Reviewed 19 November 2012

Stayed here for one night in September returning from a week's travel in Botswana. A hospitable Mandy (and Sebastian) kept us entertained during a power cut. The spirit of bonhomie served us well and we learnt a lot about what drives factions of the population in this country. Made me realise one can never know this country or the people in it until you have talked a little politics. An illuminating experience, which reinforced the vagaries of human nature. We placed it firmly in a separate box from our trip of a lifetime safari.

Stayed: September 2012, travelled with friends

Dear JL, This is a very belated "Thank You" to your review on Trip Advisor. We are the owners of Avoca Lodge and have returned back to South Africa to continue running the BnB. We trust that your "Once in a Lifetime Safari' still lingers often in the memory bank. It certainly is a spectacular country. We hope to welcome you back one day.
Regards
Michelle

The first time we stayed at Avoca Lodge we decided to stay longer next time. This time we have made the same decision. Mandy and Sebastian and the most friendly hosts! Thanks for the best time so far in Johannesburg, Mandy! See you next time for another 'double the days' stay. Thanks Steve for an amazing 'Johannesburg in a Nutshell' visit to Apartheid Museum, Soweto and then to the cultural adventure at Lesedi.

Thank you so much for your kind words on Avoca Lodge. Sadly Mandy & Sebastian are no longer with us since we have returned back to RSA from Australia. Mandy did such an excellent job at looking after all who come to stay at Avoca Lodge. Take care.
Regards
Michelle

Room Tip: Sommige kamers moeten de sanitaire faciliteiten delen. Hou hier rekening mee bij het boeken!
