Where you’ll be

Machangulo, Maputo Province, Mozambique

Machangulo is an area in southern Mozambique on the peninsula measuring about 20 kilometers and at present has only 15 houses. Long walks and bike rides on the unspoiled beach are highly recommended! Day trips to the Maputo Special Reserve and a dhow trip from Santa Maria, our nearest town, to Inhaca Island for lunch and snorkeling are a must. Deep-sea fishing can be arranged. Peace and quiet is our selling point, but Bemugi's Beach Bar is a short drive away should you feel the need for social interaction, great cocktails, and delicious meals in their restaurant.

Lover of life, controller of chaos, avid traveller and self-confessed oenophile, I love all things that are good in life - like good food, good wine, good company - and travelling! We have a couple much-loved properties that we rent out and we love meeting different people from across the world. We travel mostly for work but try to get away for leisure as often as possible. I'm an easy going person and have the utmost respect and appreciation for the hosts that welcome us, as we try and make our guests feel welcome.
