Archie would love your company
I am a retired lady living in Randburg, South Africa. My 3 children have left home and now live in Australia, France and Switzerland. I spend 6-8 months of each year travelling, cruising and visiting friends and relatives around the world. Of the 5 dogs and 5 cats we once loved, only 1 dog remains. Archie thrives on love and companionship while I am off on my travels. I was a Maths and Science teacher, then an IBM Systems Engineer and finally became an Internet Marketer when my first child was born so that I could work from home. For the past 3 years, friends have house-sat for me at the times I have been away. My house sitters will be non-smokers.
Our Home & Location
I live in a quiet street with great neighbours. My home has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with an enormous family room, lounge and dining room all leading out onto the patio and pool. 2 north-facing bedrooms with double and queen beds are available for your use as well as a full bathroom. It is very close to the Cresta and Northgate Shopping Malls as well as Brightwater Commons. The Virgin Active Health Club is a mere 4km, or less than 2km walk, away. The area abounds with restaurants and shops all within a 10 minute drive. Hartbeespoort Dam is just over an hour's drive and Sun City a 2.5 hour drive. You will discover world-class entertainment and dining at Montecasino - a 20 minute drive from home. Enjoy nature at the Johannesburg Gardens and Walter Sisulu National Botanical Gardens both under 30 mins from home. And don't forget the awesome Bryanston Organic Market which you may visit on Thursdays and Saturdays. My house cleaner comes in for 5 hours on Fridays and my gardener comes once a week also on Fridays. There is a cover for the pool which he will put on if you wish. My home is fully alarmed, has security beams all round and is linked 24/7 to a security company. You will have access to Unlimited Fibre Optic WIFI at 50Mb/s.
Responsibilities & Pets
Feeding Archie morning and evening and ensuring a constant supply of fresh water. Keeping the home clean and tidy. There are a few potplants that will need to be watered occasionally as well as watering the roses in the garden. The pool will need to be back-washed weekly and chemicals added when necessary.
