Kaya MJ is a large, airy holiday home, perched up on a sand dune overlooking the warm Indian Ocean near the Barra lighthouse in Inhambane, Mozambique.

The beach at Praia da Barra is a one minute walk down the dune.

Kaya MJ is a two bedroom establishment, each with a top quality en suite shower. The property is arranged to accommodate five people very comfortably (a maximum of 6 people permitted).

Each bedroom is 4m square - one has a king-sized bed, the other has three single beds. Bedding, bathroom towels and mosquito nets are all provided. The house has a large open plan lounge and dining space (8m x 5m), along with a good-sized kitchen. A huge covered decking area outside measures 8m x 8m. The property is set in its own substantial grounds amid palms and cashew trees.

The house is of traditional construction, using ironwood, reed and palm, with open rafters helping to keep it cool and breezy.

Kaya MJ was established as a beach holiday house for a British family of five, who are only able to visit once a year. To keep the staff busy and also in the spirit of encouraging visitors to this wonderful spot on the Indian Ocean, the owners are happy to offer bargain rates (outside peak season).

Facilities 4/5

Overall 5/5

We loved everything about the Kaya MJ. We had a great time. It was nice that you could see the ocean from the house. And the well-stocked kitchen with great value kitchen equipment was very helpful. Tena and Vasco was very friendly and helped us a lot. The kitchen can do with a microwave and a toaster didn't work and the house has an ant problem But except for that everything els was perfect.

Thanks for you great service from Up And Go. We will use your service in the future.

An all-round 5 stars! We had a lovely time. Arthur and Dina were lovely and really looked after us. The place was just perfect for us...the only down side was saying goodbye! Would love to go back there again one day!
