I loved my stay at Makini's - she made me feel so welcome and was a wonderful host. The apartment is beautifully spacious and the location is perfect and has the most beautiful views over the ocean. I'll miss my stay and hanging out with Makini :) It was a perfect airbnb. Thank you Makini

I had a great experience in Maputo. Makini's flat is in a great location, it is clean, with great natural light. The apartment itself has many nice amenities. Makini is a gracious and welcoming hostess, going out of her way to make you feel comfortable and welcome. I would highly recommend staying here.

The apartment is spacious and has beautiful views of the ocean. It is located in a safe part of the city with easy access to restaurants. The kitchen is also fully equipped. Makini is great about communicating and warmly welcomed us to Mozambique!

My stay with Makini was short, but lovely. The apartment is absolutely stunning, with amazing views of the city and ocean. The location is really great, close to good restaurants and safe to walk around in. Makini was a wonderful host and very accommodating. I had to make a last minute change to the booking because my work schedule changed, and she was very understanding and thoughtful in making sure I had everything I needed when I arrived. I'd definitely stay there again :)

Makini has an apartment that truly offers a lux experience with all the friendliness and comfort of home. Situated on the 18th floor of her building, windows line both the living room and the bedrooms, allowing for the most gorgeous views of the skyline and ocean. Every morning I was able to make a cup of coffee and enjoy the sunrise in the veranda hammocks. I have a wonderful album of pictures to take home now. As a host, Makini was so attentive. I knew the first morning that she was a great host; since I had just arrived, she knew I hadn't had a chance to buy food and had made me a plate of breakfast alongside hers so I could eat before going out to explore and get my supplies! Such a thoughtful expression and a wonderful welcome. Over breakfast she gave me a primer for the city and helped me learn to effectively navigate the city and keep myself safe while visiting. The apartment itself Is gorgeous, the room spacious with Windows, AC, and a small patio with places to hang laundry or wet towels. Makini provides excellent high speed internet that could stream music and movies easily. The kitchen was well supplied with fresh filtered water always cold and available. Around her building are the best restaurants and entertainment venues all within short walking distances. She even has a small shop in her lobby that has an incredible cash exchange rate (better than the airport)! The security guards were friendly and attentive, the apartment has several locking mechanisms to keep your things safe, and each room locks with a key. I also really enjoyed running the "Marginal" each morning. It's a beautiful oceanside road that you can run in the morning alongside expats and locals. The full circle can be up to 5k or more depending on how far you want to run. There is a cleaning lady who comes 3x a week and keeps the apartment sparkling. Overall, this was such a memorable experience for all good reasons! I can't wait to come back and book with Makini again! You won't regret it!
