  • Andrews place is exceptional. It's entirely off the grip, peaceful and beautifully set up—a perfect hideaway if you're looking for tranquillity.

  • We had a fantastic week at Andrew’s house just outside of Kisongo. Wow! What amazing views! We also loved puppy! Whilst in the area we did a waterfall walk and a cooking class which were recommended by Andrew’s parents. Thanks to Cristina for washing all our clothes after we climbed Kilimanjaro and for Petros and Zebedria for looking after us so well.

  • This is one of those AirBnb’s where the real thing is even better than the pictures. Spectaculair view, lovely staff and the most adorable dogs! A good place to totally relax. I would definitely recommend this place!

  • Amazing views

    Arseneau2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed just for one night after safari, we loved Andrew's place, wish to have stayed longer to enjoy the views and this cozy sustainable home Thanks

    Natalia2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • STOP LOOKING. This is the best apartment you will find in this area. The views are superb the hospitality is more than good and the housekeeper Petrol is super nice and helpfully. We enjoyed our time a lot and would love to come back one day.

    Noud2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely love this beautiful place. The view from the house is amazing and gets even better at night with amazing night views. This is one of the perfect peaceful places if you want to get away from the craziness of the town life or after a long safari in Arusha. The house relaxing, comfortable and clean. Enjoyed our stay!

    Allen2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • This place was everything we hoped for. After our little safari adventure we found a beautiful, serene oasis. It is a little of the grid and can be hard to find but absolutely worth it! A beautiful, sustainably designed house with an amazing view and the two most adorable dogs. Andrew was helpful with our questions and recommended to take a little hike with the dogs guided by his groundskeeper Petro, which we really enjoyed. He also made us a little bonfire on our last night, which was so nice! We also got to meet his lovely parents and his mum gave us some great recommendations for our trip to Arusha. Everything is well organized - there is a driver that you can book if you want to go to town or take a trip somewhere. I would love to come back just to hide away in this amazing place for a week of yoga and reading books and cuddling the puppies :)

    A unique beach Lodge where we ask our guests to become family. Choose between 6 separate Listings for our 6 different rooms. Whichever room, we want you to feel you are at home within a hotel. This Listing is for the Utupoa, Kijiji bedroom.
    Lying opposite Mnemba atoll on the dazzling Matemwe beach, 'Utupoa' is Swahili and means people are 'fresh' or 'humanity is cool.' Karibu to our unique house with its huge roof, hidden somewhere between the East African tall palms and utopia. Matemwe represents one of the quieter parts of the island with the most beautiful white stretch of working beach. The fishermen head out daily on their ngalawas and bring the fish into auction and ladies farm seaweed in the low tide. We have 3 ensuite bedrooms available in Nyumba Safi. 'Ngalawa', a tribute to Swahili sailing culture; 'Sultani', echoes of Stone Town; and 'Kijijji' after our own local village. We can accommodate singles, couples, or groups of 6-8. If you are traveling with more people, let us know and we'd be happy to try sort something out. The house comes with its own very well equipped kitchen and a third floor lounge area with TV featuring the famous DSTV channels and a computer with WiFi. In our main house Nyumba Kubwa we have two rooms available, recently remodelled and each with its own veranda leading onto the beach. We charge a bit more for these rather special rooms and we invite our guests to make themselves at home and enjoy the use of the whole house. For meals we are very flexible, inviting you to eat with us or to cook for yourselves or just advising you on the best nearby restaurants. We can certainly organise traditional dinners of fresh seafood brought straight to our front door and cooked by our fabulous Swahili cook Tano. We are set up as a place to stretch out, shut down, sail our ngalawa, watch the sea (or DSTV), and leave recharged - as strongly as our solar back-up system! Please always send us a message to inquire about availabilty as we have more than 1 room. Karibu kwetu!
  • It is a place in paradise here in Zanzibar. I am very grateful for everything. Tim & Joyce are highly recommended as hosts. They give everything to guarantee a great stay.

  • This place is just amazing! Joyce and her staff, especially Aziza are outstanding... Aziza cooks like heaven on earth. Caution!!! If you stay here, you never want to leave... super highly recommended!!!

    Lukas2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time. Joyce did everything to make us feel comfortable. Don't miss the dinner, we had the best food of our all trip. Thanks Joyce

    Nicolas2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed with Joyce and Tim for 4 days (and could easily have stayed longer). The house and the surrounding area were just extraordinary! After a five-week trip through Africa, this place was just perfect for relaxing. Joyce and Tim as well as the staff are super friendly and their sweet dogs remain in our memories. The beach is beautiful (even at low tide) and there are hardly any tourists, which we really liked. The food, local and always freshly prepared, was also a highlight. We can definitely recommend this airbnb. Many thanks to everyone, we found our stay perfect!

    Sara2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Surprising, original and beautiful place

    Elie2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great place on a beautiful, calm beach with tides. Good food and excellent hospitality.

    Emelie2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing experience we had at the Utupoa. Spectacular beach, quality accommodations, wonderful food and a truly unique familial vibe. My husband and I are generally independent travelers who don’t seek out a b&b experience, but Utupoa was highly recommended by friends so we made the journey and loved every minute. We got to meet both hosts, Joyce (my hero) and Tim (my other hero), who are an extremely kind and interesting couple who make you feel like family. Their daughters were visiting at the time as well - both very cool and kind and welcoming. We treasured the experience getting to know their whole family along with a dozen other guests from around the globe. Highly recommend you book a visit and we hope to visit again. Thanks Joyce & Tim!

    Ali2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • You won't find a more relaxing, beautiful spot! Tim and Joyce were perfect hosts. They were there whenever you needed them, happy to answer questions and good company over dinner along with other guests.

And to top if off , Jane is just an amazing host and person. The free breakfast is great. I will definitely recommend this place to all my friends and family. My girlfriend and I and two of my sisters stays for about a week and we had no complaints , just beautiful memories.

    Alexander2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • The stay here was exceptional. In fact, it was so exceptional that I canceled the second reservation at another place ao that I could stay longer. I made friends with John and Jane. This has been the best AirBnB that I've ever stayed in.

    Michael2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Jane has the most beautiful home and an amazing environment, she was one awesome host. I'll definitely be going back there for another visit.

    Sophia2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Jane and John are not only good hosts, but also fascinating people with interesting insights into Tanzania! We loved staying with them and appreciated all of their help and advice on our stay.

    Meg2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Palm House! Jane is such a lovely and welcoming host - she alone is worth the stay here and her breakfast is better than you could get it at any 5-Star hotel. The house and property are absolutely stunning, it’s a little piece of heaven on earth. I can highly recommend!

    Denise2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • The stay in Arusha was delightful. Jane is great host. She took care of us from the beginning and answered all our needs. I have a large family (Myself, my wife, my brother and 4 boys aged 4 to 8). The place is stunning. The garden was showcase level with flowers and plants from all over the world. We purchased the food option and it was the right choice.

    Ghassan2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • You can expect a very warm welcome, flexibility and a personal touch in the service received from Jane. She is a great cook and insistent on keeping you fed. You will also enjoy the lush grounds, palm trees and clean open space. This is a quiet, respectful home setting suitable for individual, couples and family stays alike.

    Ivor F.2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Jane is just the best hostess. She stayed up with us even through a late check in, helped our driver find the place, offered us a beer and chatted with us, and we awoke to an incredible breakfast of pancake, eggs, toast, butter, juice fresh fruit, yogurt, coffee and tea. We were so full! She also gave us a lovely tour. Thank you Jane, we will be back with our children next time!!!

    Arusha, Arusha, Tanzania

    My place is close to great views, the beach, restaurants and dining, nightlife, and family-friendly activities. You’ll love my place because of the neighborhood, the light, the comfy bed, the kitchen, and the coziness. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), and big groups.
    The bedrooms are big and spacious. The house is decorated in African, arabic and swahili style. Very spacious high ceilings, big stairway, large windows and big rooms. very rare to find such spacious accomodation in Dar es salaam for this pricing.
    The neighborhood is in Mikocheni, which is very close to Oysterbay. There are many restaurants such as KFC, a Swahili restaurant called Tripple seven (777), Billionaires club and shopping malls in the vicinity consisting of Shoppers Plaza, Kids Plaza, Dar Free Market and Mlimani City Mall and Conference center ( which is about 20 minutes drive from the Villa). The neighborhood is quiet and calm in the prominent area of Mikocheni in Dar es Salaam. Its a perfect place to wind down from the busy city noise or safari or from work related activities. The surrounding houses are the late ex and first President of Tanzania Honorable Julius Nyerere, the Malawian embassy, and the ex President J.K. Kikwete's residence as well as prominent businessmen such as Bakhresa. A prominent family neighborhood.

If you are staying in Dar and need good access to the Peninsula or Mbezi Beach or is a really good spot, right off Old Bagomoyo Road. Quite neighborhood and safe. Hosts are attentive and very responsive to email. Nice place at a good price point.

    Josh2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • I’ve stayed at this villa for the second time and definitely continues to be my favorite place in Dar to stay whenever it’s available. Magdalena Adding a car to the villa as an extra option with staff who have knowledge of the city was definitely a plus! Not to mention the extra decor in the villa! Definitely a Great value for your money!

    John2019-11-24T00:00:00Z

    Benan2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Very cozy place to stay near Moshi! Affordable and has everything you need!! They are very helpful with coordinating travel.

    Duncan2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • I spent 5 lovely nights in room Kili-1 in the main building. I think it is the best room; I liked the many windows and good light. The common areas downstairs provided good space when my local friends came to visit. My Swahili tutor and I used the table on the verandah for our lessons. Staff helped me with my Swahili as well! I particularly liked that the staff allowed a friend who works the night shift join me for breakfast at no extra charge. Staff were knowledgeable and helpful about the Dar LUX bus.

