Places to stay in Melville
In the quaint and charming village like suburb of Melville. Walking distance to all the restaurants and bars on 7th Street. All luxuries guests expect. Smart home. Gourmet kitchen. Jet-spa bath/shower. Log fireplace. Luxury 100% cotton bedding. 100Mbs fibre wifi. 42" HDTV including Netflix, Amazon, Chromecast and a PS3. Alexa, your in-room voice command host, will entertain you, and even control the lights. I also offer airport transfers and in-room massage treatment from a local therapist.
Only a two street, 3 minute walk, from the popular Melville, 7th Street restaurants and bars. The neighbourhood was recently ranked by Time Out as among the 50 coolest in the world. Let Alexa, your in-room assistant, entertain you while you tell her to dim the lights, tell you the latest news, weather or when you'd like to wake up in the morning. Cook up a storm in the gourmet kitchen with a full size fridge/freezer, 5 burner gas hob and under-counter, fan assisted oven, sealed concrete counter tops with sink and separate vegetable washing sink, including hand-made, rustic carpentry; kitchen doors made from an abandoned outside shed, to a dining table made from a recycled Oregon Pine door. The kitchen includes all the cooking equipment you're used to at your own home, capsule coffee machine, kettle, toaster, stick blender, coffee plunger, as well as all the pots, pans, chef knives, glass, porcelain and cutlery. There's a veggie and herb garden right outside, it's seasonal of course, but take what you need for your meal, there's often more than enough and we wouldn't want it to go to waste. Or just microwave a ready meal from Woolies, your choice, that's what it's for. If you want to braai/barbecue you're welcome to use the Weber in the garden. There's a washing machine and iron/ironing board you can use yourself or pay R100 per load, washed, and folded. R150 per load for washed, ironed and folded. Start up the Playstation 3 to watch Netflix, Amazon Prime or YouTube, if you want to play a game there's a few included, we've got Call of Duty, FIFA, Minecraft, Grand Theft Auto... If you want to play your own video or internet content to the TV using your laptop or mobile, you're sorted. A Chromecast is connected to the TV through the wifi network, if you don't know the in's and out's of how cool Chromecast is, full instructions are provided in my welcome pack, you can watch any of your own content or whatever you see on your device. Unlimited fibre based wifi is included free. I did say unlimited, so go mad on the downloads, nobody's going to mind. The bedroom is equipped with a Kingsize bed, fitted with 100% cotton bedding, heated under-blankets, clock radio/USB charger, hair dryer, wall safe, floor fan, oil heater, HDTV and large double cupboard. A traditional wood burning fireplace provides glorious heat and crackle in the cold winter months. The bathroom features a luxurious jet-spa bath and shower using eco friendly instant heat, gas radiation. Campus Square and the newer Rand Steam Shopping Centre are both a few minutes drive away where you can stock up on supplies. The sprawling Rosebank Mall (where you can buy the worlds' goods) is 15 minutes drive away. In room massage offered for an extra charge by a local massage therapist, Zama Cele of paradise Beauty Spa. Best to book before you come, but you can try on the night if she's available. Her last appointments are 10PM for the massage to end at 11PM. Details here: https://g.page/paradise_beautyspa and contact/WhatsApp: +27 81 021 3982 I can add her charge to your AirBnb bill if you don't have cash on you. Finally, check out my Guidebook for the best, old school and latest trending, spots to hang out in, around Joburg. You'll be in with the know, like a local.

