We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Nyanja Cottage over the Christmas holiday. Desmond was there to host us and was very helpful and very quick to resolve a minor issue we had with the stove, even though it was Christmas Eve. We had been to Cape Maclear before but stayed at one of the lodges nearby, but highly recommend staying here to have your own space right on the beach, and still be walking distance to all of the lodges/restaurants/bars.
