The Beach House is ideal for family getaways or get-togethers with friends! Set on the lake front, this spacious double-storey reed house accommodates up to 8 people. Self-catered with a fully equipped kitchen, hot water, braai/BBQ facilities, secure parking for 2 cars, day-time staff to assist and clean, and night watchman. There is now a supermarket in the village a short walk from the Beach House.
Cape Maclear is a unique village on Lake Malawi, 'the warm heart of Africa'. This village is located within a National Park and is surrounded by a protected nature reserve. The warm lake is filled with colourful cichlids (fish!), is ideal for snorkelling, kayaking, sunset boat cruises, and scuba diving (all accessible right next door). Within the village itself, you can eat at numerous restaurants, (including local fare) or simply enjoy the serene space within the Beach House's garden. This is the perfect break away from your usual routine!
Cape Maclear is a local village which is safe and welcoming! The traditional village has a history of fishing and farming, while the 'newer' side of the village is tourism which has steadily built since the 1990's.
  • Great spot for a relaxing weekend in Cape Mac! Very spacious house with many amenities and super helpful staff. Will definitely come back!

  • The house is amazing and the staff are extra helpful. We had a lovely time. The house is right by the beach where you can watch beautiful sunsets. There is a bar about 1minute walk from the house where you can go and unwind. Activities can be booked right next door or with the help of the staff at the property. It is well equipped as well if you want to cook. There’s also a small market within 5mins of walking where you can buy some groceries. We had such an awesome time at Renee’s place.

  • Better than expected, really fair price for the place.

    The Beach Cottage is a simple, cosy but comfortable house in the heart of Cape Maclear. There is now a supermarket in the village a short walk from the Beach Cottage making self-catering very easy.
    This two-bedroom cottage, while it may not be large, offers a 'homey' space right on the beach front. The living room and kitchen are open and lead onto a cosy porch. The front 'garden' area has beautiful beach sand and large shady trees. Walk 20 meters to the water's edge to have a refreshing dip in the lake, and enjoy the beautiful sunsets from the porch or beach.
    Chembe village is unique since it offers a traditional African experience within a protected national park. There are numerous restaurants within the village to choose from (including local fare) and plenty of curios along the main strip to browse. Boat cruises can be arranged through the managers.
  • We had such a relaxing and tranquil stay at the beach cottage. Thank you to Jewel for being so friendly and helpful.

    Mariska2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The beach cottage is a very pleasant humble house right by the beach as its name rightfully says. We had a great relaxing stay there, spending lazy days on the terrasse watching the villagers' life unfold by the lake. The littering on the beach is spoiling it a bit but that should not deter people to visit this still beautiful fishing village. On arrival, do not trust location of the beach cottage by Google maps, it is wrong... Bring filter coffee, there are coffee plungers available! Also bring other food supplies, no supermarket available nearby, however you find nice rice and obviously lots of fresh fish!!

    Lucie2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location and a peaceful place to stay.

    Jess2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Renée 's place is perfect. Just by the lake shore, with a beautifull view. The house is spacious, clean and decorated with taste. The outside area is also very well set. We really Loved our stay there. Best Airbnb after 6 weeks trip.

    Caroline2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • This place is truly a gem. Absolutely perfect location, incredibly comfortable, and with all the amenities one could want. I will definitely be coming back here!

    Robert2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • This place is absolutely beautiful situated right by the beach with a great view on the lake and sunset! Can only recommend this place.

    Caroline2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • The house is a cozy place located literally ON the beach. It is surrounded by both lodges and local houses which makes it easy to buy your own basic food for cooking or have a dinner at one of the lodges. We experienced power cuts while staying in Cape Maclear, however, Renee and Joe were very thoughtful about that: Extra lamps are working even without power and a gas cooker is ready for use. Everyone took really good care of us (while respecting our privacy, too) and it is just an amazing experience to fall asleep and wake up to the sound of waves. I definitely recommend staying at this lovely place.

