Near to some of Johannesburg's best Kosher and Halaal restaurants. Also look out for top coffee shops and cuisine from around the world: Italian, Turkish, Mexican, middle eastern, Indian, Portuguese as well as typical staple of burger joints, fast food etc.

Daniel and Tracy are great hosts: super fast in their response, efficient when some follow up is needed, really a pleasure! Their place is very nice and comfortable to stay, with a porch/terasse we have been enjoying a lot, big bedrooms and a relaxing lounge. Shops are closeby and the area is very quiet and secure, we have been going for walks around the neighbourhood with my little girl (there is a nice playground closeby) without problem. So a great stay is ensured, and I highly recommend it!!!

If there was a way to add 6 stars to each of the categories I would. In all aspects this place has exceeded my expectation . Location, Convenience, WIFI, accessibility, communication, safety, and so much more - this unit and these hosts are a perfect model for all airBNB world wide. I highly recommend this place and host to anyone traveling to Joburg for the first time or as a repeat traveler. I lived here last year all yer so I know the conditions of other airBNB units and this is beyond my expectations. Daniel was always responsive to anything I was uncertain of. Made me feel right at home here.

We absolutely loved staying at Daniel and Tracy's home in Norwood. The area was safe and the house was beautiful, inside and outside. Kitchen, bedrooms, and bathroom had all the necessities for our weekend in the city. The hosts were great with communication prior to check-in and valued our privacy during our stay. Thank you so much. We can't wait to be back!
