About Gorgeous Gecko Guesthouse

Escape to the Gorgeous Gecko Guesthouse in the heart of the Waterberg bushveld. Be our guests in this tranquil world of luxury and comfort, just 90 minutes from Gauteng. Here, at last, you can forget the hustle and bustle of city life.

The unique and extraordinary finishes provide a feeling of exclusivity, while the manicured garden allows you to relax with a book in secluded corners. You can sun yourself next to the splash pool or surrender to bubbles in the spa bath. Warm bushveld hospitality awaits.

This spacious home includes a garden in the generously sized courtyard, comfortable lounge areas and a farm-style dining room. We offer a scrumptious traditional breakfast and on request, our chef will prepare you a savory bushveld dinner. Other facilities include a tea and coffee corner, DStv, video and DVD players in lounge areas. There is a secure parking area with remote-control gate.

Whether you are in Nylstroom to enjoy the unique Waterberg bushveld, on business or just passing through en route to the Kruger National Park, Polokwane or Lephalale, you are sure to have an enjoyable stay at the Gorgeous Gecko.

                          Words cant describe how much I loved this place. The environment, nature and surrounding, location, and the atmosphere. I loved it all. The inside of the place was clean and comfortable. The staff were amazingly friendly. I would recommend Gorgeous Gecko to anybody in need of a good rest.
