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 factoy. She first did packing, but later got promoted to be the main packing superviser. She lost her job when the factory relocated and we called them for a testimonial. Mercy says if her new family teaches her how to cook she is willing to cook for them.

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

We have placed her in the meantime and now she is looking for employment on the day(s) marked green above.

What the reference saidMercy was a packing superviser 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 hygenic 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 boxed 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.

Her storyFundiswa worked for almost 3 years at a guesthouse and also has cleaning company experience. When the guesthouse's low season arrived she found herself sleep in work in in Johannesburg where she cleaned, ironed and looked after the baby alone from 4 months of age. After 3 years the grandmother came to stay with the family and she was no longer needed. That family gave her a nice testimonial. In the meantime we placed her and now she still needs work on the day(s) marked green above.

References: Yes, two

What the reference saidFundiswa worked for us for 3 years as a sleep in lady. She was involved with our baby from when the baby was born but from when baby was 4 months old I went back to work and she cared for the baby alone and was very responsible. My mother then came to stay with us and we unfortunately no longer needed her. It would have been too expensive for us to keep her, having my mother around. 

Fundiswa worked at our guesthouse in Port Elisabeth for 2,5 years. Here she had to do a bit of everything, prepare and serve breakfast, clean the rooms and check in guests. We were very happy with her and would have employed her further if she would not have decided to stop working for us herself.

Our observationFundiswa loves children, cooking and is good at cleaning bathrooms. She describes herself as talkative, smiles a lot and likes helping. Her hobbies include reading and watching TV. She likes looking after her own house. She also goes to church on Sundays.

Her story: Elina worked for two years full time in Heldervue. Then her mother fell ill and she had to quit her job and take care of her.  We called that family for a testimonial. Now Elinah is looking for long time domestic work again.

References: Yes, one

What the reference said: Elinah worked for me for about 3 years.  She was very sweet and cleaned very well. Sometimes she looked after my one year old son when he was sick and I had to go to work and I must say she has a real passion for children. Elinah had to leave because her mother fell ill and she had to go look after her for a long time so we had to replace her.

Our observationElinah loves children and was one of the few ladies in this specific domestic course who played with my toddler out of her own.  She says she is a good communicator and in her free time she makes clothes with her own sewing machine.

Her story: Patricia worked for the same family for 6 years. She accompanied the family everywhere to help with their two children. When Patricia started to work for them the first child was a newborn. Although the mother stayed at home Patricia was every day alone with the baby right from the beginning. The children grew very attached to her but when they went to creche there was no more work for Patricia who is looking for a new challenge again. Patricia has done an Early child development course of 5 half days. There she learned about hygiene, baby massage, to make toys out of waste and make play dough. The course focused on children between 3 months and 5 years of age. 

One Stop Domestic placed her full time with a family where she works a few years now. They are also very happy with her work. The family reduced her days this year and now she is still looking for work on the day(s) marked green above. See the additional reference they gave her below.

References: Yes, one

What the reference saidPatricia's best point is the childcare. She is so natural, careful and responsible with them. My child she helped with from when it was a newborn, some days several hours when I was out. She kept our house clean and took care of the laundry. Patricia was always friendly and patient with my children and very honest. She was punctual, not often sick and uses her own initiative. I would recommend her to anyone, especially to women with small children.

Patricia has been placed with us by One Stop Domestic just over 3 years ago when our youngest child was born. I felt totally comfortable to leave the baby in her care a few months later to go back to word. Patricia looked after the baby and during nap times cleaned the house and did the laundry. Now the little one went to creche and we had to downscale her 5 days to 3. Patricia is 100% honest and a good communicator. She would never let strangers int the house, is friendly and easy to get along with and I can strongly recommend her for any position.

Our observationPatricia is experienced with newborn babies and is very friendly.  In her free time she goes to church or bakes. She describes herself as an easy person to get along with.

Her storyIn Zimbabwe Angel was a sleep in domestic for a family with 2 children aged 2 and 7 years. She cleaned and played with the children until the family could no longer afford her. In South Africa she worked full time for a guesthouse which had no work for her in low season. We contacted both for a testimonial.

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.

She is always willing to learn new things and she is a quick and thorough worker and very good with animals. She prepared our dinner when I was unable to do so. Letti left out of her own because she wanted to spend more time with her parents and children.

Her storyFor 2 years Juliet worked full time for the same family. 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).

