Welcome to Villa Biba, our two stories villa at Jambiani Beach, Zanzibar. The house is located in front row of the beautiful, white coral sand beach. This is a spacious modern villa, built in traditional Zanzibar style. The house has five bedrooms with capacity for up to 12 persons. All bedrooms are connected to Arabic-style bathrooms.
The large living room upstairs has a veranda with sea view, where you can enjoy the cool evening breeze and scenery of the Indian Ocean. The living-room has a TV, and a DVD player. Two of the upstairs bedrooms face the sea and have balconies where you can enjoy the sunrise.
At ground floor there are two bedrooms, an African kitchen, and a large dining room with exit to a patio, offering shade at day-time and outdoor dining facilities with a fantastic sea view. The garden, which has direct access to the beach, includes two local crafted umbrellas with four sun-beds.
The African kitchen gives the possibility for the local chef to prepare dishes the African way. You can assist in food-shopping if you want, by joining the staff when they buy the fresh fish from the fishermen on the beach as they arrive back to the shore early in the morning.
Beach life, and swimming, and fun water sports are easily accessible. There is a modern kayak belonging to the house, available for free at your convenience.
Our local fisherman may bring you to the barrier reef where you may go snorkelling.
Kite surfing, wind surfing, and snorkelling equipment can be rented in the village, or the neighbouring village, Paje. Courses for beginners, and advanced kiting and surfing, as well as diving courses, can also be arranged there at local prices.
