Long-term renting an apartment in Zanzibar's Stone Town

I'm looking for a rental apartment in Zanzibar. Would quite like to have two years in Stone Town . beach front of course would be ideal!

Does anyone have any information or places they can recommend to me. I will teach for two years at the University of Stone town, and when i get off work, i can return to a beautiful home.

I just know the volunteers that are living in that apartment till the end of January, so its best if you contact the hotel who was arranging them the place. I will also ask one of the volunteers if i may give you their contact. Will send you private msg if they allow.

I am American presently working in Canada . I stayed at Mkongwe family home for the month of April in 2011 - for a long deserved holiday - after seeing their site on the web and reading all the fabulous recommendations. I knew immediately I made the right choice once arrived. I also knew all the recommendations were true! It is truly a second home - clean spacious rooms, a tidy home, reasonable rates, and interesting people, of all ages, coming and going whether for a few days or a few months. Mkongwe lives on a quiet street, but with the necessary shops and bus stops nearby, and the heart of Stone Town only a 4 minute walk away. She lets you come and go as you please, but is always ready to help you find your way , or just to have a chat in between sight-seeing. I long to return to Mkongwe's home, and when I do, I won't even bother to investigate elsewhere (and I'm sure she has many many people the same! I have so many memories of this amazing city - the Swahili language, the life, and a couple of good friends . See you again soon,their email info@thehotelszanzibar.co.uk