    Sarah2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely organisation. The vegetarian menu was AMAZING, we enjoyed it both night and highly recommend eating at their restaurant! We were lucky enough to see the graduation and loved being a small part of an amazing cause.

    Priya2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Best place in Moshi

    Scott2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • More Than a Drop is a well known and respected bed and breakfast. Communication from day 1 was smooth and Gianluigi assisted with several trips to the airport. The place is surrounded by a beautiful garden with a lounge area and hammocks. Breakfast is simple but appreciated. Dinner was all vegetarian and was super delicious (my partner and I are meat eaters and LOVED the food). Staff was very nice. Overall, a very pleasant stay.

    Fantastic Spacious Seafront Villa surrounded by nature with private pool and relax veranda. Offering free breakfast every morning.Only 10 minutes from Stone town and an hour Kendwa beach. Strategically located on the beach but kindly NOTE the beach is NOT ideal for swimming . the beach is more likely fishing area . Ideal location to discover Zanzibar in total relax. Rough road to the villa from main tarmac road.Kindly NOTE we do not serve Alcohol but it is allowed to bring your own Alcohol
    A blossom garden with pool, area relax and restaurant offering free breakfast for your relaxing day. Inside the property a private sand solarium and the direct access to the beach, 1 minutes by walk. but kindly note the beach is not ideally for swimming but somehow fishing area and fishermens boat

  • Zanzibar Grand Palace is a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle, and was a lovely place for myself and 7 friends to spend my 34th birthday long weekend. As soon as you are within the gated walls of this villa, the pool, the outdoor veranda and patio, and the whole vibe is incredibly serene. The staff are incredibly attentive, yet minimize themselves to allow you to enjoy yourself in private. The breakfast is wonderful each morning, and Salma is a wonderful cook. She also did such a great seafood bbq platter so well the first night, we ended up ordering it 2x during our 4 day stay. The property was a little older than the pictures indicated, but the AC was cool, the fans were wonderful, and it was all clean. The activities were relatively affordable and the villa's drivers were always on time. In terms of some constructive feedback: The showers could have better water pressure, FYI - the smell of drying fish does waft over 2 out of the 4 afternoons, the location is a bit difficult to find... and their airport pick up at $40 is double the price of getting a taxi to drop you off for $20. But all in all, we had a fabulous time, everything was clean everyday, the activities were easy to organize, and the villa gave us a wonderful private place to come home to in the evening to party by the pool in our own group. Thank you for such a wonderful time!

    Erika M.2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • The rooms are very clean and the villa is very nice. The hospitality was on the point and the Chef prepared super delicious breakfasts. The location is close to the airport and Stone Town. The excursions were very well organized and the guides were even better (thank you Simba). A warm recommendation if you want to enjoy in a peaceful, green oasis with a private pool and sea view. Thank you all for kind hospitality. Asante sana. :)

    Sandra2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful setting, great pool, staff available and discreet, respecting privacy.

    Mehdi2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • That's a great place with wonderful service. The villa itself is amazing and you will have a very good stay over there. I would strongly recommend to rent a car if you want to travel to the island beaches and see the island. If you spend your time on villa and the tours, that might be not necessary. Juma is very nice, helpfull and kind host. It was pleasure to stay in his villa.

    Alexey2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Voila we stayed my family and me at zanzibar grand palace, we were very very welcome, we stayed 1 month in zanzibar and we changed destination ending up with zanzibar grand palace, it was our best stay the staff is remarkable cleanliness also everyone is listening and at our disposal, we eat very very well.

    Yassine2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • This place was perfect honestly. Every room is a master suite. The food cooked by Chef Selma was amazing even the vegetarian options. The whole staff was amazing Katherine and the Waiter who'e name I cant spell so I wont even try. Mr. Uma and even the security guards where pleasant. The pool was amazing and so was the restaurant area however we didn't eat out side because its very much Africa and the insects would come from all directions. Our group and and I had an amazing time and would highly recommend.

    Rukiya2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great service, staff were incredibly helpful and friendly; felt safe staying as a group of ladies; close to Stone Town; beach is not a swimming beach (fisherman's beach), but pool area is great; their traditional dinner experience is a must do. All in all great stay, I'll be back.

    Ranelle2020-01-02T00:00:00Z

  • Lovely rustic place a little away from the more touristy spots. However, extremely close to a white sand beach and close enough when you’re looking for home comforts, restaurants and to pay for a day’s pool pass at one of the resorts. Yussuph is a really kind and helpful guy and helped me find beers and kept them ice cold for when I wanted them. Thanks!

    Henry2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Swahili House is little gem inbetween all the posh hotels in Michamvi. It's nicely tucked away only few minutes to the beach. You will find lots of places to hang around and relax. We found the accommodation even more comfy than on the pictures. At first, we weren't sure about having an all cold shower, but considering the temperature it was a blessing and actually not that cold at all. If you're hesitating, because you want a pool or anything, sleep here, and get a cheap visitor's card for the hotel on the beach. You will save money and support the heart and soul of Michamvi.

    Regine2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Yussuph's place was divine. The compound is peaceful, secure and has a lovely community house where meals are served. The beach is literally 2 minutes away. Just know that the tides fluctuate from dry beds to water up past the sand. You have to check the tides to swim. But even lowest tide is beautiful and watching the women farming seaweed is wonderful. The Swahili house is made of authentic materials and decorated with lovely shells. The one room house has a comfortable foam bed with net, desk and shelves. The floors are wall to wall covered with mats. I had great water pressure and the no problems with the toilet. There are several restaurants nearby --several beachfront--that are delicious and atmospheric. Try all the juices offered and the shakes! Yussuph is a wonderful cook and every breakfast is delicious with fresh fruits, chapatti & omelet and fabulous fresh squeezed juice. There is a quiet, peaceful mellow vibe here that was ideal for my R&R I needed from my work on the mainland. Thank you Yussuph!

    Jim & Gina2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Traditional Swahili design, few minutes walk from the beach with a variety of good restaurants and bars near by. Yussuph was very helpful and easy to keep in touch with.

    Romek2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Very good stay with Yussuph and Kathrin! We highly recommend! We had a very pleasant stay in this charming little house. The location is perfect, just a few steps from the beach, close to lots of small restaurants and also close to big hotels where we can have the pool for the purchase of a drink only. The place is very modest and very pleasant because peaceful (only 3 rooms in the property). The welcome and warm. You feel comfortable there very quickly. The space is well secured Some points to note, which have nothing to detract from our pleasure to stay here: there is no hot water and the toilets are adjoining the room, without door (namely for privacy). Power cuts are also frequent (on the island) which does not always allow you to benefit from the fan (no air conditioning). The positive: peaceful and cozy place, close to everything (activities, restaurants etc). Possibility of taking the local bus to get around, excursion offer close by, accessible swimming pools nearby.

  • We stayed at the place for 2 nights and really enjoyed our time there. Yussuph and Kathrin were very welcoming and attentive to our needs. They are also very friendly and we had many interesting conversations. The house is nicely decorated and we enjoyed sitting out on the mini veranda. The garden has a few chillout spots and there's also a common lounge. The breakfast was nice although was on the light side. Also there's no wi-fi so make sure you get good directions, or save the location on your offline google maps to find the place. The house is a one minute walk to the beach and there are lots places to eat close by (the restaurant behind the airbnb sells local food at a cheap price and is very good). There are also a few swimming pools at some nearby resorts you can use if you buy drinks and food. Michamvi beach is nice to swim at high tide and it's a good area to relax in. All in all highly recommended!

  • Best value for money on the Island. Love the location, just a short little path to the beach. Delicious breakfast. Michamvi Kae was our favourite place in Zanzibar...laid-back and idyllic.

  • Andrew and klara’s place is beautiful! We really loved our stay :) their property is a paradise ! It’s only a short walk to the beach where there are tons of restaurants and bars. The AC was so important because the weather was close to 45 degrees Celsius when we were in Zanzibar. There is a small fee do use the AC per day. The pool was amazing! Would totally go back anytime. The location was a bit hard to find but we figure out after the fact to just follow the seaweed co signs to their business which is close to the house if you get lost.

  • What A Place! Highly recommend it and just 4 mins from Paje beach. The hosts were so lovely and helpful in every way. Do not hesitate to book this property!

    Masroor2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Such a fun and welcoming spot for our family of 4. We loved the pool and relaxing on the porch- the hosts and their kids were a delight and if we ever go back to Paje we will for sure stay here at our second home.

    Sarah2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved this beautiful cottage and would definitely recommend! Thank you A&K

    Alina2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • This was amazing stay! Klara and Andrews were great hosts, Klara did greet us in the night after the flight. The garden is outstanding! House is perfect for family of four with beautiful patio where have your meals. There are a/c installed now, which is so great. Proper moscito nets are in place. Sheets are sparkling clean. Pool is great place to cool down, it is always clean. Beach is nearby - 4min walk. There are two large dogs on property - just a heads up for those with allergies or fears. They are very friendly, visited us rarely and didn’t bother us at all, we love animals. This is definately a place to stay in Paje, if you prefer peaceful place. We highly recommend it!

    You’ll love my place, because Alice’s offers undisturbed tranquillity. Vacation your way. The freedom to wake up & decide what your next adventure or activity will be and when you want to do it. My place is good for couples & solo adventurers. A single Ecodome (bedroom & en-suite bathroom) on 1500qm of land, means that guests have the plot all to themselves and immediately get a feel of detachedment from the hustle & bustle of normal life and escape into an adventurous world of natural living.
    Alice`s is directly behind my place B4 Beachclub with a beautiful swimming pool and of course the stunning Indian Ocean and Paje beach. B4 Beachclub hosts B4 - a bar which serves delicious burgers, salads and offers my guests breakfast on request. As Zanzibar is the worlds top 3 kite surf destination you are directly connected to Airborne Kitecentre. Get your holiday souvenirs at Island Life Shop. We also have a public laundry, Spa and Shisha lounge at B4 Beachclub. Enjoying the natural living at the dome, but don`t miss out on daily life activities - the perfect combination.
    We are 5 minutes away from Paje beach. And 10 minutes from supermarkets and small shops.
  • Cool place with cool vibes.

