This is a Garden Apartment attached to the house at 126 Kelvin Drive, Morningside Manor (opposite Gary Avenue between Rivonia Road and Bowling Ave), Sandton.  It can be described as an attached cottage, a self-contained apartment, home-office, or a garden flat.  Either way, it is bigger than the average one-bedroom Sandton townhouse!  The accommodation is close to major taxi routes, the Sunninghill bus route, two Gautrain bus routes, and the future Rivonia Road BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) route.  Your accommodation would be in an up-market area of Johannesburg, close to the Rivonia and Woodmead office hubs and just a short trip from the Sandton CBD.

The flat has one large bedroom with en suite bathroom, big fully-equipped kitchen (microwave too!), open-plan split-level lounge and dining room, patio, and covered double carport.  It is fully furnished and serviced including laundry.  The apartment has its own garden and patio with table, umbrella and four chairs with cushions.  There is shared use of the main gardens, fish pond and thatched lapa (entertainment area).  The property is particularly secure itself, and located in one of the safest parts of Johannesburg.

What’s Included?  Everything you need for a long and comfortable stay: Rates, electricity, water, gas, WiFi (free for reasonable use), washing and ironing twice a week, daily cleaning on weekdays, bed linen, towels, toilet paper, parking, burglar alarm system and armed response.

Optional Extras available by arrangement:  Breakfasts, dinners, internet access, faxing, scanning and printing facilities.  We can provide an extra single bed for tenants who prefer to sleep separately.  The rent includes use of the carport; parking in the closed garage is an extra R500/month.

Daily Rate: For periods less than a few months we may be willing to negotiate a daily rate around R500/day, paid weekly in advance.  Please ask.
