In December/January I was in Stonehouse for my third time. It get´s more and more a coming home guesthouse. You simply feel good, when you can relax there, watching the sea from upstairs or from the beach. Your living just right in the local village. Sometimes with cows under your window... The atmosphere is fine, food is well prepared, sea... More

Storehouse blew us away! The house is placed front row to the ocean with stunning views, a most relaxed atmosphere, and just lovely proprietors. A delightful and affordable contrast to the resorts in the North of Zanzibar. The in-house food (great seafood) and service was nice and several other eateries are spread along the beach of Jambiani and Paje. Our... More

We stayed for 2 nights (wish we had stayed longer) and loved being right on the beach. The staff was GREAT. Not intrusive, but friendly and readily available if needed. The food was delicious and we'd highly recommend James' chicken! It was very easy to have the staff help arrange for us and another couple to go snorkeling one afternoon.... More

We stayed here for three days. A bit surprised that the room is quite large but also a bit empty - One bed and small table. However, we were assigned the room facing the ocean view which was really great! The issue was it was quite hot during the night b/c the window wasn't opening and there was no a/c.... More

Stonehouse - A wonderful place to be absolutely next to the coloured sea, feeling and hearing it. Also in the night. The atmosphere in this guesthouse is very relaxed. If you like having no TV, no newspaper and only a few tourists in this beach area then go there. By listening to Bob Marley music from the gorgeous beach bar,... More

A modest guesthouse with a fantastic location on east coast of Zanzibar (just south of Paje). We booked online with the manager Peter who lives in Sweden and also experienced some confusion after we settled in as the staff had put us in the wrong rooms (upstairs) and then wanted twice the rate cited. All was solved by next morning,... More
