Melody Hill Retreat

A unique get-away in the Magaliesburg. Ideal for groups, workshops and retreats, family gatherings, get-togethers and dinner parties. A wonderful free-flowing design. Simple, yet comfortably styled to suit the country.
With its high ceilings and spacious rooms, Melody Hill Retreat has the security and facilities of a private weekend villa. Offering a beautiful location to spend a few days throughout the year. Swimming pool and shady trees keeping you cool in summer, wood burning fireplaces and warm wooden floors - cosy in winter. The villa features a main house with two bedrooms, a large kitchen, scullery, lounge, dinning room, balcony and covered veranda. Adjoined to the main building are three more bedrooms, with another three located in an adjacent building and the yoga studio nearby. The villa overlooks the pecan-nut orchard, facing North-West along the Magalies River valley.
The country-house was designed and built using reclaimed wood and windows - moulded to the setting and the materials. What was originally a barn-style, family-farmhouse, has grown and evolved to suit the needs of the groups we host. It has been a wonderful journey, full of partnerships, friendships, memories and growing. With each new group, since we started hosting guests 15 years ago, Melody Hill Retreat has become more established as the perfect country-side retreat. Our regular guests and loyal clients will know that the venue is constantly improving and although rustic, there is something of a unique, personal touch that can be hard to fins elsewhere.
