I live in a high security complex called "The Willows" that has beautiful gardens and large open spaces that is ideal for running or walking, there is even a pond on the inside to sit next to and relax. Once you drive through the gates you are truly in an oasis of peace and tranquillity, an ideal escape from the noise and business of Johannesburg but yet central enough to get you anywhere without too much of an effort.
I live only 5 minutes away from the Cresta Shopping Centre and 2 minutes away from the N1 Highway, it is super easy to access or exit the highway to get to my house or anywhere else in Johannesburg. I also offer secure parking right in front of my house.
I have a modern 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom house with a lounge that overlooks a private garden. I also have an outside seating area that is ideal for a barbeque or just enjoying being outside. You will find my house super comfortable and well equipped, including cable TV. The room I am renting out is not a very big room although is a friendly light room with big windows. The room has a single bed.
The complex in which I live is extremely safe and it is not uncommon for me to sleep with my doors open. I have a dog that lives with me, he is extremely well mannered.
Guests are welcome to use the kitchen, I also offer a self help breakfast and there is always coffee and tea available. I am also willing to, whenever possible, pick and drop guests off at the Rosebank Gautrain station. If you land at OR Tambo Airport, just hop on the Gautrain and I will fetch you from there.
There is public transport 5 minutes walk away from my complex.
I am a teacher and love working with children. I love being outdoors, spending time with my friends and family. I am quite relaxed and have a great sense of humour. I enjoy being around people, I'm easy going and try not to take life too seriously.
I love traveling and have also worked overseas for a few years. For me traveling is more than just getting to a specific destination but more about the journey to get there.
My other passion is distance running, I have done quite a few road races (marathons and ultra marathons) and you will often find me on the road over weekends.
