Overview

About the property

Our Holiday Home Is a beautiful apartment in a private villa

It is situated on the edge of a small fishing village, 50 meters away from a private lagoon at one of Zanzibar's most beautiful palm fringed beaches.

The apartment offers with its 140m2 space, a breezy living area that is surrounded by two thatch roofed garden terraces with comfy hammocks and sofas, a fully equipped open space kitchen, 2 large bedrooms (with tailor made king size beds) and 2 bathrooms. The apartment sleeps 4-5 people. The villa with the apartment is 50 meters away from a gorgeous private lagoon at one of Zanzibar's most beautiful palm fringed beaches with crystal clear waters. Pongwe bay is sheltered by a wide-stretched coral reef that is supreme for swimming and snorkeling.

The apartment is ideal for families with children, couples and groups of friends that want to enjoy a private beach holiday with all the amenities that a home would offer. The flat is surrounded by a gated tropical garden, on a 3000 m2 private property and offers 24 hours security.

The apartment is fully serviced and towels and linen are provided. It is one of the few beach places that provides fresh water showers. For people that want to self-cater it would be advised to bring all groceries from town. We also offer shopping trips to the neighboring village Kiwengwa.

Msuli and I, a Zanzibari/German couple are living in the upper portion of the villa and support you with everything that you might need.

The traditional fishing village, called Pongwe, is located, 46 km outside of Zanzibar town (Stonetown). It is a serene location at one of the last unspoiled corners of the island, perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle and for inhaling Zanzibar’s natural beauty off the beaten track. Pongwe beach is the longest beach on Zanzibar, ideal for sun and moon rise walks.

Things to do:

Dive into the pristine waters, ponder along the endless beaches and let your soul rest.

Day activities can be arranged upon request, including snorkeling trips, scuba diving packages, spice tours, swimming with dolphins to just highlight some. Guest will generally be picked up from the house.

Take a Dala Dala from Stonetown to Pongwe (it takes 11/2 hours and costs around 1500 TZS) or jump in a taxi (it takes 50-60 minutes from Stonetown and costs around 40 Dollar)

- Car, scooter and bicycle hire is also possible

- laundry service available (10.000 TZS per machine load)

About The Owner
