  • Ntsiki was an absolutely perfect host, not only in her very nice apartment but also in the big and fascinating city of Jo'burg. The room is sunny and pleasant, with a very comfortable double bed, and through the terrace it opens upon a very beautiful view of greens and blue jacaranda trees. The living room has nice furniture, space and light, and one immediately feels at home. The Heritage building is totally safe and has a lot of charm, making one imagine how the city must have looked a few decades ago.

  • Thanks to Ntsiki, I spent my two days in Joburg as a local rather than a tourist. She was available and helpful, and made an effort to show me the charms of her city.

    The double bed is comfortable and the room clean.

    I could not have asked for more from a host.

  • Ntsiki was a gracious and generous host who more than fulfilled my expectations. Joburg can be an intimidating place and she was very willing and eager to provide any information and support to make my trip go well. Her flat is great, which helps a lot too. And although the flat and the whole building are completely charming, I will go a long time before I forget how posh and comfy the bed is. It was so very welcome after the marathon flight!

    Ntsiki really made the stay in Joburg extremely great. And should you get the chance, the neighbors in the building are pretty cool too.
