Sister Staycation at Pablo House

For the past few months my sister and I have rarely had a chance to spend some downtime together. Yes, we speak over the phone and text every day but it’s never enough. For someone, who’s your other half, some quality time is always needed.  So imagine, our excitement when we found out we could have a mini sister staycation at Pablo House in Johannesburg, Melville.
About Pablo House
Pablo House is a boutique guesthouse situated at the highest point in Melville, where you can enjoy breath-taking views across greater Johannesburg. The guesthouse is  a hidden gem Joburgers can visit when they need peace of mind or an escape from the busy city.
Upon arrival we were welcomed by Jamy-lee Brophy ( general manager) who showed us to our suite and offered us welcome drinks.  On our way to the suite, I fell in love with the concept of a traditional guesthouse that  incorporated an element of luxury and modernity.  The boutique guesthouse is tastefully decorated with soft white deco and touches of emerald green and mustard.  The accommodation offers a sun terrace, outdoor pool and a bar. One of the things that stood out for me is the unique furniture in the living room and the South African art collection the owners have hand selected over the years.

About our Suite
The one thing we wanted to do on this staycation was to unwind and we did just that! After checking in and obviously taking a few instagram shots, we settled in and watched some Netflix in our comfy bed.  Each room has a king sized bed, ensuite washrooms (although they’re small and have minimal privacy), nespresso machines, high speed wifi and netlfix. Our room was situated in the main house with a shared terrace, offering stunning views of Johannesburg.

Pablo house is perfectly situated near several shopping centres, so we decided to get dinner around the area. There's also an option of dining out at the guesthouse or ordering on uber eats.

The following morning we enjoyed a cup of coffee from the nespresso machine in our room and headed out to the pool area and the sun terrace. If you like myself prefer tea over coffee, the staff members will gladly prepare a fresh cup for you.

About Breakfast 
We were gifted with a voucher to Pablo Eggs-Go-bar-a renowned hipster hangout just 1km down the road. The name of the restaurant is a play on words deriving from ‘Pablo Ecsobar’. 
 Breakfast is served  from 6:30 am for the early risers through to 4 pm for people like me who prefer to laze around. The menu is versatile and has unique dishes.

Our stay at Pablo house was exactly what we needed to round off the year. The perfect intimate escape and a refreshing getaway to bond with your loved one.

We left feeling rejuvenated and Pablo House was certainly a home away from home for my sister and I!
