The Guesthouse

Located in a leafy and tranquil corner of the cosmopolitan village of Melville, which is conveniently situated in the heart of the Johannesburg metropolitan area, South Africa.

Life on 3rd is within walking distance of Melville's trendy street life. Life on 3rd boasts 14 rooms and can accommodate almost any need, whether it is for single travelers, couples, families or groups alike. When staying with us, guests can expect a chic, contemporary ambience of "old meets new" complimented by clean lines, earthy tones and hints of red.

Our wooden decked courtyard with casual seating offers guests the opportunity to soak up the African sun or take refuge under umbrellas while enjoying the peaceful atmosphere. After a long day of business or sight seeing guests can put their feet up in the lounge.
