About Nyl Retreat

Need to retreat and recharge your mind and spirit? Nyl Retreat, a four-star, self-catering country retreat, situated 9km from Modimolle (Nylstroom) makes an excellent break-away destination from the busy city life. Enjoy fresh air, unbelievable sunsets and be entertained by the night call of the jackal and owls.

This perfect country getaway with style and comfort is nestled in the picturesque and malaria free Modimolle in the Waterberg region and is approximately 130km north of Pretoria (1½ hrs drive) easily accessed by a tar road. 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 braai’s, watch the incredible night sky and savour the heady scents and 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. Tea, coffee, rusks, soap, shampoo and body lotion are standard items in each unit.

These cottages are the family units, sleeping a family of four and consists of a large open plan, air conditioned sleeping area. The kitchen is fully equipped and has its own private braai area and a gas braai for breakfasts. Both cottages are equipped DSTV.

The 5 country-styled thatched chalets are situated in a large garden with beautiful trees. The chalets are cosy, uniquely decorated with artistically crafted wooden furniture to create a rustic effect. Four of the chalets accommodate couples, while the larger unit sleeps four (Unit No 5). Each chalet has its own private braai and view. To maintain the rustic effect these units are deliberately not equipped with TV’s. However communal TV is situated in “The Farm Shed” for the sports enthusiasts wishing to watch the urgent sport event.

The chalets have a pool separate from the cottages. Secure parking is provided. The pool is also unfenced; parents with children must please take note of this fact.

Attractions and Activities

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.

The Boma facilty is available for larger groups, which is perfect for a Traditional South African braai around a bonfire.

The Kingfisher call is a constant reminder of the rich birdlife of the bushveld and enthusiastic birdwatchers and nature lovers will have close encounters with birds. We are situated 24 km from Nyslvlei.

You will find hiking trails on the farm with Muffin as your guide. The abundant bird life adds to the charm. It's a wonderful hobby to walk about identifying trees and wild flowers.

The units are serviced lightly, daily- no servicing on public holidays.
