After spending a few days in Stonetown, my friend and I rented a car and went off to explore the island. It took us not long to reach Paje, which has the best beach of all on this island. With no planning and pre-booking we were lucky to get a small bungalow, as Jan is high season. Paradise beach bungalows is run by a Japanese lady, and yes, you can get really fresh homemade sushi, depending on the catch of the day. The rate was halfboard which turned out just perfect. Every afternoon, a staff member would come and tell you what was on for dinner, including nealry all ingredients. I found that really impressive, working in hospitality myself. The bungalows are very basic, no electricity, only oil lamps. The room had two massive wooden colonial style beds with mossie nets. The ensuite bath contained a toilet [a bucket with spare water, in case...] and a very basic shower head sticking out of the wall. But hey, who cares! it is sooo quiet and peaceful, just unbelievable. A few Masaai are around, sort of security gards, and some cats / dogs were strolling in the garden. Since the bungalows have no good ventilation, we left the entrance door wide open in the night to enjoy a bit of a frsh ocean breeze. The best was in the evening sitting under the stars, sapping a cool Serengeti or Kili and enjoying the endless shimmer of stars on the night skys. Because of its basic features and simplicity, I found these two days there extremely realxing.
