Built in 1840, this six bedroom house 5 minutes walk away from the beach, has retained many of the features of traditional Swahili design: a spacious roof-top verandah; Zanzibar beds and high beamed ceilings.
The house has two double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms; there are two single bedrooms and a twin bedroom. There's a bathroom downstairs and a bed settee upstairs and two additional beds in the ground floor front room. There are ceiling fans in every room. Upstairs there's a cooker, fridge/freezer and a washing machine. The house is in the old town and 5 mins walk from the beach, the market and a few lovely restaurants. It is easy to feel part of the community. Guests are able to park on the grass behind the house. A night watchman is employed to look after your car and the house.
The neighbour will open the house for you and hand over the keys when you arrive. She is available to clean daily for you should you wish.
We will call to check everything is alright, when you arrive and can be reached any time, by phone.
Our home is situated in Old town Bagamoyo near three mosques and during Ramadan it can be noisy at night.
Please avoid smoking in the house.
