History & Our Team Super-dedicated to You
Forest Edge was a concept developed by the De Bruyn family who had the land, originally used by the historic woodcutters from “Circles in the Forest” fame, rezoned for resort use. They started operating Forest Edge in the early 1990’s, originally with only 2 cottages built as replicas of the original gold-mining cottages of the Millwood Gold Rush.
Ronel Pieterse purchased Forest Edge mid-2005 and developed 3 more cottages and a main house with a reception, and removed aliens and planted an indigenous garden, before selling it in June 2016.
Amanda and Danie Jansen van Vuuren purchased Forest Edge in June 2016. Danie is an ex-“corporate animal” who saw the light and moved to Forest Edge. He managed large city-based corporates for more than 20 years, including leading marketing & eventing agencies and he will put these skills to good use at Forest Edge. Amanda owns a Group Travel & Eventing business; she’s using this experience to host some unforgettable boutique weddings & events at Forest Edge.
We’re a very small multi-tasking team of 5 permanent staff: managers Dries and Susan who man Reception, provide guest support, perform operational maintenance and quality assurance functions; house-keeper Sherine who lovingly tends the cottages & linen; groundskeeper & handyman Chris who looks after the maintenance, gardens, wood and water; and the owner Danie, who handles bookings, marketing, accounting, web development & strategy.
Please keep our small team size in mind to understand the context of our Terms&Conditions.
