The location of the hotel is great and you will have walking distance to the entire village, including the neighbour village, Paje.

I visited with my hole family for 7 nights. They have accomplished a very friendly and a safe non-western exotic culture. I was completley relaxed after only one night. They hade an excelent chef who made very pricy Tanzanien food. I will return.

It's really hard to find budget accommodation in Zanzibar. But Stonehouse really delivers. It's a very attractive building right on the beach. Jambiani is a very long and some places seem pretty isolated, but Stonehouse was ideally situated, and it was possible to walk or cycle in either direction to explore or find places to eat. The staff were friendly...

In December/January I was in Stonehouse for my third time. It get´s more and more a coming home guesthouse. You simply feel good, when you can relax there, watching the sea from upstairs or from the beach. Your living just right in the local village. Sometimes with cows under your window... The atmosphere is fine, food is well prepared, sea...

Storehouse blew us away! The house is placed front row to the ocean with stunning views, a most relaxed atmosphere, and just lovely proprietors. A delightful and affordable contrast to the resorts in the North of Zanzibar. The in-house food (great seafood) and service was nice and several other eateries are spread along the beach of Jambiani and Paje. Our...

We stayed for 2 nights (wish we had stayed longer) and loved being right on the beach. The staff was GREAT. Not intrusive, but friendly and readily available if needed.
