Her storyIn the Eastern Cape Mimi worked for 2 years at the confectionary of SPAR's catering service. When she and her husband, who is working full time, moved to Cape Town she cleaned for a company until the contract ended. In 2015 One Stop Domestic placed her in a family in Somerset with two school children. We placed her again into a family in Somerset until she was in a taxi accident and because of her long absence they had to fill her position. But now she is good to go again....See all testimonials below.

References: Yes, two

What the reference saidMimi worked for us for 2 years. She is a hard working girl who likes to work with people and is very honest. She has a passion to cook and bake and always smiles. She moved to the Western Cape and that's the only reason why she's no longer working for us.

We got Mimi from One Stop Domestic. She was with us for just over a year until we decided to use cleaning services once a week. Mimi cleaned thoroughly. My two primary school children liked her as well, she always had a nice word for them.

One Stop Domestic placed Mimi with us and she was working for us full time for about 18 months. She was working alone at home while my husband and I were at work and nothing went missing ever with money sometimes all over the place. She is such a friendly nature and had to walk up a hill each morning to get to us. When she was in a taxi accident her leg was in a cast for quite some time. We kept contact for a long time but then had to replace her as the leg needed more time to heal than everyone thought before. I can definitely recommend her, fully trusted her with my house and belongings.

Our observationMimi is very kind and smiles a lot and is good with children. She says she can bake cakes and rusks and spends her free time with her friends and children.

Her storyDeliwe is a Chrsitian who currently works for a family every Saturday. She started there End of 2015, cleans and takes care of the laundry. She already was working as a stand in lady in Somerset for a family with a 4 year old child. She cleaned and ironed for them and played with the child. One Stop Domestic found another stand in position for her, looking after a 1 year old girl. The family gave her a nice testimonial. 

References: Yes, three

What the reference saidDeliwe I would describe as very loyal. She is always on time and if she can not make it on time always lets me know. I totally trust her because she works alone in our house while my husband and I are at work. When I come back everything is done and in its place. 

Deliwe worked for us for 6 weeks when our domestic could not come. She ironed for us, cleaned and in the afternoons played very nicely with our 4 year old boy. We are a household of 6 in a fairly big house with 4 bedrooms and she managed very well. She is hard working and never complained, was thankful for every little bit we gave her like clothes for her own boy and anything to eat. She is well mannered and we can certainly recommend her.

We got Deliwe from One Stop Domestic. We are German tourists and stayed in Somerset for 2 months with our little daughter Lena, 1 year old. Deliwe came to us twice a week and was only responsible for our girl. She played with her, changed nappies, fed her and put her down for her afternoon sleep. She also once did babysitting for us in the evening and I can strongly recommend her. She was at all times responsible with Lena and when she slept did light houswork in between. She has a boy herself who is a bit older than Lena. We had all our valuables laying around and nothing went missing ever. Should we again visit South Africa, maybe when we have our second child, we will definitely employ her again!

Our observationDeliwe likes to laugh and weekends spends time with her family and cleans her own house.

Her storyJane is a Christian who worked for the same family for 2 years. They had a 4-months-old baby and Jane was alone at home with the baby until the boy was 2 years old. Then Jane was a stand-in domestic for 6 months for a nanny on maternity leave. Here Jane was alone at home with a 2-year-old child while the 5-year-old sibling was in a creche. Jane was also responsible for the cleaning and laundry of the house. Jane has a lot of certificates and we have a copy of all of them including her driver's license. She also was a trainee at a Somerset West playschool for 2 - 5-year-old children.

References: Yes, two

What the reference said: Jane was a stand-in domestic with us for 6 months. Our own nanny was on maternity leave. Jane looked after my 2-year-old child alone at home while my other child was in creche. She also cleaned the house and took care of the laundry. Jane is very punctual and very honest and my house was always as clean as it can be taking the fact that she still had to look after a busy 2-year-old. We still have contact with her because my kids miss her a lot and I certainly do recommend her for child-minding as it comes naturally to her.

Jane worked for us full time for 4 years. She cleaned and interacted with our children, who are sad that she no longer works for us. She is a natural with children, neat, well-dressed and well-spoken. Jane has never been away from work without a proper explanation and uses her own initiative when cleaning. She always goes the extra mile for you and only leaves when the work is done. I can highly recommend her to anyone and anyone is welcome to contact me about her!

Our observation: Jane works independently and says she likes cooking, even did some light meals for the children before. So if someone teaches her she would love to cook for her new family.  She has a valid driver's license and could also be an Au Pair driving your children to their activities. In her free time Jane plays with her own child and goes to church on Sundays.

Name: 10.) Patience was born in 1976 in South Africa. She worked for the same family for 5 years, where she cleaned, washed and ironed.

Julia worked for us for about 6 months until we, due to my husband's work circumstances, no longer afford her. She is a well mannered lady and my house has never looked that clean. We trained her how to put our baby into a routine and it worked very well. We have organized for her to attend a course for CPR and baby care and I think she will be a big asset to any household with or without children.

