This space is definitely something special and Lisa is a courteous, professional host who knows how to add those little touches that make it feel like a home away from home. I'll definitely be back!

The best 1br granny flat in Melville. I've seen them all :) I just wish it was available more often.

Lisa's cottage was a perfect, relaxing spot to enjoy several days in Johannesburg. While away from some of the main sights of the city, it is very easy to get around from this location and also has plenty of restaurants and bars within short walking distance. The cottage itself was clean, modern, and comfortable with all of the amenities a road-weary traveler needs (including some complimentary welcome snacks). I highly recommend Lisa's property for your next stay in Jo'burg!

I work from home so I'm here most of the time. Myself or anyone working for me will be more than happy to assist with anything or just to have a chat.
