Escape to urban sanctuary:
Our bespoke off-the grid serviced apartments 

Enjoy peace of mind living on a sustainable, small eco estate in Johannesburg, where the worries of load shedding and water cuts are non-existent. Our fully serviced and furnished accommodations, available for medium or long-term rental, offer a lock-up and go lifestyle. Nestled safely in the boomed-off suburb of Darrenwood, just moments away from the vibrant neighbourhoods of Linden and Cresta Shopping Centre, our unique chalets provide a bush-lodge-feel in the heart of the city.


These are not your ordinary apartments or garden cottages; they represent a distinctive city escape into off-the-grid, farm-like living. On the grounds of one of Johannesburg's earliest farms, the property features not only a private residence - the original farmhouse - but also four distinctive rental chalets. These chalets, secluded by lush indigenous gardens and each boasting its own wooden deck, offer a harmonious blend of tranquility and urban accessibility.


Inside, the traditionally thatched apartments exude modern, tasteful African elegance. Featuring 21st-century furnishings and amenities, these superbly appointed spaces invite you to unwind in a tranquil and beautifully landscaped garden setting. Embrace the harmony of nature and urban living at our serene oasis in the heart of Johannesburg.
