Daze House was created as the epitome of all boutique hotel and bed and breakfast experiences. Launched by 33-year-old travel enthusiast and serial entrepreneur, Gabe Leavell, Daze House is an aesthetically delightful hotel that is suitable for the adventure-seeking, fun-loving, yet hard-working individual. It is located in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The house has ten rooms which is the perfect stay for a group of friends or couples that are planning a trip to visit the Motherland, especially being that South Africa is one of the focal points on many millennials minds when they think about visiting Africa in general.
I’ve had a lot of support from friends and family cheering me on to be myself, so being authentic is always the best way to go. The minute I stray away from that, I typically fail or don’t enjoy the outcome.”-GABE LEAVELL

Inspiration of African Culture
“Daze House Boutique Hotel offers experience and indulgence under one unconventional creative roof. It is inspired by various countries in Africa, and has taken a unique twist to showcase them in the minimalistic decor and finishings. It has rooms from Namibia, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe and Tanzania with rich textures and tapestry to signify their history. What makes it even more awesome is the handcrafted and hand-picked artwork and furniture from local designers and artists within the continent. I stayed in Ethiopia, and enjoyed the rustic yet contemporary take on the design. Might I add that the bathroom was to die for!”— Sisonke Labase, W24 Magazine
