We enjoyed our stay at zanzibar villas. It was a beautiful place to stay, not far from the beach and very tranquil. The villa is beautifully decorated, spacious, cosy and clean. We couldnt have wished for a better place to stay and hope to be back some day soon. Thank you to make our stay so comfortable!

This was our second stay in Bushman's Hideout and it was every bit as good as the first. The house is very comfortable, clean and secure and the surroundings are beautiful and tranquil. We had a wonderful holiday and would like to thank Ali and his team for looking after us so well.

We went to Zanzibar as part of a larger trip around Tanzania (incl. Kilimanjaro hike). The 4-day vacation at Zanzibar villas (namely, Villa Flamboyant which is the newest villa in the complex) in Paje has been a great reward for the exhausted travellers. We were quite impressed by the villa and its surroundings: the house is very spacious, well-decorated, equipped... More

This is our second trip back to Zanzibar villas and as if it were possible, it surpassed this first. We stayed in a different villa this time (Bushman's hideout), it was fantastic. The place is just so easy to settle into and get on with your holiday and the all important relaxing. Travelling with two three year olds can be... More

We have just returned from a 12 night stay at The Beach Retreat. We have had a wonderful time, in beautiful surroundings, helped by the conscientious and efficient team at Zanzibar villas. Last year, we stayed at The Secret Garden (now Swahili House) with a group of 9 of us. We would not have returned to the same area, with... More

An all around bad experience from start to finish. When we arrived no one was there to meet us as promised. We drove around to find the manager without success and finally to access the Beach Retreat we had to go via someone elses property. Our welcome pack was missing 2 bolttles of wine and when we advised Neema (the... More

It is indeed a great shame that some things haven’t gone well on these peoples trip, but I stand behind all our local staff in saying they have done their very best, but here in Africa sometimes the games gets away from you. We just have a few holiday homes we rent out, we are not an expensive hotel with... More

What a wonderful place, we had a great time here. My husband and I travelled with our two 20 month old children and a friend and stayed for 9 days. We stayed in Mr. Todays and loved every minute of it. The house was just lovely, airy, spacious and clean. The rooms and beds were great and we enjoyed the... More

We stayed at Mr Todays in October 2011 for 10 nights. We chose the place initially for its location and the excellent communication I had with Ian Rodger when enquiring. We were after somewhere that was secluded, private and relaxing with the option to go out in the evenings for drinks and food and this villa gave it all to... More

All of the lodges were beautiful and the last one - Zanzibar Villas - was sublime. What a nice surprise when arriving late a BBQ was arranged and waiting for us. We were so not looking forward to doing shopping or look for a restaurant late at night. Really top service. The accommodation at Zanzibar Villas were lovely and the... More

We stayed at the Secret Garden villa for three nights in June 2011. It wasn't as clean as expected as the kitchen and bedrooms only seemed to be cleaned on the surface. The cutlery, crockery and electronic devices were covered in dirt and grime. The top bedroom's mattress smelled of old urine and had a flea/bug infestation. The downstairs single... More

I have written to you personally to ask you to remove these untrue comments, to which you haven’t even answered. This house is clean and you had a daily cleaner and a house manager to which you never mentioned one point of dissatisfaction until you had left the house and choose to voice your false opinion here! The house also... More
