When required. Always have a staff member at home.

The neighbourhood

The golf course is nice for early morning jogs. Streets have mansions in and are lined with huge old trees. Central and easy access to M1. Easy walk to Killarney shopping centre. Gautrain bus stops there too. Area of choice. This is where Mandela and Mbeki have chosen to live. Have a armed security company which patrol streets 24/7. Response time three minutes. Also has a security guard.

Getting around

Killarney shopping centre is easy walk from here. Has a taxi rank and Gautrain busses stop there too. However, due to being so central uber cheaper than Gautrain or public transprt

House Rules
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
May not be safe or suitable for children (2-12 years)
Check in time is 10AM - 8PM

No smoking in home.

Please do not ask a third party to book. Qualifying for a credit card at a bank screens strangers. I owe it to fellow guests to only accept reputable guests.

Please do not book for one guest if you are two. If anybody try to side step paying the commission to airbnb they are not ducks from our dam and a no no

There are staff members who can do washing and ironing at an additional fee. Not included in price.

Leave kitchen clean out of consideration for other guests. Also - please set table for meals and wipe hands to protect furniture from fat marks. No eating in bedrooms for same reason - lots of tables in and outside to have a meal at. This will ensure that you become part of the "family"

Please be considerate when other guests are sleeping.

The address is on airbnb and I make sure that there is somebody at home 24/7.

Please note that we are not 29 8th avenue - River street has two sections and you must come in at 11th avenue. I do not want a phone all if you end up at 29 8th avenue - you are suppise to enter River street from 11 th avenue! It is unpleasant to receive phone calls at all hours, because guests do not pay attention to directions!

Book in before going out. We only accommodate late arrivals when an international flight arrives late.
Staff lives on property but their sleep hours to be respected. Some guests go out and expect to book in after midnight - NO. Unless it is a late flight.

Grietas place is nothing like the pictures posted, it is hard to find and she didn't make it any easier. We didn't even stay we took one look and decided to go book in somewhere else because it was not what we expected. The place is a mess and the rooms are not so nice and look nothing like the pictures.

Response from Grieta:
She was requested by me to book somewhere else. Mothegi booked for one person and four arrived. I will not allow four people in one bedroom and requested that she adjust her booking on airbnb as I expect honesty about the guests who plan to stay. Furthermore, I expect that the guests who plan to stay in my home, qualify to book through airbnb and use their own credit cards for safety and security reasons. Mothegi used her credit card as the guests do not qualify to use airbnb. As her guests walked into the house the all complimented us on how beautiful the home is. Furthermore the 100 plus positive reviews about my home cannot all be wrong and she right?

I find Grieta, such a beautiful lady in an absolutely lovely charming house. My stay was highly enjoyable with various sharings and attending events at her restaurant at 44 on Stanley was simply awesome. The house is a peaceful haven with a distinctive taste. A refreshing garden with a lovely mint aroma overlooking a swimming pool greeted me every morning. Very well situated property and a few minutes by Uber to Rosebank Mall and within walking distance to other local malls. High five-Loved it!

A stunning house ideally situated to everything you could need. The M 1 highway is close by as well as 2 major shopping malls. Grieta was a very kind host and everything I could need was available. I loved the gardens and the house itself was so tastefully decorated. The 24/7 security was that added level of comfort.
