Description

The Space

Welcome to our little haven of comfort and convenience! Set in a beautiful, secluded and lush flower and vegetable garden, our two-person cottage located next to the house we live in offers visitors a safe, centrally located stay-over that’ll ensure your visit to Johannesburg is both hassle-free and memorable.

Our suburb, Mayfair West dates from the heyday of Johannesburg’s golden age when it was a mining boomtown. Today it’s a vibrant and colourful multi-cultural community, typical of the changing and regenerating face of the city.

The cottage is a spacious 50 square meter living area featuring a kitchenette, dinning area , comfortable bedroom and modern en-suite bathroom with shower.

The kitchenette includes a fridge, microwave oven, one plate induction table top stove, toaster, crockery and utensils. You’ll also find a ready supply of ground coffee and South Africa's famous Rooibos tea! If you stay longer than three days, a complementary bottle of South African wine will await you on your arrival.

In summer you can have meals outside in any of the three outside garden patio areas.

The bedroom features a comfortable double bed with crisp linen and duvet. The room also includes a hair dryer, extra blanket, towels and television.

In colder months you will find, warm cosy winter linen, an electric blanket and a heater to keep you warm.

There are many extras that make it a home away from home - loads of books to read, music and television with movie channels. It goes without saying that the WiFi is free and fast, making communication with your loved once at home easy!

You’ll also be within a five minute walk from our local shopping mall with a post-office, supermarket, banks, and the best fish and chips in town!

Because we’re centrally located most sightseeing attractions and places of interest are within easy reach and only a short ride away. The Apartheid Museum, Gold Reef City, the attractions of the rejuvenated Johannesburg CBD and the arts districts of Newtown and Braamfontein are all reachable in less than fifteen minutes drive.

It is ideally located for exploring Johannesburg, and perfect for the professional traveller visiting Johannesburg for work or study. The University of Johannesburg and the Wits University takes less than five minutes to get to, and the SABC, Chris Hani Baragwanath hospital and various NGO offices are all a short drive away from the cottage.

For transport, we’re a mere ten minute drive from the Gautrain Park Station from where you can catch either a taxi or the famous tourism red bus for a day trip around Johannesburg's main attractions. The cottage is on a minibus taxi route to Newtown and SAB world of beer museum. Uber is well established in Johannesburg, and Uber taxis are normally only three minutes away to take you anywhere at a reasonable price.

Please let us know your approximate arrival time beforehand so that we can make arrangements to meet you at the cottage. We'll then show you around and share a few tips and tricks about the area, what to see, where to eat, and so on.

Johannesburg, South Africa · Member since August 2013


We are two native Johannesburgers who love the city and know it inside out. We have both travelled extensively both abroad and around South Africa, so have experience of the needs of travellers when staying over away from home. That’s why we believe our cottage fits the bill for all discerning visitors to Johannesburg!




Adeline is an accomplished chef and you most probably won't leave without a packet of her mouth watering chocolate chip cookies. Charl is a photographer, and you'll see some of his images from the far-off corners of South Africa adorning the walls of the cottage.
We’re sure you’ll enjoy the hospitality we offer, and hope to meet you soon!
