Our wonderful hosts Joanne and Sadru took us under their wing as soon as we arrived. Joanne was very helpful in telling us about the area and what to do. We just wanted to relax after having climbed Kilimanjaro. The location is perfect and right on the beach. There is also a pool where we just read and relaxed. The food was to die for. I am a vegetarian and they outdid themselves in the presentation and variety of dishes. I even had crepes and maple syrup! My favourite. Our suite was cosy and comfortable with all the comforts of home. Joanne was very helpful when we ran into some issues with our booking and let us use her ipad (free app) to phone and resolve the issue. The goats (Tallula & Lexi) were an added treat and entertained us throughout our stay.
Thank you Joanne & Sadru for the wonderful conversations and hospitality!