    A lovely beachfront home with wonderful sunset views, set amongst a vibrant fishing community. The cottage has a lush garden with mature local trees with a baby-friendly swimming pool. There are 2 cool grass-thatched sitting areas set on the beach for cool sundowners.
    Self-catering. Resident cook, baby-sitter and staff. Good supermarkets at Mangochi Town Centre (20min drive). Fresh fish sourced locally. Electricity with all kitchen equipment, invertor back-up and gas stove back-up
    30 minute drive to the Lake Malawi National park and Cape Maclear for water activities and viewing of the famous cichlid fish. Several nearby bars and restaurants.
  • The house is really lovely and the staff keep it well maintained. The staff are super helpful and professional. The place is so peaceful and we got a really good rest. The pool is also great because the beach can be busy.

    Dorothea2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • a very clean place where the family can relax and forget about world stresses

    Tatenda2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Right on the beach with a wonderful covered jetty overlooking the lake. The pool is a great bonus! Lloyd was a wonderful cook and very helpful with our requests. My children 6 and 4 are already asking when we're going back.

    Andy2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful stay. Being an owner of a 4-star hotel myself, I would recommend this beautiful lake-shore home to anyone. Absolute value for money and more! You will not be disappointed. Apologies for the self-promotion here, but if anyone is looking for accommodation in Lilongwe, give the reasonably priced, 4-star Ufulu Gardens Hotel a try.

    Welcome to your home away from home! Book a few nights at our Malawi lakeside paradise and struggle to leave within the week. We'd love to welcome you and are happy to share our family home with you - though anyone not being/having a family is also most welcome and will be instantly part of ours ;)! A lovely breakfast at the beach bar is included. Feel free to use the kitchen or join us for lunch and dinner (additional charges apply). Visit our website padokolodge. jimdo. com for more info.
    Waking up and seeing the sunrise with all its pinks over the lake with all its blues right from your bed: there's nothing like it. Having a breakfast at our breakfast beach bar will ensure your start of the day to be as relaxed and uplifting as can be.
    Looking for the ultimate Malawian lakeside experience living as part of the fishing and farming community? This is your place to be! Our lodge is located near the heart of Chimatilo village with its friendly people.
  • Suwendy and Annet are the loveliest couple who gave us a true taste of Mangochi. They’re well integrated into the community and introduced us to local village life. Suwendy is also a great chef!

    Muhammad2019-03-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Sandy & Annet’s home with their gorgeous 2 boys. They have a beautiful spot on the lake in a very little village outside of Mangochi. It gave us an incredible insight into local village life, and has been one of our favourite places to stay during 2 month Africa trip. The family were so kind and we enjoyed some lovely food, drinks and conversation. Would highly recommend - you will be made to feel so welcome!

    Natalie2018-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely lovely family! Beautiful room and living space. We experienced breathtaking sunsets and sunrises over Lake Malawi, and views of the stars in the evenings were incredible. We initially only planned to stay for one night, but felt so comfortable and welcomed that we stayed one night longer.

    Daniel2018-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay at Padoko lodge. Suwendy and Annet are very friendly and their children are very cute. Delilah the dog also enhanced our experience. They live in a small village and when you dive in the lake you will be joined by children who help their moms washing clothes. Also the hot shower was a welcome luxury compared to the other places we stayed at!

    Jorine2018-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks to Annet, Sandy, their two adorable children, and their new puppy, we had an unforgettable lake Malawi vacation. The rooms were tidy and comfortable. We especially liked the outdoor seating area overlooking the lake, and the availability of hot showers after bathing. They are very involved in the community and have excellent suggestions for where to go and people to contact. I would highly recommend Padoka guesthouse to anyone looking for a quiet, scenic, and family friendly getaway to lake Malawi!

