You won't be disappointed. The house's decor is so modern and chic almost as if you walked on to a page of Dwell or Luxe Interior+Design magazine. There's more than enough space, the 3 bedrooms are huge and its set up like a duplex. The neighborhood is safe and very easy to maneuver. A little ways down on 7th ave there are very trendy bars and tapas restaurants that line the street. The location was perfect for what my friend and I were looking to get into (Market on Main in Maboneng, Neighborhoods in Braamfontein, Apartheid Museum, Soweto tours) We used Uber to get around it was super cheap and super convenient. After roughing it on a safari for four days this was the ultimate haven almost home like. I will definitely be back on my second go round to JOZIE. Thanks Roman.
My friends and I had the pleasure at staying Roman's humble abode and it was awesome! I was a long layover in Joburg and roman was very gracious to allow me to book his place last minute. His house is very immaculate and full of cultural pieces that adds charm. The pictures does not do it justice. It is very close to supermarket and the main strip in Melville, 7th street. I would highly recommend his house to any staying in Joburg and would definitely stay there again.
Amazing home. Pictures do it no justice. Gracious, accommodating host. I spent a few days there in April for my birthday, around the Easter holiday. The home was immaculate and stocked with everything one needs for comfortable living. The kitchen was one of my dreams. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. It is the perfect retreat for anyone looking to enjoy Jozie peacefully while still having access to local culture. A short walk from a wide variety of restaurants and bars, including at least one 24-hour spot. I will be back next time I visit!
Roman's house is in a great -- fully equipped so you can cook. It's a very short walk from tons of great shops and restaurants in Melville. Roman is great about answering questions and was very gracious about letting us stay late so we didn't have to hole up somewhere while we awaited our flights out.
WHAT A WONDERFUL PLACE TO BE! YOU WILL FEEL HOME FROM THE BEGINNING! NOT ONLY BECAUSE OF THE LOCATION & THE FURNISHING OF THE HOUSE (WHICH IS UNQUE), BUT MOSTLY BECAUSE OF YOUR HOST!!! YOU WON'T FIND SOMEONE BETTER, NICER OR MORE HELPFUL!
THE HOUSE INCLUDES EVERYTHING YOU WISH, FULL FUNCTIONAL KITCHEN, W-LAN, TV (EVEN IN THE BEDROOM) etc.
