Ideally you should try to share a house with other families so that the price is attractive for 8-10 people. A 5th bedroom can be made available for an occasional overflow, as we have a cottage close by, that sleeps 2 in a private en-suite facility.
Due to demand and preference for longer bookings, mostly for at least 7 days by most foreign visitors, we are not able to offer confirmed bookings for only 2 nights long in advance.
To accommodate Maputo residents who often only wish to visit for a weekend, we are happy to make a provisional reservation, but can only offer confirmation 4 weeks in advance if a booking is only for 2 nights, or 6 weeks in advance if the booking is for 3 nights.
Easter Holidays – We recommend at least 7 nights for peak season. Tariff is R11,445/night with R11,970/night applicable for the Easter weekend portion. Due to high demand, we try to optimise the bookings over peak periods.
December 2022/New Year weeks - We are almost fully booked over December 2022. Please check the calendar regularly for any changes, or email email@example.com for enquiries.
Optional Extra: If you would like to rent a boat for your stay, we can offer you the exclusive use of a 7m semi-rigid boat, a Superduck with 2x 60 HP Suzuki 4-stroke engines. It comes with a skipper and may be used to visit anywhere around the peninsula: snorkelling, trips to Portuguese Island or Inhaca, water-skiing, tubing, fishing in the bay, sun downer cruises etc. The cost is R2,550/day and will apply for the full duration of your visit. 20 litres of fuel/day are included per 6 night visit or pro-rata for shorter stays. This adds a comprehensive experience to an already fabulously exciting visit. Equipment such as water-skis, tubes (sit in double or lie down double), snorkelling equipment, beach chairs and a shade gazebo are included for use on excursions. Fishing out at sea can also be offered, with a small add-on fee. This is a very popular offering and is booked almost always by visitors, unless they have their own boat.
