Each house is fully equipped and comfortably appointed. In the 3x3 bedroom houses your family and friends can spread out with ease between the three bedrooms and two bathrooms that sleep and accommodate 6 people. An open plan design of the dining, kitchen and living areas makes those rainy days so much more comfortable. These all centre towards the verandas that unashamedly stare on the beach views to either side and magnificent ocean ahead. An enclosed courtyard in the centre of each house provides sheltered space should the wind pick up. The 3x2 bedroom houses overlook the pool area and also have spectacular sea views. Each bedroom has a double bed and single bed with an en suite bathroom. The living and kitchen area seperate the 2 bedrooms. There is also an enclosed courtyard.

Just 200 metres from Casa John lies the relaxing setting of Casa Amarelo. This is the first house built by John and Jessica Youens thus exhibiting many happy family comforts as well as memories. The house design is different to Casa John as the 2 of the 4 bedrooms (with en suite bathrooms) are joined to the house via wooden pathways. The open plan kitchen and living area are fully equipped and comfortably designed. Alfredo and staff are on call to see to your needs as well as overseeing daily cleaning. The spacious veranda oversees the magnificent ocean and Tofu monument, with easy access to Casa John's swimming pool.

Private Beach

About Us

John Fishing

Casa John forms the last outpost on the Tofinho Beach, just 20 kilometres south of Inhambane. Its position provides spectacular coastal views, the sea spray tingling the decks of the six luxury houses. Resident whale sharks loll in the immediate waters, competing for space when migratory Hump Back Whales make their appearance from early June to October. From the living areas, dolphins can be sighted chasing their catch, frustrating sea birds and interrupting your afternoon siesta.

 

Things To Do

Eating Out

Travel goes way beyond the sights and sounds of a destination. Eating out is an excellent opportunity to experience local culture. Tofo offers a variety of dining options, anything from freshly caught seafood to homemade pizza.

Take To The Ocean

Whale Watching:

From June to November, the Humpback whales are highly visible along the coast, making this the perfect time of year for whale watching. It is not even necessary to go on a boat to see these exquisite creatures, as Casa John has perfect see views of these marine creatures which come close to the shore line, sometimes appearing only metres from the shore. Seeing these marine giants in their natural environment is an experience and opportunity you won't want to miss.

Diving & Snorkeling:

The Tofo marine area is increasingly gaining a reputation as one of the best diving spots in the world. It is highly likely that you will spot whale shark on route to a dive and have the opportunity to snorkel with it. Invariably mantas circle you in numbers every time you go down on scuba off the famous Manta Reef. Also on show are cheeky devil rays, turtles, large schools of tropical fish, reef shark and the elusive harlequin shrimp.

Surfing:

Casa John welcomes all surfer's to Mozambique. The best time to visit with your surfboard is in June, July and August, but if you don't mind the on shore wind which blows pretty often, then surf season can last from February to October. The beaches are exquisite and filled with an enjoyable local vibe in the markets. A wetsuit will be necessary in the surf season, but for the rest, your board shorts will do just fine. Inhambane has some of the fast, hollow waves, but there is plenty of coast left to explore if you wish to find other world class breaks.

Try Fishing:

Casa John is superbly situated on a rocky cliff face, allowing excellent access for shore fishing. Local charters for deep-sea fishing are available and spear fishing is permitted off the entire coast.

 

Information

Getting Here

Casa John is located on the pristine cost line of Tofinho, 20 minutes' drive from Inhambane city, Inhambane Province, on the south coast of Mozambique. Tofinho is situated 500 km north of Maputo, and a 4 X 4 vehicle is not necessary as the road is mostly good condition tarmac, although some areas are affected by potholes and in need of some maintenance. However the last 1 km is a dirt road. All roads are clearly sign posted. For detailed directions click here...
