High ceilings and a South African farm-house appeal ensures you won't forget this peaceful home in a hurry! The area is quiet and you really forget you're in Jozi here! I would love to host you and make your stay in Jozi one to remember fondly!
The house lends itself to lazy-lounging and thoughtful reading by the pool. It is perfect for business people who need quiet space to work with easy access to Randburg business district or for travllers who don't like to feel like they're in the thick of the city (even though they are).
This airy home is only 700m from Cresta Mall, (one of the prime shopping destinations around) and 20min from the Rosebank and Sandton Gautrain stations (to O.R. Tambo International Airport).
The house is spacious and the kitchen comes with all the possible mod-cons a discerning traveller could want. This is a space you will soon learn to adore, just like I have.
There is a live-in domestic worker who services the property 3 days a week. She is simply precious, even her name is Precious! Laundry can be washed and ironed (within reason).
Although this is a private room listing. Guests will be able to access to 80% of the house: Lounge, Dining-Room, Kitchen, Bedrooms, Pool and Garden.
Laundry-room access by request only.
Interaction with guests
Happy to advise guests on attractions, sights, food, transport or to just chat. I enjoy meeting interesting people who love travel as much as I do. I am happy to assist with sight-seeing arrangements, if necessary.
Happy to assist with transfers to and from the Gautrain Station, Rosebank. For all other trips I suggest Uber, who service the area very reliably with fast response.
