Vaal Waterfront, penthouses, fully equipped, self-catering and catered-for accommodation at Deneysville, straddling the Gauteng-Free State border, 60 mins from Jhb, 90 minutes from Pretoria.

We offer a variety of accommodation configurations suitable for visitors be they couples, families or groups. This is at our waterfront house, apartments and caravans 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 water brimming again following soaking rains Lake Deneys is full! 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.

Tree Tops
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). We have three double bedrooms. Bathroom facilities include three toilets, two showers and a corner bath with a prized view overlooking the water - there is also a private sleeping nook so everyone can enjoy their own space.

The Villa
The Villa is a stunning, spacious, free-standing, double-story house on the brink of the dam. Four, double bedrooms, each with water views and their own, expansive bathrooms (two en suite), guarantee privacy within the realm of your own family setting. A studio serves well for kids as do sleeper couches if need be.
There is air-conditioning throughout as well as open-plan lounge, dining-room and private bar with plunge pool for your exclusive use leading off a wide, elevated verandah, overlooking evergreen lawn and the blue waters of the deep dam.

Again pool table, darts, volley- and basket-ball can be provided at a small, additional cost to keep the kids busy when they are not frolicking in the pool or boating and bathing along the bay..

All units have waterfront access for fishing and boat-launching facilities are available as additional options. The grounds are secure and provide ample space for children to play. Parking for cars, trailers, boats, quads are available while private garages are available on request for an additional daily fee.

Each unit has unique offerings which may or may not be included in your package so please check our specials including: private jacuzzis with retractable roof, for sun bathing or star gazing (optional) and plunge pool (private and for your exclusive use). They all have DSTV and have either air-cons to fend off the effects of this year's sizzling summer or fans in well ventilated rooms. Built-in-braai-come-fireplaces accompany each unit tool.

Each unit has options for additional add ons: to keep the kids busy at night like your own pool table, darts, table tennis, basket ball, swing ball and the like (Wi-Fi on request). (On booking please check which facilities can be matched with your unit of choice and budget.)

Two-night stays are preferable for maximum enjoyment, however, one-night stays can be negotiated.Shops, bottle stores, bakery and butcheries available for your convenience.

Get a taste of country life by visiting a variety of local restaurants and working marinas within walking distance, which attract Africa's biggest inland regattas and, of course, we have our up-coming festival in October... watch this space.

Alternatively, take a birding trail, visit the Croc Ranch, cycle the shores or view the local motorbike museum. Maybe try your luck just down the drag at Emerald Casino (30km away) or visit Ascot on Vaal racecourse (just 25km away).

  • Interesting Place Accommodationdetails
    Why is your establishment interesting?
    Detail description : Our accommodation rests right at the waterfront, in Deneysville, the 'heart' of the Vaal Dam which is one of SA's biggest dams - we call it central SA's 'land-locked sea'! The Dam was constructed in 1938 and lies 77 km south of OR Tambo International Airport. Interestingly we overlook the wall and South Bay, the area which was formerly renowned as the water base for BOAC fin-planes, which landed in Deneysville prior to the construction of OR Tambo. The Waterfront at Vaal Delta is situated in the vicinity of the original, natural lake so although the water may recede during droughts (surrendering to wide, sandy beaches) it is nevertheless always there, a vast expanse of blue. And with access to it we are one of the only establishments in Deneysville offering 360 degree views from above as well as fishing, boating and lots more.