    Malawi, the "Warm Heart of Africa". These words are echoed when you arrive at this beautiful Colonial House on the shores of Lake Malawi. With breathtaking views across Monkey Bay we have hosted great explorers and Presidents alike. Guests can enjoy a wonderful breakfast on the front veranda as they watch Fish Eagles soar across the bay. While our rooms are simple, yet tastefully furnished, they also offer luxury comforts such as cotton linen, guest amenities and comfortable beds.
    Tranquil and romantic with a private beach our wonderful staff are at your service all day long. We offer access to other beaches and trips to Monkey Island via our water taxi. The local village offering fresh bread, fruit and daily picked organic veg is a mere kilometer away.

    Monkey Bay or Lusumbwe is a town in Mangochi which is in the Mangochi District in the Southern Region of Malawi. The town is on the shore of Lake Malawi and is one of the main ports on Lake Malawi. There is a supermarket and a traditional market in Monkey Bay. The nearest ATM is in the town of Mangochi about 55 kilometers away and western food options are limited. Although most residents live on the poverty line, you will find them to be very friendly and most accommodating.
  • Warren was a great host. He arranged a ride for me from the airport in Lilongwe and, check-in was easy. The lodge and rooms are beautiful. He has kayaks you can use which will make for a wonderful experience on Lake Malawi. Overall it was an extremely peaceful and enjoyable experience. I would return again!

  • Not much to say but I'll surely come back if I happen to come back to Malawi. Do not hesitate :-)

    Denis2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a hidden gem in Monkey Bay. It's very peaceful and far from all the hawkers of Cape Maclear. We had a great stay, it was clean and the staff were considerate and attentive.

    Fay2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely space in Monkey Bay. Amazing location right on the Lake, and Breakfast was fantastic.

    Brendan2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • We very much enjoyed the stay at the lodge. The staff is easy going en service minded. The other guests were relaxed and in for a chat or whatever. All in the African way, of course, but that’s an added value too, once used to it. Besides some walking, canoeing swimming or sailing there is not very much to do in Monkey Bay. It also is a developing country regarding the tourist industry. This has a lot of advantages, but also disadvantages.

    Janine2019-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • I almost don’t want to tell everyone how great this place is. It felt like our own little tucked away treasure in a peaceful corner of the lake. What bliss. It was like a whole holiday in two days and we could have happily stayed for a two weeks.

    Mel2019-06-16T00:00:00Z

  • Wonderful house. Host was quick to communicate and help with anything we needed. Frank is the house manager and he is great. Checked on us many times and took care of us. This is the best house on the Lake.

    Mike2019-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Dear Willard Our time at your Life's Good home over the Easter holiday was amazing. The house has all the amenities and was is well equipped. Loved the furniture which is out of this world. Frank was a very helpful and cheerful assistant and Chef Kwamwendo was amazing. The meals Chef made were very hearty! And will definetly go back for the fried Chambo fish. We are confident that once you have finished the construction of the swimming pool, the place will look great. Please may you organise Wi-Fi as we struggled to communicate the first night with family back home. For the time being; a mobile phone or two that is preloaded will go a long way and will have guests settle in well. Recommending the place to friends and family.

    You will be staying with a friendly couple Jay (Malawian) and Siobhain (Australian). We rent out each room individually. Each room has two single beds and a fan. One minute walk to the beach. 15 minute walk to the national park and otters point. Situated close to many lodges, restaurants and bars. There is an outside common area and inside common area to relax. The use of the kitchen is free of charge and you can buy fresh produce within 2 minutes walk from the house.
    As each room is rented individually you may be sharing the house (but not the room) with other guests as well. There is a shared toilet and cold shower for everyone. We also have two friendly dogs Lexie and Beanie who stay outside most of the time. Each room has a key and lock so you are free to come and go as you please :) There are no ATM's in Cape Maclear and it can be difficult to change money into Malawian Kwacha so it is best to bring enough Malawian Kwacha for your stay. Meals can be provided at a small extra cost between MK 1000-3000. The kitchen has two hotplates for use (when there is power) and cooking utensils provided. If there is no power and you wish to cook a fire can be prepared to cook on. We have a large freezer for use also dependent on power but no fridge.
    The neighbourhood is friendly and safe. In close proximity to the beach, national park and many lodges.
  • Everything was amazing! Staying at this place made me so happy. The hospitality of Siobhain and Jay was outstanding!!! They are so so nice. Siobhain even showed me around and gave me so many tips! The house is very nice. I could cook my food and I slept so comfortable! They have two beautiful dogs! I loved them and such cool neighbors! Also the location es so perfect. Nice restaurants around and a lot of bars. And the beach 1 min away! Thnx so so much Siobhain and Jay!

