BreakfastThis is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.

Our spacious studio flat accommodates up to three guests and is close to UJ, Wits, SABC, Media24, Milpark and Garden City hospitals and a large variety of restaurants and pubs.

Situated in a safe cul-de-sac, it's far enough from the buzz to enjoy peace and quiet, but still within walking distance from everything Melville has to offer.

This is a great place to stay - a well equipped kitchen, a comfortable bed, a lovely garden and very peaceful, while being a 10 minute walk from Melville's bars and restaurants. Marthinus was very responsive to messages and check-in and check-out were nice and easy

Omg the hosts were so friendly and their warmth and hospitality was amazing. Just what I needed when I arrived from the UK. I was made to feel at home and a valued guest. I can't praise Marthinus and Paul enough. They went above and beyond for me. I'll continue to recommend this…

Marthinus and Paul's place is amazing. The guys are super-friendly, the cottage is a steal for the space, privacy and amenities - and I loved loved loved my two little friends, Imelda and Fidel. Definitely give this place a go!

I stayed for about a month and loved it. Kind hosts, quiet yet close to Melville, great set up with unique touches, and the price. Can't be beat. There were issues with the shower that were quickly handled. Dogs were great company. Definitely staying again.
