Escape to experience a unique water facing contemporary country Home in a Distillery on a game farm on the banks of South Bay on the Vaal Dam. Close to the Lake Deneysville Yacht Club, you'll love our cigar lounge, light, airy entertainment space and relaxing in our four waterfront suites. Inhale the changing moods of the waves, the call of the jackal and mongoose mischief. Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families with kids, friends and groups.
Disponible para huéspedes
We encourage guests to book the entire home, which has sleeping space for 16 guests. Each bedroom has its own separate entrance onto the patio, with views of the water. It has a well-equipped kitchen for self catering.
Fill our walls with laughter and create an authentic country experience by making the most of all our portion of the farm has to offer - the cosy cigar lounge and the light, spacious tasting room. We also offer a large braai on the patio area. Guests may enjoy a stroll down to the water's edge to enjoy the natural beauty of the dam water...

My motto is "Be Happy! Say yes to adventure!"
We love to travel. Living in beautiful spaces of a similar quality as our home is a non-negotiable factor in any trip we plan. We love to try delectable eateries, immerse in new cultures, and connect as human beings. Some of our favourite memories are of rollerblading in Central Park, revelling in the Ice Bar in Stockholm, cycling in Denmark and glimpsing Sai Baba in India.
In turn, we love to chat to travellers within our beloved South Africa. From the grandeur of the Drakensberg Mountain Range to the colourful minstrels carnival in the Cape, from chocolate and wine-pairing in Stellenbosch to the characteristic roar of the white lion, we are certain you will create that perfect memory.
We hope our homes will be bases where you can relax, rejuvenate and re-energise. Our home in Hurlingham (Airbnb listing Light Spacious Sandton Family Home) is within three kilometres of the Sandton Business Centre and Nelson Mandela Square and is in a secure boomed-off suburb where you will meet our neighbours running and cycling at sunrise and sunset, while children play in the park. There are delicious restaurants in our area. We find it easy to uber to South African theatre in Montecasino, or to explore the Cradle of Mankind. We are close to the Gautrain Station from where you can hop onto our Big Red Bus to ride to the famous Vilakazi Street, home to Bishop Desmond Tutu and the Mandela Family.
Our contemporary country homestead on the banks of the Vaal Dam is set on a broader game farm - the perfect place to soothe one's soul and earth in African soil while engaging in water activities on fresh, clean water.( Airbnb listing Villa on Vaal Dam Water's Edge)
