Loadshedding Facilities

What is loadshedding? It refers to the temporary suspension of electricity provided by Eskom, South Africa's electricity provider, to reduce consumption and thereby the load on the national grid. To compensate, South African property owners are turning to solar power, inverters with backup batteries or in some cases generators to keep the power on, wherever feasible.

Verified reviewvery good

Our stay at 85 on Church has been an absolute delight. Yolande has been a wonderful host and made us feel most welcome. The house is just beautifully decorated, very spacious and makes you feel right at home. The garden is also stunning and quite big, with lots of space for kids to run around - or swim, when its nice and hot in summer. It is situated right on the main road, close to all the shops, restaurants and bars - everything within comfortable walking distance . We had a great stay - albeit way too short. Can really recommend to come stay with family or a few friends.
