#2 of 2 Speciality lodging in Tofinho
Casa John forms the last outpost on the Tofinho Beach, just 20 kilometres south of Inhambane. Casa John offers 6 luxury self-catering units, 3 six sleeper units and 3 four sleeper units. Its position provides spectacular coastal views, the sea spray tingling the decks of the six luxury houses. Resident whale sharks loll in the immediate waters, competing for space when migratory Hump Back Whales make their appearance from early June to October. From the living areas, dolphins can be sighted chasing their catch, frustrating sea birds and interrupting your afternoon siesta.

We had a very nice stay in Casa John, the location is very nice, you can hear the ocean from the porch. The place is very clean, although, because it is a bit old, the decor is already passed and the house could use a general revamp.

Casa John is still a good self-catering option, the houses are good for family holidays and is safe, but it needs to keep it up; we were surprised to find that they don’t offer any shower gel or bath soap. On the first night no one was there to give us the keys to lock the rooms, although safe, is uncomfortable to leave the doors unlocked specially at night.

The chalet has two bedrooms separated by the living area. It was great that we could (out of season) get a reduced rate for just one bedroom. Excellent facilities and wonderful view from the balcony. The pool is large and well maintained. The staff were helpful when approached but need to give more information on arrival eg the wifi code

If you are looking for something special this is the place to be. We stayed in a 2 bedroomed/2 bathroomed self catering unit (H6). Undercover parking. Each room had a double bed with an extra single bed. Shower only. Very private and the sea views are amazing. Free Wifi. The unit is fully equipped with mosquito nets, very comfortable beds. The sea breeze at night was perfect especially this time of the year. Gas braai is provided at R 200.00. A big thank you to Dominingo and his Team for always being available when we needed them. All the units are well maintained. Beautiful trees/plants surrounding the various units. A plus was the beautiful big pool with loungers which is used by all residents at Casa John . Laundry is R15.00 per load. There is a lovely well stocked supermarket/butchery that is about 2km's away. A chemist as well. If you want bread you must be there early i.e 9h30. Rolls can be bought daily from the locals, between 5 to 7 Meticus each. Not much fruit to choose from - mangoes in abundance. You can get potatoes, onions, tomatoes, cabbage, lettuce from the locals. Good restuarants - "Sumi" in Tofo (Asian) - amazing food and The Green Turtle Beach bar and Restaurant in Inhambane - A MUST!! If you drink and book a table you can use the undercover relaxing beach loungers (they only have 2) so arrive early 09h30. The pricing is expensive but worth it. The Mojito's (Basil or Mint) are a must. The calamari salad sooooo delicious. You can also try the restaurant at Casa Barry (on the beach) that does delicious burgers and then of course their is C-MEW across the road from Casa Johan - delicious food all round. Hosts Linda and Corrie - made our visit even more special. Corrie offers deep see fishing trips as well! Overall a wonderful RELAXING HOLIDAY - a must is to register on Drive Moz so that you can get updates on what is happening in MOZ especially at the border posts. It took us 16 hours to Casa John - 20minutes at the border - left 19/12/18 and on our return on 2/01/19 went via Swaziland border.