POWER – There will be times when ESCOM does not supply power.

  • Spacious lodge in a heavenly garden on a well-kept lake beach. Unique!

  • This was quite simply the most amazing holiday we have had. Absolutely stunning location......felt like paradise and all to ourselves. The pool area was great - we lived down there. We will definitely be back. Many thanks to Manfredi and his family.

    Lauren2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • I spent 3 nights at the Conforzi Lake house and had an absolutely fantastic time! The staff welcomed us very warmly upon our arrival, and provided us with a tour around each room and section of the Lake House to make sure we felt right at home. The decor in each room was lovely, and completed the Lakehouse-feel. My favourite part of the Lakehouse was the pool area, which was absolutely lovely to relax by during the day, and take a lovely swim in during the evenings. The beach and view of the lake was absolutely breathtaking, which made it the perfect place to relax. When we felt too lazy to cook, we we went to nearby resorts which were only a 5-10minute drive away. All in all, I had a great experience at the Conforzi LakeHouse.

    Ndondwa2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place just by the lake. Looks very nice in the pictures, but even better in reality. Definitely top 5 places I would like to retire to. Pretty fun to hear the monkeys running on the roof of the house. Kudos to the people of the house who were very nice and welcoming.

    Cristian2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Manfredi's place is an absolute gem ! It is absolutely incredible, with some of the best views of Lake Malawi that you can ask for ... The house, swimming pool, staff and the host was incredible !! We all ready planning our return trip to this magnificent house !!

The people in the village are lovely...especially the children who are eager to speak English to foreigners. I fell in love with the location and the people.

  • The place is great and hosts are friendly!

    Alexandra2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • All the basic amenities we needed and just across from Cape Maclear Scuba where we were diving. Super convenient, and Jay and Siobhain are the ideal hosts, always willing to help with local tips and whatever we needed. Great spot for catching up on our laundry to hang dry in their fenced in space as well. The only critique is the rooster next door that started at 3 and 4am. Bring earplugs! And have the fish curry at Thomas’ Restaurant next door. Yum!

    Diana2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed three nights at Siobhain and Jay and really enjoyed the time! Never before have we experienced such sincere friendliness and hospitality at Airbnb Hosts and have been able to benefit greatly from the helpfulness and the many good tips. The accommodation is incredibly clean, safe and in a perfect location. Both the interior and the backyard are great places to relax. The bedroom has good mattresses and mosquito nets. We will gladly come back and can recommend the property unreservedly!

  • Siobhain and Jay make you feel welcome right away. They just moved into a new house which is spacious and close to the beach and all the lodges. They are very warm and welcoming people that love to have a chat with you but also give you your privacy when needed. They have a small shady garden where you can hang out. We had a lovely meal and dinner together and had nice conversations with them. Also they helped us out with arranging activities against local prices and helped us with transportstion to our next destination. I would recommend everyone to stay here. It was one of our best Airbnb experiences so far.

    Freek2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Siobhain and Jay make you feel like at home. They are a very nice and friendly couple who help you in everything you can need. The place is situated in a nice place in Cape Maclear, just one minute walking from the beach and few minutes to the national Park. Totally recommended.

    Iosu2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Jay and Siobhain gave us a very warm welcome because we could join their barbecue party and good free food to start our Malawi trip. The house is clean, great to chill and relaxe and they help in any way they can to make your stay comfortable. They are just super nice people. Hope to see you again someday :)

    Anika2019-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Jay and Siobhain are friendly and accommodating hosts. We felt so welcomed and at home immediately. Locals know best and they gave us good advice! When we told people we were staying with Jay, they all knew him and became even friendlier to us. Location couldn't be more convenient, just a few steps to beautiful beach sunsets! The area is also safe and secure. Highly recommend!

