What an amazing experience in Johannesburg on Becker Street! Margaret was incredibly welcoming and immediately made me feel at home! Margaret and her adorable animals, June, Hankie and Kitten, made my stay of 7 weeks feel like no time at all! The old Victorian home is beautiful a…

Short version: as a very experienced Airbnb user, I'm afraid I can't recommend this place to most travelers. If you have your own car & SIM card, don't need wifi, will rarely be at the house, are an intrepid traveler, and know JHB well, you'll be fine -- it's a great deal. But f…

Response from Margaret:
And you call this the short version?? Really Charles, if you had been a nicer person you would not have had so much disappointment. The internet option has worked for every other guest I have had, and no one else has had an issue with my neighbourhood, which is unashamedly African...if you wanted lily whiteness you should have chosen sterile Sandton. As for my knew I had dogs so if you don't have patience with animals why come to my house? I think you chose only on price, which should not be the only consideration. And what is wrong with giving guests their own fridge? Come on dude! Really? You know what really got me? You never even noticed that my arm was in plaster!!

Truly: It's more than just a room. I felt very much welcomed and comfortable in this beautiful, very well-tended 19th century Yeoville house. Margart is a lovely, unobtrusive host, who made me feel like being a guest at a friend's house.

I am a proud Joburger and love showing off my city and its hidden gems. I love cooking, chats over dinner with a glass of wine, music, art and literature. I also like quiet time at home reading and being with my two adorable dogs. I am really enjoying being an Airbnb host and mee…
