A 5 star house This is one of the most beautiful houses that we have stayed in. There are 4 separate bungalows all with full bedroom suites and indoor/ outdoor shower all having ocean view. It’s as good as a private 5 star hotel. Mendes and all staff are very good and good quality and cleanliness was excellent. Beach was peaceful and quiet. A beautiful view every minute of the day.
We've been traveling in Mozambique for the last 4 years and Kanimambo is definitely the best house we've visited so far. Beautiful, well kept, easy access to the beach, AMAZING staff...all of it in the best Mozambican beach.
Amazing house in a special place in the world.
The Machangulo Private Reserve is one of the most amazing places on earth.
The photos do not do the property justice. The home is magnificent with large bedrooms and bathrooms that all have a sea view. The staff were waiting to assist us with luggage and unpacking on arrival. Mendes is a fantastic chef and prepared delicious meals. Julie was quick to respond to all our queries. We will definitely go back to Kanimambo.
For the second time we've rented one of the most beautiful houses at the beach. We are preparing for the third visit… can't get enough. The staff is amazing, the beach is awesome, the house is perfect.
Wonderful house in a wonderful place. To repeat soon.
It was one of my best vacations ever. The place is beautiful and well maintained. The staff is excellent and they couldn't do enough for us. Especially Mendes. What a jewel. Totally professional and organised. The food was excellent. We went through the border in 30 minutes. We did all our shopping at Shoprite as you suggested and found everything we needed.

Dear Julie and Mike. Thank you for sharing your fantastic house with us for a few days. It was an unforgettable experience. We loved the architecture, decoration, view, beach, sea, well ... everything. The rooms were perfect and everything was spotless. We had everything we needed - well, maybe not great Internet, but that was a welcome and needed break from our usual busy lives. The staff you have here is also fantastic. What a great cook Mendes is and how nice and efficient the rest of the staff all is. Thank you.
