Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Vanilla House is a small 4 room house of a local nature situated on the shores of the Indian Ocean ! Vanilla House has been built by Dorota Katende, an African Safari & Zanzibar Island guide and author of "Dom na Zanzibarze" ("The House on Zanzibar") book. The house is decorated in Swahili style with elements woven from the palm leaves (makuti) with typical Zanzibar furniture such as carved large sultan's beds or chairs made from cow skin by local people. Apart from rooms all other places are to be shared with all guests. There should not be more than 11 guests in the house. To fully enjoy your stay here you should be tolerant, willing to understand different culture and cooperative in the organization of time and order. On the terrace above the house in the makuti shade you can admire the breathtaking ocean view. There are 4 rooms, 2 bathrooms and a kitchen where the cook bustles about. Everything is very simple, but sufficient enough to rest from the civilization. In the Vanilla House you can, if you want or even sometimes by chance, become a witness or even a creator of a history - the content of second part of the book "The House on Zanzibar"... ... more   less