    Lianne2019-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • Siobhain and Jay are great hosts, warm and generous with many local tips! The house is a few seconds walk to the beach with a lovely chill area outside. We had a really great time staying here and I highly recommend it! Such good value too.

    Juliet2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • An absolutely stunning house on the lakeshore with panoramic views and privacy. "Treetops" is a very accurate name.

    Catherine2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • I cannot recommend Treetops highly enough. The location is stunning, the views amazing, and the house spacious and beautiful. It is set amongst glorious shrubs and trees, and the beach is lovely to swim from if you walk a very short distance from the area immediately below the house. The description on the site definitely doesn't fo it justice.

    Ginny2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful house with amazing views of Lake Malawi. The house and gardens were immaculate. Also, there was a path to the beach below. We look forward to returning next time we are in Malawi.

    Nyanja cottage is a thatched house in the middle of Cape Maclear with stunning views of the lake and direct access to the beach. There are three spacious double bedrooms (all with mosquito nets & fans), a living area, a small kitchen and plenty of car parking space. It is owned by our family who live in the village and will be your hosts during your stay.
    Nyanja Cottage is a two storey thatched building right on Lake Malawi ("Nyanja" means "Lake" in the local language Chichewa). The cottage is fully-furnished with 3 spacious double bedrooms - two upstairs with a shared toilet and shower, and one large en-suite double bedroom downstairs. All rooms have mosquito nets and fans.There is a lounge and kitchen on the ground-floor. The cottage is very spacious and there is plenty of room to accommodate additional people if required. The Cottage is situated right in the heart of Cape Maclear Village with great views of the Lake and sunset, and easy access to shops and activities in the local village.
    Cape Maclear is part of the bustling local Chembe village, famous for fishing waters sports activities and amazing sunsets (this is the only part of Lake Malawi which is west-facing, so the sunset is unique!).
  • Des, Fitness, and the rest of the house staff were very accommodating, helpful, and friendly. We (group of 5 adults) had a great time staying at the house for two nights over the Independence Day weekend. As expected for an Independence Day weekend, the local scene was a little rowdier than what I imagine it is usually like, but we still had a peaceful and relaxing stay. The house is very conveniently located and was walking distance to all the bars/lounges/restaurants. It was also a great spot to meet locals living in the village as they often walk past the side of the house to do their washing/swimming in the lake. Des was very helpful in assisting us with arranging a day boat trip that took us to the nearby island for snorkeling, local food on the beach, and fishing eagle viewing. Kitchen is well stocked, although the electric stove is a bit slow for cooking (but staff will bring a charcoal stove if requested). Be sure to bring your own drinking water. There was also an abundance of ants in the bedrooms and patio, which the staff attempted to address during our stay. All that being said, the house itself is lovely and I'd recommend this listing for a weekend getaway on the Cape. You can't beat the incredible location or views!

    Gen2019-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • This cute cottage is right on the beach, with wonderful views from the garden and balconies. Plenty of space for a small group of people. Excellent hospitality with daily cleaning service and a guard. Smickey’s brother, Desmond, was available to make any kind of activity arrangements (though for us, a friend had done so where she was staying and we joined her). The beds are comfortable, with mosquito nets (though the pillows are a bit hard). Would highly recommend!

    Christine2019-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, great location, awesome host. Des is patient and extremely helpful. Made my Malawi stay special!!! Will be back there soon

    Angela2018-04-29T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful stay at Nyanja cottage. The position could not have been more perfect. Close to Gheko Lounge and within easy walking distance to all pubs and restaurants. Des was a great host and Christopher was always around for some extra help when needed including teaching us to play Bowa. Grace was always ready to clean up and her english was good. If we have one negative it was the bar fridge. For six people and being there for a couple of days we really needed a larger fridge/deep freeze but luckily we took a large cooler box. Otherwise we highly recommend you stay here .... Malawi certainly is The Warm Heart of Africa and Smickey and his brother Des prove that.

