Why Kirsten van Rooyen chose Killarney

Established in the 1930's, the cosmopolitan suburb of Killarney currently is home to consulates, tall residential buildings (including some of Johannesburg's best examples of Art Deco architecture) and a golf course. Conveniently located close to the M1 highway, and main bus routes, including the Gautrain Bus Route, this area is convenient and central. Several major hospitals, educational institutions, places of worship and shops are within easy access to Killarney.

This apartment is particularly special in that it is well-maintained, and has excellent security, with sweeping views westwards over the treed suburb of Saxonwold. The apartment is newly renovated.

The art decor is exceptional, the location is convenient

  • 5 of 5

The property is accurately described on VRBO and Kirsten was available to explain other aspects and amenities in the unit. The highlight was the cleanliness and the exquisite facilities including the bathroom, kitchen and bedroom. Kirsten is promptly responsive and genuinely would like her guests to be comfortable. The walking distance to the Mall for shopping and eat-out is a plus. Certainly a place to come back to as well as recommend to my friends and colleagues.
