About the Homestay
My name is Hazel, recently retired from nursing married to Malvin a missionary worker. We have hosted hundreds of non paid guests in our home, mostly from the USA mostly due to our work and also volunteered as a host for a high school German exchange student about 14 yrs ago. We have 2 daughters both married and 5 grandchildren in total. We have been living on our own for a while and have 3 bedrooms available. 1 with double beds, 1 with 2 single beds and 1 with a double bunk. We have a very large lounge/TV area, a braai room and an indoor swimming pool(we have a swim school) We live in the suburbs not too far from city centre and not too far from all the wine farms in the country. We speak English and Afrikaans. Both my husband and I love hospitality therefor all the guests as above. I love cooking and he is a good tour guide.

I had a wonderful experience and a lovely stay , such a warm and welcoming family .
I didn't feel like a guest at all but part of the family.
They were so helpful and caring.
Would definitely recommend them to my family and friends.
