Melody Hill Retreat
Melody Hill Retreat is a 2-hectare country estate set in a secluded pecan-nut orchard, on the banks of the Magalies River. This river-side property is situated in a valley that boasts a unique ecosystem teaming with birds and indigenous plant life. The home of Nag-apies, Porcupines, Vervet Monkeys and Hornbills. In summer the mature pecan trees create a lush green forest canopy, during winter the sunlight streams in through the bare trees, and in between, spring and autumn offer up all of their wonderful colours.
Melody Hill offers a peaceful and tranquil setting for mind, body and soul integration. Total harmonious relaxation for the body, mind and spirit. Melody Hill has four venues, a large villa, a smaller villa and two cottages. The venues can be booked seperately or used in conjunction. Our grounds and facilities include a studio, swimming pool, labyrinth, river, orchard, dam, vegetable gardens and beautiful buildings, designed and built by us with love and passion over 25 years.
The close proximity to Johannesburg, Pretoria and Rustenburg makes a two or three night stay easily manageable. The route from Johannesburg and Pretoria passes through the scenic landscape of the Cradle of Humankind. Come and experience a setting in harmony with its stunning environment!
