Excellent holiday, Jambiani beaches are beautiful, the colors are amazing, and different every hour of the day. From the large terrace of the house, we observe this breathtaking spectacle.
The house is spacious, with different atmospheres to choose according to the desire of the moment (aperitif bar in terrace, breakfast with sea view, dinner barbecue in the garden between palm and banana tree, sports under the bougainvillea, siesta in the garden under the exotic parasol ...). The rooms are very comfortable, you sleep in the sound of the waves, and you wake up with the smell of the wood fire signaling the beginning of the activity of the neighboring village.
The staff is super friendly, the decorations on the beds are different every day. The chef prepares meals worthy of excellent restaurants (starter, main course and desert) with fresh fish from the day's fishing. The manager takes you to places you can not miss and negotiates prices for you (boat trip, swim with dolphins, stroll through the forest of Jozani to see the red colobe monkey, visit the spice farm).
A place to recommend for those looking for real unforgettable holidays, from the first hour.
This place is absolutely amazing - steps from the beach with a wonderful staff and beautiful accommodations.
Hats off to the chef, Mohammed, who cooked excellent meals each night for my partner and I and each night we were blown away - lobster, octopus, delicious garlic soup - it was all SO GOOD.
Cannot recommend this place enough!
If you're going to Zanzibar stop searching and book this house. We were with a group of 8 and enjoyed this beautiful Arab style house for 5 nights. We didn't want to leave. My girlfriend celebrated her birthday during our stay and sweet Mohammed even prepared a birthday cake. We felt at home from the first moment. Kim, the manager booked a very nice Safari blue tour for us, too. He even took us to a party for Eid Muhbahrak. Thank you all, Mohammed, Said, Kim, Kim's brother, all the ladies and Raphael for the pleasant contact in preparation to our stay. If you're going, don't forget to walk through the nice village of Jambiani and have a chat with the locals. It also helps you realise that there's a real, beautiful but much more sober, world behind the beach life of Zanzibar/Jambiani. Also, don't go out for dinner because the best food on the island is prepared by Mohammed and his staff.
Our family stayed for four nights in Raphael's amazing villa. We could not be happier with our stay. The house is spectacular, surpassed only by the professional and friendly staff. A special thank you to Mohammed and Saidi who provided fine dining quality meals and service, and Kim who organised all of our excursions and airport transportation.
That was so perfect stay.The cook Mr.Mohamed is worth to work in 5 star hotel restaurant.Villa has nice style clise to the beach.
When you think you have seen a lot of nice places in the world... all of a sudden you spend a week in Mwendamwima. This nicely decorated and equipped villa provides you with anything you need.
A few strolls away from the beautiful beach, a lot of privacy, your own garden and the best rooftop terrace in Jambiani. Whether you enjoy your breakfast, afternoon drinks or dinner this is the place you want to be. Overlooking the Indian ocean, feeling the breeze to keep you feeling comfortable. Mohammed the cook and his staff will help you to feel at home from the minute you enter the villa. Great food and service with a smile.... no hesitations I will come back to Mwendawima again!
Our Kitesurf trip to Zanzibar and our stay at the villa was amazing! Kim, the crazy reggae fan manager, who knows every policeman on the road, Mohamed, the king, with his world famous dishes (we miss him every day), and his staff, who made our vacation, and our doughters 10th birthday unforgettable. And last but not least Raphael, who takes care about us, answerd our all stupid questions. Respect and thanks for you!
One more thing - if you come to Jambiani, bring some simple toys, books, pens, color pensils, exercise books for the kids! They will be very happy!
