A room high up on stilts, under a traditional Makuti roof and right on Kendwa Beach in front of Zanzibar Parasailing Clubhouse with great views over the Kendwa bay. The beautiful sunset views are an added bonus!
It is the one and only room which has such a unique view. It is an open air room with coconut wooden walls to protect your privacy. The front side is open which looks directly to the Indian Ocean and the amazing Kendwa Beach. It is certainly different to the norm.
This room is literally on the beach with the staircase ending on the beach sand. There are several hotels and local restaurants close by. The village with some local shops for basic necessities is close by behind the clubhouse.
  • The roof is a very original place to stay in Kwenda. Big resorts all around, you will be the little exception of the entire beach. Up to the parasailing office, be prepared to wake you up with the sound of the see and with the white sand beach in front of you. The little (bad) thing to highlight is that the roof doesn’t have a door to lock the place. It is not problematic as there is a locker upstairs but if you want to be 100% safe and alone, maybe think twice :)

  • We absolutely loved the spacious room and had a great time. The view is breathtaking and because it’s all open you get a lovely breeze, especially at nighttime. Everyone is super friendly and helpful. The stretch of the beach is perfect for swimming and water activities. We felt safe without any doors and the locals were all welcome and friendly. My personal favourite accommodation ever!

  • The accommodation is just awesome! At high tide, the ocean stands right under your balcony. There were no problems with the bathroom, it is clean enough and working properly. The internet works great. You can use the kitchen and cook food on it, and nearby fishermen sell fresh fish. In general, accommodation is a great choice for a vacation. It is much more pleasant and interesting than stone hotels and really very close to the ocean.

    Anna2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely recommended. It’s literally on the beach. Amazing view and when the tide is high the water is almost under the hut which is unique. The only thing that might be important to consider is that some nights some ravens can come right over the roof and be really noisy which sometimes makes hard to sleep. So probably I wouldn’t stay long periods but for a few nights it’s perfect and totally worth it.

    Paz Andrea2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • I really liked this experience. I doubted about safety, but everything turned out to be safe and generally super, such a reboot sometimes needs to be arranged when you don’t have walls and doors :) A large room, you can watch the life of the beach, sunsets, enough furniture, clean linen, a tea / coffee maker , tea, water, the room was cleaned every day, linen was changed on demand. Shower and toilet are shared, but not annoying, everything is clean. All staff are friendly. Large kitchen with everything you need. And at the same time, you "live" on the beach :) During the correspondence they answered right away, they explained everything intelligently. You can buy the freshest fish from the fishermen, they pass by every day .. Caitlin and Colin thank you again. Take Birushi and something (pareo to protect the doorway). I will be on Kendva again, I will return to you) ABOUT I was very pleased Stayed for 7 nights :)

    Ирина2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • The room has the best view and it's so relaxing to sit and watch life from your birds eye view of the beach. The staff were all really welcoming and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

    Wendy2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • What unusual and fun accommodation. Ideal for arriving on the island to start the stay. Our plane landed in the middle of the night. We had booked transportation with Debbie and for 50 dollars the taxi was waiting for us at the airport. 1 hour trip. A stopover to climb. And there you have it: a very beautiful beach. Of course, considering the price, the toilet and shower are rudimentary. No big deal! The view was too great.

    Bruno2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • It was a wonderful experience to stay at a location like this. I cannot imagine a nicer place. Of course it is special to sleep in an open space, especially when the weather is turbulent. All in all a perfect place to stay if you like an adventure.

    Budget double room for a stress free no frills accommodation. Room are the perfect pied-a-terre for sports lovers and explorers in Zanzibar Did I mention we have a private beach?! Yes, there is fiber optic wifi in each room!!
    Surfescape village in Zanzibar is your perfect base for outdoor activities, travelling and relaxing. It's located nearby restaurants, watersports center and local fishers village.
    We are located in Pwani Mchangani, close to restaurants, local villages and watersports center.
  • Excellent Place, Prisca was amazing, very helpful (with much hospitality). We enjoyed our experience at Marco's place. The price is worth it, though the shops & supermarkets were far which would require a taxi always. Otherwise I would definitely recommend the place.

    Charles Eloi2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Surfescape is a beautiful place. The room are simple but nice, the people working are really kind and the location is perfect; 1 min from a beautiful large and white beach! You can eat every meal at the hotel just under Surfescape and relax at their swimming pool too! It’s a little paradise and perfect if you want to relax or do some kitesurfing !

    Lisa2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great apartment, very well located, location and just beautiful!

    Penda2019-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • Surfescape is a really nice place to stay. Hospitality was amazing thanks to Prisca, and Marco was very quick responding to all of our queries. The room is nice (big bed with mosquito net) and the sorroundings are beautiful. Only downside of it is that the only restaurant nearby is a buffet attached to Surfescape. I’d definitely recommend to order delivery from Blue Fish instead for original Swahili food. Thanks Prisca and Marco!

    Georgina2019-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • a great place to relax. superfriendly hosts. we stayed for two weeks. we mostly ate at waikiki and jetty lounge (20min walking on the beach) but got other great recomendations from Marco and the crew whenever we asked. 50m approx to the beach which was a private part before the public one. we quickly got aqquinted to the rhytm of the tide. the pool next door was a great substitute to the withdrawn ocean for cooling down. for lunch we either made our own from groceries from a supermarket nearby. you can shop there for example either by making an order to the reception, grabbing a taxi or doing it on your way to an excursion. it seemed to be 5$ one way, the same for going to restaurants. we absolutly recommend Surfescape, Marco,Nici and Priska whom helped make our trip fantastic. thank you guys for that. we will be back. lots of love, Emma-Lisa and William

    William2019-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • My 15-year-old son and me had a great time at „surfescape.“ Marco and his crew are very friendly and ready to answer any question. We had a relaxed time there which was nice after traveling a lot on the mainland/Tanzania. So for us it was „relax-escape.“ Asante sana!

    Katarina2018-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • With Marcos Surfescape you find a small, calm idyll on probably the best beach in whole sansibar. It has ebb and flow which makes it perfect for either swimming, surfing kiting or a beautiful walk at the tideland where you can discover a lot of different sea animals like star fishes etc. The Surfescape is not surving food but so you can discover all the restaurants around (eiher local or from the resorts). For us it was the perfect deal! We highly recommend!

    Lennard2018-07-25T00:00:00Z

    Welcome to Miramont Retreat Zanzibar! Our place is situated next to the beach, close to Mnemba Island. Here on Airbnb we rent the standard bungalows. The rooms have queen beds, fan, private toilet with shower, hot and cold water, linens, towels, body soap and private terrace with pool view. The location has free parking, a restaurant and bar. For Wi-Fi we charge 2$ per day. Breakfast included in the room rate and it's possible to arrange transfer from any part of the island
  • What a wonderful holiday in paradise! Miramont retreat is a simple magical place to stay located in a very quiet but beautiful part of Zanzibar. I stayed here for ten nights with my boyfriend and 21 month of son and we had a wonderful holiday , the staff where kind and helpful and the location is perfect if you are just looking to get away from it all ❤️ the pool is perfect for a dip at anytime of the day and the beach has the finest whitest sand I have ever seen. Here at miramont you really can relax in a chilled atmosphere with the most amazing food we only ate out once and not because there are not many other places to eat nearby but because we really enjoyed the fixed menu plus the daily menu that was offered everyday. The room was small but we only used it to sleep and shower and we even added a cot to the standard room, we wasn’t expecting a five star experience but I can honestly say that we had one and can’t wait to visit again. A big thank you to all of the staff that made our stay so special ❤️

    Leeann2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay. Everyone was accommodating, the staff were so helpful, food was good, and good vibes all around. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

    Zoë2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • I love this place. Bungalows are clean and comfortable. Staff always smiling and helpful. Beautiful garden around pool. Ocean at your fingertips <3 Definitely recommended for couples and solo travelers. In the evenings you will not be bored. You can join a bonfire on the beach or watch the performances of local artists. ;)

    Hania2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, small and well thought out facility. It felt like being in a green oasis, with a pool and a meet right outside. Super friendly staff, we felt very comfortable! The food is outstanding, reasonably priced and a new daily menu every day. Highly Recommended!

