The Space

A rare find in Johannesburg -
3 spacious bedrooms, 2 bathroom house in the sought after suburb of Parkview. It is set in a tranquil, treed garden, with a private fenced swimming pool.
It has a lounge with fireplace, dining room, and full kitchen with washing machine.
The house is original with bay windows and gorgeous pressed metal ceilings.
The bedding is white percale linen.

Parkview is that special suburb, that once you discover it you never want to leave or stay anywhere else
The Zoo Lake, and Joburg Zoo are in walking distance

The Parkview Village Shops are about 1km away

There is plenty of off safe street parking behind remote controlled gates.
We welcome children and we are also pet friendly

Ideal for family holidays or whilst relocating , or renovating, perhaps waiting for your container.

Close to the city, Braamfontein, Parktown, Rosebank, Wits University and all the main large hospitals. Its very close to The Milpark Hospital and the Genesis Clinic.

One special mention whilst we await news from Airbnb.
Unfortunately there is one review below that isn't great - we decided not to respond to it. Prior to the guest leaving this particular review we had already reported the him to Airbnb for extortion and other issues - despite leaving such a review he extended his stay and then tried not to pay at all for his extended stay. He actually threatened us with a bad review if we didn't let him off the payment. It was very upsetting for us especially as it was during the period of Nelson Mandela's death and funeral, and the country was in mourning, and there was a wonderful feeling of Ubuntu, so the contrast was even greater. Once every few years one unfortunately encounters such a guest., but luckily few and far between. Please check our other reviews under Remote Corner. There are lots of reviews on many booking sites you will see nothing but great reviews.

The Internet has now been improved with an additional line, however this is Africa and we do not have fibre optic cables capable of high speed, but it is perfect for normal emails and non video (website hidden).
