The apartment is in a fantastic new residential building (Mainframe) in the buzzing Maboneng Precinct in downtown Johannesburg, steps away from the famous Arts on Main Sunday market. The Apartment is a spacious, sunny unit with large windows and decorated in classic Jozi industrial style. The building has excellent security and great city views. With a double bed and an upstairs loft bed the unit can comfortably sleep up to 4 guests. FREE high-speed Wifi included.
My apartment is a massive, sunny studio space in Mainframe - a brand new residential building in Maboneng Precinct. The style of the building and apartment is classic industrial with brick walls and high ceilings. I've decorated the unit to compliment the industrial feel and I hope that you will enjoy the space as much as I enjoyed furnishing it!
The apartment has a queen sized bed on the main floor, and a second double bed in a loft space accessible by a ladder. This space is ideal for kids or young adults, but is definitely not for someone afraid of heights! There is plenty of hanging and cupboard space for your clothing so you don't have to live out of your suitcase.
The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering including a four-plate stove and oven, a microwave, toaster, kettle and a small bar fridge. The kitchen tops are finished in stylish and durable black granite. We provide instant coffee and tea but there is also a coffee plunger for all caffeine addicts! You'll just need to source your own filter coffee.
The apartment looks out over the older downtown buildings towards the South, however the bonus is that it is that much quieter than the front of the building! It is a perfect spot to relax with a glass of local South African wine or a cold craft beer after a busy day of sight-seeing or work.
The apartment has access to high-speed uncapped fibre internet which makes it a breeze to video call to home or to watch streaming television.
Guests can access the rooftop to soak up the African sunshine or enjoy a smoke.
Interaction with guests
The property is a private apartment and so you will have the entire space to yourself.
I'm often travelling for work and so I make use of Happy Guest concierge services to handle your check-in and check-out. Happy Guest is a small start-up company who are passionate about good service and Joburg They will be happy to help you with whatever you need for your stay, as well as advise on some great things to do in the area.
Other things to note
The apartment is on the third floor and you will have to climb two flights of stairs to get to the apartment.
There is free, uncapped fibre-enabled wifi!
No smoking is allowed in the apartment but is possible on the rooftop just above. Please no loud noise after 10pm.
Breakages do happen! If a glass or plate is accidentally broken then please do let me know so that I can replace the item for the next guest. It would be great if you could leave behind a small amount of cash that you feel is fair to replace the item.
Please note that guests may be required to produce a valid photo ID on check-in to verify against their airbnb profile. No copies will be made and ID's will not be held by the hosts - this is simply a security measure to safeguard residents and guests alike. We thank you for your cooperation in this regard.
I have been involved in the tourism industry and business consulting most of my working life. I travel a lot myself and therefore take great delight in creating a home away from home for my visitors. Joburg is one of the most exciting and vibrant places in the world right now. You just have to know where it’s all happening.
I am positive you will enjoy your stay at “Mainframe” in downtown Joburg’s Maboneng neighbourhood: an Afro-chic hub of culture, business and lifestyle.
Welcome to and enjoy the heart and soul of Jozi
