We offer a nice, cosy double en suite bedroom on our Beach Plot which is a few steps from down to the beach and is surrounded by all the natural shaded bush land.

The space

It is cosy and rustic and simple. But has air conditioning which is a great benefit! As well as a fan. Plenty of hanging space and large chest of drawers. The bathroom has a en suite bathroom with towels, toilet paper and soap provided. The hot shower needs to be run to get it going, we provide a recipient for saving the water in this case.

Guest access

You can use the large outside Fridge for your food & drinks to be stored. There is also a common dining room area near our Main Kitchen that can be used by the Guests where you find the Wifi provided. All open spaces on the Beach Plot are for the use of our Guests. Minimal use of our Main Kitchen is acceptable.

Interaction with guests

We are always available to help as are our permanent 2 Staff who live on site 24/7, they rotate on duty and have been with us for over 15 years. We have a housekeeper who comes to clean your room everyday except Sunday. However - Please make sure that you give her the Keys in the morning. Urgent laundry can be arranged at an additional fee per Kg.

Other things to note

We have 6 dogs on site with us - it's our best security feature I believe! But if you don't like dogs then you should not stay with us. We also have 2 kids and they are not rowdy or undisciplined - they do enjoy going off to the beach and riding their bikes during the weekends. There is a detailed information sheet in the room and in the Basics Information above. Included in our Double Room rate we offer a basic local breakfast consisting of local toast, jam & butter, local fruit piece, a fruit juice, tea and coffee. Should you wish to have a more substantial breakfast menu we do recommend either Russels or Kauri. We hope it is obvious to our guests that living in an African country, in front of the beach with such wild vegetation and terrain brings with it certain risks. All care must be taken due to this type of setting and terrain, especially for children or elderly guests. We cannot be held liable or responsible for any accident / incident during your stay at our place. Please take care that this is a malaria area and you show take all the necessary precautions.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: DURING THE HEAVY RAINY SEASON (WHICH NORMALLY CAN BE FROM AS EARLY AS MID DECEMBER TO AS LATE AS EARLY MAY) WE ARE UNABLE TO GUARANTEE THE USE OF THE SWIMMING POOL. WE ALSO INFORM POTENTIAL GUESTS THAT POWER CUTS OCCUR ON A MORE REGULAR BASIS DURING THIS HEAVY RAINY SEASON. THUS KINDLY BEAR THIS IN MIND BEFORE YOU BOOK WITH US. WE HOPE YOU STILL DECIDE TO VISIT US! IF YOU HAVE ANY QUERIES SEND US A MESSAGE. MANY THANKS

We expect our guests to enjoy the beautiful setting of our home whilst respecting all our staff, family and animals. We do not expect our guests to bring strangers or non-booked visitors to stay at our family home. So, if you have booked for a certain number of guests please make sure exactly that number of guests arrives at check-in and throughout your stay - thank you for your consideration and respect in this matter. There is no smoking in the accommodation although there is plenty of room to smoke outside. We do not mind if our guests have late night picnics on the beach but we don't expect anyone to have raves at our house! We hope you can return our nice accommodation in the same order that you found it. All in all I do believe we are pretty easy-going Hosts and we try and help out as much as we can.
VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON THE WIFI WE OFFER - We inform all our Guests that we offer Wifi from a local Mozambican service provider in a Common Room in the middle of our home. There is no Wifi in your particular accommodation. Therefore, if your expectation is to have Wifi in your accommodation we inform you that this is not the service we provide. The Common Room is very easy to find. Please ask one of our 24/7 employees where it is if you cannot find it. We would kindly remind you that this Wifi connection is probably not up to your expectations and standards. But it is what it is, offered in our location in the world. We do not offer it for business use at any level. However it’s fine enough to use if you need to go on AirBnB, your email account, other common social networks etc. Please ensure it is only used for legal purposes and never for illegal uploading, downloading, or other illegal activities.
We would kindly request that at the end of your stay when you are asked to evaluate us you do not state that there was no Wifi. Wifi is clearly offered on these terms and hence this long text in our Profile to ensure that are NO misunderstandings before you book. If you do not get the Wifi in the Common Room to work, please let us know immediately. Please do not wait until you leave us and tell AirBnB as then there is nothing we can do to try and sort out the issue. We are not saying we will be able to get you the connection because from time to time it does go down but we will certainly try and see what is going on. Remember we are also dependant on the same Wifi and thus it is of interest to us to know it is up and running fine.
But mostly we do hope that you decide to stay with us in our simple and rustic home setting!

Ana's accommodation is of a very high standard. She and her staff looked after us very well. Ana went above and beyond to make our stay a good one. I would recommend without hesitation.

Ana's place is absolutely lovely. The main terrace gives right onto the ocean and there's also a pool which makes for a quieter swim. The room is clean, well equipped and with nice details (including tea set!). Ana was very helpful and assisted us in reaching her house from the airport/public transport hub in Pemba, which made are travelling much easier. Thank you! Would recommend and hope to visit again.

Ana and Pedro's place is fantastic value. Our room was spotless and beautifully done with lots of homely touches - AC was a real luxury! The beach was pretty much deserted by lunch time and the poolside very quiet- an impossibly stunning location. Ana, Pedro and all the staff really went out of their way for us and made our trip memorable. The place is a destination in itself! We were very sad to leave and hope to come back one day.

Absolutely loved Ana and Pedro's place! The little personal details in the room made me feel at home. There was everything I could need, from essentials, to such things as little kettle with cups and tea/coffee and candles. The proximity to the beach made it very special for me and my daughter (1.5 year old), as every morning we would enjoy swim in a low tide, watching crabs and looking for red starfish - a real sensory experience for my active toddler. And one of the dogs (Falafel) would always accompany us to make sure we are safe :))

Beautiful place and gorgeous hosts, Ana and Pedro are delightful! I felt like I was at my home, everything was spot on, the room, privacy, cleanliness, stunning beach and surroundings and of course Ana and Pedro were the highlight. I highly recommend their place and would stay again with pleasure! Thank you both for everything! Maggie

I had a wonderful time staying at Ana and Pedro's home. Set in a quieter area of Pemba it was perfect, peaceful and serene! They were both very friendly, I appreciated you showing me around, picking and dropping me to the airport, and making me feel welcome. If I were to ever visit Pemba again I would definitely be staying at your place and shall recommend it to any friends who wish to visit too. The restaurant nearby was convenient and good, I particularly enjoyed watching the people go about their daily lives fishing in the morning and then sitting on the beach watching the sunset over the bay in the evening! Thank you :)
