It was a magical experience in a quiet village where we experienced Zanzibar in all its beauty and splendor. The villa is beautiful, very cozy and luxurious. The service of the villa is very courteous and pleasant. The house keepers took care of everything we asked from A to Z.

"There are 3 double rooms in the house, and a guest villa with double bed. Could sleep 4 couples, and there is a kids bed in the master suite"
"All the rooms are fantastic. The main suite upstairs have ample space & a private balcony, but it does not have an enclosed bathroom."
"Go for the master bedroom on the first floor, two balconies and a big bath tub facing the ocean !"
"One thing... I am 6 foot 3 and the bed up in the master bedroom was just a little bit short for me BUT I did manage to sleep well anyway."