References: Yes, four

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.

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.

Her storyPrecious' mother works for a family in Zimbabwe. In the beginning Precious helped them out when her mother was sick, but later became part of their permanent staff as they had many guests and her mother couldn't manage the big house alone. Precious worked for them from for 7 years. Their children were 10 and 12 years old when she started to work for them and we called the family for a testimonial. For 6 months she was working in Somerset West as a cleaning lady and nanny in a family where we placed her and we also got a reference from them. In the meantime we have placed her again and now she is still looking for work on the above day(s). She goes to church on Saturdays and can't work then.

References: Yes, two

What the reference saidFor Precious' reference we phoned all the way to Zimbabwe. The employer told us that Precious is very hard working and that she was with them for 7 years. First she helped out in the house and later her position became more permanent until she decided to join her husband in South Africa. The children liked her, she is very kind and has done some basic cooking. She is trustworthy and a very quick learner.

We got Precious at a difficult time from One Stop Domestic when our second child was about to arrive. We left her alone with house and animals and I thought if she could cope alone for a few days she would be a good fit. Precious was punctual and not sick but I wanted more of a nanny than she was, she cleaned well but I expected to have a lady who is naturally more interested in my kids. We got now a replacement from One Stop. I can recommend Precious for cleaning but think cleaning and kids will be too much for her if the kids are too small.

Our observationPrecious says that she is eager to learn anything new and on weekends, she listens to music, cleans her own house and goes to church.

But Nene was alone with the toddler several times a week when the mother quickly went out to go somewhere. We called the family plus a second family where she worked for 2 years for a testimonial. We placed her but the family could no longer afford her, they gave her a nice reference as well. In the meantime we placed her again and now she is only looking for work on the above day(s).

Nene's English is very good and she just always comes.  She is well mannered and often alone at home.  She is also naturally good with children.

Nene worked for us for over a year. We got her from One Stop Domestic. She was never absent from work other than for planned leave. She is honest and worked completely unsupervised. She was good with our pets and made always sure all windows and doors were locked before leaving in the afternoons. I can also say that she irons very well.

Her storyFuneka's employer approached us to help find her more days as she is such a wonderful lady. She started to work for her current employer in 2000 already but because the children are in creche it is now only one day a week. Since 2004 she is working for another family also. We called both employers for a reference. Funeka loves cooking and cooked supper for the whole family. 

References: Yes, two

What the reference said: Funeka has been working for me for 15 years now. First full time then we had to reduce her hours because the children went to creche. She is very reliable and honest and great with children. She raised two children for us from newborn, cleaned, ironed and did other chores around the house. I can recommend her to anyone. 

Funeka is super trustworthy. She has the keys to our house and uses her own initiative when she cleans as we are not at home when she comes. She is always friendly towards us and lets us know if she can't come which doesn't happen often.

Our observationFuneka is very friendly. By working for the same family now for 15 years she shows that she is interested in a long term relationship with her employers. We could also see her passion for children.

References: Yes, two

What the reference saidFaith worked for us for 3 months until we moved too far away. She cleaned and ironed for us and, in the afternoon our two children were at home and when she was finished with her cleaning tasks she played with them. They both liked her lots. 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.

Her story: Masleen is a Christian who worked for a family full time for two years. The family had 3 children aged 10, 4 and 2. Masleen looked after the little one and helped in the house with cleaning and laundry. Then the family no longer needed a full time domestic and now they still call her every now and then to clean their house. She has an Au Pair and CPR course and her two children are both grown up and living in Zimbabwe. She has one grandchild and was the first lady ever to bring a pen and paper to our course to make notes. One Stop Domestic found work for her looking after a 3 months old baby. Unfortunately the family had to move but gave her a very nice reference. Masleen currently works as a nurse but is off every Thursday and looking for Thursday work in the Cape Town area.

References: Yes, two

What the reference saidMasleen has been working for us for two years full time. She helped to look after our smallest one a lot but also played with the other two. She cleaned and took care of our laundry. For the children she prepared basic meals. Her ironing is very good. Then the children grew up and we now only call her to clean our house when we need her which is about once in two weeks. Masleen is always puctual and is a very happy person with a great attitude. She is absolutely honest and her English is fantastic. I can recommend her to anyone.

