We really enjoyed to be at avondhu guest house, the rooms are spacious, clean and the wifi coverage too good. The location of the guest house is strategic in the sense that it is accessible, a few kilometres to Sandton and Johannesburg zoo. The place is simple packed with fun.

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.