    Diandra2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Magical and beautiful, and worth the price. This place was truly special and am glad I found it on Airbnb. This beautiful hideout is next to B4 Beach Club so we didn’t miss out on all the fun when we left our wonderland. I cannot wait to come back and would highly recommend Alice’s Eco Dome.

    Suvena2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great breakfast in the bar right on the beach! Quiet fairytale house

    Franzi2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • A very authentic place to stay in, a true feeling you’re in Africa. Comfortable, beautiful, and an easy access to the beach (2 min or less). We loved it !!

    Zied2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Tina was a very helpful host, replying to messages immediately! The ecodome was truly a unique stay, spotlessly clean, and check-in easily done at the adjacent beachbar. Although there was no wifi in the dome, there was wifi available at the beachbar which was less than 5 minutes away. Wonderful stay, right on the beautiful Paje beach!

    Luisa2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

    KoMe beach house located at Jambiani, one of the most beautiful beaches on the island, with miles of deep white sand. At KoMe you will never feel lonely as are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby; such as Coral Rock 2 minutes walk, Kimte and Art Hotel around the corners, Red monkey about 4 minutes walk, these are places where you can socialize with other westerners. Kome is suitable for families and couples who want to spend holiday in quiet and relaxing environment.
    Kome Beach house has 2 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and large living room, kitchen with all the comforts, direct on a fabulous white sandy beach. Our guests are free to use all space of the house and more information will be given during your arrival. Jambiani is famous for its tides and colors that the sea plays in different hours of the day,a quiet and relaxing environment that make it unique and unforgettable holiday . Kome is the best place for Kite- surfers but also training can be offered at Red Monkeys (4 minutes walk) where they have their own kite-surfing school.
    The management team not only can assist when needed: shopping, food or to drive you around to different excursions (spice tour, blue safari, Stone Town, Jozani forest, dolphins, sailing) but also can arrange any kind of catering (including cook, table service, breakfast).
  • Iddi’s AIrbnb was outstanding. We had an authentic experience of Jambiani, where do I start? Iddi arranged for us to be picked up at ur hotel in Stone Town for the journey to our Airbnb. We stopped at a spice tour on the way; one of the highlights of our trip. We arrived at the AIrbnb and it was absolutely perfect for us. My husband and I had one room with an en-suite bathroom and our daughter had a room to herself that also had an en-suite shower room. It was ideal. The cottage has a deck/patio area that has views over the beach and the Indian Ocean. IT was absolutely incredible! Iddi and his staff arranged for us to go snorkelling one day, it was an unforgettable experience. Then Josh (also arranged through Iddi’s team) cooked lunch for us one day. We ate meals at a place literally a few steps from the cottage. Jambiani was really authentic and our daughter made friends with the local school children who would visit her every day and say “Anna, Anna!” She and we will never ever forget our magical stay.

    Maureen2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • I was for the third time in Kombe Beach House and it is for me the best place to be on Zanzibar. The house is very nice located at the beach, on the terrace you feel like being in paradise. You find everything thing you need in the lively house - even more ! Hairdryer, smoothie-machine!!! You can really feel like home. Iddi and Hassan 1 and Hassan 2 are really hosts, passing by everyday for asking if everything is alright and Hassan 2 climbed even on the palm tree to catch a coconut that Hassan 1 prepared for us. It’s really like a five star place. Thank you so much that I could be your guest. Hopefully see you soon again - tutaonana na asanta sana sana!

    Christine2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at Iddi's house. We were very well taken care of and had an excellent holiday. Would love to come back anytime.

    Marcello2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very peaceful and safe location. It is amazing to be so close to the sea. Very well equipped kitchen. A great stay !

    siesta2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • You can't get a better view in Jambiani for this price, right on the beach, great value for money and great for larger groups and families, we wished we could have stayed longer. Nice bars and restaurants in walking distance. Jambiani is very limited on shops selling basic amenities so if you plan to do your own cooking be sure to contact Iddi beforehand, otherwise Paje is next town where you can find a small supermarket similar to 7/11. Overall great experience.

    Nikolina2019-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • The KoMe Beach house has a breathtaking view! It's located right in front of the beautiful beach of Jambiani. The house is spacious and has everything you need! When you are looking for an exotic getaway, living close to the locals and far from mass tourism this is the right place for you!

    Tobias2019-12-03T00:00:00Z

Hence every bungalow is well spaced out from each other offers private access to every bungalow with attached Bath. Guests enjoy direct access to the beach and sunbeds with umbrella to relax. We now have a cozy beach bar to socialize or just to sip one of our tasty cocktails or bottled beverage and watch the sun go down. We do have a kitchen exclusively meant for guests of Savera. We dish out daily changing small menu with lot of fresh seafood in the offering. Breakfast is included in the room rate and WIFI is provided free to our guests. Enjoy sun, sea and barefoot holidays in the white sandy beaches of Zanzibar.
  • Usually i don't write reviews, but this time i have to write it😁. Savera Beach Houses is the best place to stay in Zanzibar. The location and the beach is perfect. The bungalows are spacious and very clean, the staff is amazing, the food also. But the best of everything is the host Savio! He made our vacation perfect. He takes care of everything and he responds to everybody. This attention you cannot receive nowhere else, I am sure. So, thank you for everything Savio and see you next year again😁... Asante!

    Iliyan2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Savera is a slice of heaven! Savio is so down to earth and he and his wife have created a beautiful space in a gorgeous part of the island. The room and bathroom were larger than what I was expecting from the photographs. The beach was cozy and intimate and during low tide stretched for miles. Bring swimming shoes as there are sea urchins about! But the service was spectacular form his team. He went above and beyond as a host ensuring we were comfortable and well cared for. I can’t wait to visit again.

    Brittaney2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • I traveled to Zanzibar as a solo woman and selected Savio's place based on the positive reviews. I echo what other guests have said -- the beach location is spectacular, the cottage was private, spacious, and basically in the sand, and Savio and Vera are excellent hosts. I stayed for three nights and arranged van transfers through Savio. I consider the stay at their place one of the highlights of my long trip abroad and I highly recommend this special accommodation.

    Jill2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • We came to Zanzibar for 5 days to end our honeymoon from Safari in Tanzania. We haven't even left yet, and I'm writing this review because we had such an incredible time. Really, the photos speak volumes, but Savio and his wife Vera live on site with their adorable baby boy and are so kind, accommodating and gracious. They set up anything you can imagine to do. We wanted to go snorkeling and bike riding along the beach. I also got my hair braided one day and a massage from a very nice local lady. They also arranged transportation to and from the airport. The little beach houses are ridiculously adorable and really swanky for a spot on the beach in Africa. Hot water is amazing, pressure strong and beds firm and inviting. Breakfast is served every morning and the menu changes for the day based on what chef has available and what fresh fish the local fisherman have available. The restaurant is only for savera guests which is lovely because if the other tourists knew how good the food is, it wouldn't be so quiet here. The locals use the beach to fish, kids are playing and laughing all day, there are some beach boys asking for you to buy stuff but savera has security all night and they don't come up to the property. The water....it's like a child's bath. I kid you not. A warm bath. It's a little insane how warm it is. This place is damned perfect. The cocktails are so good... And the selection is huge! The food is seriously delicious....long pause, hard stop. The food is OMG. I spent the last 3 months dropping ten pounds for my dress and now I'm on a solid mission to gain my good friends back and savera is not dissapointing. 😆 Everyone should come. Honestly, it's booked out for the next year basically, but if you can find a few days to get away from real life....it's worth the 18 hour flight from the US. Or wherever you're coming from. We will be back, I only hope the future fame savera has coming doesn't change it too much. Paradise. ♥️♥️🌴 🙌 👍

    Sanidia2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • What true hospitality should be. Thank you to Savio and the wonderful staff for taking care of me I was suffering a bout of too much fun in the sun, they went above and beyond to make sure I was well hydrated with fresh coconut water. Also arranging pick ups and drop offs were amazing and efficient especially when it can get overwhelming and confusing in Zanzibar. Of note, this beach is more laid back and chill than Paje. I would recommend for a taste of local living versus a lot of swimming in the beach (there is more seaweed).

    Winnie2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • We are a couple who enjoy adventure and we found many great places nearby. Lovely rooms and nice staff :)

    Johanne2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Everything at Savera was excellent! Savio was really welcoming. The location was jaw-dropping. The food at the restaurant was always delicious and varied every day. I strongly recommend this place!

    Carmen2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • It is a brand new facility with all the thoughtful details! From the fly nets and the daily care for the mosquitoes, the breakfast, which was brought directly to the terrace (it just needed to spit out the door and the girls were already there and brought coffee), to the contacts to the taxi drivers that brought us everywhere. There is absolutely nothing that should be changed! The few cabins Savio has are perfect for couples seeking peace and no mass tourism! We can only thank you and would come back anytime !!!

    Jambiani, Tanzania

    White beach sand, turquoise sea views. Fisherman's Cottage is in the hub of the village beach vibe. Being right on Mfumwe beach, means you can have your coffee, early morning swim and watch the breath taking sunrise. Feel free to join in the afternoon soccer game. Kite to your hearts desire. Or just watch with a cold glass of wine. The kitchenette is equipped for easy meals but there are restaurants close by. This is authentic Zanzibar. Not for the Resort holiday maker. Join in the fun.
    The cottage is directly on one of then most beautiful unspoiled beaches in Zanzibar. Watch the fishermen go off to work in the morning and the women tend the seaweed farms during the day. Kite surfers setting up, or for the more adventurous, learn to kite surf on your doorstep. It can be a busy, noisy beach at times with sporting activities. For those who love to experiencing the real essence of a country. This is for you. True island style.
    Zanzibar has a wealth of activities to satisfy a wide variety of tastes. From those in search of sunset cruises and pampering to the avid adventurer there is something for everyone.
  • We loved our stay in the beautiful fisherman’s cottage. The cottage is located in such a stunning location, right on the beach in a little village in Jambiani. Monica was a great host, and the property managers in Jambiani made us a delicious breakfast. Worth nothing that the bedroom can get quite warm at night, and could do with an extra fan. We hope we can come back one day- what a magical spot! Imy and Oscar

    Imy2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful accommodation with everything you could need. Mosquito nets in front of the windows and over the bed, well-equipped kitchen, super clean, proper immersion in Africa. Monica, Said and Farida are very friendly and helpful. We recommend!

