  • Gordon was a very responsive and friendly host. He let us check-in earlier to accomodate our schedule which was incredibly helpful. Gordon's place is absolutely stunning; exceeded our expectations. I would certainly recommend his place to other travellers.

  • You can expect Gordon and place to be top-notch! Gordon is very friendly and helpful! You get exactly what’s depicted on Airbnb. The breakfast is so delicious and the staff are always willing to offer assistance with a smile.

  • Gordon's place was very lovely. We felt very welcomed and the description was accurate. All the rooms were decorated wonderfully and were immaculately clean. Breakfast was delicious and the house had modern amenities which made our stay great. I would definitely recommend staying at Gordon's place and I will definitely return there in the future.

  • This was the first airbnb i have ever booked and will definitely do so over and over again. I have read all the reviews available on here and after my visit can verify that it is all true. Firstly Gordon is an amazing host, the word "Super" clearly applies here as he is one of the friendliest , most down to earth people i have come across in the tourism (accomodation) industry . He called me earlier than check in time to let me know i can come earlier, was there to welcome me, came in to check up if everything was okay throughout the stay and assisted when we had a little accident . The guesthouse itself is really stunning, from the road view you would never say that it is the same venue. It looks and feels like a 5 star venue which has everything you could need . It was really clean and tidy and you can see that is well taken care off. I wasn't too fond of the Westdene area when booking and originally wanted something in Sandton/Randburg etc but glad that i did book Thornton Gap Guesthouse. If you are visiting Joburg or just need a place to spend a few days away with mates, colleagues, family or a loved one then this is definitely the place you need to book at. Thank you Gordon and looking forward to booking this place again many times in future.

    A garden cottage in the very central Westdene. Westdene is close to the restaurants and clubs in Melville, Braamfontein, 44 Stanley and Maboneng Precinct. It is even closer to UJ, Wits and Sophiatown. If you like to be close to the buzz but far away enough to enjoy tranquility in the city while reclining at the pool after a busy day, then you'll feel right at home with us.
    You will be staying in the cottage, which is in our backyard right across the pool from us. From a private off street parking (available for you also) you can enter the garden and access the cottage. The main entrance to the cottage leads to a cozy kitchen. From the kitchen you can enter a small lounge which could also be used as the second bedroom (single bed/couch + slide - out single bed). The lounge can sleep one adult or two children as there is an option for two single beds. For four adults it might be tight in space as there is only one bathroom. Through the lounge or from outside you can enter the main bedroom with a comfortable queen bed, shower, basin and toilet (ensuite)
    Westdene is an upcoming neighborhood and has a nice park/dam with play area's for kids, a (free) tennis court a basketbal court and gym equipment. In less than 2 minutes on foot there are also two jazz bars (Sophiatown) and a cafe. It is also only 10 minutes by foot to a supermarket. Westdene is just 5 minutes away(by car or R25 by Uber) from the buzz of Melville and 10 minutes (by car) from funky Braamfontein or Johannesburg zoo. Our house is about 45 minutes form the airport.
  • Marloes and Lisa are amazing hosts. They communicated well before my arrival to ensure that I got there safely. The place is amazing and very private as well. I will definitely be booking again!

    Takunda2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Really good value for money if you are looking to be in the Westdene area, they went out of their way to make sure we had a comfortable stay Host welcomed and showed me around, the cottage is spacious, very comfortable and clean Definitely visiting next time I'm around

