COLONIAL HOUSE IBO ISLAND: Casa Vieira (ex Banco Nacional Ultramarino)
Beautiful representativ colonial house which has been rehabilitated in summer 2019 and 2020 including a new roof, modern electricity, new bathroom and kitchen. The house is fully furnished with historical furniture, nice decoration with contemporary art paintings and is equipped with 6 beds. The big sized rooms give space for larger get togethers and the veranda to the backyard offers a beautiful garden view in the sunset. This extraordinary house impresses with its special architecture and a dreamlike location. If you are looking for something special, then you have come to the right place. Lots of space for the whole family or your organization in a historic representative house.
Casa Vieira has been owned in the same family since 1989 and was formerly the oficial branch of Banco Nacional Ultramarino (BNU) from 1920 until 1931. According to historic documents from 1885 the house was used as a hospital and formerly as a court house.
The house has a big garden with 2 equipped warehouses, of which one could be transformed in a bathroom including showers. A cisterne with a capacity of 100.000L is filled up in the rainy season through the water system of the roof. An automatic hydraulic pump measures the water level in a separate water tank of 1000L and fills this tank up regularly. The tank ensures high pressure water supply for the kitchen sink, bathroom sink including toilet and shower.
The kitchen is fully equipped including two fridges, cooking material and dishes. The sleeping rooms have 6 beds and five new mattresses.
Casa Vieira is located at the entrance of the stone town of Ibo Island next to the house of the Island Administrator and the most historic buildings on Ibo, the first tax authority building of mozambique and the Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Rosário (historic church). From the house you need 20 meters to walk to the beach, 50m to walk to Ibo Island Lodge and around 500 meters to walk to the center of Ibo with shops, bars and restaurants.
The rent agreement includes a cleaning lady and a night guard/gardener; a local house manager (EN/PT) will be your direct contact person on Ibo Island.
