  • Really lovely location and adequate facilities.

    "There was no power when we arrived and the generator was not working, but this was resolved two days in and the remainder of the holiday was sublime. The owner very kindly offered us a refund for the issues with the generator. All in all we had a good time."

  • Loved this property with its perfect views

    "My husband and I stayed here for a month (24 Jan to 24 Feb). The house was lovely for two people. Comfortable with a large bedroom and plenty of space for 2 people. Simply furnished in local style. The villa functioned perfectly for the whole month and we were looked after by Salum, who was a fantastic host and organised whatever we wanted. He visited nearly daily to ensure all was well. The house has wonderful views of the Indian Ocean with its constantly changes colours depending on the tide, sun and mood. I cooked regularly, Salum would take us to Kinyasini market to stock up on vegetables for the week. The rest of our shopping could be done at the supermarket in Kiwenga. There is also an Italian shop for expensive pasta, cheeses and coffee. You can buy wine in a local shop and vegetable along the strip (very local). One could buy a few vegetables, water, chapatti's, some bread rolls and loo paper in the Kairo village shops (2). Mango's and other fruit from from the beach sellers. We bought tuna and other fish straight off the fishermans boats. We went to the larger supermarket and wine shop in Stone Town a couple of times. The local village is poor but the people lovely. There are a few Tourist shops beside the house, Gucci next door was very helpful. We liked staying virtually in the village. When I didn't cook we ate at Zan View a few minutes away on the hill, also Shooting Star great place for a sundowner and dinner. The best place to eat however is 25 minutes walk down the beach or get a taxi.An Italian called Pesce Birichino, a small place on the beach. Fantastic fish and the best prawns I have ever eaten. Probably best to book as it gets busy. We loved staying at Villa Stefy with its wonderful views and beautiful bougainvillea. There was a misunderstanding about the local Tourist Tax, not sure whether the mistake was HomeAway or the owners, however it was resolved. Have taken 1 star of my rating because of this. We had an amazing stay. Asante sana Salum and thank you Stefania for our gifts and our stay at your house."

  • Fantastic Charming House

    "We spent 12 days in the villa with our kids. It is definitely a very good place for a journey in Zanzibar. What we appreciated : - The charm of the house, the garden and the view : the house and the view are more beautiful than the photos ! - The very helpful staff: Mohammed the Chef is just an incredible "cordon-bleu" (and my family is very demanding about food !) , Wakili and Kim who organised the tours for us and the kindness of the cleaners Na and Ni - The beach so beautiful - Jambiani which is still a typical village We highly recommend the villa and we will definitely come again !"

  • Sea urchins my foot

    "The whole villa experience was fabulous and has so much more potential, it's churlish to find fault. The chef,maids, gardeners, guards and Nondo are the villas best assets, couple this to an unrivalled location and utopia beckons ! Some furnishings are tired and the pool design is not conducive to swimming or safe access, rubber mating would solve the problem. We made much use of the "speed" boat and 4x4 at our disposal, Nondo being in charge of them both. The only real downer are the sea urchins which abound, making sea swimming impossible."
