All you could wish for!
A truly splendid place to stay for a week or longer with family and friends! House w social areas downstairs and bedrooms upstairs makes a perfect mix for traveling w two/three small families. A level up from the beach which gives you privacy but instant access to the beach as well. Great kitchen w a lot of space to work, magnificent veranda/garden where the kids can play in the shadow of an almond tree and rest in a very cozy "sun bed hammock". Staff friendly and helpful! Contact person on spot also! Would highly recommend!

Superbe maison les pieds dans l'eau !
Nous étions un groupe de 5 amis et avons passé 3 semaines dans cette sublime villa à laquelle nous n'avons rien à reprocher. La localisation est parfaite, il faut environ 27 secondes à pieds pour rejoindre l'océan, et moins d'une minute pour se rendre au centre de Tofo. Les pièces sont très spacieuses et la décoration chaleureuse. La climatisation, les salles d'eau et les literies sont de très bonnes qualité. La cuisine est très bien agencée et dispose de beaucoup plus d'ustensiles que je n'en ai chez moi ! Le coin terrasse face à la mer est très agréable du matin au soir, il n'y a aucun vis à vis et le quartier est la situation en amont de la plage apporte beaucoup de calme. Nous avons été très bien accueillis et avons eu de très bon rapports avec le personnel qui s'occupe de la maison et plus particulièrement avec Mateus, le veilleur de nuit toujours souriant, qui nous a beaucoup aidé dans le lancement de nos barbecues quotidiens. Chico, qui s'occupe de l'entretien de la maison durant la journée, est très serviable et discret. Cette maison est vraiment idéale entre amis comme en famille, pour être au plus proche du spot de surf, se reposer au calme à l'ombre de l'amendoa, ou encore jouer aux cartes sur la grande table de la terrasse après la dégustation de langoustes au barbecue ! Bref, cet hébergement est selon moi incontournable pour quiconque se rendant à Tofo !

Maison magique
Superbe maison les pieds dans le sable. Maison tout confort, Chico et Mateus ont pris soin de nous comme jamais. Emplacement parfait pour aller surfer, aller au marcher, aller faire de la plongée ou même aller courir, se balader. Nous nous sommes sentis en totale sécurité dans cette super maison au cadre de rêve. Grâce à son jardin parfaitement aménagé, une journée à rester à la maison est très agréable.

Beautiful family home
Spent two wonderful weeks at this house on Tofo main beach. Cannot fault the house, very well equipped. Only a few steps away from the beach on a lovely elevated plot.

Génial
Une maison tout confort, spacieuse qui surplombe la plage centrale de Tofo. L'emplacement est idéal. Nous résidons à Johannesburg et c'est la troisième fois que nous louons la maison avec un plaisir renouvelé pour les vacances d'Octobre et de Février. Bref, le pied.

Très déçue
Si vous vous attendez à avoir une maison pieds dans l’eau ( comme sur les photos du site) passez votre chemin !! Le chemin d’accès est chaotique voir même galère pour vos bagages ! La structure est bien située dans le village. les serviettes et draps de lit de mauvaises qualités.Le personnel de ménage peu avenant. Seul le gardien de nuit a été exceptionnellement aimable et gentil. Wifi de mauvaise qualité.

Bonjour Florence, un des atouts de la maison est justement sa localisation à moins d'une minute à pied de l'eau et environ 20 mètres au-dessus de la plage en empruntant quelques marches de ciment. Cette situation en hauteur permet de profiter d'une vue dominante et imprenable sur l'océan, les baleines et la plage tout en garantissant l'intimité que la plupart des vacanciers recherchent lors de leur séjour en famille ou entre amis. Sur les photos on voit très bien que toutes les chambres, le salon et le jardin jouissent d'une vue plongeante sur la plage et l'océan...Le personnel de ménage est réputé serviable et a pour mission entre autres d'aider au transport des bagages lors de l'arrivée et du départ. Concernant les draps et serviettes, ils sont renouvelés régulièrement et le wifi est une connexion ADSL en forfait illimité fourni par la compagnie nationale TDM, ce qui se fait de mieux dans le pays! Enfin je suis désolé que tous nos efforts n'aient pas suffit à vous faire passer de super vacances et je vous prie d'accepter toutes nos excuses.

Oasis in Mozambique
Just spent 11 night at this fantastic accommodation in Tofo. Lass than 5 min on foot from the bustling market and village entertainments not that you would know. Perched overlooking the ocean on in the center of Tofo bay, just seconds from the beach but private. The house is stunning with fully functional equipment in kitchen, bedrooms and shower/bathrooms. Our room in particular had a Jacuzzi looking out upon the beach. Mosquito nets on all beds, AC in the living space/kitchen and bedrooms. Very good WiFi and a nice outside seating area with both gas and charcoal braii available. Staff were excellent, well choosen, hard working but unobtrusive. Very glad with our choice. Couldn't imagine this could be pipped in Tofo. Would certainly book again!

Perfect beach front house
If you're looking for a location that's on the beach but also close to the market and shops, look no further. There's a lot of space with wonderful views. The service from Chico & Phillipp is amazing. We were a big group (6 adults, 2 kids) but we had a great time. If I do end up going again in a big group, I will come back here!

Map
About the neighbourhood
Nested in dunes, the villa is overlooking the indian ocean and the best part of Tofo beach for swimming or surfing. From the deck you can observe the whales jumping over the water. In the garden you can enjoy privacy under the shade of a great Amendoa tree.
Getting around
You can jump in one of the local minivan (chapa) to reach in 30 minutes Inhambane the regional capital. Inhambane airport can be reached by domestic flight from Maputo.
Access
Car not needed
How to get there
ACCESS TO THE HOUSE BY CAR From the Komatipoort (Ressano Garcia) border gate it is around a 80km to Maputo ring road. Once on the ring road follow the “Xai Xai” direction boards... Continue straight on the “EN1”. Continue through Xai Xai. From Xai-Xai drive another approximately 224km and find at a small settlement named “Lindela” a definite split in the road with no indicators – take the right hand side leading to Inhambane. (The left goes to Maxixe). Once you are in Inhambane follow the directions to Tofo. At Bar Barbalaza slow down and turn right continue driving for another 10km to Tofo. Once you arrive to Tofo, drive off the tar road onto sand and take the first right in order to reach the beach. You should leave Hotel Tofo Mar on your left and follow the main road which take you around the market. As you leave the beach immediately look for a narrow and steep street, exactly opposite the fruits stands, which take you up to a 'cul de sac’ where there is a parking area with a green shade clothe. You can park here. Casa Amendoa is accessible from behind the shade clothe, follow the stairs down and then up. Welcome to Casa Amendoa! Ressano Garcia - Maputo ring road +/- 80km (look for a big sign - DECO on your right hand side - turn left) Maputo - Inhambane +/- 480km Inhambane - Tofo +/- 25km
