Pam Golding Properties (PGP) Glenvista office manager Nigel Mullins says with the price of petrol skyrocketing and households increasingly feeling the financial pinch, many more Johannesburg residents are looking closer to home for their weekend breaks in the countryside.
“There are some beautiful country guest farms situated within a stone’s throw of Johannesburg and these developments are some of the city’s best kept secrets, just waiting to be explored.”
Malonjeni Guest Farm offers a range of different types of accommodation and outdoor activities and is ideal for city dwellers in need of a short break from their busy lives.
Mullin says the guest farm represents an opportunity for anyone interested in making a solid investment in the property and the hospitality industry.
The 256-hectare private guest farm is being placed on the market as a going concern offering sound returns.
All forward bookings and deposits paid in advance will be handed over to the new owners, according to Mullin.
The farm currently attracts business mainly from the Gauteng area and visitors come from further afield and include even the occasional foreign tourist.
It is a popular wedding venue and corporates use it for teambuilding exercises and functions.
Families enjoy the wide-open spaces and the host of facilities on offer, as do clubs and church groups.
Camping and caravanning sites are located separately for those who enjoy being closer to nature, he says.
Mullin says the property has additional accommodation in the form of luxury chalets and has the potential for development into an eco or country estate.
Situated between Three Rivers, Vereeniging and Heidelburg on the R42, Malonjeni Guest Farm includes a lodge, conference facility, wedding venue and two caravan parks with 260 caravan sites.
Guest accommodation includes a four bedroom farmhouse, which can accommodate nine guests.
The farmhouse has its own thatched lapa with private braai facilities. In addition to this there are 16 separate rooms with two beds in each.
The main camp has 180 serviced caravan sites with electricity as well as modern ablutions.
Among the many amenities to keep visitors entertained are a boma, fully licenced pubs and a heated swimming pool.
The bush camp is situated at the foot of an attractive koppie and has 80 electrified stands and its own swimming pool.
There are around 200 animals on the property including black wildebeest, eland, red hartebeest, waterbuck, zebra, blesbok, springbok, reedbuck, fallow deer, impala and gemsbok.
He adds that Malonjeni Guest Farm offers an excellent opportunity for an investor or group of investors with vision.
