Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Pangani - Beach Villa Tanzania Coast

Direct beach access, 3 self-contained bedroom suites, 7 people, seafront terrace

Welcome to our tropical paradise! Our newly renovated property is situated on a 2 acre beach plot facing the Indian Ocean (private property). Ushongo Bay is touristically largely undeveloped idyllic beach (unlike nearby Kenyan coast) Tropical garden dominated by coconut palm trees.

Main house sleeps 5 persons in two large self-contained suites (bedroom plus bathrooms, dressing room). 2 double beds plus 1 large single bed. The separate guest cottage has one bedroom with two single beds, a bathroom, a kitchen and a terrace.

The spacious and airy house sits on an elevated platform and offers great views on the Indian Ocean. The house has been completed in June 2007. Solid stone houses built with local materials (Makuti thatched roof, hardwood/ boatwood furniture & natural stone floors).

It offers comfort and all modern amenities. Private maid is provided. Daily flights to Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar or Arusha (Safari Airlink, Coastal Air, Air Tanzania), speed boat to Zanzibar or taxi. Check out our website (see below).

Why Ushongo Tanzania?: Tanzania is a great alternative to the Southern coast of Kenya and Zanzibar: no mass tourism (no package tours, no big beach hotels), our beach house is in front row with direct access, no beach prostitution, no hawkers or other nuisance.

Unlike many beaches in Zanzibar Ushongo bay is a swimmers paradise. You and your children can swim in the sea the whole year. There are no dangerously high waves and there is no pollution.

Ideally you could combine your beach holiday with a safari in North Tanzania. We can establish contact to reliable companies offering good value for money. We speak English! On parle Francais!

Our house has just been completed in June 2007. It is a solid stone house built with local materials ranging from Makuti thatched roof to hardwood and natural stone floors. Only for the bathrooms and for electricity we have used imported tiles and fittings. The house is spacious and airy (total size 150 m2, 6 metres high ceilings. The furniture are made of Eucalyptus and Mninga wood. Some furniture are made of defunct boats. The house has a large terrace facing the ocean which offers shade throughout the whole day with seating for 16 persons. The house has 2 self-contained bedrooms, each one with a large bathroom. Each of the rooms has one 2x2 metre double bed plus a single bed. The two bedrooms are connecting to a living room and a kitchen separated by a bar. There is also a rear terrace, ideal for sundowners watching the sun set. The kitchen is fully equipped with 2 fridges, one freezer, gas/electric stove, plates and cooking utensils for serious cuisine for larger groups.

Beautiful hideaway at the Indian Ocean

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the house, very much regretting having to leave.

The house itself with 2 spacious bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and dressing each, open plan kitchen, built and decorated in the beautiful Swahili coast style is set approx. 30 metres from the beach in a nice garden ensuring absolute privacy. It has a lovely and huge veranda with a comfy sofa where you can take your meals or simply relax. With the house come a housemaid and gardener, both very friendly and helpful, who take care of everyday cleaning inside and outside the house so that you can fully enjoy your stay. The gardener was also helpful to buy vegetables and fresh fish for a barbecue in the garden. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need, there is even a small freezer, and house and garden are well maintained.

As Ushongo beach has only a very few lodges, convenient for eating out if you like or meeting people, it is very quiet and especially without the crowd of vendors or motorcycles passing you may find on Zanzibar beaches.

Communication with the owner was excellent and we faced no problems before or during our stay.

We can recommend the house without any reserve for those who are looking for a relaxing and easy going holiday on the beach in a beautiful environment.

Relax in quiet paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house on a gorgeous stretch of beach, very peaceful and stress-free. Unlike Zanzibar or Mombasa, Ushongo has not been discovered by many tourists. You can walk along the beach for miles and see only a few local villagers and fishermen. The water is warm and clear, and most of the year is free from seaweed. It is perfect for swimming, body surfing, and sailing. The house itself is open and airy, more than comfortable, extremely clean and has every thing you would need. You may never want to stray from the lovely verandah, however, as it faces the beach and is well shaded by lovely palm and coconut trees. If you choose to have the cook/housekeeper stay with you, you will be in for a treat with great cooking and warm smile. This is a perfect get-away for families, honeymooners, and/or those seeking some quiet time in paradise. The owners will go out of their way to be sure you are happy and have everything you need there. There are all the major appliances you need to prepare all meals, etc. Wonder Swahili-style beds give the place a wonderful, exotic atmosphere.

There are a couple of other hotels within 10 and 30 minutes walk, if you want to go to a restaurant or bar. But the best part is there are no "hawkers" walking around trying to sell you something while you are relaxing on the beach or under the palm trees. I would highly recommend staying here for at least 2 weeks. You can come and go easily by plane, to/from Arusha, after a safari.

Man bekommt einfach nicht genug

  • 5 of 5

Zum zweiten Mal hatten wir die Freude, in dieser traumhaften Villa Urlaub mit Freunden verbringen zu können. Das Haus selbst sehr komfortabel, sauber, bestens gepflegt. Der Strand immer noch unbeschreiblich schön. Das Personal sehr aufmerksam und hilfsbereit. Es fällt so schwer, hier wieder abzureisen. Die Kommunikation mit der Vermieterin ist exzellent. Die Informationen, die man mit der neuen Broschüre bekommt, sind ausführlich und sehr hilfreich. Wir können dieses Objekt hundertprozentig empfehlen. Wir sind mit dem eigenen Auto angereist, brauchten also keinen Transfer. Es gibt in der Umgebung ein paar Lodges, aber auch ein einheimisches Restaurant drei Grundstücke weiter. Die Preise für ein Abendessen liegen zwischen 10 und 20 Dollar. Da das Haus mit einer guten Kühl-Gefrier-Kombination ausgestattet ist, kann man sich auch bestens selbst versorgen. Der Gärtner besorgt frischen Fisch und Holzkohle zum Grillen.

