Die Agterplaas B&B Description
Die Agterplaas is situated at the foot of the historical Melville Koppies. The view, tranquillity and bird life easily lull visitors into forgetting they're in South Africa's busiest city. Yet the attractions of the Melville boutiques, bookshops, coffee bars and nightclubs are just a stone's throw away. We are approximately 3 kilometres from Johannesburg University, and 7 kilometres from Wits. Die Agterplaas offers 10 ensuite rooms which can be configured as singles, doubles or twins (two beds). There is also a very spacious cottage with self catering facilities that would normally be allocated to guests who are staying for longer periods of time. The cottage and two other units are across the street from the main building on Jannie's premises (proprietor of Die Agterplaas), and the cottage has a delightful private garden. All units have fans, heaters, TV, a bar fridge, ADSL connection and coffee/tea facilities with complimentary juices and cold drinks. Lock-up garages are available at no extra cost. A variety of breakfasts is served in the large dining room with authentic Oregon Pine flooring and pressed steel ceilings. We also offer limited informal conference facilities. Airport transfers at best prices.