    Patricia Claire2017-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • Nyanja cottage is everything!!! The place looks so much better in person. All the rooms in the house are big and have the view of the lake. The rooms are equipped with mosquito nets and fans, which come in handy in summer. The place has its own security guard and there's always someone around if you require assistance. Smickey's brother, Desmond, was very very helpful in helping us settle in. I would advise that you go with cash on you as there's no ATM around the area and all the places we visited did not have swiping machines.

  • Francis and his team are very flexible. We had car troubles leading up to check in and Francis stayed up to check us in at 2AM once we finally arrived. He also provided many things we asked for as well as helped us find certain products in town. He is very helpful and friendly!

    Zach2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Francis, Mary, Joyce and Alice’ hospitality is absolutely unmatched. They organized transport within Monkey Bay and offered breakfast at a reasonable cost. The cottage is clean and comfortable with lovely hilltop views. It is close enough to the main road and town, but nestled away enough to give a home-stay/ village feel. Best of all, this guesthouse is Malawian-run and I would recommend it to anyone interested.

  • Its a nice place, i had an awesome time at Nkudzi Lodge. My wife actually bought fishes from the locals and the staff in the kitchen helped prepare it, i was really pleased with the service and i will sure visit sometime soon. I sure will recommend it to everyone who need a cool place to relax.

    Kingsley2019-07-29T00:00:00Z

    Andreas2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • The lodge is the place to go if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle! It’s set on a beautiful private bay. Everyone at the lodge is extremely helpful and friendly.

    Amelia2019-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • The owners/hosts of Nkhudzi Lodge Sam and Annie, and all their staff, were wonderful and very welcoming! Great location literally on the beach with an amazing view of beautiful Lake Malawi. Truly a great getaway to rest and relax, took a nap on the beach while listening to the peaceful sounds of the water. Food was reasonably priced and quite delicious! The bar and restaurant area is a great place to enjoy your meal with a gorgeous lakeside view, and a nice way to meet other guests at the lodge. I was expecting free WiFi since I had it was listed in other reviews and I had some work to do, but currently you have to purchase a voucher for WiFi access. No big deal though as there’s so much to see and do at the lodge and around the area. Would definitely recommend Nkhudzi Lodge! Thanks Sam and Annie for a wonderful stay!!

    Laravic2019-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • What a GEM! Sam, Annie, Mappa and the rest of the team were incredibly hospitable and made us feel right at home. We visited a few other lodges in and around the area during our stay and can say without a doubt that Nkhudzi Lodge is tops by comparison. The best beach, the best lake view, the best people, the best food and the best prices.

    Liz2019-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Thia place was amazing ans Sam the greatest of hosts. We sure will come again

    Khumbo2018-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • For the amount you pay and the location this place is a steal. It is right on the beach at Nkhudzi Bay and the fact it is secluded is just amazing. It also has a swimming pool, bar, and a restaurant. There are also two-three dogs that just hang out on the property. Very friendly. My only concern before arriving was the room. Turns out the room was good. There was a slight issue my gf and me had but it was resolved immediately by staff. To top it all off, free wifi. I enjoyed the lack of signal and peacefulness but the free wifi was icing on the cake. If we could have my gf and me would have stayed an extra day. All in all, this place is worth it and highly recommend. Will be going back soon.

