Other Things to Note
The place in an industrial loft, so windows are not soundproofed, which mean you will hear outside noises easily. Not a good place for light sleepers. However, the best place in town for entertaining friends or clients.
Please do not park in any other parking bay but #25 or visitors. Its annoying to neighbours to come home and a car is parked in their bay.
Please Please Please close all windows when leaving the loft. If it happens to rain, then the water is damaging to the wood fixtures, floors and interior.
So James place is amazing. Its bigger than it seems in the pictures. Four of us stayed there and we were never on top of each other and had space to have our own quiet time on the three different levels of his place. The neighborhood was convenient to the 44 Stanley area shops and restaurants (though I will say it was hard to find cabs to get to other areas of the city so Uber is your best bet).
His place was very clean and the maid came in throughout and cleaned and even offered to do our laundry. James places was very secure and he even allowed us to store our luggage in his place while we took a three day trip to Cape Town. He was very accommodating to our late checkout as well. He even set us up with a guide for a personal tour of Soweto, which was amazing.
The only negative I would say is that it lacked two modern conveniences, a working TV and wifi. For some this may not be an issue but its really hard to get a SIM card in South Africa for data on your mobile phone, so wifi for international travels is a must. However I will say that James was very helpful to us as we tried to navigate the process in getting a SIM card.
I will say overall James was a great host and VERY responsive. I will say that over the course of a week we probably emailed at least 15 times.
Waow, what an incredible find.
James is a gem, the place is a palace, the location is hot and the amenities are full on.
Would never stay anywhere else in Joburg!