    Christine2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great accomodation for a small Budget.

    Katharina2019-09-27T00:00:00Z

  • The room was exactly what we needed. A very fair price for a perfect location. Our room’s front porch led directly onto the beach. There were many restaurants around. Our host was excellent. They helped us set up a snorkelling trip and transportation to Stone Town afterwards. He was easy to access and gave us helpful tips on the local area. Would definitely stay again!

    Tarquin2019-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to stay. Dead close to the beach, everything as advertised, and friendly and helpful local information. The chaps at the bar across the way are amazing, and we had a fantastic time in Nungwi. Thoroughly recommend this host.

    Simba Beach is right on the beach with a very chilled and comfortable atmosphere! You feel like at "home". The rooms are clean, simple equipped but very comfortable, you can see the sunrise and the ocean from your window! Just one step out of your door and you are walking on a fine and white coral sand! Enjoy the real Zanzibar life with us!!! KARIBUNI SANA
    SIMBA BEACH is an alternative way of being a tourist in this magic equatorial island. Simba Beach is a charming guest house right on Kiwengwa beach on the east coast of the island. It is about 50 km from the airport and the capital Stone Town. It is easily reached with about 50 minutes to transfer on paved roads. 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.
  • Very nice and calm place to chill out and to have nice long walks on the beach. Very clean and well organized, great Italian food to taste!

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.

    Martin2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • The best stay on Kiwengwa! It's paradise and feels like home. Peacefull and safe. I just added 4 more days and I really love the resort.

    Angela2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Marco's place was beautiful and the staff at check in were very friendly and welcoming. Our room was very close to the beach and having access to the neighboring resort was a definite bonus. The only downside we found was that the remote location, although beautiful, meant we were very limited for activities and food options. The only restaurant nearby was at the neighboring resort and the food seemed a bit expensive.

    Kaitlin2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Recommended accommodation. Friendly and nice communication. Help with the organization of excursions.

    Markus2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • This place is magical. The bungalows are spacious, the setting idyllic and the staff so helpful and friendly. It is next to the sea and guests can also make use of the next door’s resort’s swimming pool (for free) and eat at the buffet for a reasonable price. I highly recommend it! We are definitely coming back. We have swam with wild dolphins and visited a Mangrove swamp (both trips organised by the staff at Surfescape). It has been such a fantastic experience. Natalie, UK

    Natalie2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • This place is really beautiful, the staff is so helpful, especially Prisca :) She was always there when you need her. The Bungalow has a great size The way to the beach is quite short and you can use the pool from the Resort next to it. Would definitely come back

  • This is a great option for budget travelers who want to get away from the crowds. The room is very basic and clean. Ashery is a nice guy and helpful host. I stayed at his place in his first month of hosting at this location and he is adding new features as he goes. Only feature I was desiring was a mosquito net but he may be adding one soon and he did provide mosquito repellent. I would stay here again.

    Welcome to Surfescape Zanzibar, a place for flip flops and board shorts only (or bikinis!). My place is close to nightlife and public transport. Comfy bed, the coziness, the views, the surf atmosphere and the Zanzibarian style, that's what makes my place unique. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), big backpackers groups, volunteers, expats, surfers and surfers wanna be!
    The two bedroom suite is basically a very large studio separated by a wall. It’s perfect for families with kids or group of friends that would like to have some privacy without having to book another room. This accommodation has two large double beds, mosquito nets, fans and private bathroom. There is also a kettle for hot tea or coffee.
    We are located in Pwani Mchangani, close to restaurants, local villages and watersports center.
  • Great stay in Surfescape !! Warm welcome and extra Prisca !! Thanks again to her! The rooms are spacious and well equipped. The sea view is top! It is better to be motorized by the place a little isolated. We enjoyed the pool coral reef, the meals and breakfasts are average ... but it did not take away the charm of the place. We are delighted and recommend Surfescape!

    Sandrine2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Marco’s place. Brisca was really helpful and fun to be around. The place was beautiful and clean. There’s not a lot going on in Pani Mchangani, but it’s the right place if you’re looking for a couple of relaxing days.

    Julia2019-03-29T00:00:00Z

  • What a beautiful and tranquil place! We loved it!!! We came from Stonetown and it was such a relief to have a quiet place without hordes of people selling tours and trinkets. Illy greeted us so kindly upon arrival. Marco and Nikki were also so friendly and gave us each a free coconut from their tree! Their garden is beautiful and the sand paths are so comfortable- we didn’t wear shoes the whole time we were there. The reef is a little far from the beach and the tide fluctuates a lot so it makes things interesting. The sand is soft white and goes offshore for quite a ways and shallow- great for small kids. The water is crystal clear. It is a little isolated which is great for peace and quiet (our priority) but can make food a little challenging. However, Blue fish restaurant was wonderful! only a 20 minute walk. The mnemba snorkel trip was phenomenal and we even got to swim with dolphins! We had a WONDERFUL time at surfescape and are very thankful for Marco, Nikki, and illy!

  • Beautiful and unique places. A superb welcome and a team at the top. Marco and his wife are very accommodating.I recommend.Hakunamata !!

  • This is a very nice small place in a very much curated flourishing garden and green lawns on a high hill over the ocean with a tiny private beach 30 meters downhill (copletely private in high tide only). Best for kite-surfing fanatics, they would be totally happy with the conditions and special sevices for them - beachboys are eager to help with the kite, experienced athlets are eager to give you some private lessons. You can rent equipment (RRD kites, windsurfs and boards, everything). Low tides could be the only problem for kiters, but the time of it changes every day. There are only 6 suites (rooms) in this place. We weren't very lucky with our room - it was the only one with 2 separate bedrooms (we traveled with 2 small kids of 9 and 4), but our room and bathroom was very dark and exhausted.... And we had no terrace table as other suites had. Other rooms are much nicer and have a dining table an 2 private chaiselounge near the door. But don't expect too much)) everything is very ascetic. The main disatvantage is that you always need a taxi or the car to move to the closest grocery store or a restaurant. And those local taxidrivers make you mad with anger somtimes) The Surfescape is not B&B, so you dont get any breakfast, but some rooms have a tiny kitchenette)) our room didn't have any, unfortunately, but we had an electric kettle and cups. The main advantage - Marco and his girlfriend Niki are very helpfull! You get all info you may need: they tell you where to go on the island and how much to pay, they order you taxi and rent you a car, give you advice that you may need. All the stuff is very friendly and staying at Marco"s Surfescape undoubtfully makes you feel staying at home like in a real family! That's amaising. We enjoyed our stay but would try a different place when next time in Zanzibar

  • Perfect location

  • 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.

    Wake up on the waterfront of the Indian ocean and a hot cup of coffee. Ocean to mouth eating fresh calamari-fish-crab, kayak to an island, watch sunsets, moon rises, bonfire evenings at waterfront restaurant/lounge. Lazy hammock days, rustic luxurious peaceful living, 6 star meals, close to Kendwa or Nungwi. Welcome all travelers, families, couples, volunteers. We are eco solar powered! IF YOUR DATES ARE N/A please contact us we have extra rooms.
    We are on the north west coast of Unguja island of Zanzibar, we are fortunate not yet to have power so our place is very peaceful and we have solar power. We have a unique relationship with the village of Kidoti which is 15 minute walk up the hill, many villagers pass by to get to the ocean where they harvest crab, mussels, seaweed. As well a fisherman’s local port is just down from us making it easy to get great fresh fish and sometimes lobster. We always have a sunset! And different times of the month you can see the moon rise. And starry nights are abundant!
  • By far one of the best stays of my life! Mwamba and his crew were super helpfull and willing to help with everything during our stay. I gurantee that the small paradise he has created will provide a sensation of tranquility and serenity to anyone who is lucky enough to stay here! Hospitality, food, vibes and location are near perfection! Words do not come close to describe this hidden gem of zanzibar.

