Here, our young travelers and interns find a laid back place to live.

Casa do Mar is one of the most popular houses in Guinjata. It was one of the first houses in the bay, and has been here for more than 50 years! The house is owned by the government, but was rented by Guinjata resort. Since the resort closed down, we (Guinjata Dive Centre) have independently taken it over.

Accommodation:

The house sleeps 17 guests, with a mix of sleeping arrangements. There are three double rooms with en-suites on the ground floor, two of which have outside doors leading onto the patio. Upstairs, there is one single room, two twin singles and two rooms with three single beds in (see pictures below). These bedrooms share two bathrooms on the ground floor. All our beds have mosquito nets. Rooms are cleaned daily, and clothes washing will be done on request (no additional fee).

We offer catered and self-catered packages. If you choose catered, we have a professional chef at your disposal. He will provide fresh Pao’s in the morning, a large late brunch and substantial evening meal. In addition to braais etc, we can arrange fantastic fresh local seafood caught the same day. It is up to you whether you would like us to provide everything, or to buy your food for him to cook. Please just let us know your plans in advance, so we can prepare accordingly!

Kitchen:

If you prefer to go self or partially catered, the house is equipped with the following utensils and facilities: Pots, pans, cutlery, plates, cups, toaster, braai grid, electric kettle, 4 plate gas stove with oven, 2 plate electrical stove, cooking and braai utensils, cutting boards, 2 fridges and 2 deep-freezes.

Dive Centre Facilities:

Caso Do Mar is just 50 meters away from the Dive Centre. At the Dive Centre we have a secure kit room where you can leave all personal diving equipment, so you don’t need to be carrying it backwards and forwards each day.
We also serve drinks at the Dive Centre, where you can start a tab. We offer everything from R+R to 2M’s (local Mozambican beer) to beer shandy’s.
In June this month we installed a brand new deck on the beach, with a lovely view of the ocean and great atmosphere to relax when you aren’t in the water!

Please see the FAQ’s or get in touch with any other questions about staying in Caso Do Mar! We look forward to meeting you here.
