Champagne Cottage - spacious self-catering accommodation

Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Illovo, Gauteng
Champagne Cottage is a bright, spacious, secure and private self-catering cottage situated in the heart of trendy Greenside. This beautiful area is central to all the business (and shopping) hubs - Joburg and Randburg CBDs, Rosebank, Sandton, Universities - with easy access to the Gautrain and highways. We’re also surrounded by some of the most vibey spots in Joburg for parks, shopping, restaurants, bars and clubs.

Having parked in the secure garage (space for 2 cars) and collected your own gate/garage remote and keys, you'll follow the path down to the completely private entry to Champagne Cottage where you will be greeted with a bottle of South Africa's own 'Champagne' (Methode Champenoise) to set the tone for your stay.

Interaction with guests
Champagne Cottage is ideal for the visitor who wants privacy and independence, but with 24 hour support available from the owners. We live in the main house (family of 3, one child aged 9) and our housekeeper lives in a studio flat with her son on the other side of the house from the cottage. We have 2 golden retrievers who want love and attention all the time - but are kept at the back of the property away from the cottage. 3 cats are free-roaming but very shy so are unlikely to bother you unless you encourage them. We provide many additional services on request, such as transport, airport transfers, meals, tour guiding and advice on the best places to go for shopping, eating, drinking and touring.

The owner Margs went out of her way to ensure our stay was world class. From the complimentary chilled champagne on our arrival to the free wi-fi it was all perfect. We will certainly book to stay here again.

The cottage is exactly as described - bright, light and large for a one bedroom cottage. Definitely sleeps 4 comfortably and the aircon is a godsend in the heat of summer Jozi. The area is gorgeous, trees and birds abound. Shops are close by and...More
