Mama Thea carefully designed this beautiful home in order to provide a perfect place to recharge while on an African journey. Comfortable rooms, excellent staff, delicious and healthy food and a garden area for yoga, meditation or enjoying the cool evening breezes. This is a home filled with comfort and East African hospitality. Karibu!

We stayed 3 nights , very warm and friendly staff , Rita and Lordiga took good care of our every need. This is not a regular hotel , it is situated in a secluded area of Moshi.The rooms are very spacious, the grounds are very nicely up kept. It feels more like you are a guest in a family's home. For example no menu provided ,instead you are asked what you would like to eat and that is made to request. The room was not entered the entire time that we stayed like at regular hotels we also used our own towels. Very nice and affordable place to stay.

I stayed at Mama Thea's Home for nearly three weeks - as I was working at Amani Centre for Street Children. The staff were always friendly and helpful (and speak excellent English), the property is well maintained and my room clean. Hot showers and a wonderful full breakfast were welcomed additions. The neighborhood is quiet - except for the occasional barking dog and roosters - but that is expected. The property is fenced and guards on duty 24 hours a day - so it feels safe and comfortable. The photos on this site show the main house - yet the guest room where I stayed - was in a house in the back. Very nice although you must climb spiral stairs to reach the second floor where the rooms are. They may have other options - Mama Thea is very accommodating. Highly recommended.

Everything from food to hospitality and service was beyond our expectations. A place to be when you are in Moshi. They were able to offer free ride from the airport to Mama Thea homes .This is a place to visit as the prices are very affordable

This was my second visit at Mama Thea’s Home and I returned to find beautiful renovations to the outside dining area and to the rooms. I always feel welcomed and supported by Mama Thea and her team of professionals. As other reviewers shared, the home is located in a convenient location to Moshi Town and for my time volunteering at a local school. The home is clean, food is fresh and diverse to please many palates, and the grounds and gardens are lovely. Safety and security is assured and tv is also available if desired. Mama Thea is so knowledgeable of the area and will gladly share tips for navigating the area for example shopping or visiting local sites. Overall, I feel so comfortable here and relaxed. Highly recommended!!
