Like a moored ocean liner, The Vaal Lookout guesthouse graces the shoreline of the pristine Vaal Dam, in the watersports resort of Deneysville. We are just an hour drive from Johannesburg, we are approximately 120 m from the water’s edge and our venue commands spectacular views of the dam and passing pleasure craft.
Established in the late 1930’s, when the Vaal Dam was built to serve the water needs of Johannesburg, the village is a mecca for the serious yachtsman, water skiers, jet skiers, canoeists, fishermen, bird watchers and astronomers. Village amenities include two modern supermarkets, liquor stores, three excellent butcheries, a dry cleaner, a hardware store, a chemist, post office, a DVD store, art and antique galleries, pubs, restaurants and a filling station.
The Vaal Lookout is designed to serve the needs of tourists, the corporate sector, watersports enthusiasts and those wanting a peaceful weekend retreat. It also makes a perfect base for visiting members of the horseracing fraternity, with the Vaal Racecourse being only 20 minutes away.
Guest accommodation comprises of five luxury double suites, each with a sumptuous en-suite bathroom. Two of the four spacious upstairs bedrooms provide family accommodation for up to six guests. The downstairs suite has a shower only and is designed to meet the needs of senior citizens, with its own kitchenette. Separate from the main house is Waterloo Cottage, which is a small self-catering unit, which can sleep up to four guests.
Providing all the extra touches that distinguish the finest guesthouses of the world, The Vaal Lookout has a library and TV lounge, with the full range of DStv channels. Guests can relax in club chair comfort, enjoying a magnificent view of the sparkling waters of the dam or watching a DVD selected from our extensive library.
