Casa 2 (Gideon)
Casa 2 (Gideon) enjoys Tofinho’s prime spot. Located right at Tofinho’s main beach it takes less than 80 yards to experience the warm waters of the Mozambique Channel during high tide. The cottage is ideal for a large family. The verandah offers spectacular views and frequent sightings of dolphins and whales. Casa Gideon is just far enough from the hustle-and-bustle of Tofo’s main beach, but still within walking distance, either by road (some 1,5 km.) or a 30 minute stroll along the beach.
The cottage is serviced with municipal 220 volt electricity and borehole water supply. However, during peak season times, the electricity supply cannot match Tofo’s demand and periodic power 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 is not compromised. The house cleaner can arrange someone to wash and iron your clothes at a modest fee.
5 cleaners (cum butlers) who’s job it is to make your stay as memorable as possible, e.g. makes the beds, washes the dishes, sweeps the floors, assists you in negotiating the best buy of fresh fish, prawns, calamari and crayfish from the beach and also cleans the fish, helps prepare food, even join you as guide to town (Inhambane) and nearby places of interest (e.g. Barra, Paindane, Praia da Roche, Coconut Bay), etc. His salary is included in your daily fee.
The only task they are not allowed to do is washing and ironing of clothes, for which they can assist in finding you someone who could do that at a modest fee. The cottages are also serviced by a group of guards, whose job it is to keep a watchful eye during night-time and to ensure that your privacy is not compromised. Guards are normally on duty between 22:00 and 06:00.
