Unique Indian Ocean Villa on the Northeast coast of Zanzibar, facing Mnemba Island. The house has 5 double bed/bath suites, all large and completely furnished. All bathrooms have open hot/cold showers. The house is constructed and furnished in an authentic Swahili style and has many Swahili artifacts scattered throughout. All the house opens out towards the beach and there are outdoor dining and sitting areas for your use. The 5m x 6m swimming pool is the perfect size for cooling down when the tide is low.
The house is named after one of their daughters, born on the island whose name means “flower” in Swahili. It is a beach house through and through! Everything is designed for relaxed family style living and sand moves freely in and outside the house. We are blessed to be on one of the most beautiful Indian Ocean beaches in Zanzibar and our proximity to Mnemba Island and its world class diving/snorkeling is enviable. Water temperatures are 26 C in winter (July/August) and 29 C in summer (December/January).
Daniel and Mumeni, who care for and manage the house, are waiting to welcome you! Chef Sule is ready to grill your freshly caught fish or prepare you a wonderfully fragrant Swahili curry. Juliana is available for relaxing Swahili massage. You will be collected in Stonetown and transported to the house in air-conditioned comfort.
A variety of sightseeing excursions and tours of the local boat building yard, Stonetown, spice plantations and turtle rescue center can be organized. We are all about, quiet and helpful service. We hope you will feel warmly cared for in true Swahili style.
World Class diving is at your doorstep through our dive partner SCUBAFISH. Owner Yong Mi Janse and the Scubafish team will organise courses or outings that will give you a window into the magnificent underwater world of the East African Indian Ocean.
