For private and spacious beach living, our Family Houses – Ulisa and Yofu – sit at the back of the main beach under the shade of ancient baobab or mango trees.
Ulisa is a large two-roomed house with a full bathroom between the bedrooms. Double doors in the master bedroom open to a spectacular view across the white sand to the lake. The second room sleeps three children in single beds, one of them hung from the roof!
Hidden behind a mango tree is peaceful Yofu. The bright, airy main bedroom has double doors leading out onto a secluded section of the beach where your own dhow-lounge space awaits. The shared full bathroom has an open-air bathtub and shower on the second level, which makes for magical stargazing while soaking. The second bedroom sleeps two children.
Both houses enjoy expansive outdoor lounging and dining areas.
From a headboard made out of a dugout canoe to a swing bed and outdoor sofas made from old fishing boats, these quirky details are part of what makes staying at our Family Houses extra fun! They are both ideal for small families wanting to spend as much time on the beach and in the lake.