    Our quiet, convenient, and comfortable self catering accommodation in Johannesburg has recently been refurbished (August 2019). Whether you are visiting Jozi, our City of Gold, on business or pleasure, or just passing through, Seven Palms provides an escape from stress. Unwind in our contemporary and luxurious self-catering retreat under whispering palm trees on oak-lined Dover Street in the centrally located suburb of Westdene.
    Seven Palms offers free uncapped WiFi and a quiet work space for those on business. Featuring an outdoor swimming pool, a garden, and braai (barbecue) facilities, Seven Palms sleeps up to two with one king-size or two single beds. The fully equipped kitchen includes a microwave and a fridge, and the ensuite bathroom has a bath with shower. Relax in your home-from-home with a braai (barbeque) by the swimming pool or snuggle up indoors with board games & puzzles and take in the latest Netflix movies. Enjoy the vibrant metropolitan buzz of Jozi, City of Gold. But above all, reach out to calm, experience tranquility, and rejuvenate in our comfortable self catering accommodation in Johannesburg.
    Originally part of Braamfontein Farm (est. 1853), Westdene is comfortably nestled between trendy Melville, historic Sophiatown, Westdene Dam, & Melville Koppies Nature Reserve. Popular bohemian tourist destination Melville is home to 7th Street and 27 Boxes (a shopping nucleus built from repurposed shipping containers) with a proliferation of restaurants, bars, cafes, arts & crafts outlets, delis, & bookstores. Nearby 44 on Stanley is a favourite for lazy lunches in mediterranean-styled courtyards as well as upmarket boutiques, lifestyle shops, and a killer chocolatier! Sophiatown was a vibrant multi-racial home to intellectuals, entrepreneurs, progressive politics, and jazz from the 1930’s. It was flattened to the ground by the Apartheid regime from the mid-1950’s & renamed “Triomf”. In 2006 the area regained its original name and today, the Trevor Huddleston Memorial Centre stands as a tribute to Apartheid resistance & offers historic walking tours of the area. Also worth visiting are Johannesburg Botanical Gardens, Gold Reef City Theme Park and Casino, Red Bus City Tours, Origins’ Centre, & the Neighbourhood Goods Market.
  • I really enjoyed the host's hospitality. They are thoughtful and go the extra mile to make sure you feel comfortable and at home. The cottage was lovely, cozy, and modern.

    Mariska2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • What a pleasant stay & experience! Coenraad, the host, is one of the friendliest hosts I've came across in years, also very helpful. Effortless booking & check-in experience, even with our stay involving special arrangements. All the spaces were sparkling clean and neat. Even during loadshedding, you will have peace of mind knowing that there will be hot water, due to implementation of gas geysers. You even get a powerbank which is in the room to charge your phone and other electronics. Highly recommended for short/long trips.

Thanks so much, dear Marian, for this wonderful time spent in my favourite city - your respect for your guests desires is wonderful, your hosting sweet and caring.

Marian's house is very well located in a very quiet area, close to supermarket, restaurant and all the things you need. The house is fully equipped, and the small garden is very nice.

    Alexandre2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay at Marian's place. Fast wifi, great location and a gracious host, highly recommend!

    Tom2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Marian offered a clean, safe, private, comfortable place to stay in Johannesburg. When we arrived, there was a pitcher of cold water for us in the fridge, espresso pods for the morning, and shampoo and conditioner in the shower -- all things we did not expect and greatly appreciated. Marian was immediately available via Airbnb messaging. When my friend and I got carried away shopping in Rosebank (about a 12 minute drive away), Marian was beyond understanding and allowed us to pack up and leave that evening instead of noon as listed! The bed was so comfy, especially after a week of camping in Kruger. I plan to visit Johannesburg again and will definitely be coming back to Marian's listing.

    Alexandra2019-10-19T00:00:00Z

    Family friendly home on quiet residential street near park and a 5 minute Uber/drive from hip Melville with its exciting restaurants, shops and nightlife. Comes with a secure pool, fenced yard, WiFi, open plan living space to relax in when you want a break from exploring Johannesburg. Near both Universities of Johannesburg and Witwatersrand for visiting scholars.
    Look out over the Melville Koppies while eating a fresh avocado from the tree in the front yard. The open plan dining room and kitchen area with underfloor heating provide a great space to spread out and relax in this quiet neighborhood. With a stove, microwave and other modern amenities, you can put together a favorite dish or heat up a quick one, depending on your mood. If you want to relax and watch a DVD on the home entertainment system that is also an option. Three bedrooms with parquet floors and ample closet space will give you somewhere to settle in if you are staying for a bit longer. A large private grassy backyard and pool are a perfect place to relax (or send the kids) on a sunny Johannesburg afternoon. Enjoy it all when you stay here.
    Westdene is a tight-knit community, where neighbours run/walk on a Thursday night and participate in fundraisers and clean up events together. Made up of students, professionals and many struggle veterans, people look out for one another. Go to the Afrikan Freedom Station on 5th Street to hear some local jazz with our locals. Westdene is also a great base for walks in the Melville Koppies to catch a view of the surrounding cityscape. You'll find the Trevor Huddleston Memorial Centre on the border of Westdene and Sofiatown, for those curious about the history of this area. For those looking for food and fun, Melville is one neighbourhood away. There is plenty to explore from this base.
  • Sara is quick to respond and a great host.

