Marianne always dreamed of starting her own eco-friendly luxury guesthouse and conference centre, and in 2004 found the ideal location in the tranquil paradise of Irene in Centurion. It took a further four years to make the necessary changes and investments before she was happy to open her doors.
Irene, now over 108 years old, has a small country village atmosphere, with unique stone walls and tree-lined streets.
It is a peaceful and convenient location for business travellers with Highveld Technology Park and Route 21 Office Park only five kilometers away.
Superb Centurion restaurants are within a 10-minute driving distance and offer seafood, steak, continental, Portuguese, traditional South African and Turkish, whilst Italian fare is a short walk away.
Albertinah, Maria and Temba who have all been working at the guest house for the past 10 years.
