Join us for a cappuccino or a glass of South African wine on our balcony while you enjoy the sunset. Situated just 10km away from Sandton City and with quick access to the highway, our apartment is ideal to explore Johannesburg. The guest room is private and sunny with an extra-length, queen size bed and plenty of closet space. We live in a secure complex with a Lifestyle Center that offer: a gym, restaurant (wood-fired pizza!), swimming pool, business meeting room and free WiFi.
We share the space with you, but will happily give you all the privacy you need. The apartment has modern finishes and furniture with a spacious balcony that gets morning sun (we usually have breakfast there). We have a flat-screen television and you are more than welcome to watch movies in the living room (DVD's or any of the movies we have available), but we don't have specific channels. There is no elevator and we are on the 3rd floor, but we will happily assist you with your luggage. The apartment has plenty of natural light and we do our best to keep it absolutely spotless. The guest room has a queen size, extra length bed with a feather and down duvet and cotton bedding. We provide an electric blanket during the winter with a safety switch and a "body temperature" setting (no 1) and a standing fan during the summer. If you have any special requests, please don't hesitate to let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.
You are welcome to use the living area and enjoy the balcony as you wish. Our kitchen is restricted, since we keep a kosher kitchen. We provide separate cutlery and crockery for guests if you want to eat a takeaway / yogurt / breakfast cereals at home (we do all the cleaning-up, so you can simply leave it for us when you are done!). When we cook, you are more than welcome to join us for a meal. The gym in the lifestyle center could be used free of charge (there is a form to fill out beforehand though) and there is a lovely swimming pool (not heated). Additionally, there is a meeting room that could be booked and a general social area if you need to receive visitors. For any special requests, don't hesitate to ask.
Interaction with guests
Loraine is available to help where needed. Being local, we are more than willing to offer advice/tips and recommendations of beautiful destinations /things to do, if you need.
Since we live on the premise, we are available at any time for an emergency (you could even knock at the bedroom door during the night). If you are stuck anywhere in Johannesburg and need help, we are a phone call away.
Other things to note
Please note that 2 rescue cats are part of our family and live in the apartment. If you aren't a cat person, I would just like to mention that they are very disciplined (or as disciplined as cats could be!) and usually mind their own business. We try to keep them out of the bedrooms and they are mostly in the lounge area. If you are a cat person: go ahead and cuddle them! They are very friendly and have never even attempted to scratch us.
