Casa Ria exceeded all expectations. The unit was serviced on a daily basis. Casa Ria also offers a fantastic sea view as well as a “lekker braai” area.

The unit also has all cutlery and personal requirements. No need to bring everything from home. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The unit can be accessed by 4X2. The air cons in three of the five bedrooms help for the humid summer nights.

There is a Checkers in town (Xai-Xai) which is very clean and offers most of the groceries that can be purchased in S.A. The restaurant at the beach of Chongoene Holiday Resort has Wi-Fi.

We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend.

Casa Ria was absolutely beautiful and I would like to stay there for a couple of days instead of using it as a “sleepover”. Hopefully in the near future.

The staff we met were friendly and helpful as well as one of the co-owners we met.

The views from our cabin were something from a different world which we really enjoyed and found it relaxing after a long journey from Pretoria and Inhambane.   The facilities around the cabin were great for braaing although it would have been better with the sea view from the balcony.  The restaurant was very pricey and for that reason we didn’t really spend much time there, might be more acceptable for in-season travellers that have no other choice.

There were no vendors which was fantastic but the day we left for Pomene one of the workers told us that we have to pay 250 MT for the wood we used that was at the braai the previous day. It was no problem to pay but I’ll suggest that they inform you about this beforehand.  

I can also suggest that the community in the area also get together to clean the beach and get rid of all the plastic debris on the beach.

Friendliness: Everyone is SUPER friendly and just want to please, it has been such a long time since we have experienced service and people really wanting to please and enjoy something for someone else!

Cleanliness:  Fantastic and super surprised that they even did our washing for free

Facilities: The only thing we really needed which was not at the unit was a “snake catching stick”. The facilities offers absolutely everything you need for a hassle free awesome holiday experience

Overall:   We enjoyed that there was no TV or electronics and you could not connect to anything or anyone. Secluded and being the only one on the beach everyday was awesome – gives you a true island feel

This was such an awesome experience and holiday. The culture and people of Mozambique are truly awesome. The kids enjoyed it so much. We had encounters with 2 snakes but the locals has assisted us immediately to remove the snakes. The house has such a lovely set up and we enjoyed our stay tremendously – just a little too short. Thank you for all the tips and travel arrangements upfront, this REALLY helped us a lot!
