Acorns on 8th
Self-Catering 4 Star Accommodation near Sandton and Rosebank

The Indigenous Garden


Acorns on 8th Self-Catering Accommodation in Johannesburg, a member of the Johannesburg-guesthouses portfolio, offers accommodation based on the requirements for star graded self catering accommodation, and is ideally situated in the Johannesburg northern suburbs, to offer an alternate stay for both Sandton accommodation as well as Rosebank accommodation.


The Acorns on 8th indigenous garden, is a result of a decision made years ago to plant indigenous, borne out of both a growing interest in South Africa's huge array of native plants as well as being accutely aware of the need to cut down on water use.

We're certainly no horticulturalists, and the rambling, almost unkempt, indigenous garden has been developed over years of not knowing what to do!

If plants survived, they were kept.
If they died, el experimento continuó!

We're a big believer in nature providing calm, and the one goal we had when creating what we have today, was a peaceful refuge.

In our effort to work with nature, we sanitise the pool with salt, top the pool up with rain water off the roof, clear the streets of autumn leaves to use as mulch in the garden, recycle household waste, use energy saving bulbs inside and out and use the sun to heat our hot water.
