Interaction with Guests
Guests can have as much privacy as they want. We understand that many guests want their privacy. As an active family with 2 teenagers we are pretty much on the go, in and out but always available for a chat, a glass of wine or to give advise. We love meeting new people and especially people from other countries and places.
I love the fact that we love in a community. Just about all our neighbours are known to us. It is a very diverse neighbourhood and one would say it ranges from working class to young professionals. There are also quite a few students in the area. This neighbourhood attracts artists, journalist, architects and creative types.
We are very well located. a quick ride on a TUK TUK will take you to the Rea Vaya bus stop. The Gautrain is at the Park Station and can also be easily and cheaply reached by taxi. The best way to get here form OR Tambo would be to get on the Gautrain and get out at Park Station or Roesebank. We are more than happy to collect guests
maximum 2 people.
Best suited to a single, couple or 2 very close friends that are happy to share a double bed
The room was all encompassing with a heated bed, bathroom, hot shower and plenty of space, though compact. The studio was very clean, and had an inviting, cozy feel. Plenty of privacy. Outside of the studio is a welcoming and comfortable garden area. Perfect place to read, drink coffee, tea or just relax. Atop this, the host's husband leads excellent and informative cultural tours through the surrounding areas. Highly recommended if you want to see and experience the real Johannesburg...highly recommended. When I return I won't dare stay anywhere else.
It was a lovely stay.Just a home away from home.Highly recommended to everyone.calm and quiet place.everything is the best.Thanks Asley and sifiso for everything. I would love to come again sometime. Appreciated
I had an excellent stay with Ashley and Sifiso. Their house is in Brixton, a short drive away from Melville and the centre of Joburg. The cottage is absolutely great value. It's nice and cosy with a terrific bed. Ashley and Sifiso are great hosts. They respect your privacy, but they are there when you need them. Sifiso's roving Banto tour of Johannesburg is something different, I cannot recommend it enough to those who want to visit the real Joburg (and Soweto). Sifiso is very knowledgable and will guide through this enigmatic city. Thanks!
I had a lovely stay in Ashley and Sifiso's cottage. The cottage is cozy and the location is quiet and pleasant. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating – a great place to stay, highly recommended!
Sifiso and Ashley Ntuli are wonderful hosts. The place was as in pictures, very important to me. Comfortable and safe. Location is a few minutes walk to South African Broadcasting network(SABC), Wits University and public transportation was awesome; very close to Johannesburg CBD, to Rosebank restaurants which we took advantage of. cleaning service was once every week as promised, and included washing and ironing our clothes which was a wonderful surprise to me and my lady liked it.
Sifiso and Ashley offered to drive my lady close to school everyday kindly, made her traveling very easy and very happy. Ashley and Sifiso were always available to help us with anything we needed, will go out of their way just to help us, very humble family.
I stayed with my lady for one month and a half; we enjoyed every minute of it. I will stay there again. Very safe and comfy.
Ashley and Sifiso
We stayed in Ashley and Sifisos garden flat for two weeks, and had a really good time there. The room is pleasant and cosy and has a little patio in front, where you can sit and enjoy the sun.
We felt very lucky to meet Ashley, Sifiso and their children. They were extremely welcoming and helpful and gave us several good tips of things to do in the city (concerts, restaurants, markets, interesting neighbourhoods) and Sifiso even showed us around the city and gave us an engaging insight in the fascinating history of Johannesburg. Would definitely recommend staying in their garden flat
Ashleys place is basic (no kitchen) but nice and a good bargain! I stayed for 2 weeks to work so was out a lot (every day and most of the evenings as well).
She was so kind to stock the fridge with some basic supplies as well as providing me with a map and cab number.
Totally recommend it!

We are both passionate about Jozi and our country. I am an artist, designer and builder. My husband, Sifiso Ntuli, is a cultural activist working in the arts. He also takes people on tours: Kultural Treks through Jozitown, Soweto and beyond. Cultural Tours with a difference
We love our country and love living in Jozi....