  • Steve’s place is in one of the coolest places in a Johannesburg. The place offers amenities that I never encounter in other Airbnb’s. Like Amazon Alexa, PlayStation, etc. furthermore, there’s anything else you need for a comfortable stay. I’ll definitely go there again when I have to visit joburg. Please note that “Alexa, please kill the mosquito“ doesn’t work yet. Mosquitoes are still far superior to AI ;-)

    Our delightful garden cottage is in the leafy suburb of Melville, within walking distance of many restaurants, pubs and shops, but just far away that you will enjoy a wonderful sense of peace and quiet. The cottage features a large bedroom with a double bed, table, TV (Netflix) and couch, a kitchenette and a bathroom with bath and shower. We offer secure off-street parking for one small car. The bedroom opens onto a patio next to the pool. The cottage has a heater and electric blanket.
    Our cottage is ideal for single guests and couples. And because we're so close to the two main universities in Johannesburg, we're a great place for parents visiting kids at varsity and for visiting lecturers and academics. We're a very short distance away from the newly regenerated Braamfontein district with its Neighbourhoods Market on Saturdays as well as lots of art galleries, restaurants and pubs - to complement everything that Melville itself has to offer. If you don't fancy going out for dinner, you can cook your own meals in our kitchenette or you can order from Mr Delivery or Delivery Extreme and get yummy food delivered directly to you. The table and chairs on the outside patio are lovely place to enjoy breakfasts, lunches and dinners in the warmer months. And if you wish you're welcome to use our braai (BBQ) in our tree-lined back garden.
    Melville is a trendy suburb of Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa. It is the location of many restaurants and bars, which are mostly frequented by artists, journalists from the nearby SABC building, and students and lecturers from the nearby Universities of Johannesburg and Witwatersrand. Melville is one of the city's most popular tourist destinations. The suburb is west of the Johannesburg CBD and is a great base from which to experience all the many tourist attractions Johannesburg has to offer. We do recommend that you take the same safety precautions you would take in all other cities around the world.
  • Very clean and well maintained

    Elton2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • You can look forward to perfect and sparkling clean accommodation. John and Debbie are wonderful hosts; they gave us valuable tips for things to do. We can definitely recommend the property.

    Ingrid2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed at John's place for 2 nights and it was a home away from home. Aldo the life in Johannesburg is in Rosebank & Sandton it is a nice place to stay. The place is as discribed a gem in Melville but it you have to use Uber to get to the other places. Remember if you come to be aware of the safety isseus in the adjoining parts like Braamfontein and the city. John makes sure you have a perfect stay!

    Ivo2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • amazing place . well located just about three blocks from the heart of Millville. awesome place and its a little detached place and you feel like you got your own place. great kind hospitality . he has real coffee and a few thoughtful goodies upon arrival. planning a return visit and will be staying with him again.

    Glenn2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Realy nice apartment and a fantastic host John. Very easy communication and check in/ check out. We can only recommend it. Only Johannesburg isn't our favorite city, we use it as apartment for the flight on the neyt day.

    Christian2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • John's place is as it's named - a perfect stay near J'burg. Cozy restaurants and cafes very closely located. My arrival was smooth, the place is very clean, beautiful room flooded with sunshine and a private pool seen from the window. I also enjoyed very much the roobois tea they provided. John is very informative about the area and overall traveling in SA. I couldn't recommend more staying with this place.

    Mian2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Johns place is very centrally located. Nice and clean, and very convenient for our trip. Close to nice restaurants. Definitely recommend

    Private & tranquil poolside room in the heart of relaxed, trendy suburb of Melville. Perfectly located 1min (walk) from restaurants, bars, cafes, bakery & book stores. Full access to Netflix, Showmax, Google TV and Youtube.
    The poolside room is detached from the main house making it very private. It is located in a very tranquil setting with access to the outdoor lounge where guests can chill, read and swim. With ample closet space, a spacious bathroom and private access.
    Bistros and cafés are always packed, with the night life on full blast of live music and dancing. One of the area’s favourite restaurants is Buzz 9 - boasting its tasty menu and wide assortment of cocktails. With never a shortage of accommodation, and easy travelling routes, Melville is the place to kick back. The lively suburb of Melville, west of Johannesburg, is known for its down to earth meets trendy, coffee shop vibe – and its bustling nightlife. More like a café-style village lined with quirky shops, bistros, restaurants and clubs, peppered with a cultural mix of art and antique dealers, clothing and beading shops, Melville has become famous among locals and visitors as not to be missed for a night out in Gauteng. Melville is a bohemian suburb of Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa. It is the location of many restaurants and bars. Melville has its perks when wanting to stay up to date with what is constantly trending. What was once an old-fashioned suburb, has turned into a colourful neighbourhood. The home of local TV drama, Sewende Laan, also pushes tourists and residents towards the Bamboo shopping centre, jazz venues and the nature reserve, Melville Koppies. Day or night - the energy is alive.

