Whatever guests are comfortable with. Usually interactions consist of greetings and brief friendly conversation. As hosts living in the main house, we are available for questions and assistance in person and by phone when we are not home.
Glenwood is a vibrant neighbourhood with coffee shops and a bakery worth visiting. The art gallery is adjacent to the huge park which has recently been refurbished with jogging/cycling/skateboarding tracks and an outdoor gym. The park is well used by many people, including myself and my family.
Public transport could always be better. And that is applicable to the whole of South Africa.
