We absolutely adored the Ginnegaap Guesthouse in Johannesburg. We stayed there as a family in the one bedroom suite, arriving early one morning from USA/UK. Dead tired, we were picked up at the airport, given a room to relax in while ours was being made. We were warmly welcomed and offered a breakfast as we had a very hungry 3 and a 5 year old with us.
The house was beautifully appointed, with classic pieces throughout and nice touches all over. What is best about Ginnegaap is the location in Melville, just a few blocks away from 7th avenue with restaurants and shops. The guesthouse has a beautiful porch and a lovely courtyard with seating. The breakfast was great: all of us loved it. Although we did not use the pool, I must comment that it looks lovely: we normally swim no matter what the temperature, but this time we had so many other things to do in a short stay. We did a tour with Jacob, the son of the owner, who was knowledgeable and friendly. Corlien the owner/manager was very helpful and welcoming, as were the entire staff. We highly recommend Ginnegaap.
