Amanzi Guest House

Grading: NAA-SA,

"People who like books are the best kind of people. People who like books and create beautiful spaces, oases from the city - the kind of space that makes you feel like you are on a retreat - are better. Amanzi is an oasis and a perfect place to relax or work from. The light and space in the loft is amazing, the bed super comfy, and the wifi very fast. Pamela and Rob were helpful with recommendations and made a great breakfast (home baked bread, eggs, great mushrooms, yoghurts - the lot!). They even went above and beyond to jumpstart our car. We definitely would come back to stay, and recommend to others."
Trip Advisor Review October 2017

Offering comfort, at the best rate, in an Urban Oasis. Bed & Breakfast for Short / Long Stays with Self Catering options. Pet Friendly with Ample parking. Amanzi Guest House offers spacious accommodation with High Speed (50Mbs ) Fibre Optics Internet. Located in Craighall Park in Northern Johannesburg, close to Rosebank, Hyde Park, Illovo and Sandton.

Four contemporary, spacious Apartments and three garden Cottages, all with private entrances. Each cottage and apartment is individually decorated. Quality comforts at the best rates, in a well treed park-like neighbourhood, central to Rosebank, Sandton, Hyde Park, Melrose Arch and Johannesburg CBD . Amanzi Guest House is ideal for long stays, for business travellers, relocating families or medical patients. Your hosts, Pam and Rob, live on the property, and whether your stay is a night or a month, always go out of their way to ensure guests are comfortable and feel warmly welcomed. Thabang, Deli and Lena assist in ensuring your rooms are well cleaned, your laundry crisply ironed - service with an African smile! Relax in your own private garden, with tranquil water features, or lounge under the shade of Acer trees next to the large salt water swimming pool set in a lush semi-indigenous garden. Enjoy a sundowner on our new deck overlooking the pool or, if in work mode, take your laptop and work under the shade of the umbrella.

What makes Amanzi special? Guests tell us it's the space and comfort, others say it's our setting and facilities, the pool, the deck and the Weber barbecue. Everyone is surprised by the quietness of staying at Amanzi and how conveniently central Craighall Park is.

We are delighted that all our guests tell us how much they have enjoyed their stay!
