House | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 14
Desperate to escape the rat race, consider the Vaal. It's that closeness with nature, the gentle lull of the water as you drift off to sleep and the chatter of the birds at dawn that's bound to capture you and keep you coming back, year after year.
We love this destination it is an hour from Fourways. Our family holiday home is being made available as with teenage children suddenly we find that our weekends are filled with sport commitments and we don't get here as often as we would like.
This home is perfectly suited for great family get togethers and reunions with out of town/ country family and friends.Or even for two or three couples to get together and enjoy a weekend break. The house living area flows very well and is very spacious. Casual living furnishings are clean and comfortable yet nothing fancy or breakable.
Expatriates working in South Africa who enjoy a boating and country outdoor lifestyle will love this gem. Boating mecca on the Vaal River water - Regular readings taken of the river and available online.
A great get away from the city for all , bring your bicycles and or fishing rods and enjoy the freedom of big open spaces and long walks with birdlife.

The Gauteng region
It is usually only upon one's return to the big city, that one truly realises just how therapeutic it is to spend time along the Vaal in the close company of family and friends. Blessed with a wealth of natural beauty and an abundance of activities to choose from, the Vaal Meander is a true tonic for body and mind.
Vaal Meander hosts several sites of historical value. Capering through this peaceful countryside, it is hard to envisage the battlefields that marked this area during the Anglo Boer War of 1899 – 1902. The treaty that signified the end of this war, namely the Peace Treaty of Vereeniging, was also negotiated here. Our country's more recent history is also remembered through memorial structures such as the Sharpeville Monument, which was erected in remembrance of the 1960 Sharpeville massacre.
Also to be found on the beautiful banks of the Vaal are three excellent golf courses, namely the Emfuleni Golf Estate, the Maccauvlei Country Club, and Riviera on Vaal Hotel and Country Club. These golf courses allow fans to indulge in a round of their favorite activity while feasting their eyes on the natural beauty of the environment.
