Im an easy going guy with a major passion for the outdoors. Rock climbing is my favourite pass time and I try do it as often as time permits. Travel is also a passion of mine - been to Netherlands, Australia, USA, Israel and Thailand so far

Jan's loft style apartment was amazing. The location is close to Art on Main which is a funky, hipster area with great food, music, and art. The location is great but there is a need to be careful a night. The apartment itself was a great size with a BEAUTIFUL bathroom and view!! Jan was super helpful with providing us with info on where to go and even gave us tips for cape town. It was def a great decision to stay there. we had a wonderful time and would stay again!
Jan was a most friendly and helpful host - a quick, no-fuss check in, good communication, and plenty of useful tips about the area and Johannesburg in general. The room is in a great location very close the the happening neighborhood of Greenside and picturesque Botanical Gardens. Standard of furnishing is basic, but that said, the room is very spacious and solid value for money.
Stayed at Jan's place for a couple of days. Jan is a great host, as he is nearby and able to resolve any issues that came up. Maboneng area which is a couple of streets behind the loft has a lot to offer culturally and artistically. I would advise anyone staying at Jan's place to check it out.
Our stay at Jan's Loft was really great. It's very spacious, open and comfortable with amazing views of the city from every window. The place is also very well equipped. We had fun cooking and thoroughly enjoyed the balcony. The location is central and interesting and the building is easily accessible. However one can't really walk around the area at night, as goes for most of the inner city in Jhb. We would definitely stay here again. Great value! Thanks Jan!
Very nice place to stay and we enjoyed the local area.
Really friendly area.
Awesome market on a Sunday
Thanks for a wonderful second stay! We loved it so much the first time we returned for an encore.
Jan was a very warm and welcoming host! He made us feel very safe and informed. He went out of his way to help us. Even phoning our car hire company for us when they were late picking us up. Thank you Jan :)
Words cannot begin to express...
Honestly, Jan's apartment is the first time I actually looked up the real estate company that owned the building because I was interested in moving in. That's how amazing it was!! The aesthetic of the apartment was absolutely unparalleled, in the most innovative part of Johannesburg. I've stayed at 3 different places, on two trips that I've had to Maboneng, and this one takes the cake.
Speaking of cake....this was my birthday trip and I woke up one morning to a knock on the front door...finding Jan and girlfriend with two cupcakes, singing Happy Birthday to me on behalf of them, and a friend who knew I was staying there (he has it rented already for his trip). These are the type of people you are Airbnbing from. It's refreshing. It's safe. It's a sexy apartment. Definitely on my to-stay list the next time I'm in Johannesburg. Loved every minute of it. Thank you both!!
This was such a great choice! Jan is an excellent host and checked in on us after we arrived and made clear he was available if we needed anything. The flat is absolutely gorgeous - clean, comfortable, and spacious, and with the best views in all of Joburg. Two of us slept comfortably - one in the bed, one on the sofa - and woke up to a pretty equipped kitchen with coffee, tea, and all the accoutrements. We would definitely stay here again!
We stayed in Jan's apartment in Maboneng for just over a week and had a wonderful time. The apartment is exactly like the photos, very comfortable and spacious, with awesome views of the Johannesburg skyline. We loved drinking our morning coffee out on the balcony and preparing meals in the kitchen. The apartment has a lot of windows, which made it feel really bright and breezy. It is within walking distance of the different shops and cafes in Maboneng - the Sunday market at Arts on Main was a highlight, as was pizza + beer + movie at The Chalkboard Cafe and Bioscope Theatre. Jan was incredibly responsive by email prior to the trip (for questions about everything ranging from taxis/Uber to recommendations for online grocery delivery) and by whatsapp/text during our stay. We commented throughout the trip just how pleased we were with the apartment, what a great find it was, and how much we enjoyed having it as a home base for shorter day trips we took to Pretoria and the Sterkfontein Caves about an hour outside of Johannesburg. Jan could not have been a better or more helpful host and we would highly recommend this apartment to anyone. We were very sad to leave!
Because it was only for one night, we didn't have much time to get to know each other, but in the few moments we have been talking, Jan immediately helped me answering some questions about my back pain. That was really nice. It has been a pleasure meeting him
Jan and his girlfriend were superb guests and took great care of the apartment. Unfortunately, we weren't able to meet in person, but Jan was very communicative with their plans prior to their visit and also during their time here. I'd be happy to host them again!
Great couple who.stayed with us here in San Francisco with.Airbnb! Very friendly, considerate,.and tidy... super warm to me and my cats too! Really enjoyed talkin with them, and would recommend them on Airbnb anywhere, anytime! Thanks so much for staying with us, and enjoy the rest of your trip! Best wishes!
The location was amazing, especially having a view of the city from the balcony. The penthouse was clean, modern and well equipped with all the essential items, it felt just like home.
Jan is very friendly and inviting as well as easy to reach. He will ensure your stay is very comfortable and that's you feel at home. I would definitely recommend meeting and staying at Jan's penthouse.
I had an absolutely comfortable stay at Jan's. Right from the get-go, he was active in messaging me and arranged a lot of things for us. We were so worried about being in Johannesburg but Jan's house was in a perfectly safe neighbourhood with two security gates! He was personally there to receive us and told us EVERYTHING about what we can do in one night. It was like having a walking lonely planet in front of us. The room we had felt like a studio apartment. It had its own living area and a sleeping and bathing area. It was simply wonderful to stay at his place where there is warmth and joy beaming! I would highly recommend this to anyone!
Jan is the most reliable and responsible person I know. He loves people and loves sharing his joys with others. His apartment is beautiful. It has the best view of the Johannesburg CBD. Having your morning coffee on the balcony overlooking the city as it wakes is such a treat. He prides himself in making it as comfy as possible for his guests and is always available to the requests of his guests. His apartment is as warm and inviting as he is. I hope you enjoy your stay at the apartment.
I had the pleasure to host Jan in The Netherlands for a few days. Jan is a clever, open-minded and easy-going guy and I can recommend him to anyone who is considering to have him as a host. As a fellow Airbnb host in London, I hope one day I can make it to SA myself and stay at Jan's.
Jan is a very close friend of mine , I would say he is completely reliable and trustworthy . He is always warm , friendly , makes friends easily and willing to provide help in anyway he can . If you are visiting Johannesburg he is the best person to get advice from .He is always in the know with regards to the most happening places and most interesting things to do !
Jan loves the outdoors almost as much as he loves people. He is a sensible, responsible yet fun loving guy. As a traveler, he is unfussy and easy going. As a host, he is relaxed and accommodating. Jan loves travel and loves showing people around new places. He has a true passion for the history and evolution of cities and enjoys sharing his off-the-beaten-track knowledge.
Jan is a down to earth, reliable and professional guy. He enjoys life and is constantly busy - either with something sporty, something adventurous or just working hard at his career. Jan will be an awesome host - you will probably meet loads of fun people with him and also go to unique places around JHB but if you a loner and like your space , he will respect that too. The rooms he has are spacious and in a perfect place for getting around Johannesburg.
