has been called a Boutique Style hotel with a touch of charm and elegance but is more like a home away from home.
Stylish and intimate accommodation that wins the praise of many of our guests. It has all the amenities that you need.
It is ideal for the discerning business traveler or holiday maker. Peace and tranquility abound in a quiet suburb of Sandton. Lots of bird life in the trees. The occasional Genet strolls by.
It is owner managed so you are assured of a personal touch and attention to detail.
A Jack Russell (Biscuit) lives here and she helps to give it that homely ambiance. She will be your best friend before you leave as long as you stroke her head and neck and give her a back rub. Eish! That is so cool for her.
We are very close to the Marlboro Gautrain Station as well as Sandton Station. We offer to collect you from either one of these stations. The O.R. Tambo Airport is 30 minutes away and Lanseria Airport about 45 minutes. We can arrange for a shuttle to collect you if necessary and if you are not happy to use the train service which runs up and down every 20 minutes.

Health & Climate:
Johannesburg has the best weather all year round. Winter days are warm, but mornings and nights are cold. Every precaution is taken to make sure you are warm and comfortable.
The Summer days are just beautiful when the sky is blue and the sun is shining. Rainy season for Johannesburg is from September until end of March. The days are very hot when not overcast or raining.
If you are running a fever and have any health issues we would prefer that you do not visit us during that time as this can impact on the other guests and/or owner and staff. We do not want anyone to be sick whilst they are visiting us.
