It is close to the 4th Avenue restaurant and shopping district, Gautrain, Sandton and Rosebank. Light, airy and modern, it is perfect for business travellers and tourists, with 100 % cotton bedding, a fully equipped kitchen, free 50 MBS WiFi , an honesty bar with snacks and drinks, premium satellite TV and more. The property is shared with a tenanted cottage.

The space
House @54 is a modern self-contained home, two blocks away from the bustling restaurants and shops of 4th Avenue. The fully self-contained space, which has covered off-street parking, comprises 3 spacious bedrooms, two of which are en-suite. The open plan lounge dining room and covered patio provide ample space for resting, socialising or meetings. A Weber compact kettle barbeque is available for use, the fully equipped kitchen is stocked with all the essentials and more. The house is completely secure; the boundary walls have electric fencing, and private security is on call. To make your stay as comfortable as possible we provide 100% cotton percale bedding, a Nespresso coffee machine with a selection of coffee pods, a selection of teas, bathroom products, a premium satellite TV package, DVD player and free Wifi (fibre connection, 50 mbs). For your convenience cereals, milk, fruit juice and bread are provided for breakfast and, through an honesty bar system, a range of “help-your-self” snacks and drinks are available on request. Please let us know if you have any specific dietary preferences.
For the winter months, there are heaters, electric blankets and hot water bottles to keep you warm and cozy.
On advance request, we can provide printing and scanning facilities, and a data projector and screen. If you have an infant travelling with you, we are happy to make a travelling cot and high chair available.
A large outdoor patio space above the garage provides a great space to enjoy Johannesburg’s fantastic weather and see above the tree line! Note that this space is shared by a tenants in the cottage on the property.
We do a thorough clean after each guest has checked out, but do not offer a daily cleaning service unless by special arrangement. If you are staying for 7 days or more, we will make arrangements at your convenience to clean and change the linen and towels. Please let us know what your preferences are. There is a washing machine, dryer and washing line on the premises that you are welcome to use. An iron and ironing board are available.
In the case of power outages or load shedding, which hopefully will not interrupt your stay, we have alternate lighting and gas facilities available for cooking and heating.
Please note:
• The house has a metal roof, and as the temperature drops in the evening, you may hear “ticking” sounds as it cools down.
• One of the benefits of modern design is great light and air circulation so there are lots of windows in the house. If you are particularly light sensitive or your sleeping patterns are interrupted by sunlight, these windows may bother you.
• During heavy rain and the periodic hail storms that the city does experience it can get quite loud! Also, birds landing on the roof are noisy. Embrace it as part of the soundtrack to life in Johannesburg!
• When small children come to stay we try and “childproof” the house as best as possible but please move anything you need to for peace of mind!

Guest access
You have access to the property via a key pad and an individualised pin code which we will provide to you before check in. There is one designated parking space for House guests and one for the cottage. The access to the garden is through a wooden door on the left hand side of the garage; the light switch for the garage is on the right hand side of this door.

Other things to note
The weather in Johannesburg is generally temperate, but in the height of summer the temperatures can rise to above 30 °C and in winter can drop to below 10 °C especially in the evenings. Please bring along some warm clothes!
Some tips:
• Please contact us for directions and a status update on the best route.
• It gets pretty busy in Parkhurst on the weekends, so make sure to order your meal for takeout or delivery on time.
• Parkhurst is a very safe suburb, but like any large city, keep your belongings close and be aware of your surroundings.

Parkhurst is a thriving residential suburb in the north of Johannesburg with a busy central street, 4th Avenue, where most of the restaurants and shops can be found. There is something for everyone in Parkhurst, a neighbourhood pub (the Jolly Roger), a wonderful ice cream shop, a good liquor store, a wide range of restaurants, furniture, clothing and gift stores, Pilates studios and gyms, beauty salons, a pharmacy and services such as doctors, laundries and others. Please see our directory for a better sense of what is available. Just a block away from House @ 54 there is small convenience store which sells the basics; bread, milk, etc. and just a little further on there is the Parkhurst Recreation Centre which has a swimming pool that is open in the summer months and a range of programmes every day.
While is there no supermarket in Parkhurst, there are a Pick n Pay and a Woolworths food store very close by, a 6-minute drive, at the Terrace Shopping Centre in Victory Park. There is also a Virgin Active gym, Dischem pharmacy and Postnet postal service at this centre. There is a smaller Woolworths Food in Greenside, a 7-minute drive away.
There is a fresh food market, one of the many in Johannesburg, at Pirates Club every Sunday morning which has a wide selection of goodies on sale.
There is a very active mountain biking route along the Braamfontein Spruit of up to 50 km. “The Spruit” as it is known, is an easy to intermediate ride. There is more information on the route at www.mtbroutes/braamfontein-spruit-closest-citytown-emmarentia.
Verity Park is the Parkhurst dog walking park, so if you want to meet the local canine population, this park is where you need to see and be seen! The Johannesburg Botanical Gardens, incorporating Emmarentia Dam, is less than 10 minutes’ drive away, and Delta Park, which has incredible views over the city is about 6 minutes’ drive from Parkhurst. Delta Park has a lovely area for children to play with swings and jungle gyms. The Green Room at the Pirates Bowls Club in Greenside has a play area and on the weekends a jumping castle if you are looking for a child friendly venue.

I love reading; going to the theatre; beautiful things and places; playing word games and doing puzzles (on apps, of course); good food; wine (even though I can't drink it); and cooking (for other people, when there is no time pressure). I have discovered that cleaning and making beds is is great exercise and quite therapeutic, even though not all of it is fun ;-) I love my city, and would like other people to see its beauty the way I do. I think the world is going mad and that we need to do all we can to stop this. I just wish I knew how. Maybe offering a space that grants a little respite is the answer...