  • We enjoyed our stay at Sean & Daniels- it was comfortable, clean and a great location. Communication was great, which was very much appreciated. Melville is a great spot in JoBurg; we really enjoyed the shops and restaurants (especially the bakery!). We bought some local jewelry at one of the shops, a wonderful reminder of our stay.

    Melville is the bohemian heart of Jozi, the perfect location, with all sorts of unique restaurants, cocktail bars and stores - ensuring something for every different taste. The main streets, particularly the eclectic 7th Street are well worth wandering along! Here you will find yourself exploring the second-hand bookshops, antique dealers and body-piercing salons, or sitting in one of the superb pavement cafés, simply watching people pass by.
  • Jared & Jovana's place is in the perfect location. Its close to the very popular 7th Street in Melville. The loft is rustic, yet modern and offered exactly what we needed for our short stay. Jared & Jovana responded very quickly to text messages and their self check-in process is great for when you arrive at odd times or of they're not around. Will definitely stay here again.

  • Our room was very spacious with sliding doors opening up onto a beautiful private patio. However, the bed is very uncomfortable and there is no mirror in the room to use for doing hair and make-up. Well located, clean, very safe and exceptional quick responses from our host Phillip.

    Marinette2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is one of my greatest recent finds in the Melville vicinity and everything about Phillip's house bowled me over. I was also impressed by how spacious the room I booked in was, which is a great deal and bargain compared to the money I paid. Phillip and his staff were equally gracious and super courteous, making my stay extra comfortable and enjoyable. I look forward to more bookings at this tranquil gem.

    The cottage provides the perfect base from which to explore Johannesburg (and indeed South Africa!) or for professionals to visit clients in Sandton, Randburg or the CBD close by. In the unit, soft grays and blues set a tranquil tone, perfectly complemented by the sounds of nature from our well-treed garden.
    A separate entrance with dedicated, secure parking allows guests access to the cottage. A small, treed courtyard provides space to sit and relax with birdsong. The cottage has upmarket finishes throughout and is extremely well laid out. USB charge ports are strategically installed and a laptop workspace is provided.
    Melville is centrally located to the West of Johannesburg’s CBD and within easy reach of Sandton, South Africa’s main business hub. Melville has several fantastic entertainment spots and a main attraction in itself! Other notable spots close by include 44 on Stanley, Parkhurst and, slightly further afield, The Maboneng district.

    Emmanuel & Zivie2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • I took a chance and booked this place for several times during this year. I went for the first time a few days ago and I am glad I took that chance. It was better than I expected. Lovely place, in the quiet part of Melville. Within a few minutes, you get to all the restaurants, cafes and bars. The place itself was comfortable, quiet and I always felt safe. I loved the place very much.

    Abongile2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • A great very quiet place as a base to explore Johannesburg! A little house of its own with everything you need ... where can you find that? The hosts are very nice, helpful and always with information on the spot. A supermarket, shops and bars are within walking distance. Overall, highly recommended and if I would travel to Johannesburg again, I already know my accommodation ....

    Jennifer2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Stone Cottage is excellent value for your money. The kitchen with its breakfast nook is in a seperate, smaller room to the bedroom. The bathroom is also larger than expected. So truly a cottage for the price of a room. I love staying here.

    Adelheid2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Much more than expected. Perfectly located for my trips. Will definitely see me again soon!

