Our house is extremely central: 15 minutes from OR Tambo airport, 5 minutes from Eastgate shopping mall and 10 minutes from Sandton and Johannesburg central. Our house is 100 years old and the large bird-filled garden is an oasis of serenity. The standalone cottage is newly built and fully equipped, offering:
- living room with pool table
- king-size extra-length bed
- en-suite bathroom with shower and bath
You'll wake up to the sound of birds singing. The bedroom is large and bright. Our house is on a ridge which is almost the highest point in Johannesburg. Entrance is up a panhandle driveway which makes the property completely private and quiet.
We'll provide basic amenities like tea, coffee, milk, rusks and cereal. The cottage has a TV and DVD player with loads of DVDs. You are also welcome to watch satellite TV in the guest room that adjoins the house if there is a programme you want to watch.
The two rooms at the top of the cottage are for our guests. The room below is my wife's reflexology studio.
We are more than willing to help out in whatever way we can - we want to ensure you have a wonderful stay. Don't be shy to ask if something is not 100% or there is something we can do to make your stay more comfortable.
We do have dogs but they are friendly and are banned from entering the cottage.
We are a family of 5 (3 boys aged 13, 11 and 8), heading off to Europe for a holiday. Will be staying in Paris and then a week in Belgium, and then meeting family in Germany and London.
I am a director of an IT company, and my wife, Alexa, is a writer.
We both enjoy travelling (spent a year travelling around Australia in a caravan in 2011).
We are pretty easygoing. Not too bothered if something isn't 100%. Character and relationships are more important!
