LAKEVIEW ON VAAL

Self Catering Waterfront Accommodation, Penthouses and House in Deneysville

On hold for COVID-19 at the Vaal, but not for long: When you thought you couldn't manage a more isolated and secluded outdoor experience, embrace rest and relaxation with spaces wide and exposure less possible than anywhere else in SA! We assure you of top class hygiene protocols and social distancing a natural state of being. Introducing the Vaal Dam! Self-drive & Self-cater in Safety! Cook or braai yourself or splash out with our dinner, bed and breakfast special packages - to celebrate the new, out-door Sisters Dam Pub. Take advantage of our free mini-carwash too. Let us dust off the dirt from your short drive from Gauteng (or Bloem.), to Deneysville, which straddles the Gauteng-Free State border, 60 mins from Jhb, 90 minutes from Pretoria. We provide daily hygiene packs and sealed starter packs are for sale additionally, (both wet and dry - details on booking).

We offer a variety of configurations to suite all, from couples to large groups or families getting together at our Vaal Waterfront, penthouses, fully equipped, self-catering and catered-for accommodation at Deneysville.

With action aplenty you won't fall short of activities to keep you busy this Christmas and New Year. Fish by day, swim or take a boat trip or safari cruise on our aqua uber. Or, if you are a skipper, self-sail  round the island - yes there is one, 7km long and growing as the water subsides! Alternatively we can arrange the Party Boat for you - taking up to 30 people (3 hours on the water).

We arrange events, fire-walking, all-day braais and beach bashes are back to back at the bar. Or get a Body Massage - be it full or head and shoulders to ease away the working day.

Indoors, aside from our, unique wide-open views of the water we offer jacuzzis, pamper zones and games rooms.

Our accommodation is diverse with different configurations suitable for visitors be they couples, families or groups. There is our waterfront house, alternatively apartments large and small, each of which boast vast water views as well as water access, (one of a handful of establishments that offers prize positions at the dam at no extra cost or effort)!

With the recent respite of rain the water filling Lake Deneys is brimming! Gulls, terns; fish-eagles are among the 60 water bird species which populate the dam and counting. They're in their element as the ecology favours their breeding and eating patterns. And fishing is rife!

Simply walk down to our beautiful gardens and into the park to fish, sun-bathe or swim, pick-nick or boat - go island spotting (as they pop out of the water). Take a cruise and chill out on a new island which is normally submersed!

Leave from our property and return to a neighbouring marina within walking distance. (We'll take care of the heavy stuff or you can be ferried back with the skipper or driver.) Have a braai while you watch the yachts sail by.

Cozy Corner
Ideal for couples, this corner apartment offers an intimate, double bed-room (self-catering). Strictly for two's Cozy Corner is available with its own, inter-leading jacuzzi room, with retractable roof, and bush shower and a 180 degree view over the water.

Pamper yourselves for the whole weekend or add Sunday to your stay (see our specials). Enjoy a double bedroom with flatron TV and kitchenette with adjoining bathroom. There are two verandas, each overlooking the shoreline. One has a common access but a kettle braai and cute, two-seater bench-table is supplied for your exclusive use. The main dining area is located in the jacuzzi room at a wide window which overlooks the water.

Catering for bigger groups, Tree Tops is another apartment (one flight of steps below Cozy Corner), with a bird's-eye view of the Dam, boasting a jacuzzi lolling over the lip of Lakeview. It has two to three, double bedrooms (with two bathrooms en-suite), plus spacious lounge and open-plan kitchen with sleeper nooks for the kids. It is ideal for a family or group of intimate friends getting together to chill together in their own, private facility.

The Penthouse
Larger parties are ideal for the Penthouse (minimum four adults) the penthouse apartment is a large, three-double bed-roomed flat on the third floor (there are some steps to climb but the views are worth it). In addition there is a grand, open-plan lounge-dining-room; expansive bar and games room; basic kitchen; sleeper nook for the kids and a separate, Jacuzzi room.

Here your party will enjoy the luxury of having the whole 220 square meter apartment to yourselves and all the facilities will be available, if you wish, for your private use (self-catering).

They all have DSTV or open view and our ladies bar at the Sisters Dam Pub has full on DSTV premium and Wi-Fi.

At least two-night stays are preferable for maximum enjoyment, however, high season gives preference to 4-nigh bookings at standard rates.

Get a taste of country life by visiting a variety of local clubs, restaurants and working marinas within walking distance, which attract Africa's biggest inland regattas and, of course, a  bird-watchers paradise with two other islands (as well as UJ Island) now rising above the water's surface - ideal breeding grounds for waterbirds, including Terns and flamingos (if we get lucky this season)!

So, take a birding trail, visit the Croc Ranch, cycle the shores or view the local motorbike museum and Khoisan ruins.
