Betty's Bay, South Africa
Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Great place to stay if you work in Parkhurst/ Linden area. Woolies and P&P walking distance as well as restaurants and gym. I stayed in a spacious 1 bed flat with a small kitchen. Peaceful environment. Love the dogs and cats on the property. Wifi works mostly well - really the only aspect that could be improved.

We enjoyed our stay. Friendly and professional service. Environment peaceful and private. Room was warm, welcoming and felt like home. Will definitely go back. Location is ideal, with shopping centre that's walking distance.

I was in Johannesburg for business and needed a clean, safe and functional space with seamless internet connectivity. I'm glad to have found Jamie's place as I need not search for alternative accommodation next time; this will be my go-to place whenever I travel to Johannesburg for business or otherwise. Jamie's place is exactly as it is depicted on the...

I could live here permanently! This spacious and excellently appointed self catering apartment really cannot be faulted. We spent 5 wonderful days in this beautiful, peaceful location. The shopping mall is so close you don't even need to drive. Jamie, the owner, is friendly and very helpful. A wonderful Johannesburg find!

A sufficient accommodation I suppose. Stayed 3 nights in Romeo apartment 6. Noise from the downstairs unit carried into the unit late into the nights, probably until the occupants downstairs retired to bed. Towels were removed from the laundry basket and simply re-hung onto the towel rack in the 4 days I was there, without a change of thereof. Hair...

I have had the pleasure to spend a few nights at Moonflower over the last few years. Each experience has been great. The friendly service coupled with a home-from-home feeling and the quiet peaceful nights with convenient position guarantee that I will be back.

Not only is this place fantastic in terms of the facilities, but the owner Jamie and his partner Sylvia make this place that much more memorable and special. They are both so incredibly kind and welcoming and answered any questions we had as well as helping out with lost baggage from the flight over. Located in a safe neighborhood with...

Stayed at the guesthouse for 2 nights and everything was good. The owner and host is very friendly and helpful, as are the housekeeping ladies working there. The property looks good and the accommodation was also way more spacious then initially expected! It offers everything needed for a self-catering stay! Very much enjoyed it

Great place to stay but please dont let the pool pump start up so early....Perfect if you want to self cater but not ideal if you want bed and breakfast. Very homely and well kitted out and also good if you have your own transport

Thanks for your kind review and duly noted as we have set the waterfall to start a bit later in the morning :-). Transport is always a challenge in Johannesburg although UBER is really convenient and generally not more then 3 min away. The Victory Park shopping center is a walk-able 200m away for the energetic and has a Mugg...
