We stayed for a week at Stonehouse in Jamiani, what a great decision! Everything was arranged for us - we were picked up at the airport by Zion, the manager, who even arranged dinner and drinks for us on the road in another village. The staff were great, Elias was a fountain of information and so friendly, and James, in the kitchen, was a great cook. His chapatis are sensational, and the breakfasts and dinners were super. The house is lovely and quiet, any noise on the beach didn't disturb us at all. We had thought to travel around, and Elias drew us maps and laid out places to see in Stonetown. The price was perfect for us, and there were plenty of restaurants around for variety. The diving and the snorkeling in the area was great, comparable to most I have seen other places in the world. Sailing, swimming, shelling, terrific days relaxing on the beach under some trees, sipping a drink. Heaven! We stayed upstairs for the breeze, though downstairs rooms have fans. The view was great!
