Bergvliet was formerly a large farm owned by Simon van der Stel. The original farmhouse of Cape Dutch design still stands on a large property on the Western border of Bergvliet. The Bergvliet Farm, as it is known, is a very beautiful place with a small natural pond which is also a tiny bird sanctuary. The farm is also a favorite dog walking and running location. The original farm was made into a residential suburb for returning South African servicemen from World War II.