    Self Catering - no cook - currently no pool fence, should be installed before December 2019. This beautiful Mediterranean styled cottage has been our home away from home for ages. Set on the beach on Africa's "Lake of Stars", it is the best place to relax and unwind. For couples, laze around in the sun sipping on your favorite brew. For families, spend some quality time with your kids playing outdoor games, or board games inside.
    Fans all round, a/c all round, generator to run the basics, staff, lots of space. Staff. There is a cook assistant. He can cover the basics, salads, breakfasts, rice, chips, roasts, potato bakes, but don't ask him to make a lasagne or similar. Feel free to teach him something new - he is a keen learner. Also a head of staff who looks after the place, a gardener who assists cleaning inside, and three night watchmen. Lots of freezer and fridge space, a dedicated drinks fridge, a water cooler accommodating the 20L containers - please take your own. Braai (barbeque) is available on request. There is a small jacuzzi style (not heated) sitting pool, overflows into smallish single level (1.5m deep) main pool (ONLY LADDER STAIRS), DSTV, board games, beach toys, air conditioning in all bedrooms, all beds have mozzie nets, generator available for power outages (please supply your own diesel in container provided). You will need to take all your food required - treat it as a camping outing as there is not a lot available there. You can get drinks, water, fuel, buy fish off the beach, but don't expect to find yoghurt or a decent steak - shops are limited. In the trading centre of Makawa nearby, there is a shop selling imported drinks (ask the staff -they know about it), and on the way to Maldeco there is a filling station for the generator requirements. Nearby is Club Makakola Retreat, offering a par 3 golf course and Spa treatments - will likely cost you to get in due to exclusivity of this resort. Almost next door is Sun n Sand Resort - lovely kids play areas including machine rides (like in a shopping centre coin feed), jumping castles, trampolines, and even an aeroplane hydraulic merry go round like at the fun fair, plus a shallow adventure pool. It will cost entry though per head. If you have a boat, there is a slipway available (recommend 19ft hulls and under) and the staff know what to do. If you don't know the area, I would recommend taking someone who knows the area with you (our boat boy) for your first trip to the Island, there are 2 sets of rocks that are dangerous, on the north east of the island and the south west, this one particularly dangerous as it is in deep water, appears out of nowhere. Behind the cottage is a nice pub on the hill, great for sunsets or just getting a birds eye view of the area.
    Nearby access to filling station, general store, village market (imported drinks and freezer ice), golf and spa at Makakola retreat, kids entertainment area at Sun n Sand, Pub on the hill for a treat at sunset, about 1 hour from Cape Maclear.
  • Big house at the beach side in Mangochi area. Great for relaxing.

    You will be staying with a friendly couple Jay (Malawian) and Siobhain (Australian). We rent out each room individually. Each room has two single beds and a fan. One minute walk to the beach. 15 minute walk to the national park and otters point. Situated close to many lodges, restaurants and bars. There is an outside common area and inside common area to relax. The use of the kitchen is free of charge and you can buy fresh produce within 2 minutes walk from the house.
    As each room is rented individually you may be sharing the house (but not the room) with other guests as well. There is a shared toilet and cold shower for everyone. We also have two friendly dogs Lexie and Beanie who stay outside most of the time. Each room has a key and lock so you are free to come and go as you please :) There are no ATM's in Cape Maclear and it can be difficult to change money into Malawian Kwacha so it is best to bring enough Malawian Kwacha for your stay. Meals can be provided at a small extra cost between MK 1000-3000. The kitchen has two hotplates for use (when there is power) and cooking utensils provided. If there is no power and you wish to cook a fire can be prepared to cook on. We have a large freezer for use also dependent on power but no fridge.
    The neighbourhood is friendly and safe. In close proximity to the beach, national park and many lodges.
  • Jay is a great host and always have helpful tips. He is very responsive to messages. The description and listing is accurate. You will be in the village and the community is warm and respects your privacy. The accommodations is basic but have most western amenities to make your stay comfortable and safe.

    Beaches in Malawi are for all however the beach in front of the cottage is part of the property. You may be seen as new or exciting to some of the Malindi Bay children or teenagers. If they are disturbing you please speak to one of the housekeepers or guard and they will have a word with them.
  • The Malindi bay cottage is perfect for groups and families to enjoy the lake and experience a true feel of the local lifestyle in Malawi. Keshia's place is beautiful, serene and peaceful for a perfect vacation away from the city. Mr Kasupe and Daudi are friendly and reliable hosts who made our stay great with everything we needed. Keshia was super responsive and helped us with directions to the cottage and provided recommendations to make our stay more pleasant. Definitely looking forward to visiting Malindi bay cottage again!
