Our Villa is seclusively located in the Machangulo SA, on the Marine Reserve section of the The Maputo National Park on a peninsula due East of Maputo, which is the capital and the base for the main international airport of Mozambique. The peninsular is bordered on the East by the Indian Ocean and Maputo Bay on the West. South of the Machangulo SA is the public part of the Maputo national park, a beautiful nature reserve with elephants, buffalo and magnificent inland lakes with hippos and thousands of flamingo.
The beaches are 16 km long with only a dozen of private villas. As a result, one can walk on the beaches for hours without seeing another human being. The peninsula has beautiful coastal riverine bush behind the beach, with abundant birdlife and some small game. It is remote, and while the accommodation is luxurious it is not for those who prefer a “social party” type holiday with numerous cocktail parties! It does have a lovely beach restaurant though at the small village of Santa maria where one can have the most delicious freshly cooked seafood!
This superbly positioned and extremely well designed villa will give you all the exclusivity and luxury that you desire. This villa is in a ‘class of its own’ rarely found on the African Coast. Built on stilts to lower the impact on the environment and situated amongst the dunes your privacy is guaranteed. The property comprises a main building with a luxury equipped open plan kitchen and dining room opening up to the deck and the swimming pool. A separate lounge and a separate television room opens up to this deck as well. Three main bedrooms with beautiful en-suite bathrooms in separate cottages give each guest the opportunity to view the ocean from their own bath in full privacy. Unless of course you prefer to view the dolphins from your outside shower!
On the main deck several covered and uncovered lounge areas have been created to suit relaxing during all hours of the day. A garage and staff accommodation are included in the property. At all times three staff are employed to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Machangulo is a sea food paradise. Every day we try to serve you a different catch of the day, either caught by the staff or bought from the local fishermen. But obviously the local Mozambican dishes with chicken and delicious salads will be served as well. The wine fridge is always stocked with the best Southern African wines. Enjoy your dinners from the deck overlooking the Indian Ocean and watch the dolphins or whales passing by in the distance or be treated with a braai (BBQ) on the beach with the lasts crabs running in the surf on the beach.
