I applied at Pearson Institute of Higher Education in Midrand to study Commerce and Law and Humanities and I was not able to get accommodation on the campus since it was already full. I was only able to get a place to study for my degree. My dad then suggested on renting a bachelor unfurnished apartment because it is cheaper than the unfurnished one.
One of the first thing they were considering was an apartment that is located close to my school so that I do not have to drive for long hours to school. security measures of the apartment they will find since I was the only girl in a family of two boys. They wanted an apartment that is crime free and safely secured. Since I had asthma problems since my primary the apartment, I would stay was supposed to be close to hospitals because I had regular asthma attacks.
My dad searched on the internet to look for an apartment where I could stay. He found an apartment on Gumtree that is an unfurnished bachelor apartment that was to let by Feel-at-Home Properties. My dad went to view the place and when he came back, he told me I found a very beautiful apartment for you to stay during your studies. I believed my dad because he would never lie to me.
I packed my clothes ready to leave to my new place. My family accompanied me to the apartment, which is located in Hilltop Lofts, Carlswald in Midrand. Hilltop Lofts is situated just off the N1 Highway and across the Carlswald Lifestyle Shopping Centre. It is surrounded by areas such as Halfway Gardens and Waterval. Hilltop lofts is a 24-hour security estate with guards working 247 and the whole complex is fully walled with electric fence.
We left our car at the visitor’s car parking. The apartment I was staying is Hilltop number 40 which is a beautiful bachelor apartment with one bathroom. The unit has built in cupboards both in the kitchen and bedroom. A private balcony that showed a very beautiful scenic view. It has one covered parking as well. The complex has a communal braai area, swimming pool and a clubhouse. A lot of young couples stay in the complex, students and families of different cultures.
We went for shopping at Carlswald Lifestyle Shopping Centre to buy the things that I wanted to use. The were close hospitals such as Netcare Carlswald Pharmacy and Medi-Clinic Hospitals. The area is easily accessible to main roads such as New Road, Lever Road, Harry Galaun Drive, the N1 and Pretoria Main Road. It also located near schools and other universities. It is well accessible to major amenities.
My dad took me around the area to see other nearby shops such as San Ridge Square, Carlswald Centre and I was glad to know of this beautiful area. I had lot of things that I could do on my free time and would never feel lonely.
