The pictures tell a different story. Their is trees in front of the whole lake with no view what so ever. The owner said the kids can canoe in the lake yes and fall in the lake with all the water snakes I think not !! The house inside is horrible old and outdated not the picture you see with the 2 chairs nicely looking over the lake:( They have generators and no electricity we paid R3000 and when we arrived and viewed the place we phoned the owner later that afternoon and decided this is not the holiday place we wanted to stay at we phoned the owner and told him the story and he said they...

The accommodation was quaint and just what we needed. The view was breath taking, those who assisted us were friendly and helpful. Met the owner briefly on our last day - seemed like a friendly person.The only suggestion, is to have MUCH more clear signage on the sand road leading to the accommodation. It was our first trip to Mozambique and we arrived late and nearly missed the sign on the tree. All in all, enjoyed our stay.

It was a wonderful 8 days that we spend at Barra Lake and Sea. The owner and Host Abrie was very kind and his hospitality was magnificent! The accommodation, atmosphere, view and there seafood meal at the restaurant was excellent! I will certainly recommend the place and will go back there to stay even longer as soon as possible!

What an awesome experience. The most magic couple who own/run this resort. Felt like we were with family - the kind that bends over backwards!We thought, after taking a day trip to check out the other resorts, that BARRA LAKE AND SEA had much more to offer than some of the "fancier" resorts. The view, the snorkelling, dhow trip and friendly attention! I have already recommended the venue.

We had a wonderful stay at Barra Lake and Sea!Nice view of the Lake! The hosts Abrie and Irma went the extra mile! Nice comfortable beds!Maybe you can add a microwave, fryingpan steakknives and Casserole for the "Braaivleis" to the kitchen! We enjoyed every minute and will visit yu again!
