Located right on the main beach it takes less than 50 yards to experience the warm waters of the Mozambique Channel during high tide. The cottage offers basic facilities for a small family. Mom and Dad can sit on the verandah and keep an eye on the children playing on the beach. For teens, the cottage is also ideally located and a stone’s throw from their places of interest, e.g. Dino’s Beach Bar.
The cottage is serviced with municipal 220 volt electricity and water supply (we do not recommend it for drinking). Water can be collected from Casa Isabella which have a borehole water supply. However, during peak season times, the supply cannot match Tofo’s demand and periodic power and water cuts are experienced. The cottage is served by a house-cleaner during day-time ….. no need for mom to make the beds, sweep the floors, or wash the dishes. During night time a guard is keeping an eye, out so that your privacy and security are not compromised. The house cleaner can arrange someone to wash your clothes at a modest fee. Casa Derika dates back to the pre-war colonial period (early 1960’s) during which a row of approximately 10 look-alike cottages was built by a Portuguese gentleman with the name of Mr. Poletta, right on the main beach at Tofo. Some of these cottages survived the period of war and was rehabilitated to their original state. Casa Derika, being one of them is located right in the middle.
