The SpaceOur place is a Rural Family Home-stay. It is peaceful, remote and unique. There is lots of open space around to explore and you can take walks into pristine nature. We use creative building methods and materials. Life is simple and very rustic.There is no TV or WIFI. If you want, you can meet Zulu families or visit the community project that we are involved with. Guest AccessThere are two bathrooms which are shared by everybody. One is inside the main house off the veranda, and has a shower and toilet. The shower water is solar heated, so it means you have to take your shower when the water is hot. The other is an outside bathroom with a composting toilet and a cold shower. Most of the year it is hot enough that you will not mind a cold shower. You will need to bring your own laptop with USB modem or smart phone if you want internet or computer access. We suggest you bring a hard drive with movies you want to watch or a good book. Interaction with GuestsWhen you are here, you will find yourself in the midst of family life which includes friends that may be staying with us at the time. Everybody eats meals together and shares the veranda area, paddle pool and kitchen. Often there are visitors, plus garden work and other projects going on, so you won't feel alone! If you want to retreat and read (or write!) your book, you can easily do so. If you like to do exercise or yoga, say so, we might be keen to join you. We are always available to advise you on trips around the local beaches, game reserves and dive destinations. The NeighborhoodOur piece of land was given to us by an Induna (Zulu headman) who falls under the Chief. Our Induna is responsible for our small community of around 200 families, most of whom live a very traditional Zulu life. Some nights you can stand outside looking at the bright milky way and listening to the African drumbeat coming from across the valley. Our family is involved with the surrounding community through our involvement with the NGO, Barefoot Community Works (find us on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)). Furthermore, Charley is a karate instructor and trains kids from the community when he is not travelling the world for his job. We are at the edge of Isimangaliso Wetland Park, a world heritage site.

The SpaceThe house is a single storey dwelling - simple but comfortable. Its in a quiet and safe area that gets the sea breeze. There is small yard shaded by a large mango tree and internal parking space for one saloon car. The place is fully equipped as a home - I live here with my wife and 2-year-old for some months of the year. In addition to all the stuff mentioned elsewhere, there are some kids' toys, a high chair, a baby car seat, a travel cot, a cool box, a barbecue and outdoor chairs all of which can be used by guests. Guest AccessTenants have access to the entire property, but one room contains some of the owners tools etc. This room also contains a desk and chair and printer, so can be used as an office if necessary. Interaction with GuestsThere is someone who can assist guests with problems if they arise. There is a night guard (paid by the host) who can run errands if necessary, and if required we have a very efficient and reliable maid who cleans and can cook Mozambican food 5.5 days a week (paid by the guest [about £70 per month]). The NeighborhoodThe area is well serviced with small shops and bars and a local bakery. Cafe Sol and the Sommerschield Guest house are near by - both serve food, and Cafe Sol has free wifi access. There is an ATM on Julius Nyerere about 5 mins walk away. Clube Maritimo is a 15 minute walk down the hill (Julius Nyerere) on the beach: it has a good restaurant and nice outdoor swimming pool (400mets entry). Getting AroundThere's room for a saloon car on the driveway (bit of a squeeze, but I used to keep a Subaru Forester there no problem. If you are driving anything bigger, its fine to leave on the street - the night guard is there and besides, its a very safe area, and neither I or any neighbours have had any problems. Other Things to NoteLooking for long term (1 months or more) tenants only. Because different guests require different things I put together the price depending on what you need. Some require a big TV / internet package, others don't care for that; some would like a maid, others are fine without, etc. The basic price quoted covers the rent, night guard, water and gas. Guests buy credit for the electricity meter. If you want a maid or a certain TV/broadband package, let me know and I'll organise and add to bill as required.

                        The SpaceThe property borders on the Isimangaliso wetlands, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and land and marine reserve, known for its lake system, turtle hatching sanctuary and unique ancient tribal fishing systems (among other things). The chalet is rustic, made of wood and thatch construction. It consists of two separate bedrooms each sleeping 2 persons (with additional sleeper couches in each room suitable for children). There is a separate open plan kitchen fitted with fridge, stove top, microwave, crockery, cutlery and other self-catering necessities. There is a small deck leading into a private plunge pool. An open-fire braai (barbecue) facility allows for cooking under the African sky. The chalet is designed to ensure privacy. It is built among the natural bush land and uses the indigenous trees to provide shade and ambiance. Guest AccessThe chalet shares the grounds of Kosi Bay Lodge ('the Lodge'). While an independent operation, you are allowed to use the Lodge facilities should you wish to (restaurant, bar, TV area, communal pool and guided tours). From the chalet, it is a short walk down to the shoreline of the nearest freshwater lake (perfect place for a drink at dusk!), or a short drive to Kosi Mouth and surrounding ocean beaches (note, that permits are required from the local Parks Authorities). The Lodge can provide assistance to you in the process of securing these permits. Interaction with GuestsI live overseas and so will not be able to meet you in person. The Kosi Bay Lodge reception will assist you in checking in and dealing with any queries you may have. The NeighborhoodYou will be on the grounds of a UNESCO World Heritage site. There are many things that make this area unique:- beautiful beaches, freshwater lakes where you can game view and/or fish (conditions apply), snorkeling, surfing, and turtle nesting area. We would recommend Kosi Bay Mouth, Black Rock beach, Banga Nek, and spending a day out on the boat exploring the freshwater lakes with one of the guides from the Lodge. We also recommend a day trip to the Tembe National Park, a beautiful big-5 national game reserve about ~50km from the chalets. Kosi Bay Private Chalet's has been developed as an initiative between investors and the local community to help bring employment and development to the area. Most of the team are locals and are super friendly, always happy to help, and want to make your stay memorable. Have a chat with them and get some local, insider knowledge of the area. Please note though, English is not the first language for all in the area, so please be patient with the team as we practice. Getting AroundThere is no public transport in the area, so you will need your own car (preferably a 4x4) to see the area. Alternatively, the Lodge provides daily excursions by boat and 4x4 to all the highlights in the area. Other Things to NoteOnce off the main road, the tracks are very sandy. While not necessary, a 4x4 vehicle is recommended to get to the chalet. A 4x4 will also be required for the other recommended areas to visit due to the sandy access.

Access to the city is difficult due to the unpredictable weather of Maputo Bay and the Ponte Torres channel between Machangulo and Inhaca Island can be perilous for the small local sailing boats called Dhows. Santa Maria is the main village. You will see dhows unloading supplies from Maputo at the jetty. Small shops are dotted around. The most useful being Philemon’s and Orlando’s that sells biscuits, sweets and drinks and other dry goods. There is a bakery that makes fresh bread (Pao as it’s called in Portuguese), a market selling tomatoes and onions. A new hairdressing salon has just opened. The Santa Maria Machangulo peninsula has a rich variety of wildlife habitats: rare coastal forest, wetland, some small area of savannah grassland as well as the mangroves. During your stay you can see hundreds of creatures from the little hermit crabs scuttling along the waters edge to dolphins surfing the waves. There has been much investment in educating the local population. 2 clinics have been built in the area as well as 2 schools. There is a significant Wildlife project, which entails a Turtle monitoring program aimed at protecting the nests of up to 200 leatherback and agree turtles along the beach.
