“This Home had everything needed for a journey into this large city. Everything Ade states in his description is true. I loved it because I was immersed in the culture of the new South Africa. This is no place for someone who wants to be pampered, but rather a jumping off point for an adventure. The people he has maintaining the place are pleasant and attentive (Dyln and Pink). And his recommendation of a tour guide was perfect for me. I like locals who are open and engaged. I got this with Jacob (the tour guide) and the previously mentioned. Food shopping at Woolworths(!) was easy and I really fell in love with Chakalaka. If you ever have been to NYC, this city will be familiar. The new downtown where Mandela Square is is just another new city. I liked the old part better, and Ade's place, and his recommendations were spot on.”
Ade & Prescillia's reviewsAs a host (3)
“So, I must first say that Ade was most accommodating to me and my friends. We wanted to stay downtown instead of the suburbs. And, his penthouse was booked upon our arrival and we really wanted to stay there, however, he allowed us to stay one night in his other place, and move to the penthouse the next day. Ironically, his guest in the penthouse was communicating with my friend on a S.A. FB page prior to arrival. Who knew? LOL. Anyway, Ade through the entire process was very communicative via email. Upon arrival, he has his manager, Dylene handle things locally. So, first, the elevators and hallways were being worked on when we arrived, but the elevators worked...that wasn't an issue for us. Both places, met our expectations and they were lovely spaces ---both of them. We were not disappointed in the least. You would never guess what awaits inside from the exterior of the building. It reminds me sort of like NYC....a hidden gem! And, if you're in the Penthouse, you have to use the rooftop! AMAZING! Thanks, Ade for sharing your space --allowing me and my girlfriends to experience South Africa in style...you too, Dylene!!! You won't be disappointed if you stay here.”
“Ade’s home was perfectly beautiful, accurate and his attention to detail and consideration was evident at every turn. Ade is the most kind, friendly and warmest host we could have asked for. He became flexible to our plans and allowed us to crash at his place for a few hours as we were awaiting our flight from Cape Town and home at the tail end of our trip. He was out of town when we arrived, however he was always a phone call or text message away if we needed something. He sent us ample recommendations of how to spend our time in Jozi and kept us in touch with the building manager who was living on site (and who also helped us carry our baggage up the stairs when the lift gave out!). His apartment is truly in the center of Johannesburg, which is very busy by day and less so in the evening. We had an easy time finding groceries in walking distance, hoping on the double decker tour bus to explore Jozi, and taking Ubers/cabs at night. His place is on the 9th floor and was absolutely beautifully decorated, reflecting his own personal travels and taste with the rooftop overlooking sprawling Johannesburg. His kitchen is stocked with all you could need to make your stay as personal as you need it to be. We felt very safe with the security at his apartment and were able to walk out and around whenever we wanted. I would definitely recommend staying at Ade’s home if you want to be in the city centre. Ade is also well traveled, so he knows a lot about other South African cities in addition to offering insight into excursions to do while in Jozi. Over all I highly recommend Ade’s place for a group. I would definitely stay here next time I travel to Jozi! Thank you Ade for making our time in South Africa memorable. ”
