Her storyPatricia is a Christian from Zimbabwe who first worked for a family for 5 months until they could no longer afford her and then for another family for 5 years. We called both for a testimonial

References: Yes, two

What the reference saidWe got Patricia through One Stop Domestic and she worked for us for 5 years, 3 days per week. From day one she took own initiative and never lowered her standard of cleaning once in the time with us. She works with strategy and is always punctual and extremely honest. She took care of our baby when I needed a hand or when baby was sick and at home. She treats children with much empathy and love. She also got along great with our 2 large dogs. She cooked for us and liked to try new recipes, her butter chicken is the best! She is always friendly and a pleasure to have in your home. And the only reason she is no longer working for us is that our family's needs have changed. We wish her the very best for the future and anyone can contact me for a reference about her.

Patricia worked for us for about 5 months. She cleaned and took care of the laundry. She is a very hard worker who was always punctual and never sick. If we would not be in financial trouble, she would still be working for us. She is physically strong and not demanding and her English is very good. She was lovely with our children and they adored her.

Our observationPatricia is soft spoken, easy going and takes own initiative.

References: Yes, two

What the references saidEmily is always polite and punctual. If you ask her to come in additional days she always tries to help you out. She cleans and irons well. With us she doesn't do child minding. She has been with us on a Thursday now for 4 years but should she find full time work we'll understand. She is absolutely honest and I can truly recommend her. Emily worked for both me and and my daughter 1day/week. We had to let her go because of financial reasons. She looked after my daughter's children aged 3 and 5 and Emily's family, her husband and brothers helped me and my husband to build our house. They are awesome people, all of them. Emily is all you need in a cleaning lady, she is kind with the children and always puts them first. I can truly recommend her and we were very sad that we had to let her go.

Our observationEmily is friendly and polite. It was easy for her to describe herself and she is desperate to find work. Even a few days a week. Weekends she spends with her family, goes to church and reads.

They had decided they would prefer a sleep in domestic.  Since then she has been cleaning and ironing every Saturday for a lady and was a full time stand in domestic for 4 months. We placed Juliet for 2 years in a family who had to let her go because of financial reasons but they gave her a nice reference. We found work for Juliet and now she is still looking for the above day(s).

What the reference said: Juliet has been working for me for the last 3 years every Saturday. She is a great girl and I can really recommend her. She does everything I tell her and I am happy with her standard of cleaning.

Juliet cleaned our offices as well as our private home for about 4 months full time as a stand in domestic. We were happy with her and can recommend her to anyone

Juliet is always on time and makes the effort to come early. She is able to learn the way of cleaning you prefer. She cleans fast and we have a very big house and I can definitely recommend her.

We got Juliet from One Stop Domestic. She worked for us for almost 2 years as a cleaning lady  (we have a 4 bedroom home) and also she did the laundry and ironing. Our financial situation changed and we will miss her a lot. She is very honest and puntual and such a realiable cleaner with high family values. We approached One Stop Domestic to find her other work soon.

Our observation: Juliet is a Christian who goes to church every Sunday. Her free time she spends with her children and she loves to cook and read.

While Angel was living with us I was a stay at home mom but she helped me every day a bit with our 2 and 7 year old children when she was finished cleaning. We never had any problems with her. She can do anything for you and would still be with us if we could afford her.

Her story: Portia is a Christian and has twice worked for families with children. Each time until the family moved away. But of the one she still had the telephone number for a testimonial.  For the first family Porcia worked for 5 years and the second one for 3 years. The one family had a 3 and a 5 year old child and the second family had a 6 months old grandchild that came to visit regularly and Porcia took care of the baby unsupervised for a few hours a week. When Porcia started to work for them the baby was 6 month old and I called the grandmother who employed Porcia for a testimonial. Porcia likes to cook and says she is passionate about children. In the meantime she found work and is now still looking for employment on the day(s) marked green above.

References: Yes, three

What the reference said: My family is from Portugal. I have never seen a harder worker than Porcia. When she started to work for me I had 5 ladies employed but could immediately let 2 of them go because she seriously works for two. She sometimes worked for us on Saturdays and even Sundays when we needed her. She would then see out of her own that the weekend would be stressful for me and often suggest to stay. She has a very friendly nature and is not demanding at all. She will fit in anywhere and was lovely and responsible with my grandchild. She took the baby for walks, read stories, played every week a few times. She is a natural with children and a good cleaner. We moved within South Africa but too far to take her with us and it took me forever to replace her.

Porcia was a full time nanny to our 2 year old son for a year (from when he was 1 year old). I fully trust her with him as she shows nothing but patience and understanding. Some people have a way with children, and she is one of them. She is multitasking and a great cleaner as well. She is very dedicated and totally reliable. We have to reduce her days now as our son is starting creche. I can recommend her to anyone and anyone is welcome to contact me about her.

Porcia has worked for two different houses of our family. She cleaned, cooked and sometimes looked after our 2 year old daughter. She takes pride in her work and I can recommend her to anyone.

