This small working farm offers great value for money and exceeds expectations. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and offers way more than expected. The owners are very welcoming and go above and beyond to ensure that you enjoy your stay. There is enough to keep you busy on the farm for a long weekend, or it would be a great base for a longer visit from which to explore the area.
Minor issue was that the units are quite close together so you can hear your neighbours, but the layout does make it possible for you not to see your neighbours. Will definitely be back.

One is always sceptical about pictures on a website and what you actually get. That was not a problem here, from the amazing communication from Laurene to arriving at one of the most picturesque places, beautiful lawns, beautifully decorated, to rooms that were absolutely perfect. When they say crisp white linen, that’s exactly what you get. A kitchen well stocked with every utensil, pot etc one would need. Braai areas are immaculate. All kinds of bird life and tranquility. One immediately relaxes. Would recommend them any time and we will certainly be back.

This is a very well kept self-catering facility in bungalows and cottages on farm property, with only seven accommodation units. The property is only an hours drive from Pretoria. The units are cleaned daily, but there are no other services available.

Nyl Retreat is for quiet relaxation. Activities on the property consist of swimming, walks, board games, as well as well equipped braai (barbeque) facilities in beautiful shaded gardens.

There are nature, golf and adventure attractions nearby.

Own transport is a definite requirement.

We will visit again.

Amazing weekend and what a wonderful stay. This is how I define rest…….peaceful and quiet. From our arrival I knew that I was going to love the place. Everything that they advertised was exactly the way it is. The service was exceptional and Rina and Sollie made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The unit was beautifully decorated, well equipped and pristinely clean and fresh! The grounds and gardens are well maintained. They have the most beautiful big trees and green grass. We were most fortunate to observe an owl pair and baby nestled in one of the tree holes. I felt like this was my home away from home I would definitely go back again.

If you want to break away from the rat race this ideal for you.Nice cottages,with soft green grass and shady trees on a farm.No noise except birds and your fan running in the cottage. Pool to cool you,not too far from Modimolle.

We have stayed at Nyl Retreat on 5 occasions and we will definitely use it as a stopover the next time we are in the area. The chalets are very well equipped, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The chalets look out onto green lawns and big trees. We were pleased to see that indigenous trees have been planted to replace the old exotics.We had friends travelling with us on this trip and they agreed that it is an oasis after a long day in the car. It is a gentle overnight stop before going back to the noisy, dirty cities. It felt as if our bush holiday was being extended. The hosts are friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Nyls Retreat is great value for modest rates

We stay at Nyl Retreat every time we are in the area. Comfortable, clean accommodation set in a peaceful garden. Great hosts. Quiet farm setting with good birding on site (including resident Spotted Eagle Owls) and in the area (Nylsvley).

Large and clean room. Beautiful garden. Great breakfast. Good hosts.

It was a perfect start of our holiday in SA!
Take care it takes some driving to nearby restaurants. Nylsvley NR takes also 30 min driving.

A well kept holiday venue, with beautiful gardens, pools and hiking trails. The area is also quite safe and on the hiking trails you are accompanied by 3 well mannered german shepard dogs. There are also covered parking and every chalet has its own braai. Rina and Solly managed the venue to perfection. The bird life are amazing and can be observed from your own veranda. It is also 11 km from the town Modimolle with all the mayor shops and restaurants. Cellphone reception is perfect. Please go and enjoy the fairies in the gardens.

Couple stayed 2 nights for break away from the city. Found it to be well run with friendly hosts (and a tiny Jack Russell) and extremely neat and clean property with shady trees and lovely grass. Did not use the pool as it was cold (Winter time, much hotter in Summer) but cottages have heaters and electric blankets. Take note that there is fundamentally nothing to do there except relax - they have a walk laid out on the property but it is a small working farm with cows and geese.

Mattresses were the best we have ever found in SC properties and deserve commendation.

The property has excellent security installations as well.

Well recommended and would make a good stop over for people wanting to visit Ramsar site Nylsvlei (24 kms away) for the birds in Spring.
