Daniel wrote me an email saying that a Hotel is not where he wanted to stay when he was relocated to Johannesburg from Germany for 4 months?
What did he want? I asked.
“Somewhere to come home, unwind and relax in peace– perhaps cook a meal, have a swim, sit outside with a beer, invite a friend to come over for a barbecue… I want to be close to shops and restaurants, but away from traffic and noise.”
Daniel,” I said, “at Amanzi you can have it all. All of our apartments and cottages have kitchen facilities, we have a large salt water swimming pool, with a fabulous deck for sundowners, and even a braai (barbecue) for you to use. A great Spar with a wide selection of foods to buy is under a kilometre away, Hyde Park Mall just over a kilometre away, Rosebank 4 kilometres away, and you are spoilt for choice with restaurants surrounding us. You can do movies, restaurants, clothes, books and banks within a 2 kilometre radius. You could pop into a Woolworths (there are 2 within 2 km from Amanzi) and grab a frozen meal, or a salad to eat with delicious snacks like smoked snoek pate, chicken sosaties….
Or there’s The Market Place, a deli less than 2 km away, where you can buy home made meals, all kinds of chicken dishes , beef and lamb stews, pasta, (my favourite is the cannelloni) and the ice cream with meringues is addictive….
Not to forget Fournos Bakery for mouth watering deli choices, artisan bread and rolls in town, hot prepared meals, cold meats, cheeses…AND Fisherman’s Deli next door…
I coul d go on” I said, ……..
“I’m sending an email to book into Amanzi right now”…
