Food scene
5 km from the guesthouse...
They say the only constant is change, and the hustle bustle of Parkhurst's 4th Avenue is no exception. Parkhurst was developed as a suburb in 1904 , but it wasn't until 1938 that a couple of shops sprung up. In the 70's Parkhurst got its first antique store and other followed suit until it was dubbed Antique alley. The first coffee shop opened in the mid 90's and from there we saw yet another transformation. It was one of the first suburban high streets to offer street side Café dinning. As Parkhurst restaurant culture grew some of the antique shops closed down. Today Pankhurst offers a glamorous mix of Couture, interior design and dinning. Whether it's the antique shops, multitude of different high street stores or the plethora of eateries in between, the only thing that stays the same is the dynamism of Parkhurst's main drag. 4th Avenue has an ambience like no other and with South Africa's ever-popular mall culture, this high street offers customers from near and far a safe and refreshing break. Whatever your taste or requirement, Parkhurst's 4th Avenue has something for you!

Nightlife - bars and restaurants
2 km from the guesthouse...
Melville’s 7th Street used to be a mixture of seedy bars and a few, great restaurants muddled between second hand stores and coffee shops, but it’s fast evolving. It’s becoming more retro and populated with a cool new set of restaurants that are hell-bent on making 7th Street a real restaurant destination.

Creative Urban Neighbourhood

Maboneng, a Sotho word meaning “place of light”, is a fitting name for a district that has fast become a centre of creative energy for Johannesburg’s urban artists. With a mix of restaurants, coffee shops, clothing boutiques, art galleries, and retail and studio space, the precinct draws the inner-city public as well as the chic, art-going crowd of the city’s suburbs, bringing life back to this downtown Johannesburg neighbourhood. The area also drives Johannesburg tourism within the local and international tourist markets.

Lifestyle and Nature
2 km from the guesthouse...
The 81-hectare Botanical Garden form one of Johannesburg’s vital green lungs. The land for the gardens was set aside in 1969 – at the time it was a sports field and golf driving range consisting of bare veld and no trees. Now it consists of large, grassy, open spaces scattered with trees and used by runners, picnickers and dog walkers. It hosts the occasional concert season and kite-flying competitions. Visitors enjoy its special gardens – the Shakespeare Garden, the Rose Garden, the Herb Garden, a Hedge Demonstration Garden and the main arboretum, which houses family groupings of plants and trees of South Africa and the rest of the world. The gardens contain an attractive mix of bunched indigenous and exotics surrounded by lawns, overlooking the 7,5-hectare Emmarentia Dam, which dates back to the turn of the century, popular with canoeists and boaters. There is also a tea pergola and a floreum for meetings, shows and exhibitions. The dam is fed by two smaller dams above it, which are home to many aquatic birds. The park is fenced and gates at all the entrances are staffed by security guards.
