We stayed a week - two adults and three teenagers. A perfect place to relax and enjoy nice food, the sea and sun. Ann and Edi know how to make you feel like a guest. They care about their guests, their environment and their local community. Beautifully laid out and decorated. Good snorkelling a short bike ride away. Highly recommended.

We stayed 3 night in robinson's house with My boyfriend. Very nice place, safety (his room doesn't have door...) Ann and Admed are very friendly. Breakfast and dinner are tasty. We suggest this place to have some rest.

I visited Zanzibar with my 5 boys aged between 7 and 16y in October. We stayed in the main house at Robinsons Place. It was absolutely perfect for us. The rooms were spacious and had everything we needed. Breakfast was amazing, the boys loved the fruit and fresh bread. The setting is beautiful. My older boys weren't sure about the... More

I've just stayed five days at Robinson's Place and I loved it. Great location and I love the charming atmosphere there. Seems more authentic than the places nearby - including the food they serve. And Ann and Eddy are great people to chat with :-)

We went there because a friend recommended it and we are so happy we followed her advise. This is probably not a place for everybody, but they don't hide anything and what they offer is what you get. If you are fin without electricity and want to enjoy Zanzibar as if you were really far from wherever you came from... More

We were a crowd of 12, half adults and half kids, and it was just right. Accommodations were just right, the rooms nice and spacious, and the beach close by. It was breezy in the evening, and there is no A/C, but it didn't bother anyone in our group. We all enjoyed the beach. The food was excellent, prepared by... More

We stayed 2 nights and 3 days at Robinsons place. It was the perfect place to rest and recuperate! No electricity, but the candles placed around the place create a relaxing ambiance. We stayed in the main house, very spacious with 5 big beds & mosquito nets. Shower and toilet were clean. It had 3 day beds which was lovely... More

Don't read any further if your holiday dreams involve air-conditioned, bland sameness. This is a special place for people who know how to chill and ride with the tides and loft with the breezes off the east coast of Zanzibar. Ann and Edi's place is right on the beach. Chai tea, fruit and eggs in the early morning under the... More

Ann and Edi created a little paradise isolated from the real life. Although there is no electricity in the guesthouse you charge your natural batteries (take it easy – Edi may charge your mobile phone). The venue is full of harmony, charm and blissful. We experienced the loveliest time ever in our life. Best for honeymooners;)

Even the bathroom is beautiful and the shower has hot running water! Edi and Ann are very hospitable. They prepare fantastic Zanzibari food and create an intimate atmosphere.
