About this home

The house is located in a beautiful quiet gated neighborhood & is just 15 minutes away from any point in Johannesburg, including the airport. The house and property is huge, giving you all the privacy & quiet you could want.

This beautiful home has just undergone a re-vamp. Wooden floors re-finished, entire house re-painted, brand new kitchen, bathrooms updated, etc. The rooms are huge, use it as a work space (pop-up showroom, etc) or to just escape into a corner and enjoy the quiet. You will wake to the singing of the birds, we have about 14 species visiting everyday. The yard is great for kids to run around in, have a dip in the pool & lunch outdoors in the thatched lapa. Whatever you are looking for, you will probably find it here.

Our domestic helper will clean the house every day as well as wash & iron on request.

There is an office with wifi.

The kitchen is fully equipped. Sheets are cotton or bamboo for a good nights sleep. The veg patch always has something ready to be picked, either veg or herbs, you are welcome to pick from it.

The house is in a secure location & as with most JHB houses, it's surrounded by high walls. We also have security cameras around the outside.

There is a garage for your car.

It's home away from home.

    Great place to stay in Johannesburg

    What a wonderful place to stay. Very roomy, large property and the owner is fantastic. Mini, the owner, lives downstairs and is very helpful in giving recommendations, providing help in many ways and makes you feel right at home. A wonderful, home away from home that I would highly recommend.
