“We stayed with Helen and Darryl when we visited Johannesburg for a family wedding. As well as being fantastically located for proximity to our family, the house was an absolute delight. We could have spent hours looking at the artwork alone. Helen and Darryl's home had everything we needed for our stay, and they were wonderfully helpful and welcoming. The Melville restaurant scene is very buzzy. Unfortunately we didn't have time to visit many of the restaurants, but the meal we had at the local breakfast bar was excellent. We hope to be able to stay at Helen and Darryl's house again when we visit Johannesburg.”
Where is it?
Our neighbourhood is cosmopolitian and attracts people from all walks of life - especially creative types as well as students from the nearby university. It is full of character and the main street (which is a block away from our house) has some fantastic restaurants, music venues, bars and secondhand shops. There is also a shopping centre with grocery shops and banking facilities which is easily accessible.
We are within walking distance of the university as well as the new Rea Vaya bus route system. The main street in Melville with restaurants and funky little shops is a block away as well as a shopping centre for grocery shopping. We are a 10 minute drive from the Gautrain station.
