Casa John

Self Catering House, Cottage, Chalet Accommodation in Tofinho

Casa John forms the last outpost on the Inhambane. Its position provides spectacular coastal views, the sea spray tingling the decks of the three luxury houses.
Resident whale sharks loll in the immediate waters, competing for space when migratory Hump Back Whales make their appearance from early June to October. From the living areas, dolphins can be sighted chasing their catch, frustrating sea birds and interrupting your afternoon siesta.

Accommodation
There is no rush for you at Casa John. Designed and built by John and Jessica Youens, these houses were created with easy, relaxed living in mind. Domingo is on call to care for your needs - and will oversee daily cleaning.

Each house is fully equipped and comfortably appointed. Your family and friends can spread out with ease between the three bedrooms and two bathrooms that sleep and accommodate 6 people. An open plan design marries the dining, kitchen and living areas. These all centre towards the verandas that unashamedly stare on the beach views to either side and magnificent ocean ahead. An enclosed courtyard in the centre of each house provides sheltered space should the wind pick up.

Things to do:

Diving & Snorkelling: The Tofo marine area is increasingly gaining a reputation as one of the best diving spots in the world. It is highly likely that you will spot whale shark on route to a dive and have the opportunity to snorkel with it. Invariably mantas circle you in numbers every time you go down on scuba off the famous Manta Reef. Also on show are cheeky devil rays, turtles, large schools of tropical fish, reef shark and the elusive harlequin shrimp.

Try Fishing: Casa John is superbly situated on a rocky cliff face, allowing excellent access for shore fishing. Local charters for deep-sea fishing are available and spear fishing is permitted off the entire coast.

Walk for miles: Mozambique is famous for its long stretches of white beaches, and Tofo is no exception. Go shell hunting, watch the local fishermen or simply enjoy unspoilt beauty.

Sun and Surf:
Casa John provides ease of access between the two main beaches at Tofo and smaller secluded beaches along the Tofinho road. Lap up the sun and frolic in the waves in total isolation or on the main stretch.

Explore Linga-Linga bay and the estuary:
Tofo is in close proximity to Linga-Linga bay (see map) and Inhambane estuary, which not only provides an excellent days boating, but can also provide the unique experience of spotting the shy manatee and inshore seahorse.

Samba, biera and lullas:
Enjoy the rhythm of local Mozambiquan music, with a cold beer and local delicacies from the number of quaint restaurants and beach bars along the main beach.

Go local:
Mozambique has an interesting history and Inhambane does house a small museum and art gallery. Day trips can also be arranged to cross the Inhambane bay to opposite Maxixe by dohw boat. Explore the local markets and curios in Tofo and Inhambane and along the roads between them.
