  • Roman was fabulous. Very friendly and accommodating. The house was gorgeous and very clean and organized. The weather was great but a sudden cold front came in and got very cold so Roman brought me heaters and extra blankets. I was only there 2 nights on business and didn't really get to enjoy the home as much as I'd have liked with all of it's designer touches.

  • Roman was quite helpful before our arrival by providing restaurant recommendations. He was very welcoming! We had a short stay and definitely would stay for longer.

  • Well I dont even know where to start. This was easily the best experience I have had with Airbnb worldwide. The home is incredibly beautiful, the beds are extremely comfortable. But the best of all is Roman. It is a great comfort to know that he is next door. He's the Hostess with the Mostess! Always available and just a great person to have a chat with. Just the best in every way!!!!

  • This was the first time for me using airbnb and, for sure, not the last. And I had a wonderful start with Roman Handt in Johannesburg. He was there to help me with what ever I needed. And he did it in a very nice way.Thumbs up!

  • We had a blast at Roman's apartment this past weekend! The apartment/house is a part of a "duplex" with Roman living on the other side. That said, there is plenty of privacy with one's own entrance and small backyard with an outdoor table and braii area. The upstairs could be a bit cramped with 6 people sharing one bathroom, but we were fine. The apartment is new, clean and modern with a gorgeous kitchen and dining area downstairs.

    We really enjoy Melville (just a short walk away) which is a fun neighborhood and centrally located for convenient exploring of Johannesburg and its surroundings. Roman even helped us order food delivery on Sunday night and his two little dogs got along well with mine. We very much look forward to staying at Roman's place again on our next trip up to Johannesburg!

  • I would highly recommend this lovely house. From the first email exchange with Roman, it was a very positive experience. This three bedroom home is fully equipped, nicely furnished and is immaculate. Melville is a wonderful area in Jo'burg, with very good restaurants within walking distance. Roman lives next door, and was on hand to greet us and show us around. We were assured that someone would be on hand if anything was needed. My son, who I was with, stayed here on a previous occasion and we would definitely book it again, when in Jo'burg.
