line originating from the airport. Just
booked another stay for my return leg to Jozi. Mike
Absolutely the best B&B in the city! Sonja was such a lovely host, she has been very helpful and most kind to us. It was a wonderful way to see the city, and her house is located in a great northern suburb. I'm definitely going back.
Response from Sonja:

Sonja is a wonderful host - and the place is just stunning.
