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 travellers who needs a safe and comfortable place to rest after a long flight. It's close to the Airport, easy to find and a comfortable 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
Transport to and from the airport, or any other place of interest, available on request.
No smoking in apartment, please! Guests who smoke can do this in the garden which are equipped with chairs and a table.
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.

I had a wonderful stay. Elsa was super helpful when we needed help with anything!!
Love to go back! Definitely recommend!
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!
Spent eleven days at this delightful very well appointed two story apartment. Has all the cons for a restive stay; very clean and neat with high quality furnishings and linen. Within walking distance to two shopping centres and restaurants. Relatively safe locality with limited foot traffic in the evening. Hostess Elsa extremely friendly and more than willing to go that extra mile. Recommended for close proximity to OT International Airport,easy access to the East Rand and homely ambiance. Elsa's lead light craft is worth the visit !!
Elsa was very sweet and her home was absolutely beautiful. We had a brief but very lovely and comfortable stay and nights rest at her home which was very conveniently located close to the airport and with a shopping center nearby. Thank you Elsa!
We loved staying at Elsa's cozy home. Elsa was very easy to communicate with, showed us around her home and garden, and even had bought breakfast treats for us to enjoy. It was the perfect place to stay after a long flight.

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.
