Staying true to their slogan "a little piece of heaven", this stunning guesthouse boasts a tranquil stay, on the outskirts of town. We really enjoyed our stay- and between the stunning rooms (with an amazing private outdoor shower, and indoor luxurious bath), welcoming boma...

A one night stay over in a clean, comfortable and refreshing guesthouse, close to a nearby function. A tranquil farm environment, so don't be surprised to hear the chickens clucking outside! Susan adds the personal touch right from the enquiry stage.

I stayed here for a week in May 2014. Was a pleasant stay. The rooms are nice and big, and very neat. Great beds and fittings in each room. The owner, Susan, is very friendly and the breakfast is great. Can recommend this place to anyone.

We found the rooms clean, luxurious and with all the minimum amenities one would expect, plus some more. Breakfast was good and at the time we requested. Really a...

The guesthouse epitomises a picturesque, quaint, serene escape where one simply forgets the busy life, does some introspection and gets lost in isolation. The owner, Susan is very hospitable and went out of her way to ensure that her guests were well catered for. One can't help but feel that the meals are prepared with love. I would definitely recommend...

What a beautifull peace of gem in the middle of Benoni. The staff and owners is amazing, and always makes you feel most welcomed. We booked in last minute, just before I was about to give birth to our daugter. I just had this gut feeling that she was going to be born the next day. So I phoned Susan...

Having stayed twice at African Silhouette Guest house in the last 6 months. I found it to be a peaceful tranquil hide away within easy reach of shopping centres, movies houses and restaurants.

We really like African Silhouette Guesthouse. The owner, Susan, is a super woman with a really kind attitude. She is there a lot, and is really attentive to everybody; the rooms are always serviced nicely, everything is really clean, and breakfast is always nice. For Mothers day we even had breakfast in bed after a long and cold night coming...
