Quiet Corner guesthouse is in the heart of Coop neighborhood a noble bairro of the Colonial Lorenço Marques, among the white three floor villas that lie just behind the modern and taller H buildings (PH), next to the famous OMM square at the end of Vladimir Lenin Avenue.
Coop is between the richest Sommerchield and the cheerful Malhangalene, one of the central neighborhoods of the city.


Quiet Corner is enjoying a very well connected position to the rest of the city center
- Vladimir Lenin Ave goes straight to the Baixa on one side and
- Kenneth Kaunda Ave goes straight to Julius Nyerere Ave and Costa do sol or the Marginal Ave on the other side

The house is at the same time only five minutes’ drive from the harbor of the Catembe ferry and the Inhaca island boats and only five minutes’ drive from the Polana Serena hotel and the FAIMA Park (parque dos continuadores) with the art and craft Market in Mao Tse Tung Ave or the Joaquim Chissano Conference Center and the road that goes to the fish market.

Also Quiet Corner for its strategic position next to the OMM Square hub is probably the easiest guesthouse to reach in Maputo from the Maputo international airport as well as from the Ressano Garcia border with SA, the Lebombo border with Swaziland and the FACIM Mozambique International Trade Fair Complex in Marracuene.
