Beautiful Houses Morningside

Beautiful Houses in Sandton they depend on your information source, you will get a different answer to the question of what can be classified as a luxury home. The greatest difference in definitions is between towns; however, there seems to be agreement regarding the upper end of homes.

Homes that are unquestionably luxurious, are worth tens of millions of dollars or more. They have incredible amenities, professional landscaping and property planning, and are generally massive in size with ten or more bedrooms. These homes are advertised nationally and internationally. Real estate agents for these properties have additional responsibilities involving trusts, attorneys, and anonymity issues.

No one seems to question that these homes, often owned by extremely wealthy and usually famous people, are luxurious. In fact, these homes in Sandton should be called “super luxury” homes to differentiate them from other high end homes.

In an entirely different class, the other group of luxury homes, are advertised locally. Property in the US that is valued at over a million dollars is usually considered luxury real estate. Consumers in high socio-economic groups are the target for these properties.

This second group of homes may have features such as wet bars, designer kitchens, wine cellars, theatre seating, in-ground pools, security systems, professional landscaping, heated floors, and tennis courts. These homes are generally larger than average with good locations, amenities, property entries, and entertainment capabilities.

Luxury homes tend to have entertainment rooms with features such as built in seating and high end, up-to-date technology for the best movie watching experiences. Designer kitchens are also very trendy in high end homes with features such as custom paneling for appliances, extra under-the-counter refrigerators or beverage centers, and wine bars that fit among the kitchen pantry and other storage cabinets. Designer kitchens also include granite countertops, high end fixtures, customized storage drawers, and pullout pantries.

There’s no question that this second group of homes are also desirable homes to live in. However, are they really in the same class as homes in Sandton  which are also called luxury homes?

In both groups of homes, location, amenities, property entry, entertainment capability, and landscaping are considered. Most luxury homes offer a combination of desirable natural elements such as ocean proximity, views, or climate, and professionally designed landscaping and architecture. But really, if a 1.2 million dollar, lakefront home with a dock and a swimming pool is a luxury home, then Mariah Carey’s home must be a “super luxury” home.

If you are unsure how to categorize your home, your best bet is to talk to an Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (ALHS). Real estate agents with this specialty are knowledgeable about national luxury home trends, luxury buyer and seller needs, and the development of unique high level services.

Live in someone else’s house

Between September to November 2016, I lived in 25 different AirBnB, from San Francisco, Peninsula, South/East Bay, Oakland to the suburban of Bay area.Map of Bay Area, CA

I moved from New York City to Bay area due to my new job at Startups.
(Recommended read: A Life Before & After The Startup)

I was looking for a place to settle and wanted to know the different areas in the Silicon valley.

I thought the best way to really know the neighbors are to actually live in.So I lived in different areas, switching the places in every few days until I find the right area to settle in.

What is AirBnB?

Airbnb is an online marketplace and hospitality service, enabling people to lease or rent short-term lodging including vacation rentals, apartment rentals, homestays, hostel beds, or hotel rooms. — Wikipedia

$1,000/night Luxury house to $25 Hacker house

AirBnB offers different type of houses.

Yurt (a tent) to a Tree house, Hacker house to Luxury house. 
Entire house, Private room and Shared room.The choice is yours.Yurt in Carmel / Tree house in Burlingame ( I did not stay there)

Depending on your need, there is a ‘right’ place for you, if you search and book them well in advance. Good ones goes first.

I tried different types of setup, room, house, area and neighbors.

I first picked some well-reviewed rooms/houses in SF Peninsula area with costs between $60 — $120/night, then read reviews to know more about the places.

My First AirBnB was a private ‘studio’ house in Redwood City, CA. $90/night.

The studio house was located on the backyard of the host family’s main house, completely private, very clean and true to the description on the site. 
My first AirBnB experience could not be better than this.

My First AirBnB — one of the best experience, if not the best.I moved to the second AirBnB with 3BR house because I had 2 guests staying with. The house costs about $200/night.

If we book hotel rooms for three. Each will cost more than $100/night, so it’s much cheaper than staying in a hotel. 
Besides, this was much better setup for early stage startups like us, since we can do —

Meetings, Hacks and Party — All night long 🙂3BR house in Red Wood City / celebrating test results

After they left states, I switched back to a smaller place, with a private room. The flexibility is one of the merit of AirBnB. You can easily switch places as you please.

A private room in San Carlos / San Francisco

I also tried a type of shared house called ‘Hacker House’ — specially set up for the early stage Tech-Startups entrepreneurs, providing an affordable working space with desks and shared bedrooms. Costs $25~/night.

Hacker House in East Palo Alto and in Cupertino

In Oakland, I booked a beautiful 4BR house for team building activities —

A lot of Meetings, Hacks and Party — All week long :-)After me trying many different neighbors in the Bay area.I got a pretty good idea of how the each neighbors are like.

AirBnB vs Hotel

AirBnB vsv Hotel

You all stayed in Hotel before, so you know what you expect from Hotel.

There are cheap hotels and expensive hotels, but they all comes with a private room with almost identical rules and expectations.

For AirBnB, each place can provide you a very different experience
Some are very private, while some are extremely invasive.

Good thing about AirBnB is that there are so many options. I believe you will get a better experience (value) out of AirBnB if you know how to pick the ‘right’ place.

Finding ‘Right’ Place

When you go to AirBnB.com, you will probably be overwhelmed with all the choices you have (depending on the location, some places may not have many choices). Luckily there are filters to eliminate some unworthy places.

Room Type:

If you are with group, or require complete privacy then select “Entire House”. If you are okay to share the living room, but not okay to share the bed room, then you should select Private room.

Unfortunately there is no easy way to filter for Private Bath room if that’s your thing.

Instant Book:

If you can’t wait for 24 hours for the host to confirm the reservation.

Super Host:

Superhost is a Five-Star host and they are tested and trusted by other users.

3 issues with AirBnB

After trying many different places, there are 3 issues I noticed:

AirBnB — require IoT Smart Lock

Access Management

This is a most obvious and critical issue. Me as a guest entering to the house, the host has to be present to hand over the house key.

Some host installed a keypad door lock and texted me an access cord to enter.

I am hoping that AirBnB is already working on some kind of IoT type solution here.

Ideally, there should be an integration between AirBnB booking and Access Management system,so that when I arrive, the door opens automatically for the duration of my stay.

Privacy

Since you are living in someone else’s house, you can’t expect complete privacy unless the room is physically separated and access management systems are in-place.

Quality of Service

QoS is very much depending on the places. The Five-Star reviewed places are always booked first, so you sometime have no choice but to choose from the places with mixed reviews or less reviews.

Live like a Local and become Local

“Live like a Local” is their slogan — Providing a local information through the host and enhancing the guest experience.

This is kind of true. I had much better feel of the local neighbors/areas while I was staying at AirBnB compared to Hotel.

After living more than two months in AirBnB across many different neighbors in the Bay Area,I finally settled in an area that I loved most.One of the merit of AirBnB is that you can actually live in the neighbor you like as a short term try out.

I hope you enjoy the post.

I loved the experience I had with AirBnB and highly recommend to try if you haven’t tried it yet.

Tack T.
