Ideal for couples or families, a holiday, sabbatical, somewhere to get away from it all, write a book or recharge the batteries. The house has wonderful entertaining areas but also provides privacy so that everyone has enough space. The views are simply stunning. The house has three large en-suite bedrooms and a fourth family room with mezzanine floor and separate bathroom. Watch humpback whales from the deck from June to October, snorkle with whale sharks and dolphins year round and dive the world famous Manta Reef from Tofo. Alternatively relax on the miles of empty beaches, go game fishing or experience the warmth of the people and beautiful colonial setting of the sleepy town of Inhambane with its colourful market. Whilst the Indian ocean provides exciting diving, surfing and fishing, the bay of Inhambane is tranquil and serene dotted with islands and sand bars at low tide. Take a traditional dhow cruise and look for pansy shells on pansy Island. The beaches at the lookout have everything: on the North bay-side is a calm beautiful swimming beach whilst the south beach is fun and adventurous with great surfing but also more private and secluded. The dunes around the house provide a stunning setting and endless fun for children in a truly unique environment. The Lookout is fully equipped for a luxury self-catering holiday and is serviced daily by two dedicated staff members so there is nothing to do but to sit back and enjoy yourself!More

This house has been well thought out and took 10 people without any crowding. All the equipment you could need was provided and it was very clean. The only difficulty we had was the closest beach is not a good swimming beach, although very beautiful...More

Stayed here in April with friends. The house is located in a remote delevopment that takes about 30 minutes to get to from the main road. A 4x4 is a must since it is a sand road. Once there the place is incredible and the...More

I cannot really express how much we enjoyed our stay here. It is just a very special place. We have stayed in villas all around the world but never quite like The Lookout. The villa is in immaculate condition (it is brand new). Clean and...More
