Neo’s Bed and Breakfast was established in the year 2000 when I was retrenched from a financial institution.The house was built in the 1940’s when families were forcefully removed from the Northern suburbs.The house has a history of houses that were built then and were termed ‘MATCH BOXES’in those times,as there were no bathrooms and the toilets were outside .
The house has now four additional rooms with en-suite bathrooms,surrounded by a beautiful well manicured garden and an entertainment area where guests enjoy sunny South Africa reading a book and listening to the sounds of different species of birds.The establishment has been graded a three star.
