We are a married couple, with 2 grown-up sons, living on 2 hectares on the highveld with 4 rotties and 2 biewer terriers. Mike, a retired electronics engineer, owns and runs a boarding kennel and I (Liliane) am a full-time accountant. Friends and family keep asking us when we are going to retire! Probably never!
We have traveled quite a bit and also lived overseas in various places. Self catering is usually our first choice of accommodation when on holiday.
We, and the family, (unfortunately not the dogs) use our apartments in Cape Town when we can both,for business and holidays. Cape Town remains one of our favourite cities
