Self Catering Accommodation: Penthouses all round

Cosy Corner (Sleeps 2):
Ideal for couples, this corner apartment offers an intimate, double-room (self-catering).This apartment is available with its own inter-leading Jacuzzi room which has a retractable roof. It also has a bush shower and a 180 degree view over the water.

Enjoy a double bedroom with flatron TV and kitchenette, the bedroom also has an adjoining bathroom. There are two verandas each overlooking the shoreline, one has a common access with a kettle braai and two seater couch for your exclusive use. The main dining area overlooks the water and is located in the jacuzzi room.

Tree Tops (Sleeps 9):
Catering for bigger groups, Tree Tops is another apartment on the property with a bird's eye view of the Dam, boasting a jacuzzi, two to three double bedrooms (with bathrooms en-suite), plus spacious lounge and open-plan kitchen with sleeper couch for the kids. It is ideal for a family or group of friends getting together to chill out together in their own, private facility.

The Penthouse (Sleeps 10):
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 and a separate Jacuzzi room.

Here you will enjoy the luxury of having the whole 220 square meter apartment to yourself and all the facilities will be available, if you wish for your private use (self-catering). In addition to the three double bedrooms the 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 views of the water and surrounds are stunning and the apartment and kitchen is equipped with crisp clean linen and blankets, however kindly bring your own towels.

The Villa (Sleeps 9):
The Villa is a stunning spacious free-standing double-story house with four double bedrooms, each with water views and their own expansive bathrooms (two en suite), guaranteed 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 The Villa as well as open-plan lounge, dining-room and private bar. The villa has a plunge pool for your exclusive use leading off to a wide, elevated verandah overlooking evergreen lawn and the blue waters.


Facilities available are DStv (Compact) or we can upgrade (we supply the DSTV full package at an extra cost per day or you can bring your own box at no extra charge); a pool table and table tennis can be made available for you, if you wish to use them. We offer a newly built-in braai facility upstairs with potjie facilities and views of the tranquil gardens (which doubles-up as a wonderful fireplace with its proximity to the open-plan dining room / lounge!)

Alternatively, braai or picnic downstairs at the water (kindly bring along your own potjie pots as we have found guests like them cured in different ways!)
Our Comphy Caravans at the water's edge is a unique extension of facilities we can offer groups who wish to fish right at the water's edge. They are full equipped, fired up and ready to roll. Those fishermen, rowers or boaters in the party can park off at the shore and play all day, with the option of returning to civilization later, or alternatively enjoy night fishing with all the amenities laid on.

For the not so adventurous the Jacuzzi with a retractable roof (for sun bathing and star gazing) and a small wall heater for your comfort at night (petitioned by a one-way-glass, sliding picture door for your privacy) leads off the games room.

There is a charge for Jacuzzi preparation (chemicals, cleaning and heating for one session over your stay), so let us know if you wish to have it warmed up in time for your arrival. Thereafter, we provide you with the pay meter coupon numbers for you to punch in and use the Jacuzzi as often as you wish.

There is also a small usage fee for the pool table and accessories as well as the table tennis, for the duration of your stay with net, bats and balls provided. We will have this set up for you on the sunny enclosed balcony so you can play throughout your stay.

All of these are optional extras so if you do not wish to use them there is no extra charge. (We like to mention these extras so there are then no surprises!)


We are adjacent to the waterfront recreation grounds, there is a short 70 meter walk to the water and there are more braai facilities available there too. Access via the pedestrian gate for walks, bird watching or picnics, braaing and fishing is free of charge, however, the recreation grounds are controlled by our local council and there are charges (so you may be approached by a parks monitor over weekends).

There are also boat launch facilities and other fishing sites in the vicinity (if you are bringing along your boat) about 1km away there is a jetty. There is a charge for one car and boat for the entire weekend, launch as often as you like. For those interested in a cruise this can be arranged on a cat or a yacht, charters are available.

The complex Lakeview is fenced and gated and most secure so bring along bikes and quads if you so wish. And we are pet friendly.

If you have any questions feel free to call - bring along your towels and provisions although we have pubs, restaurants and marinas within walking distance and shops, butcheries and bottle stores for your groceries in the village. And we are just 30km from Emerald Casino / Ascot on Vaal racecourse.

So if you want to fish, boat, get together with friends and family or just chill do come along and spend some time at the water - the sunsets and moon rises are fabulous!
