Last year we went to Onsea House in Arusha. We arrived late from Kauai, Hawaii, and our luggage did not arrive with us. In spite of the late hour we were greeted at Onsea House by smiling faces and a wonderful meal. Our rooms were palatial, bright and extremely clean and comfortable. We stayed one night. The next day we headed out on game viewing safaris.
In the morning we were greeted by a sumptuous breakfast. The owner, Kurt, upon hearing that all of our gear was in limbo, loaned us a pair of good binoculars to use on our safaris.
The safaris were wonderful and then we returned for 2 more days to Onsea House. It was like coming home. When you go there, make sure to have a massage. The food was world class, and the people kind, generous and helpful.
It has taken a year of nagging guilt to write this. There is so much to say about the goodness of this place that we blanked out. We want to go back. We wish they could visit us that we might return a small part of the hospitality.
If you go to Arusha, stay at Onsea house.
