  • Descripción


    We, Saphira, Hedda and Daniel Erasmus live in Kuthumba, an eco-village near Plettenberg Bay on the Garden Route . Kuthumba is a 165 acres protected indigenous forest in vicinity to the Ocean. Families with like minded ideals; eco consciousness, aware parenting, unschooling principles.., have flocked together to create a new lifestyle for this generation and the next . We would love to host an aupair for our daughter Saphira (4).
    Do you have a playful spirit and enjoy diving into the fantasy world of the young?. Could you allow their spark of creativity and imagination ignite yours and vice- versa; do you enjoy forest and bush adventures together ?
    We lead a spiritually oriented life which includes a vegetarian diet. We are nature lovers and carry a deep respect for Mother Earth and her inhabitants.
    If you resonate with our lifestyle, values and this aupairing opportunity our home would love to become your home during the South African summer.

    We would love to host an aupair with a gentle spirit who can lovingly connect in play and artistic creation. Saphira loves painting, drawing, arts & crafts and baking. Our neighbours are good friends and occasionally other young children will join the fun! We could also appreciate a kitchen fairy; occasionally cooking a meal and washing the dishes. Beside childcare a pair of green fingers for our veggie / fruit forest garden would be needed. Also we are currently busy building a new cob home. You could participate and learn from the experience.

    Our house will be your base and you will have your own private and beautiful space to withdraw and sleep. This humble abode has the feeling of a little Temple. The place is quite rustic it doesn't have all the facilities, except for a water reserve and solarlight, but the main house, with all facilities is close by. Our invitation is for nature lovers!

    Kuthumba borders the Tsitsikamma forest and offers wonderful hiking opportunities. The Ocean is about 1 and a half hour hike and has an amazing deserted feel. We are also close to other stunning beaches which we visit on a regular basis and you are welcome to join us. On your free days you can enjoy a quiet full nature immersion or you can give into the many adventures that the garden route offers.

    There is no public transport but there is the possibility to get a lift from us or any of the community members. You can also borrow our bicycle.