The cottage is cosy and comfortable with a lovely ambiance. We loved the private courtyard and being able to pick fresh herbs for cooking. Thank you Luci for all the extra thoughful touches. We so enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to the next one!

  • Never actually stayed at Luci’s place. Due to a misunderstanding on my side, I booked another property after booking. Despite the non-refundable booking, Luci very magnanimously refunded her portion of my payment. Unheard of these days! Airbnb obviously will not, as they do. Thank you Luci’s place. Would love to book with you again.

    Justus2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • I spent a few days here for my birthday and it was such a lovely experience! It had everything I needed and is great for when you just need a break. The location is very convenient, but peaceful. I would definitely recommend a stay here!

  • Giving this stay a 5 out of 5 stars was easy. The house is fantastic: Great open spaces and dinner/breakfast areas. Amazing view of the city. Two pools, fireplace, movie projector, etc etc. The location in Melville is safe and has easy access to the famous 7th street where there are plenty of nice bars and restaurants.

  • Our room was very spacious with sliding doors opening up onto a beautiful private patio. However, the bed is very uncomfortable and there is no mirror in the room to use for doing hair and make-up. Well located, clean, very safe and exceptional quick responses from our host Phillip.

    Marinette2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is one of my greatest recent finds in the Melville vicinity and everything about Phillip's house bowled me over. I was also impressed by how spacious the room I booked in was, which is a great deal and bargain compared to the money I paid. Phillip and his staff were equally gracious and super courteous, making my stay extra comfortable and enjoyable. I look forward to more bookings at this tranquil gem.

  • Great stay in JHB with Marie who was extremely kind and waited for us to arrive late at night. It was great being able to lounge about in the house after we had checked our since our flight which was very late the following evening. Would recommend to anyone needing a safe and homely stay in JHB. Very near to local restaurants and bars too.

    Small and basic, but private and cozy! This cottage is perfect for the single traveler or a couple. It includes a great outdoor space with pool and patio, and is just a 15 minute walk to trendy Melville!
    Self-contained studio garden cottage – with own private entrance and secure parking – ideal for one person or a couple. The cottage has a double bed, a bathroom (shower only), cupboards and a kitchenette (including kitchen sink, kettle, tea and coffee, a bar fridge, a toaster oven and stove top). It also comes with a TV, WiFi and a heater (for the colder months). Just outside the cottage is a sparkling pool and a lovely covered patio area for you to enjoy. Smoking is allowed, but only outside the cottage!
    We are located on a beautiful, quiet, friendly street in Westdene. This part of Westdene is often called Meldene because it straddles both Westdene and Melville. Melville is a vibey and eclectic suburb with lots to see and do. Main Road in Melville is quite “commercial” – with a SPAR (grocery shop), chain restaurants, hardware shop, etc. While 7th Street in Melville offers more of a “village” experience – with a wide range of coffee shops, restaurants, bars, second-hand bookshops, antique shops, boutiques, etc. In the opposite direction, Westdene borders on Sophiatown – also known as Sof'town or Kofifi. Sophiatown was the epicentre of politics, jazz and blues during the 1940s and 1950s, producing some of South Africa's most famous writers, musicians, politicians and artists. Sophiatown was destroyed under apartheid, rebuilt under the name of Triomf, and in 2006 officially returned to its original name. 'Sophiatown The Mix' (located at the Trevor Huddleston Memorial Centre, 71 Toby Road) offers monthly live jazz with world-class musicians, book launches, poetry, exhibitions and a walking tour of this historic suburb. Westdene is a 10-15 minute drive from Rosebank, Greenside, Parkview, Braamfontein and the CBD of Johannesburg. Local tourist attractions include Sophiatown, the Apartheid Museum, Constitution Hill, the Nelson Mandela Bridge, Newtown (the cultural precinct in town), Maboneng (including Arts on Main and the Market on Main), the Emmarentia Botanical Gardens, the Johannesburg Zoo and Zoo Lake. We are also a 5-10 minute drive from Wits University, the University of Johannesburg, the SABC and Media 24.