Her storyBussi worked for a year for a family with a 3 year old child until they could no longer afford her. She then worked for a family with two children full time for a year until the family moved. Then Bussi started to work for a family where the mom was expecting twin girls. She assisted the mother from when the twins were out of hospital until Bussi went on maternity leave herself and they had to fill her position. In all three families Bussi did a combination of cleaning and child minding and we have very good references of all three families about her, please have a look at them below. We also have a copy of her child minding and first aid certificate. For another year Bussi worked for a family and raised their son from newborn until 1 year. He went to creche and they could no longer afford her.

References: Yes, four

What the reference saidMy husband and I both work and were shocked when our previous nanny had to leave. Bussi jumped right in and ran my household plus looked after our 3 year old daughter in the afternoons. She is so capable and multi tasking! She managed everything from writing me a weekly grocery list to re-organizing my daughters playroom. She became my daughter's friend, packed her lunch box and got her ready for school every morning. We had to let Bussi go after a year because our financial situation changed drastically and I must say I have not been able to find a suitable replacement as hard working as her.

Bussi worked for us for just over a year. Her main duty was to look after our two children, aged 2 years and 2 months at the time. The children were her priority and housework was done when they slept or were in school. We then moved too far away for her to still work for us and were very sad that we lost a hard working lady who works so well with children.

Bussi started working for us 2 weeks before our twin girls arrived. She helped me with them from the start. Her responsibilities were sterilizing the baby bottles, bottle feed them and play with them when they were awake. She also cleaned our house. Then Bussi went on maternity leave herself and we has to replace her as it is very hectic with twins. We are sure she will soon find work again as she is so dedicated, never was sick or late.

Bussi worked for us for a year from when our son was a newborn until he was 1 year old and went to creche. We could then no longer afford her. We fully trusted her with him and he cried when she left in the afternoons. Looking after babies is definitely her strong point and when he slept she cleaned and did the laundry. I can strongly recommend her!

Our observationBussi truly loves children which all 3 of her previous employers confirmed. In her free time she likes to swim and play netball. Sundays she goes to church.

Her story: For many years Selina has been working for the same lady, cleaning her house once a week and we called that lady for a testimonial.One Stop Domestic has also placed her into a family full time for a few years and we never had any complaints about her.

References: Yes, two

What the reference said: Selina is very reliable and honest. I am a teacher and am never at home when she comes to clean. She has the keys to our house and comes and goes on her own. I don’t have any complaints about her and can recommend her to anyone.

Selina worked for us for 3 years and was recommended to us by another family in our complex. She worked for them for 4 years. She was with us for 3 days/week. She is a gentle and kind lady who is very dedicated, punctual and reliable. She hardly ever misses a day of work. We loved having her around and she became part of our family. My boys loved playing with her and I fully trusted her with them. She attended nanny and me classes with my youngest son and was great with the children's safety. Mindful of falling risks and checking what they put in their mouth etc.  Selina is absolutely trustworthy and honest and a real gem!

Our observation: Selina is quiet and an introvert. She says she does not like cooking but likes to clean and iron. She has been working for that one lady for many many years now and I think that shows that she is seriously interested in another long term working relationship. And that she is able to stay in one job for long, I think that means a lot.

Her storyZanele cleaned in a restaurant for 2 years but when the restaurant closed down she forgot to ask them for a reference letter. She then did unpaid voluntary cleaning work at an office in Stellenbosch for 6 months to gain more experience. We called her supervisor of the Stellenbosch offices for a testimonial. 

Zanele is currently cleaning for a student in Stellenbosch on a Wednesday but would like to have full time employment in order to improve her income. We also contacted them for a testimonial. She is tired of sitting at home 4 of 5 days and serious about finding full time work.

References: Yes, one

What the reference saidZanele has worked for us for 6 months which is the maximum time we take people. The ladies come walking to us from Kayamandi. We don't pay them but give them the opportunity to gain cleaning experience. They clean inside the offices, office rooms, bathrooms and office equipment and also work in our garden. I remember Zanele well. She was a fantastic worker. Was always on time and came and left with a smile. Did good cleaning and we all were happy with her. I can definitely recommend her for cleaning.

Zanele has been cleaning my student's flat for over a year now every Wednesday. She is so sweet and always lets me know if she can't make it and comes another day instead. Nothing goes missing ever. I will however understand if she finds full time work as one day a week can not bring enough bread on the table. I really hope somebody will give her a chance full time although it will be hard for me to find a replacement.

Our observationZanele likes new challenges and can iron well. On weekends she likes to spend time with her family, to clean her own house and to read.

Her storyWhen Pamela was still in school she cleaned a lady’s house when her mother was sick and couldn’t clean. They moved away and she worked for a year as a stand in domestic. One Stop Domestic found stand in work for her and now she is looking for work on the day(s) above.

