The Cornerstone Lodge is not just another guesthouse, but indeed a home that offers you a truly tranquil and private stay. Our home is dedicated to my husband Fritz, who was a cornerstone in so many lives and in particular, mine. He was my mentor and taught me the wonder of giving. When people who are right for one another build dreams together, their shared joy is enormous and we both looked forward to the new horizons we were yet to share with our terrific guests from all over the world.

Cornerstone Lodge is situated in a very central area in the east of Pretoria and although we are close to all the main attractions in and around Pretoria, you can often hear the quiet of the night.

The original house was built in the early 1970’s and then purchased by us in 1997. At first it was just a dream to convert our home into a guesthouse but it soon became a reality. We were able to start with the project to change our home into a great guesthouse , where we could share the special atmosphere of the house with others. In 2002, we started renovations and have to date not yet done all we plan to do, but we did officially open the Guest Lodge in June 2003

All of our rooms & suites are individually decorated in different themes to ensure you feel completely at home. The apartments vary from approx. 40 sq.m. to 80 sq.m. and include a bedroom, en suite bathroom, kitchen and lounge. For longer stays, each unit is equipped with an automatic washing machine, iron & ironing board. Bedrooms are equipped with AC, Open View TV, fridge, microwave, hairdryer, clock radio, clean fresh linen & towels. Two of the private kitchens are proudly done in rosewood and the cottage is done in white Oslo. All guests have the use of the pools, tennis court, barbeque facility and the large lapa lounge. If you can enjoy your stay it will make our day!
