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.