    Giannis2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • We really loved our stay at Kidoti Wild Garden. I won't forget the staff that went the extra mile for us and with such kindness. The place itself is an oasis where you can relax and rediscover yourself. Plenty of activities to do around the place and lots of exploration. The food was extraordinary, good prices with the best breakfast on the entire island. Thank you very much Mwamba &everybody at Kidoti for making our stay memorable! Andreea&Claudiu

    Claudiu2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • The 5 days I spent in Zanzibar, this is the only place where I felt truly relaxed and in paradise. Polyana and Mwamba have a beautiful home here, lovely hosts and I cannot recommend this place highly enough! Some taxi drivers get lost or a bit difficult about driving to the house but it’s worth it when you get there. My only regret is that I couldn’t stay longer!

    Catherine2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you, Kidoti Wild Garden for a memorable stay. The staff ( specially Sup) is more than excellent! I will suggest a stay at Kidoti Wild Garden to all my friends. The food was out of this world and the price very reasonable. Thank you for 5 superb days of just relax and enjoy nature.

    Annetjie2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • The place is wonderful, pure chill and good sea, absolutely peaceful. Food is also great and Mr Mwamba is a master of good vibes, hope to come back soon!!

    Silvio2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is a delightful location .... the landscape changes every minute of the day .... from marshland to sea. It’s fascinating just to sit and watch. I love it that Zanzibar for the most part (here too), seems devoid of mosquitos ! Be prepared for the heat - same all over the island. Hard to sleep at night but the beautiful days make up for that. This is an authentic ... less touristed spot.

    Penny2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • A very big thank you to Mwamba, Sarpally and the wonderful ladies who made us feel so welcome (especially after a 24 hour journey from Australia). The amenities and room are as described, but the shared spaces to lay in a hammock or watch the sunset with dinner far exceeded our expectations from the photos. The kayak to the island was a real highlight as was the food. The food was fresh and delicious. Mwamba was very helpful in organising excursions to go snorkelling and to a spice farm and also very helpful in explaining how to get the dalla dalla to Nungwi. Will definitely stay here again if we are lucky enough to come back to Zanzibar.

    Andrew2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Polyana & Mwamba's place is a little oasis. We loved our stay there!! Awesome hospitality, incredible fresh seafood, lovely relaxed waterfront location, and georgous puppy dogs and kitties...what more could you ask for!! Highly recommend for those looking for an authentic, relaxing Zanzibar experience. They can also organise day trips, and pickups/dropoffs at very reasonable prices. We did a snorkelling trip to Mnemba Island which was fantastic!!

    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. Super catering absolutely great location. Thank you for everything It is a place in paradise here in Zanzibar. I am very grateful for everything. Tim & Joyce are highly recommended as superhosts.

    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!

  • 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.

  • We travel on our own and in my memory there were not many such numbers (from the budget segment)) Great location !! The bungalow is located on a hill, which gives a gorgeous view of the ocean at any time☺

    Viktoriya2019-11-14T00:00:00Z

  • An excellent room with a kitchen, a view from the terrace to the ocean, sunbeds near the room, the ability to use the pool and the services of a large hotel, of which, probably, when Surfescape was once. The ocean is amazing, warm, its own beach. I was pleased with the opportunity to order products in the room - all that the soul wishes for a small amount of delivery. The large hotel has massage services, weaving braids, etc., if anyone needs it) Surfescape has an inexpensive laundry service. You can always find out and ask Prisca for everything you need, it’s wonderful and funny) here you can order excursions and taxis. The prices are reasonable, as agreed) we enjoyed the rest without any problems!)

    Alyona2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • As on the rest of Zanzibar, there are sometimes problems with electricity outages. Also the Wifi sometimes worked and sometimes not.

  • This accommodation was just amazing! Thank you Prisca for your warm welcome and the great service during our stay. If you like to cook for yourself, go for the room with the kitchen, you’ll find everything you need to cook some meals. The supermarket is not far (3km), but don’t expect local prices..., they’ll charge rather high prices. The room will be cleaned everyday and they provide a great service booking tours and taxi for a fair price! Wifi is a bit slow, enough to check Whatsapp etc. We‘ve spent 8 nights at this awesome place and will definitely return in case we visit Zanzibar again. Cheers, Sue&Lukas - check out „stracks_adventure“ on instagram for pictures.

Ps: we left our lovely cats over there, they come to room 131 to get some food. if you see them, please give them a little bit of tuna and be friendly, they just want a little but love, even cats in Zanzibar are nice ❤️🙏🏽

    Mambo! Thank you for your interest in Lazy Beach House. We are a simple but cosy beach house right on the white sands of the beautiful Kiwengwa beach. Our house has 5 rooms, all en-suite and ocean facing with their own private balconies. Perfect for those who really want to take a break from the hustle and bustle, connect with nature and the local culture, fall asleep to the sound of waves and relax in the sun during the day. We look forward to sharing our piece of paradise with you :)
    We have a chill out area upstairs, equipped with sea views, an honesty bar and great vibe that all guests can enjoy. We are so lucky to be positioned in front of a beautiful sand bank which allows us and our guests to enjoy the beach even during low tides!
    We are right on the edge of a wonderful community and the locals will make sure you feel right at home. If you are interested, you will also have the opportunity to experience local meals and explore the village and local school to learn more about this amazingly welcoming community and their culture
  • I really enjoyed my stay at Lazy Beach House. It’s tucked in next to a village and between a few resorts. A 2 minute walk at most to the beach. White sand beach and an amazing restaurant across the street. The house is wonderful, with comfy seating, a hammock, and a fridge to purchase cool drinks. I would stay again!

    Sarah2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • So, if you are searching for a place to stay, be lazy, eat local food next door, feel at home, enjoy the seaview and the beach and would like some insights in local Zanzibar life: go to lazy beach house! Sarah, MC, Ibro are very friendly, helpful and welcoming! A lot of guest are coming every year, that says enough!

    Erik2019-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place for a quiet vacation in Zanzibar. You're quite away from big hotels etc and all the team is super friendly. Definitely a valuable choice.

    Le Pêcheur2019-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • I had the best time at the Lazy Beach house. Great hospitality, Andrea and her team will do the outmost to make your stay pleasant. The location is perfect, the beach great. The room big and clean, bed very comfortable. Best value possible! I would come back tomorrow if I could!

    Herwig2018-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lazy Beach House was amazing. It has a more local vibe than the resorts further down the beach so if this is what you’re looking for I highly recommend. Quaint and comfortable. Andrea’s staff was probably our favourite part, they are all so welcoming and hilarious. The Amour restaurant is delicious as well, best food we had during our stay.

    Alexandra2018-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very nice and lazy stay in Kiwengwa next to the beautiful beach though it was a little bit windy sometimes. Ibro was very nice and helpful, he organized tours and transfer for us. It is a very quiet place, we always had dinner in one restaurant, but the food was good and the service - thanks to Coco - great. Go there!

    Jakob2017-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at lazy beach house was very nice. Andrea is a great and helpful host. She takes care about every question you have. If you look for a silent and lazy location at kiwengwa - the lazy beach house is your place to be.

