Places to stay in Jambiani
Offriamo sistemazioni semplici, ma con tutti i comfort, il nostro bungalow ha il bagno privato ma esterno alla camera. Il clima che troverete sarà familiare. Vi aspettiamo per un'indimenticabile vacanza! Facile da raggiungere con taxi o mezzi locali!!!
L'alloggio è molto semplice, ma davvero con tutto il necessario. Quello che credo renda unica la nostra struttura è l'atmosfera familiare.....sentirsi a casa a migliaia di chilometri da casa propria è molto importante.
Credo che il villaggio di Jambiani sia adatto a coloro che vogliono conoscere la popolazione locale, molto tranquillo con uno scenario incredibile.
  • We had a very happy stay, even though Corona was a threat at the background. Everything was perfect. The bungalow was lovely and comfortable, with lots of nice details that show you know what makes a stay great. And not to forget the fantastic location, almost right on the beach. We really enjoyed the guys in the restaurant, always a big smile! And on top of that: the BEST italian pizza ever! We will certainly come back!!

  • Best place to stay! It is right on the beach, the bungalow is cozy, great mosquito net and is cleaned every day. Breakfast was the best of any accommodation we've had! We were warmly welcomed and the service is super friendly and competent! Because it was so beautiful, we had no choice but to stay longer than planned. Asante Sana!

  • Nice quiet place on the beach with authentic Italian food and real wood fired pizza 😋

  • Beautiful! Our stay was very very nice. The room is very cozy and Stefania let us feel as at home. Also the restaurant is great both for breakfast and dinner: fish, fruit and pizza are very good, and also personnel is very kind and professional!! In addition, Stefania provided us a list of local tours to explore the island. We definitely recommend this place and we’ll sure be back!

    Matteo2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is an awesome Airbnb! If you are visiting Paje/Jambiani I highly recommend staying here. The rooms are great and the restaurant that is connected to is delicious. You can’t beat walking 25 meters to the beach to watch the sunrise!

    Grace2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay, amazing food and really relaxing stay

    Hugo2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Stefania and her team are AMAZING! The bungalows are situated in a small garden behind the restaurant. The bungalow that Stefania provides on airbnb is very cozy and clean. It’s small, but everything is in there. And the bathroom is across the bungalow. After spending 1 night Stefania gave us an upgrade to one of her bigger bungalows (with little see view!). Just like that! The food at the restaurant is Jummie! From breakfast to dinner. Everything is so delicious! Stefania created a really lovely and warm place! We felt like home!

    Sandrien2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • If you get a chance - GO! This place is amazing, Stefania and the staff are great, you are meters away from the beautiful beach, the restaurant is great. Next time I'm in Zanzibar - i am coming straight there!

    I'm living in beautiful beachhouse and I have two rooms to accommodate guests. One room has a view on the sea, the others on the garden. I also run a relaxing bar and restaurant with genuinely trained cooks. Breakfast is included in the price!
    My house is settled directly to the Indian Ocean. In the guestrooms are fans on the sailing and the plugs are from Germany. The bathrooms are built in European standard. The beds are protected with mosquito nets. The electricity comes from my solar panels.
    In the peaceful fisherman village, my house is settled directly to the beach. The white sand on the beach invites you for long walking. The lovely turquoise-blue sea attracts you for swimming and the temperature of the sea is very comfortable. There are no sharks inside the reef! Here you can really relax and you will not be disturbed from noise (Discos).
  • The place is extremely lovely - right on the beach and it is so close to the ocean that when I arrived I thought I would get seasick, how close it is. And it in the morning, it is the opposite - such silence that you might feel you get deaf. I wonder how this season is in during the season as I was in the off-season, but all in all, the impression is positive.

    Ekaterina2020-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! For the price this place is amazing! First of all its on an actual sandy beach which many resorts here are not (some of the beaches are very rocky).Second of all Ramazan is an excellent communicator and ensured we had no snags during our stay there. The space is nice and has good mosquito netting and finally the food! It is priced low but some of the best seafood I've ever had.i kid you not. You will not be dissappointed.

    Nathan2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice accommodation at the foot of the beach and set back from all the hustle and bustle. Place with a soul, suitable for rest and meetings. Too bad the designer of the place is no longer present to make us feel all the salt. But she still lives there and the Masais speak of it with respect and love. I will come back with pleasure.

    David2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Step in is directly located on the beach. The beach is calm and seems almost forgotten. Wonderful to calm down and relax! The host was very friendly and took nice care of us! The rooms are a little bit old, but for the price just perfect! The breakfast was lush and delicious. We’re glad we stayed there!

