    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    6 Bedrooms, 6 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    The Beach house is beautifully nestled between sand dunes overlooking a stunning beach into the crystal clear waters of Lake Malawi with huge shade trees next to it. The house has four very large en-suite bedrooms, all with twin beds and mosquito nets. It faces southwest with the sun rising in winter at one end of the beach and setting at the other. In summer it rises over the islands of Chizumulu and Likoma, a photographers dream.

    A big terrace (khonde) and an open conservatory setting with many plants in eartheware pots offer the very best outdoor life in the tropics.

    The kitchen is well equipped with a large refrigerator and deep freezer and cooker. All crockery and cutlery allows a wide range for self catering. House servants are available at all times to help in the kitchen, ma...

    Additional Location Information
    Beach House is located on the northern shores of Lake Malawi, near the little town of Chintheche, just 2km away on the main lakeshore road between Salima and Mzuzu.

    Chintheche is an easy hour's drive from Mzuzu, the northern city of Malawi, on a lovely scenic route winding down the shoulder of the Great Rift Valley, passing banana and rubber plantations, rice paddies, tea and coffee estates. From Lilongwe by road approximately 349km (4 Hrs) via Salima through the Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve or by air landing in Chintheche suitable for small aircraft and private charters. Lilongwe International Airport by air is only 30 minutes away.

    The Beach House appeals most to those seeking a get-away holiday. There are landline telephones and cellular phone network coverage is good, but no satellite TV, just a well stocked library and plenty games for the family.

    Dugouts (local wooden canoes) can be hired as a challenge to those with a well-developed sense of balance, and the gently s...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The beach house looks idyllic. We were unlucky that the weather was stormy and very windy. This meant that the children could not swim in the lake. They had fun on the beach when the rain stopped. The house itself needs repairs done to the roof as there were many leaks. I would imagine that a visit in the sunshine... more