    Merle2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Monica’s place is the best ever! The house is right on the beach, which is lively during the day when the kids come to play football and super quite during the night. You can only hear the waves crashing on the shore! Farida and Said were very helpful during our stay. Farida cooks and can deliver food: we only tried her chapatti, which is delicious! Jambiani is a great location to experience another aspect of Zanzibar (huge tides, kitesurfing, seaweed harvesting) and Monica’s place is the perfect base from where to start exploring! Highly recommended.

    Chiara2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderfully well appointed and decorated cottage right on the beach. Sitting on the verandah watching the local kids football match each afternoon is wonderful. There’s a great supply shop a short walk away and Said the local manager can organise anything you need but is never pushy. Magnificent spot.

    Jennifer2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • This is pure paradise & authentic Zanzibar! We had the luck to stay for 5 days and loved every moment of it from the breathtaking landscapes (white sand beach, stunning sunrises, turquoise cyan waters, amazing tides, a lightening/ thunderstorm too!) to the warmth of the local people. Everyone greets you with a “Jambo” and checks if you are good. Monica has outstanding hospitality with her team of cottage managers Saidi and Farida and the little Hai who will make you feel at home from the start - make sure you try Farida’s food! It is the best around. The cottage has everything you need and you can watch the sunrise from bed and the daily football games from the porch - a vip spot in the shade. Watch kids play and laugh with joy all day, women farm seeweed, men get coconuts from the tree and fisherman with their wooden boats and dhows in the distance. Jambiani village is charming and you can walk any time and feel safe and at home, whether on the beach or in the streets. Saidi will help you organize any tour you want - Blue Safari, sailing on a handmade wooden trimaran with captain Hassan, spice tour, Stone town tour - we tried it all and loved it all. We especially loved spending time with the locals and the children teaching them some english and math. We hope to come back as our hearts stayed in Jambiani! Many thanks Monica & team!

    Zhanina2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage with beautiful views of the ocean. Well equipped and spacious. Plenty of great restaurants and bars nearby. A great place to spend a beach holiday.

    Derek2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Monica's place was great! It is small and quaint and the front door is directly onto the beach. Its normally a quiet place to stay, however be sure to check and see if there are any events on the beach before you stay as it might be a bit louder. We happened to stay during the annual Jambiani Beach sports festival, which was a very friendly community event and definitely worth checking out if you are staying when the festival is on. The host and local host's were very responsive and helpful throughout our stay.

    Ian2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house right on an amazing beach. The little village and the local people gives you an autentic feeling of the island, different from many otterrai touristic spots Would defenetly come back here

    Despina2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Really great place, especially if you want to get away from busy Stonetown. Really cute decorations and everything was super clean! Check in went smoothly and they also helped us to organize trips and taxis. Wonderful hosts and hospitality, they made us dinner one night which was very good! Highly recommend!

    Carina2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • The house is exactly what you see in the photo, no surprises. A wonderful bed, nice shower and a fan for the warmth. Idriss is very helpful, he is always ready to answer your questions or help you arrange a taxi. The location was perfect for us, quiet neighborhood and not too far from Stonetown.

  • Dominiques place is the absolute cutest! My friend and I felt right at home and loved every moment of our stay. Iddy was great at helping us get around and giving up tips for things to do. Anyone would be lucky to stay here during their visit to Zanzibar.

    Eboni2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Staying in Mbweni was really an amazing experience. Dominque was great at communicating, Idriss was a great help as well. He helped us get transportation when needed, directions to nearby beaches, and he even cooked an amazing dish for us that was lowkey better than what we were buy at the restaurants & for a fraction of the price. We had to return the favor and prepare a dish for him as well. He was always on call to help us out and we met some amazing people through his recommendation, we greatly appreciated everything he did for us and I will definitely recommend this area for any future Zanzibar visitors, it’s a quiet location, with a lot of nice people and it’s not too far from Stone Town.

    KoMe Beach Garden located at Jambiani, one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Kome beach garden is two studio cottage each complete house and can be used as a family house by unlocking the middle door that separate the the two studio. One studio cottage has a bed side room which is perfect for three or a family with one or two children. As a family house can accommodate five people easy. Remember if you book for two you will only have one part of the cottage. 39 second to the beach.
    Remember if you book for two people you will have only one part of the cottage and if you don’t want to share bed please let us know before your booking. You will never feel alone at Kome house, there are many restaurant and entertainment near by like the Coral Rock Hotel – Jambiani, next door, is very expensive place to dine but you cannot ignore the atmosphere and the view of the restaurant. Is in your right facing the sea. Red Monkey Lodge – Jambiani next to Coral Rock about 4 minutes away from the house Local Swahili Style Chez Hassan – Jambaiani, recommended (is in the opposite side of Coral rock and is about 10 minutes’ walk)
    Kome beach house is integrated to the village where we belong, if you are looking for beach reserved for you and animation screen this is definitely not for you.
  • The place is really nice, clean a well equiped. Mr Iddi and his team are coming everyday to see if everything is ok. They help you with everything and you are welcome with a fresh coconut ! I really recommand this place. Close to the beach and some nice restaurants. It has everything inside if you want to cook.

    Rudy2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Verry good, I recommend !

    Pol2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Clean, cozy spacious and comfortable apartment. Nice amenities like Wi-Fi, AC nice cooking set and parking inside the premises, great staff super kind. Recommended!

    Giuliano2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Iddi's place was a nice, clean and quiet getaway; just a few hundred yards from the beach. Jambiani was definitely quiet (we were their at low season). If you don't Kite surf, there isn't a ton to do. Take cash ... no ATM's around! And for 4 or more people, I'd recommend getting the whole house. Happy Travels! Paul

    Paul2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • booked the entire accommodation. But the house was surrendered to someone else. everything else matches the description

    Danil2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • The stay was very good. The house is immaculate. Cleanliness is very good. ACs work very well. The only thing to improve is the kitchen utensils for those who want to have meals at home. Without a doubt a very recommendable house.

    Gonçalo2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • We found the accommodation pleasant and the assistance of Iddi and his staff impeccable.

    Giulia2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 5 nights here and the place is extremely nice! Proper AC, kitchen, bathroom, everything. Staff took a really good care of us. Definetly worth it! Beach is just 20 seconds away from the house :)

    I'm living in beautiful beachhouse and I have two rooms to accommodate guests. One room has a view on the sea, the others on the garden. I also run a relaxing bar and restaurant with genuinely trained cooks. Breakfast is included in the price!
    My house is settled directly to the Indian Ocean. In the guestrooms are fans on the sailing and the plugs are from Germany. The bathrooms are built in European standard. The beds are protected with mosquito nets. The electricity comes from my solar panels.
    In the peaceful fisherman village, my house is settled directly to the beach. The white sand on the beach invites you for long walking. The lovely turquoise-blue sea attracts you for swimming and the temperature of the sea is very comfortable. There are no sharks inside the reef! Here you can really relax and you will not be disturbed from noise (Discos).
  • Very nice accommodation at the foot of the beach and set back from all the hustle and bustle. Place with a soul, suitable for rest and meetings. Too bad the designer of the place is no longer present to make us feel all the salt. But she still lives there and the Masais speak of it with respect and love. I will come back with pleasure.

    David2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Step in is directly located on the beach. The beach is calm and seems almost forgotten. Wonderful to calm down and relax! The host was very friendly and took nice care of us! The rooms are a little bit old, but for the price just perfect! The breakfast was lush and delicious. We’re glad we stayed there!

    Lina Judit2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The house of happiness in paradise! A magnificent stay with the smiles of Ramazan, Haji, Arona and the others, all fine blue strings, ready to concoct all the dishes we want, at a reasonable price. A big thank you in particular to Haji, for the discussions, the excursions he offered me, he is fantastic !!! Plus a fantastic view of the beach! Do not change anything in your way of doing things, I loved this spirit of mutual aid with the village! A huge favorite!

    Virginie2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Safi sana! Nice team, friendly and helpful people and a beach that is not crowded like other places like in Nungwi or Kendwa. The rooms are wonderful, very clean and my window had a sea view like in paradise. A dream for everybody who wants to enjoy the sunny side of Zanzibar!

    Rosi2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Best stay in the Zanzibar and the most nicest people who are working there:)

    Iva2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • It's too short that we've got only one day at Ramazan's house. The guest house is a gem at Jambiani with a lush garden and private beach. The room is full of space and clean. The blue and white landscape is just out of window. We spent a whole day at the beautiful patio with napping cats and kissing breeze. Ramazan's great team could do everything for us, e.g. serve fresh breakfast, juice, delicious meals, and book a transfer to the airport. Thanks a lot.

    Junya2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Nice location, the staffs are really cool, easy contact, nice breakfast. The place is calm except that you would hear the nice wave sounds. All great! would come back here again.

