We loved our stay here. A friend had recommended this place, and I wasn't disappointed. Dude looked after us well, with a lovely breakfast everyday. We ended up staying a few extra nights since we liked it so much. The whole place was oozing of atmosphere and relaxation, and the beach is on your door step. I really can't say... More

We truly had the perfect experience with Dudes Guesthouse from start to finish. Helle and Dude were amazing hosts and their place is something out of a beautiful dream. The beauty of the house with the furniture, architecture and gardens was immaculate. The warm welcome and still space they gave was perfectly balanced.. We left very well rested not only... More

We loved our stay at Dudes! The rooms are basic, but clean. Just don't go there if you're looking for luxury. Dude is the best cook ever, his dinners were for sure the most delicious meals we had on our trip. The place is few steps from the beach of surreal colours. The porch in front of the house is...

We spent there 5 days in the second half of January 2015. We were travelling as a group with 2 kids so Helle proposed us to rent the whole ground floor just for ourselves. We enjoyed the place so much: the rooms are basic, but clean with hot water and fans. The living room and the kitchen are spacious and... More

We stayed with Helle and Dude for ten days. The house is perfectly located in the second row from the beach. While beach view might be something that people enjoy here it is impractical because of the strong winds that blow in from the sea and bring tons of sand. The rooms are basic and clean. Two of them got... More

Dudes guesthouse was a great base for our week in Zanzibar. It was very comfortable and relaxing and felt just like being at home. Dude and Helle were incredibly friendly and helpful. Dude organised fishing, snorkelling, bike rides and a spice tour for us. The included breakfast was delicious, especially the French toast and fresh juice. It had a full... More

Dude's guesthouse is situated 15m from the beach, you can see it from the veranda. The location is perfect nestled very close to the heart of Jambiani - which had about 3 stores, selling water, basic cooking items and clothes. It is also near to many different restaurants - Coco beach was by far the best for sea food and... More