    Sebastian2017-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • I only spent one night but it was great. The small building is at the end of the village so very quiet. The room was large and clean, with a reasonably comfortable mattress and super crisp white sheets. Andrea is a great host, welcoming and easy to communicate with. Stay here fo off the grid time (though there is Wi-Fi i)) you must)

    Welcome! Only 10 meters away from the beautiful Indian Ocean you will feel at home at Villa Happiness, or, as we say in Zanzibar, "Furaha". Enjoy your own little piece of paradise, along one of the most beautiful beaches of Zanzibar. Wees welkom! Voel je thuis in Villa Furaha, wat niet voor niets "blijheid & geluk" betekent in het Swahili. Gelegen op slechts 10 meter van het strand aan de Indische Oceaan. Geniet van je eigen stukje paradijs op een van de mooiste stranden van Zanzibar.
    Villa Furaha is part of a group of 5 bungalows, build around a swimmingpool. This group of bungalows together are named "Residence Paradise". Each bungalow is a private house, with it's own entrance and private outside sitting area. The only shared area is the garden and swimmingpool. Villa Furaha ligt samen met 4 andere bungalows aan een gedeeld zwembad aan het strand van Kiwengwa. Je huurt de bungalow en buitenruimte helemaal voor jezelf en deelt enkel het zwembad.
    There are plenty of restaurants, shops & kiteschools within walking distance of the villa. In de omgeving van Furaha tref je op loopafstand diverse gezellige restaurants, winkeltjes & kitescholen.
  • You know that feeling when you arrive somewhere and everything in the photos was much nicer and bigger? this is definitely not the case here. The house is much nicer and bigger than we expected. It is equipped with everything you could wish for. we lacked nothing. we really really enjoyed our time there. Blanche is a super nice person and has always been open to our questions. She also helped us buy fish on the beach. It was the perfect stay for us. so if you want to go to Zanzibar, book this house. It is just PERFECT.

    Jennifer2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • We loved everything about Blanche’s place. 10 secs from the beach, 5-10 min walk from restaurants, spacious apartment, nice pool... I could keep on going. We bought a lot of stuff at the market in Stone Town and had a lot of fun cooking Zanzibari dishes - all amenities are present so definitely recommend doing that! Blanche was an awesome host - the communication before, during and after was really great, timely and helpful — and she did a very thorough checkin with us that was very helpful as well. All in all - don’t think twice about booking Blanche’s place if you find yourself on Zanzibar!

  • If you are looking for the perfect place to stay in Zanzibar - look no further! We have just come back from a two week stay in Villa Furaha and have had the most incredible time. Blanche is lovely and the perfect host - incredibly responsive in the lead up to our trip and constantly on hand during our stay. Blanche was able to answer all our questions and organised many day trips and bookings for us, her recommendations were all superb. Erick is a fantastic guy, and a brilliant and informative driver - he took us to many places including Mnemba (for snorkelling), Pongwe (for The Island Lodge for lunch, jumbo prawns and lobster pasta our favourite food of the trip), Tangawizi Spice Farm and Stone Town (great day and night markets, also visit Africa House for the best sunset drinks). Erick was able to advise on the best things to do and see and also helped us to get the best deal at the markets for fruit and veg which was very helpful and kind. Such a bonus having the house cleaned everyday by Awa too. The villa is literally a stone’s throw from the beach, and has a shared pool which was a lovely way to cool off at the end of each day. There are many restaurants on Kiwengwa beach - our favourites were Arena for lunch (the prawn and avocado salad is delicious) and Papaya (lobster and coconut rice), Il Pontile is also perfect for sundowners (and a 3 min walk from the villa along the beach). We can’t recommend Villa Furaha and Zanzibar highly enough and are already planning our next trip back! Thank you!

  • We had such a wonderful stay in Blanche’s beautiful bungalow. The design of the bungalow is so stylish and comfortable. Blanche was so sweet and helpful with everything. We enjoyed swimming in the pool, cooking in the kitchen and walk at the beautiful beach. All in all we had a perfect stay and beginning on our vacation. Sara & Joseph

  • Very beautiful lodge in a very beautiful place, the Host Blanche is very kind and she help you with everything you need, I apreciated a lot her service.

    Denny2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Communication during booking was excellent and Blanche had an answer to every question we had. The villa lies in a bit quiet part of Kiwengwa direct at the beach. It is very clean and good maintained. Blanche was very good available for help and advice during our stay. Also the driver Erick is someone you can trust. Drives carefully and is available for help or advice. Be aware of the fact that this isn’t a resort but a villa amongst local zanzibar people. Oh, and Good to know is that there is no ATM around so make sure you have enough cash with you when you come. We were proud to be the first Dutch visitors, and can recommend it to everybody! Thank you Blanche and hopefully we’ll meet again!

  • The space is gorgeous and super clean! There is an in house cleaning lady that comes every day. She is very polite and leaves everything super clean. There is also a gardener who enters the gate and premises at different times throughout the day- so don’t be alarmed. The host, Blanche, is great with communication and recommendations. She was even great about helping us get a few items for our space on our arrival day. Erick, the driver, was awesome as well!! We used his services for transfer from and to the ferry. He is great with pointing out certain things that are good to know about the island. He too was very kind. The pool is shared with neighboring residents- as mentioned by Blanche. The neighbors are private and respect your space. The outdoor space is nice and relaxing. Blanche’s space is exactly as described. Kawengwa Beach is nice and there are some good places to eat. The tide is something that we’ve never experienced before. Low tide starts at night and it’s almost as through the ocean itself disappears far out until about 3. Not sure if this is a natural occurrence during winter only- but it is something to keep in mind for September. The weather was spectacular!!! We truly enjoyed Papaya and the restaurant next door. Drinks on the pier were good too and offer a spectacular view. Heads up for The ”Beach Boys” trying to make some money- they can be pretty persistent. However, they are all friendly and trying to receive your support . We enjoyed several activities such as snorkeling, prison island, swimming with turtles and the spice tour. Most things are about 45 min- an hour away. We highly recommend exploring the island. We loved Zanzibar and we will most definitely be back to this beautiful island.

    Four bungalows situated in a stunning peaceful location just behind the famous tropical Nungwi beach. Each bungalow has it's own private terrace and is located in our stunning gardens. We are just a minutes walk from the warm turquoise Indian ocean!
    Our gorgeous beach bungalows are situated just back from the world famous Nungwi beach, and yet you can still hear the sea. The beach is just a minute walk away through our tropical garden and takes less than a minute to reach. Our bungalows are spacious and clean and have a king size bed, which has a safe underneath for your valuables for peace of mind. There is an en-suite bathroom with a shower, and towels are included. Each bungalow has its own private terrace where we serve you breakfast which is included in the rates. We only have four bungalows on our site which guarantees peace, tranquility and privacy. Our bungalows are perfect for families as well as romantic get aways. It is however possible to book all four bungalows for large family holidays or special occasions. We have a 24 hour reception where you can purchase cold sodas, beer or tea and coffee anytime. Our on site manager speaks very good English and is always on hand to answer any queries. We are also able to offer you advice and information on the many and varied excursions available on Zanzibar and are happy to signpost you to reputable excursion agencies. We have our own sea water aquarium on our site and our guests are able to swim with the turtles when ever they like. At present we are the only place in Zanzibar where this is possible. Our turtles are often brought to us after they have been caught in fisherman's nets and have been injured, and once they reach a certain size we release them back into the ocean. There are many wonderful places to eat close to our bungalows, mainly located along the stunning beach. Our local fisherman pride themselves on their catch of various fish and lobster, and you won't find fresher fish anywhere than in our local restaurants! All of our bungalows have mosquito window nets as well as bed nets
    The neighbourhood is extremely safe. Obviously we suggest that guests use their common sense when visiting areas where poverty exists. We would advise to not walk alone at night, especially if carrying an expensive camera or other valuables! The people here are very friendly and are used to tourists. if you show you respect, you will get a very warm welcome. Zanzibar is predominantly a muslim area and so we suggest women keep their shoulders covered when not at the beach. We also suggest to ask the locals before taking photos. It is a good idea to offer the children or locals something in exchange for taking photos, for example, pens, soda's or a few hundred shillings etc.
  • Good location. Breakfast was great! It was fun swimming with the turtles. The room had a mini fridge which we thought it was nice asset. One morning we were out of water, other than that, the place was good. Would stay again.

    Gaby2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great hospitality and great location! Would recommend.

