Awesome place, great location. Arrived at about 2pm, taken to my awesome room, had a quick dip in the pool, very refreshing! I spent 1 night, had to leave early so I unfortunately didn't have a chance to enjoy the food or the view of the restaurant!

We've been traveling to Nelspruit for more than six years and have stayed in most of the guest houses. La Roca is hands down our favorite, to the point where we have arranged our weekend trips around when they have availabililty. It is a little oasis of peace and charm. It is perfectly situated within the city, but you feel like you are in a forest when you walk through the grounds. Really quiet and peaceful.This is a perfect place for anyone traveling alone or as a couple, and for families. The owners, Rob and Marlea, have decorated the rooms with a funky, modern, international flare. Consider staying in the house on the grounds (it is a stand-alone house) with a full kitchen, incredible deck that is like an extension of the living room and amazing sunset views, bunk beds for the kids, and a shower indoors and out! Even if you don't stay there - ask to see it - it is incredible! Besides the stand-alone house, the Butterfly (Asian themed), Moroccan, and Cottage rooms are our favorites. They also have GREAT bedding, the kind where you don't want to get out of bed for a very long time because the sheets and pillows are so nice.

We really enjoyed our stay at La Roca - home away from home fealing. Great hosts, they really took care of all our needs. Fantastic room, we even had our own patio outside overlooking the nature reserve. Quiet, well managed, delicious food and very comfortable accommodation. Situated close to town, and a big bonus for us was the constant wi-fi in the room. Absolutely no complaints, will recommend and can't wait to visit again. Well done guys !!!

The managing owners charm and attention to detail is only exceeded by the lovely room designs and setting overlooking a wild conservancy area. It sure doesn't seem like an in town stay which was perfect for us as we were there for over 1 week recuperating from surgery in nelspruit. Super breakfast, lovely staff and really beautiful rooms. We had a tub with a view, an outside shower , big flat screen and full kitchen! We stayed in town on another visit at a hotel and it was awful compared to this. We shall always return to la roca! Try it- youll like it

This weekend was our second stay at La Roca and it didn't disappoint. The rooms are clean and the beautifully finished bathrooms are immaculate. We love discovering what the theme will be for each room. Our first stay, under Sean's management, was Moroccan inspired, and best of all the room has it's own space and gate for parking. This time we stayed in a more African room. Each room had all the amenities. The pool area has an outdoor bar and a lovely view of the Nelspruit Nature Reserve. Best all of all we enjoy dinner or breakfast under the boma (thatched roof) area, which also overlooks the game reserve. Their breakfasts are always good and the ingredients used are always fresh and good quality. For dinner, they have two meals--one for adults and one for children.

Room Tip: If you want to eat dinner at the guesthouse on your first night, especially after driving from Preto...
