Acorns on 8th

Grading: NAA-SA, TGCSA

We offer wonderful self-catering accommodation in the sought after and up-market suburb of Parktown North, with its beautiful tree-lined streets, local shops and burgeoning pavement cafés.

The accommodation on offer is either a garden unit, a breakway unit or an apartment.

The garden unit caters for 2 persons sharing and opens out onto an attractive and rambling indigenous garden with a large pool. It is furnished with a king size bed which can also be split into two single beds, comfortable wingback lounging chairs and a dining table with chairs. The en-suite bathroom has a shower only.

The apartment can cater for a small family or group and opens out onto a spacious first floor balcony. It is furnished with a queen-sized bed and a sleeper couch. A separate dining area has a dining table and chairs. The full en-suite bathroom has a bath and a shower.

Both units have full kitchens, fitted with a microwave, a large fridge and a 4-plate stove with oven. All the necessary kitchen utensils are provided as well as the basic everyday essentials - such as tea, Rooibos, coffee, sugar, creamer and milk - are supplied.

The units have full DSTV and Wi-Fi internet.

The rambling indigenous garden is accessible to both the cottage - which opens onto it, and the apartment. Established in April 2004, Acorns on 8th has been a great success and is constantly in demand. Parktown North and the surrounding suburbs are known for their numerous restaurants and pavement cafés.

Referrals have regularly been received from a top 5-star Johannesburg Hotel for self-catering accommodation, bookings have been received from a Middle Eastern Prince and the apartment has been used as a location for a MTN (South African mobile phone operator) TV commercial.

Acorns on 8th has also been the haven for a World Cup winning South African sportsman as well as being a home-away-from-home for the cream of the South African legal system as well as members of the diplomatic corps.

Despite these heights, it's good to know that the relaxed and familiar environment has ensured that bookings have also been taken, aplenty, from people like you and me!

Parking is on-site and is behind a remote controlled gate.
