My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. The neighbourhood is safe with all amenities nearby. It's perfect for mid to long term stay, where you have the option to cook for yourself or go out. Near Grant avenue which is very vibrant with beautiful restaurants. Pippa and Ian were always very helpful and we could reach them at any time. We also had parking, our own access to the garden flat, WiFi and they did out laundry! Will definitely be back here!

The apartment and its garden are a sanctuary of peace, good taste, tranquility and shelter. The apartment was once part of the owners own family establishment and the quality and standard of its furbishment shape up to the highest expectations. The only outstanding matters are technical - a better lock on the outside security gate, and a higher quality of signal for wi fi in the apartment.

Response from Pippa:
Thank you John, I will immediately see to the lock on the outside security gate and ,like you, am very disappointed in the Wi-Fi signal. It is new and meant to be top of the range. Will look into that too, Thank you for your super feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back here one day.

Fun loving, Amiable, passionate gardener, cook and reader, grandmother of 6, charity worker. This apartment is really close to some wonderful restaurants and Malls. Thava, known throughout South Africa is a fabulous restaurant serving many South Indian dishes which is unusual in South Africa.
Satyagraha House , where Mahatma Ghandi lived and worked is within a kilometer and there are 45 different ethnic restaurants and bars in Norwood, a 5 minute walk from this apartment. The area is safe and there is a large park at the bottom of Orange Road. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need, stove, microwave,toaster, Kettle and fridge. The Queen size bed is new and extremely comfortable. The garden is full of birds, I know that you will be happy here. We are within walking distance of various synagogues and churches.
