Walk to the Zoo in 15 minutes!! On offer is a private bedroom and newly renovated bathroom in a large upmarket duplex. The building doubles as a hotel complete with a front desk, gym and pool area. Also includes breakfast, wifi, Samsung TV with cable and new appliances. Parking available.

The Space

The apartment is large (116 sq meters / 1250 sq ft.) with 2.5 baths (2 ensuite and a W/C downstairs). The unit has high ceilings with large windows that get plenty of light.

Apartment is also a duplex with the two bedrooms and study located upstairs. Your bedroom comfortably sleeps two people. Extra people can sleep downstairs on the couch for an extra fee

Guest Access

You will have full access to the kitchen and living room areas as well as the guest bathroom downstairs. I will respect your space if we are both home at the same time.

Use of my computers are off limits. I have very good, fast and uncapped Wifi internet (a rarity for home internet in South Africa). I suggest you bring a laptop

Interaction with Guests

It is up to you how much we interact. I am happy to chat during the evenings when I am home or stay to myself. Completely up to you.

Unless otherwise stated, I will usually be around during the evenings, weekends and public holidays.

Happy to take you around or give advice on where to go.

The Neighborhood

Riviera / Killarney is an extremely chill place and very Green. Killarney and Houghton are very residential and actually very pleasant places to walk around (rarity for Joburg) The neighborhood is bordered by the Joburg Zoo to the west and the Killarney Golf Course to the East.
Major highlights here include:
Killarney Mall (5 min walk) - Groceries, movie theater, restaurants, pharmacy, shopping, (website hidden) Zoo (20 min walk)
SA Museum of Military History (10 min walk)
Munro Drive (5 min drive) - Steep incline creates opportunities for scenic views of Johannesburg
Nelson Mandela's Home (5 min drive) - Yep, I'm neighbors with the great former President and awesome Humanitarian!!
Shops at Rosebank Mall / Gautrain Station (5-10 min drive) - This mall is absolutely massive any shopping need or cinema experience can be found here. The Grillhouse at Rosebank is know as one of the best steakhouses in town. Nightlife can also be found here.

Getting around

It is highly advisable that you rent a car as public transit in Joburg is nearly non-existent save for the Gautrain. Parking at the building is free. For longer stays, I will provide you a parking pass.

If you do not want to rent a car, I can fetch you from the Rosebank Gautrain station when you come in from the airport (work permitting). There are some attractions within walking distance of the apartment. Alternatively, you can hire a driver for the day.

About
Originally, from Washington D.C. Recent Wharton MBA graduate working as a consultant in South Africa. Travel to Europe often, love Jamaican and Tex Mex foods, and have been recently bitten by the bug that is house/electronica music. In Joburg, I like to check out new places, teach math in Soweto and hang out around Arts on Main and the Neighborgoods market on the weekends. I'm a quiet guest who likes to leave things as they're presented to me and like to take things easy. As a host, i'm not around much during the week (out by 7AM and home by 7-8PM) and like to keep it low key on weekends. Would love to take guests around to do touristy stuff around Joburg as I haven't done much of it yet. Regards, Davian
