About Vista Abril

This four bedroom luxury eco property is located within the exclusive Machangulo Private Nature Reserve. The home is nestled in pristine dune forest looking out over a naturally protected Indian Ocean bay and has a contemporary design finished with natural textures. The property is made of of two buildings. The main 'hub' building has spectacular views throughout, includes two en-suite bedrooms, the kitchen and a lounge and dining area. The pool deck across the front of the building is the perfect place to take advantage of the amazing wind protection that the property enjoys. A walkway leading down towards the turtle nesting beach reveals the beach-house, nestled in the dune forest with two bedrooms and bathrooms, perfect for sleeping to the sound of the ocean.The property has two full time staff to help with breakfast and handling cleaning, tidying and laundry and a night guard for peace of mind. The property is North facing and therefore protected from the prevailing wind. For surfers a consistent right hand wave breaks at Ponta Abril just 200 meters from the beach house. For wind surfers and kite surfers there are often excellent conditions beyond the protection of the bay.Low tide reveals a 60 meter long tidal pool towards the point that is ideal for calm water swimming, snorkelling and for children to paddle. However, this is a wild Indian Ocean beach without lifeguards so caution is required.

Safari: The Machangulo Private Nature Reserve has unspoiled flora and fauna. Only 45 minutes South is Maputo Special Reserve - Peace Parks with Elephant, hippo, crocodiles, giraffe, zebra, impala, monkeys and more. Bird life is spectacular throughout.

Beach: North facing, wind protected view of entire bay by Ponta Abril. No other properties in sight. At low tide calm lagoon areas and rock pools are typically accessible for swimming.

Family friendly: Care required with young children due to wild ocean beach and some unprotected edges of decking.

      We stayed at Vista Abril for 10 nights and it was an amazing experience.  This beautifully designed eco (low impact) house is tucked away amongst the forest and greenery of Machangulo reserve.It definitely is a piece of paradise - the views are to die for, the beaches stretch forever and you can swim during low or high tide.It doesn't get better than this - well maybe a month extra will do.  We came back relaxed and well rested.