  • A cosy cottage in a very quiet & nice place. Thanks for your hospitality

    Jean-Marie2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay a lot and would come back anytime. The attention to detail with which the cottage was turned into what's now a cozy temporary home for travellers is visible in every corner. Having access to the peaceful garden also is a plus. This beautiful accomodation is great value for money but lacks a bit of privacy due to the missing separation of the bathroom and the bedroom.

    Marie2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • I can highly recommend to stay with Liezl & Helene. The house is very nice and has a large bathroom and a well equipped kitchen. Liezl & Helen are both very kind and responsive. I would definately stay at their airbnb again!

    Mustafa2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Hanlie is a great host and Melville soon became my home away from home. The apartment itself is spacious, cozy and quiet. Having breakfast on the veranda while all you hear are birds will make you forget that you're actually in a big city. Hanlie and her family were always helpful when I needed any sort of assistance. I'll make sure to stay with them again when I plan to come back.

    Marie2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is a brilliant place in Melville (the best place to stay in Johannesburg). It is spacious and well equipped and would be great for up to two people, the bathroom and kitchen are excellent and the balcony is a great feature. Very comfortable bed and a peaceful place to stay in general. It is a short walk to the main street and some great bars and restaurants and very close to a supermarket. I stayed here for over a month. Hanlie and Andre are wonderful hosts who manage to be welcoming, friendly and helpful and at the same time are relaxed and easy-going. A great place to stay.

The space is well used, comfortable, and the kitchen is extremely well equipped. We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more!

    Alex2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Estelle’s cottage for a couple months and I cannot say enough nice things about her Airbnb! The cottage was clean, very nicely decorated, had fast wifi and a fully equipped kitchen. The location was also central to a wide variety of restaurants in Melville. Estelle was extremely responsive to my questions both before and during my trip and was helpful in giving recommendations on fun things to do in South Africa! She truly made me feel at home during my stay. Hands down the best place to stay in Melville, thank you Estelle for a lovely stay :)

    Set in the garden of a family home, this newly renovated cottage offers double glazed windows and insulation (adhering to European standards of climate control), lots of natural light, & modern finishes.Within a minute's walking distance of vibey 7th street where you'll find the restaurants & eateries of the bohemian suburb of Melville, the cottage is perfectly situated to explore the area on foot. Parking available, but shared, and narrow. Fully disinfected professionally after each stay.
    We are a family living on the property, as well as staff, and a tenant. Parking is available, but limited due to the narrow driveway built for a horse and cart in the early 1900's! If you prefer, there is secure off premises parking 200m away. There are two dogs, a small Jack Russell, and a large Golden Retriever mix. The large dog is boisterous and will bark madly, but means no harm. He is excellent protection and security, for your safety.
    Melville is a bohemian Neighbourhood, home to Actors, Artists, Students, Journalists, Lecturers, Writers, Directors and much more. It is close to major universities, and boasts a vibey nightlife and a villagey atmosphere with a deep sense of community. Melville's inimitable 7th Street is only steps away from the BnB, and you can take a leisurely stroll and explore the many antique shops, bric-a-brac and quirky bars and eateries.
  • Michelle's place is lovely. The place has a home feeling to it and is close to shopping centers and restaurants. Great hospitality. Will be definitely coming back.

  • This place is so awesome, that i ended up booking again around their reservations over and over again. Everything is just perfect: Michelle and her family are very welcoming and they did everything to make me feel like home. And they succeeded! They are all very interesting and I felt comfortable from the first second I got there. The location couldn't be better, with all the quirky shops bars and brunch spots of 7th Street just at the end of the road. It is close enough to walk and far enough to still have your peace in the evenings. I will definitely be back when in Joburg, no question!

Another highlight was meeting their lovely dogs, and getting a visit from their adorable cat Amber in the morning! Would definitely recommend, and we would not hesitate to stay here again if we ever return to Johannesburg!

We stayed at another place near there, for the same amount of time, and there is no comparison between the 2 cottages. Besides all the tasty things Muffy supplied us with, we enjoyed our chats, and the sundowners , birds and views from their observation deck.

