Casa Vermelha is a fully air-conditioned, self-catering holiday home located within the secure Xai-Xai Eco Estate, serviced daily by a dedicated house manager including cleaning and washing.

The house can accommodate up to 10 people, with beds specifically for 2 - 4 children.

The space
A peaceful, restful holiday is aided by a full DSTv bouquet, complimentary Wi-Fi, and a housekeeper on-site daily to service and clean the house.

There is easy access to restaurants, bars, and swimming beaches, either on foot or by car, as well as a host of activities in and around the Eco Estate, such as fishing, shopping at the local market, or guided quad bike tours. The winter months, which are still extremely temperate, are perfect for whale watching since both the Southern Right and Humpback whales migrate past the Xai-Xai coastline.

Xai-Xai's pristine beaches lie within a natural reef, meaning that swimming in the warm, clear water is a delight, with only gentle waves in many areas.

To maintain guests' comfort even in the heat of the Mozambican summer, Casa Vermelha is fully air-conditioned in all rooms.

The house comprises four bedrooms, two of which feature en-suite bathrooms, with a third bathroom available for guests in the remaining bedrooms. Three bedrooms feature queen-size beds, with the fourth being made up of two single beds and a sleeper couch. The beds are fitted with mosquito nets for guests' comfort, though the use of prophylaxis for malaria is strongly recommended.

The house features a wrap-around deck with ocean views and strong design elements to bring the outside colours and light into the cool and restful interior. Leading off the deck, there is also a short path to the Eco Estate swimming pool, for those guests wishing to have a dip after a day at the beach.

Where you’ll be

Xai-Xai, Gaza Province, Mozambique

Xai-Xai is the capital of Gaza province, but could still be considered a small, bustling town. The beach, or praia, area stands in stark contrast to the town with it's extremely laid-back, calm atmosphere.

A favourite local spot is the Wenela Tide Pool, located a few kilometres up the beach from the Eco Estate - a hole in the natural reef creates a natural tide pool, wonderful for swimming.
