About Us

The main house offers a relaxing TV lounge, bar and a cosy dining room. There is also a lovely verandah for early morning breakfasts. The rooms are all tastefully decorated and situated around the gardens. Each has a spectacular view of the gardens and the surrounding valley. The gardens are a haven for birds. Louries, Hornbills, African Hoopoes, Hadedas, Cuckoos and Egyptian Geese are just some of the daily visitors. There is always a cacophony of bird sound in the trees.

The self catering lodge which sleeps up to 20 guests on a sharing basis overlooks the wedding venue and the Wilgerspruit.

The lapa and sala offer lovely shaded areas in the summer to enjoy a refreshing drink and from where the more athletic guests can be observed.

The boma offers an alternative to evening dining and is a popular venue for birthday / anniversary celebrations, karaoke evenings and team building. Many a potjiekos competition has been held here.

Nice by Nature boasts a beautiful wedding venue overlooking the Wilgespruit. The lovely chapel seats up to 100 guests and the reception room seats the same. This venue caters for all types of weddings and is suitable for smaller and second weddings.  Viewing is available at all times.

The staff at Nice by Nature have all been hand picked for their friendliness, big smiles and their ability to make guests feel at home. They are regularly re-trained in all aspects of the business and as a result are proud to be part of the Nice by Nature family.

Children are more than welcome.

We endeavour to make your stay with us as memorable and enjoyable as possible.

The Breakfast Bandit


The spit braai is all it should be. Intelligently seasoned to ensure that each retains its identity, the succulent pork, beef and lamb are exemplary.

The toasted noodle and almond salad with balsamic vinaigrette is particularly good with a mouthful of crisply braaied yet pink-on the-inside lamb.

A deceptively simple sweet-sour tomato smoortjie(smothering) elicits subtle hints of paprika and scorched pineapple from the pork.

The rare beef could be improved only by fresh creamed horseradish,

and the creamed spinach and potato bake are robustly honest.


Rating 5/5 for Venue

Posted on Hello Peter


I would just like to compliment Shelley of Nice by Nature Guest House on her outstanding hospitality during our recent stay over.

All rooms are immaculate, breakfast was superb and our hosts went out of their way to make the 5 of us who stayed over feel at home.

The view from the rooms and veranda are stunningly beautiful and makes one feel as if time stood still.

What fabulous hosts you are. Your B&B completely blew me away. The tasteful décor, gorgeous gardens and fabulous

accommodation all coupled with the awesome peace and quiet we experienced was a wonderful revelation.

I look forward to visiting you again soon.
