Johannesburgo, Gauteng, Sudáfrica

Think Brooklyn New York, Downtown LA, Brixton, Shorditch or Hackney in London, 30 years ago. Jo'burg has finally broken free from the chains of its troubled past. And, lead by 'Urban cool' centers such as the CBD, Maboneng and Braamfontein, is now listed amongst the best places to visit, in the Southern Hemisphere (do a web search on recent Johannesburg articles in publications such as Rough Guide, GQ Magazine and The Guardian for a non-biased opinion).

Many don't realise that Johannesburg is also a pan-African cultural centre. The location of this apartment gives much easier access to those aspects of our city, including the sights and sounds that come with being in a developing African city. If you’ve come all the way to Johannesburg looking for the pristine Porsche/Rolex/Jimmy Choo experience of Our city, you're likely to be happier in a different area such as Sandton.

The term CBD is often incorrectly used in reference to the whole of urban Johannesburg. The western side of central Johannesburg, where we are, is quite different to the eastern side, from where much of the news emanates. This is probably because we have the City Hall on the block behind us, the headquarters of two of South Africa’s largest Banks a few blocks to the north and south as well as the country’s largest mining company. So, whilst there is traffic during the day, this part of town is very quiet at night.

I love that my apartment is right in the middle of the regeneration of town. Trendy markets, galleries and underground clubs and bars mix it with the banks and mining house HQs. This is the oldest part of, what is actually a very young city.

With the old bank and mining house HQ's, it was the 'Square Mile' of Southern Africa. In the 1980's and 1990's lots of the businesses started to move out to new suburbs like Sandton and central Jo'burg fell into disrepair. Then in the early 2000's the CBD urban renewal started.

Busy during weekdays and very quiet in the evenings, the area is not as 'manicured' as newer parts of the city, but it's certainly on that trajectory and improving by the day. I'd recommend anybody book one of the many inner-city guided walking tours to get a full appreciation of the city center

The area, alongside Maboneng and Braamfontein are urban regeneration centers of Johannesburg, where youth and arts culture prevail. Anybody looking for a suburban experience of Johannesburg would probably be more comfortable in areas like Sandton and Bryanston.

Commissioner Street is the oldest street, in the oldest part of Johannesburg. It's within a 9 or 10 block area that was originally modeled on neoclassical city centers. It maintains its old New York/City of London look and feel. It's thriving during the week and very quiet at the weekends.

We do not have the glistening shopping malls or high electric fencing of the Northern suburbs. It's has maintained it's more traditional city center layout, with wide sidewalks, street cafes and is bathed in a real creative energy. Whilst the cafes and art galleries have always been around, the growth of the weekend farmers/flea markets, in the surrounding suburbs, over the past five years, makes it a great base for weekend excursions. Neighbourgoods market (Braamfontein), Arts on Main (Maboneng) and 1fox (Fox street) are all 5-10 minutes away.

The building itself overlooks some of Johannesburg's most historic and beautiful buildings.

Built in the 1940's by one of old Johannesburg's foremost architects, Gordon Leith, it is constructed of sandstone in the architectural style of the "Modern Movement Era", but includes many Art Deco features. It is a building preserved under the National Heritage Act, has a state of the art security system backed up by CCTV and a 24hr security guard presence.

We're up-cycling Johannesburg's city center, with luxury apartment renovations. Come and experience something amazing and truly unique, for a few days. Hi, I'm Ade. Born and raised in the UK, I moved to South Africa in 2005 and fell in love with the place! Renovating spaces is my hobby and your booking, via Airbnb, helps pay for me to continue with this hobby. I've had such a positive response from the 4,000+ guests that have stayed in these apartments, over the past 5 years, that I just kept going and am just about to start my fifth project. All of my renovations are made available under the banner African Penthouses. For my day job I work for global NGO that helps financial institutions to improve access to formal financial service for low income women. It means I travel. A lot! At least it did before Covid-19 hit :-( So Airbnb asked me to list 5 things I like. Well, in no particular order (and purposely not mentioning my amazing girlfriend).... Building and home renovation. Have loved creating unique spaces and learning from each project. The fact that these types of building's would be out of my reach, in any major city in Europe or America, makes it that bit more enjoyable. My job. After 20 years in corporate, it feels good to building something special. I have a real passion for music. More playing than making, though I am in the process of learning to play the piano, and was a fairly reasonable DJ in my younger days (does that count as making?). I'm slowly building up my Sonos system (Lego for adults), which is great for filling your home with sounds controlled from the iPad! I'm a Spurs fan. (Tottenham, not San Antonio). Yes there are one or two fans outside of Tottenham. London. The one advantage of having to travel so much for my work, was that I actually got back to London quite often :-)

Durante tu estancia
I live in one of the other penthouses but travel a lot for work, so unlikely to be in town during your stay, however my co-host, Dylne, also lives in the building and will be available to assist with keys handover etc.

I am always available via the Airbnb messaging system or phone.

As I have other apartments in the same building, if this apartment isn't available for the whole time you'd like it, please send me a note. I quite often have guest that will stay in this apartment for a few days and experience penthouse living, then move to one of the other apartments for the rest of their stay.

Guest will have exclusive access to the entire apartment plus wifi, satellite TV, the Jacuzzi and the roof deck. You will also have access to the communal (shared) roof top swimming pool.
