The accommodation is great, for a family of four (two teenage girls included), we managed comfortably with one room and sleeper couch and self catering amenities. The location is a walking distance to restaurants and a Woolworth supermarket. The neighborhood felt very safe!

Come and spend a night with us, in one of our three comfortable and stylishly furnished self-contained units, each with their own private entrance. We're situated in a secure and relaxed environment, in the More tree-lined and sought after up-market suburb of Parktown North - one of the "Parks" in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg. The garden cottage opens out onto an attractive and tranquil indigenous garden with a large pool. The apartment opens out onto a spacious first floor balcony. Come and spend a night, or more, with us. We now can also offer a budget unit. Less
