A modern private room in a garden courtyard with its own entrance. Safe and secure with parking on the premises and unlimited Wi-Fi. Guests can come and go as they wish. A security guard looks after the property at night.
This is a large room with a king size bed or 2 single beds. The room has a door leading to a garden and pool. It is semi-self catering with a tea/coffee station, a small fridge, microwave and cutlery and crockery. The bathroom has a shower only.
Guests can access the garden, pool as well as the public areas at the guest house next door with which we are connected.
Interaction with guests
I work from home and can help guests with whatever needs they have. I can arrange taxis, give recommendations of restaurants to visit in the area and organize tours in and around Johannesburg. I can also arrange for someone to collect them from the airport at an additional fee.
I started off as a reporter for a daily newspaper, moved on to become the administrative head of a media group in Johannesburg and then started my first business - a photographic library, supplying pictures for use in advertising and magazines. In 2008 I bought a run-down house in Melville in Johannesburg and turned it into a successful guest house.
Friends and family are the joy of my life. I love meeting new people and are passionate about creating a space for them that are clean, stylish and interesting. I love to help visitors find their feet in Johannesburg and to direct them to places that will give them as much joy as it gives us locals. It is important though, to keep your distance and not to overwhelm guests with your own stories and experiences. My life motto: to accept all people for who they are and to never judge.
