Melody Hill Retreat is a two-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 nagapies, porcupines, vervet monkeys, and hornbills. In summer, the mature pecan trees create a lush green forest canopy, and during winter, the sunlight streams in through the bare trees, and in between, spring and autumn offer up all of their wonderful colors. 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 separately or used in conjunction. The grounds and facilities include a studio, swimming pool, labyrinth, river, orchard, dam, vegetable gardens, and beautiful buildings, designed and built by them with love and passion over 25 years. The close proximity to Johannesburg, Pretoria, and Rustenburg make 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. With its high ceilings and spacious rooms, Melody Hill House has the comfort and facilities of a private weekend villa. Offering a beautiful location to spend a few days throughout the year. The swimming pool and shady trees keep you cool in summer, and wood-burning fireplaces and warm wooden floors keep you cozy in winter.

The villa features a main house with two bedrooms, a large kitchen, scullery, lounge, dining 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 northwest along the Magalies River valley. The country-house was designed and built using reclaimed wood and windows - molded 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 they host. It has been a wonderful journey, full of partnerships, friendships, memories, and growth. With each new group, since they started hosting guests 15 years ago, Melody Hill Retreat has become more established as the perfect countryside retreat. Their 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 find elsewhere.
