Nungwi villa description

Welcome to our tropical paradise! Our newly built house is situated on a 2 acre beach plot facing the Indian Ocean (private property). Ushongo Bay is touristically largely undeveloped idyllic beach (unlike nearby Kenyan coast) Tropical garden dominated by coconut palm trees. House sleeps 6 persons in two large self-contained suites (bedroom plus bathrooms, dressing room). 2 double beds plus 2 single beds. The spacious and airy house sits on an elevated platform and offers great views on the Indian Ocean. The house has been completed in June 2007. Solid stone house built with local materials (Makuti thatched roof, hardwood/ boatwood furniture & natural stone floors). It offers comfort and all modern amenities. 4-5 additional pers. can be put up on neighbouring plot in two self-contained bandas. Private maid is provided. Daily flights to Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar or Arusha (Coastal Air Tanzania), speed boat to Zanzibar or taxi. Check out our website (see below).

Why Ushongo Tanzania?: Tanzania is a great alternative to the Southern coast of Kenya and Zanzibar: no mass tourism (no package tours, no big beach hotels), our beach house is in front row with direct access, no beach prostitution, no hawkers or other nuisance.

Unlike many beaches in Zanzibar Ushongo bay is a swimmers paradise. You and your children can swim in the sea the whole year. There are no dangerously high waves and there is no pollution.

Ideally you could combine your beach holiday with a safari in North Tanzania. We can establish contact to reliable companies offering good value for money. We speak English! On parle Francais!

Our house has just been completed in June 2007. It is a solid stone house built with local materials ranging from Makuti thatched roof to hardwood and natural stone floors. Only for the bathrooms and for electricity we have used imported tiles and fittings. The house is spacious and airy (total size 150 m2, 6 metres high ceilings. The furniture are made of Eucalyptus and Mninga wood. Some furniture are made of defunct boats. The house has a large terrace facing the ocean which offers shade throughout the whole day with seating for 16 persons. The house has 2 self-contained bedrooms, each one with a large bathroom. Each of the rooms has one 2x2 metre double bed plus a single bed. The two bedrooms are connecting to a living room and a kitchen separated by a bar. There is also a rear terrace, ideal for sundowners watching the sun set. The kitchen is fully equipped with 2 fridges, one freezer, gas/electric stove, plates and cooking utensils for serious cuisine for larger groups.

                              Ushongo Bay is a tropical paradise with a sandy beach with safe swimming throughout the year. It is situated 15 km from the old Arab town of Pangani. Ushongo is touristically largely undeveloped (unlike neighbouring Mombasa, which is a mass tourism destination). There are no traffic noises, no souvenir shops, no hawkers, water scooters or other disturbances. Typically there are no more than 20-50 tourists in the Ushongo area (three bays, approx. 10 km). The usual movements to be seen are villagers on bicycles on the beach and traditional fishing boats crossing the bay. Swimming is possible year-round at high and low tide, ideal for children. Endless beach walks, snorkelling/diving in nearby marine park.

                              Ushongo has great potential for Windsurfing, Sailing, Kite-Surfing and Diving. There is a school/rental stations in walking distance. But since tourism has not developed yet there are very few water sport activists to be seen on the water.

                              Other Activities: motorboats, dhows, sailing boats & windsurfers can be rented nearby
