Our hospitality. We know our city and want our guests to make the most out of their time here. We can put you in touch with reliable guides and drivers who charge reasonable rates. If you want recommendations as to where to go we can help.
Their bedroom and bathroom, the indoor guest lounge dining room and the covered patio, the garden, built in trampoline and pool. If you need to use the kitchen or laundry facilities this is by arrangement.
As little or as much as the guests prefer. We live on site and get on with our own lives but we care about our guests and will offer suggestions and information if it is required. A recent guest from Brazil was doing research into recycling and we arranged for him to visit the local recycling depot where the garbage pickers take used paper, glass and metal. We regularly arrange for tours of the Apartheid Museum, Soweto, the Lion Park, and we have a special relationship with the Nelson Mandela Foundation and Centre of Memory which is in walking distance and we can arrange in advance for our guests to visit. We will go the extra mile.
I have lived in this neighbourhood for 32 years and love the way it is so peaceful and yet everything we need is close by from Melrose Arch to the James and Ethel Grey Park including 'Acrobranch' treetop adventure experience, the Gautrain, Norwood Mall, churches, synagogues, mosques and a Hindu Temple, and Sandton, Rosebank and the City Centre are all very quick and many are within walking distance.
The Gautrain bus which goes from the Gautrain Rosebank Station to Melrose Arch stops 250m from our gate in Athol Oaklands Road.
We have a climbing wall and abseil rig and use of these facilities can be arranged in advance for a fee. We can arrange entry provided you ask us in advance to the Nelson Mandela Foundation and Centre of Blessed Memory.
We want our guests to feel at home and enjoy themselves, but to be considerate of other guests and the family that live on site as well. And we ask that guests do not take advantage. We are happy to assist with laundry but expect to be reimbursed fairly for the cost of doing so. We request that you smoke outside on the covered patio or in the garden away from non smokers. We have our own pets - two very lovable dogs - and hence we cannot have other pets.
