We are a South African couple with one child (4 and a half year old) and one cat. My husband is in the industry (Solutions specialist) and I am a part-time art teacher and artist.
We are a very relaxed and easy-going family, open to all cultures. We enjoy people and can help anyone needing to find their feet in this beautiful country. We are hosting in-house for a Thai student at the moment but have another room available for University students, Travellers or workers.
The room is an outside room with a separate entrance which allows for privacy.
