This self catering lake house was built in 1958 and still holds much of it's colonial grandeur. With beautiful gardens and a stunning stretch of beach it is easy to while away the time simply soaking up the views, swimming and snorkelling in the clear waters of Lake Malawi or catching up with friends and family. Self catered, Conforzi provides the perfect base to explore the area and the wonderful privacy of knowing it is only you and your friends!

PLUMBING – Conforzi lake house is a very old house – the plumbing has been redone, but there are still some problems regarding the time lag for the hot water to reach some areas of the house. Water for showers, geysers etc is pumped directly from the lake. 1 hot water geysers feeds the house and 1 the cottage they may take time for water to run through but there should be sufficient hot water for a full house, assuming escom is playing along.
KITCHEN & CATERING FACILITIES – There is a large kitchen with 2 fridges each with a section of freezer. It has a large electric stove and a large gas stove (when gas is available in Malawi) and 2 small but very efficient wood fired “mbaula” when nothing else works. There is also an outside braai which is ideal in cooking fresh lake fish. You can buy both the fish and the charcoal locally The cottage has a full selection of good quality crockery and cutlery as well as glasses and a good selection of kitchen equipment including pots, pan, kitchen utensils, casserole dishes and serving platters.
POWER – There will be times when ESCOM does not supply power. Unfortunately we do not have a backup generator so please enjoy a romantic candlelight atmosphere until the power returns.
