We spent a week of our holiday here with the main focus on kitesurfing in paje. Good place to relax and enjoy great food. Staff is friendly and Janny was always eager to help out with any questions me or my wife had. They organise a complementary shuttle to and from the kitespot every day.

Cosy place about 200 meters from the beach. Small swimmingpool to dip in when you feel like cooling off. Basic rooms, some a bit dark. But in general clean enough and pretty good beds for African standards! In the standard rooms no beach towels are provided. The paid WiFi - only in the restaurant area - is not always working...

Pricing is very good for Zanzibar, also for food, which was good. Bungalows are nice, but a bit dense as you share a terrasse. Beach could be better and nicer (Paje is better), also as you have to walk down to the beach.

This was the final part of our honeymoon and what a great place to finish! We had room 9 the de lux suit with sea view, which was breath taking. The pool was so private and truly relaxing to read by. The taxi ride ( often put on by the host) was very convenient to get to Paji, which is... More

I stayed there for 1 week with my husband and we enjoyed our time a lot in this guesthouse. The place is really lovely. Our bungalow was basic but comfortable and calm, just in front of the infinity swimming pool with a view on the sea. Geert & Janna were really helpful and thoughtful.

Stayed here 5 nights on the advice of a friend who lived in zanzibar for a year who described it as a good value, relaxing place to stay.

This is a charming hotel, close to the often empty Bwejuu beach with beautiful white sand (you will be required to climb down a few steps and walk for 2 minutes or so to reach it).

We stayed here for four nights and would happily recommend it to others looking to relax in Zanzibar. The owners and staff were always exceptionally friendly and helped us with any questions. Our room was spacious, clean and funky (great showers). The pool is really nice with a great view to the ocean. Great relaxed environment.
