From Pretoria in South Africa and in love with Tofo, Mozambique
Casa Derika no estaba disponible, pero Christa nos ofreció Casa Christine, en Tofinho, y pasamos unos días muy agradables. Tofinho es mucho más tranquilo y menos turístico que Tofo y está a un paseo de 15 min, así que puedes hacer la compra o ir a bucear en Tofo y después volver a casa a relajarte avistando ballenas desde la misma terraza.
La casa es bonita y tiene todo lo necesario (tal vez añadiría una cafetera y una bayeta en la cocina) y el personal es muy atento. Recomendaría aclarar si los traslados están o no incluidos y reconfirmar la hora de salida para evitar malentendidos, no comprar demasiada comida de golpe porque a veces se va la luz en la zona y puede tardar en volver, y llevar suficiente efectivo porque el cajero más cercano está a 4,5 km. y las chapas no pasan con mucha frecuencia, aunque siempre se puede caminar o hacer autoestop. En algunas tiendas de buceo también cambian efectivo (en Liquid Adventures, a buen tipo) y en Casa Barry y en el supermercado se puede pagar con tarjeta.
Por lo demás, nos encantó la estancia, comprar el pescado fresco de los pescadores cada mañana y el pan y alguna fruta y verdura en el puesto de la señora a 3 min de la casa, junto a la escalera que baja a la playa, cocinar y pasar unos días relajados y bucear. El buceo es excelente y también el surf. Las playas son preciosas y buenas para el baño, aunque hay que tener cuidado con las medusas.
A spacious and clean home, right on the beach. The top veranda has a glorious view, and could not be a better place to watch a sunrise. We had such a lovely time that we extended our stay. All logistics were handled quickly and helpfully.
Thanks Clara, we hope to see you again sometime. keep well.
Excellent communication. Fantastic setting for a week on the beach. We loved our stay in Tofo and are all planning our return trips to Mozambique! Great host.
Aaa .. !!, glad to know you are planning your next trip. Hope to accommodate you then again. Keep well Jesse.
Verry nice place!! We enjoy our vacation
Thank you Emilie, glad you had a great stay.
We really enjoyed our long weekend at Casa Derika. 5 of us stayed comfortably in the small house. It was a great beach house feel (in an absolutely amazing location). We enjoyed the brai out front, taking advantage of all the fresh seafood Tofo has to offer. We were greeted kindly by Raul who manages the house in Tofo and he made sure we were all settled in.
The house was clean, had good bed nets, provided towels, had a nighttime guard and provided daily cleaning. The only improvement would be the hot water situation. The shower had good overall pressure, but the hot water came out as a dribble (making for a cold experience). This is only a problem in the cool weather (when we went) between May to August.
Overall I'd stay Casa Derika again and recommend it for small groups who want a great, no-frills beach house. Literally right on Tofo beach, it's the perfect location for beachfront relaxation.
Hi Mike, thanks for letting us know about the hot shower problem. We are currently in Tofo and will fix it - it is a priority. Keep well, hope to see you soon.
Casa Derika is in a very good position, directly on the beach and very close to the small village.
We arrived with the bus in the evening in Inhambane and we contact Raul,who came to pick up us with a taxi.
We miss only a bigger bed and the wifi.
We didn't meet Christa but she was very helpfull and nice. She answered everytime very quickly.
Thanks for your recommendations Emanuela, appreciate. I live in Pretoria in South Africa and am very privilege to have awesome workers in Tofo. We hope to see you again.
Great house, right on the beach. Incredible location! Christa kept us fully informed before our stay and provided us with foolproof directions.
Thanks Faye, hope to see you again. keep well
Casa Derika is RIGHT on the beach.
Locals will fish in the AM and come offer your their catch, just right after (and clean it)- it can't get fresher!
We made great use of the outdoor grill!
The gentleman that managed the house were waiting for us upon arrival, and were super nice. They are just a call away if anything is needed.
Make sure you get a lesson in the doors! - we got locked out, and it's a bit of a hike to get another key at the owners other property.
Hi Alissa, I am happy you had a great time and so sorry you locked yourself out. Apologies for the inconvenience. Hope to see you again.
Casa Derika was full but Christa put me in Casa Isabel in Tofinho. The place was clean and comfortable, on the dune overlooking the ocean. Amazing view. It's just a short walk along the quiet sandy beach to Tofo. Lovely place to relax and chill!
Thanks for your review Boon.I hope we can accommodate you again. Keep well.
Little paradise in an almost deserted Tofo. Raul and Pedro were excellent hosts, very helpful, place is exactly what is promised and comfortable. I modified an electricity adaptor to take continental European plugs (is in the kitchen socket: didn't work in verandah socket) so that I could charge laptop and telephone. Recommended!
