Self-contained cottage with original pressed ceilings and wooden floors in a wild, organic and indigenous garden.
Close to Melville shops, restaurants, universities of Johannesburg and Witswatersrand. 10 mins from CBD, Braamfontein & Soweto
This is a secluded and tranquil living space, with a wild, organic, bird-filled and indigenous garden. It is ideal for a single post-graduate student, or simply someone who wants a sanctuary in Johannesburg. It is situated minutes away from universities, shops, restaurants, museums and galleries.
My very first AirBnB guest is staying here at the moment.. and I am loving it.
Previously, I had rented the apartment, through word of mouth, to Master's and PhD students. They came for a month ...and stayed for years!
My house has been cited as a "haven" in doctoral theses and my last tenant (2 years), who is a lecturer in Digital Arts at the University of Witswatersand, had this to say:
"A really wonderful and peaceful apartment with an unconventional secret garden, as well as, a handy external studio space.
I really enjoyed my stay here, the host is very friendly and accommodating and so are her two great danes. The space is private and relaxing and there is also a fully fitted (hot and cold water) outdoor shower that is great in summer. A pleasant experience all around. I was sad to leave."
Guests will have their own private access to the flat, courtyard and outside studio space. There is secure parking for a small vehicle.
Interaction with guests
I live in a separate unit on the property and am available to assist guests, as needed. There is also a once per week cleaning and laundry service included.
Other things to note
I have two great danes, so guests must be comfortable with dogs.
