Our garden studio offers a charming, luxurious retreat in trendy Greenside for both short and long stay. It has a sunny patio, large pool, equipped kitchen, secure parking and access to our braai facilities. Please note that we are redecorating the cottage currently, it will look a bit different from the pictures.
You're only a 5 min walk away from the Greenside strip and a 15 min walk from 4th avenue in Parkhurst, both lined with street cafes, ice cream shops, bistros & bars. See you soon!

The space

The garden cottage is completely detached from the house and located in our leafy garden, next to the pool. It provides you with all the privacy you will need, whilst we love to chat or share some travel tips with you as well.
The open space works best for 1 or 2 people, but we have a sofa which can turn into a bed for a 3rd guest if needed.

What we have to offer:
- A large studio with a very comfortable queen size bed and 100% cotton sheets
- Your own private bathroom with a big rain shower and Africology shampoo & soap
- A nice kitchen with all equipment you need and some coffee, tea and rusk to start your day
- Access to our private patio, pool and lounge area
- Unlimited use of firewood for our braai or the firepit
- Off street and safe parking
- A booklet with our own tips & tricks around Johannesburg

Guest access

You'll have access to your own private cottage, which has a private bathroom and kitchen, as well as off the street parking.
We'll share the garden, patio and pool!

The otherwise great suburbian location was unfortunately let down by a noisy party next door. (In fairness, this was over a weekend, and the hosts did apologise before i could even complain) Thanks for a great stay in all other aspects.

Lizet & Wouter's cottage is such a perfect Jozi hideaway in a super cool neighborhood. They (and their beautiful dogs) are very accommodating and helpful hosts. Highly recommended!

Lizet User ProfileLizet is a superhost.

Hello! We are Lizet & Wouter, Dutch citizens who moved to Johannesburg early 2016. We love exploring our new city and we hope you will too!

When we travel throughout South Africa or beyond, we always use AirBnB and hence we are very excited to open our own garden cottage up for guests.

We are very active, love running, field hockey, rugby and hiking with our dog Fiep. As we are quite passionate about the food we eat, we are exploring the local restaurant scene at a fast pace.
Please feel free to talk to us if you have any questions about your stay.
