We stayed here for two nights in November and Helen very kindly upgraded us to stay in essentially a whole house for just two people. The place was clean, comfortable and it was like staying in someone's house but with privacy to do as we pleased. I wish we could have stayed longer to make use of the pool. The...

I stayed here for a month, and was almost sad to leave it behind! I was in the large cottage, which was perfect for what I needed, and really well looked after. The owners and staff are all great. The location is ideal - close to lots of great spots to eat, and easy to get on the highway.

Remote Corner is an absolute little gem. It ticked all the boxes, perfect location for us, comfortable, beautifully appointed room and wonderful welcoming hosts with delicious hot breakfasts, perfect on a very cold Johannesburg weekend. We will certainly be returning, hopefully in Spring to enjoy the beautiful garden.

I stayed in the absolutely wonderful, chic room called 'The Granary' at this lovely bed and breakfast. I found the hosts warm and welcoming; and the venue absolutely has the comforting feeling of a home away from home. I would absolutely recommend this venue for it's clean, beautiful rooms; it's idyllic gardens and its fantastic location.

I highly recommend Remote Corner in Parkview. If I am lucky enough to get a reservation it's always my first choice. It has a beautiful garden setting, friendly staff, private parking and entrances and the rooms are always clean. It is excellent value!

We rented the three bedroom, two bathroom house on this Parkview property for a week in April 2015. It was terrific: clean, comfortable, safe, and convenient. The kitchen is well equipped. The garden is peaceful and bucolic. The hosts are pleasant, helpful, and friendly. There is a decent, safe, moderately well equipped, park nearby if you have young children. Parkview...
