Fantastic way to enjoy this slice of mozambican paradise. House 6 is great and has everything you need for a great holiday. Santa Maria is a truly fantastic part of uncommercialised Mozambique, definitely worth a visit

We had a very fun road trip from Maputo, through the Maputo Elephant Reserve (saw giraffe and hippos) and then finally out to Santa Maria. Hetta was very friendly, helpful and accommodating! The lodge is great, with a fun beach bar and amazing views. It's a bit of a hike to a good beach, but that's part of the adventure....

This really is a magical location and what makes it more so, is adventure of getting there whether it be by skiboat across the 35km long bay or through the mystical elephant reserve by 4 wheel drive. Nothing is too much for management and they make you feel welcome from the time you arrive to the time you leave..... Great...

Had a lovely time. The houses are spacious, clean, comfortable and well equipped. The Resort is conveniently located with lots to do at both high and low tide. Good information available in the houses. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We arrived at low tide and had to walk a long distance to the house. However it was all worth it. Friendly service, Relaxation and great sunsets all added towards one of the best breaks we ever had. Cannot wait to visit again.