  • Karin's place is the ideal spot for travelling in Johannesburg. In a safe location with gated entry, it's close to bars and shops in Melville while only a short Uber ride to bigger locations like Sandton and Rosebank. The space catches the sunlight perfectly early in the day and for me was everything I was looking for. I woke up to a tiny little lizard who had managed to sneak inside onto the blinds on the first morning and from that moment, I was completely sold on the place and Johannesburg as a whole!

    Ryan2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

    The small cottage is comfortable, peaceful, and well-located in the lively and historic suburb of Melville, Johannesburg. It is separate from the main house, which dates from the 1920s, and is on a secure property.
    The living area has a queen-sized firm bed with electric blanket in winter, TV with DSTV (satellite television including a selection of international channels), broadband wi-fi, wireless speaker (to connect to your smart phone, tablet or laptop) and underfloor heating. The efficiency kitchen has a microwave, fridge, Nespresso coffee machine, kettle and toaster, and crockery and cutlery are provided. Note, there is no stovetop-oven. The bathroom has a shower (there is no bath), underfloor heating and heated towel rails. Linen, towels, and a full set of toiletries are provided. We provide a selection of complimentary teas, Nespresso pods, a bottle of wine, and a breakfast starter pack: muesli, yoghurt, milk, bread, jam, honey, and seasonal fruit. There's also a selection of South African spirits: from an award-winning whiskey to a small-batch grappa from a boutique distillery. Enjoy responsibly! And if there's anything in the vege garden that takes your fancy harvest away. For a rainy day or if you'd like to stay in there's a selection of board games, and if you play tennis there are public courts just down the street. Ask us for rackets and balls. The cottage is suitable for a single person or couple. Maximum of two people. We can provide a crib for an infant. If you don't have any airbnb reviews please tell us a bit about yourself when booking: what you do, what's your reason for visiting Joburg, and the like.
    If your trip allows for it Joburg has more than enough to occupy you for three or four days. So don't just fly in and out of the city! The property is a mere two blocks from the lively 7th Street with dozens of restaurants, pubs and bars, and boutique shops. So you're close to the action but also sufficiently far away that you'll hear none of it. The cottage is within walking distance to the University of Johannesburg, SABC, and Johannesburg Country Club, and a short drive to the University of the Witwatersrand, and central Johannesburg. Rosebank is a 10-minute drive and Sandton 20 minutes away.

The neighbourhood is safe to walk around in and the room is clean and stylish. I'd happily recommend anyone visiting Joburg to stay here.

    Set in the heart of vibrant Melville, you are a minute's walk (200m) from the renowned 7th Street. A base from which to explore restaurants, bars, eclectic 2nd hand shops & so much more - day & night. Guests have their own entrance and are welcome to help themselves to tea, coffee & milk. We love interacting with our guest but are very respectful of their space whilst staying. #420friendly #lgbtqifriendly #everybodyloveseverybody
    The cozy space is on the ground floor and is attached to a lovely courtyard which is great for morning coffee and a good book. The cottage has a queen size bed & a nice sized shower, a small kitchenette kitted with all the basics, as well as a small workspace and couch for kicking back.
    Melville is the bohemian heart of Jozi, the perfect location, with all sorts of unique restaurants, cocktail bars and stores - ensuring something for every different taste. The main streets, particularly the eclectic 7th Street are well worth wandering along! Here you will find yourself exploring the second-hand bookshops, antique dealers and body-piercing salons, or sitting in one of the superb pavement cafés, simply watching people pass by.

Room also gets great cross ventilation so it stays nice and cool. Area is also really great, a lot of coffee shops and bars and delicious food with a supermarket not too far away. Would recommend to anyone for a stay of 3 or 4 days. No cooking is available but for the price, you can just go get some cheap food down the street so it wasn't a big deal at all!

