The all house with Auckland VIP Room R(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)

Ideal for family. High up on the Auckland Park Ridge is a historic stone house. 110 years old, full of character and natural charm; yet modernized with all the amenities a professional would need to live in a harmonious environment among the sounds of wild birds in a natural indigenous garden. A stone's throw from the best of Johannesburg: easy public transport or drive to Braamfontein and the City Centre. A comfortable walk or ride to the bohemian village of Melville, full of interesting ships, bars and restaurants. Easy walking to either University of Johannesburg (UJ) or the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC).
The hacienda is serviced once a week.
With one ample bedrooms, one baths, a sit-in kitchen and spacious living room, this is ideal for longer stays by a visiting academic or a couple. For shorter stays, a group of friends looking for a comfortable and convenient place to rest would be most welcome. This is an entire self-contained home on a property with a "main house" occupied by the owner who travels a lot. A groundsman and caretaker lives on the property in a completely separate apartment. Safe and secure. There are dogs (very good temperament) on the property with whom guests would have to become friends.

If the photos of the house look too good to be true, trust me - they're not! Oscar is just that great of a photographer! Check out the books on the coffee table and see if you can spot his work. I stayed during the winter so it was starting to get chilly, but I was able to keep warm by the fireplace by using one of the many cozy blankets provided. The house itself was lovely and kept in great condition. There are two bedrooms - one with an en-suite, and another with a bathroom just down the hall. There were spacious closets as well as heaters in each bedroom (again, this helped with staying warm despite the cold weather!). Oscar was great to chat with, and gave lots of "insider" info that enhanced my experience of Johannesburg. He's also a great cook and invited me over for some rice and curry during my stay. Thanks so much for the great introduction to the city!

The perfect AirBnB experience. Dipak and Oscar were great hosts and made us feel at home. We were welcomed with fresh cut flowers and an overflowing fruit bowl, which was a nice touch after a long day of travel. Georgina and Malcolm, the resident dogs, are friendly and playful, and we felt secure knowing they were on site. The property is fully gated with secure parking. Peter, the caretaker, is generally around as well and is very helpful. The home itself is spacious, yet homey, complete with fireplace and washing machine. We were very happy with the location; with Melville and Braamfontein in close proximity, there is plenty to do and so many incredible restaurants to check out. I recommend the Great Eastern Food Bar and the Leopard in Melville. Many thanks for a great stay, Oscar and Dipak. I hope to return for a visit in the near future. P.s. Muchas gracias Oscar for all the great Jozi tips and the enjoyable conversation. We especially loved listening to live jazz at the Orbit, per your suggestion, and viewing your photographs. Such talent!

Our stay at Oscar's place was flawless! The property itself is beautiful and Oscar is incredibly warm and welcoming. When we arrived we were greeted by a koi pond at the front of the guest house and also two friendly dogs, Malcolm and Georgina. Oscar showed us around the place, and gave us some amazing tips on restaurants and bars around Auckland Park and Melville which is a short 3 minute uber ride away. The rooms were incredibly spacious, comfortable, and decorated with stunning art. Oscar told us about its history and artists and we learned so much about Johannesburg through him. I especially enjoyed the garden area and we were welcome to some of the fresh vegetables that grew there. We were able to cook in the well-equipped kitchen and then enjoyed our meals by the warm fireplace in the living room. While in Johannesburg, I worked at Constitution Hill and to my surprise, Oscar's impressive photographs surrounded the property! We enjoyed our stay immensely and would recommend this place to anyone staying short or long term in Johannesburg. Oscar was a talented and kind host who made our time in Johannesburg that much more enjoyable!

