“I liked the fact that we had the family house to ourselfs and the privacy.The view to the park made it special”

- Esther

Centurion, South Africa

I had to stay in Joburg for more than two weeks and did not want the big hotel experience, so booked at Villa Schreiner. I had a very good time with a nice room, good bed and bathroom. The villa is located in a green and leafy neighboorhood but still close to Monte Casino and design quarter. Easy access to the highway is also important. Price quality was good and the friendly owner and his 2 beautiful dogs made it pleasant to go "home" at the end of my busy daysm

The people were really friendly and the guest house had a lapa and braai and outdoor dining. Loved our huge bed and warm bathroom tiles etc, especially in the winter. Location is fantastic. Near everything!

I was very impressed with the way my mother was made to feel welcome and how she was pampered by Michiel and his staff. She will most certainly return!

“A home away from home”

With four people coming and going, the Studio was perfect. Our own private balcony offered extended living space while the small kitchenette and fridge allowed us to self cater when we felt like it. Michiel and Mark offered both Braai and a traditional Voortrekker's dish cooked slowly over for several hours over the coals. Both meals were highlights of our holiday. Mark's personal guided tours are value packed. Michiel and Mark's generous hospitality are rare gems. Thanks guys!

Wonderful relaxing, friendly place. Nothing was too much trouble.My wife and I stayed at Villa Schreiner for 2 weeks whilst having medical treatment at a local clinic. We needed somewhere quiet and relaxing. Michiel (the owner) made us feel so welcome. He arranged an airport pick-up for us and showed us the best places to eat locally. Our room was large and comfortable and well equipped with a lovely view of the large garden with its pool and the gorgeous "summer house" which was a joy to sit in.

It was a gorgeous property that we would have loved to taken more advantage of if it had been warmer weather. The owner was very kind and helpful and accommodating. We appreciated having several rooms to spread out in with our family of 6. A great family or group accommodation.

Villa Schreiner and its owner Michiel epitomize what hospitality should be all about. From the moment I arrived to the day I left, I felt welcome and at home. To top this the excellent service, well appointed rooms and the huge garden with its chill areas, beautiful lawns and sparkling pool makes this the ideal home away from home for everyone from businessman to families. I can without hesitation recommend Villa Scheiner and categorically state that this was easily the best value for money I have experienced for a very long time.

Great start to An excellent holiday.
Michiel Schreiner is not only a former classmate of mine in our high school in Wassenaar, but also an excellent host and tour operator. He knows South Africa and prepared for us a customized trip for the period February-March 2009. The tips of Michiel Schreiner have been very welcome. The villa in Johannesburg / Gauteng is a beautiful house with a beautiful tropical garden.

A perfect and very safe start of our holiday!
After a long flight from London, we were very happy that Michael arranged for a safe transfer from the airport to Villa Schreiner. The villa is situated in a very nice and quiet residential suburb, and we felt immediately at home. The next day, Michael gave us a very good briefing about our journey, and the rental car was already at Villa Schreiner. We certainly can recommend Schreiner for your trip to South Africa.

We felt very much at home at Villa Schreiner!
Our host Michiel happened to celebrate his birthday on the day we arrived. We celebrated this with him while enjoying a glass of good South African wine. Michiel arranged for us a very short notice, a 2 day safari in the Entabeni game reserve, a mere 2.5 hour drive from Johannesburg, which we highly recommend. The shops and restaurants are a stone throw away, and the Bryanston Golf Club is also worth a visit. Thanks Michiel, we will be back for sure!

A Home Away from Home

I have lodged at Villa Schreiner multiple times over the past 9 months when visiting South Africa. I have stayed in all of the rooms at the Villa and discovered that they all have their own special character, comfort and provide a great place to relax away from the bustling city. My favorite place to hang is the Boma where Michiel has thoughtfully provided an honesty bar and relaxing furniture by the pool and garden. It has now become a informal tradition that Michiel prepares a Braai at least one night whenever I visit. The location is in a nice neighbourhood and close to a small park. oh -- one more thing -- great breakfast choices too.

“Good location if you fly to/from Lanseria”
The location of the guest house is good, especially when you arrive for Lanseria Airport. The owner Michiel is very friendly and helpful. If you want to stay for dinner it is no problem. I stayed in a very big room and everything you needed was there.

“Outstanding Value For Money!”
I really enjoyed staying at Villa Schreiner Guest House. Owner Michiel is very friendly and gives you a lot of tips, where to dine & wine, etc. The rooms are nice, overlooking the beautiful garden & pool. Very quiet area also. Mark, the tour guide can take you to all interesting places. He is a lot of fun, and has good knowledge of the country. I certainly can recommend this place to anyone.

The rooms were extremely comfortable and well equipped with tea/coffee facilities and TV's.
The breakfasts were plentiful with a huge selection of cold meats, cheeses, breads and then also available was the cooked breakfast. We also had a really nice BBQ and beers one evening which was really well prepared. We also had a really nice tour with Mark to Soweto which was really wicked. We jumped off the Orlando Cooling Towers! I would highly recommend you to stay here and I will definitely stay here again if I return to Joburg.

Dear Vanessa and George

We would like to say a big thank you for making our stay as comfortable and as lovely as you did.
We really felt at home and the highlight for the children was their Saturday afternoon at the pool. Breakfast was indulgent with the freshly made goodies.

We will certainly recommend Villa Schreiner to anyone.

Regards
Trudy and the rest of the family
