Good: Raphael responded quickly, the chef Mohammed's meals were absolutely wonderful, the housekeeping staff was very efficient and friendly. Bad: The heat was unbearable inside the home from sunrise to sunset in November. As there is no air conditioning, more and faster fans are needed....More

About the neighbourhood
Jambiani is a quaint and charming fishing village on the East Coast of Zanzibar, 45 minutes drive from Stone Town. It is a quiet residential area with beach villas, small hotels, beach bars and restaurants. The villa is situated within the lively community of Jambiani where locals get on with their daily activities such as fishing, havesting seaweed, playing footbal on the beach, swimming in the lagoon. They are friendly, open and welcoming.

At high tide you can swim as the ocean is 10 meters away from the house. At low tide the lagoon is even more beautiful as the women harvest seaweed and the fishermen come back from deep sea fishing on traditional dhow boats. If you walk five minutes towards the reef you can swim at low tide