    Du2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Good stay at Ramazan, we were welcomed by Hadji who was very attentive to us and took pleasure in sharing his culture with us, he organized superb excursions at very good prices! The house is very beautiful and very well located, there are many restaurants and bars in the surrounding area although we enjoyed enjoying the cuisine and cocktails offered by Ramazan. It is good to live and the view is exceptional! Thank you to the whole team, especially to Hadji! Keep going

    Popo House is a self sufficient eco house with solar electricity ( for lights , fridge and mobile charging ) and water from our well. It is simple eco living in a stunningly beautiful & peaceful location. If you value your independence & privacy than it would be perfect. A chance to escape from the stresses of modern life and hang in a hammock,eat fish directly from the sea and drink coconut water direct from the tree. It has its own naturally private small beach and masses of reef to explore.
    Popo House is a light , breezy spacious house . It has 2 ensuite double rooms with large double French windows that open nearly directly onto the beach! You can sleep with the windows wide open and listen to the sound of the sea. The bathrooms are simple with cold water showers & flushing loos. There is an high ceiled open plan kitchen / sitting room , very simply furnished , again with windows opening out to the sea. The kitchen has a solar fridge and a 2 ring gas cooker or you can make a fire & cook/bbq on the beach. Outside are hammocks and sun loungers and natural coconut palm umbrellas to offer shade from the African sun or relax and watch the seaweed ladies and fisherman at their work. There is a small naturally private beach metres from the house. Popo House is set in our own plot of land where the local goats and cows have free range . We are slowly planting fruit trees and hopefully will have a vegetable patch soon - work in progress !
    Popo House is in a very quiet area of Zanzibar island just south of Jambiani. There are a few fisherman who hang out under a tree about 500m away and you will see the seaweed ladies on the reef in the mornings . The sea is very tidal where we are going out a long way to reveal the reef which is interesting to wonder around looking at all the marine life. There is a small naturally private sandy beach which is nice to sit / sunbathe/ have BBQ’s on. It has to be noted that there are coral rocks on the beach ( see the pictures) and swimming is dependent on the tide. There is a lovely hotel called Blue Moon 300m away which has a wonderful natural swimming pool. The owners are happy for us to use this but they do like you to buy some drinks or snack etc. The food and drinks there are good and I have often gone there for a good Italian coffee , cake and a lovely swim.The staff there are lovely too. Jambiani is a 10 minutes ( 45 min walk ) drive away and as well as an awesome sandy beach it has a selection of beachside restaurants and a few local shops .It also offers kite surfing , diving , yoga , Friday night beach parties and other activities so if you want to dip into ‘mzungu’ life it is easy to do. Paje is about 10km away and is busier and has a small supermarket which even sells sourdough bread ! Jozani Forest is nearby as is the restaurant on the island . We are near the dolphins at Kizimkazi but please make sure you go with eco , nature friendly tour company as I worry about the dolphins wellbeing. Makanduki is a small local village where there is a petrol station and a few local shops and stalls. There is also a doctors clinic there. Unguja ( Zanzibar town ) is about 1.5 hours away and is definitely worth a visit is simply to walk around the old Stone Town . Nungwe , about 2.5 hours away, is in the north of the island and this is the busiest beach area of Zanzibar island . It is where the famous full moon parties take place once a month .
  • Exceptional location, simple and very comfortable house, well equipped, with a small almost private beach at the foot of the terrace. Discreet and efficient team. I hope to come back one day ...

    Marie2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Pristine beach holiday! Popo house offered us everything we were looking for. Fabulous beach with great ocean swimming, the tides were in our favour. Very comfortable eco home. At night the Fireflies , Bush babies , and sound of the Ocean fantastic. For shopping we found Makunduchi easy.

    Celeste2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Popo house is a beautiful place. Ideal to get away from everyday stress and hectic. Lucy and the staff at the house where super helpful, including fresh coconuts every day :) 100% recommended! There are also some nice corals to explore snorkeling out front the house. Recommended for good swimmers to walk out far while the tide is low, snorkel there and come back with the tide. Don't forget loads of sunscreen or better actually: long sleeve clothes when swimming!

    Leonie2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Very charming house in great private location. Friendly and helpfull staff. We enjoyed our visit very much. Notice that if you are expecting to use nearby pools in neighbour resorts, they will charge a bit more than a few drinks.

  • Popo House is a heavenly place for those who love nature and life in all simplicity by the sea. Warm welcome and pleasant stay in the heart of Zanzibarian life. Attention, if no car, you have to anticipate the races ...

    Jean-Marc2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Popo house is a lovely spacious house where you are completely on your own, which is quite rare here in Zanzibar. It was just what we needed to unwind. It is very peaceful and remote. Don't forget to bring all your own supplies as there really is nothing in this area .

    siesta2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • Very good at Lucy's house. We were very comfortable. It has not far a supermarket where you find all kinds of products and also buy fish from local people and we did it at the barbecue at night. I recommend it.

    Jambiani/Shungi, Zanzibar Central/South Region, Tanzania

    My place is in the heart of Stone Town! It has great views, especially of a beautiful sunset. It's close to art and culture, the coast, the food market, restaurants and dining, and family-friendly activities. The rooftop room and terrace are private and are in a Zanzibar style home. On the same street you'll find local shops and traveler's choice restaurants such as Lukemaan and La Taverna. There is also a bank across the street. Good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. There is a safe, kitchen, AC, hot water and extra toiletries in case you need them.
  • Arsheen’s place is as indicated. It’s easy to find as it’s not quite in the labyrinth called Stone Town. Air conditioning is a nice plus as Zanzibar is quite hot and fans just don’t cool enough. The rooftop isn’t quite the million dollar view I had read in previous reviews but you can’t balk at it either. I would definitely recommend Arsheen’s place to fellow travelers.

    Ken2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and the roof top balcony is a great place to chill and read a book as you bask in the lack of wifi. Step back in time with the surrounding sights sounds and smells of stone town.

    Robert2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is my 3rd time staying here. Needless to say I planned my trip around Arsheen’s place being available. That is how much I like it. The location, the view, everything is great.

    Chad2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay in Arsheen's loft. Both Arsheen and her uncle were helpful, provided information when needed and made good recommendations about Stone Town. They helped us with a guide and taxi for the airport. The place itselft was clean and had everything one needed, including a well equiped kitchen. Thank you Arsheen! Andreea&Claudiu

    Claudiu2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Good value for money compared to many hotels in Stone Town. The flat is basic but it has everything you need: the bed is comfortable, the bathroom is good, and the AC is working. We didn’t use the kitchen. The hosts Arsheen and Mushtaq were both very friendly and helpful. Arsheen arranged our laundry to be done for a great price, put us in touch with a reliable driver Kassim and offered help booking tours for us.

    Anna-Britta2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great location to explore Stone town. We did have issues with water running out twice during our 3 night stay, but once we contacted Arsheen, the issues were resolved promptly. She even contacted us the following day to ensure that we didn’t have any further issues. We were so thankful for having Air conditioning in this unit! Wifi for this property would have made it even better. Overall, great value for money and a very caring, concerned host.

    Anushka2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • The loft is really well situated in Stone Town. The private balcony is a nice touch, and there was a small kitchen (though we didn't need to use it since there were so many great restaurants around).

    Faye2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely loft in a perfect location. Arsheen is a wonderful host, very communicative and accommodating with a late checkout. I met her uncle Mushtaq who is so kind and assisted me immensely. I would not hesitate to return and to recommend.

    It is in the centre of lively Stonetown, you meet easily people,the apartment is next to shops and restaurants with the sea and the park around the corner, close to the market, an ideal place to relax and have fun.
  • Brenda's apartment has been furnished with great attention to detail and the decoration was not spared. This gives the apartment an individuality that you miss in most hotel rooms. What you cannot see in the photos is the ceiling height of over 5 meters, which triggers a certain "wow" effect when you enter the apartment. The apartment has two balconies, one to the street and one to the staircase, which is open upwards, so that there is always a light breeze. The kitchen is well equipped, there is even an espresso maker and a coffee grinder. Upon arrival, water bottles are ready, as well as the popular Zanzibar powdered coffee and tea. The bathroom equipment, fittings and ceramic parts are better than in many hotels. The bathroom has a large window, and if it is open, there is also a slight draft here. The beds, even if they are not king size, are comfortable and have mosquito nets. If you not only book this apartment for a short trip to Stonetown, we were in Stonetown for three weeks, you can also enjoy the room service, which is carried out by Bibi Awalda twice a week. The apartment is maintained and kept clean, and the fresh towels even smell pleasant. At this point, many thanks to Bibi Awalda for her really good service. And also to Bwana Salum, who is responsible for the "airport shuttle". Conclusion: A gem, in the middle of the old town, behind the old Ford. From here everything can be reached on foot within 5-10 minutes.

    Andreas2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and beautiful apartment in the heart of Stone Town. From there you can walk easily and explore the whole city. The neighborhood is also fine and I could go out alone without any problem. The apartment with the two balconies is very cosy and beautiful, with the many fans it was not too hot. A great place to stay!

    Renate2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • I spent 10 days in Brenda's place in 3 or even 4 consecutive years. It has the highest possible standard in the middle of Stone Town's old houses. The living and bedroom is very charming indeed, beautiful furniture and all! It is ideal for a single, a couple or a couple with 1 kid. I will go back there for sure. Brenda also has a very, very reliable cleaner and also a taxi driver for airport transfers any day and night time or for day trips. Perfect!

    Alexander2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Brenda's accommodation is exactly as described in the heart of Stone Town, surrounded by everything you need, even the specified contact person had become a real friend to us for all questions, arrangements and transfers. The large spacious colonial apartment is lovingly decorated and furnished, nothing is missing. Even Omar the fruit dealer in front of the door is looking forward to a morning chat.

    Thomas2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts are great, the apartment is beautiful and it could not be better located. If you want to be able to explore the old town and be walk distance from everywhere, don't think it twice! stay there =)

    Montserrat2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is beautiful! Brenda and Ari were great hosts, they were accommodating and were very helpful! Communication was smooth and the responses came quicky. The apartment is located in a somewhat busy street in Stone Town, so expect some noise from the buzzling street. That being said, I wouldnt hesitate to stay there again as the apartment is great!

    Maiken Bjerga2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Stylish apartment in the center of Stone Town, Equipped kitchen, refrigerator, bath. Thanks to Ire for the accuracy and organization of car parking. We really enjoyed.

