Well located on the 3rd floor of a secure block with 1 bed, 1 bath, fully equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge and a balcony overlooking the garden. The apartment has everything you need to feel at home. Large pool, fibre wifi, basic cable & parking. NEW: Nearest intersection is a Pokéstop!
The flat is large, has everything you need and is very safe. Lovely, older block with large pool and garden. In the neighbourhood are convenience shops, "Joburg's best grocery store 2015", pharmacy, gym and bottle store. Good pizza delivery place also nearby. Secure parking is available. The apartment faces NE, so gets good morning sun. Let us know if there is anything we can do to make your visit better :)
Also close to Gautrain Station (airport link), Sandton CBD, medical centres and nightlife/restaurants, and US embassy.
Wifi (20MB FIBRE as of October 2016, so twice as good as any prior reviews - fast enough to stream Netflix, enough bandwidth to upload all your safari photos), full kitchen, laundry is done weekly (no charge). 4G/LTE reception, basic DsTV. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your stay better!
Interaction with guests
We live about 5 min away. You can hang out with us or enjoy time alone. Joburg is our home, which we love to explore, so let us know if you have any questions when exploring our interesting and beautiful city. Hoping to regain Superhost status soon! (Long term guests meant we didn't qualify in last evaluation :-?)
Other things to note
Happy to try make your stay as easy and comfortable as possible. Let us know if there is anything we can help pre-arrange (e.g. SIM card - no request too big or small). We have an iron, hairdryer etc for use.
Gay friendly. #Fairbnb (That means human friendly - all walks of life welcome.) No firearms. Smoking allowed on balcony.
Please don't ask to view the place before deciding (the listing, photos and reviews are comprehensive so 9/10 times the answer will be no), or if we can negotiate off Airbnb (keeping everything via them protects you, me and Airbnb). Thanks.
1) Be cool
2) Don't be uncool.
Guests or no guests, the apartment is cleaned once a week, usually on Friday (you can request other or more days). Your laundry and linen etc will be done at the same time. Please wash your dishes and leave reasonably clean before checking out.
Please respect the neighbours and not make excessive noise at night, or invite more than 2/3 visitors at a time. Smoking on the balcony only, ashtray are under the sink.
You're our guests, but we're mostly going to leave you alone if you're quietly going about your business. So please feel free to reach out any time even if we haven't been in touch for a while.
