Attractive, secure, friendly guest house

Posted Aug 14, 2014
Pros: Welcoming, well presented and better than described on the web.
Location: Near randburg, sandton, honeydew and fairly easy drive from O R Tambo. Can access all of Joburg.
Tranquility near the city is what surprised me most. Accessible from the highway near Randburg. I stayed 2 nights in a great room. Very secure even for me as a solo traveller.

Beautiful Retreat Bed & Breakfast place

Posted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: Decor and ambiance and nice owner.
Location: 40 minute drive from the airport. Stefan can send a driver to pick you up. In a quiet affluent section of town. Near malls and nice restaurants.
Stefan the owner is very nice and helpful. There is a river with a small waterfall in the backyard... very nice place to relax and meditate and enjoy nature.

Just what was needed for an extended stay!

Posted Mar 30, 2014
Pros: The location is ideal for access to all of Johannesburg but amazingly peaceful and welcoming. Stefan went out of his way to make the stay comfortable.
Cons: I cannot think of a thing.
Location: Olivedale is a convenient location from which all of Johannesburg can be reached within a 30 minute drive without paying tolls on the motorway!
It took me a while to find this gem whilst searching for accommodation to carry me over between two business meetings in Johannesburg. Before this stay, I was in an expensive hotel in Sandton. Afterwards in an expensive hotel in Fourways. I have to say that my stay at Twin Waters was a joy -- especially when compared to both hotels. I had the Executive Suite for 17 days and have rarely been more comfortable or felt more at home in 43 years of travelling. A sumptuous room with a comfortable sofa, plenty of channels on the TV and a fully equipped kitchen for a fraction of the price of a hotel! The staff were not intrusive. Tea, coffee, fruit and rusks were laid on at any time of day (or night) and the flower arrangements are to die for! The property has a pool and a very large garden leading down to the Klein Jukskei. Sofas and benches are scattered around so that the outdoors can be enjoyed. I really felt as if I had a home to stay in all day or to come back to after meetings.

The staff was very approachable and accommodating. The garden room opens up nicely to the large beautiful backyard and garden, but the room is also close to the kitchen which can be noisy if people are using it (which was not too often). The place is pleasant but could use some minor updating. Good value.

Enjoy warm South African hospitality

Posted Jan 22, 2013
Firstly, the booking process itself was a nightmare and very stressful: you pay 50% deposit when booking through Expedia. Seconds later after receiving Expedia's booking confirmation, you will receive instructions from the owner paying the remainder 5 days prior to your arrival. However, he could not be reached as his telephone line was down. He promised to changed the booking procedure. Secondly, the owner went out of his way to make it a very comfortable stay. He really gives a warm South African welcome to his visitors. The garden is big and enjoyable. You can enjoy "braais" and the swimming pool. Kids can run around. The guesthouse is close to a major road and can get quite noisy. Also, the room I was in is next to the kitchen. If fellow-visitors are in the kitchen you will hear them and they will hear you. Privacy is not very good in the garden-room. Request another room.

A Real Find

Posted Nov 10, 2011
Very convenient to Laseria Airport about 20 min. Beautiful property on a stream with very artfully decorated suites. Nice neighborhood about 5 to 10 minutes from several malls and great restaurants. Owner was very welcoming. Wish we had been able to stay a few more nights.
