A great find!

I had to spend the night in johannesburg after landing late evening from NY, to catch an early morning flight the next morning. I was looking for a very reasonable accommodation for the night and Terrylin reviews online were nothing short of fantastic. Im now able to second that sentiment. Stephen and Joy were absolutely wonderful. They take very good care of their guests comfort and safety. There was another couple who was also catching an early morning flight and they connected us so we could share a taxi together. They had already arranged for the taxi before I woke up. Thank you both for making the start of my South Africa journey so comfortable!
