Welcome to your beautiful modern shared boutique home, an architectural gem that is a safe, peaceful and inspiring space for creatives. We offer 2 private suites, with private and shared spaces like living areas, bar and sparkling pool.

The Bamboo Suite is the biggest and has a king size bamboo bed, Jacuzzi, work area and lounge overlooking your own outside area with a fish pond. A lovely space to work or relax.

The space

It’s luxurious, spacious, very comfortable, calming, beautifully decorated and has everything you need.

If you want to immerse yourself in a safe, creative, comfortable and peaceful environment, with the fastest fiber Internet connection in Jozi, you have found the right place! We know that you will find this slice of paradise as original, inspiring and relaxing as we do, only minutes away from the centre of Jozi.

The house is on a friendly and safe compound with a beautiful pool, in the real Melville, where you have the historic UNESCO Melville Koppies on your doorstep to wonder and view Jozi's famed skyline. It offers a perfect space to chill and enjoy a lock up and go life style, while being only a few minutes walk from the famous, funky 7th Street. Two additional Airbnb Apartments are on the property. They are completely separate from you, unless of course you want to engage around the pool!

Guest access

The house has its own parking and own entrance for total privacy.

Interaction with guests

Our home is now next door. However, we do hope to host you for at least one sundowner in our unique Roman Conversation pit with windows gazing beneath the pool. We are of course totally cool if you want to keep yourself to yourself and just chill.

Other things to note

Your own peaceful inside and outside spaces, with shared living areas, bar, kitchen, log fire and sparkling pool. There’s even a massage chair to sooth you after a day’s trek around our city!

Breakfast not included, but we do have some treats in your room, as well as coffee and tea.

Catherine will come and clean every 5 days unless you have a "do no disturb" sign on your door.

You also have an amazing pool, sauna and a conversation pit that looks into the pool that you share with two additional Airbnb Apartment guests on the property. They are completely separate from you, unless you want to engage around the pool(URL HIDDEN) "

This was my second time staying at I'M Original, but my first time staying in the newly redesigned Bamboo Suite. And it didn't disappoint. I like the location near hip Melville--an easy walk, cab or Tuk Tuk ride to 7th St. or 4th Ave. Ingrid and Astrid are lovely hosts--very accommodating and friendly, there to offer suggestions of things to see and do, and happy to share a drink of wine or to discuss current affairs on the patio. The suite is large, with a spacious bed, lounge area, huge tub, a double sinks in the bathroom. Plus, we could venture out to the common area to enjoy the dining room, kitchen, and living room. Also, a housekeeper and gardener come regularly. This is definitely my home away from home whenever I visit JoBurg!
