  • Description


    If you are not responsible, hard working, pleasant and easy going please don’t apply. You are here to create a fair exchange and to make our lives easier.

    I am a 32 year old guy who stays with his Mom coz of a scooter accident and I suffered severe brain damage, Otherwise I am fully functional. I am a surfer and general laid back person, living in a great situation. I am looking for young company, we are an eco aware family and grow in a permaculture way. I also do a lot of iPad work to get my brain functioning better and need a person who can play games, do simple therapies and help me along the road to independant living.
    We do our own housework and gardening, all part of living independently and need help with this. We need a lot of help on the housework side.
    If you want to grow in yourself and keep company for a while, that would be great. You will surf all you want and grow here (vegetables aswell).
    Just a note that the beach break here is pretty gnarly and not for beginners. Jared does on occasion go to the easier breaks ie Muizenberg.

    We are a mother and son, living on one of the best beaches in Cape Town. Amazing home, many dogs and a cat, and a beach orientated lifestyle. Jay is somewhat brain challenged from a scooter accident but is physically perfectly able. He surfs a lot, walks dogs and loves to chat. He needs young company and someone to do things with. He also plays a lot of brain challenging games and needs assistance with this.
    We are a very close family and have a lot of people in and out visiting.
    Please don’t think that you are coming here for a full time holiday.
    House work, deep cleaning, gardening, general help and therapy/company is expected.