    Jean-Marie2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay a lot and would come back anytime. The attention to detail with which the cottage was turned into what's now a cozy temporary home for travellers is visible in every corner. Having access to the peaceful garden also is a plus. This beautiful accomodation is great value for money but lacks a bit of privacy due to the missing separation of the bathroom and the bedroom.

    Marie2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • I can highly recommend to stay with Liezl & Helene. The house is very nice and has a large bathroom and a well equipped kitchen. Liezl & Helen are both very kind and responsive. I would definately stay at their airbnb again!

    Our delightful garden cottage is in the leafy suburb of Melville, within walking distance of many restaurants, pubs and shops, but just far away that you will enjoy a wonderful sense of peace and quiet. The cottage features a large bedroom with a double bed, table, TV (Netflix) and couch, a kitchenette and a bathroom with bath and shower. We offer secure off-street parking for one small car. The bedroom opens onto a patio next to the pool. The cottage has a heater and electric blanket.
    Our cottage is ideal for single guests and couples. And because we're so close to the two main universities in Johannesburg, we're a great place for parents visiting kids at varsity and for visiting lecturers and academics. We're a very short distance away from the newly regenerated Braamfontein district with its Neighbourhoods Market on Saturdays as well as lots of art galleries, restaurants and pubs - to complement everything that Melville itself has to offer. If you don't fancy going out for dinner, you can cook your own meals in our kitchenette or you can order from Mr Delivery or Delivery Extreme and get yummy food delivered directly to you. The table and chairs on the outside patio are lovely place to enjoy breakfasts, lunches and dinners in the warmer months. And if you wish you're welcome to use our braai (BBQ) in our tree-lined back garden.
    Melville is a trendy suburb of Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa. It is the location of many restaurants and bars, which are mostly frequented by artists, journalists from the nearby SABC building, and students and lecturers from the nearby Universities of Johannesburg and Witwatersrand. Melville is one of the city's most popular tourist destinations. The suburb is west of the Johannesburg CBD and is a great base from which to experience all the many tourist attractions Johannesburg has to offer. We do recommend that you take the same safety precautions you would take in all other cities around the world.
  • Very clean and well maintained

    Elton2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • You can look forward to perfect and sparkling clean accommodation. John and Debbie are wonderful hosts; they gave us valuable tips for things to do. We can definitely recommend the property.

    Ingrid2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed at John's place for 2 nights and it was a home away from home. Aldo the life in Johannesburg is in Rosebank & Sandton it is a nice place to stay. The place is as discribed a gem in Melville but it you have to use Uber to get to the other places. Remember if you come to be aware of the safety isseus in the adjoining parts like Braamfontein and the city. John makes sure you have a perfect stay!

    Ivo2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

  • John's place is as it's named - a perfect stay near J'burg. Cozy restaurants and cafes very closely located. My arrival was smooth, the place is very clean, beautiful room flooded with sunshine and a private pool seen from the window. I also enjoyed very much the roobois tea they provided. John is very informative about the area and overall traveling in SA. I couldn't recommend more staying with this place.

