Lovely home in Vilanculos
My experience in Johannes’ house was not good at all. So, I don’t recommend anyone to stay in Johannes’ house, for your safety and commodity better to stay in a hotel where you have food, internet and some people around. Vilanculos is a town with not touristic infrastructure, so …
I am happy that Valentina was not our first guest and that everyone who reads our other feedbacks can understand that she is telling a lot of nonsense. On her arrival she was served a welcome diner which she devoured with much delight. Coffee was offered, too (brewed with the delicious water of our own source). We provide a mobile phone with a local SIM-card for our guests to ensure they can make local calls (taxi, or any other needs) and that they are reachable without spending on roaming. Shampoo and hand soap are located in the bathroom. Going to the centre by taxi costs ca. MZN 100,- (USD 3,-) - one way- no matter if you are local or tourist. (see previous feedback). A reliable (!) taxi driver who goes to the airport, waits upon your arrival and brings you back to our house costs ca. MZN 500,- (USD 16,-) - a normal price paid by locals and tourists - paid directly to the taxi driver. How can Valentina claim that locals would pay an amount so little that it wouldn't even cover partially the cost of petrol? I suppose she mixed up something due to a language barrier. Casa Rex is distant less than 2km and yes, I do recommend it too (to anyone who can afford it). The beach of Vilanculos is regarded part of the 100 most beautiful beaches in the world and being not overcrowded is an advantage and not a handicap for most people. This listing is clearly quoted as a self catering place and with different prices for single or double use (as common in most parts of southern Africa). For a person with such a subjective sense of danger it is even more astonishing that she brought external people to stay over night without telling anyone in advance - refusing to adapt the booking on AirBnb, refusing to pay what is clearly quoted on our listing and severely compromising our own sense of safety.
