Staying at Manny's cottage was truly an experience. The Radium Beer Hall next door goes off, and its close enough to Norwood to walk to the restaurant district (safe even in the evening), and enjoy a culinary experience. Manny was a very obliging host, willing to pick me up from the airport, drive me to the staarkfontein caves, and drop me at the train station. More importantly, Manny is a really cool guy. who's always up for a chat, a coffee and/or a beer. Strongly recommended
Manny made me feel very welcome and helped me start my car - I had left the lights on - and to check in on line for my return flight. His listing was accurate and I had a good pub lunch at his restaurant next door.
Manny is a incredible Host! He made everything and a little bit more to help us in Johannesburg, and to make us feel at home In his place! For sure next time I'll stay at his place again!
This place is amazing!
Far better from what you can expect in a guest house, we had more than everything we want for the holiday : cozy bed room with nice shower attached, practical mobile full prepared kitchen in the garden which we didn't have to suffer the smoke or smell of our own cooking! But, we didn't need to cook much because next to our door, is a wonderful bar/restaurant which is running by the owner with great beer, beautiful food (which I believe you cant find at any place else because they are so good and unique)lively atmosphere with very nice neighborhood surrounding. All you need to do is just chill out, relax, enjoy great beer and food, hang out with nice local people, visit wherever you want, and walk back to you room peacefully! We had much more than what we pay for the price!!!
Manny provided more than everything we want! He is like our father, very care and warmhearted! He made us feel like a real home! Believe me, this man knows everything about Joburg, travel, and lifestyle. He gave us so many useful recommendation for our roadtrip to Kruger! After Kruger, we decided to cancel another guy in city, to come back to Manny place because we miss our "home"! This is absolutely the best choice if you ever think about accommodation in Joburg! 20 mins from the airport, 15 mins to city centre, you are living in the well compromising place with exceptionally nice people around.
We are international travelers. Manny's place from now become our home when we come back to Joburg!
I booked a room @ Mannys place for my 72 y.o. Dad, he was a perfect Host and did everything he can for my Dad. He enjoyed his stay 100%. Manny was a great comunicator and he even picked my Dad from the Airport! 5 Stars !!!
It was an excellent stay and i had a great time at mannys cottage ((email hidden) right by which is an absolute must do!:) ). Manny is a great host and an even more heartwarming and caring person, who wants to make your stay as pleasent as possible and seems to know just about everything you have to know,see or do while your stay in joburg! The rooms in the backyard of the cottage were clean and cosy same as the bathroom! The neighbour hood was fine and cafés,restaurants or a supermarket are near by. All in all it was a pleasent stay at manny's and i would highly recommend it to everyone who wants to have a nice stay at joburg! :)
Manny is one of the best hosts, and most heartwarming persons I have ever meet. Kind enough to pick me, a South Africa newbee, up at the airport, and helping me understand the way around SA culture and Johannesburg. Manny is welcoming and more than pleasant to be around, and both him and his wonderful friends are sure to make me come back sometime. Thank you!