Our observation: Porcia cleans very well. In her free time she reads. She describes herself as a happy person who is polite and friendly and always smiling. She is a definite extrovert and likes to work with people.

She started to work for us when baby was 4 months old and was with us for a year. I had a breakdown during her time with us and Margaret was very encouraging and understanding.

Her story: Andiswa was a cleaning lady for a guesthouse for a year. For the next 3 years she worked for a family in both their restaurant and private home. In the restaurant she was cleaning as well as making pizzas and fish. The family moved away and we called them for a testimonial. Andiswa also has cleaning company experience and is now looking for a new challenge again. 

References: Yes, two

What the reference saidWe were absolutely crazy about Andiswa.  The only reason why she stopped working for us was because we moved. We even tried to convince her to come with us but it was not possible. She is a very very hard worker and a fast learner. She is always neat and tidy and a physically strong worker too. She never missed one day of work in all the years and worked for our private house as well. After she had done all the ironing and cleaning she went to work in the garden to keep herself busy!! She is very good with children and does stimulational things with them like reading and writing and does not only play with them. She is as honest as can and will be a great addition to each family.

Our observationAndiswa is a thorough and fast worker.  After she had finished the cleaning tasks we had given her she started to help the other women so she is a hard worker and wants to keep herself busy. She describes herself as a hard, quiet worker who likes good communication and who likes kids.

Worked with children before, if yes what ages were they? Yes, 3 years

Her storyFor 2 years Evelyn worked for a family in Erinvale 3 days a week until they could no longer afford her. She says she loves children and likes a clean house. We have a copy of her Ecucare Au Pair course which she paid for herself and called the family for a testimonial. Then we placed her in a family who also gave her a testimonial after her time with them was over. She is now looking for a new challenge again. In the meantime we found work for her and now she is still looking for work on the day(s) marked green above.

References: Yes, two

What the reference saidEvelyn has been working for us for almost 4 years. She comes highly recommended by us. Absolutely trustworthy, punctual and honest. She was almost never sick in 4 years. Evelyn is so clever and we almost found her over qualified for cleaning only. She also doesn't live in a township but is prepared to pay a bit more and live in a flat in the Strand where it is saver. She is great with children. We could only see her with visiting children every now and then of which the youngest one was about 3 years old. She is very patient with them and we often left her alone with the children. Unsupervised. She uses own initiative and often helped me in my office work, laminated for me. Because we have a second cleaning lady who works for us much longer we could no longer afford the two and had to make the decision to let her go. We can really recommend her to anyone. She has gone for a nanny course and has children of her own so I would certainly recommend her to a family with children as well.

We got Evelyn from One Stop Domestic and she was working for us for just over a year. Her duties were to clean our house in the mornings and play with our child in the afternoons. She works unsupervised and had the keys to our house. Because she has her own car she is not depending on public traffic. Our child was 3 years old when Evelyn started to work for us. Now our child goes daily to after care and there is not enough work for Evelyn any more. She loves to work with children and would now not see our child who got very attached to her any more at all. We now took a cleaning lady two days a week and with for Evelyn to find a family with children again soon as she is an excellent child minder....

Our observationEvelyn is one of the few ladies with not only a driver's licence but also her own car. So she doesn't depend on public transport. She is very friendly, smiles a lot and is passionate about children.

Her story: Sima worked for a week as a stand in lady. In 2014 One Stop Domestic found work for her with a family in Somerset West. Sima is still working for that lady and her son's house and they are very happy with her. So we added her as a reference. Now she is still looking for work the day(s) marked green above.

References: Yes, two

What the reference said: Sima worked for us for a week when our own nanny couldn't come. Every morning she was there up to half an hour earlier than what she had to be.  She is a natural with children and my toddler adored her. The older children liked her as well because she took trouble with them. Sima is intelligent, uses her head and is a hard worker. She is friendly, clean, very energetic and asks questions rather than making a mistake. I would really recommend her to anyone.

I thought my previous cleaning lady was special until I met Sima. One Stop Domestic placed her with us. Sima is so self disciplined, always comes a bit early, uses her head and doesn't go before her work is done. We really like her a lot and now she is also working for my son.

Our observation: Sima was very good with my little toddler. When we served the women lunch she was the one who helped out of her own to serve the food and looked for what other work could be done next.

Her storyFor own year, Rose worked full time for a family until the family could no longer afford her. Then she was a stand in domestic for 6 months and is now looking for full time work. We contacted both families for a testimonial.

In the meantime Rose has found full time work and is only looking for employment on the day(s) marked green above.

References: Yes, two

What the reference saidRose was friendly and we never had any issues with her. She looked after my children on weekends, but during the week they were in school. She worked for us full time but because there were 2 ladies working for us, we could no longer afford both of them and had to let her go. She was great with the kids.

Rose is very trustworthy and extremely friendly. She cooked for my children and looked after them. One of her responsibilities, except for playing with the children, was to bath our 3 year old. She was always punctual and is a fast learner. I can definitely recommend her, especially for child care. With us, she only had a stand in position, which is why she is no longer working for us.

