About our home

Will add photo's soon!

Our home is a small(ish), 2-bedroom townhouse in a quiet, secure, remote-access complex.

It is a typical South African, middle-class complex with about 8 families living in the complex.

We have 2 bedrooms, one bathroom, a large open-plan kitchen/living room and a spare room that we currently use as a study.

It is a humble little home, but very neat, clean, well-kept and with all the bits-and-bobs you need (stove/oven, microwave, washing machine, tumble-dryer, Satelite TV etc, etc...)

We also have a small, private garden that is very neat and well kept.

The house has mostly tiled floors, but the 2 bedrooms are carpeted.

This little house is ideal for 2 people that are mature, peaceful and respect other people's property (no hectic parties or drinking!) :)

We live in a very peaceful, quiet neighboordhood in the hills of the Rangeview/Noordheuwel area. We are situated behind the botanical gardens and have a stunning view of the hills and valley below. The neighboorhood is middle-to-upperclass.

A 5-10 minute walk into the hills will bring you to a steep slope that overlooks the valley for miles - all the way to the horizon. Below lies the Muldersdrift and Featherbrook areas.

We are also within 10-15km radius of a Game reserve, caves, a Lion park, the Walter Sisulu botanical gardens (as mentioned), a stunning golf course and a museum.

It is only 5 minutes drive (10-15 minute walk) from the nearest, small shopping mall (it has: a grocer, bottle-store, butchery, optometrist, pharmacy, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Steers, Fish Aways, Chinese Take Out, Barber, Dry Cleaners, Hairdressers, Hardware Store, Habberdashery, Pizza Place, DVD rental shop, Estatge Agents and Hair-and-Beauty Salon).

It is about 15 minutes drive to 3 major shopping malls with cinemas and the works (Clearwater Shopping Mall, Key West Shopping Mall and Westgate Shopping Mall).

We are a young couple (I am 26 and my husband is 27) and we have been married for just over 2 years.

I was an Au-Pair in Germany when I was 18 (in 2000) and I absolutely loved it. My husband has never been overseas, so I would love to take him overseas - and I would like to start in Germany.

I speak a bit of German, but understand it very well (if you wish to write to me in German). I am interested in all countries outside South Africa, though.

We are vey easy-going and friendly people who love travelling (when we can offord it!) and learning about different languages and cultures.

We are both non-smokers and very mature and clean-living. We take life, and our jobs seriously and we want to start having a family soon.

We work for the same company - a major Golf Retailer in South Africa.

I am a graphic designer, and Jaco (my husband) works in the customer-service department. Our company websites are and

We work about 36km from home in a city/town called Woodmead.
