Hi to all readers.

I just want to take this opportunity to thank Nice By Nature owners and staff for one of the best weekends ever.

We had our RC Drift Nationals at Nice by Nature and we had about 50+ people at the event. The owner went out of his way to accommodate all of us and he custom build a 120 square meter track just for the event and it was assume.

We had 11 guys that flu up from Cape Town that competed in the event. The people of the guest house collected them from the air port as they have their own shuttle service.
The service from all the staff was excellent and the even catered for the halaal people. The food was the best ever.

They even got in a day spa with massages and other treatments for any one that was at the guest house. They had fun for the ladies in bead work classes.

I would recommend this place to any one that wants to run a business conferences or even team building events. This place is also suitable for parties and small weddings.

Thanks to the Nice by Nature Guest house for a wonderful exceptions.

We will be back

We found this place as it was 2 minutes from the Lion Park that we wanted to visit in order to play with the lion cubs (great experience). This bed and breakfast is so well run and absolutely spotless. This is more like a luxury 5 start guest house. We took two rooms and each one was designed more beautifully than the next. Breakfast was a very large selection and again way beyond expectations. The premises are safe and gorgeous.

I recently stayed at Nice by Nature for just one night when I attended a friend's wedding nearby. Why I have given the "location" such a low score is purely for the reason that I am a Johannesburg local and I wouldn't stay in the area in general if it weren't for the wedding, but in terms of the "wedding mile" the location was perfect.
But, in general, I loved the place. The grounds were beautifully kept, there's a pool and tennis court and I felt like I was on holiday, despite being a mere 30-40 minutes from home.
I LOVED the room. It was so cute and quirky and had anything one would ever need in a hotel room. The outdoor shower was a great gimmick as was the bath in the middle of the room. It was spotless, too.
The service was outstanding. Shelley has really picked a great team, each one of them friendly and efficient. And the roaming chickens, chicklets and cats give the guesthouse a real homely feel.
I wish I had stayed longer than the one night, I would have like to have had the chance to enjoy the place a bit more.

We visited Nice by Nature a year later and was surprised by all the new developments.
A stunning new indoor venue next to the river and a brand new tar surface for 1:10 scale radio control drift cars.
We had our Round 5 of the Gauteng RC Drift Championship there in May 2013, and will return in July for an indoor carpet event in the new lapa.
Charl was once again the perfect host, providing warm fires and coffee in the morning, followed by delicious lunch and drinks.
My two sons played around the whole day in the beautiful surroundings and my wife enjoyed the scenery and fresh air.
Thank you very much for all the effort you always put in and for your friendliness.

Nice by Nature was the venue chosen by the SA 1:10 Scale Radio Controlled Drifters for Round 2 of the championship on the weekend of 22, 23 & 24 November 2014.Our Cape Town friends were collected from the airport on Friday, and the Rustenburg and Gauteng competitors arrived in the afternoon.Everyone received a warm welcome and settled in quickly, the staff always lending a helping hand and going out of their way to assist with the cleaning of the track, bringing tables, chairs , shade etc.
Saturday & Sunday lunch was prepared and served next to the track, breakfast was great and the Saturday evening braai was awesome.The rooms, bathrooms, bar and restaurant was clean and pleasant, and the scenic river, hills and animals all contributed to the sense of being welcome.We will have Round 2 of the SA RC Drift Championship 2014 there again, as well as a few Rounds of the 2014 Gauteng RC Drift Championship.My wife and two sons always look forward to going there, the perfect weekend away for a family and friends.A big thank you to Shelly, Charl, Henry and staff for a fantastic weekend, 5 star food, accomodation and facility!!!

This is a private estate turned into guesthouses. The location is lovely, surrounded by cows, pigs, ducks and bunnies. The feeling is quite artistic as there are examples of Shelley, the owner's, creative artwork. Her stunning mosaic tables of African flora and fauna could be easily marketed. That same taste is shown in the guest rooms.(Even the floors in swirls of earthtones are beautiful) Rooms are large, nicely decorated with a wonderful bathroom complete with great tub, inside and outdoor showers. They could accommodate a family. There is a huge swimming pool on this lush property. The breakfast is perfect and the suppers were had, especially the chicken dish cooked by Connie, could rival any fine dining establishment. The manager as well as the owner Charl is very willing to chat to you and make your stay very enjoyable. They are relaxed and very helpful. Because you are outside of the city, there is no fear of crime. We went to Soweto and that is must-see for any traveller to this part of the country. Nice by Nature was a great place to stay and we thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing sojourn in lovely digs with fine hosts. Also, William who drove us around and oversaw the property was a great asset. Thanks all!
