Our home is in a remote, rural Xhosa village on the Wild Coast Eastern Cape, the homeland of the Xhosa nation. We need someone to water our plants and feed our 2 medium dogs twice a day. They have enough space to run around on our property so you wont need to take them for walks. We have a couple of chickens which need food and water too and we also have 3 goats at the neighbouring field whose water container needs topping up every other day.
The position would best suit a couple as we are remote and it could get lonely on your own. My motherinlaw lives in her own little house on the property but is a private person and does not need care.
Our place attracts off the beatern track travellers who are happy to either lounge around in our comfortable home reading a book from our good South African authors, enjoy views of the beach on the horizon from our stoep, and watch boys herding their cattle home, braai in our outdoor lapa, walk 4 km's to the beach, an additional 3 to the neighbouring village where you can drink a cocktail at Trennerys holiday destination hotel. We are 25km's from shops but the daily bus goes right past our house.
House sitters should arrive at least a day early to be shown the ropes of switching on water pumps etc and how to get to all the stunning river lagoons and pristine beaches.
Our dates are flexible give or take a day or 2.
