We only stayed one night and we were the only guests. Nice huge common area with sea view and kitchen. Rooms simple but ok. Plankets and pillow cases had stains. Too bright energy saving lights all over the place. No Moskito mesh at the windows....More

Dear Maksi, thank you for your review of Top-of-the-Dune Guesthouse. We regret to hear that you thought our breakfast was "way too expensive". As you know, we charge 500 Meticais per person, that is 7 Euros. Mozambique currently suffers from high inflation and this is...More

Stayed here for two weeks, and I could have spent two more. Located a five minute walk from the beach, Top-of-the-Dune guesthouse sits in the quieter end of Tofo, excellent for anyone wanting to fall asleep only to the sound of waves. The staff are...More

This is is a little paradise on earth. Beautiful house in a tranquil environment. The staff is so friendly and Linda is the best hostess I have ever met. This is one place I would go to for all my holidays.

From the moment you are greeted at door of our guesthouse and enter the beautiful open lounge with its large, roofed deck and amazing sea views, then venture out to the sugar-sand beach and azure waters ...More of the Indian Ocean, you know your visit to the Top-of-the-Dune will be nothing less than extraordinary. The charming beach house, Top-of-the-Dune is open for guests all year round and, surprisingly, at a price that won't break the bank. Of course, there are many vacation rentals available in Tofo, but Top-of-the-Dune's reputation is difficult to beat. A stunning house set in the bush on top of a Dune facing Tofino Beach, down a quiet lane just a few hundred meters of Tofo Village. Less
