Spent two lovely evenings at Acorns. The 'Apartment' was exactly the type of accommodation which my partner and I were looking for: private; spacious; comfortable; self-catering; and beautifully decorated. It is extremely well situated, and is a quick drive to most popular nodes such as Rosebank Mall, Melrose Arch, Sandton, and the Jhb C.B.D. It is surrounded by a variety of restaurants which are a close distance away, and Zoo Lake is also nearby. Taking a jog around the neighbourhood, you're overcome by the tranquility and it's beauty, wishing that life could remain that way :)! Although we unfortunately did not get to spend much time with Pam and Wiggie, they warmly welcomed us to their place, and were also of great assistance in advising us on where to go. I would highly recommend Acorns on 8th, not just for its great locality, but also for the sense of 'homeliness' which one gets from the very 1st moment that you enter the property.
