During my summer holiday I decided to visit the relatively modern town which has experienced much growth in the last decade in Midrand. Every summer I take tours in different cities and town for three months. This time around I chose to stay in Midrand because I read a lot of articles about this growing area. I have been bred and raised all my life in Bloemfontein. I have always loved to tour around South Africa.
Most people need a place to stay while visiting a new city, most of them automatically start considering a hotel. For a stay longer than a few days, renting a property for a short lease is often cheaper than hotels, where the nightly cost quickly adds up. At a hotel, you often have to pay extra for benefits such as internet or appliances. In addition to being fully furnished, most rentals come with these benefits included. My first preference is always a furnished apartment. I searched around the internet and found a beautiful bachelor apartment on OLX, to let by Feel-at-Home Properties.
This fully furnished bachelor apartment is located in Hilltop Lofts Security Complex in Carlswald Midrand, Gauteng, South Africa. The property offers an open plan kitchen with beautiful modern fitted cupboards that I just had to bring along my own food staffs. One bathroom and a bachelor bedroom. It also has a covered patio and one covered parking. Hilltop Lofts complex has the best security team which offers 24-hour access control with security guards. A clubhouse with a swimming pool and braai facilities for entertainment. When I felt to stay around at home, I would visit the swimming area since that was my favourite sport from primary school.
This apartment is also located near schools such as Building Blocks Baby Centre & Nursery School, Jingle Bells Pre-School, Midrand Primary, Halfway House Primary, Jubilate Primary School, Midrand High School, Wendywood High School. As well as, Varsity College Midrand and Richfield Graduate Institute of Technology.
The Complex is conveniently located right across the street from Carlswald Shopping Center in Midrand. There are shopping centres close to Hilltop Lofts that are Carlswald Lifestyle Shopping Centre, San Ridge Square, Carlswald Centre, Bytes Conference Centre. I would just drive a few minutes if I feel like I wanted to grab something. There are also hospitals near Hilltop Lofts that include Netcare Carlswald Pharmacy and Medi-Clinic Hospitals.
Many businesses have relocated there due to its proximity to good highway links and its location. Suburbs that are generally regarded as being in Midrand Country View, Carlswald, Crowthorne, Glen Austin, Halfway House, Halfway Gardens, Vorna Valley, Noordwyk, Randjesfontein.
I loved to visit the largest conference centre in South Africa, located in Midrand currently known as Gallagher Estate. Built on the former site of Laerskool / Primary School Halfway House. I have mingled with people of different cultures and diversities which was a fun thing to do.
