I live in Johannesburg South Africa. I am an independent qualitative researcher.
The appartment I stayed in was beautyful, overlooking the city. Very residential and queit part of town. Elna is a lovely and very helpful host.
Very well appointed rooms in a hilly and leafy part of town - easy access to Joburg highlights with a car. Booking via airbnb.com is slightly misleading in that while this is called a Guest House, and breakfast is mentioned in the guest literature, there were no breakfast options on offer (their Guest House website offers ZAR 50-80 options). The first night was very pleasant indeed. I was even give a free local mince dish as I had arrived after most dining options were closed. How welcoming and generous! The rest of my stay I was left more as a border with no contact with the owners or manager - a strange and abrupt change of pace.
The rooms are very comfortable, modern, and cleaned daily, and the property is close to dining options, including breakfast.
I would recommend booking through their personal website where the price is ZAR 640 with a continental breakfast or ZAR 670 with a full breakfast versus the ZAR 680 you pay on airbnb for no breakfast.
Elna and her husband Henry are a lovely couple. We recommend them high like guests. Elna told usalot of thingsvery interesting about Southafrica, she has a great conversation. Also help us about our next trip to Africa. Thank so much for the sweets from Toledo. We wish them a good travel around Spain.
