Tofo Beach Accommodation offers 3 self-catering, basic and rustic-styled cottages. Casa Derika, a 2 bedroom beachfront cottage, sleeps max 5 and is on the main beach in Tofo. Casa Isabel, a 2 bedroom seafront cottage, sleeps max 6 and is in Tofinho. Casa Christine, a 2 bedroom with loft seafront cottage, sleeps max 7 and is also in Tofinho.
Each of the 3 respective cottages is uniquely styled and offers a rustic and home-like atmosphere, where you can "relax and do your own thing". All the cottages have electricity, warm water, a fridge and separate freezer and cooking facilities. The cottages are equipped for self catering and have cutlery, crockery, furnishing, bedding and mosquito nets... nothing extravagant. Unfortunately, no TV or air-con, but all the houses have a braai and a safe for your valuables.
The 3 cottages share a group of 2 cleaners (Raul and Pedru) who’s job it is to make your stay as memorable as possible, e.g. makes the beds, does the dishes, sweeps the floors, assists you in negotiating the best buy of fresh fish, prawns, calamari and crayfish from the beach and also clean the fish. His wages are included in your daily fee. The only task they are not allowed to do, is washing and ironing of clothes, for which they can assist in finding you someone who could do that at a modest fee. The cottages are also serviced by a group of guards, whose job it is to keep a watchful eye during night-time and to ensure that your privacy is not compromised. Guards are normally on duty between 22:00 and 06:00.
Tofo is an awesome beach town, in the Inhambane province 550km north of Maputo. No need for a 4 x 4, Tofo and the 3 cottages are reachable with a normal car.
