Brakvlei House

Brakvlei House

Christiana Lodge is proud and excited to announce a new addition to their portfolio: Brakvlei.


hen the owner of the property next to Christiana Lodge put it on the market, we decided to buy it, rather than a new owner destroying our peace and tranquillity and our view onto the wetland.

The new house has an open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area and three bedrooms – two on the ground floor and one on the first floor.

Brakvlei can be booked on a self-catering basis (all three rooms), or the rooms can be booked individually on a B&B basis.

  • All the bedrooms have spacious bathrooms with free-standing baths, a separate shower and separate toilet.
  • The bedrooms on the ground floor both have doors opening onto their own private garden area.
  • The bedroom on the first floor has a balcony and beautiful views over the Brakkloof wetland area.
  • The style in both the lounge area and the bedrooms is similar to that of Christiana Lodge - contemporary and understated. We still believe that the style is in the simplicity.
  • The ‘lifestyle’ area consists of a huge ellipse-shaped pool, a large deck and a barbecue area. This area is also open for use by guests staying at Christiana Lodge.

We have decided to call this property Brakvlei. Christiana was the name of our grandparents’ farm in the Karoo, where we spent unforgettable holidays as children. Their next-door farm was called Brakvlei. As our property overlooks the Brakkloof Wetland area, Brakvlei seemed to be the obvious choice.
