We stayed for 12 nights in January 2019 and rented to whole property. The house could not be closer to the beach, right on the doorstep, the bedrooms are comfortable and equipped with both ceiling fans and portable fans and there's was plenty of space for our 7 person party. We enjoyed the roof terrance and it was fabulous to eat breakfast overlooking the clear blue ocean, the view is amazing. There are plenty of beach bars and restaraunts within walking distance along the beach, and a few shops for supplies in Page. Most evenings we chose to eat at the property as Mohammed and his team were absolutely fantastic, I cannot shower enough praise on them, the food was wonderful and they even made me a birthday cake one evening. The staff were so friendly and welcoming we were really sad to leave them, Rapael was also great and was quick to answer any queries prior to our visit and contacted us whilst we were there just to check everything was going well, Kim the house manager was on hand to organise any trios or transport we needed, all in all we had a lovely memorable holiday and would recommend this property to anyone travelling to Zanzibar.
We're really glad we chose this place, which is more than a lovely, comfortable house: it's a real immersive experience. We're grateful to Harriet and Peter who share their love of Zanzibar and Kizimkazi village, and allow travellers to discover the island intimately inside this local community they have woven tight bonds with over the years. We felt welcome, free and safe. Just make sure you plan your stay properly (there are no supermaket or ATM nearby so you need to arrive fully stocked). Thanks again for allowing us to travel in such a pleasant and meaningful way!
