Natural, bright studio apartment, with an afro contemporary feel and white linen. Fast wifi, comfortable and peaceful space to work or rests. Connected to 7th with private staircase. Great views of the Melville koppies, on a beautiful quiet street. Lock-up garage for 1 car. Come and enjoy it!
Beautiful crisp an clean space renovated in December 2016, with two lovely window seats for reading, (lots of brilliant books in the book case) relaxing and enjoying views of the blue sky and lush indigenous garden. Furnished in an eclectic yet minimal African style with textiles, grass matts and objects collected on my African travels. There is no TV, but the intimate dining table for sharing travel stories over meals while listening to the local radio has it's charm. I provide a basket with rusks and rolls from our local bakery, for dipping into you morning coffee - real South African style. There's a proper bathroom with a full bath and a well stocked kitchen with a fridge, stove, oven, kettle, toaster and plunger. The outside verandah is lovely for breakfasts and if you walk around the house to the back yard you will find organic herbs and veggies growing, please help yourself!
The studio cottage is accessed from the street through the garage door or pedestrian gate. Halfway up the stairs your will find your own front door, to which I will provide keys to upon arrival. The studio has access to its own veranda and garden. If you follow the stairs further up you will get to the gate to my veranda. Even though the studio cottage is connected to the house it is private and secure. We have a 24 hour guard on our street and have lived here for 16 years without any problems.
We are an easy going little family, so feel free to come up the stairs for any assistance, advice or info. I work close by and am usually in the area. If I am not home there is always someone here.
Lala Salama is child friendly! I have a cot and lots of baby / child goodies as I have a 3 year old son who is the joy of this home.
The studio is a smoke free zone but there is ample outside space for doing so. Late night music and parties are best enjoyed in 7th steet and not in the studio please.
Designer working in the fields of heritage, arts and culture. I'm a single mom of a 2 year old boy, - joy of my life. I love music, nature and have an insatiable enthusiasm for Greece, good food, community, simple pleasures, beauty, and dancing. I believe in the inherent good of humanity and take my inspiration from all of creation. I grow herbs and vegetables in my back yard and my siamese cat is as old as the hills. We look forward to sharing goodness with you.
