Zietsies
Zietsies is situated on the highest "koppie" in Johannesburg - some people say second highest, but we believe otherwise - With a 180 degree view to the north, east and west.

We also believe that our Guest House is completely unique and that you will not find anything like it anywhere else in Joburg.

Our dining room has been built with glass and steel, giving it the feel of a conservatory in the sky with a view only surpassed by the quality of food we serve.

All our rates include breakfast and we do a three course dinner on request.

Please note that there are no televisions in our rooms, but there is a big screen television with all available channels in the lounge.

An extensive and diverse library is at your disposal and why watch television if you can relax with a book on our deck with Joburg’s seven million trees at your feet.

Or better still, with a glass of wine with Joburg’s twinkling lights all around you.

Accommodation at Zietsies:
The rooms in our guest house have all been decorated by the owner herself and each one has a character of its own.

The best quality linen, feather and down duvets, coffee and tea tray, fresh fruit, dressing gowns and a welcoming carafe of sherry in the rooms ensure the comfort and enjoyment of your stay with us.

Bedroom 1 Kooi:
My imagination took over and two of them are now the proud headboard in this bedroom. A mirror or two broke during the moving process and the imagination turned them into mosaics on all the tables.

The high pointed ceiling, a cross and beautiful crystal wall lights in this bathroom, makes it feel as if you are bathing in a little church.

Bedroom 2 Kooier:
My imagination ran away with me in this suite. An old mattress decorated with plastic flowers and purple fairy-lights, behind perspex, was transformed into a headboard for the bed.

While I was indulging in kitch I thought I might as well add a stuffed tiger to finish the picture.

Beautiful Art Decor furniture pieces and light fittings balance everything out.

I managed to outdo myself with this bathroom. A Victorian slipper bath with one of the best views you can find in Johannesburg.

Bedroom 3 Kooiste:
The cherry on the cake, or rather in the roof. An en-suite loft room with its own little lounge. I couldn`t dream up a more beautiful room.

Bedroom 4 Boudoir:
A fantasy bedroom straight from ‘Moulin Rouge’ with a superior quality queen size bed and open plan bathroom with a view of Johannesburg to the east and north. The room has an additional entrance and direct access to our herb garden.

The Cottage
The cottage is separate from the main house and can be turned into a self-catering unit. The lounge/study has a wood burning stove for cosy winter evenings.

The bedroom has a superior quality king size bed or twin beds and separate bathroom with walk-in cupboard.

The cottage is the proud bearer of original canvasses by South African artists and is only available for a stay of two weeks and longer.

    Thank you Zietsies, we had a wonderful and welcoming stay. The room was quaint and interesting and we had a great view of the city from our bedroom. Will go back anytime!
