Guest Reviews

We loved our stay. It’s like an oasis of calm in the middle of busy Joburg. When we return we’d only stay there. We felt safe and secure and so well looked after.

Peaceful with a beautiful view, beautiful garden and pool view, and the apartment is comfortable and spacious. The hospitality was splendid, it felt like home and we enjoyed our stay.

A clean, cosy, and wonderful living space, in a peaceful environment. The hosts are  friendly, open and welcoming. I really enjoyed my stay.

Hosts offered local insights, communicated quickly & clearly and shared a space more beautiful in person than it is in pictures. Amazing.

Neighbourhood & Surrounds

Visitors’ Guide

The Neighbourhood

Originally part of Braamfontein Farm (est. 1853), Westdene is comfortably nestled between trendy Melville, historic Sophiatown, the Westdene Dam, and the Melville Koppies Nature Reserve.

Trendy Melville – 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!

Historic Sophiatown – 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.

Nearby Attractions – Attractions outside the immediate area worth visiting include the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens, Gold Reef City Theme Park and Casino, the Red Bus City Tours, the Apartheid Museum, the Origins’ Centre, & the Neighbourhood Goods Market.
