There are four of us living at home, myself Kim a mom of 3, Ian my hubby, Dane our 23 year old son, and Aidan our 10 year old son. We live in the leafy suburb of Linden in Johannesburg, which is filled with restaurants and shops, but our home is on a very quiet residential street, with 24/7 street guarding. We have dogs and cats and chickens and parrots, and live a Vegan lifestyle, which includes saving water with laundry, and doing recycling of household waste. We would love to have you come and stay with us here. We have 3 spaces here to have guests stay in, and all are fairly self-contained. We speak English at home, and can get along fine in Afrikaans too. We also have other peoples dogs come and stay over with us, so if you don't love animals, this may not be for you xx

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