We got Masleen from One Stop Domestic. She was with us for about 6 months and cleaning our small flat as well as looking after my 3 year old baby boy 3 days/week. We were very fond of her. She was both committed and responsible as well as hard working. We had to move and that's the only reason she no longer works for us. I was often at home when she cared for the little one but at times out of the house as well. She was wonderful with him and followed all my instructions well. I can certainly recommend her for both cleaning and child minding.

My observationMasleen has experience with both children and elderly. Her own children are grown up. On weekends she plays the guitar at her church and describes herself as a friendly person who is passionate about children.

In the meantime we have found full time work for her and she is now still available to work for you on the day(s) marked green above.

References: Yes, one

What the reference saidConstance worked for us for 3 years 3 days/week until we moved to Durban. She is absolutely amazing and we loved her to bits. Her main duties were to keep the house clean and do the ironing. Sometimes I needed her in the afternoon to play with my children who liked her as well. She is an amazing type of person and would still be working for us if we would not have moved too far away. She was able to declutter my children's mess in no time and made our home comfortable for us. She can cook and knows how to work with delicate fabrics when she does your washing. She was capable to do shopping lists and is extremely honest with everything.

Our observationConstance is shy at first. In her free time she plays with her own two children, likes to cook, liesten to music and play volleyball. She likes to work in her garden and goes to church on Sundays.

What the reference said: Margaret was working for me for two years. I had a hair salon which I ran from home. She would clean the house and salon and the only reason why our working relationship ended is because I moved. She is nice to have around and cleans thoroughly and always smiles. She often played with my client's children while I cut the mother's hair and she was really good with them. Margaret worked for us until we moved. She was the best cleaning lady and nanny I ever had. She started to work for us when baby was 4 months old and was with us for a year. I had a breakdown and Margaret was very encouraging, understanding. We became friends and still have contact today and I doubt I will find someone like her ever again since my child got so attached to her as well....

Our observationMargaret is a Christian who is an extrovert and had no problems describing herself. She is self confident and in her free time likes to cook or read. She likes to clean and spend time with friends. Sundays she goes to church and says if she does something wrong she wants to be told so immediately in order to do it better next time.

Her storyNodia worked for a Dutch family for 3 years until they moved back to Holland. Sometimes she looked after their youngest child but she mainly cleaned and took care of the laundry. We contacted them via email for a testimonial. Nodia hasn't cooked for other people but loves cooking and is willing to be taught. One Stop Domestic found a stand in position for her for a domestic on leave and we also contacted that employer for a testimonial.She then worked for a family for just over a year until she had a baby and they had to fill her position. She is now again looking for work on the day(s) marked green above.

References: Yes, two

What the reference saidNodia worked for us for 3 years as a housekeeper until we moved back to Holland. She uses her own initiative and is nice to have around. Our children liked her from the start and she sometimes played with our youngest child who was at that stage 2 years old. She would follow my instructions regarding the child 100% and was very responsible with the children but still fun. They got along well and the way she treated our children was also nice to me.  She is a very good lady, kind and reliable and I can recommend her to anyone.

Nodia was a stand in domestic for 3 weeks for our lady on leave. After an initial introduction she went on herself and I was satisfied with her work.

Nodia worked for us for just over a year. We do have a 10 year old son who is in after care but when he was sick I left him with her. My husband works from home and we were happy with Nodia's willingness to always learn new things and get things done. She did need some guidance in the beginning. She is super reliable and nothing went missing ever and whenever she had to come in a bit later she would let me know. She took a while off to be a mom and we unfortunately had to fill her position.

Our observationNodia likes to communicate and learn new things. In her free time she bakes and meets friends. She likes children and on weekends cleans her own house and does her own ironing.

Her storyMargaret worked for a family for a year until Margaret gave birth and decided to be a mom for a while. With that family there was no child minding involved although she already looked after a 1,5 year old child of another family. She was alone at home with the toddler but when the family moved overseas she forgot to ask them for a reference. We called the family in Stellenbosch where she worked for a year, for a testimonial.

What the reference said: Margaret worked for us for a bit more than a year. She took care of the household and was very reliable and hard working.

What the reference saidConstance worked for us for a year until we moved away. She was doing a great job with our baby girl while my husband and I were at work. We totally relied on her coming in on time which she always did. She was also always in a good mood and we can certainly recommend her. 

Constance worked for us for almost a year. My children liked her although she didn't have to look after them as they were too old. She never complained about anything and she is always positive. Unfortunately we had to let her go because of financial reasons otherwise she would still be working for us!

