“The loveliest house right on the beach!”
Reviewed 9 March 2017 for a stay in December 2016

My family and I had a wonderful stay at Stefanias lovely house right on the beach. We bought fresh tuna fish from the local fishermen, food in the village and lived low key and very relaxing. Remember to bring cash, or else you have to go back to Stonetown to get it (more than an hour drive).
The house is very cosy and calm. You have your own local guide, who is very helpful and a lovely woman who cleans it every other day.
Right around the corner is a great little hotell Zanwing, where you can eat and have a dip in the pool, when the tide is there. I warmly recommend it.
Remember to dress properly in the village. Long dresses and tshirts for the women and shorts and tshirt for the men. It is a muslim village and one need to respect that. The local people are friendly and kind!

We had a very relaxing week in Stefanias house!

“Can't wait to go back”
Reviewed 24 May 2016 for a stay in February 2016

person found this review helpful

The first impression when I arrived was that I was the first person staying there - that is how immaculately clean the place is. There is everything one could wish for from a well-equipped kitchen to spacious accommodation and the most gorgeous-smelling fluffy towels! The private compound is unobtrusively swept on a daily basis, the water tank is kept full so that one need do nothing but lie on the outdoor built-in lounger, gazing at the most perfect view whilst sipping on the local Konyagi! Salum and Stefania are the most gracious hosts for whom nothing was too much trouble. On my 8th visit to the island, this will be my destination!

“The best place in Zanzibar!”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

people found this review helpful

If someone chooses a different destination on Zanzibar-he is seriously mistaken. This is the best house we ever rented, and there were many such houses. The house is big enough, very comfortable, very clean.The whole house is decorated in African style. Large bedroom with a king size bed, living room and kitchen with ocean views! The second room is small, located on the second floor, nice and cosy. Our daughter liked it very much. The kitchen has everything you need-stove, toaster, kettle, coffee maker, dishes, all necessary Cutlery. Two bathrooms with toilet, one with a lovely shower. There is constant hot water. Towels for the shower, beach towels and bed linen is changed once a week. There is a small patio outside where you can escape from the sun.The location is great! The house is a continuation of the beach with a small garden. You take two steps through the gate and you're already clean, white sand, great beach! You can feel at one with nature and away from people, no worries! Superb views and gorgeous sunrises and sunsets-what more could you ask for?.. Near the house there are several local shops, very close-lots of souvenir shops. Mistress Stefania beautiful - before our arrival she bought groceries for us for the first time, as well as fruit and a bottle of good wine, it was so cute, thank you! We constantly felt the care and warmth! Her husband, Salum, helped us a lot on all issues, as well as island tours, thank you very much! It was a lovely memorable stay in a great place, come and you will not regret it!
