Bedroom with own shower room and toilet in a stunning family home with a pool. We are a short drive from the Blaauwberg beaches and close to restaurants, wine routes and 20 km from the city centre.
We are a uniquely South African family; two white married men (English and Afrikaans) with two black children (nine year old girl and boy) who live in a contemporary South African space. The guest room with its own bathroom (shower, toilet and basin) opens to the exterior with access to an outdoor shower and swimming pool. There is a gourmet kitchen in which meals featuring local produce can be prepared on request. There are is a television viewing area (Netflix), unlimited wi-fi, an indoor braai (barbecue), outdoor entertainment area and balcony with a view of Table Mountain.
Guests will have access to all the listed amenities along with the family who occupy the home on a permanent basis. We do not vacate our home for guests, providing an opportunity to interact with a uniquely new South African family which could never have existed in our country under apartheid.
Interakcija s gostima
We interact as much or as little with our guests as they require within the parameters of a functioning family home with two young children. If you prefer to be left alone we will respect those wishes; if you wish to interact with our family and circle of interesting friends you are more than welcome to do so.
We are a vibrant and fun loving family who want our guests to have fun too in our home and city while respecting the (not particularly rigid) boundaries of a family home with children. We do not tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia or any other form of prejudice or bigotry so if you suffer from any of the aforementioned, please don't come and stay with us! Smokers will be expected to smoke outside the house and drinkers are welcome, as long as our children are never exposed to drunken behaviour. All in all, we expect our guests to relax and have a great time. We have two sociable whippets who are very much part of the family and who love other dogs, so if you wish to bring your dog along please do (cats will unfortunately be chased and possibly eaten by the whippets!)
I am an easy going, friendly and creative person. I have been married to Mark for seven years and we have adopted two beautiful children who are eight years old.
I am an Interior Designer by profession, a trained Sports Massage Therapist, a passionate and creative cook and a loving father.
In am very active and in my busy daily routine I still make time for gym, walks with our two Whippets around the neighborhood or on the beach.
Once a week I bake and cook Banting delights for a local food market.
If I had to choose five things I could not live without they would have to be:
1. My family. My children are very important to me. We chose to have them to give them a better life but they have enriched our lives more than we could ever have imagined.
2. Friends. I love entertaining and spoiling those close to me with food and everything else that goes into making wonderful social occasions.
3. Inspirational Art and Design.
4. Table Mountain and walking on the beach
5. Peace and harmony.
When I travel I like to experience everything that the destination has to offer; the people, the food, the sights, smells and cultures.
I am not a big reader but enjoy a good movie with a good script and acting.
I enjoy watching television shows like Bates Motel, Masters of Sex, Fargo and The Affair.
I love most types of music and try to keep up with popular music as it keeps me young and informed.
I like food that is simple, fresh and delicious.
I am an attentive host with a sense of humor and a lot of style.
Ours is a family home and you will be made part of it if you wish, there are the sounds of laughter and playing children (and the occasional crying!).
As my guest I would expect you to respect our home and family while enjoying yourself.
My motto is to always treat others as you would like to be treated and to behave in a dignified and respectful manner.
