Overview

Life on 3rd is a stylish guesthouse located in a leafy and tranquil corner of the cosmopolitan village of Melville in the heart of the Johannesburg Metropolitan area, South Africa. It is a sophisticated getaway from the bustle of the city and a memorable place to stay for the discerning business or leisure traveller.

When staying at Life on 3rd guests can expect uniquely decorated rooms, complimented by a contemporary chic ambiance of old meets new. Offering 14 comfortable rooms, almost any need can be accommodated, whether it be single travellers, couples, families or groups alike.



Life on 3rd boasts a wooden decked courtyard with casual outdoor seating which offers guest the opportunity to soak up the African sun or take refuge under the umbrellas whilst enjoying the peaceful atmosphere. After a long day of business or sight seeing put your feet up and relax in the lounge, separate to the main house, it is also the ideal venue for informal meetings, workshops and functions.

The rooms are decorated in a fresh understated style and guests can choose from five different room types either in the main house or with private entrances.

All rooms are equipped with the following:

NOTE: If a search was made without stipulating the month of occupation the rate shown on the search results page is for the lowest cost month and the least expensive room. Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.