Pamela came to us to help out because my nanny broke her fingers. She was also very nice with my children.

We got Pamela from One Stop Domestic as a stand in domestic. I really like her and wanted to offer her a permanent position but she unfortunately had already found permanent work. She was all I needed in a domestic. Friendly, punctual and had a good attitude. She was nice to have around and I can certainly recommend her.

Her storyConnie was a full time domestic for a family with 3 children for 5 years. Their children were 8 and 14 years old and the mom was expecting when Connie started to work for them. The first four months the mother was also at home with Connie and the baby and then Connie took care of the baby alone at home. The family moved away but gave her a nice testimonial. Connie has also office cleaning experience and a driver's license but says she doesn't have much experience in driving because she never drives.

References: Yes, one

What the reference said: Connie has been working for us for 5 years full time. She is a great worker and nice to have around you. She is absolutely reliable and well organized. She could declutter the messes my children made in no time. Connie is a great cook and adapted well to our specific meal plan. She cooked us dinner on a daily basis. Her skills with laundry and delicate fabrics are also excellent. I can recommend her to anyone.

Our observationConnie smiles a lot and likes to sing. On the weekends she goes to church and cleans her own house. She is an experienced cleaner and child minder.

Worked with children before, if yes what ages were they? Yes, one week old

Her story: Caroline worked full time for a family in Stellenbosch for a year but when the father of the family was retrenched they had to let her go. When her next family moved she did occasional babysitting and found herself full time work again until they decided to no longer employ her after lockdown. So now she is looking for a new challenge again.

ReferencesYes, three

What the references said:

Caroline is a reliable and honest worker who is absolutely fantastic with children.  She was very loving and comforting towards my son and very safety conscious

She is naturally good with children and my son always enjoyed her company.  She knows well how to educate and stimulate a baby or child and even taught me a few tricks.  We sadly had to let her go because my husband was retrenched. 

Caroline was very loving and creative when playing with our daughter who she looked after from when she was one week old.  Her communication skills are excellent.  She would always take her out in nature and explain things to her.  I always felt very comfortable when our children were in her care. She has never been late for work and quickly became part of our family. 

Our observation: Caroline arrived with a smile and left with one.  She is self confident and cleaned well. We would especially recommend her to anyone who looks for a nanny for a very small baby since she has also all the certificates to look after them, including CPR.

Her storySibo worked for a family for 2 years until they moved away. She now works in the Strand 2 days/week and is looking for the above day(s). We contacted the family she worked for about a testimonial.

References: Yes, one

What the reference saidSibo worked for us for 2 years. She always came in a bit earlier and was never late. You won't regret employing her.

Her story: We found a stand in cleaning position for Vuyeka for 3 weeks. The family had 2 children. Vuyeka then worked 3 days for a single mother with two children who could no longer afford her. We placed her once more. This time it was a full time position for almost 4 years until the family put their 2 girls in school and could not afford to pay her and the school. They gave her a great testimonial.

References: Yes, three

What the reference saidVuyeka worked for us as a stand in domestic in the summer school holidays. Our sleep in nanny took her yearly leave. Our children were 7 and 9 years old and although her main focus was not on the children but on cleaning the house and taking care of the laundry she interacted with them daily. If I must name one thing that caught my eye it was how well Vuyeka can pack a clothing cupboard, she just has that touch with the laundry and packs it so neatly. 

Vuyeka worked for me for about 3 months 3 days a week. My two girls were 6 months and 10 years old and they loved her. She mainly looked after the 6 months old so I could work from home while the older girl was in school. My oldest girl is still angry at me for having to let her go because of financial reasons only. Although I was always at home she was unsupervised with my little daughter and after a few weeks of getting to know each other managed her well.

Vuyeka worked for us for almost 4 years. Our two girls grew to like her so much and will miss her dearly. We have decided to put them into a school and will therefore not be able to afford Vuyeka and the new school. She has been excellent with the girls and the household and I can strongly recommend her to anyone.

Our observation: Vuyeka says she likes new challenges and is passionate about children. She also treated all our equipment with care and was playing with my toddler out of her own.

We called that family for a testimonial. Sue likes cooking and if someone teaches her is happy to cook for the entire family.

References: Yes, one

What the reference said: We left Sue alone with our 2 months old baby to look after full time while she did the household as well. Not many people her age are the way she is, respectful, never complaining about anything. That girl is a hard worker and will fit in anywhere. In the summer she used to get up with our baby at 5 o’clock in the morning. We would have kept her but the economy here in Zimbabwe is so bad that we could not pay her much and she went to South Africa to hope for a better income. She will always go that extra mile for you and work long hours if she has to.

Our observation: Sue is very mature for her age. She describes herself as honest and punctual and she played a long time out of her own with my toddler so I would certainly recommend her as a nanny.
