About: Following working with orphans on the mainland (Tanzania) and visiting Zanzibar a number of times, I fell in love with this beautiful island and its people and had a dream to create my own little part of paradise which I achieved with my co-owner Kombo, who lives on site to look after guests whilst I’m based in London doing voluntary work with underprivileged children.
Why Nungwi, Tanzania:
As family and friends loved their visits here, we decided to share our retreat with travellers looking for a laid back special experience in Zanzibar. We enjoy having guests from all corners of the world and love exchanging travel experiences and making new friends. As soon as you arrive you’ll want to kick off your shoes and feel the sand between your toes in this wonderful space. We hope you enjoy our home!
The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Seconds from the sandy beach and gorgeous ocean. Own private beach garden with a chilled laid back atmosphere. Short walk to a choice of beach bars, restaurants, dive schools, local supermarket and internet cafe.
