Though we all have been affected by the ordeal of COVID-19 - to some degree - the world will recover from this global disaster. We do not know how long this may take, but, from what we have witnessed, we as a country will stand together and do what needs to be done! One thing we are sure ofwe are by your side and as ready as ever to create special memories with you on your next visit! Let’s look back on some of the memories we have already made together and see how we are working towards creating even more spectacular ones going forward.


We are super-excited to share the latest happenings, at your home-away-from-home, with you. But first, here are few things to remember about your favourite 'Slow Town' Resorts: We have a famous weekly Meet and Greet braai, that has become a firm favourite with guests; and our wonderful team will always go above and beyond to make you, and all our guests, feel welcome and ‘at home’.

We’ve been hard at work and we hope you enjoy reading all about the shenanigans we’ve been getting up to.

VRS COVID-19 Shareholder Notice

We would like to extend our gratitude to every Shareholder, as well as to South Africa as a nation, for heeding the call of President Cyril Ramaphosa on the eve of the nation address in relation to the COVID-19 lockdown and restrictions. We, as the Managing Agent of your preferred holiday destination, would like to thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to navigate this pandemic.

A message from Marjorie Forssman, Managing Director of Vacation Recreational Services:

“Our commitment to providing an environment to create everlasting memories for all our Shareholders and guests remains at the forefront of our mission. In light of the current COVID-19 situation, VRS is implementing viable management solutions for your home-away-from-home to ensure the health and safety of you and your families for when you can enjoy your holidays once more.

Kindly note, in compliance with government regulations and our own policies and procedures that your 'Slow Town' Resorts will remain closed to the public until it is deemed appropriate, by government, to return to normal operations. That being said, we want you to know that we are missing the sight of all your lovely families arriving in Reception and the happy sounds of your holidays unfolding! We are eagerly awaiting, and we know you are too, the day when we are able to open our gates once more; returning to a time where you may relish every moment at your 'Slice of Sedgefield and Swartvlei' a safe and relaxing environment.

As our further commitment to you during these trying times as we are sure you are looking forward

VRS Options


VRS Options has been made available to our Shareholders to deposit the week(s) which have been lost, due to the nationwide lockdown and/or the extended closure of your 'Slow Town' Resorts in return for tokens to the full value of the respective week.

Please visit VRS Options, bank the stay you can no longer occupy and retrieve your tokens, to be used for a future Resort-stay. A small Exchange Fee is the only payment required to open the possibilities of a multitude of Resorts to you. While we understand this means you might not receive an equivalent stay at your 'Slow Town' Resorts for a future date, we are sure this gesture, of an alternative holiday for your family, will result in many cherished holiday memories.

Vist VRS Options

Our thoughts and prayers are with each Shareholder, as you manoeuvre through these trying times. Please do not hesitate to reach out to VRS Property Admin, should you require further information.

Pride News

We are well aware of and sensitive to the impact of the current state of national disaster, but in our role as ‘caretaker’ of your your 'Slow Town' Resorts, we understand that our monthly obligations – such as municipal charges, rates and taxes, administration, Resort maintenance – remain payable; and are necessary in order for us to ensure that we are able to welcome you back to your beautiful 'Slow Town' Resorts as soon as possible.


We would like to thank all those Shareholders who have continued to pay their levies, especially those who have paid even though they, sadly, lost the use of their week this year, due to the COVID-19 situation. 


This is a Team-'Slow Town' Resorts match
and we need each one of our Shareholders,
at our side, in the line-up.

We thank all Shareholders for your continued support in ensuring the upkeep of your 'Slow Town' Resorts at this time.


Don’t forget to give us a like and keep up-to-date with all the happenings in and around your “Home-Away-From-Home”.

Check in, share your photos and videos with us, and take a moment to see what we are up to. We adore hearing from you and all of our guests!

Animal Spotlight

There are numerous animals which can be found at and around our Resorts - such as Vervet monkeys.

Please do not feed them – rather admire them from a distance and allow them to remain wild and weary of humans.



These adorable, yet defensive, birds can be found all around our Resorts. Growing to around 45.5cm in height, they can be distinguished by their long legs, brown-and-white speckled feathers, large round head with big yellow eyes and short beak. The Spotted Thick-Knee is actually nocturnal and feeds on insects, small mammals and lizards. They nest on the ground – so be mindful of where you walk, as they are known to peck intruders who wander too close.

More Resort News

The Quad Train was introduced towards the end of 2019 and has quickly become a highlight for our youngest guests. PS. 50% of all funds, generated through the Quad Train rides, are donated to African Blessings. We are so proud to be able to support African Blessings through our initiative – and have fun while doing it!

Our treasured Housekeeping team have been participating in regular training sessions, which focus on attention to detail. We have noticed that their standards have risen higher and higher after each session.

Our team are also being taught to deep clean carpets and tub chairs, polish stovetops and plates, properly clean curtains and how to re-stuff scatter cushions.

We believe that our Kiosk is equipped to provide real convenience, better than ever before! We now offer so much more than just the basic necessities.

New additions like frozen vegetables, readymade pies, ice-cream and a wider variety of sweets, toys and handbags now await your shopping pleasure. Be sure to pop in when you visit us again.

If you are looking for the freshest meals and friendliest service then look no further than our Restaurant and Bar. We now have a brand new, vibrant menu to showcase our delicious meals.

We highly recommend “Death by Ice-Cream and Chocolate Sauce”, because of Selina’s secret homemade chocolate sauce.

Special Occasions and Fun Days
We love creating the environment for holiday memories that will last a lifetime – especially for our youngest guests. Our December School Holidays were jam-packed with fun, laughter and sunshine. Our exceptional recreation team planned and executed a wonderful holiday programme, which all of our guests were invited to partake in. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Unfortunately, Santa’s sleigh broke down on his journey to “Slow Town” - luckily he had a backup quad bike to deliver Christmas goodies to our guests. Santa and his happy little elves entertained our guests by delivering gifts and Christmas wishes, while playing festive music. The joy and happiness radiating from the faces of our guests was a blessing we will never forget!
Valentine’s Day was such a memorable occasion for all of us! Units were decorated with love-themed goodies and love was sprinkled around every aspect of the Resorts. Our recreation team planned a host of fun and games for all of our guests to participate in. We even had a special Valentine’s Day hamper available for those who “forgot” about this ultra-special day. We love going over and above with these special occasions!
