Interaction with Guests
I love to meet travellers from different parts of the world. I enjoy it very much to hear their stories and to share experiences. But will also be very respectful towards guest's need for privacy and and space.
Ideal for travelers who needs a safe and comfortable place to rest after a long flight. It's close to the Airport, easy to find and an easy drive, avoiding central Joburg traffic. Conveniently close to the highway which intersects with all the major routes. Ideal for guests and on route to the Kruger National Park. Restaurants and a shopping center with a supermarket within walking distance.
Public transport in South Africa, is not fully developed, guests are advised to rent a vehicle to get around!
Other Things to Note
I am willing to transport guests to and from the airport or to any other place of interest.
No smoking in apartment, please! Guests who smoke can do this in the garden which are equipped with chairs and a table.
Elsa welcomed us warmly and made us feel at home instantly. Her lovely home/apartment was exactly as described and Elsa gave us a tour of all the necessities before leaving for the night to give us maximum privacy. How very sweet and considerate.
Elsa's was an absolute find. Her charming, spotless home, conveniently close to the airport, could not have been more perfect.
My daughter and I felt safe and welcome. Elsa being the most gracious hostess, went out of her way to make us feel at home.
I highly recommend a stay.

Absolutely fabulous! The hostess and the accommodation were both outstanding. I would recommend it to all of my friends who trust me (I hope that is a lot of people) but think of what I am willing to risk if it were only a few. If you are going to be near JNB airport, stay at Elsa's.
Elsa made us feel most welcome. She offered to pick us up from the airport which was super nice and helpful. We were only in Johannesburg for one night (long layover), so getting transportation arranged would have been a hassle. Her place is so adorable. I absolutely loved the way she decorated, and the room we stayed in was immaculate. She was super sweet and bought us muffins, while also offering us practically everything in her kitchen. There was some miscommunication (but most likely just confusion) around where she was going at one point, which had us worried, but that’s only because we liked her so much. Haha. The only thing that I would have done over would be the conversation about Wi-Fi usage. I said upfront that I was going to just “lay in bed all night and upload photos of my last two weeks of my trip” and received no protest or warning about the data limits in South Africa. As a spoiled American with no concept of anything but unlimited data, I was shocked when I received the notification that I had used up all of Elsa’s data for the whole month. Appalled, I offered to pay her for the next month’s package. One month cost 150 rand, so we gave her 200 rand (which is what I guessed would have been for the remainder of February and then all of March?). The morning of our flight, we had brunch plans with a friend across town and Elsa was kind enough to give us a ride to the mall, as well as to the airport. We were very grateful for all the transport. Overall, she was a great person to stay with and very easy to have a conversation with. I would recommend her for other Airbnb-ers!

About the Host, Elsa
I am easy-going and have a passion for travelling, art, books and music.
During my travels, I've received unbelievable kindness and generosity from the people I've met, at all the places I've been. I found that it's not the destination in itself, but the encounters with the people at these places, which creates lasting and precious memories.
When hosting, I would like to return the kindness I've received during all my travels.
