The Beach House, on North Beach, Chintheche, overlooks silver sands facing down Lake Malawi. It is perched on the very edge of the dunes and is shaded all around. Sunrise over the islands of Chizumulu and Likoma is a photographer’s dream.
Four large bedrooms have twin beds, mosquito nets and en-suite bathrooms. The spacious lounge area is furnished in colonial style with many old maps, photographs and prints of real African interest. A wide shaded patio around the house offers the very best of outdoor tropical life.
The well-equipped kitchen encourages the widest range of self-catering. Three house servants are available to help including an ad hoc chef, available for your stay at a small extra daily cost. Barbecues allows al fresco dining on the beach or under the trees.
The local fish chambo, kampango, ncheni and the whitebait-like usipa can often be bought at dawn on the beach. There are many small shops and a traditional market in the village just three kilometres away.
The Beach House is easily reached. Lilongwe International airport is a 4-hour drive or a 30 minute flight away. Mzuzu, the capital of North Malawi, is an hour’s scenic drive away down the Rift Valley slopes and through beautiful rubber, tea and coffee estates.