Traumhaftes Tansania

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten 2 traumhafte Wochen am Strand vom Ushongo. Die Anreise verlief problemlos mit Coastal Air von Dar Es Salaam nach Mashado, wo wir bereits erwartet wurden. Alles wurde bestens durch die Vermieterin Marie organisiert. Die Kommunikation mit Marie war sehr freundlich, informativ und hilfreich.

Das Haus war so wie beschrieben, fast direkt am Meer (nur durch den eigenen Garten getrennt), mit lauem Lüftchen auf der Terrasse und im Haus, so dass eine Klimaanlage absolut nicht nötig ist.

Wir haben lange Spaziergänge am Strand unternommen, u. A. auf einen Drink, zum Wi-Fi oder auch zum Lunch oder Dinner in eine der Lodges am Strand.

Auch ein Tagesausflug nach Tanga, ein Schnorcheltrip zum Maziwe Island, ein Segeltrip mit einem einheimischen Boot, dies alles war sehr „erlebnisreich“, einfach toll.

Adebi, der Mann für fast alles ist die „gute Seele“ des Hauses. Ihm wird nichts zu viel. Er organisiert, klärt Problemchen, geht einkaufen, grillt fantastisch und ist dazu noch sehr freundlich. Der “Red Snapper“, absolut frisch, war immer eine Wucht!!!

Elisabeth sorgte für die Sauberkeit des Hauses und verwöhnte uns mit Snacks den Tag über.

Die einheimische Bevölkerung war sehr offen, freundlich, nicht aufdringlich, wir fühlten uns dort sehr sicher.

Wir können die Strandvilla wärmstens empfehlen. Wer einen ruhigen Strand bevorzugt, Einheimischen beim Fischen zusehen möchte und gerne abseits der Touristenströme reist, der ist hier bestens aufgehoben.

einfach nur toll

  • 5 of 5

Nachdem wir in letzter Zeit uns öfters an Kenias Südküste erholten, suchten wir für dieses Jahr eine Alternative an welchen wir die negativen Seite von Kenias Urlaubsregion nicht hatten. Und diesen Ort haben wir im Ferienhaus von Marie und Busso gefunden. Wer die Ursprünglichkeit Ostafrika, den warmen Ozean, herzlich freundliche Menschen und Ruhe sucht, ist hier genau richtig. Hier findet man das völlige Gegenteil zum hektischen Europa, ohne auf europäischen Standart in der Ausstattung des Hauses zu verzichten. Wenn man allerdings Action und Party sucht ist man hier vielleicht doch etwas Fehl am Platze. Wir suchten ein Platz wo man die Seele baumeln lassen kann und den haben wir hier gefunden.

Wir entschieden uns für einen Direktflug von Frankfurt nach Sansibar. Die Abholung die unsere Vermieterin durch ein Taxi organisierte nutzten wir gleich um im nächsten VodaCom-Shop uns tansanische SIM-Karten für unsere Smartfones inklusive Internet-Flatrate zu organisieren. Das Taxi brachte uns an die Nordspitze Sansibars wo unsere Fähre, welche wir über Kerstin von der PADI-Tauchschule "Kasa-Divers" buchten bereits auf uns wartete. Das Boot brachte uns direkt an den Strand unseres Ferienhauses. Dort wartete bereits Adebi unser Gärtner auf uns. Adebi hatte während unseres Aufenthaltes alles im Griff. Hatte man ein kleines Problem, löste er es schnellstmöglich. Auch Kiri, welche für Ordnung und Sauberkeit, blieb uns positiv in Erinnerung. Das Haus war ein guter Ausgangspunkt um auch verschiedene Trips oder Safaris zu starten. Am Ushongo-Strand gibt es neben einigen Privathäuser auch eine Hand voll kleine Hotels/Cottages in welchen man in gemütlicher Athmosphäre gut zu Abend essen kann oder ein Drink genießen kann.

In Vorbereitung auf einen Urlaub am Ushongo-Beach bedarf es jedoch einer gewissen Planung. Neben den Impfschutz sollte man unbedingt auf seine Reiseapotheke achten. Wir brauchten zwar während unseres fünfwöchigen Aufenthaltes keine Tabletten, werden jedoch bei unseren nächsten Urlaub hier auch an Medikamente gegen Malaria denken.

Zu guter Letzt können wir feststellen, dass die Beschreibung dieses Hauses vollumfänglich zutreffend, auch die positiven Bewertungen der Urlauber die vor uns hier waren können wir bestätigen.

Fazit: Ob das Urlaubsziel besser oder schlechter als Kenias Südküste ist, kann man nicht sagen. Es hängt davon ab was man will. Wer allerdings so wie wir auf Strandboys, Parties und Prostitution verzichten will, ist hier genau richtig!

Ushongo Bay is a tropical paradise with a sandy beach with safe swimming throughout the year. It is situated 15 km from the old Arab town of Pangani. Ushongo is touristically largely undeveloped (unlike neighbouring Mombasa, which is a mass tourism destination). There are no traffic noises, no souvenir shops, no hawkers, water scooters or other disturbances. Typically there are no more than 20-50 tourists in the Ushongo area (three bays, approx. 10 km). The usual movements to be seen are villagers on bicycles on the beach and traditional fishing boats crossing the bay. Swimming is possible year-round at high and low tide, ideal for children. Endless beach walks, snorkelling/diving in nearby marine park.

Ushongo has great potential for Windsurfing, Sailing, Kite-Surfing and Diving. There is a school/rental stations in walking distance. But since tourism has not developed yet there are very few water sport activists to be seen on the water.

Other Activities: motorboats, dhows, sailing boats & windsurfers can be rented nearby
