About Forest Town Guest Cottages

Ideal for comfortable quick stopovers or longer stays. Guests have said: “… the best kept secret in town”!

The Forest Town Guest Cottages are let on a daily, weekly or monthly basis as self-catering (with breakfast and meals optional) to suit the business traveller, families and tourists. The large cottages are completely separate and private. The cottages have a home-from-home cosy atmosphere. They overlook an expansive picturesque garden, and are an ideal temporary housing solution for corporate relocations.

Nestled in the densely treed “Parks” suburb of Forest Town, we are close to the business hubs of Johannesburg with easy access to main transport routes, convenient shopping, sidewalk restaurants, golf courses, major sports stadia and other recreational venues.

Set in a mature garden, the private cottages provide a quiet get-away. Afternoon teas can be enjoyed under tall trees. The garden boasts extensive rolling lawns and a large pool. Swimming towels are made available.


Each delightful 2-bedroom cottage is tastefully furnished, has a full bathroom (i.e. bath and shower), a comfortable lounge and a fully equipped kitchen that makes for easy self-catering. All linen and towels are supplied. There is ample secure parking behind automated gates.