    Samuel2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • I really liked this accommodation, it is so peaceful. It’s like a big garden with a lot of animals (of course the turtles) in the middle of Nungwi. The breakfast you get every morning on your own balcony is really delicious. They even got a restaurant, you could eat it there too, the prices are fair. The bed is comfy, the bathroom is bigger than expected. I can definitely recommend it. Greets Monika

    Monika2019-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great affordable place and helpful hosts. The location is a bit from everything else going on in Nungwi.

    Kaitlyn2019-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for the hospitality, the friendliness and amazing sea turtles accessible 24/7 . I really appreciated the peace and quiet away from the Nungwi buzz... but close enough (about 15 min walk) should one wish to mingle with other tourists. Once the restaurant is fully fledged - I think Baraka potentially can be an ideal nook to hide away in the "touristy" Nugwi beach.

    Ndumiso2018-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great location! Room are really clean and huge! The turtles aquarium was amazing! Better knowing that To reach the best beaches its about 20 mins walk from this place but it's really nice to do even by night!

    Sarah2017-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • great place!

    Eugenia2017-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my boyfriend stayed in one of the bungalows for 2 weeks and it was totally perfect for us. Before our journey the communication was easy - the guys from baraka aquarium answered always really quickly! The bungalows are set less than a 5 minutes walk away from the beach but a little bit far away from all restaurants, bars. But for us this was perfect because as a result it was always really quiet there. In about 20 minutes beach walk you can get to the "main beach" area with restaurants etc..The whole area around the 4 bungalows is really nice and green with lots of plants. The bungalow is quiet big with a really comfortable bed and has been cleaned every third day. Breakfast on our own terrasse was every day almost the same but with lots of fresh fruits, bread and eggs-yummi! All of the persons working there are really friendly and helped us with organising trips or with other issues. Unfortunately we didnt have always warm water in the shower- but it was so hot outside that this was not a big problem... :). I really recommend this place - we felt really comfortable there!

    Kendwa is the best location in Zanzibar - the beach is absolutely amazing and always perfect for a swim (it doesn’t matter if the tide is high or low), the sunset is always spectacular and there are lots of options of restaurants and shops in the area. Wambaa Garden is located just a short walk to the beach (10 minutes), close to some of the most famous hotels in the area: Zuri, Kendwa Rocks and Sunset. The North Valley International Hospital is just across the road from us and there are some local grocery shops on the road.
  • AC ( air-conditioner) available and working fine. Internet available working fine security guards on premise very clean house great location and a big plus breakfast every morning hence my five stars loved it !!

    Serges2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • What a little gold mine of a place. The location is so perfect and close to the beach. The place was a nice size clean and looked after, i really liked the whole vibe of the space. Th unit had an aircon and a fan, breakfast was delicious and the service was really great and caring, such friendly people. i really felt that clay and Yolanda went the extra mile in small things that could be just pushed off or missed by a host. I recommend this space and will definitely stay there again.

    Gilad2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Comfortable and conveniently located place to stay in beautiful Kendwa - probably the most beautiful beach and best swimming on the island. Very secure property with friendly hosts. The accommodation is recently renovated with all paint and fixtures appearing new. It is great value for money and we would happily stay again next time we come to Zanzibar.

    Kristen2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Before going I was told that the AC won’t work and the internet won’t work. Mainly because this is Africa, but most of the time it was brilliant. The hospitality was great and the fresh fruit and helpfulness was appreciated. We would stay there again!

    Ben2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • A nice place for a short stay. Beach is about 10min away. Only issues is the internet connection in this area, which is fee-based. Otherwise very welcoming hosts.

    Estin2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Iolanda's place was excellent! Her and her husband Clay were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. A short walk (around 10 minutes) to a beautiful and popular beach which restaurants and activities to indulge in within the area. Thank you!!

    Tom2019-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • Lolanda is a great host and the location is perfect! Quiet and only a few minutes from the beach

    Jesse2019-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent accommodation, consists of one room with kitchen and a large bathroom. All new, minimal set of dishes, there is a small fridge freezer. One person is fine, I liked everything, I don’t have enough space for me. Since this is the first floor you need to be ready for the arrival of lizards, spiders and some kind of beetles. I was visited by a lizard))), we made friends with her))), I killed spiders and bugs with a sneaker, many small ants, but if you do not leave food, they will not come, and if they come then they died from Dichlorvos in one puff. About 10-15 minutes walk to the beach, the best beach in Zanzibar, in Nungwi is terrible compared to Kendwa (I went there every day from idleness and made conclusions). My personal opinion is: since I hate to rest in close proximity with Russian tourists and generally a large gathering of people, then Yolanda’s house is just a super place))) It was a great vacation in a beautiful place, I recommend it to everyone!

    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!
  • Great place, perfect location, very clean, very private and quiet. Gail was a great host. Adnan was very helpful with shopping for us. Bread , eggs,fruit and milk available in plenty thanks to the host. The pool was great. The beach was amazing and almost empty when we were there. We had an amazing stay. Thanks Gail.

    Loise2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

  • Let me start by saying that Simone’s place is beyond what is listed!!! The pictures do not do it justice!! This is the place you want to be if you want a quiet place with amazing sunrises, this is the place for you!! This front beach house has amazing views, can easily accommodate a family of group of 10 with such comfortable beds. The staff that Simone has there are amazing!! Monei who is the main housekeeper was more than that! She not only was able to run a quick grocery errand when we first got there, but she made sure to get us anything we needed or pointed us to the right direction such when to get fresh fish from the local fishermen. We only had Chef Rajabu cook us daily breakfast (which is included by the way) as we cooked the rest of our daily meals during our stay but his breakfast was always awesome and very filling! The house was cleaned daily; each room has a very functioning AC which is a must as temperatures there can be in the 80s-90s with high humidity. I also want to mention Idrissa the driver who not only drove us to Stone Town but acted as our tour guide that day. He is very professional but also friendly. Overall, I would highly recommend this place and will definitely stay here when back in Zanzibar!!!

    Chantal2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • All you could read on the details from Simone, you could expect it even better!! Him and his team are so professional and so kind!! No need to say more just live it!

    Chris2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • First off the villa was absolutely gorgeous. Wonderful location- couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing spot. Second, Simone has been nothing short of spectacular as a host. His suggestions on where to eat and where not to go were instrumental to our wonderful experience in Zanzibar. He arranged everything and was a very hands on host. This may have been our best Airbnb experience ever. Thank you Simone for opening up your beautiful villa to us. We will never forget the experience and wonderful stay!

    Sheryl2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • A piece of heaven is an understanding to what this accommodation has to offer. Apart from its breathtaking views through out the day, the private cook, cleaner, and manager make sure that your stay is perfect. Simone knows the best restaurants in the area which were beyond amazing. Thanks again Simone!

    AbdulRahman2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • One of our best vacation EVER!! Me and my family stayed on Amani House for 14 days, everything was perfect. The house is located on the best spot of the island and for SURE is the best property in Zanzibar. The beach is a paradise . Elena was the best concierge ever, she is so nice and knows everything about the island providing the best tips you can have. If you stay in Amani house you can spend the day in Melia ( just few steps from the property) with all included (meals also) for just 50$/ person. The breakfast and meals we had in the house made by the chef were delicious. Fhami takes care of any problem you may have in the house as we did not have any, he just become our good friend always taking a good care of us. We also had a wonderful massage provided by Miriam at home. Our girls had the hair done with tipical braids (also made at home). All our tours and booking, including a SAFARi ( Crater, Ngorongoro and Serengeti) was provide by Simone and Elena. Thank you guys!! What an incredible days we had ❤️❤️❤️ Already counting the days to return.

    Vera2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was perfect! The apartment is very comfortable and the access to the beautiful beach is a real bonus. In addition all the people who provide the service made our stay so much simpler: breakfast in the morning; organization of outings and transfers and visits ... a special thank you to Elena who knew. Meet all our desires with good humor and extraordinary availability. Discovering Zanzibar in these conditions is idyllic !!

