Short overview of the business.

Being the owner of one of these holiday homes has a comforting assurance that during their absence or during its rental to tourists, the developer takes care of the homes as if they were her own. The cross border entry can be perceived as deterring and sometimes challenging but is surmountable and less cumbersome than envisaged and defiantly worth any inconvenience. The ownership of one of these holiday homes will provide you with the appreciation of the essence of the uniqueness of this tropical setting in this piece of paradise, an exclusivity of privacy surrounded by the enjoyment of luxury of location and quality family holidays.
How does the business operate on a daily base.
The developer has Mozambique citizenship and has secured a 99 year lease hold on the land on which the villas are built. Land ownership in Mozambique is not possible as all land belongs to the residing government; however the structural building improvements on the land belong to the purchasers of the holiday homes. The risk perceived is natural under these ownership laws. The positive consideration however on this investment would be to recoup ones initial outlay by holiday rentals as soon as possible lessening the initial risk whilst enjoying the benefits of the home during the periods when it is not rented out to tourists. If one takes into consideration the amount one pays for 1 weekâs holiday at any hotel or holiday resort with same or similar oceanic beauty then the comparable outlay for 99 year ownership of the holiday home becomes relevant and value is acceptably understood and appreciated. The prospective owner decides on which size home they desire, all villas are uniformly mirror image and have cosmetic similarities externally. The homeowner may internally choose designs to their own specifications and within the budget. Any add ones will be respectfully considered and will be at an additional cost to the homeowner. The furnishings are not included and are the ownerâs personal choice. The villas are designed to cater for families and groups (sleeping from 8 â 16 people), with open plan lounge dining, kitchen area and sliding doors opening this all up to a massive patio with a swimming pool and all overlooking the crisply blue ocean. The bedrooms are all very private and are set apart from the main living area and each has its own bathroom en suite and outdoor showers if requested.
