Our privately owned self catering guest house is set in the award winning 4 Star Hans Merensky Golf Resort bordering on the Kruger National Park – Phalaborwa, South Africa. Here you are offered an opportunity to play golf in the wild, go on safari, swim in your private pool under the African trees or relax on your patio while you watch animals go by. Kokobela meaning "Humble" is how you will feel spending some time in the African Bush, It`s truly a humbling experience.
The luxury thatched guest house is cleverly positioned to the side of the 7th fairway, blending into its surroundings allowing its occupants to feel at peace as part of nature. There is abundant birdlife, free roaming Impala, warthog, giraffe and other animals all around.
The kitchen, lounge and dining areas all walk out onto the outside pool patio which is only a few paces away from the 7th fairway. Half of the patio is covered by thatch and the other half is open which provide the perfect spot for sunbathing next to the private swimming pool which is cut into the patio. This is probably where you’ll spend most of your time when you`re not playing golf or out on Safari.
The dining area has a 10-seater wooden table. The fully equipped kitchen houses everything you would expect: an oven and hob with extractor fan, large fridge-freezer, microwave, toaster, kettle, etc. With plenty storage space and granite work surfaces throughout. There is a separate, out of view, scullery which houses a dish washer, washing machine and tumble dryer.
For your convenience a daily cleaning service is provided at no additional cost. There is no need to fuss over cleaning the braai (barbeque) yourself either as it will be cleaned for you as part of the daily service.
The house sleeps up to 8 adults. There are 4 spacious air-conditioned, on-suite bedrooms. All with king size beds and double wardrobes. There are 4 additional single bed mattresses if needed for children. Linen and towels provided.
3 of the 4 bedrooms walk out onto a wooden deck which stretches along the entire west side of the house. The 4th bedroom walks out to the fountain in the garden courtyard.
The bathrooms all have double vanities, a shower and a toilet. Two of the four bathrooms have a bath as well and one of these also walks out into an outside, secluded, shower. There is 1 three-seater sofa and 1 four-seater sofa in the lounge area as well as a big screen TV, DVD and CD player as well as satellite TV.