    Beatrice2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had an incredible time at Simone's place in Kiwengwa! The house is literally on the beach and is the most peaceful and relaxing place I have been. The house is beautiful with many touches and such comfortable beds and furniture. We loved the staff who was very kind, friendly and always around if you needed anything. This is a perfect place if you want to unplug and chill, and that beach is out of a dream! Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

    Bhawin2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing appartment by the beach. The place is very stylish and you cannot beat the location by the beach but still feel cosy and intimate. Elena and Simone have been great hosts, very responsive!

    La Savannah is a small, self contained house located only 10-15 minutes walk from beautiful Nungwi beach. The private house features a double bed, sofa, small fridge, fan, wardrobe and a modern bathroom with a spacious shower.
    La Savannah was completed in November 2017, so the garden is not finished yet. The house is located near the village, and is close to both kiosks and local restaurants. There is also a local bar nearby, which sometimes play loud music even during night time.
  • I had a great stay at this place! Can recommend this to everyone who is looking for a budget-friendly place to stay at for some time in beautiful Nungwi. Elisabeth has responded very quickly to my messages and helped me organize some things like a taxi from and to the airport.

    Philipp2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • The only bad thing was the kitchen that wasn't clean, so cooking wasn't an option. For the rest everything good, Omy and his friends where really helpfull. About 10 minutes to the beach

    Christian2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Elisabeth’s place is heaven of Nungwi. It is so much better than it looks like. It’s very private, well organized kitchen with enough cutlery and a stove. They have enough toiletries and the area is so secured. It is close to everything you will need in Nungwi and all are in a stone throw distance. Omy was really helpful at all the time you need assistance and our stay was amazing and much fun than expected.

    Elizabeth And Dereck2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • This place is really nice for budget travelers. Just a 5 minute walk to the beach. Communication was very clear and fast except at the check-in it was a bit unclear how to get in. Recommended!

    Suzanne2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Just the place you want to be, right near Highland Bungalows where you can get WiFi and a swim in their pool if you just buy Lunch or something else there. Make sure to meet Anita at Highland Bungalows. Great person to talk to. Elizabeth's place is just perfect! Clean,spacious, secure, in a quiet place; walking distance to the road (DalaDala), Nungwi and Kendwa beach (depending on the tide). A few ongoing developments around the place mean that it won't be as affordable in near future. Use the opportunity! Thanks to Elisabeth

    Ariho2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • We were very well received by Elizabeth's friend, Omy, and one of their friends. They were very responsive to our needs and advised us for excursions. The accommodation is clean, well located. However, there is no kitchen equipment (sponge, plates, pans). We recommend this accommodation for the price, quality and great hospitality!

    Mégane2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Was a refreshing place to stay when you are backpacking. Clean and private. Duma was great for helping us book everything we needed. We got WiFi next door at Highland whenever we needed it.

    Alex2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely bungalow with everything you need at a great price, about 15 min walk to the beach, near lots of restaurants, local and touristy, wonderful hosts, made the check in and out process seamless, showed me around, took me out to eat and helped me catch a dala dala back to stone town! Would highly recommend this place!

  • communication was very good! I accidentally booked the wrong dates and recognized it maby two weeks before arrival. They helped me to change the booking and it was no problem. It has a very good AC and breakfast in front of the room is just great. All the stuff especially the taxi drivers are very helpful and kind. It's located perfectly 30sec from the beach.

    Linda2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Nice practical place. Good hosts.

    Christopher2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place in Nungwi. Its only about a 10 second walk to the beach. The room was very clean and had everything I needed for my stay in Zanzibar. Breakfast on the terrace is a nice touch. Stefania and Rama were very helpful with answering questions before I arrived and Amir was always there if I needed anything during my stay. I definitely recommend this place if you're staying in Nungwi.

    Ashton2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment has a very good location, 1 min walk to the beach. 30 min lovely walk to Kendwa beach and a few minutes walk to all good restaurants. Apartment was very clean with a daily room service. Staff were very very friendly to us. We recommend the Nungwi Beach Studio for sure for everyone, but take the apartments up, they are better :)

    Petra2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great place very close to the beach. The room is nice and clean and the lunch served on the bedroom terrace is really good. The staff is kind and welcoming.

    Zanzibar, Tanzania

    Wake up on the waterfront of the Indian ocean and a hot cup of coffee. Ocean to mouth eating fresh calamari-fish-crab, kayak to an island, watch sunsets, moon rises, bonfire evenings at waterfront restaurant/lounge. Lazy hammock days, rustic luxurious peaceful living, 6 star meals, close to Kendwa or Nungwi. Welcome all travelers, families, couples, volunteers. We are eco solar powered! IF YOUR DATES ARE N/A please contact us we have extra rooms.
    We are on the north west coast of Unguja island of Zanzibar, we are fortunate not yet to have power so our place is very peaceful and we have solar power. We have a unique relationship with the village of Kidoti which is 15 minute walk up the hill, many villagers pass by to get to the ocean where they harvest crab, mussels, seaweed. As well a fisherman’s local port is just down from us making it easy to get great fresh fish and sometimes lobster. We always have a sunset! And different times of the month you can see the moon rise. And starry nights are abundant!
  • Mwamba has created a beautiful space there! It was really relaxing and calm to stay at Wild Gardens.

    Lara2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place, very caring and kind staff

    Lino2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • An absolute gem! Probably one of few places in Zanzibar where you can enjoy both a sea side location, with perfect opportunities for swimming, kayaking etc., without being bothered by beach boys or hordes of tourists. Would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Zanzibar!

    Gustav2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • What incredible hosts. The few days we had spent here were some of the best days of all our travels over the past 10 years. We will definitely be going back.

  • An excellent location, quiet, you feel at home. The people here are very warm, the most beautiful people I have met in Africa. Thank you Sarp, Siti, Hawa, Babu for hospitality and all for hospitality. dearly this location

    Casey2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Kidoti Wild Garden is simply a wonderful place to get to know Zanzibar in all its beauty away from mass tourism. The bungalows are very simply furnished, but there is everything necessary. In the whole area is very much attention to detail and the staff is so warm and accommodating, you feel right at home. We preferred to make a day trip from Kidoti to Nungwi, as we enjoyed the tranquility and nature in Kidoti. The water is wonderful, you can rent a kayak on site for free and paddle to a nearby uninhabited island. At the end of the day at the campfire with reggae music with a Kilimanjaro beer under a starry sky to end the day, was our perfect idea of relaxation and vacation. We would go back anytime and would highly recommend anything about this place. Thanks!

  • Bodas compound is a quiet relaxing gem a little outside of Nungwi . It is on large grounds with beautiful gardens , and very safe. There is a well equipped kitchen for guest to use, his staff is very friendly and helpful . There is a friendly dog and 2 kitties around the house, which is fun. As a guest you have access, ( short walk ) to a pristine private beach, which beauty is beyond words. Boda is a great host, helpful to show you around and answer all the questions. We would definitely stay there again .

    Danielle2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in Zanzibar. Great location. A very responsive and caring owner who respects personal space, is unpleasant, and is always ready to help in any matter. Very clean area. The ability to cook in the summer kitchen.

    Natalia2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Eddie was already waiting for us when we arrived and showed us the important places (super beautiful private beach about 10-15 minutes walk and village center about 15 minutes). In the village there is a super simple and inexpensive restaurant with Zanzibar pizza. Eddie provided us with delicious bread every morning. We felt totally safe at all times. Running home in the dark wasn't a problem either (you only need a flashlight). Eddie was always available for all our questions and always answered everything great. It was a great stay and we really enjoyed the time. Hakuna matata! ✌

    Jennifer2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • The place is in good localization not far from the Nungwi center on the one hand and private beautifull beach on the other withich we had access thanks to Eddie. We came quite late and we were starving, Eddie took us for the meal in local bar (we asked for local food) which was good and in very resonable price. Eddie's hospitality was exquisite. He responded to all our questions always carred about our well-being and met our needs. The bungalows was like or even better than on the pictures. We even had coffee made by one of the local Chef's ;) Thank you one more time for the good time that we spent with You.

