My stay at Serendipity Cottage was perfect. I had all I needed.

The cottage is very spacious, spotlessly clean, and quiet. My host was very friendly and accommodating.

Sonder twyfel een van die mees aangename gastehuise in Gauteng.

Ser·en·dip·i·ty (sĕr′ən-dĭp′ĭ-tē). The faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident. Serendipity Cottage doen sy naam gestand want dit was beslis die geval tydens my onlangse besoek aan Gauteng. Wat 'n gelukkige ontdekking het dit geblyk te wees. Dit is sonder twyfel een van die aangenaamste gastehuise in Gauteng. Die bespreking via Lekkeslaap was foutloos, en Andrew is die perfekte gasheer wat verseker dat alles in plek is. Jou "huis van die huis af" (die cliché is 'n raak beskrywing) is 'n aparte kothuis in 'n pragtige, goedversorgde tuin met volwasse bome. Dit het 'n ruim sitkamer met knus meubels en 'n groot skerm TV met DStv. Die kombuis is goed toegerus, het 'n groot mikrogolfoond, en het selfs 'n induksiestoof as jy lus is om self te kook. Alles is onberispelik skoon, insluitend die baie gemaklike groot formaat bed en 'n verskeidenheid kussings. Om die dag te begin na 'n wonderlike stort in 'n ruim badkamer, maak dit makliker om die groot stad in die gesig te staar, veral as jy van 'n klein dorpie af kom, soos ek. Alhoewel veiligheid 'n hoë prioriteit is vir besoekers aan Gauteng, kan hulle gerus wees dat hierdie plek so veilig is as wat dit kan wees. Dit is in 'n afgesperde woonbuurt geleë met al die gewone veiligheidskenmerke. Beurtkrag is nie 'n probleem nie. Die kothuis word bedien met 'n sonkrag- en UPS-stelsel wat daarvoor sorg dat gaste onbewus is van daardie nare verduisterings. ’n Komplimentêre en sterk Wi-Fi-sein verbind jou met die mal wêreld daar buite, hoewel die rustigheid van die area jou laat wens dit was nie nodig nie. En die beste van alles, dit is bekostigbaar.

Without a doubt one of the most pleasant guesthouses in Gauteng.

Ser·en·dip·i·ty (sĕr′ən-dĭp′ĭ-tē). The faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident. Serendipity Cottage lives up to its name as this was certainly the case during my recent visit to Gauteng. What a happy discovery it turned out to be. This is without a doubt one of the nicest guesthouses in Gauteng. The booking via Lekeslaap was flawless, and Andrew is the perfect host ensuring everything is in place. Your "home away from home" (the cliché is an apt description) is a separate cottage in a beautiful, well-tended garden with mature trees. It has a spacious living room with cozy furniture and a large screen TV with DStv. The kitchen is well equipped, has a large microwave oven, and even has an induction stove if you feel like cooking yourself. Everything is impeccably clean, including the very comfortable king size bed and a variety of pillows. Starting the day after a great shower in a spacious bathroom makes it easier to face the big city, especially if you come from a small town, like me. Although safety is a high priority for visitors to Gauteng, they can rest assured that this place is as safe as it can be. It is located in a gated community with all the usual safety features. Load capacity is not a problem. The cottage is served with a solar power and UPS system which ensures that guests are unaware of those nasty blackouts. A complimentary and strong Wi-Fi signal connects you to the crazy world out there, although the tranquility of the area makes you wish it wasn't necessary. And best of all, it's affordable.

Quiet area and had all we needed. Good shower, spacious bed, nice private garden area for a little braai. Good WiFi signal, easy access. Good value for money. Wonderful lady cleaner. Would definitely recommend this accommodation.

Fantasties.

Kothuis is baie goed geleë met eie ingang en tuin. Baie gerieflik, skoon, netjies, modern en beskik oor al die geriewe om jou verblyf aangenaam te maak. Die gasheer is ongelooflik behulpsaam. Andrew kan nie genoeg doen om jou verblyf aangenaam te maak nie. Die kothuis word gediens wanneer dit die gaste pas. Dit is voorwaar "Home from Home", sal beslis weer in Serendipity Cottage kom bly. Beslis 6 ster-akkommodasie.

Cottage is very well located with its own entrance and garden. Very comfortable, clean, tidy, modern and has all the facilities to make your stay pleasant. The host is incredibly helpful. Andrew can't do enough to make your stay enjoyable. The cottage is serviced when it suits the guests. This is truly "Home from Home", will definitely stay in Serendipity Cottage again. Definitely 6 star accommodation.

Most enjoyable and relaxing stay.

I was welcomed by the owner, Andrew, who showed me around the well maintained cottage with beautiful finishings, surrounded by a lovey garden. It was well equipped and spacious - close to shopping malls. I enjoyed my stay and will definitely stay there again and recommend it to my family and friends.

Die beste gastehuis in Johannesburg! Skoon, veilig, privaat met alles wat jy nodig het. Jy hoef nie verder te soek nie.

Andrew het my dadelik tuis laat voel. Die plek is pragtig en baie skoon. Jou eie ingang tot die perseel beteken dat jy heeltemal privaat en veilig is. Alles binne is van die beste gehalte en daar is selfs 'n gimnasium om te gebruik. Ek sal vir seker weer terugkom! Thanks Andrew.

Al ons verwagtinge is oortref in hierdie pragtige, stil en luukse eenheid waar die gasheer uit sy pad gegaan het om na ons te kyk!

Ons het heerlik gebly by Serendipity Cottage. Die wonderlike stilte in die middel van Douglasdale was 'n bonus. Andrew is 'n bedagsame gasheer en was altyd beskikbaar wanneer ons iets wou weet. 'n Smaakvolle inligtingsboekie het ons al die inligting gegee wat ons nodig gehad het i.v.m. uitboek, sekuriteit, restaurante, Uber, aflewerings, kombuistoerusting en WiFi. Die cottage is pragtig gemeubileer en linne en handdoeke van luukse gehalte. Die kombuisie het alles wat nodig is en daar is uitstaande restaurante in die nabye omgewing. Ons sal beslis weer daar oorbly!

A tasteful information booklet gave us all the information we needed regarding check-out, security, restaurants, Uber, deliveries, kitchen equipment and WiFi. The cottage is beautifully furnished and luxury quality linen and towels. The kitchenette has everything you need and there are excellent restaurants in the nearby area. We will definitely stay there again!
