The Casa Cara brand was born in 2012 with a small luxurious guesthouse in the small country town of Parys which is situated in the Free State province of South Africa. It wasn’t long before the guesthouse burst out of it seems and had to add additional accommodation. After the runaway success of this venture, a second guesthouse, Casa Cara Vaal Dam was opened on the banks of the Vaal Dam at Deneysville which is also in the Free State. By meeting the market need for spectacular accommodation at reasonable rates and backed-up by great customer service the two guesthouses blossomed. Thus, when a very special riverfront property became available on the Vaal River near Parys, Casa Cara grabbed the opportunity to grow their brand and offer further options to their established loyal clientele. After two years hard work on-site, Casa Cara is proud to announce their most impressive venue to date, the all-new Casa Cara Lodge an exclusive wedding venue which also features a children’s play park and pub style restaurant.
Melissa is the best guesthouse hostess we have ever had the privilege of working with. She accommodated our management team, meeting all our needs, providing perfect accommodation and great meals. We will never go anywhere else!Rick Scott
Casa Cara is just wonderful. They took great care of me and my family. We had a fantastic experience and would recommend them highly. The kids were so enchanted by the river, the fresh air, the animals and the open spaces that we hardly saw them. We are very lucky to have such a splendid breakaway right on our doorstep.Brent & Angela Boone
Marny did a great job in helping us plan our perfect wedding at Casa Cara Lodge. The food was excellent and our guests had a rip-roaring time. Thank you to all the staff that made our special day perfect.John & Karen Butcher
