Welcome to 12 on Vaal Drive Guesthouse

12 On Vaal guesthouse was established when Pim and Veronica Pieterse decided to upgrade their home to a 10 bedroom on suite guesthouse which they wanted to share with their guests.

The owners, Pim & Veronica ,will be your host and ensure that you have a pleasant stay and that you, your family and friends are well taken care of... After all, you might check-in as a guest but you'll leave as a friend.

The property is situated on the R57 (Golden Highway to Sasolburg) with the entrance on Vaal Drive. Hot water to the bathrooms is provided by three 300 litre solar systems and a 38 Kva diesel generator provides back-up power should there be a power failure.

Wi-Fi is available in all the rooms, bedrooms are equipped with air conditioners. The rooms are furnished with bar type refrigerators. 5 rooms are self catering and are fully equipped. the water supply comes from a borehole and is supplied through an automated filter and pressure pump system


During the latter part of 2019/2020 we installed a 88kw solar system with 80 panels and the latest lithium ion batteries ensuring a continuous power supply independent of the grid


A heated swimming pool with a thatch Lapa, is also available to our guests. The property has a 10,000 sq meter garden with covered parking for 10 vehicles.

A fully equipped beauty and hair dressing salon is available on the property. The beauty shop also specialises in permanent make-up and removal of unsightly tattoos. The latest permanent Eye brow technique is also done by the lead artist and so is Fibroblast technology now available!!

In 2019 /2020 a fully functional Hunting style Boma was build in order for Guesthouse visitors and for companies to host functions.

-New era for the race shop!!!!

Having spend some 30 odd years in motorsport, having supported various young drivers and seen some of them become South Africa champions, Hennie "G", Roman D Beer. I have decided the time has come to end my involvement in motor racing, the Lola t70 mk111b will from now on be campaigned by Larry Wilford from his race shop where many Wesbank Mobil 1 super V8,s are prepared. the space that was the Race shop on our premises will now be converted to a 2 bedroom,2 bathroom and large lounge with a open kitchen, this conversion should be completed by end July 2022.
