Although the house is situated is in a busy semi urban area there is an African bush lodge feel to the house which allows you to relax and feel like being in the countryside. The thatch roof helps to shut out most of the traffic noise.

The loft is as advertised, perhaps even better. The location is a bit misrepresented - certainly not within walking distance to Monte Casino. The breakfast was disappointing considering the other guest's comments. Elsbeth is a very approachable person, and easy to chat with. She does try and please.

Elsbeth was a wonderful and considerate host. She ensured that me and my girlfriend were comfortable and felt welcomed. The breakfast was delicious and she even made us fresh squeezed orange juice. The location was also excellent and right across from montecasino so we always had something to do. The room was lovely.

I had a truly wonderful time staying with Elspeth. The loft is exactly as described, and it felt like I was staying in a beautiful tree house. Elspeth is truly an incredible host and person, and I enjoyed my time there immensely. I've been transitioning to living in South Africa, and she helped me figure out where to go to get things, how to get around, and what fun things there are to do. She went above and beyond to make me feel welcome, and she also made incredible breakfasts every day. The loft has everything you might need, and I love sitting out on the porch with a glass of wine watching the sun go down. I highly recommend anyone to stay here.

Elsbeth is an amazing host. This is my second time staying at her lodge and I felt even more at home this time. She was very friendly and if I had a question she was able to quickly help me. The lodge is very cozy and the room is a decent size. If needed you have easy access to Monte Casino and Fourways.
