Description

Looking for that perfect getaway. Try a houseboat vacation on the Vaal River. We also have two self-catering Rondavels units that can accommodate four adults. We are situated on a peninsula in a dammed section of the Vaal River, also known as the Vaal Barrage. The peninsula has the Loch on the one side, and the Vaal River on the other. Cruise-N-Snooze houseboats and Rondavels units are on the Vaal River side of the peninsula.

The fully equipped luxury houseboats; rates starting from R1000 per night sleeps four people, and are moored in a private lagoon, separated from the main river by a 30mx20m island. Across from this private island stretches a 500m wide part of the Vaal River with Bird Island in between the banks. From here there is approximately 55 kilometres of navigable waters including the Loch and other tributaries, to be explored at your leisure. Before departing on your cruise, we teach you how to operate the houseboat and all the equipment on board. On board activities include fishing, bird watching, swimming, or just relaxing under the sun or starry skies. Places of interest on the riverbank include restaurants, bars, family entertainment venues, a casino, golf courses, spas, and etcetera.

The self-catering Rondavels offer an exclusive and serene getaway. It sleeps up to four or six people; one Rondavel has a queen-size bed and the second with two single beds. We supply an extra double bed mattress for two additional people. Separate enclosed toilet, shower and hand basin. Private entertainment area including braai facility, wash-up area and gas hob, overlooks Vaal River and the garden. Enjoy superb birding, water sports, fishing or simple relaxation. Boat launching facility available. Also ideal for Honeymoon couples and bridal photo shoots.

Cruise-n-Snooze attended a meeting with SAMSA on 16 February 2009 in which it was decided that SAMSA will issue self-drive houseboat operators with a letter exempting them from the requirement of having a 'skipper's license', until a formal system is put in place whereby a temporary certificate of competence will be issued before commencement of the cruise. This procedure still has to be formalized, but will probably consist of material that can be studied beforehand, and a written test. All this means is that we will continue with our normal briefing before your cruise, covering safety and conduct on the river, until this new evaluation system is put in place.

It was a very joyful weekend. I most certainly will book again and this time on the houseboat. Thank you, excellent.

10 April 2012

My two teenage children and I spent two nights aboard the boat, and had a fabulous time. The weather was especially kind which added to the experience. I will definitely do it again, and highly recommend this for a relaxing getaway.

11 April 2010

An ideal getaway for anybody who wants to relax and enjoy quiet and tranquillity at excellent value for money. We were welcomed by Ramond, and felt at ease from the start of our 3 night stay on the houseboat. It is your own choice if you want to stay on the houseboat for your entire stay, or if you would like to disembark and visit a restaurant or casino. Freedom to choose where to anchor and fish or sleep over made our stay even more enjoyable, because we were not restricted to other people's opinions on what we should do. Thanx Raymond, we will definitely recommend Snooze 'n Cruise to others, and will be returning to enjoy a few more restful nights on the river.

30 September 2009

We booked into the rondavel with the intention of angling in peaceful surroundings without being bothered by loud music, people that abuses alcohol and other anglers that cannot behave. Although some of this was found to be so I cannot say that all was to our satisfaction. Positive thoughts 1. The rondavels were clean and neat. The bedding were clean as well. 2. The island that we angled on were clean and spacious. 3. No other anglers were in the way and there was no way that you could be bothered. 4. The fishing went well and we caught carp sizes from 1 to 6 kg with the largest caught in the morning or after 6 at night. The carps has an excellent fighting spirit. 5. The breakfast that was given was well prepared and filling. 6. Mariana and Raymond did there best to make us feel at home. 7. None of our equipment got stolen after we left our equipment on the island for all these nights 8. No snags at all was found and a no amount of drift plants interfering with the lines. Negatives [1]. Angling windows a bit small due to boat activity on the river. (5-10am)(5-10pm).[2]. Distance from rondavel to island approximately 120 m.[3] The fact that you cannot prepare food on the island or in the boma area is a concern although not allowing it inside the rondavel is understandable. [4] The distance from the rondavel to the island made it a bit uncomfortable during the night to sleep due to equipment not being close by.[5]Big carp a serious concern when running with the drag due to boat activity as they do tend to go for the reeds on the other side of the river except at night or early in the morning. NB.WE WILL DEFINITELY GO BACK TO CRUISE N SNOOSE.
