Fantastic Charming House

  • 5 of 5

We spent 12 days in the villa with our kids. It is definitely a very good place for a journey in Zanzibar.

What we appreciated :

- The charm of the house, the garden and the view : the house and the view are more beautiful than the photos !

- The very helpful staff: Mohammed the Chef is just an incredible "cordon-bleu" (and my family is very demanding about food !) , Wakili and Kim who organised the tours for us and the kindness of the cleaners Na and Ni

- The beach so beautiful

- Jambiani which is still a typical village

We highly recommend the villa and we will definitely come again !

Great two weeks

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks in the villa. We was seven adults.

We had a great time there. The house is very beautiful and got everything you need. The chef Mohamed and his stuff are just perfect. They cooked every day for us for dinner and it was every time delicios.

Also the other persons who looks for the hous and the cleaning are very friendly.

Kim the guid and manager was every time there when we needed him and did aswell a very good job.

All the persons in and around the hous work realy seriosly.

Thanks for this great experience there. We will come back soon!

Ideal White Sand Beach Villa

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful experience with exceptional accommodations for 6 adults. No need to eat anywhere else. Three HUGE beautifully delicious meals daily prepared by chef Mohamed, who caters to even the pickiest of appetites and eaters. We felt very safe and comfortable in Jambiani, and loved walking at low tide out to the seaweed gardens and swimming at high tide. It was fun to shop on the beach with vendors and in the area small family owned shops. We loved spending time on the roof terrace, enjoying meals, sunning and star gazing. Kim was very helpful in obtaining masks and snorkels, finding transport to and from the airport and helping us with a place to enjoy the beach until a late departure. Highly recommended for a family retreat, we wished we had a much longer stay.

Very nice and charming property

  • 5 of 5

The house and service were impeccable.

Very nice house where we really enjoyed staying. Staff charming, efficient and excellent, especially the chef Muhamedi, amazing and worthy of a head of large restaurant with lavish dinners and different every night, served and served in the garden or on the roof terrace. We had dinner almost every night and several lunches.

Household and beds are made thoroughly every morning, employees are discreet and pleasant.

We are in all VERY happy with our stay, Zanzibar is superb and Jambiani beach was idyllic for us who wanted to be quiet.
