About this listing

Perched high on a dune, with a breathtaking 200 degree view of the Indian Ocean to the East and hills with palm groves to the West - our private, rustic holiday home is the ideal haven to get away from it all, with a little private beach 300m away.

100s of meters away from other houses and artificial light, the night sky lights up (thanks Gretchen for your photo)

Description

The Space

Perched high on a dune, with a breathtaking 200 degree view of the Indian Ocean and 300m from a private beach - this is the ideal haven to get away from it all.

Note that due to being away from it all, the road and amenities might feel too rustic for some travellers, but perfect for eco-tourists like myself.

Although it's only 30km away from the Inhambane Airport and only 3km away from Tofo beach (with it's markets, bars, restaurants, surfing and famous diving reefs), this house is completely private, with hardly any other houses as far as the eye can see.

The house has a very open/spacious feel, with spectacular views from each area, even the room overlooking the inland palm groves. The spacious veranda, overlooking the ocean, is the ideal place to laze away the afternoon in the shade and at night time the stars light up the sky.

The house has 8 beds. It has 2 main rooms with double beds (that can be moved apart) and 4 single beds in the open loft area. Max 8 people.

The house is located on the outskirts of the Tofinho suburb of Tofo Beach town, 30km from Inhambane province in Mozambique.

Guest Access

-You will need a 4x4 for the last few hundred meters. Some guests without 4x4 chose park close by and walk the last few hundred meters, but that's too much effort for lazy holiday-makers like myself.
-No fires/braaing, only use the provided gas cooking. Be very careful when smoking not to cause a fire hazard
-GPS Coords: (phone number hidden)

Interaction with Guests

It's my holiday home and I live in Joburg, but the friendly housekeeper, Franciso, will check in daily and the manager, Orlando, will come and say hi, and see that you're looked after (let him know if you run into any problems). Also, the guards, Ricardo and Antonio, don't speak english, but will help where they can.

Just note that is still a self-catering set-up, and does not have all the services of a fancy hotel.

The friendly cleaner and handy man, Francisco, will help where he can. A tip will be highly appreciated, about $3-4 per recommended.

The Neighborhood

What's not to love!

-The reefs and marine life is world famous (think Manta Reef and the whale shark snorkel expeditions).
-The local people are really friendly.
-A lot of natural beautify and a unique character

Getting Around

It's a bit tricky if you don't have a 4x4 vehicle for the last few hundred meters.

Some guests without 4x4s park a few hundred meters away from the house where it's not too sandy.

Public chaps (taxis) go up to Tofo beach (3km from my place).

Other Things to Note

Feel free to ask me any questions about the place and area, especially if you have not been in Mozambique before.
