About Sleepy Gecko Guest House Conference and Function Venue in Melville, Gauteng
The Sleepy Gecko Guesthouse is a boutique guesthouse right in the heart of trendy Melville in Johannesburg. Situated at the corner of 7th Street and 3rd Avenue Melville it is right on the doorstep of the best bars and restaurants in Jo’burg. Furthermore, its proximity to SABC, the leading News Agencies, the City of Johannesburg and other vibrant centers such as Rosebank, Sandton and Randburg makes this THE place to stay for local and foreign travelers, whether for Business or Pleasure.
The Guesthouse consists of two houses, one built in the 1930’s as two semi-detached houses and the other a much older (1902) farmhouse. We combined the two semi’s to create a single building with 4 large bedrooms with luxurious en-suite bathrooms and a further two executive suites at the rear of the property which have separate sleeping and lounge areas. The main house also has a lounge/reception room, a dining room and a large verandah overlooking the stunning hot South African garden with its Martini Ledge Swimming Pool where you can sip Cocktails in the afternoon sun. The older house has 3 guestrooms, 2 with shower bathrooms and one with a full bathroom. All rooms have private entrances.
You will also notice throughout the house various paintings and other artworks. These are the work of either the owner or other local artists and almost all of them are for sale should one take your fancy.
