Both the Beach House and the Cottage are self-catering,
but excellent service is available to help in both the
kitchen and for general cleaning.
The Beach House stands on the very edge of the dunes. It
has four large bedrooms, all with twin beds, mosquito
nets and en-suite bathrooms. The spacious lounge area is
furnished in traditional colonial style with many old
maps, prints and photographs of Nyasaland, as Malawi
used to be called, and the immediate lakeshore area. The
house, and its unique content, have been called ‘a
tribute to the historic and present day appeals of Lake
Malawi as a tourism choice’.
A spacious patio and an open conservatory setting with
many pot plants offer the very best of outdoor life in
A well-equipped kitchen, with a large refrigerator and a
freezer, allows the widest range of self-catering; house
servants are available to help. By special arrangement,
and at small extra cost, a qualified cook made be made
available to help with all meals, but a few day’s notice
is generally required.
Garden, beach cleaning and nocturnal security services
A fruit orchard, set in lawns at the rear of the house
provides lemons and mangoes in season. The local fish –
chambo, kampango, ncheni and the whitebait-like
usipa – can often be bought at dawn from local fishermen on the
adjacent beach although some negotiation is both
expected and advised.
The adjacent Beach Cottage which is much smaller, even
closer to the beach and more intimate [pictures below,
lower slideshow] may be rented separately or together
with the Beach House.
Together the two properties offer enticing possibilities
for exclusive ‘think-tank’ sessions, seminars or
corporate retreats for groups up to 12 in number.
