This is your perfect home from Home. No other words can describe the feeling in this Old style, Beautifully furnished Guesthouse situated on the edge of the magnificent Gariep Dam in Oviston.

The guesthouse consists of a lovely Lounge, TV Lounge, Spacious Dining area. 24 hour Tea/Coffee station, Patio with Braai Area and fully stocked Bar.

We offer single, double and family rooms and you are able to have the option of B&B or Dinner & B&B or Self-catering.

Charlotte, Georgina both Queen beds and Beatrice 2 Singles sharing 2 Showers / Toilets. Florence, Queen bed, Small Lounge and Shower en-suite. Olivia has a queen-sized bed and the bathroom is across the passage.

The open space and views out over the dam provide an incredible sense of peace to those prepared to venture here, seemingly in the middle of nowhere (although Bloemfontein is but two hours away).

If you want quiet, chilled water filled adventure, or the simplicity of days spent on a boat with little other to worry you than reeling in a fish within the peace of a nature reserve, then Oviston is a discovery that you might not be willing to share with your friends.

The dam is over 100 kilometres in length and, at its widest, 15 kilometres across with a surface area of over 370 km². It is also the largest storage reservoir in the country. Oviston Nature Reserve is one of three nature reserves that surround the dam, the other two are Tussen-die-Riviere (between the rivers) and the Gariep Nature Reserve.

Families are spoilt for choice with loads of popular things to do including sunset cruises, swimming, tennis, golf, trampolines, bowls, mini golf, sailing, power boating, canoeing, skiing and angling. And there’s even Walk the Wall, an interesting tour through the Gariep Dam wall and down to the bedrock – an incredible engineering achievement.
