The house was very nice. Great views and it had everything we needed. We made our own breakfasts and the kitchen was perfect. Barry, the caretaker, responded to any queries we had and provided us with good restaurants. Will recommend!
A perfect spot for relaxation! We stayed on the roof top and really enjoyed it. The sunrise is amazing as we where up really early every day. The rooms where comfortable and the outdoor space wonderful for relaxing, reading, sunbathing or playing games. I wish there was a clothing rack to hang my clothes, other than that everything was absolutely perfect. We didn't learn how to play Bao board game but maybe there will be a next time to do so.
Kerstin is very accommodating and vas very helpful to all our questions. The flat has European electric sockets the same as we use in Norway, really handy for a family traveling with all sorts of electric stuff, like phones, iPad, camera etc.
Sahidi and Heri was really sweet and helpful and fixed everything we asked for, like laundry, transport and cooking. They also could organize trips and snorkeling. We had Heris wife cooking breakfast, for us every day, and two lunches and two dinners all excellent! Heri is very punctual and was there 30min before time every day. He is very smiling and polite and did a great deal of shopping for us as well. It is handy to learn a few words in Swahili, we had practicing a bit in Kenya before and that was really helpful. The nearby restaurants Coral Rock approximately 25 m from the gate, and Red Monkey about 50m is great for coffee, drinks and free wifi. Coral Rock I would not waste money at, unless you want to watch a football match, as it was expensive and not very up to our standards. Red Monkey served a good fish burger, and the staff and manager was really great people. We enjoyed the Crazy Monday event with great live music.The liquor is Norwegian prices, but the beer is reasonable, and they have cocktail of the day and such. Chez Hassan restaurant was great! Order your food in advance, and you don't have to wait 1,5 hour to get served, however the food was excellent! The Zanzistar right on the beach just next to Chez Hassan, was great for wifi, relaxing sofas, sunbeds and delicious ice cream.
Thank you for having us it was definitely the best spot in Zanzibar!
