About Die Opstal

Die Opstal is situated within walking distance of the Berg River and Bokkomlaan. It has two luxurious units that sleep eight and two guests respectively. Both units have their own private braai areas and parking, and there is enough parking area for two boat trailers.

The Flat has one bedroom with a double bed and a bathroom. There is a well-equipped kitchen with a microwave, hob, stove, fridge-freezer and a living area with a TV offering DStv. The Main House has four bedrooms with double beds, twin beds and a bathroom. There is a fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, tumble-dryer, gas hob and a lounge with a TV offering DStv. Both of the units are newly refurbished with a farm-style atmosphere. All the facilities that you will have at home are available, including DStv on request.

Velddrif brings to mind the Berg River, fishermen, bokkoms and beautiful beaches. It is one of the small fishing villages that dot this part of the forgotten West Coast, where a visitor is greeted with silence, the space to explore, and where time slows inexplicably.

          Die Opstal is a very nice place and will refer and recommendanybody if they heading that way, to Die Opstal. The house is very clean andeverything is accessible and also caters for the disabled person. Thesurrounding areas is also quite and I also had time to visit where they dobokkom as it is only a walking distance and you can also go on boat trips. Onour way home, the visibility of the pelicans on the dams was also nice to watch

          We had a very pleasant stay at Die Opstal. Everything neat and tidy. Big and comfortable living area. Loads of space for the kids. And Dalene was always willing to assist with information and advice about Velddrif. Baie dankie, Dalene!Kitchen might need a few things to complete, e.g. coffee plunger & tea pot.
