About Acorns on 8th

We're naturally biased, but honestly believe our accommodation is something special - so special in fact, that our apartment, with its peaceful, modern interior, was used as the location for a recent TV commercial for MTN - one of South Africa's major cellular network providers.

Come and spend a night with us, or let us provide you a long-term stay in one of our two comfortable and stylishly furnished self-contained units, each with their own private entrances. We're situated in a secure and relaxed environment, in the tree-lined and sought after up-market suburb of Parktown North - one of the "Parks" in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg.


The Garden Cottage (sleeps 2):
The garden cottage, which caters for 2 persons sharing, opens out onto an attractive and tranquil indigenous garden with a large pool. The heavily curtained private bedroom has an old teak double-bed, and comfortable wingback lounging chairs, a dining table with chairs and under floor heating, a TV with M-Net and satellite television, a Telkom landline with direct international dialling and a large amount of built-in cupboard space for clothes, complete your comfort.

The Apartment (sleeps 3):
The apartment, which can cater for a small family or group, opens out onto a spacious first floor balcony. The stylish bedroom has a queen-sized bed, under floor heating and ample cupboard space. The richly curtained large lounge has a sleeper couch for the additional guest, a TV with M-Net and selected satellite television channels and a Telkom landline with direct international dialling. A separate dining area provides a dining table and chairs. To sum it up in one word: space.


Both the cottage and the apartment each have a full, modern kitchen, which includes a microwave, a large fridge and a 4-plate stove with oven. Both are fully equipped with all the necessary kitchen utensils, and the basic everyday essentials, such as sugar, tea, and coffee, are supplied.

The cottage and the apartment both have a modern, en-suite, stylishly fitted bathroom, with under floor heating and heated towel rails. The cottage has only a shower, whereas the apartment has both a shower and a bath. The basic bathing necessities are provided in both units.


Parking is on-site and behind a remote controlled gate.
A laundry and ironing service is available at an additional cost.
We deal with, and can arrange tours and transfers with various Government registered tour guides, and we personally have loads of information that we'd be happy to share.