  • Petra is really an amazing host. She provides a prepared map, gives great suggestions on where to eat, visit, and best routes to get there. She has a good rapport with various people in Stonetown, which says a lot about her. The studio is even better and more spacious than pictured. It's kept immaculate and very clean. The hot water is more than sufficient, and the fridge is cold. It is also in a great location for walking into Stonetown. I felt safe walking late at night by myself. I highly recommend this rooftop studio if you are able to walk the multiple flights of stairs. The view is amazing from all sides. I ran into an issue unrelated to Petra or the apartment, and she was concerned until everything was resolved, which was kind of her.

    Heidi2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • I think Petra was the sweetest host I had never had! She took the time to give me good adresses and reliable people to do my activities with. The studio was perfect for me! Highly recommend!

    Martine2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Petras place was beautiful and wonderfully located very close to all the markets and shops. Petra herself was a fantastic host and had a wealth of information that made our trip even more enjoyable!

    Christa2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Before checking into Petra's apartment, I had high expectations based on the listing and pictures. Despite my high expectation, my stay there was even better than I hoped for. The apartment and Petra were both fabulous. Highly, highly recommend.

    Barry2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Petra’s place was the perfect home base for our visit to Stonetown. Her tips, map, and contacts made finding the best meals, tours, and places to watch the sunset a breeze. (We never had to walk more than 15 min to get anywhere too.) She was very communicative and even helped us arrange airport transport. The apartment itself was modern and cozy, perfect for our weekend stay, but with all the kitchen amenities it would have been perfect for a longer stay too. Asante sana for everything, Petra!

    Rebekah.A.Brown@Gmail.Com2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Super host ! Thank you Petra

    Dounia2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great location to explore the island from.

    Tony2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • This place is exactly as is in the pictures provided on this platform. Petra organised airport pickup for me & although my flight was delayed, I found the driver still waiting for me. The car was clean and air conditioned. Upon arrival at the apartment, Petra was waiting to welcome me personally. She got to familiarise me to each and every detail of what is provided in the apartment as well as the entire town by the aid of a digital map with key places, restaurants and activities marked for reference. Every now and again, Petra would message me to check if I needed anything. The apartment itself plus utensils and linen were spotless and everything I needed was provided. Would I stay here again? Absolutely! Would I recommend this apartment? 10/10!

  • Kamen & Miglena are truly deserving of the title Superhost. They go out of their way to make a guest feel welcome. I felt very privileged to get to experience their warm hospitality, taste their delicious cooking, and explore the marine wonderland right outside their doorstep. It was an added bonus to hang out with a very cool family. Truly a treat!

    Marilyn2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • This was a really lovely experience. The family are really warm but give you plenty of space and the house itself has so much character and is in the best location, midway through the beach. The balcony is extraordinary.

    Hallie2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • In the evening, Upon arrival, I went to the house to Kamen and Miglene. I was met by a beautiful hospitable Woman, showed the house and offered my help in resolving any issues. In the morning, I became distracted by the view that opens from the terrace on the second floor. This is not just the first line, it is the sea embracing the first steps of the stairs! Then a delicious breakfast awaited me - Coffee, papaya, mango, pineapple, delicious donuts, which Kamen prepared, honey, jam, in general, everything to fully enjoy the first morning. Miglena helped me with the rental of the bike, found a place where it can be done cheaper than I found. Later I helped with the organization of the excursion, when it took me into my head in the late evening ... in general, Miglena and Kamen are simply wonderful. By the way, they speak good Russian!) This is love, I want to come back again! With regards to the house: it is beautiful, African-style, incredible courtyard and very clean! Every day, Africans come to clean the house. And in the evenings, cool Music plays)

  • Simple house very well decorated by our guests whose asset is undoubtedly the magnificent terrace on the sea. It feels like a boat. Unique experience.

    Rachel2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • Frankly, I do not know where to start. We had a dream holiday thanks to these exceptional hosts who are more than nice, we feel directly at home and they do everything for. First of all, thank you for the two of you for the discovery of the magical place for the sunset, we had a good time, thank you for the warm welcome especially to Miglena who has not hesitated to wake up in the middle of at night to give me aloe vera for my husband. Thank you for the cleanliness of the house, thank you for your smiles. Kamen, thank you for your wonderful breakfast and cheese-cake. I highly recommend the address you will not regret it. If it was again I repeat the same thing. Thank you very much to both of you and good luck

    Fatima2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place was absolutely fantastic! Kamen and miglena were awesome hosts, the house is beautiful, perfect location and the breakfast was to die for! If I could, I’d just move in with them haha but actually we were totally in love with everything at this Airbnb. They also helped us get a dhow trip to go snorkeling very last minute and it was great. Seriously this has been my best Airbnb experience thus far.

  • My friends and I had a lovely stay at Erica's place. She has moved to a new location and the bedrooms are all ensuite now providing more privacy. The pool was a good size and the area around the pool was set up nicely for relaxing. Even though the house is shared, there are a few places different groups can hang out and they all have AC units to help cool the spaces down. Erica is very good at communicating with guests and is very helpful. She lives in the house and is always around to help or answer questions if needed. Her house is the perfect location if you need to be on the peninsula and don't want to fight traffic. We enjoyed being close to everything.

And the air conditioning... oh the air conditioning!!! So lovely. Highly recommended. Good breakfast too. I'll probably end up staying again.

Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. I also used her driver, and he was so patient and knowledgable. I wish I could have stayed longer at Erica’s house. She is the perfect host. Such a comfortable and easy stay! Can't recommend enough.

On request we provide also a transfer service from/ to the airport or from/to the harbor. After years of experience in the hospitality business on the Spices Island, we decided to take it a step further and set up our own B&B. Simba Beach consists of 8 rooms all facing the sea and situated right on the beach. Our rooms are all double and two of them are triple room. All have four-poster bed with mosquito net, bedside tables, wardrobe open, table and chairs, ceiling fan, private bathroom and veranda. In addition, all rooms have tiled floors. Simba Beach wants to be a structure ECO-Friendly, as the rooms are not air conditioned, but are naturally cooled by the sea breeze coming in through the glassless windows, which are obviously all protected by mosquito nets. At the Simba Beach is also available the Restaurant, with à la carte menù, and the Bar, both with an amazing ocean view. If you are not into travel lodges and want to experience the local culture, discover the real Zanzibar and its traditions, and if your idea of travel is to relax and explore at the same time, then this is the place for you. In our family-run guest-house will make you feel at home and will personally take care of any aspect of your holiday. ZANZIBAR is a wild, luscious island, full of exciting places to discover, a fascinating corner of Africa that hits you right in your heart, a place where you can still feel the magic legacy of the sultans’ kingdom, where different cultures and heritages meet and whose white sand beaches and sea tides mesmerising rhythm will enchant you… Come and discover the pure and untouched beauty of Nature, the smile of its warm people, the fragrance of its spices and its breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.

  • Simba is a very cool place to stay. Chantal and Marco where always around to help when ever needed. They have created an amazing family like environment which is warming and down to earth. The restaurant staff are friendly, polite and even offer a few Swahili lessons if you ask. The rooms are kept clean and tidy. If you looking for a place where you want to just be yourself and not feel judged Simba is the right place for you.

  • This was one of the best Airbnb’s I’ve stayed at! The apartment was just as pictured and described and Marco and Nikki were fantastic hosts who went above and beyond for their guests. Juma the cook is also amazing. I would definitely recommend having at least one meal from him.

    Eric2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Marco was a great Host, he was always around checking in if everything was ok and also recommended afew activities while I had nothing to do that were cost efficient and fun!

    Patricia2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic place right on the beach and provided a lovely relaxing holiday. Alice and Martin were very friendly and helpful and made sure we had a great visit. We bought a few groceries at the nearby town but there are numerous places within a 10-20 min walk where you could buy breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks or drinks. The restaurant meals were outstanding - especially Arena restaurant and Papaya restaurant. We would highly recommend this place for a vacation.

    Grace2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Marco's stylish apartment is perfectly located on the beach in Kiwenga with unobstructed views of the ocean. It is a safe, secure place and the location couldn't be better: close enough to restaurants to give you lots of options for dinner and drinks, but far away enough to escape the hustle and bustle. The front garden is a perfect space to relax in and enjoy the views. We were received by Alice who was very welcoming and there were even some fruits and fresh avocado waiting. The apartment itself is spacious, well furnished, has beautiful bathrooms and is cleaned daily. We felt safe, secure and welcome throughout our stay with Marco and Alice - they were easily contactable to answer any questions about local excursions etc.

  • It is wonderful great villa with a amazing summer terrace and view from there. All reviews about villa are absolutely right. Large pool and territory around villa so amazed us. Really highly reccomend for all of you. Note for next visitors: please, don't forget to feed a cats living there, specially little sick kitten. It is so cute. We liked it so much!

    Мария2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Hard to find on arrival but they will pick you up on the street. The 2 staff members always provide breakfast for free and dinner for a fee. Very helpful men. Beautiful location, balcony opens onto the sea, so a beautiful location to eat. The wad is always clean. Rooms are good, only the bathrooms on the lesser side. During our stay the power went out on the street, luckily they had a generator that could provide the necessary. A good experience!