    Hanna2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • We were met with wonderful hospitality, Eddie really did his best so that we could enjoy our stay. On our first day we were greeted with homemade Chapati, and were shown around the village to get really good local tips. The private beach (10min walk) was just wonderful. We would definitely recommend a stay at his place to get a more local experience to be able to enjoy more out of your stay than just the typical poolexperience!

    Hanna2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is as described, Eddie is very welcoming. showed what and where is in Nungwi. 10 minutes magnificent private beach. Organized a transfer from the airport to our next vacation spot in Zanzibar. We did not regret at all that we stopped at this place

    Danil2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Eddie is a superhost, very good at what he provides. You will enjoy! The beach too is nothing less than amazing; you’ll have to discover for yourself. Meet the people, relax, swim... Issac, Makalelie and Chef Lolo are a bonus.

    Kristine2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in nungwi was amazing. Eddi is a fabulous host and showed us the surroundings with joy, helping us when needed. The accommodation was really nice and the private beach is just breathtaking. Perfect to dive into the ocean or even to just chill with a view.

    Nungwi, Zanzibar North Region, Tanzania

    With 10 minutes walk to the beach Mwambani Villa is the perfect accomodation option for families, friends and groups up to 8 people. Our Villa has a spacious livingroom, kitchen and 2 large ensuite bedrooms (each with double+ queen beds) decorated with traditional & modern african interior design (all rooms have roof-fans & both bedrooms have A/C). Our enormous rooftop terrace, large veranda & shared lush garden filled with tropical flowers, trees and hammocks offers lots of places to relax!
    The villa is placed in a big beautiful garden which is shared with another house and a bungalow that are rented to guests and a staff house.
    On the northern tip of Zanzibar Nungwi Village is located. Nungwi Beach has been named one of the top 10 best beaches in the world (we agree!), and it is the perfect spot to swim, relax, do watersports, eat lots of seafood and get to know the local culture.
  • Dullah is a very available host and he guided us well We discovered a lot of things with him on zanzibar In addition the villa is superb Large room, lots of space in a quiet and idyllic location Great stay We recommend without problem

    Christelle2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is a spacious Villa with a private chef, a full staff, and Dullah who goes out of his way to show you around the beaches and nightlife. Dullah acted as a personal guide to the beach. Easily the best hospitality I've ever experienced at an Airbnb. Cannot recommend this place any higher.

    Daniel2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice accommodation in the middle of a wonderful garden. Great and helpful family. Warm shower, large beds, breakfast in the garden.

    Lera2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in Nungwi/Zanzibar was really amazing and Dullah’s place & his team have been key elements to make this possible! The villa is perfectly equipped and decorated as well as the garden and the roof top is an incredible spot to enjoy sunrises and sunsets or just chill. The property is very well localised, 10 minutes walk from one of the best beaches, bars and restaurants. The team was very helpful and informed about best adresses, parties and other facilities. If we will ever be back there, we would definitely love to stay at Mwambani again!

    Vittoria2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place wish we could have had more time to enjoy the villa. Only had a day but felt like a real 5 star experience.

    Colt2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing! When we arrived we were shocked at how spacious it is, as there are two huge rooms with two large beds in each room and en suite restrooms. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the utensils you need if you decide to cook, but they also include breakfast and you can buy fresh juice and meals from their kitchen as well. The staff are all wonderful and very helpful, they even ran to the store for us to pick up the items we needed and helped us play a movie from the TV. The place is very safe and secure and the view from the rooftop is unmatched. The location is also just a short walk from the beach which is also very safe even late at night, and leads down to the most incredible beach in Nungwi that is clean and lined with fun shops and restaurants with rooftop bars that go out straight over the ocean. If we return to Nungwi, this will be our place!

    Rachel2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a special villa to stay! Run by a fantastic team who really care for their guests and cater for every need! Would highly recommend!

Questions were answered immediately and solutions were found straight away. My wife had to go to the hospital and Amir immediately took care of the transport and helped us a lot.

    Arthur2020-03-03T00:00:00Z

    Oona2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Get your room only with air conditioning, as the room without it could smell mold and high humidity. I recommend this hotel for the nice and friendly staff. It is necessary to pay attention to prices despite the friendly attitude of the locals.

    Dominika2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Wow ! This place is amazing!!! The friendliest staff I have ever met. Super clean. Right by the beach. But just back far enough to have some privacy. Breakfast was delicious. I really can’t say enough about how great everyone here is they made the trip for us!

  • Room looks better on the pictures than really is, but everything else was perfect. Amir, the manager come to us at 4AM to the airport and we could go in the room imideatly at night. He is really profesional and give us good tips and we talk about Zanzibar, great man. Simon prepare delicious breakfast every day and take us to local school. Room is only few meters from beach. I recommend this place. People around the property are very friendly.

    Carlina2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Located a few meters from the sea, the structure is externally pretty and simple. The spacious room turns out to be spartan but with everything you need. The bathroom is spacious with typical Zanzibar finishes (cheap and uncared for). The aesthetics might deserve 4 stars but the people who work there deserve more !!! Amir the manager has always been present and ready to help me for all my needs !!! In the days spent in Nungwi it has been my constant reference and thanks to his help I have solved more than one problem that happened to me. Thanks for everything!!!

    Elio2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Rama’s place is exactly how it was described. The space was simple, yet clean and located very conveniently by the beach and shops. The power went out twice during our stay but we heard that was pretty common for life on the island. It wasn’t an overbearing inconvenience. Rama and Amir were both quick to respond to my messages and everyone on their staff was very friendly. I would recommend Rama’s place to potential guests in the future.

    Carla2020-01-09T00:00:00Z

    Lorato Yvonne2019-05-08T00:00:00Z

    The bungalow can easily accommodate up to 4 guests so perfect for friends and families. It features large beds, en suite bathroom and common garden overlooking the ocean. Rooms belong to Surfescape Zanzibar, the kite and windsurf center located on the our private beach. Oh yes, we have fiber optic wi-fi connectivity :) There are different restaurant nearby + also food delivery!
    Given the high request of this bungalow on Airbnb I put a second one, the other listing have more than 150 positive reviews combined :)
    Close to a couple of beach restaurant, 20 meters from the beach, and Surfescape Watersport centre. It’s also close to Pwani Mchangani and Mafarasi (Kiwengwa) village.
  • Close to the beach, nice pool. We enjoyed our staying. Nice bedroom.

    Dimitri2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed a week at Marco's house. We were delighted with our stay! Marco and Prisca are very hospitable and available. The room was perfect: nice, clean, well equipped. The place is very cute. The access to the beach is direct from our room to a minute walk. In short we strongly recommend!

    Laure2019-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • Rooms were clean, it was a beautiful location, and the host was very welcoming and helpful. We were able to eat a very delicious dinner at the hotel next door. Would highly recommend.

    Meggie2019-06-08T00:00:00Z
  • The place is great and the staff is very helpful and friendly! You can have a good lunch/ dinner at the coral hotel next to Surfescape, where you can use the pool, too. We recommend to have a car, but taxi works well, too. They can organize it for you. Thanks for the stay!

    Mohammad2018-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was perfect :)

    Jana2018-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Everything about our stay at Surfescape was excellent. The bedroom was spacious. There was a stocked fridge and food tray of snacks (for a fee of course). There are sun beds and hammocks outside the room and by the beach. Priska was very helpful with our needs (taxi, motorbike rentals, laundry, party guide, etc.). Marco was very helpful and very accommodating as a host too. There’s a pool you can use at Coral Reef resort when the tide is out. Otherwise, its best to have a swim in the morning when the sea is calm. Only drawback is that the location is a bit of a walk to any supermarket or other hotel/restaurants. Though they can get food delivered to the resort anyway. All in all, it’s a highly recommended airbnb in Zanzibar.

