I stayed here at the end of the year 2012 and the first day o new year (3 nights)
The house is just close to jambiani village (nice to take a walk in village to see real life of jambini).
My room was on second floor, I think better that the first floor so you can see the sea and the beach.
The house is not a 5 stars hotel but is clean and well built. The house has rooms with shared bathroom (1 for 2 rooms). 2 rooms for floor, and on the second floor a great terrace from where you can relaxe and see the sea.
The housekeeper is very nice and always available for everythings.
My room was not so large but enough for 2 people.
Bathroom is large with hotshower.
price was 48$ per room per day with breakfast.
There is a refigerator that can be used by guests to keep water and beer and some food.
