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. The house is equipped with wifi so Netflix, Showmax and DSTV now are available 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 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.

      There were the most delightful touches, especially the water filter on tap and the tin of condensed milk.Useful and handy information available in a file assured a pleasant stay and highlighted places to explore. As a frequent visitor to Parys we found this very useful.

      We loved this cozy place. A cherry for the cold weather was a nice surprise. And the warm electric blankets was a treat. The fireplace made the place really special. And all the newest info of the town

      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 !
