It would be extremely helpful to put up decent signage in finding Otto House. We found the written directions very cryptic. This was annoying after driving for hours and then getting lost. However, that said well worth the effort. Also take you own drinking and cooking water. All the water is from the river/delta. We will be back.

Positives: very comfortable and spacious, equipped with all you need; Green living (solar-powered); helpful and friendly manager called Jac.Negatives: the shack attached to the house needs some work - no hot water in the shower. Because of the solar-power, there is not enough capacity to charge all things required by tourists like cell phones, cameras, etc.Quite a remote location - difficult to find.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 days at Otto and wish we had booked for longer. The river views are fantastic and anybody interested in design/off-the-grid living will have a royal time. We will definitely be back soon!

Lovely place - poor directions

The house is beautiful and it has everything you need, from towels, a fridge and a fire pit. The dogs are friendly and the property is so private that it doesn't feel like you're in Maun, except for the donkeys of course! :)We loved the design, furnishings and attention to detail. I have stayed in many places around Maun but this hidden gem is tops! I will highly recommend. Thank you for a wonderful break.
