Come retreat in solitude in a very well secured, safe and clean environment.
At the end of the day guests can relax on their patio and anticipate the magnificent sunset; make a wood fire in their private lapa, watch the incredible night sky and savour the heady scents and wild night sounds of the bushveld.
Guests can expect luxury accommodations and warm hospitality along with peace and quiet. From your private accommodation, wake to the sounds of birds singing in the spacious, stunning garden with swimming pool. This is a paradise for nature lovers.
Nyl Retreat offers the guest a choice between the 2 luxuriously cottages and 5 thatched chalets that overlook the typical Waterberg bushveld. Each unit has been individually decorated and is equipped with quality mattresses, fine white linen and towels.
Relax at the pool in this quiet and tranquil setting or take a walk in the beautiful garden and our own walking trail, or meet up with the hosts and talk about the history of Nylstroom. Solly and Rina love people and guests often become friends and return year after year.
