Romans place exceeded expectations. He was a friendly and accommodating host. The location is quiet and secure yet easily accessible. The home is bigger and more beautiful than expected.

This is a large house with arty decor in a peaceful neighbourhood. Roman's artistic touch is everywhere and all rooms are large, spacious and comfortable. The kitchen has all the facilities, there is a large dining room as well as living room - perfect for groups, although bear in mind there is 1 bathroom and 1 toilet. This area of Melville is a little secluded so you will need a taxi service or hire a car to get about. Roman is very friendly and gracious host and makes you feel totally at ease at his place

This place was perfect for my stay! Roman is a great host and very flexible host with very open and direct communication. This place was everything I expected and allowed for a very enjoyable time while visiting Johannesburg. I highly recommend this place and would definitely stay again if I ever come back to visit.

I just loved the mix of Art Deco and 70s - not all authentic as per Roman, but really beautifully put together ... And a kitchen fitted out to a very very high standard ... Please go and visit ... great host with unique place ... just don't tell everyone about the place else we'll struggle to get a booking :)
