Situated in 'The Parks' of Johannesburg the Guest House is in a central yet very peaceful area of Johannesburg and within easy access to the main motorway. Parkview is part of the Greater Rosebank Region and our Guest House is just around the corner from Johannesburg Zoo, the famous Orient Express Westcliff Hotel and Parkview Golf Course. The streets are lined with Jacaranda Trees and the bird life is exceptional. At the Zoo Guest House offers executive en-suite rooms in the Main House as well as self-contained units in the Garden. Secure parking is available on the Guest House grounds.

"All rooms are great!"
"We had the Yellow room."
"Discussing your room needs with Giselle would take care of any concerns. Rooms available in the main house and separate rooms overlooking the pool with mini kitchen areas available."
"We stayed in the two rooms off the breakfast room. Lovely, comfortable and inviting. Heated bathroom floor was a nice touch in the cool winter nights."
"Rooms also available in the main house"
