We went for a short 2 day stay in Casa Algodoal Beach Villa.
Upon arriving there were still guests inside the Villa. We had to wait at a restaurant and get hold of the owner/agent to clean the place and check us in.
When entering the Villa it looked very clean and neat, only to discover the stove does not work, and the kettle also doesn't work.
We then lend the Guarda's kettle (the security guard on the premises),we were promised Wi-Fi as well, it went on and off the whole time, I came to a conclusion the previous people probably used up the data, again we had to ask the agent to please help out with this.
When traveling you don't feel like running around searching for data, non working kettles and broken stoves other than that the bedding was clean and we had a nice braai with our own wood.
BE AWARE BEFORE YOU BOOK!!
My vehicle got damaged by the staff of Casa Algodoal during my stay there. The guard broke my vehicle's side mirror off from my vehicle, causing a lot of trouble with my trip back to South Africa.
The owner refuse to communicate and the travel agency, Travel2mozambique is of no assistance.
At time of arrival we had to wait several hours for the previous tenants to leave the house before we could enter the house.
There was also no electricity, no glasses, no kettle and the kitchen was in a very bad condition. Very dirty.
I was very pleasantly surprised by this very quaint cottage. I was a bit apprehensive by all the openness that I could see on the pictures on the website, but my family and I were overwhelmed by they beauty of the place when we arrived. Casa Algodoal, is a short walk down to the most incredible beach in the world, and close to the 'town center' where the market is and all the places to eat.
The house has everything you need to make your stay very comfortable.
We will definitely be going back there.

Not for those with very small children, for anyone else this is a great place, fantastic views, comfortable house, with plenty of space for 5 or 6.
The house is everything I expected and more. I love the fact the house is completely open and everything is made of wood. It makes it a little Robinson Cruisoe experience. The view is absolutely brilliant. The kitchen is perfect, with a big table. Outside there is even a pizza oven! The garden is wel maintained. The only little downside is that the mattresses on the beds need some renewal as they have some holes.
Go downstairs to a tiny cafe where Maria serves amazing fruit shakes (or coffee and little pastries) on the beach.
