What kind of beach do you like? sand and waves or tourists? Here, like nowhere else, you will live unique experiences such as feeding bush babies, sleeping under the Milky way, climbing the coconut challenge, learning how to cook a curry with our Chef, and much more.

Captivate them instead with the fascinating stories of what you discovered. Created in 1995 and accredited by the Commission for Tourism this is our family place we rent to posh persons. It has not been created to make money out of it but only to make people happy. What kind of beach do you like? sand and waves or tourists? Here, like nowhere else, you will live unique experiences such as feeding bush babies, sleeping under the Milky way, climbing the coconut challenge, learning how to cook a curry with our Chef, and much more. The property is huge and the villa is huge.Our place is not narrow because you are not narrow minded. You will stay in an authentic Swahili/Colonial stylish villa 387 m², perfect for families and children of all ages. 24/7 local staff and Manager and chauffeur are at your service. A superb location, no doubt the most beautiful beach of the island, preserved from mass tourism, right facing the best diving spot “Mnemba Marine Park”. Definitely not a place for tourists herds, alcohol on the beach, and touts. Here, there are no real-fake “traditional folkloric dancers”, no international sterile dishes, it's Cuisine not food. Here full liberty: cook yourself, bed & breakfast, half - or full board with our famous Chefs. With or without Private Chauffeur. The local staff will happily help you with any question, go shopping with you, book local activities or guide you through their village. You'll stay in a 387 m² villa built with very wide openings to welcome the gentle sea breeze and breath-taking views to the Indian Ocean. Local Arab true antiques and English Colonial furniture. No “Made in plastic”. Only local materials, made by locals. Our staff comes exclusively from the village. For assistance and guidance: the local staff is always around to help or guide for local activities. Our Manager is always at your service for full information or to drive you around the island. House Rules: No smoking please, be polite, be thankful, meditate, go out of the beaten tracks, smile, make friends on the beach, watch the stars, drink fresh coconuts every day and disconnect from the world. Don’t accumulate pictures, live and imprint those moments in your memory for ever. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: LICENCEGRANTED.More

About the neighbourhood
We are located in a beautiful small and exclusive bay, on the nicest East coast of Zanzibar. From the villa 387 m² and our bungalow 60 m², you’ll have an amazing view to the Indian Ocean, the turquoise water, the coral reef, and the lagoon. You’re just minutes away from the best diving spot ' Mnemba Marine Park'. You’ll have guaranteed exclusivity, privacy and intimacy but only at a few minutes walk from the village and restaurants. This is a unique huge property facing the sea. What do you like? sea sun sand and waves or tourists?
Getting around
Walk, jog, swim, bicycle, rent a motorbike, rent a car, car with chauffeur, or a donkey ride is also possible. To visit the island: our Chauffeur will drive you around. To go to Stone Town, there is also an interesting local bus dala dala n°118 for an immersive experience.
