In the quaint and charming village like suburb of Melville. Walking distance to all the restaurants and bars on 7th Street. All luxuries guests expect. Smart home. Gourmet kitchen. Jet-spa bath/shower. Log fireplace. Luxury 100% cotton bedding. 100Mbs fibre wifi. 42" HDTV including Netflix, Amazon, Chromecast and a PS3. Alexa, your in-room voice command host, will entertain you, and even control the lights. I also offer airport transfers and in-room massage treatment from a local therapist.

Boligen
Only a two street, 3 minute walk, from the popular Melville, 7th Street restaurants and bars. The neighbourhood was recently ranked by Time Out as among the 50 coolest in the world.

Let Alexa, your in-room assistant, entertain you while you tell her to dim the lights, tell you the latest news, weather or when you'd like to wake up in the morning. Cook up a storm in the gourmet kitchen with a full size fridge/freezer, 5 burner gas hob and under-counter, fan assisted oven, sealed concrete counter tops with sink and separate vegetable washing sink, including hand-made, rustic carpentry; kitchen doors made from an abandoned outside shed, to a dining table made from a recycled Oregon Pine door.

The kitchen includes all the cooking equipment you're used to at your own home, capsule coffee machine, kettle, toaster, stick blender, coffee plunger, as well as all the pots, pans, chef knives, glass, porcelain and cutlery.

There's a veggie and herb garden right outside, it's seasonal of course, but take what you need for your meal, there's often more than enough and we wouldn't want it to go to waste.

Or just microwave a ready meal from Woolies, your choice, that's what it's for.

If you want to braai/barbecue you're welcome to use the Weber in the garden.

There's a washing machine and iron/ironing board you can use yourself or pay R100 per load, washed, and folded. R150 per load for washed, ironed and folded.

Start up the Playstation 3 to watch Netflix, Amazon Prime or YouTube, if you want to play a game there's a few included, we've got Call of Duty, FIFA, Minecraft, Grand Theft Auto... If you want to play your own video or internet content to the TV using your laptop or mobile, you're sorted. A Chromecast is connected to the TV through the wifi network, if you don't know the in's and out's of how cool Chromecast is, full instructions are provided in my welcome pack, you can watch any of your own content or whatever you see on your device.

Unlimited fibre based wifi is included free. I did say unlimited, so go mad on the downloads, nobody's going to mind.

The bedroom is equipped with a Kingsize bed, fitted with 100% cotton bedding, heated under-blankets, clock radio/USB charger, hair dryer, wall safe, floor fan, oil heater, HDTV and large double cupboard.


A traditional wood burning fireplace provides glorious heat and crackle in the cold winter months.


The bathroom features a luxurious jet-spa bath and shower using eco friendly instant heat, gas radiation.


Campus Square and the newer Rand Steam Shopping Centre are both a few minutes drive away where you can stock up on supplies. The sprawling Rosebank Mall (where you can buy the worlds' goods) is 15 minutes drive away.

In room massage offered for an extra charge by a local massage therapist, Zama Cele of paradise Beauty Spa. Best to book before you come, but you can try on the night if she's available. Her last appointments are 10PM for the massage to end at 11PM. Details here: https://g.page/paradise_beautyspa and contact/WhatsApp: +27 81 021 3982

I can add her charge to your AirBnb bill if you don't have cash on you.

You'll be in with the know, like a local.

Gæsteadgang
Access to your own 2 parking spaces, behind secure motorised gate and electric fenced 6 foot wall. The cottage is freestanding in the back garden and it's all for you, no sharing with other guests. Use the back garden and barbecue anytime you like.

Andre ting, der er værd at bemærke
1 dog on the property and 3 cats.

Please note that none of the animals are allowed into the cottage. I know it's tempting to want to invite them in but please consider other guests who may have allergies.

Alexa, otherwise known as the Amazon Echo dot is AI (Artificial Intelligence). As such your voice commands are uploaded via wifi to Amazon's server, interpreted and fed back to Alexa so she may respond appropriately.

Amazon claims that Alexa is only listening to you after you use the wake word and her blue ring lights up. If you are uncomfortable using AI technology, simply unplug the unit. It has no battery and will be rendered entirely useless. Robots 0 - Humans 1 :-)

I work in foreign TV news covering the African continent. When I'm not away I love spending time with my two sons or watching live music around Johannesburg. I love cooking and good food.
Under dit ophold
Of course, I live on the property and can tell you all about the local restaurants and bars which are just two streets away. Gogo, the house cleaner, lives on the property and is always willing to help too.

Just ask.

But if you don't, we'll assume that you're fine and will leave you well alone during your stay. Please don't be offended, this only means we are respecting your privacy.

As a foreign news journalist I've travelled Africa for the last 21 years, at the drop of a hat, so if there's anything you need to know about where you're coming to, or where you may be headed next in Africa, just ask, I'll share my latest knowledge and contacts with you, before you arrive, or while you're here, headed off to your next place.
