A beachfront home for your family & friends in an authentic and unique location! Enjoy the warm ocean in the blue lagoon, colourful flowers, coconut palms and papaya trees, the never ending white sand beach, and meaningful local interaction on the spice island of Zanzibar!
We aim to create a true home feel, in an authentic Zanzibari environment, without compromising on modern conveniences such as internet access, warm water, air conditioning, washing machine (free of charge), daily cleaning service.
The villa is fully serviced in terms of food and drinks. There is a fully-equipped kitchen and outdoor BBQ available for self-catering and you are free to cook your own meals with locally purchased ingredients at the market, or on the beach (e.g. fresh fish, or octopus). If you would rather relax, we can provide a fully customised menu at very reasonable rates. Drinks (beer, white and red wine from Spain and South Africa, Prosecco) are available in the villa and offered at retail prices in the shop.
The spaces are generous and include living, dining, kitchen and veranda areas on the ground floor, 3 bedrooms on the first floor and a colourful master suit in the attic, 5 bathrooms (one in each room and one in the living area). The furnishings blend modern amenities (free wireless internet, AC, hot water, etc.) with a local flavour found in the choice of materials and designs.
Wide verandas run alongside the house, offering beautiful views of the ocean. The villa is surrounded by a beachfront garden with coconut palms, papaya trees and colourful flowers leading to the white sand beach.
There is a swimming pool in front of the house, near to the veranda. It’s not very big, enough to have a dip and cool off, but not enough to swim.
Beach beds and umbrellas are available on the beach inside the premises for you to enjoy. You will also have at your disposal local beach towels (kikoy).
We have some snorkeling equipment, water goggles and shoes, kayaks, paddle boards and beach bicycles: please feel at home and use them at no extra charge.
Mama Bahati is our local property manager and will be happy to help you organise your stay. She is very much solution oriented and has all the right contacts on the island. Do not hesitate to ask her for help, or advice.
She has a gregarious sense of humour and always happy to share stories about the island and its villagers.
Kidawa is a passionate gardener and provides the maintenance of the outside facilities
Mussa is our security night watch. As a simple and sensible precaution there is always someone watching over the house.
In addition the house is serviced by two local cleaning ladies.
Welcome Guide: we have put together a short Welcome Guide for our guests with all information about activities, best options for food and drinks, house amenities and important contact numbers. We left a bound copy of the guide in the home for our guests easy reference.

We are a couple who loves to travel around the world.
When we visited Zanzibar for the first time in August 2014, we fell in love with the island, an exotic and authentic place, amazing people and great culture. We acquired the villa in early 2015, renovated it and now we would like to share the experience with other people.
We hope that you will enjoy your stay in Zanzibar as much as we do!
