Holiday Rental House
The Lookout is a luxury self catering beach house overlooking the beach of Praia da Rocha offering the perfect beach holiday destination with incredible views, great facilities and lots to do. Ideal for couples or families, a holiday, sabbatical, somewhere to get away from it all, write a book or recharge the batteries. The house has wonderful entertaining areas but also provides privacy so that everyone has enough space. The views are simply stunning. The house has three large en-suite bedrooms and a fourth family room with mezzanine floor and separate bathroom. Watch humpback whales from the deck from June to October, snorkle with whale sharks and dolphins year round and dive the world famous Manta Reef from Tofo.

Ideal for couples or families, a holiday, sabbatical, somewhere to get away from it all, write a book or recharge the batteries. The house has wonderful entertaining areas but also provides privacy so that everyone has enough space. The views are simply stunning. The house has three large en-suite bedrooms and a fourth family room with mezzanine floor and separate bathroom. Watch humpback whales from the deck from June to October, snorkle with whale sharks and dolphins year round and dive the world famous Manta Reef from Tofo. Alternatively relax on the miles of empty beaches, go game fishing or experience the warmth of the people and beautiful colonial setting of the sleepy town of Inhambane with its colourful market. Whilst the Indian ocean provides exciting diving, surfing and fishing, the bay of Inhambane is tranquil and serene dotted with islands and sand bars at low tide. Take a traditional dhow cruise and look for pansy shells on pansy Island. The beaches at the lookout have everything: on the North bay-side is a calm beautiful swimming beach whilst the south beach is fun and adventurous with great surfing but also more private and secluded. The dunes around the house provide a stunning setting and endless fun for children in a truly unique environment. The Lookout is fully equipped for a luxury self-catering holiday and is serviced daily by two dedicated staff members so there is nothing to do but to sit back and enjoy yourself!More

Both these rooms have stunning sea views and sliding doors onto the front deck. There is a fifth room that can accommodate more guests available on request (an extra 3 pax). The cottage has two beautiful and private rooms with their own sliding doors onto private decks. Both rooms are ensuite: bedroom 3 with a bathtub with sea view, walk-in shower and twin sinks and bedroom 4, twin sinks and a glass door to the ultimate outside shower. All bedrooms have air conditioning and fans. The main area has a modern open plan kitchen and a large lounge and dining area with stunning views. Two huge folding doors open the main area onto the front deck and the pool deck. A large sliding door leads from the kitchen to the breakfast deck and barbeque area for alfresco dining at a large table that can accommodate up to 12. The pool is perfectly positioned and the areas flow well making for an easy and relaxing holiday for all the family. There is a drying room at the back of the house and a laundry/washing room at the garage. These two properties are rented together as one unit, and exclusively to one group at a time.

Stayed here in April with friends. The house is located in a remote delevopment that takes about 30 minutes to get to from the main road. A 4x4 is a must since it is a sand road. Once there the place is incredible and the...More
