About this listing

Our spacious home is on a plot in a luscious green valley on the border of Johannesburg/Roodepoort. 3 blocks from Northgate Shopping Mall and Coca-Cola Dome. 7 kms from Monte Casino. 30 kms to Lion & Rhino nature reserve and Sandton.

If you take the Gautrain from the airport to Sandton station, and then the connecting bus to Monte Casino, I'll be glad to collect you from there.

The space

This private room has its own Roman-style en-suite bathroom and private access to a sunny patio. There is a double and a single bed. Perfect for three people.

Guest access

Guests have access to the home's spacious, communal kitchen, dining area, the living room and entertainment area and our patio which overlooks the valley.

We have a modest-size swimming pool and numerous gardens around the property.

Interaction with guests

I totally respect the privacy of my guests and interact with them as much as they want or need. Meeting new people and learning about other cultures is one of the main reasons I decided to sign up to airbnb and as a result, my guests usually end up being my friends :-)

I offer trips to Soweto, the Lion & Rhino Game reserve, Monte Casino and Gold Reef City. Let me know if you are interested and I can do a quote for you.

Carol is an amazing dynamic lady. She does everything possible to ensure you have the best stay possible. Nothing was too much trouble for host. Our stay was far more than we expected. And she's a great cook.

What an absolute pleasure it was to stay at such a lovely and comfortable home, especially with the best host one could ever wish for. Carol is amazing! A lovely lady who is so kind and caring and constantly going the extra mile. Whether you want some private time in your room or a bit more interaction with Carol, she gives you the space and the attention! I stayed for 5 days and before the end of day 1, I felt like I had known Carol for years! I used Uber to get to her place from the airport and was planning on doing the same when I left. She would not have it and insisted on driving me to the airport. I also was prepared to walk to the Ticketpro Dome every day and walk back to her house (about a 20 min walk) and once again she would not have it and every morning she drove me there and picked me up in the afternoon. I will most definitely stay there anytime I return to JHB. Anyone staying at her place should consider themselves extremely lucky to be surrounded by such a gem of a lady!

I made a booking for a colleague at Carol's home and had very excellent feedback. Carol was extremely welcoming, hospitable and took very good care of her guest. The accommodation was great by all descriptions and we will definitely book future visitors into Carols home. Thank you very much Carol!

To stay at Carol's lovely home was so wonderful! Carol is the host you were always looking for. When she showed me the kitchen and veranda, she said: "Just feel at home, take your coffee and so on". I was really overwhelmed! It was really like staying at home! On the second day we made a Safari in the Rhinolion-park. I loved it so much. She new all about it! I have been there at the Global Rally (Forever) and she drove me to all my meetings and where I wanted to go. Thank you Carol for all you and your husband have done for me!!! I can warmly recomend her and her home!

Carol and Mike have a gorgeous home with a couple of very friendly dogs and 2 cats. We were warmly welcomed with a large room and friendly guests, and an unexpected meal. Lots of outside relaxation space with nice views. It didn't feel like we were close to Joberg yet everything was close. Conversations with the hosts were genuine and comfortable. Great info from both Carol and Mike. Hosts don't get any better!

The bathroom made me feel royal almost and having Carol as your hostess makes you feel very appreciated.

Carol User ProfileCarol is a superhost.

I am married and live with my husband on a large property on the border of Johannesburg, in a beautiful, lush valley.

I love the outdoors and South African wildlife. My husband (who is an ex-hunter) and I have a Landcruiser that we use to go on safaris. We enjoy taking tourists on safaris too, or any outdoor excursions.
