Hi Chantal, this was first stay anywhere in JHB and I do not want to stay anywhere else in JHB. You guys have a beautiful garden and a great variety of birdlife. You are secure and tranquil and I will recommend Ashdown house to everybody wanting to overnight in JHB.

I stayed in AshDown House for almost 2 weeks during a rescent business trip to Johannesburg and it was like a home far from home.
