“A Hidden Gem - By Far the Best on Tofu Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

Having travelled to over 60 countries, from 5 star hotels to hostels, there are few places that deserve as much positive attention as does Casa Do Mar and owners, Jackie and Daphne. I do not write reviews often but do so when there is a place that i truly feel fellow travellers would greatly benefit knowing about.

This newly built guesthouse (right on tofu beach) is stunning (beautiful architecture with modern clean furnishings, big, clean rooms with a/c and ensuite, some with incredible sea views, cozy and spacious common spaces, great swimming pool, etc).

The location is great - perched up right at the beach in a quiet location and just minutes walk from the market/town - right next door to a dive and activity centre, etc).

The views are incredible (unobstructed views all along tofu beach).

The food, which is incredibly reasonable/cheap, is not only *very* tasty (prepared by an experienced chef) but also of generous proportions

The owners (Jackie and Daphne) are likely the friendliest, most helpful hosts i have come across is my many travels. They both continually work very hard to ensure that each guest is comfortable, has what he/she needs and, are very helpful in arranging transportation, activities, providing information, etc.

Casa Do Mar is only one of a very few places that have and operate a generator throughout the night when the city's electricity (which was incredibly unreliable throughout my stay) is not working - this proved to be a blessing when we still had access to a/c at night when many other people staying elsewhere had no power (and no generator) to run fans or a/c for many uncomfortable hours or even throughout the entire night.

The value is unmatched - the budget prices charged are well below what the owners could/should otherwise charge for this very high level (in my view 5star) b&b accommodation. I stayed at 2 other places on the beach, the second which was only 25$ less, but which did not have the pool, any breakfast, stunning rooms, swimming pool, helpful owners, tv room, food, etc etc etc that Casa Do Mar offers.

There is little doubt in my mind, that anyone staying at Casa Do Mar will enjoy their stay - very happy to have found and stayed at Casa Do Mar.

Room Tip: ask for sea view room if available

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2011

Casa do Mar is a very confortable guest house, beautiful spacious rooms with balcony, amazing see view and airco. The accommodation rates are very reasonable compared to all the expensive neighbouring lodges. Jackie and Daphne are amazingly friendly, they really made us feel at home during the week we spent at the quest house. Breakfast was very good and served on the terrace with see view. Rooms are very clean.Highly recommended for those who search good price quality ratio, a stay at this guest house will turn your holiday into a fantastic Mozambique experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the house with see view