Constance worked for us for just over a year for 2 days/week. She is a lovely lady who is always cheerful and friendly. Her English is very good and her duties with us were cleaning, ironing and helping with our now 2 year old twins. She played with them, fed them and put them down for their naps.

Her storyPatricia is a Christian who worked for 4 years as a char for a family with two children. They were 7 and 2 years old when she started to work for them. Then they moved to Australia and Patricia doesn’t have a reference from then. She says if someone teaches her how to cook she is willing to cook for her new family. For the last 3 years she works for the same family every Tuesday but since one day is too little income she is looking for full time work. That employer gave her a very nice testimonial.

One Stop Domestic placed her and she again got a good reference.

In the meantime we placed her once more. She has been working there for several years. And now she is still looking for Saturday work.

References: Yes, two

What the reference saidPatricia has been working for me once a week for 3 years now. She is totally reliable and honest and every time locks up our house properly before she leaves.  She is intelligent, hard working and uses her initiative. Everyone in the family likes her, also our cat.  If she can’t come she let’s me know and always adds that little extra touch to my house.  In the 3 years she has also helped out my friends and neighbors and they were equally happy with her. I can recommend her to anyone.

Patricia was given to us by One Stop Domestic. She was our nanny for our daughter from when she was only 3 months old. She also cleaned the house sometimes and I must say she irons very well. We no longer need Patricia's service and hope One Stop Domestic will be able to find her a cleaning and nanny position soon.

Our observationPatricia cleans thoroughly and uses her own initiative. Her favorite tasks are ironing and child minding. She immediately made contact with my toddler and started to play with him.  She is naturally good with children and has three children of her own who were born between 2000 and 2011.

References: Yes, three

What the reference said:  Miriam has been working for us for 17 years now.  I don't know what we would do without her.  She knows the house inside out and uses her own initiative to decide what needs to be done when  Miriam has been with us for 9 years.  She is very honest and always on time.  She gets all her work done and is not "old for her age".  She irons very well and is clean and neat. She can speak Afrikaans, English and Xhosa and is well spoken and intelligent.  I can recommend her to anyone.

My observation  Miriam says she likes to spend her free time with her family. She likes to iron and says she is now just too old to look after young children but if the children are already in school she can look after them.

References: Yes, two

What the references saidPatricia worked for us for 10 years. She is very reliable and trustworthy and a hard worker. She was part of the family and is very patient. My son was 9 years old when she started to work for us and she was always kind to him and his friends. We moved too far away for Patricia to still be our cleaning lady. Would we not have moved, she'd still be working for us!

Patricia was employed by a cleaning company that closed down. During her time with the cleaning company she worked for us for 6 months, 2-3 x/week. She is a hard worker who always goes the extra mile. She quickly saw how I wanted things done and went on doing them that way. She irons well and has not been sick once. She cleans thoroughly, moves furniture around and cleans all corners. She is a quiet lady and her overall cleaning is excellent. She will be an asset for any employer.

Our observationPatricia likes to work with children and likes to clean. On weekends, she goes to church, helps at her church, visits friends and plays with her children.

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.

Their baby was 4 months old when she started there and went to creche at the age of  2,5 years when they decided to clean the house themselves. We have placed her into a family where transport became an issue and then with a guesthouse which had to let her go when the season was over. After that she was a stand in domestic for 4 months. 

In the meantime she found work and is now still available on the day(s) marked green above.

What the reference saidNolu has worked for me for more than 3 years.  She was so much more than an employee – she was like a sister to me.  She is a very hard worker and absolutely gorgeous with the kids.  I can recommend her to anyone! 

We live on the other side of Stellenbosch and Nolu worked for us nicely. But the transport became an issue. We were very sad to loose her because of transport issues. She cleaned for us and took care of the laundry. Both my husband and I work and we have two children.

We are a guesthouse and got Nolu from One Stop Domestic. She was with us for one season. When it gets quiet we unfortunately have to let a lot of ladies go every year. Nolu always has a smile on her face. She cleaned the rooms, made beds and took care of flowers and amenities and we were happy with her work. 

Nolu is punctual, kind and friendly. She works hard and cleans and irons well. She has a kind heart and was good with my children and pets.

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.

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. 

We placed Deliwe in the meantime and now she still needs work on the day(s) marked green above.

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. She stays with her husband and one child and likes to read. She is willing to be taught how to cook.
