I was in Johannesburg briefly for business and wanted a cozy, affordable place to stay that was centrally located. Smudge Blu 2 checked all the boxes. It is well located - a short drive to the Gautrain and Benmore shopping centre. The apartment itself is quite private and has all of the essentials for any traveler, plus some very helpful extras like complimentary fresh fruits, beverages, etc. Renee and her family are so attentive and helpful. I would definitely stay there again during my next visit!
My stay at Smudge Blu was pleasant and the service very commendable. It is very safe and comfortable with a cosy feel that is perfect for unwinding after a long hectic day. I would highly recommend it to anyone who needs a place to stay in and around the Sandton area.
Lovely place and very helpful host!
Perfect for quick stop, with nice touches like fruit bowl and juice in the fridge at no charge :)
Our son Sam stayed at Renee's for 4 days, and was full of praise for her hospitality and the accommodations - he said it was absolutely wonderful. He wished for WIFI ability in areas other than the patio and dining area, but otherwise was completely happy to be there, and recommends it fully. And as an extra bonus, Renee was so kind and helpful with answering advance questions from this concerned parent in the USA!
It was a pleasure to host Sam, next time he visits the WIFI signal will be boosted all over. I know how important it is for communication these days. Hopefully I will be able to host the concerned parents when they visit SA. I think he is very brave going to volunteer in a far and strange country.
There's a reason Renee's place has received such great reviews - it's fantastic. Smudge Blu was comfortable, clean and very beautiful. It's located close to shops and amenities and in a very safe neighbourhood. Renee is an awesome host. Born and raised in Johburg, she has expert advice on great places to visit and things to do. Above all, she's extremely kind, welcoming and accommodating. I highly recommend staying here, you won't be disappointed.
Renee is a wonderful person and a fantastic host. The cottage was a home away from home for me. I would definitely stay there again. I look forward to keeping in touch with Renee as well.
We had a great stay at Smudge Blue 2 in Sandton. Very central, clean and cozy place, and such lovely breakfast! Renee is an excellent host, very friendly and helpful! The staff working at the house are great, always keeping the place neat, and very helpful and friendly. I can recommend this place 100%, and we will definately try and book this place next time we are going to Johannesburg!
Lovely place, I will recommend this to anybody.
I'll be back next year when I need to be in Sandton.
