Tina was very helpfulll (gave us a lift to a laundry place and to the airport) and the breakfast was delicious. Thank you Tina!
Meerkat Manor was a terrific end to my trip. Tina and her family were so kind and helpful, with great suggestions and knowledge of the area. After a few days of long drives, it was the perfect refuge to fall asleep for a long nap, in a peaceful corner of the big city.
Beautiful pool and gardens, and a tasty breakfast.
The room was huge and very cozy, and the bed quite comfortable. This a great place for travelers coming in to, or leaving from, OR Tambo.
Thanks again, and my best!
Tina is a great host. You won't get bored staying at her place. very practically located between the centre city and the airport, it is very clean en well decorated. Good restaurants are a few hundred meters away. The beds are large and soft. A great garden with nice pool. She'll have plenty Heinekens cold. And the breakfast, well; if you're tired of your bacon and eggs you'll love the (enormous amount of) fresh fruit, yoghurt, real bread(!) cheese and meat.
Tina & her family were very nice & welcoming. The room was super nice, clean and I wish I would have had some more time to spend at the pool. I absolutely enjoyd my stay & would definitely stay there again. Thank you guys so much for the great breakfast, for your hospitality & also for the lifts that you gave me ;-)
Had an absolutely wonderful time. The suite was immaculate and the hospitality was over the top. Had a great time with Tina and really enjoyed playing with the happy dogs.
Highly recommend this bnb.
She even gave me a ride to the airport!
We had our best night's sleep in South Africa in the accommodation suite at Tina's. The third in our party stayed in a guest room of the main home. Tina's home is truly "our home". She did not just serve us, but sat and conversed with us over breakfast. She even gave us a ride to the airport. Tina's home would be a good lcoation for touring Johannesberg, without being in the middle of the urban center.
You'd like to think that you are in control of your travel plans...but so often the unexpected happens. Or you arrive in a place and realise that you are not prepared for what you are about to experience. I had no idea what to expect for my first trip to South Africa. By staying with Bettina, I was warmly welcomed to the country and immediately made comfortable. There is no better experience than to travel to a new place and to be greeted by someone who has lived there virtually their whole life. One cannot put a price on local knowledge and amazing conversation. Bettina's candid comments on South African culture, history and politics were exaclty what I was looking for. "We wander for distraction but we travel for fullfillment." Airbnb is for the traveler.
Comfortable, clean, close to the airport, helpful hosts. Pleasant suburban spot to stay about 20 minutes outside of Jo'burg.
Without a doubt the most generous and helpful hosts you could ever find. Beautiful accommodation
and whole stay 10 out of 10. Dream
Tina and Will were wonderful guests, very relaxed and I really hope they enjoyed the Pearl Valley experience, totally relaxed, non demanding.
