My stay here at Avondhu was perfect. It's is quiet and I immediately felt at home. The staff are very welcoming and make you feel very comfortable. There always seems to be a staff member in the house at all times just in case you need something. All in all my stay here was great.

The perfect home away from home, in a quiet and peaceful suburb that makes you feel far away from the every day hustle and bustle of the city even though you are in close proximity of Jhb Zoo, Rosebank, Sandton and surrounding areas. The lovely garden made it easy to unwind after a long workday and the service was excellent....

Second time around and we love this place. Worm welcome, beautiful and comfortable rooms, great breakfast – what else one need? Free wifi, free Nespresso, lovely pool and a smooth tennis court that is great for the 3 wheels scooter that my boys can’t stop riding.
