Self-catering is the rule in the house to give guests freedom and control of what to eat in terms of taste and cost. Guests can cook for themselves and the maid can show them around the kitchen. The maid cleans the whole house as a complimentary service before 12 noon every week day and laundry for personal clothing may be done by the maid for an extra fee directly agreeable and payable to the maid. An extra fee may be paid to the maid for baby-sitting too.
Interaction with Guests
I live abroad with my family. The Facilities Manager Getrude, maid Noku and gardener Luckson are always available to assist guests. A peaceful and comfortable stay is guaranteed.
Malborough is a leafy northern suburb of Harare known for its spacious gardens. The living space is ideal for relaxing and meditating indoor or outdoor.
The home is 30 minutes taxi ride from Harare International Airport. Private taxis in Harare are normally very affordable but get the recommended ones. Westgate Shopping Mall and 3D Cinema are a 5-minute drive away. It takes 5 minutes to drive to Arundel Office Park & Mt Pleasant Business Park; 15 minutes to Harare city centre. Plenty of parking space.
Other Things to Note
Safe and secure home. Four-tier intruder barrier/security system - indoor alarm system with panic buttons, out-door virtual perimeter surveyed by powerful alarm censors (all reinforced by Securico reaction service on panic signal), perimeter wall plus electric fence.
Electricity outages are common in Harare. This has nothing to do with me or my house. Instead I provide solar water heating, rechargeable lamps for alternative lighting and gas cooking. A 5.5kva Diesel Generator system is in place though I always avoid it to save the environment and prevent noise pollution. If you badly need it, please buy the diesel and it will be on in minutes. The gardener can help with this.
A 30% security deposit applies upon check-in and can be refunded at check-out time upon verification that no damages or losses have been caused by the guest and that all agreed terms and conditions were met.
Non-smokers and non-alcoholics are preferred. Generator works on diesel only and is fueled by guests who need it but operated by helper Luckson. Keep the house clean by all means even though the helper Noku will assist with thorough cleaning at least once daily. Guests may receive visitors on approval by host. Guests' visitors who sleep-over will be charged at $30 per person per night. It is not a walk-in guest house, it is a private home. Access to the property must be through Getrude the Facilities Manager who will delegate some degree of access control to checked in guests. Please pay the maid for your personal laundry but do not give her adult underwear to wash - that's un-Zimbabwean.
From Dec 01, 2016 - Jan 31, 2017 the minimum stay is 6 nights.
