Fantastic stay, a place to get away from it all.
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.
Fantastic Staff and Location!
The villa was perfect for our week-long stay in Jambiani. Muhammed, Said and the ladies were ever-attentive. The fenced yard was great for our puppy who enjoyed all the new smells!
Beds were comfy, views from the rooftop veranda fabulous and location can't be beat!
Highly recommend it!
beautiful property, great service
The property was gorgeous, clean and very well maintained. The staff was incredible except for the property manager who really did not do anything. The staff was great and the meals they made were delicious. Beach was awesome.
Only complaint I have is that I paid to rent the whole house and we were told at the last minute that the top floor was already rented. Turns out the people who were renting it were awesome. Regardless,we do expect a partial refund
Glad you had a great stay and enjoyed the house, the service and the beach :)
Regarding the communication I told you as soon as you booked that this was a reduced price on a sharing basis (B&B), the top bedroom already rented, and that the whole house would have been a lot more expensive. You agreed to it and it was never an issue. Our conversation is recorded in the message history.
Let me know if you travel to Dar / Zanzibar for work again and can give you the whole house for that price next time :)
A Memorable Family Experience
We were a family of 8, including 2 children (8 and 10) starting our vacation in Zanzibar.
Raphael was very responsive, answering all my questions before arriving at Mwendawima Villa.
Kim's brother Kamaka greeted us at the airport and also did the transports to our snorkelling and back to Stone Town which was very easy, friendly and worry free.
The villa was so comfortable for us to relax and enjoy being a family after a very long flight from Canada. Every night I watched the stars from the top terrace with my grandchildren.
We were totally spoiled with the meals prepared by Mohammed (weeks later and I am still thinking of them!). All of the staff were wonderful ....such a treat to have our laundry done and beds beautifully made up each day. The easy and safe beach was so great, the kids could head down by themselves so it was very relaxing for everyone. The colours are so beautiful and the waters very interesting and warm. I was glad that one review mentioned bringing water shoes as we appreciated bringing ours.
We loved the top patio and enjoyed all our meals there. Did I mention the breakfasts? ...or the samosas'.....? Fabulous!
A truly memorable time. Too bad it is so far for us to travel as we would all love to return.
A real treat
This is a wonderful villa at Jambiani. The is a great team who cook delicious meals catering to every taste. The villa is cool and breezy with many places to sit and relax.
Sun, turquoise sea, white sand, great food, clean place and great staff! If you love these things then hop on the next plane and come to the Mwendawima Villa in Zanzibar. You will not be disappointed! The location is excellent and the seafood is freshly served by a professional chef named Mohamed who knows how to make you smile. If you love to swim this is one of the best places in the world so do not miss out. Thank you so much for the experiences. We will be back!
