This has to be the best location in Parys and along the river. The room that I was allocated was right at the back so it did not have a view. I was concerned about the small parking space allocated for the three back flats but the hosts graciously offered complementary secured parking in the front garage area. Great quality...

Lovely clean room with stunning view of the river. Friendly hosts. Didn't have breakfast but it looked delicious! This is the second time I have stayed here and both times were great! Very well priced compared to some other so-called 'luxury' establishments in Parys which are far from luxurious! Will definitely be back again.

With the river in sight, beautiful decor and a practical setup this is the ideal accommodation if you want a break. With the way it is setup, the self catering unit for almost invites you to stay home, rather than explore Parys, with the great social areas. The kitchen and living room is open plan, and sliding doors open all...

We spent one night at Mistique Waters, wish we could have stayed longer! Right on the river, very peaceful, very clean and friendly owners. Room matched the pictures that we had seen advertised. Would love to come back during summer time to make full use of the balcony and pool!

Our room had a beautiful view of the river, with a small balcony. The room and bathroom was very clean. We also enjoyed the breakfast, which was freshly made and delicious. Would definitely stay here again!

Spent one night in rooms 2 and 3 which both overlook the street and Vaal River. The breakfast good. Rooms very clean. Would like to spend one or two nights more at Mysique Waters Guest House. The self-catering units look interesting. The artworks in all the rooms beautiful, particulary enjoyed the paintings in the breakfast room and Wisteria Room. Would...

This is by far the best guest house in Parys! It's right on the river and within walking distance to the antique shops and the restaurants. The hospitality is absolutely amazing and the breakfast truly filling and tasty. We were in the White Orchid Room with a balcony...we watched the Sun go down. The room is spacious and the bathroom...

My husband and I visited Parys and booked at Mystic Waters for 2 nights, we had booked through an agent and they had allocated us a room overlooking the garden, which was very nice. After chatting to the owner at breakfast on our first morning (she wasn't there when we booked in) she suggested that she show us one of...

Beautiful flat with attention to detail: arrived on a cold, wet night & the welcoming sherry was a lovely gesture. Lovely view of the river right across the street; safe parking; close to restaurants. Really can't fault this unit. The steep staircase might be a problem for some. Wish we could've stayed longer.
