Just wanted to say a massive thank you for helping us organise this. Was just what the doctor ordered.

Also just wanted to provide some feedback on the house. It was honestly lovely but might need just a few minor things to make the stay better.

- Each room had a mixture of fans. One room had 2 fans and the others had one. That loft room is incredibly warm and one fan doesn’t make any difference upstairs especially when there are 2 beds.

- Cutlery and utensils. Many of the glasses are leaking from the bottom and aren’t usable and there are only 3 or 4 forks and not enough for a group of 6.

- Lastly the balcony railing outside the kitchen is loose and wobbles and it a big hazard of anyone leans on it.

Other than that it’s a real gem of a place. Thank you again for helping us find it

Overall, Farol da Barra 5 is a fantastic place to stay. Nothing can beat the 180 degree view of the ocean from the veranda and the prime location with easy access to restaurants, pubs and other amenities.  The house is super comfortable and is equipped with everything one could possibly need to make your stay very comfortable.  The bedside fans were sufficient to keep us cool at night and we never even missed an AC.  We also slept with the big sliding doors to the veranda open to enjoy the lovely sea breeze.  The housekeeping staff and security are very efficient and friendly and they were always there to assist with anything.  Farol da Barra (and Barra) is now one of our favourite holiday spots.  Thanks Susan for recommending Farol da Barra and the great service from Up And Go.

We did not expect Moz to be as hot and humid as it were, so without Aircon in your room we had it very tough sleeping at night. The fans supplied is just not sufficient. Another problem is the road to Farol Da Bara once you leave the Tar road. I say Road but I use the word very lightly. You cannot drive this road without a proper off road vehicle with deflated tyres. Unfortunately I learned the hard lesson of not using the beach side to drive to Farol da Bara as I got fined MT 20 000 (R4000). Otherwise the house (Unit 5) has everything you need except for Aircon.
