A lovely 2 bedroom cottage. The balcony (upstairs, off one of the bedrooms) had a spectacular view of the city centre skyline, above the trees. Otherwise, the cottage had no outside space of its own, but we could use the big sparkling pool in the adjoining garden of the main house. Kenneth was a most engaging and helpful host.
Kenneth was a fantastic host. He met us at the airport, gave is a tour of the city, oriented us to the neighborhood, and gave great recommendations for food and general tourism in Joburg. The apartment was clean and lovely, in a great neighborhood, and felt very safe. Overall we had a great time in Joburg and Kenneth/Bolanles House were a big part of that! I highly recommend staying here.
Bolanles Place was indeed a "home away from home." From the fully-stocked kitchen to the comfortable beds, it was just what our jet-lagged bodies needed in Joburg. Further, Kenneth was a magnificent and magnanimous host. You could not ask for better! (And Melville turned out to be great, too!) Thanks, Kenneth--and tickle Bola for us.
Kenneth and this airbnb are outstanding! I booked this airbnb from the United States as an accommodation for an adult sibling who needed a place to stay during a family medical crisis in Johannesburg. I cannot say in words how perfect this airbnb accommodation is and how absolutely precious the host, Kenneth, was to our family. It was a difficult time on a personal level and not only was the airbnb perfectly welcoming and accessible, but Kenneth far exceeded expectations by providing transportation when needed, assisting with errands, offering local advice, and kind support. This airbnb is a gem!
We had such a great time at Bolanles Place! Kenneth and Kobus are wonderful and relaxed guys, Bola is so sweet! They welcomed us so warmly in Melville and Kenneth showed us great places (POOPY'S!!!) and helped us whenever we needed something. The apartment was wonderful and clean. So who ever wants to come to Joburg and stay in Melville - Bolanles Place is the best for it.
We love you guys and whish you all the best! Hope we see you again!
Kenneth was very accommodating (we had to shift our arrival time 3 times!), and even walked with us to the restaurant where we had reservations, pointing out cool places to visit along the way. It was perfect for 4 people, and a great central location!
Kenneth's property was just like the pictures showcase it. It's a block away from 7th Street on Melville, which is the "hipster" part of town with a lot of bars and restaurants within walking distance (kind of reminded me of the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn). The area is safe as well, we walked around each night during our two night stay for dinner and drinks without any problems (three Americans). The property is within Kenneth's gated lot and has room for one vehicle. Wifi functions well and he has the kitchen stocked for cooking if you're staying for a prolonged stay. Kenneth was very welcoming and he had great recommendations for things to do and places to checkout; we even saw him in town a few times during our outings. Highly recommended for any stays in Johannesburg.
