About Kondensmelk

Kondensmelk is a beautiful restored "dorpshuisie" that sleeps up to eight guests. The home offers an authentic small-town experience and is located just three blocks from the beautiful Vaal River and a mere 300 m from the town's main road, with its antique dealers, gift shops and great eateries.

The house features original wooden floors and ceilings, and is decorated simply and tastefully, with lots of quirky touches. Accommodation is offered in three bedrooms. The main bedroom is very spacious, with a king-sized bed, French doors leading onto a small patio, and a brand new en-suite bathroom. Both the other bedrooms have a double and a single bed, sleeping 3 guests each. Room 2 and 3 share a shower and loo. The house also has a spacious living room with fireplace, a newly renovated kitchen and a wraparound veranda with a BBQ and patio furniture for al fresco dining. Off-street, undercover parking for two cars behind motorised gates is also provided.

The large stand boasts a typical small-town garden with lots of fruit trees and lawn for kids to run around on. Full bouquet DSTV (HD) and a flat-screen TV comes in handy on rainy or lazy days. A rather unique feature of Kondensmelk is the “Damcuzzi” - a small "farm dam” pool with inbuilt seating so that guests can relax by sitting in the water, enjoying a glass of chilled wine on hot summer’s days. The idea with Kondensmelk, is to offer an authentic platteland stay for city folk. Personal touches, like mini koeksister on the pillows and a tin of condensed milk for your coffee as a welcoming gift, add to the overall experience.

Family friendly: Ideal for a family of up to 8. The covered stoep, “Damcuzzi” and fireplace are all conducive to family fun and interaction. The large yard is fully fenced - house-trained pets are welcome.

      What a pleasant surprise. Being in the industry, one goes somewhere and arrive at the establishment looking for reasons not to stay. I was however pleasantly surprised and we had a wonderful time at Kondensmelk. I will definitely go back again.

      We loved our stay at Kondensmelk. Just the name itself will give you a pure indication of what to expect. This is a lovely old house and the small details added, makes it a memorable experience. The tin of kondensmelk as welcoming is a lovey thought and true to its name and Petro greeting us at the house ads a personal touch. Thank you Zelda, we had a wonderful time and would definitely be back !

      The attention to detail at Kondensmelk is something to behold. Being greeted by Petro at the unit was a friendly and great start. Such beautiful surroundings and the little details like a plunger, chocolates on all pillows....even dog treats for our canine family member...my only regret is not staying longer!!Thank you for everything - we will definitely be back....and SOON!!
