The SpaceTwo medium-sized bedrooms with laminate wood flooring.
The bathroom offers a toilet / basin / shower / no bath, and fittings & fixtures are clean & modern.
Linen & towels provided & changed every 7 days if your stay is long-term.
Our rate is negotiable depending on length of stay & how many people at a time, with a basic guideline rate of R200 per person sharing per night. If you are a single person, then a basic guideline rate of R300 per night. A cleaning fee of R200 will apply to reservations of less than 3 nights.
One bedroom has 2 single beds extra length (put them together and you have a king size bed extra length), and the other offers a private seating area with basic self-catering amenities i.e. kettle, toaster, microwave, crockery, cutlery, etc. We do not currently have a small fridge in the room, so until we get that, you are welcome to keep your perishables in our fridge in the formal kitchen. There is the option to use an inflatable double mattress if you are more than 2 people (until we are able to get a sleeper couch). Both rooms therefore can accommodate up to a maximum of 4 people, with one private bathroom between them.
Access to the bedrooms & bathroom is through the main house, no separate entrance. Please respect our privacy & home, coming home at a decent hour and being considerate of noise levels, etc. Use of the communal space is not part of the offering, however if you have specific needs over & above what is described here, please chat with us, we'll do our best to accommodate you if we can. If you require washing done, you are welcome to use our washing machine in the kitchen, and hang it to dry on our washing line in the garden.
There is a LCD TV & DVD player at your disposal, however no cable / DSTV. We don't subscribe to DSTV / cable TV, however if you want to stay long-term and require DSTV / cable TV, we do have a decoder we could connect for you, and then we'll charge you at the going rate for this service, depending on which package you opt for through MultiChoice.
Unfortunately, no internet WiFi connection available in the area, you need to rely on your 3G modem (we have a signal booster in the house) or hotspot off your mobile phone, this is what we have to do. If you would like to hotspot off our 3G connection, we can discuss it however we have very limited data & it would not be available for high data downloads, just for basic emails, internet banking, etc. If you would like us to arrange a modem & data sim for you, we can do this at the going Vodacom data charges and create a HotSpot for you in the house using our other devices. Let us know what you need to make your stay comfortable, and we'll do our best to accommodate as, how and when we can.
Secure parking on the property for up to 3 vehicles maximum. We park our car in the garage, however if you are desperate for a secure place to park your trailer full of your valuables, or something along those lines, we can discuss giving you the garage for your stay, but only on request and for justifiable reasons please. There is a full time security guard at the entrance to the complex, and the complex itself is very safe and you really don't need to worry about your vehicles / trailers.
Your hosts, Richard & Shanna Heijberg, are 47 yrs & 36 yrs old respectively, no children, no pets. No smoking please, if you really need to, then there is an open field opposite the house you can walk over to.
If we are available to assist further, we will happily do what we can to provide additional guidance and/or services. We would consider providing a basic taxi service within certain parameters agreed beforehand, and/or an airport transfer service.

One of our enjoyable restaurants is "The Diner" at 244 Voortrekker Rd, Krugersdorp, excellent food, great decor, vibe, atmosphere, extensive bar, excellent service, for us one of the better spots to visit in the area... it's not all burger & chips, you'll likely be pleasantly surprised. Check them out on Zomato.
Local enjoyable coffee spot is "Palet" Coffee Shop at the Crouse Art Gallery at 368 Ontdekkers Rd, Roodepoort (looks like nothing from the outside, little treasure inside with it's own shaded patio, garden & water feature, at least you don't have a view of a parking lot like many other coffee shops in the area).
