We offer a sunny, bright one bedroom cottage with living area, kitchenette and bathroom. Private and secure, it opens through double doors onto a sunny, peaceful, private garden where many of our guests like to dine and relax.
It does not have a full kitchen but a microwave, counter-top stove/hotplate, fridge, kettle, toaster and dishes are supplied.
The bathroom with a shower (no bath).
The cottage provides space for your work and relaxation. Relax on the couch to enjoy the (TopTV) cable TV. Catch up on email and work at the work/dining table using the fast uncapped wifi.
A lot about how we have designed the cottage is a result of our own experience of travelling widely and of what works for us when we travel. We have created a home away from home that is simple and peaceful yet has what a traveller needs in self-catered accommodation. Our guests have told us that it work.
Oscar and Michelle have furnished and decorated the cottage to illustrate what they see as the richness of living in southern Africa. Both Oscar’s photographs, which hang in the cottage, as well as the local art and craft displayed, show what we love about living here
From the peaceful cottage you would not guess that there are shops and restaurants in walking distance and that the city, Johannesburg’s universities and the vibey and popular nightlife of Melville are a ten minute drive away.
The cottage is serviced once a week – it is cleaned, tidied and linen and towels changed. We are happy to arrange that the cottages are cleaned on extra days for a small additional fee.
We don’t offer a laundry service and instead guests have access to a washing machine and washing line on the property. We also guide guests to the “drop and collect” laundry service in the neighbourhood.
There is secure parking on the premises for one car. Our 2 secure cottages share pedestrian access from our driveway.
The cottage accommodates 2 people sharing. An extra person will be a squeeze but we are willing to allow one additional guest for an additional R75/person/night
