Awesome position and exceptional rooming
Travelled up to visit my lady who had taken a long term rental for work purposes. Cannot even begin to tell you how friendly and welcome we were made to feel. The rooms were very well laid out and all the necessary gadgets were available, even a Bodum! So well situated all the amenities and after hours entertainment were with mere meters of the establishment. would not hesitate to send friends and colleagues to stay.

Very homy!
The cottage was nice & big equipped with own kitchen, living room en suite with a lazy comfy bed, t&b & a queen-sized bedroom with a spacious built-in cabinets a sliding door that leads to a balcony patio of your own bedroom. Very peaceful & relaxing seems like we're sleeping in our own bedroom at home. Very homy indeed! From our cottage is overlooking to a well maintained swimming pool which is surrounded by the rest of the cottages. Owners were so friendly & really looked after to their guests needs. Well secured area, located in the a well secured community & an easy 5mins. walk to the nearest Pick & Pay grocery.

Wonderful Stay! Wonderful Owner!
I can't believe it has taken me this long to write a review about our stay at the Moon Flower. We had just finished a 3 week cape town to Vic Falls Safari when we headed down to Johannesburg for a 3 day stay prior to our flight home. The accommodations were great. A very peaceful and restful stop. Now the things that were special! You can walk from Jamie's to a little mall a few blocks away and get all your basic items. Jamie also sent us to the best restaurants and night spots around. Just a fantastic visit, and as others have mentioned they create a very cordial and relaxed atmosphere. If I ever return to SA this is a place I will want to stay again!

Beautiful oasis in Jo'Burg
Stayed at Moonflower Cottages for one week during World Cup. Jamie was an outstanding host during our stay. Extremely welcoming, accomodating and helpful in navigating the city. The cottages are very well maintained and secure, located in a nice part of Jo'Burg. I highly endorse the property and the owner. We had a fabulous experience. The place is a gem. We stayed in the apartment above the garage.

Relaxing Haven
Stayed at the Moonflower Cottages during a trip to the World Cup in South africa for 6 days. Liked it so much that I returned for a second visit later on. Had a room in a cottage separate from the main house - very spacious with modern on -suite bathroom and some kitchen facilities. Jamie the owner is very friendly and helpful and spent quite a while printing of maps and tourist information for me from the internet. Strongly recoomend a visit to the Gold Reef theme park where you can go 700m underground in an old gold mine.

A home from home
Jamie was a fantastic host, it felt more like I was staying with a friend than renting a unit. We have kept in touch since I got back and I would not hesitate in recommending Moonflower for a second. He made a fantastic trip even better
