This stately patrician home features 2 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and a large private studio rooftop terrace.

IT IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR RENTAL ON A MONTHLY BASIS FOR UP TO ONE YEAR FOR $800 PER MONTH

The master bedroom has a king-size bed and its own air conditioning unit. The guestroom has a queen-size bed. All rooms have their own ensuite bathroom. There are two additional single beds for children and near the swimming pool on the main floor there is a double bed. If you require additional beds this can be arranged.

Services of Ali Maulidi the Houseman are included. Ali's apartment is behind two big doors on the same floor as the pool area.

He will invite you to go to market with him. Expense for food will usually not exceed $10 a day.

He will make you breakfast and an authentic Swahili dinner with freshly squeezed juices every evening.

If you require additional beds, we can try and arrange for that.

We will pick you up at the air strip on Manda and bring you to the house. Porter charges also included.

We will arrange for wifi in the house at the regular local charge.

The house dates from the late 19th Century and has been restored in great detail, with all new electricity wiring, a Yemeni-inspired tower that is home to the water storage and a plunge pool on the main floor. The house is of palatial proportions and takes on a magical character at night.

Location great, house amazing. Our transport to and from the airport was great though. Ali, the housekeeper, is the nicest guy and was very welcoming.

We had a very nice stay at Makubwa. Ali and Ahmed were both helpful. It's a beautiful house and conveniently located. We would recommend it to our friends.
