I stayed with Denise for one month and her B&B was very well suited for the purpose of my stay. Denise was very professional and her room was not very far from great restaurants and bars. Her Giraffe room was very well equipped with a heated blanket (good for winter!), hair dryer…

Response from Denise:
Hi Jessica and thank you for your review. I am concerned that you mention that the room was only cleaned 2-3 times a week and the bed not made every day. I employ 2 helpers and they work on alternate days except for a Sunday when I then see to the rooms. Your room should have been cleaned every day and your bed made as well. I am sorry that you did not mention this to me when you were here so that I could have taken it up with the helper/maid who worked on those particular days as this is not acceptable service to guests. I sincerely apologise and will certainly be addressing this matter with both helpers and do a more stringent check of the rooms. Otherwise, it was lovely having you stay and getting to know you. Thank you for posting back the keys and will let you when they arrive. Go well.

We had a great time in Joburg thanks to Denise. She met us at the airport and took us to our tourist destinations. We felt very safe at her home and in her neighbourhood. You will not get a better breakfast than at her home. We highly recommend staying here.

Staying at Denise's for three days was the perfect introduction to Johannesburg and South Africa. The home is in a quiet corner of Melville, but still within walking distance to many great restaurants and bars. Her house is beautiful and comfortable, and Denise strikes the perf…

Denise is a fantastic host, we became good friends by the time I left! She is incredibly accommodating and helpful with figuring out how to get around the city and where to go for fun stuff to do. I was traveling with my dad, and she was very gracious and went out of her way to m…

Staying at Denise's was wonderful. She is very hospitable and generous. Not only was she there to answer my queries or assist with any arrangements I wanted to make but also to chat and give me the feeling of being "at home". Her house is lovely with a nice little garden in the c…

It is a good place with secure parking. I saw the security company doing it's rounds during the day and at night. The bnb staff was always available to help me with laundry (ironing). Denise was also helpful and answered any questions I had. My room was cleaned regularly. The o…

Response from Denise:
Thank you again. Concerning the visiting hours of guests - the majority of my guests are overseas tourists and I previously did not have set visiting hours for guests' visitors but a number of overseas guests complained about noise, talking and people coming in and out of the gate and front door. I therefore, had to make a decision hence the visiting hours. Overseas guests are usually back at the B&B reasonably early because they have had a full day of visiting museums and tourist sites. They also generally go to bed quite early and because the majority of my guests are overseas visitors I had to put visiting hours in place. I do make exceptions with guests who visit often as I know they can be trusted to come in and out quietly etc. Hope this makes sense but thank you for being so obliging and respectful of the rules.

I enjoy meeting new people, cooking, drinking wine and chatting about all sorts of interesting things. Love the outdoors and walk, cycle and hike as much as I can and travel when I am able to take the time off from work. Thoroughly enjoy running my bed and breakfast as I meet s…
