This is a great little oasis in Tanzania. I stayed for 4 weeks on business and found it to be very comfortable with high quality facilities. I especially enjoyed the outside kitchen (which I used as a pleasant outdoor office when there weren't other guests) and the reliably hot water in the shower (something one must not take for granted in Tanzania).
Frederica and Geoff were fantastic hosts and Franco, the handyman and security guard, was friendly a huge help on many occasions when coming or going at odd hours or just needing help with anything in general.
The only downside is that the location can be a bit of a challenge if you'e unfamiliar with the area or do not have your own transportation. But Frederica or Geoff will be more than happy to help you arrange transport.