    Wouter2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Although it takes a little search to find the villa, the place is really unique. Indeed, the very functional house, the very large swimming pool and the small shed overlooking the ocean make the stay magnificent. Certainly, as said before, the house is up to the standards of the country. But it is clean, hyper functional (3 very large rooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 with hot water, a large kitchen, a very large living room) and we do not come here to stay inside. And so, between the pool, garden and cabana overlooking the beach, it's really a beautiful place. Special mention for mister Benjamin and Mister Mang, who are in the small house at the entrance, who are very caring (excellent breakfasts, possibility of dinners, fresh coconut ...) and who know how to remain discreet. And all that with always a huge smile screwed. In short, we recommend. Only important point: there is really nothing to do around, provide a vehicle or see on the spot to be conveyed to visit the treasures of Zanzibar. :-)

    Cédric2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place to relax on Zanzibar's east coast. The outside area and the pool were amazing, exactly like shown in the pictures. The house itself offered plenty of space for up to 6 people, but it could use some more maintenance and someone with back problems may not have the greatest sleep in the beds. However all essential things were working fine like internet and a/c in the bed rooms. The communication with Sheigo was great and his two staff on site were super friendly and helpful. They cooked us a delicious dinner one night and tasty breakfast every morning. But it's definitely a good idea to bring some groceries from Stone Town as others have written. There's a resort next door but the only option to eat there was to buy a day pass for $35.

    Christian2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful spot in a local fishing village. We loved the pool and swimming with the local kids when the tide was in. Please bring everything with you except seafood and you will have a fantastic time. It is possible to get some local fruit and vegetables but without a car it is challenge of logistics to get beer, tonic water etc.

    Laura2019-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful view of the ocean and in the middle of Paje and Nungwi beaches. Sheigo’s crew provided breakfast for us every morning and we worked with them on getting transportation wherever we wanted to go! Highly recommend this spot! Wifi was a bit spotty on times, but I was off the grid anyways. We also hired a chef, Miki, to cook us a fantastic meal and hung out with our guide, Peace, from Stonetown. Highly recommend Sheigo putting you in touch with these guys for an overall perfect experience while in Zanzibar. I cannot wait to be back!

    Kiernan2019-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • Sheigo was a great host! He was very responsive to any questions we had and very accommodating! We had a last minute (approx 1 month before) addition to our group of travelers, and Sheigo did not hesitate to allow us to have an additional guest. There are a couple of gentleman that help out around the place - making sure it is clean, and one made us breakfast in the mornings. They helped us to arrange transportation to various activities that we wanted to do while on Zanzibar. The location of the house was a little tough to find initially, but we got there just fine -- being right on the beach made the trek out there so worth it! My family and I all agree that this was the best accommodations we stayed at during our trip to Tanzania!

It's also very close to the fantastic Kiwengwa Beach. Majid is very kind and helpful. We look forward to come there for the third time.

    John2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • I enjoyed my time staying at Kamili View. Carola was super responsive and help set up an excursion for me. My flight was late getting to Zanzibar but the staff waited for me 🧡 Majid was super helpful. I enjoyed staying on this part of the island and just seeing a different environment driving to Kamili View. The pool was awesome and the walk to the beach is quick. Thank you Kamili View for your awesome space in East Africa. Beautiful community setting surrounding it.

    Allison2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • I booked the stay for my husband and I but had a couple of last minute surprises so I had to pass it on to my parents. They made this process very easy and also offered so much additional help, as my parents are older. They loved the house and the beach. This will be my first stop after my surprise makes his/her grand entrance in the next few months. I’ll need a beach get away! 😊

    A secluded, quiet and comfortable beach cottage directly on the powder soft, palm fringed beach of Matemwe. Private pool, BBQ and well equipped kitchen for self-catering. Within easy distance from restaurants and small beach lodges. Owners close by to offer any assistance you need with purchasing supplies, organising tours and interesting insights to island life.
    Right on one of the most beautiful beaches with your own pool and huge garden leading directly onto the beach. Great outdoor area for reading, relaxing, swimming and dinning al fresco. Great space for children to play. As the house is set back fromt he beach you enjoy total privacy.
    We are biased but the best on the island! It is so beautiful, quiet and unspoilt. There are a few places to eat and drink close by and the beach is long so you can cycle or walk to many places!
  • A place to relax and enjoy a very relaxing holiday! Very loving hosts and very friendly staff. And don't forget: Plot right on the shores of the Indian Ocean! Just perfect !

    Eva2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Thoroughly enjoyed staying at Gail's place. Accommodation spot on and the beach in front of the house is lovely and quiet. All breakfast ingredients were provided and hosts went the extra mile, by going to pick up some bacon for us, providing fresh juice and fruit every morning and were very hepful in booking a dive for us through One Ocean. We all had a really relaxed time and could do it all again tomorrow.

    Helene2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Nice house, very convenient for a family of four. Located on a very pretty stretch of beach, the house is calm, with no vis-a-vis, well equiped and clean. Plenty of restaurants around if you don't want to cook. The pool is small but useful for kids during low tide.

    Laurent2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • A little slice of heaven! We stayed for a short two days but it was lovely having a pool and the beach right in your own backyard. Gary and Gail were excellent hosts. Loved having such a private space. Highly recommend if you’re ever in Zanzibar!

    Hannah2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful house, close to the beach. Very nice staff and hospitality. Privacy and cleanes. Thanks to Gary, Gail and his team for caring. When we needed something they were always near to help us.

    Hristo2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • It was a pleasure staying at Gails and Garys place and if we could, we would’ve stayed longer! They were so kind and always did their best to support us. The house is really nice and clean (it was cleaned once a day) with two ACs to get along with the humidity. It’s separated from the hosts house so you have a lot of privacy and it has its own access to the beach. They can arrange different trips, e.g. to Stone Town or a spice tour, and snorkeling or diving as Gary has his own Diving School. They easily arrange a driver if you need one and provide tasty bread and fruits. We highliy recommend the accommodation of Gail and Gary! Thank you so much for hosting us.

    Nina2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Two weeks of happiness in paradise :-) Gary is super responsive to the messages he responds very quickly he welcomed us very well and made sure that our trip went smoothly, he organized a taxi driver that I recomande. The house is very well located there is the beach which is just a few meters, we have scooter all along the beach it is just the most beautiful beach that is in front of the house and then the pool which is much bigger than the pictures we were shocked by the size of the pool I measure 1m90, you have two nice restaurant by the beach which is on your left when you go out of the gate to the beach is 800 m a restaurant with sand on the ocean and a second restaurant 300 m with a sign that is on the sand "food local matemwe" which is attached near a path that leads you to the village the taste is wonderful and the price you will find no less expensive we ate there every lunch for two weeks.

  • This is a detached house on a shared plot with the owner. But full privacy is respected, since the house of the owner and guests are separated by a fence. In the courtyard there is everything you need: grill, cold shower, swimming pool (small but deep with a comfortable water temperature), deck chairs. A lot of greenery, so the ocean is not visible from your terrace, but it is very close. As expected, in this part of the island there are pronounced tides. But this has its advantages, you can wander along the bottom of the ocean. There is also a pool. The owner arranged a meeting for us at the airport. Transfer cost 50 dollars. On the way, we stopped by and bought fruits and vegetables. I strongly recommend doing the same. Within walking distance there is no way to buy anything. We made an order and the next day we received fresh fish and octopuses. Although the price for the island, where it’s directly caught, seemed to us a little overpriced. But you get peeled seafood without the hassle and drive to the market. The owner and his assistants try to make your stay as comfortable as possible. What breakfast means is included: you will have products (bread, milk, cereal jams, butter, fruits (in our case bananas and watermelons), juice, eggs, coffee and tea. You will make breakfast yourself from them. The kitchen is well equipped. There is dishes, as well as oil, seasonings, sugar, salt. The owner provides drinking water. And asks not to buy water in plastic bottles, because he cares about the environment. This is commendable. The house consists of a bedroom, a bathroom (hot and cold water), kitchen-living room. There are 2 air conditioners. For 3 days of stay we had one cleaning. There is bath and beach towels. My husband and I enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

    Just 30 minutes from downtown Arusha. A beautiful spacious Chalet with an amazing view of Mount Meru, and the surrounding valley. The Chalet is on 2.5 acres of land with lots of young trees and grass. It is quiet, serene, relaxing and thus perfect for unwinding away from the chaos of the city. Guests can enjoy a campfire at night.
    Unique Architecture with an open loft-style layout. One large bedroom open to below with curtains. Double King bed (Two meters by two meters) and roll-out double bed. Two large sleep-on couches are also available. Three outside decks to enjoy the views. A small pool is available, can be filled with natural Mount Meru fresh spring water for an extra fee, (Pure spring water with no chemicals). Excellent for families, couples and close friends.
    This Chalet is on 2.5 acres of land, the valley and mountain views are breathtaking. Very quiet and private. You can go for a hike on nearby Kilimamoto (which has a deep crater inside), or visit a Masai village for an insight into the Maasai way of living.
  • The space is perfect. The chalet architecture is designed to emphasize the natural beauty all around. Both balconies have wide open views of the countryside and from the loft area, Mount Meru is unobstructed! Inside, Nimo has provided every amenity you can think of. The bathroom is stocked with soap, shampoo, and a blowdryer. The kitchen has so many dishes and cooking utensils that cooking is so fun! The breakfast supplies exceeded expectations—mangos and avocados were beautiful and the eggs are from the property! We loved the swimming pool equipped with pool noodles and a ball to play with. The staff onsite were really friendly and helped with anything we needed—including a new gas container and an evening bonfire. We also took advantage of a beautiful hike to a nearby crater. Nimo’s driver is fabulous and very reasonably priced for trips into town/to the airport. This was one of my favourite Airbnb experiences and I will definitely be back to see Nimo and Gernot at Shamba Lodge!

  • Nimo was an incredible host, with great communication and willing to help in anyway she can. Her place was in a beautiful location, perfect for relaxing away from the city. We would love to return someday 😊

    Sean2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place

    Arseneau2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • The chalet is in an idyllic place at a hill in the middle of green nature. The surrounded garden gives time to relax and to enjoy the view of Mount Meru and the other hills. At night you can sit arround the fire and look at the stars. The small pool is good for a refreshment. We found the chalet bigger than we thought from the photos. For us a bit annoying was the cat that liked to entered all the time in the chalet and was crying a lot. The other animals like the 2 dogs, rabbits and chicken are tranquil and very friendly. When it rains heavily it could happen the the electricity is not working or only in a reduced mode. The smart security guy and gardener lives on the ground and is every time available for help. Thanks a lot Thomas. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need to cook including spices etc. Breakfast is included in the price to prepare on your own. The chalet is frequently cleaned without an extra charge thanks to Joeyce. Towels and toilet paper are provided for free. The 2 chefs Kelvin and Salma were both very good and cooked delicious meals. We had a great time with Salma. Nimo is an excellent host. She's very friendly, professional and answers every question and organize whatever you like. The communication with here was very good. Many thanks!!