I booked Dipak & Oscar/Michelle's place for a three month stay beginning in September and ending in December. As a visiting scholar who was working on writing a book based on previous research I had done in South Africa, I was specifically looking for a place that was serene, would allow me to do work, and had adequate space for myself, a research assistant/friend who I was bringing along for the trip, and the occasional guest or visitor. The place did not disappoint on all accounts. It is peaceful, located next to a park and high on a hill in Auckland Park. Numerous guests remarked on how quiet and serene the place was. The views of surrounding Johannesburg from the place are spectacular. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped. If you desire to simply warm up a left over pizza or cook a full meal you will be able to do so given the fact that the kitchen boasts a four burner stove, a full oven, and a full size fridge. As advertised, the place is near the major universities in Johannesburg (UJ and Wits) and the funky, walkable bohemian enclave of Melville. Braamfontein, Maboneng, and Sandton/Rosebank are reasonable car rides away. There is ample parking if you choose to rent a car, but for getting to and from places Uber is very accessible and for the foreign tourists almost criminally cheap at today's exchange rates. (I will caution though that if you do choose to take Uber, that I often found that placing an address across the street or around the corner and waiting there for pick-up was most efficient. There seems to a be a slight glitch in the Uber app in relationship to the address of the place that often required me to direct the Uber drivers to the place. ) I also took full advantage of the Tuk-Tuks which are 20 Rand per person to and from Melville. During the day, and provided good weather, you can easily walk to the local mall (Campus Square and Melville) and you are also on the BRT Rea Vaya line which I took a few times into Soweto or downtown. I would highly recommend this place to visiting scholars/journalists who need a home base from which to work, desire quiet and serenity, but want to be near (as in a short drive) the hustle and bustle of the city. I also think the place could work great for couples traveling together, a small group of friends, or a family with two small children. The dogs which are on site are extremely friendly and affable, so even if you are not a "dog person," these dogs will win you over. Oscar, the manager of the place was always available for advice and help. Dipak, the owner was often away on business. Peter, the caretaker was always around to help. Rest assured you will be welcomed and well cared for.

Xavier & Lyndon are two professors from Austin Texas. They occupied the heritage stone house for over three months. They were a pleasure to host. The staff of the property found them to be considerate, and engaging guests. I had the pleasure of including them in my own social activities, and my diverse group of friends all remarked on their lively participation in our conversations - which ranged from art and development, to matters of political and historical significance. Oscar attended St Mary’s University in San Antonio, Texas, they had lots in common. They were peaceful and responsible guests. They are welcome back any time. I hope to host more guests like them in future.

It was an absolute pleasure to host Jean Paul and his colleagues at my place. They were friendly, and very interesting artists. Oscar and I were able to socialise a little with them, and we were impressed with the way in which they maintained the house for the few weeks that they were here. Perfect Guests! And we like that they were interested in making a contribution to the development of artists in Johannesburg. You're welcome back anytime.

Profil utilisateur de Oscar ParkviewOscar Parkview est un Superhost.

From Guatemala, I spent my childhood in Central America before moving to the United States at the age of 18 to study engineering. Having worked as an engineer for some years, my passion for photography took me to the University of Rochester, New York, where I studied photography at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Since then I have worked as a professional photographer which has taken me all over the world.

Since my first job as a photographer, at NASA in the US, I have travelled and lived for short periods in Latin America, the Caribbean, Israel, Canada, Mozambique – but since 1994 I have called South Africa home.

I have been lucky – since arriving in southern Africa I have documented a range of events and issues in politics, arts and culture, religion and other fields. I have been privileged to cover some significant political and cultural events in southern Africa, from the first general elections in South Africa in 1994, to Mozambique’s first general elections after the country’s independence from Portugal, to living conditions of Mozambican refugees in Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia and South Africa.

When I am not working, my partner Michelle and I enjoy South African music, road trips around the country, spending time uncovering the vibrancy of this region.

Michelle and I moved to our Parkview home 4 years back and find that living in a peaceful and beautiful area mean we can relax and enjoy the birds, outdoor living – as well as the restaurant and café culture of the area and surrounds. Melville, a popular night spot, is a 20 minute walk from our home.

While renovating our home we spent 3 months living in one of our cottages and through that, we worked out what was needed to make it comfortable and convenient to live in. The renovation process was what prompted us to start offering the cottages to guests – as well as the fact that we thought the peace and quiet of the place would suit others. We have two independent cottages, both of which are renovated to cater for guests’ needs.

Being an Airbnb host suits my personality - I love cooking Latin food for friends or guests, chatting to the people who stay in the cottages and telling guests about this city. Johannesburg is a great place to discover South Africa but many of its charms are hidden – meaning it is fun to give guests an insiders’ guide to the area.

Michelle is South African and grew up in Cape Town before moving to Johannesburg. She has also lived in London and Chicago. She started off as a financial journalist and then made a move to the corporate world. She now works for the Johannesburg Stock Exchange where her portfolio includes investor relations and communications. She is a classically trained musician.
