“Superb Stay at Saffron Villas, with instant 10 second walk into the water...”

We had an absolute brilliant time with our family in Saffron Villas. The staff were brilliant (chef Abeddi who cooked our meals; Emaar the bar manager; Kingi the driver and cool dude and Uzzi the all accomodating manager of everything), engaging, fun, passionate and totally relaxed.

The villa was two story with great bedrooms and it was literally 10 seconds walk to the beach (voted in 2007 best beach in the world).

The food and refreshments at Crazy Mzungo's next door (2 seconds walk!) were brilliant, good music as well and great company from other guests as well.

Met the owners Matt and Michelle and they were absolutely brilliant too, with tips on how to make most out of break.

No tv, ipads or electronics were used as we got away from all of that with the kids with football on beach with the locals, walks, swimming, cards at night and a totally relaxed (poly poly - means slowly slowly in Swahili) vibe enjoyed by all of us.

Couldn't recommend this place enough and we will be back to stay for sure!!!!

Hi!
Thank you very much for the review!
Having the "C" right on your doorstep makes all the difference - builds up the apetite, releases the stress of the daily grind and city life! We think its the plenty of fresh air, long walks on the beach and Abedi's organic garden herbs that got you glowing!!

We look forward to your return in the near future!
PS- the 2012 seasonal menu has been launched!! Thanks for all the tips!!!

Thank you for the feedback, we appreciate you taking the time to do so!

It was a great pleasure to have you as our very first guests in Saffron Beach Villa! It is a stunning Villa in a beautiful location and we hope that you will return in the near future.

With regards to the comments on activities, we are investigating more organic and Direct Impact Tourism offers that eliminate the costs of agents'commission and give more to the communities involved.

It is possible to hire Bicycles, it just depends on our guests level of comfort and conditions on the day.

We have alo been exploring more affordable Safaris close to Zanzibar to offer guests more value for money.

Best Wishes
Team Vanilla
