I absolutely loved staying at Bay View Lodge for my first trip to Mozambique. The lodge was huge even though we only came as a party of 3. The house can easily hold a big family or a larger party. They have everything you need from braai stand, to fully equipped kitchen etc. The rooms were clean, the nets had very small holes but nothing a plaster or tap can't fix. The sheets and towels were clean. It is right by the beach which was amazing and brings in a breeze against the heat. Restaurants were in walking distance and local clubs/music/bars and markets were just a 10 min drive out to Tofo. The staff are just unbelievably amazing. We got there a day late because we took the "Short cut" (don't do this, do not follow gps ask Bayview lodge if coming from JHB and driving) so they accommodated us to stay a day after our initial booking. The security washed our totally wrecked car to perfection as if nothing ever happened. They even washed our sneakers.

All around I am definitely coming back to Bay view lodge on my next trip

Tip: A can of Doom and a stick of peaceful sleep in each room would be helpful since we finished ours in just 2 days. The Mosquitos ARE REAL OUT HERE!

Self catering but the 2 beach bars are both very good so we always ate there. Beach is great. Facility is clean, secure, friendly and well run. Only negative is not being near a supermarket or ATM onsite, the beach at nearby Tofo is amazing and there's a small town market and ATM there, 500 M in a taxi each way. ($5 US). So worth spending some days over there. Dive shop here (Barra Reef) is good, did a nice shallow reef dive, good fun.

An affordable yet amazing accommodation right on the beach.
The room is self catering and fully equipped to your basic needs, but since the lodge is steps away from the amazing restaurant Green Turtle, do stop by and try the octopus thai curry !!!!

Will definitely return to Bay View, Couldnt have asked for better !!!

We stayed at Bayview for 12 days in August. We were in number 5 which is 30meters to the beach with a nice garden. All the units are very close to the beach.
The units are a little old but clean and more than adequate. The domestic staff come every day to keep the unit clean and were all very pleasant.
The unit has a bedroom with double bed and mozzie net. A lounge / kitchen with decent fridge and gas cooker. A nice deck with a braai and a couple of deck chairs for lounging around.
Its a two minute walk to the Green Turtle ( a really nice restaurant ) and Neptune's beach bar, very informal and reasonably priced for food and drink.
The management at Bayview were super helpful and nothing was to much trouble for them.
The internet is a bit slow but hey ..... are you coming all the way to the back of beyond to sit on your IPad ????

Room Tip: Number 4 and 5 are nearest the sea but they are all OK the farthest room is 100m to the beach so no stress
