“What phenomenal hosts!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2010

The accomadation is great. The facilities where exactly as described. The hosts where truly fantastic. They offered great advise on how to spend our time and made the trip even more enjoyable. They did everything they could possibly do to help. They couldnt make make England win the world cup, but they did everything else!!!!!!!!!

Great place to stay. Toy the manager is very kind. She was very helpful and responded to all my e-mails and telephone calls immediately. Made all the arrangements for transportation from the airport to Pretoria and return.

The place is great and very safe. Highly recommended!!!

We visited JNB fo the WC final and stayed fo 2 nights at Van's. On arrival we met Toy and her family in the kitchen which also is used as the reception, It really felt like being at home. The accomodation was fantastic, nice and clean. The Staff (Toy and family) very very friendly and helped us finding nice restaurants and drove us around where ever we wanted to go for a small fee. We felt like royals.

We were there for our honeymoon and it was wonderful! The unit was well equipped and luxurious. The Irene Village Mall was 3 kilometers away with a choice of 15 restaurants. We could have a BBQ and enjoyed the pool table daily. The owner spoiled us and made our time special with flowers, chocolates and grape juice. We could not have asked for better!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2010

We stayed for a few nights during the World Cup, and after checking in at their Reception which was filled with overflowing ashtrays and absolutely reeked of cigarette smoke, I wasn't expecting much at all.

The room (which was located in a property down the road) was newly renovated but must have been designed by someone who'd never stayed in a hotel before. We had a king sized bed and it was big and comfortable, so that was great. The major problem with the room was that the roof over the bed was made of glass, with no blinds, so you're awake at the crack of dawn every single morning.

There weren't many power points except on a pop up stick in the kitchen and the blow dryer they provided didn't fit into any of the power points until we used our own transformer in the point.

There was a nice little kitchen which was very handy as there are no cafes or anything nearby (it's in a total residential area) for breakfast, so we could make our own. The bathroom had been done up but both the toilet and sink leaked on the floor.

The room was cleaned well each day whilst we were out, but we didn't see any member of the family or staff at all after check-in.

The prices were extortionate because of the World Cup, but it wasn't just Van's that were gouging and you have to accept that you're going to pay through the nose while a big event is on.

I don't usually write negative reviews, but unfortunately this facility is only average - it's certainly VERY average for the huge prices they were charging over the World Cup.

I travel quite a bit around the country and normally stay in hotels. On this trip however, I decided that I needed to stay in a self catering place. I found the Accommodation at Van's to good and I was not disappointed.

I would recommend this place to anyone.
