Great service and accommodation for the budget traveller! Clean, simple and autherntic
was a bit difficult to find, however we got there in the end and what a beautiful location. Waking up and falling asleep to the sound of the indian ocean waves- bliss!
First of all the owner was very helpful and informative about the area. The rooms are very tastefully decorated with local wooden/weaved shelving/closet areas. For two people the room was adequately sized and as it was low season we were facing the beach, however from what we can see all the rooms are ON the beach and fantastic. You can hear the waves as you are directly on the beach.
Beach sea was warm and great for a stroll, as we walked along there were other bars/cafes and BBs. In the morning there is low tide and locals can be seen collecting seaweed and fishing.
We only stopped overnight as we then visited Jozani forest, so didn't get to experience the beach in the afternoon.
Breakfast was basic but adequate and perfect for the price. We also paid for an evening meal which actually turned out to be one of the best in the entire of zanzibar island (we travelled the whole island so can compare)! It was a veg pizza and beef skewars. We really wen't expecting a great pizza but wow it was fantastic, tasty and just so unexpected! Finally at night the electricity will go out however staff are on hand with lanterns, candles etc and it's actually quite romantic.
Wish we would have stayed here longer though!
