Title: It became a nightmare
ID#: 133668919

The property has strong potential, if properly managed. The location is nice. Watching the locals collect their seafood meals, while singing is a cultural experience. Bikes are available from locals for a fee and the area is easily navigated by bicycle. The second floor veranda was our retreat, with doors wide open to the house and a gentle breeze coming in.

I am usually one who gives the benefit of the doubt and hoped that the owner would make some sort of amends. I have contacted the owner and shared our experience and at this point it has been to no avail.

Myself, spouse and friends were picked up at airport with no problem. We wanted to stop and get provisions and rent a car, but house assistant and driver said that could be done the next day and didn't stop for us except to get bottled water...... travel time back to Stonetown was 1+ hours each way and we would have had to pay for the driver again! I felt like we'd been Hi-jacked

The house was not ready for guests.... It was closed up, dark, damp an musty.
The water cistern had not been filled so we had no water, the stove top had not been hooked up, the bath room tiles were grimy under foot and there was no toilet paper, beds were not made up and we had to wait to get towels and linens until the house assistant unpacked. Once water was turned on the silt filled the system and we were still without, until a neighbor (not the "in house" assistance ) called a plumber for us the following day. With a little cleaning of the taps, some water and water pressure became available, though not at all taps. We ran out of water 3 days later when the cistern for the 2 houses ran dry. Cistern was filled, but again silt filled the system and water was only a trickle for our remaining stay.

It was our intent to cook our own meals and that was indicated in emails to the owner, our friend was a chef. Because the stove top was not hooked up to the propane and there were no useable cooking utensils that went with the house (unlike mentioned on website), we had no choice but to either eat all meals out or to hire the house assistant as a cook. We opted to eat lunch out and dinner in (due to walking in the dark to other establishments). The house assistant cooks with an outdoor kerosene stove indoors on the non-workiing stove top. The smell was overwhelming and gave us head aches. Lack of water prevented the kitchen and his utensils and our dinnerware from getting cleaned and the baths began to smell of sewage. It was extremely unsanitary and very disconcerting.

I wish I had taken pictures of the dirty kitchen to share and captured the smell of kerosene and sewage, but then its not something I choose to remember.

Do not believe the all that was listed on the web site. Cook top is not hooked up and the assistance for water was not available. The location was wonderful but the accommodations were very uncomfortable.

Both 2 star reviews although posted separately were written by the same party, therefore my response applies to both reviews.
Have taken on board any constructive feedback and since this party visited there has been a complete overhaul of the existing water system and an updated water pressure pump installed which has resolved the issues highlighted.
The cook top is functioning and fit for purpose but had been disassembled for reasons unbeknown to me. In light of this I have reviewed the current local management process to provide a more robust, proactive approach to providing a high standard of accommodation that is keenly priced. To ensure that these changes meet with my exacting standards I will be visiting the property myself early next month.

“Wonderful location on beach”
4 5 étoiles Avis écrit le 27 décembre 2011 Séjour en décembre 2011
Google Traduction

The house is in a beautiful location right on the beach with lovely views os the ocean. The beach is quiet enough to be peaceful but with enough activity (fisher-women) to be interesting.

The bedrooms are a good size and nicely furnished (although the beds are quite short - about 1m80) There is adequate storage space but nowhere to hang clothes as the built-in wardrobes do not have rails. The living/dinig area is a good size and adequately furmished.
The bathroom is basic and would benefit from a mirror and somewhere to place toiletteries.
We did not use the kitchen as we employed a cook, see below, who brought a lot of equipment with him. The house has oil lamps and an battery powered lantern. bring torches/flashlights as there are daily powercuts.

We were met at the airport by Hafidh who arranged car hire, trip to an ATM etc. As recommended in a previous review we asked Hafidh to stay and cook for us. This was a very good decision. Firstly Hafidh is a truely wonderful; cook. He really should open his own restaurant. Secondly, the nearby places to eat are of dubious quality or in a beach club and very expensive. We would therefore strongly recommend anyone staying to employ Hafidh. Not only is he a great cook but he is a very very nice person who can help with all manner of things.

We enjoyed Zanzibar. We visited the Jozani forest national park and Stonetown as well as driving to the extreme north and south of thr island. We would recommend renting a car unless you really want nothing more than a beach holiday. (One minor point. I found the constant police check points irritating. We were stopped at least twice on every journey).

“Great stay, excellent villa, wonderful service!”
5 5 étoiles Avis écrit le 28 septembre 2011 Séjour en août 2011

We had a group of 5 people who went to Tanzania to climb Kilimanjaro in August. After such a challenging hike (we made it to the top!), we've decided to treat ourselves to a nice relaxing vacation in Zanzibar.

Making all the arrangements with the owner of the property was extremely easy. Jamilla was very responsive, polite and helpful. She also arranged transportation for us and someone was waiting for us at the airport when we arrived. That someone was Haffid. Let me tell you about Haffid - since we arrived late at night (around 8pm) it was too dark and dangerous for Haffid to drive us to the house, which was approximately 45 min from the airport. So him and his daughter invited us to their house to spend the night! They made an amazing dinner for us, Zanzibar tea and a yummy dessert! After chatting at the dinner table for a little bit, we asked Haffid if he would be kind enough to cook for us at the house for our entire stay (we were amazed with his cooking). He gladly agreed and he never repeated the same dish twice!

The house we stayed in was very nice, newly remodeled, clean and cozy. It's a duplex and we had one part of the house all to ourselves, the other part was unoccupied. Ground floor consists of a kitchen, living room, dining room and a bathroom. The top floor had 2 bedrooms (one bedroom had 1 queen size bed, another 2 full beds), hallway (with an additional reclining couch), bathroom and a beautiful balcony with a gorgeous view! The beach is just by the doorsteps.

Beach: the white sand reminded me of a flour, it was that white and fine! Because of the high/low tides, the seaweed gets on the beach and stays there (tiny minus).

Around: we were very glad that we hired Haffid to be our cook (breakfast & dinner). There are couple of restaurants that are near by (Twisted Palms and Evergreen), but the menu is very limited and it repeats itself. Just to change it up, we would have lunch at Twisted Palms.

Suggestions: Rent a bike and cruise down the beach, check out the surroundings. Make sure to go to Stone Town and either spend 1 full day there or 2 (much better). Spice tour & Slave Cove is a must. Do some research before hand and just walk around the town (self-tour), you'll really enjoy it!

If you have any specific questions, don't hesitate to contact me. I'd be happy to help!
Asante sana!