    Please read reviews from other guests. I love my house and love to share with the Airbnb network. Melville is VERY central! My house spacious, safe, calm and convenient. The house is 2 blocks from famous 7th street restaurants and 27 boxes "container" centre. Also 3 minutes drive to UJ, WITS, Media 24 and SABC. In the heart of Melville artistic lively township and 10 - 15km to places such as the famous Maboneng Precinct in Fox Str or Soweto, Vilakazi Street. Pretoria is 60km away or 38min with the Gautrain. Car rental recommended for visits to Cradle of Humankind, Sterkfontein Caves as well as Hartbeespoortdam area or Magaliesburg. Otherwise, UBER is the way to go in Johannesburg.

On the one side we have University of Johannesburg and on the other side University of Witwatersrand.

  • Marie's place is great - it is in a really nice neighbourbood, five minutes walk from lots of cool bars and restaurants. The bedroom, pool, and outdoor area are all as lovely as shown in the photos.

    A double en-suite, semi-attached house in the heart of wonderful Melville. This open plan home is full of light, color and comfort. There is one queen bed, 2 single beds, a spacious living/dining area and a modern kitchen. The house is very safe and secure with super fast internet and off street parking. Suitable for families, friends or business people. Just a 3 minute walk to the famous 7de laan to enjoy all that Melville has to offer while still being centrally located in the Joburg area.
    An open plan and spacious dwelling, make yourself completely at home in your own Melville house. There are two bedrooms, each with their own en suite bathroom, a spacious living and dining area and modern kitchen. For extra comfort and luxury, the bedrooms are fitted with 100% blackout curtains, all beds are dressed with high thread count linen and all towels are bamboo thread. We live just next door in the "twin" home which shares a common wall, garden and parking with this house. The property is very secure with high walls, electric fencing, security systems and off street parking.
    Melville is a wonderful suburb with a rich history full of art, music, food and drink. It's famous for its eclectic blend of residents and guests, its bohemian feel, welcoming and often quirky establishments and colourful night life. Any time spent in Melville, day or night, is always memorable.
  • The house is wonderful, of outstanding quality. It takes only a few steps to 7th Street with a variety of bars and restaurants and 27 Boxes with shops and galleries is even closer.

  • Lovely spacious and stylish spot! Our hosts were very patient with our changing requirements and we had a most wonderful stay. Many thanks for the thoughtful bottle of wine. Seats overlooking garden, just lovely.

  • An amazing place to stay! Great area- we walked to breakfast in the morning and felt really safe. Lots of nice places to eat and have coffee nearby. Really lovely hosts- they even let us check in early so we could have a shower after our flight. Couldn't recommend this place more.

    Katherine2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • The place was very clean, big and thoughtfully decorated. It is in the middle of Melville which allowed us to explore the neighborhood on foot. It has a lovely porch and a beautiful small garden perfect for our morning coffee. It was easy to find and the communication with Lizzy the host was very good. I can recommend the place and will try to stay there again when i’m in Johannesburg.

    Franziska2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • We arrived Jo’burg early in the morning and Lizzy were happy to let us leave our baggage and have the apartment ready for us earlier than the regular check in time. Lizzy also gave us lots of local tips in Jo’burg and Cape Town! The apartment is very stylish and elegant; spacious and sharing a garage/garden with the host. It’s located in the Merville which is a safe, clean and well-off neighborhood with lots of nice restaurants and shops.

  • A comfortable, quiet and attractive place in a leafy neighbourhood with lots of places to eat and drink nearby. Used the terrace for evening reading and wine. Very glad we stayed in Melville at this flat!

  • The place is amazing to say the least. Phillip is an awsome host, very considerate host ever. The cleaners are amazing, the place was clean everyday. I fell inlove with Netflix at Phillip's place and the Wifi never dissapointed. It is close to any type of transportation:Reyavaya, taxis, uber easly accesable and your car will always be parked in a safe place. 15 minutes from Wits Medschool which was a bonus for me! Phillip's place is value for money for sure. Ohh the bedding, towels and any other thing in that room is sparkling clean! This is home away from home for sure! Thank you Phillip
