Reviewed 9 August 2013

Pierre and Annick are the people that make all the difference here.They have a class and style of its own which makes their guesthouse unlike any other on Zanzibar. It's their very warm personality and their undisputable French touch that makes this place outstanding. Location is best - close to the great restaurant " Piece of mind " and seafront but still very central.The bungalows are smartly designed - don't expect any Ikea decoration here. Extremely clean and practical with all amenities for cooking. The showers offer plenty of water at all times of the day ( which does not give you carte blanche to spill it of course). In the beautiful garden you will sometimes find a ( rare ) endemic red Colobus monkey as a temporary resident.The rates are very reasonable. You feel that the owners do this all for their pleasure which is seldomly seen

Room Tip: The bungalow at the seafront is the best choice by far

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in July and fell in love with this place. Not only is the setting stunning with the most beautiful turquoise water we have ever seen but the accommodation was absolutely perfect and an incredible value. We stayed in the middle unit which is featured in many of the pictures and could not recommend it more highly. The kitchen is nicely equipped and Ali was incredibly helpful in making sure we had everything we needed, even taking us to the local market and bartering for veggies for us (which I am certain saved us significantly, money and time wise!). I always worry the pictures are too good to be true but in this case I would say the pictures do not do the place justice. The attention to details in each unit and the garden and sitting areas is incredible, complete with lanterns in the evening, and many chairs, hammocks, etc to relax. Our only complaint was the lack of water pressure in our shower but this did little to take away from our overall experience. Thank you for a wondful stay!

Room Tip: We loved the middle room, it has a separate kitchen and small sitting area in the bedroom.