    Private & tranquil poolside room in the heart of relaxed, trendy suburb of Melville. Perfectly located 1min (walk) from restaurants, bars, cafes, bakery & book stores. Full access to Netflix, Showmax, Google TV and Youtube.
    The poolside room is detached from the main house making it very private. It is located in a very tranquil setting with access to the outdoor lounge where guests can chill, read and swim. With ample closet space, a spacious bathroom and private access.
    Bistros and cafés are always packed, with the night life on full blast of live music and dancing. One of the area’s favourite restaurants is Buzz 9 - boasting its tasty menu and wide assortment of cocktails. With never a shortage of accommodation, and easy travelling routes, Melville is the place to kick back. The lively suburb of Melville, west of Johannesburg, is known for its down to earth meets trendy, coffee shop vibe – and its bustling nightlife. More like a café-style village lined with quirky shops, bistros, restaurants and clubs, peppered with a cultural mix of art and antique dealers, clothing and beading shops, Melville has become famous among locals and visitors as not to be missed for a night out in Gauteng. Melville is a bohemian suburb of Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa. It is the location of many restaurants and bars. Melville has its perks when wanting to stay up to date with what is constantly trending. What was once an old-fashioned suburb, has turned into a colourful neighbourhood. The home of local TV drama, Sewende Laan, also pushes tourists and residents towards the Bamboo shopping centre, jazz venues and the nature reserve, Melville Koppies. Day or night - the energy is alive.

  • What an amazing space. I found myself again here. The hospitality is outstanding!

    Chantel2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing. A must stay. If the studio is free I highly recommend it. The pictures really don’t do it justice - stunning. Pablo’s is a smooth operation, every detail has been thought through from the complimentary teas, coffees, milk and wine! to breakfast at Pablo’s eggs (also fab). The restaurant was closed during my stay (I wasn’t told about this in advance which was a bit disappointing) but I went back to check it out a few days later and the pizza was great. Airbnb responses were a little on the slow side pre-trip but overall the most awesome stay. Highly recommend. You won’t regret staying here!

    Jeveta2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Pablo’s House is maybe the coolest and most well designed place in Joburg. Looking out over melville koppies with multiple sundecks, a Nice bar and restaurant and super service, this is a hidden gem in town. The room is huge and incredibly well designed and equipped. The breakfast at Pablo’s Eggsgobar is super but the staff at Pablo’s House makes your stay truly brilliant! Look no further for a special Jozy night close to bars and restaurants!

  • Just got home after an amazing time at Pablo’s. My husband can’t stop raving about the place. Also, he left his phone on the passageway trying to do a time lapse video capturing the sunrise but the phone fell and someone found it and it was kept safe at reception. Thank you for that! Thanks for everything! You’ll be hearing from us again soon, and we hope to bring friends over to enjoy your beautiful space. The stuff is amazing, from the guard outside to everyone involved in running things. Oh and killer breakfast at Pablo Eggs Go. My tastebuds are happy. Linda & Sechaba

  • What an amazing find this was! You don't even feel like you're in the heart of Johannesburg. Stunning studio apartment with wonderful views overlooking the Melville Koppies. Every amenity was catered for and extremely clean and tidy. The food was amazing, especially the pizza! Which was honestly one of the best I've had in Joburg! Huge Thumbs Up!!

  • Beyond beautiful and great escape from the busy streets of Johannesburg. You feel completely in another location full of scenery, trees, and peace! Highly recommended!

  • This place is above and beyond what a simple “great” review would give it. Although I was only staying one night, I really enjoyed staying at Pablo House, and that was definitely due to the hosts. My only regret is I needed more time, and I nearly bumped my ticket to stay longer. Even better than the amazing modernity and comfort provided by Pablo House, was the friendly vibe that defines your space. Before long, you realize that it’s easy to kick back and relax, even have a glass of wine (or more) over a fireside chat with the owners and other guests. While I could go on and on about how great Pablo House is, other reviews have covered this in excellent detail. Accordingly, I’ll wrap up with this—don’t miss this place, it’s a hidden gem. I’ll definitely be back, and for longer! Thanks again. -Dave

    Simple home with single double size bed in the room. Not very expensive or facinating but clean and acomodating. This house is a perfect spot for anyone wanting a private home with a friend like host. Willing to listen to your days pressure, show you around town, relaxing area where can relax with partner have drinks, listen to soft music ( No music later than 12am no exception )
    My neighbourhood is made of many student accommodation, 2 min walk to shopping centre and kfc. Mostly quiet from 11pm
  • Tanya and Boni are the best hosts, they are funny, friendly, and kind. I can never ask for any better host than Tanya and Boni. The place is 10 stars, the hospitality is 10 stars 😁. I will book again in the future.