    Sebastian2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • We appreciated that Nimo was in the house to meet my friend June and I. She gave us a thorough run-through of the chalet and detailed local while enjoying the view of Mt. Meru which is visible from the house. We had a pleasant time with assistance from the caretakers whenever we needed to be assisted. We managed to use a reliable taxi recommended to us by Nimo to visit the cultural centre and Arusha town. Overall my stay was memorable and relaxing I would recommend a stay at the cabin anyday!

    Mwendwa2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Nimo's place is perfect for a stay in Arusha away from the chaos of the city. It is a quiet, clean, spacious and calming place. The location was great with amazing views Mt. Meru and beautiful hillside sunset views. Nimo was very nice, easy to talk to and very friendly when she welcomed us. I would definitely come again!

    Allen2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The House is as shown on the pictures: just amazing! It’s situated middle in the nowhere, but you will find there everything you will need. And Nimo is a very friendly and kindly person. You will feel like coming home.

    Verena2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Nimo's place is exactly like the pictures. Rustic, but modern chalet facing Mt. Meru and over looking lush farmland of Arusha. My husband and I stayed here for two nights after an 8 day safari, and it was the perfect place to relax and take in the scenery. Nimo responded almost instantly to my questions, provided local recommendations, and has a driver that can take you to and from the city, which is about a 20 minute drive. We also opted to have dinner cooked for us the night we arrived and it was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend booking Nimo's place for your trip.

    Bert2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful place that has every comfort and yet is not a mega hotel block! Cozy with real traditional flair!

    Sonja2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • I enjoyed every minute i spent here and i was sad because i only booked one night. My bungalow was clean and much bigger than i expected. The meals are so delicious! I had check out at 11 a.m, but my taxi came at 4p.m, it was no problem at all to stay longer :) Shebi is such a nice person, and so is the whole staff. Hope to see you again So I can only recommend this place!

    Monika2019-06-21T00:00:00Z
  • Very cosy place with a lot of exiting details. Shebi was a very nice, safe and responsible host. We liked it a lot The place in the south of Zanzibar is calm and peaceful still not exploited as other places. We warmly recommend it!

    Rigmor2019-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • even with The issue at the arrival, everything was Great ! The rooms were clean and very nice, The food was Good, The place is beautiful! and we did see dolphins <3 thank You for this beautiful Time!

    Ola2018-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • What a pleasant stay... we really appreciate the hospitality, the scenic views and refreshing humility that your staff extended to us.

    Ndumiso2018-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Super chilly lodge on a reef with beautiful views of the sea. Beautifully landscaped garden with hammocks, lawns and swings to rest. Friendly staff and great local cuisine. The only thing missing is a beach near the lodge.

    Sabine2018-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • If you want to relax and unwind then this is the place. There are loads of hammocks and the staff is really friendly and helpful. However, you must be aware that there is not much else in the area, they offer of course excursions. We lived in one of the little houses. Super nice furnished, a bit dark but that did not bother us. Breakfast was not very varied but good. The food was also delicious but unfortunately a touch of European (as almost everywhere on Zanzibar), we thought that was a shame. All in all, I can only recommend the property. very nice facility and clean.

  • We had a great stay at Andrew's place. Our bungalow was pretty big and we had a nice terrace (sometimes we even saw some monkeys :)) the whole surrounding is really beautiful and it's a great stay for relaxation! Andrew was super chill and friendly and helped us when we needed help! Also, the location is super close to the beach! There is nice beach bars around, too! We can highly recommend this place! :)

    Anne2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • We rested in Peku-Peku for 2 weeks in January 2020. A hospitable host. A very beautiful place. All people are very friendly and helpful. We were pleased with the choice. The lack of air conditioning in the bungalow was a bit of a problem.

    Iurii2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, thanks mate

    Roni2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Peku peku’s bungalows and the grown around them are like a little paradise. Andrew is the utmost host, always thinking ahead of your needs, giving great tips. Nearby Michamvi beach is great. I will come back to peku peku.

    Carl2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Peku Peku at Andrew's. The place is really very well decorated and restored with great taste. The bungalow is fully equipped and really very spacious, in the middle of unspoiled nature. Andrew's garden is very well landscaped and moved in tastefully. Peku Peku is really conducive to relaxation, 5 minutes walk from a paradise beach, with an incredible sunset ... We highly recommend this place for a unique stay!

    Severine2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • The pictures really don't do this justice. Set in such a beautiful place and surroundings. Spottlessly clean Andrew could not do enough for us and was always on hand if we needed anything. A bonus was watching the bush babies at night. Thank you andrew will deffo stay here again if i ever come back

    Katherine2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Andrew has been very kind to my parents, he has helped them at all times, the place is beautiful, very quiet, ideal to rest and get to know good beaches, the beautiful house and close to the beach. Although the area is not very developed but Andrew helps to get everything you need.

    Eric2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great bungalow with everything you need: a kitchen, a fresh water bathroom, a secluded location, a veranda overlooking a stunning garden and of course, the most friendly owner in the world) Andrew helped us a lot, told everything you need about local life. We spent a wonderful two weeks here, were in several places in Zanzibar and here you definitely get the best at this price! An excellent beach is within walking distance, a five-minute village, where you can buy everything you need for cooking, and from there, there is also a shuttle bus to other villages and villages.

    Welcome to our home! If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful and relaxing stay in privacy on the country side, you will not be disappointed. Our house is sited 2.5 km north of Bwejuu village, on a hill, only a 3 minutes walk from the Indian ocean. There is a ceiling fan in each room for your comfort. There are 2 spaceous bedrooms and a livingroom. The kitchen is modern. 1 bathroom. A roof top terracce with sofas in the shadow, sunbeds and a most appreciated outside shower. Access to wifi.
    Private two bedroom house with fenced garden, situated on a quiet hill near the Indian ocean. This is the perfect spot for you who wants to unwind in peace, quiet and privacy and a feeling like home while you explore Zanzibar in your own pace.

    Our part of Bwejuu is quiet and the beach is stunningly beautiful. At East Coast the tide varies in hights and times.

Our neighbours along the dust road are all private houses. Along the beach you can find a variety of restaurants, bars and hotels. Try the Restaurant at Evergreen Bungalows or the Upepo close to our house. There are small kiosks and shops in the village some 2.5 km away, and there you can find the basic groceries you might need. There is an ATM installed in Paje village, but to be sure, we strongly recommend you withdraw enough funds for Your visit before leaving Stone Town.
  • Maria has such a beautiful home, the pictures don't do it enough justice. It is spacious and clean and the added extra of a roof top area is great to sunbath in private. Maria, is very friendly and always responds quickly which made it feel like she was here. Jahaa whole stays on the property is also very nice and helpful. The dogs are amazing, they are intelligent and very protective while out and about which made us feel more safe (I miss them very much and I am more of a cat person), but be weary as the locals do not like the dogs - so I felt I needed to protect the dogs alot while walking places. I would suggest staying close to Evergreen with them. The beach is an easy 3min strole and Evergreen cafe is the most convenient, unfortunately I did not have a great experience there due to being of African descent (which is strange as the staff are also African), but to all others, the staff are very friendly and accommodating. However, if you fancy a 8min or 15min strole along the beach heading towards Jambiani beach there are two beach restaurants with outstanding customer service and with far better food quality - Blue Fountain restaurant and African Paradise restaurant, an added bonus is the closer you go to Jambiani beach the more beautiful the sea is. The only things I would note about Maria's place is the vast amount of insects (which are to be expected, we just kept the shutters closed), the heat can be pretty unbearable at times (especially at night), the shops are quite far so stock up on food before you go, about 4,000 tzn shillings a night us needed for electricity, and WiFi is not that reliable (we spent 20,000 tzn shillings and it ran out after 3 days). Also note, that Maria's home is about an hour and a half drive from Stone town and drivers are paid is USD (about $40 from the airport to Maria's).

    Ruth2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Maria’s place was great! The house looks much nicer in reality. It is very spacious and the roof terrace is wonderful for a sundowner in the evening. The highlight for us were the two guard dogs that are so sweet and attention seeking. Make sure you take them to the beach with you they will be happy and follow you everywhere. Down at the evergreen they are more than welcome to hang around with you - a great place for lunch, dinner & cocktails btw.

    Florence2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Mari's house is beautiful and cozy. beautiful garden, two dogs who cared for our safety. a nice touch is the roof shower. helpful service of local residents lived behind our cottage, we recommend this place to everyone

    Sebastian2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • The description and photos don’t do it justice. From the start it felt like our own private get away and all the little touches around the grounds and house only add to its charm. Would definitely recommend!

    Katie2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • stunning house and location, amazing holidays, definitely a place I would go back to :)

    Cristina2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • This really is a tropical Paradise. We loved the house, the rooftop star gazing, sitting in the garden, and strolling down to the beach at the Evergreen. We did some trips to the village which is a hike. Walking along the beach is much better than the road. The guard dogs were super friendly and accompanied us each time to the beach. They wanted to go along to the village too but the villagers do not like the dogs. Make sure to ask for help keeping them at the house (they escaped several times and joined us on the busy road.)

    Amy2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Maria is a great host, she has all the contact you will need (food, scooter, etc..). The house is a piece of heaven, it's is big, nice and close to the beach. The area is good because there is not too much people but there is still some restaurant around. It's not too far from a city if you need to do grocerie or to go to an ATM. I definitely recommend this place.

    Yann2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
