Our Kimurimuri villa is situated at one of Zanzibar's most beautiful palm fringed beaches. It is a secluded location next to Pongwe village, one of the last remaining authentic fishing villages with little development. Hence, you will not be bothered by hawkers and beach boys. It is very safe and you can enjoy the beach without crowds.
The spacious villa offers scenic views over the whole beach bay, two fully equipped studios with kitchens in the second floor and three ensuite bedrooms (with tailor made king size beds and nets) on the ground floor that are surrounded by three separate terraces and a lush garden with comfy hammocks. All bedrooms are equipped with Aircon's, ceiling and pedestal fans. The villa sleeps 8-10 people. If the whole villa is rented for 2 weeks or longer we can also arrange for a private chef. Otherwise, the accommodation is self-catered only.
Guests have access to the whole property and amenities, including pool, outdoor dinner place and toilets/showers. If larger groups book the whole villa they will literally book a small resort for themselves.
The property has two guards and two cleaning ladies who will provide services every other day. We are living on the neighboring property and support with everything that might be needed, including shopping trips to the neighboring town and market. Also, there are a number of restaurants and small bars in walking distance to the house. The house has a generator backup and runs with fresh water.
Pongwe is a sleepy village which has been less affected by tourism than many of the other Zanzibar beaches. The local population are still warm and friendly and this attracts many guests to return to this corner of Zanzibar year on year.
You can easily catch a Dala Dala, rent a car or taxi with driver to find your way around. We will also help you in renting a car if necessary.
There is no supermarket in Pongwe. Good supermarkets are in the neighboring town where one will find pretty much everything needed. We will support you with the shopping. Also the house provides fresh waters showers (which is very unique for places on the beach) and includes free drinking water. Further it needs to be mentioned that Zanzibar is still a cash society. The closest ATM is in Stonetown and foreign cards are not widely accepted.