    Sofia2018-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my boyfriend had a really great time at Surfescape. The location was one of the best we had on Zanzibar. The room was very well equipped (water cooker, fridge, plates, mugs etc.) and cleaned every day. The host and his staff were very nice and warmhearted which made our stay very comfortable. Also the area was very beautiful and peacefully quiet. The private beach was extremely welcomed and relaxing after more touristic spots like Nungwi etc. Only one thing you have to keep in mind when staying at Surfescape: The possibilities according to food are limited. It was not a problem at all, I'm only mentioning it. The next door restaurant offered a breakfast buffet for 7 dollars which was quite nice, as well as the evening dinner buffet. You can find a few other restaurants within some walking distance. Also we were offered to have food ordered (for example Pizza, pretty good for African Pizza) which worked out very well. So you're not going to starve when staying on Surfescape, I just wanted to mention the fact that the location is not as touristic as other places. But for us, who were looking forward to relaxation, peace and quiet, it was the perfect place to stay. I can strongly recommend spending some time at Surfescape! Thank you for everything.

    Julia2018-08-09T00:00:00Z

    Four bungalows situated in a stunning peaceful location just behind the famous tropical Nungwi beach. Each bungalow has it's own private terrace and is located in our stunning gardens. We are just a minutes walk from the warm turquoise Indian ocean!
    Our gorgeous beach bungalows are situated just back from the world famous Nungwi beach, and yet you can still hear the sea. The beach is just a minute walk away through our tropical garden and takes less than a minute to reach. Our bungalows are spacious and clean and have a king size bed, which has a safe underneath for your valuables for peace of mind. There is an en-suite bathroom with a shower, and towels are included. Each bungalow has its own private terrace where we serve you breakfast which is included in the rates. We only have four bungalows on our site which guarantees peace, tranquility and privacy. Our bungalows are perfect for families as well as romantic get aways. It is possible however to book all 4 bungalows if you wanted to book for a large family holiday or special occasion. We have a 24 hour reception where you can purchase cold sodas, beer or tea and coffee anytime. Our on site manager speaks very good English and is always on hand to answer any queries. We are also able to offer you advice and information on the many and varied excursions available on Zanzibar and are happy to signpost you to reputable excursion agencies. We have our own sea water aquarium on our site and our guests are able to swim with the turtles when ever they like. At present we are the only place in Zanzibar where this is possible. Our turtles are often brought to us after they have been caught in fisherman's nets and have been injured, and once they reach a certain size we release them back into the ocean. There are many wonderful places to eat close to our bungalows, mainly located along the stunning beach. Our local fisherman pride themselves on their catch of various fish and lobster, and you won't find fresher fish anywhere than in our local restaurants!
    The neighbourhood is extremely safe. Obviously we suggest that guests use their common sense when visiting areas where poverty exists. We would advise to not walk alone at night, especially if carrying an expensive camera or other valuables! The people here are very friendly and are used to tourists. if you show you respect, you will get a very warm welcome. Zanzibar is predominantly a muslim area and so we suggest women keep their shoulders covered when not at the beach. We also suggest to ask the locals before taking photos. It is a good idea to offer the children or locals something in exchange for taking photos, for example, pens, soda's or a few hundred shillings etc.
  • Nice place to be in North Zanzibar, next to the beach and nice tours in the recepcion.

  • We stayed 4 days at Baraka and we really relaxed. The bungalow is clean and well organized, the breakfast is very good. This part of the beach is rather quiet, away from resorts and tourist hotels. A little paradise! The staff is very welcoming and very friendly! Unbeatable value for money!

  • A very quiet and nice place with only 4 bungalows, 2 minutes from the beach and the turtle aquarium 2 steps. Back to repeat 100% secure. Breakfast also very good and complete.

  • Amazing!! My friend and I stayed at the beggining of our trip around Zanzibar for 5 nights. We had a warm welcome from all the staff. The place is clean and cosy. Breakfast served on your private terrace under the shadow of the trees. Staff was really helpful on all our requests. 1 minute walking from the beach on the less touristic and croudy area of Nungwi. We will come back soon. Thanks to Ahmed for this lovely stay!! Elisabeth & Pauline - Spain & France

  • I had a truly exceptional time in Zanzibar and staying at Baraka's Aquarium was part of it. The room and bathroom was perfect - hot water & pressure every day! Comfortable bed, great mosquito net, good ventilation. A treat after a few places where it was not the case. The breakfast was also incredible. Different fruits and fresh breads every day and delicious eggs. The location is perfect - very close from the beach and close to other places where you can spend time to relax and have a drink. The Turtle Aquarium is also a bonus! It is so nice to wake up and check up on them. I also had a swim with them (I was initially a little apprehensive) but I enjoyed it so very much! One of the bigger ones was happy for me to hang on to her and she was taking me around the pond. An amazing memory of my trip. I couldn't recommend more! I also have to say that I felt very safe. I am a single traveller and I could tell that they were making sure I was OK coming back at night.

  • We have arrived at night but the staff came to welcome us to show us our bungalow. We had a really good experience here in Baraka and the natural turtles aquarium is amasing. There are a lot of turtles, you can feed them and swim with them when this is high tide. The rooms are clean and the breakfast really good, with fruits, coffee, tea, and very good scrambled eggs by the way. What you can see on the picture is even better in reality. Nice place to stay if you want to visit the northern part of the island,

  • I cannot comment too much on Baraka Aquarium in itself. There was a misunderstanding and some complications with the Airbnb reservertation that made our arrival more complicated than previously though. However, Ahmed was incredibly helpful and provided us with another (more expensive!) room owned by the same owner. He even allowed us to go and swim with the turtles for free, even though we were not staying at the same room ! A very nice and appreciated gesture from his part !

  • A beautiful little bungalow located in the jungle near the beach! The pictures accurately reflect the accom, although perhaps undersell a bit - we were expecting it to be worse than it was! By far the highlight was the turtle aquarium. If for no other reason, this is why you MUST stay at baraka! Where else can you swim with rescued sea turtles while they are being rehabilitated before being returned to the ocean! The highlight of my Zanzibar stay!

  • Beautiful apartment close to Zanzibar beach with hosts who provide excellent services. Definitely would recommend booking with Carola & Mado.

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.

  • Carola & Mado’s place was great. It was super easy communicating with them, and they were really helpful with accommodating my late flight and arranging for my airport transfer. Their restaurant recommendations were quite good as well. A very lovely place in an amazingly relaxing setting.

    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! 😊

    Shanira2019-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay, and the owners will gladly help you out! Highly recommend.

  • Amazing location, amazing staff and room! We had a really good time being super close to the beach, having a nice breakfast in the morning and a good chat with the friendly staff. Highly recommended from both me and my boyfriend!

    Emma2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay. The location, staff and room was great. We really enjoyed the complimentary breakfast as well.

    Jon Arne2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • So happy with the hospitality. Rama was the best one to give the home feeling that you miss when you’re away for so long. It was near the beach and the staff could give you the best things and advices that you need.

    Amina2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly like shown in the pictures. Staff was extremely nice and the big included breakfast is delicious. The accommodation is right next to the beach, so great location. Host took care of the transfer for us which was great.

    Eijmert2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, wonderful hosts and perfect location.

    Marijan2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • The place is literally one minute to the beach. It’s clean . AC works perfectly. Breakfast is ok. They offer things like coffee/tea pancakes, eggs, muffins and fruits. The people who work there are really nice and helpful especially Thabit and Amir. They will tell you everything you need to know. I advise booking your activities through them to avoid being conned. The place is a walking distance to restaurants like Cholo’s, Mama Mia, Beach Baby and Gerry’s Bar. The only ATM in Nungwi is about a 5/10 minute drive away. I really enjoyed my stay and would definitely recommend.

    Wairimu2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was great! Room was large, clean and fulfilled all our needs. AC was working, warm water always available. Breakfast (Omelett, bread, coffee, pancakes and fruits) served each day on the terrace, which was a relaxing start into the day. Rama and the entire staff were caring about the guests, great to see. Last but not least we got a free upgrade, since the room was free! Anytime again!
