We enjoyed our stay very much. The villa has beautiful architecture with a nice view over Praia Do Tofo. As it is not directly in the town, it is calm and very private. You need a 4x4 to get there.

Place peaceful, safe, well attended, ideal for those who want to relax away from stress of the busy cities. Far from the beach and not regular transports make this lodge an isolated spot, which leaves guests dependent on the availability of the guide.

Vanilla view is great and even if its a bit away from the beach Reanne makes it a great place to stay. Free transfer twice daily to the beach. Superb breakfast if you are not in a rush. The house is extraordinary and give really good value for money. We loved it

Nice decor with moving walls and private swimming pool. I could live in a house like these. Staff is amazing and breakfast is very good and customized. The only problem is that it's a bit distant from the beach itself and you will need a 4x4 to reach the place. Owners were so kind that they allowed us to use their own 4x4 to go to the market and the diving center. Recommended.
