Holiday Rental House
Kondensmelk is a typical “dorpshuisie” with quaint small town touches like a wraparound stoep and a small farm dam to cool down in during the summer months. Here you’ll find wooden floors and ceilings, quirky decor, comfy beds and a fireplace for chilly winter months. The owner loves to spoil her guests with small extras like a complimentary tin of Condensed milk for their coffee and mini koeksisters on the pillows. The garden is large, with many fruit trees and shady corners - perfect for kids of all ages. Satellite TV and a collection of board games take care of rainy/lazy days when you want to take a break from exploring the exciting little town that is Parys. The house sleeps up to 8 guests in 3 bedrooms (One bedroom is a family room with a double bed and two single bunk beds) Situate...Kondensmelk is a typical “dorpshuisie” with quaint small town touches like a wraparound stoep and a small farm dam to cool down in during the summer months.

This place is really the best place for a getaway not too far away from the city. Also definitely recommend if anyone is going through or any where near that area to stop past here, wow what a memorable place with such a great feel!

Parys is a short drive from Johannesburg, so this is a convenient visit. The home is self catering, but there is a more than adequate supply of things that you need (to cook, for instance). We bought a lot in Johannesburg which we took along,...More
