      Beside the clear waters of Lake Malawi, lies this private four-bedroom Villa which opened in 2011 on Likoma Island. This large family villa is part of a bigger complex but stands separately from everything maintaining its privacy. The house is located on the South West corner of the island with uninterrupted views across the neighbouring island and on to mainland Malawi 72 km away. A year round sunset is a secret surprise, the only place on the island and probably the only place on the lake. It is a Villa for up to eight people, it is self-contained and fully staffed with a nanny, a cook, a housekeeper, ground staff and watchmen. Getting to Likoma Island requires a charter flight, so we wouldn't suggest it for less than 4 days, but for a group who want some relaxing time by the lake, this would be a lovely place. The Villa comprises of four bedrooms, three of which are ensuite the other, a twin room, ideal for children with a bathroom located right outside the door. Eight people can stay in the house with access to the private beach, to the kitchen and to the large living area. A beautiful pool is available for the lazy days when the lake seems too far away. The turquoise and dark-blue fresh water of Lake Malawiis literally clean enough to drink. Turked into a calm lagoon close to the lake's eastern shore lies Likoma Island, a small Malawian oasis just a stone throw from the Mozambique border.

This Villa was voted one of the to 10 most romantic destinations in the world. Area Information Far offshore from Chintheche, but only 7km from Mozambique, lies a small island covering an area of 17km², called Likoma Island. Nearer to Mozambique than Malawi, Likoma Island is a small island in Lake Malawi. Its inhabitants are mostly fishermen, but there are a couple of tiny villages, one bush road, a few vehicles and a few bicycles. There is one town, Likoma Town, and (amazingly) here you'll find St Peter's Cathedral - the third largest cathedral in Central Africa! Built in 1903, this remarkable building is about the same size of Winchester Cathedral and is of real architectural and cultural interest. Inside, you'll not only find a lovely working cathedral, but also a great deal of carved soapstone and stained-glass windows kept in perfect condition. The island's sandy beaches and secluded coves have some of the best snorkelling and diving in Malawi.

      The SpaceKusangalala means 'to be happy' in Chichewa. It is a quiet, private and romantic space and as such it's not a 'party place'. For that, you can head on down to Kande Beach, 20 km away :) The bungalow is made from sustainable materials and is on stilts. It is made from timber with hessian walls that are strong and weatherproof, and mosquito gauze for windows. There are shutters on the outside to protect from the elements but the system allows for coolness and is effective. There is a mezzanine upper level for the main bedroom that has an open balcony and a beautiful view of the garden and lake. It has its own loo and basin. The main shower area is outside wrapped around an magical tree, and has a loo and basin as well. The grounds have two more open showers for campers. The price is for the house, but there will be small amount extra for campers. There are great staff to look after you and they are super hospitable. The running water is from the lake and safe drinking water is from the borehole. There are excellent quality mosquito nets for all beds. The caravan allows for a single or a couple, and is in its own private space. This unique location is for those that enjoy being in touch with nature. The lake is clean and bilharzia- free, as most locations in the Northern region are. The house is well finished and comfortable, but very open. As it is primarily my personal space, I welcome you to enjoy it and be happy :) Guest AccessYou can access all areas! Bring towels if you can, but sheets are provided. Please arrive before dark. Interaction with GuestsI live in Lilongwe, the capital, but can be contacted. However, my staff there on site are very used to guests and can assist you with anything you may need. They can contact me directly as well. The house is self- catering though so bring your own drinks and food. There is a well known trading centre nearby where you can buy most things you will need. The NeighborhoodBandawe is near Chintheche (10km) on the lake shore road. It is 45 minutes south of Nkhata Bay, 20km from Kande Beach/ Horse, and 1 hour from Mzuzu town. The nearest shop with most things you may need is Chintheche at People's shop. Kusangalala is very quiet and has lovely Malawians around it who are gentle and respectful. We have our own beach that the locals use for fishing but its very private having rocks on either side of it. There are only a few families around there and we know them all. Play with the kids, and get out in a canoe if you get a chance! Visit Chintheche Inn, Makusi Beach Lodge and Kande Beach for great food and fun vibes. Getting AroundChintcheche is very accessible by most 'matola's (minibuses). Kusangalala is next to a lodge called Sunga Moyo and you can follow signs to this lodge. The signpost is in between Makusi Beach and Chintheche Inn turnoffs on the lakeshore road (M5). Other Things to NoteThere are solar panels and inverter/ batteries for lights and charging phones and laptops, as we don't have main electricity. Please don't overload the system. Laptops and phones are fine but charge during day, not overnight. Take laptops and hard-drives incase you want to watch movies:) The fridge and top stove cooker use gas. There is not oven, only a braai/ bbq. Turn the gas on and off at the bottle. The fridge is turned on by pressing the bronze button in for 30 seconds and then lighting it and holding the button for another 20 seconds or so. The fridge should be on when you arrive, however. The cooker is a top gas cooker only, but there is a braai/ BBQ. There are lodges nearby with restaurants if you don't feel like cooking. The staff quarters is ideal for nannies or any staff you may also like to bring. We have sun-beds and a canoe but please don't go out in rough weather (disclaimer form should be signed)