Our observationRose struck us as a go-getter who is very polite. She describes herself as humble and loyal. She adapts easily, is a fast learner and likes to laugh. On weekends she likes to read and go to church.

Vimby was cleaning, doing the laundry and looked after their 6 months old baby. One Stop Domestic found work for Vimby for 6 months with a single mom who has two children, aged 3 years and 6 months old, and now Vimby is looking for a new challenge again.

References: Yes, two

What the reference said: Vimby was a real star and we were so glad to have her for 5 years.  She took care of my son until he went to playschool. We liked her a lot and she is a honest, disciplined worker who is fun to have around. A definitive extrovert. We had to let her go after such a long time because my husband and I got divorced and couldn't afford her any more.

Vimby worked for me for 6 months and was alone at home with my youngest girl. I am a single mom, working half day and Vimby was very sweet with her and reliable. Unfortunately when the little one turned one I had to make the decision to take her to creche and let Vimby go because of financial reasons only.

Our observation: Vimby is an extrovert and we had a lot of fun taking her pictures.  In her free time she likes to read and says she likes a clean house. She describes herself as respectful and honest

Her storyFor 2 years Thembi worked full time for a family. When the husband passed away and the children moved overseas the lady asked her to only come clean one day a week. The employer is very flexible as to which day of the week Thembi cleans there but the lady would understand if Thembi finds full time work. We called that lady for a testimonial. One Stop Domestic has placed Thembi in the meantime and the employers are very happy with her work.

References: Yes, two

What the reference saidThembi started to work for us full time. Then first my husband passed away and my child moved to Australia. So now I am alone in the house and only require her to come in once a week. I am totally flexible as to which day of the week. Thembi is clean, works well and is honest. She often gets my keys when I am not there by the time she is finished. I can highly recommend her and you can ask her anything, she will do it for you. I had a hip operation and now many things I can't do myself any more. She has only been absent twice in two years and was also great with my 6 year old granddaughter.

One Stop Domestic placed Thembi with us. We have a big house and a 10 year old child and are very very happy with her. She is so neat, clean and friendly and my house is always clean, what more can I say?

Our observationThembi says she likes a clean house and especially likes to iron. She is well mannered, calm and was very thankful to be able to attend our course. On weekends she goes to church or visits her friends and relatives.

Her storyMercy was recommended to us by her sister who is also registered with us and a super star. Since Mercy was a young adult, she spent a total of 21 years working at a Parmalat cheese factory. She first did packing, but later got promoted to be the main packing supervisor. She lost her job when the factory relocated and we called them for a testimonial.

She then was a stand in domestic for 3 months and got a great testimonial.

What the reference saidMercy was a packing supervisor for us for 21 years. She is very hardworking and won't leave a task until it is finished. Our company relocated and unfortunately it was too far away for her. She is very energetic and also helped to clean the factory, because it was often inspected for hygienic purposes. She is an excellent team worker and can delegate work as well as decide what work gets priority.

Mercy worked for us for almost 3 months. Our house is very big. Mercy is an excellent cleaning lady. She worked very hard and is a quiet lady. As a cleaning lady she ticked all main boxes from being honest, punctual and neat to very hard working. She was a stand-in domestic and is great.

His storyJimmy has been working for two of his employers for the last 5 years. They both gave him a nice testimonial (see below). He came to South Africa in 2007 and can do gardening as well as cleaning, in fact one of his current employers lets him work one day/week in the garden and one in the house. 

One Stop Domestic has placed Jimmy for 2 days/week and he has been working for them since 2016 now. They absolutely love him and have given him a stunning testimonial.

ReferencesYes, three

What the reference saidJimmy has been with us for about 5 years now and works in the house as well as in the garden. I taught him to iron and he does it very well. He never misses work even if the weather is very bad. We have money laying around and nothing has gone missing ever.

Jimmy works super quick like a little machine and is very reliable. He certainly is a hard worker and often saves money with us which he draws closer to Christmas.

We got Jimmy through One Stop Domestic for 2 days/week about 2 years ago. Before him I had many unreliable cleaning ladies until my husband decided it is time to try out a man. I was sceptic at first but agreed to a trial period and what can I say? He is still with us and I really like both his personality and his work. He is humble, hard working and an experienced cleaner who irons well. We live in Stellenbosch and coming from Khayelitsha, transport has never been a problem for Jimmy and anyone is welcome to phone me about him.

Our observation: Jimmy is well spoken. He is clever, a fast learner and an all-rounder who can also take a housekeeping position.

She cleaned very nicely and I can recommend her for both working with children and cleaning.

Faith worked for us for 3 weeks as a stand-in domestic. Nothing ever went missing. If our permanent domestic would not have come back, we would have offered Faith a permanent position because she never stops trying and always wants to please you.

Our observationFaith likes children and on weekends she goes to church and cleans her own house.
