White sands bungalow is a beautiful place in a heavenly surrounding. It's location is awesome directly at a beautiful beach and just a couple of minutes away walk from Jambiani village. From the second I arrived, I felt very welcome and nicely taken care of. I did not feel uncomfortable at any time of my entire stay of 7 days.... More

And it is small enough for you to get to know the other guests. I has quite the family feel about it. It´s got what you need, the... More

We booked here to stay for 4 nights during our 2 weeks on the island. We arrived here early afternoon from Nungwi. We did email them direct to arrnage accommodation but got no reply after 3 days and so we booked via agoda as it was cheaper than booking.com.

Friendly staff and atmosphere which made us feel like home. The local food dishes were unbelievably wonderful. We enjoyed morning walk alongside the clear beach and relaxing in the hotel's beach cradles facing the sea.
