Paulo & Kirti
My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of lodging with Paulo and Kirti for a week during the World Cup in South Africa. It was an amazing experience, improved by the safety and security of our lodging. The apartment is located in a small community in Sandton, with 24 hour security guards at two different gates, guarding our apartment. At first I was taken aback by the amount of security, but after a couple of days in Johannesburg, we could only be grateful to feel truly safe in our temporary home base. The apartment is a delight to live in -- very comfortable and spacious, with an eclectic variety of decorations throughout. Our hosts were incredibly welcoming, providing us with a welcome package of small gifts from South Africa/Johannesburg. We were able to meet with Paulo and Kirti when they helped us set up our internet connection at the apartment. They are a charming and friendly couple, well-balanced with equal parts gregariousness and business-like efficiency. This apartment is perfect for a person, couple, or family with any needs -- there is a kitchen, outdoor balcony, a bathtub AND shower, and a fantastic TV. Paulo and Kirti proved to be very flexible and helpful, recommending restaurants, places of interest, shopping areas, and even referring us to a car repair shop when we had car problems. We would be very happy to book with Paulo and Kirti again if we ever had the chance.
Unfortunately we were unable to meet Paulo and Kirti on schedule due to flight troubles, we had to forfeit a 3 night stay with them.
"Welcome, are you comfortable?, how can we help you?" are three phrases you'll often hear from us.
We try to ensure that your stay with us is a positive and memorable part of your trip.
Easy going hosts who offer you convenient, comfortable and safe accomodation, when you're away from home.
