Nungwi bed and breakfast description

This simple but lovely rustic private home, is situated by the Union beach side of Nungwi Village, just along the coast from Double Tree by Hilton Resort.

It is set back just a very short stroll (about 100 meters) from the gorgeous white sandy beach and its beautiful turquoise ocean.

You can hire a car from Stone Town or we are happy to organise transport to and from the airport or ferry, up to Nungwi, which takes approx. 1 hour and 20 minutes.

The 3 bedrooms (all with en suite toilet and shower) can accommodate up to 7 guests.

Two rooms have an adjoining door in the middle (which families with children sometimes like to keep unlocked) – one room has a large Zanzibari style bed with an en-suite shower/toilet and the other has a large double and single Zanzibari style bed – this room has a separate toilet and shower room.
The third room is on the opposite side of the
pretty sandy garden, which all rooms look out onto.

All bedrooms have mosquito nets and ceiling fans.
As of July all rooms will have the choice of using either the air conditioning or (if you prefer fresh air) the ceiling fans.

Breakfast is served outside on the nya (patio area) in the garden.

The home and garden are set within a high surrounding brick wall for privacy.
Kombo and Ali live on site to look after their guests.

It features the local makuti (thatch) roofing, and a spacious open-air chill out banda (veranda) looking out towards the sea through the palm trees – you can see the dhows passing by at certain times - perfect for a sunset drink, game of cards, or reading.

The kitchen is of a basic local outside style – you are welcome to help yourself to tea and coffee or keep drinks cold in the fridge.

The back door opens out onto the wide sandy path which leads up onto the beach and the local bar and restaurant offering cocktails , wine, beer, soft drinks and delicious fresh fish and snacks.

There are dive schools, bars, hotels and restaurants all along the beach. A supermarket for general basic needs is nearby.
