“Gorgeous place 2 min from the Lion Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2011

We found this place as it was 2 minutes from the Lion Park that we wanted to visit in order to play with the lion cubs (great experience). This bed and breakfast is so well run and absolutely spotless. This is more like a luxury 5 start guest house. We took two rooms and each one was designed more beautifully than the next. Breakfast was a very large selection and again way beyond expectations. The premises are safe and gorgeous.

This upmarket guesthouse is situated close to Clearwater Mall, the turn off is from Beuers Naude (on a gravel road app 3 km in) on a hill - with beautiful gardens and luxury rooms. It has wide open spaces, swimming pool, cozy breakfast room. Our room for the night as very spacious and equipped with just the best - the decor was of high standard and so was the linen - interesting bathroom, complete with toilet, basin, bath, shower plus a shower area outside (I suppose it could work for a summer morning). The breakfast was good and the service from the owners excellent - very hands on. there's a shuttle bus if you have a wedding to attend at Tres Jolie wedding venue (about 5 km away)... All in all a good stay!

I recently stayed at Nice by Nature for just one night when I attended a friend's wedding nearby. Why I have given the "location" such a low score is purely for the reason that I am a Johannesburg local and I wouldn't stay in the area in general if it weren't for the wedding, but in terms of the "wedding mile" the location was perfect.
But, in general, I loved the place. The grounds were beautifully kept, there's a pool and tennis court and I felt like I was on holiday, despite being a mere 30-40 minutes from home.
I LOVED the room. It was so cute and quirky and had anything one would ever need in a hotel room. The outdoor shower was a great gimmick as was the bath in the middle of the room. It was spotless, too.
The service was outstanding. Shelley has really picked a great team, each one of them friendly and efficient. And the roaming chickens, chicklets and cats give the guesthouse a real homely feel.
I wish I had stayed longer than the one night, I would have like to have had the chance to enjoy the place a bit more.

I stayed with the folks from Nice by Nature for a week, while working at the close-by Monash South Africa campus.
They really took a lot of effort to make sure I had what I needed: making sure I ate, checking that I was happy with my room, encouraging me to relax in the lounge, play (or ignore) with their pets and animals, and roam the property, AND drove me to and from work every day. I also enjoyed dinner with Shelley and her teenage daughter, which was just lovely (having been away from home several weeks by then, and missing my own family).
Would not hesitate to recommend: especially the private outside shower (felt totally decadent having a hot shower in the cold autumn night air).
