We are looking after our daughter's Scottish Terrier, Nessie. If you are familiar with the breed, be aware that Nessie has been clipped to keep her cool - it is lovely and warm here at the moment. So she doesn't look at all like a traditional Scottie. She is a quiet and self-sufficient dog who appreciates simply being with people. She needs to have fresh water and her dry food topped up twice a day. She also needs a walk at least once a day in the early evening.
We have a few pot plants that need watering every couple of days and our garden will also need watering - manually operated sprinkler system - if the weather is hot and dry.
We have a housekeeper who comes in on Mondays and Thursdays and a gardener who is here every Thursday to look after the house and garden.
Our home is beautiful and modern set in a secure estate overlooking farm dam and mountain. You will have the use of our guest suite and full run of the house and swimming pool. There are various hiking trails running through the estate plus restaurant, tennis courts, squash court, bike track and waterfront onto the main Hartbeespoort Dam.
There are numerous activities in the neighbourhood including ballooning, paragliding / paramotoring, boating and kayaking. The birdlife is prolific and varied with more than 200 species seen on the estate.
Although we are only about 45 minutes from Fourways, Sandton, you will need your own transport to get around.
