About Grendon House

Set on an acre of beautiful gardens, in a prestigious northern suburb of Johannesburg, you awake to the sounds of birds although only 5kms from the business centre of Sandton City.

Spacious entertainment areas decorated in a mix of antiques and artefacts collected by the owners make this a place to relax and experience the hospitality of South Africa. Persian rugs on wooden parquet flooring together with fireplaces in the reception rooms and library add to the charm.


All bedrooms overlook the tranquil gardens and large pool and are spacious and individually decorated. Beautiful linen and luxury bathroom amenities, biscuits and fruit in the rooms and turn-down service in the evenings indicate the attention to detail and service at Grendon House.

Room 1 has a twin or king extra length bed and fireplace and opens onto the garden with a private patio. It has an en-suite shower. Both Room 2 and room 3 are upstairs and have solid wooden floors and large windows overlooking the garden. Room 2 has twin beds and private shower with underfloor heating.

My husband and I recently stayed at Grendon after spending some time on safari. I was very impressed by not only the home but the location. It is only a few blocks from some amazing shopping and restaurants. The owners were wonderful in suggesting many places to visit and most importantly for my husband and I, to eat. The living room is incredible with a huge fireplace that was lit at night and relaxing in front of it gave us the opportunity to talk over the days events and relax. We had such an incredible time here and we only wish we could have been able to stay a bit longer. I highly recommend this guest house and look forward to staying here again soon. Thank you!

My son and I stumbled upon The Grendon House during our trip to S. Africa for the 2010 World Cup. His words exactly, "we have found the friggin Martha Stewart of S. Africa"....the attention to detail concerning the guests comfort and well being were unlike anything we have ever experienced. When was the last time you turned back your covers and found a fuzzy warm hot water bottle awaiting you? A beautiful, safe oasis in a manicured, secured neighborhood, our hosts seem to anticipate our every need, arranged safe and prompt transfers, and even accompanied us on a very special shopping expedition to a fabulous newly renovated area we would have never found on our own (rivaled the shops of New York, tres chic!). I cannot say enough about how special the Grendon House is. Go!
