Modimolle Funky Stay offers exactly what the name suggests – funky rooms, no frills, affordable overnight accommodation. The interiors of these “ultra cool” rooms are bright and colourful and has a fresh new take on giving guests a unique experience. The first 14 rooms that opened its doors June 2012, are part of Phase One, with plans to expand to a total of 20 rooms, with conference facilities to follow, as well as accommodation for larger groups. Modimolle Funky Stay is situated 4km outside of the well known town previously known as Nylstroom.
The rooms are located in A-frame cabins that fit in perfectly with the surrounding bushveld. The beautiful pond, that lies waiting upon arrival, is an attractive feature that attracts the prolific birdlife of the
Nylsvley wetlands. Modimolle Funky Stay is not just a comfortable overnight stop, but is also set in the midst of an abundance of activities for the adventurous. Everything is within a 20 minute drive’s radius – from zip-lining, horse riding and walking trails, to an array of great eateries, the Big 5 and cultural experiences.
Lurking in the distance is Kranskop, the majestic feature of the N1 highway on route to Kruger Natural Park and the capital of the province, Polokwane. The name Modimolle is also Sotho for the mountain, meaning the “God(s) have eaten”.
The unique rooms of Modimolle Funky Stay offers guests all the small comforts that makes a night away from home feel like a treat. The proudly South African touch is brought to life by
the multitude of colours, displayed not only in the paintings on the walls, but also in the choice of scatter cushions, throws and ottoman found in the room. Select DSTV channels are available on a flat screen television that is conveniently located facing the bed. The two twin beds can also be separated, with the furniture easily moved apart to still showcase the classy touch of South of Africa. En suite bathrooms offer a modern shower, elegant wash basin and toilet. There is also ample cupboard space with an open closet snugly fit into the cabins’ unique A-frame build.
