Spacious, neat & perfectly located.
Ideally located in full view of Tofinho's main break. Far enough from the bustle of Tofo but still in walking distance. Spacious, neat and everything one needs. Gideon and his staff make the stay extra special. We had a wonderful stay and will be back.

Wonderful atmosphere!!
Spent the week on a deep sea fishing trip with friends. Great place to stay with good launching facilities close by. Bernardo was extremely helpful and we came to a clean house every afternoon. Enjoyed the nearby facilities and loved the late afternoon drinks and braai from the veranda overlooking the sea. I will be back!!

Thanks Maria, we are glad you and Ana had a splendid time at Tofinho. To experience a whale breaching while surfing, must have been a life time experience!!

Surfer's Paradise on your stoep
Had a wonderful stay at Casa Gideon for two weeks with my family (3 couples). The house has got the PRIME location, right ON the surfspot, and you can check the waves from the stoep, with a quick hop across the road you can be in the water within 2 minutes! The house is spacious, with excellent braai facilities (sheltered from wind), and all the basic kitchen and other needs. Ricardo will help you with anything you need, and comes in every day to do dishes - what a pleasure! He also speaks good English. there is also a night guard who looks after the cars and house. beds have mosquito netting. If you love fish/ seafood, the local market sells fresh fish/ crayfish/ prawns every day for cheap cheap ;) just take your own scale... otherwise you might get ripped off! sometimes the locals also come up to the house to try and sell fish etc... overall the locals are super friendly, and we never felt unsafe - seems like crime is not an issue in the area :) Gideon is also super helpful with advice and answering questions, so feel free to contact him. Definitely hope to go back soon! Highly recommended!

About the neighbourhood
Tofinho, less than a kilometre south of Tofo, is situated on a more exposed and rocky headland and the waves at Tofinho are known for very good surfing. The headland is also a favourite spot for fishermen when a high tide covers the shelf, allowing casting for the plentiful kingfish into the deep waters beyond. Tofinho is also the site of the Frelimo Monument to Fallen Heroes, near to where unfortunate victims of the colonial period were thrown into a sea cave, to be drowned by the rising tide. A spectacular blow hole near the tip of the point can give a raw display of power, when there is a large swell running. Accommodation Tofinho Beach Cottages offers a selection self-catering cottages, spread above the Tofino Beach.
Getting around
We will arrange to collect you free of charge with a chapa (local taxi) from the airport if you booked at one of our cottages. If required they will stop on the way at recommended places for you to do your shopping, before dropping you off. At an additional fee, the chapa can take you to other areas close by or to Inhambane town.
