Houseboats (Sleeps 4 guests ONLY)
Windsor on Vaal is 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 is on the Vaal River side of the peninsula.
The houseboats are moored in a private lagoon, separated from the main river by an 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 55km 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. We are also just a phone call away if you have any enquiries while on the houseboat.
No skipper's license required.
The houseboat you will be chartering will be a Leisureliner 260. These boats were designed by an Australian Marine Architect, Angelo Lavranos, and have proven to be very popular recreational vessel for self catering charters.
Apart from the regular optional extras listed below, our houseboat was customised for the ultimate luxury of our customers. It is equipped hand basin and vanity in the fore cabin, dimmer lights in fore cabin and saloon, aluminium blinds throughout, 6 speaker stereo radio/CD system, equipped for Garmin 178C GPS/fishfinder (optionally for rent) and a 50Hp Yamaha 4 stroke engine.
