  • Description

    Description

    We are a married couple in our late 60s and we work together in our own small consultancy practice.
    We have two children, both in their mid-30s, a son and daughter.
    Our son is married and he and his wife own a very popular backpacker lodge in a beautiful coastal setting, about 450km [4-to-5 hours' drive] away.
    Our daughter is unmarried - although she has a 3-year-old daughter - who persistently works abroad, as a teacher.

    Help

    We need a more youthful presence in our home, providing companionship, a little household maintenance and general TLC to our house, befriending our Labrador, help with computers and TVs, and so on.
    You will be welcomed to accompany us on outings to beauty spots and to cultural and social events.
    [Please be assured that there will be no pressure to achieve deadlines; just your friendly presence in our home will be adequate, whilst we continue our business].

    What else ...

    Please google Gonubie, East London and the Wild Coast to see how many amazing local sights there are here.
    Public transport is, however, a problem although there are several low-cost minibus taxis [mainly used by the lower-income groups] available at stops > 1km away from our house.
    There are several pubs and restaurants and two shopping centres within 5km.
    The main beach - about 7km away - is very popular for surfers.
    We have been hosting travellers for many years and became, by far, the most popular hosts in our city.
    We are easy-going and open/youthfully-minded.