    Lina Judit2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The house of happiness in paradise! A magnificent stay with the smiles of Ramazan, Haji, Arona and the others, all fine blue strings, ready to concoct all the dishes we want, at a reasonable price. A big thank you in particular to Haji, for the discussions, the excursions he offered me, he is fantastic !!! Plus a fantastic view of the beach! Do not change anything in your way of doing things, I loved this spirit of mutual aid with the village! A huge favorite!

    Virginie2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Safi sana! Nice team, friendly and helpful people and a beach that is not crowded like other places like in Nungwi or Kendwa. The rooms are wonderful, very clean and my window had a sea view like in paradise. A dream for everybody who wants to enjoy the sunny side of Zanzibar!

    Rosi2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Best stay in the Zanzibar and the most nicest people who are working there:)

    Iva2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • It's too short that we've got only one day at Ramazan's house. The guest house is a gem at Jambiani with a lush garden and private beach. The room is full of space and clean. The blue and white landscape is just out of window. We spent a whole day at the beautiful patio with napping cats and kissing breeze. Ramazan's great team could do everything for us, e.g. serve fresh breakfast, juice, delicious meals, and book a transfer to the airport. Thanks a lot.

    Jambiani, Zanzibar Central/South, Tanzania

    Cozy ocean front bungalows located on the breathtaking beach of Jambiani, Zanzibar. We currently have 4 private beach front bungalows equipped with attached bathrooms. All Bungalows have private entrance and offer privileged privacy and uninterrupted view of the sea. Experience tranquil sunrise from our veranda.

    When making Savera we paid attention to guest privacy and at the same time space to socialize with other guests. Hence every bungalow is well spaced out from each other offers private access to every bungalow with attached Bath. Guests enjoy direct access to the beach and sunbeds with umbrella to relax. We now have a cozy beach bar to socialize or just to sip one of our tasty cocktails or bottled beverage and watch the sun go down. We do have a kitchen exclusively meant for guests of Savera. We dish out daily changing small menu with lot of fresh seafood in the offering. Breakfast is included in the room rate and WIFI is provided free to our guests. Enjoy sun, sea and barefoot holidays in the white sandy beaches of Zanzibar.
  • Usually i don't write reviews, but this time i have to write it😁. Savera Beach Houses is the best place to stay in Zanzibar. The location and the beach is perfect. The bungalows are spacious and very clean, the staff is amazing, the food also. But the best of everything is the host Savio! He made our vacation perfect. He takes care of everything and he responds to everybody. This attention you cannot receive nowhere else, I am sure. So, thank you for everything Savio and see you next year again😁... Asante!

    Iliyan2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Savera is a slice of heaven! Savio is so down to earth and he and his wife have created a beautiful space in a gorgeous part of the island. The room and bathroom were larger than what I was expecting from the photographs. The beach was cozy and intimate and during low tide stretched for miles. Bring swimming shoes as there are sea urchins about! But the service was spectacular form his team. He went above and beyond as a host ensuring we were comfortable and well cared for. I can’t wait to visit again.

    Brittaney2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • I traveled to Zanzibar as a solo woman and selected Savio's place based on the positive reviews. I echo what other guests have said -- the beach location is spectacular, the cottage was private, spacious, and basically in the sand, and Savio and Vera are excellent hosts. I stayed for three nights and arranged van transfers through Savio. I consider the stay at their place one of the highlights of my long trip abroad and I highly recommend this special accommodation.

    Jill2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • We came to Zanzibar for 5 days to end our honeymoon from Safari in Tanzania. We haven't even left yet, and I'm writing this review because we had such an incredible time. Really, the photos speak volumes, but Savio and his wife Vera live on site with their adorable baby boy and are so kind, accommodating and gracious. They set up anything you can imagine to do. We wanted to go snorkeling and bike riding along the beach. I also got my hair braided one day and a massage from a very nice local lady. They also arranged transportation to and from the airport. The little beach houses are ridiculously adorable and really swanky for a spot on the beach in Africa. Hot water is amazing, pressure strong and beds firm and inviting. Breakfast is served every morning and the menu changes for the day based on what chef has available and what fresh fish the local fisherman have available. The restaurant is only for savera guests which is lovely because if the other tourists knew how good the food is, it wouldn't be so quiet here. The locals use the beach to fish, kids are playing and laughing all day, there are some beach boys asking for you to buy stuff but savera has security all night and they don't come up to the property. The water....it's like a child's bath. I kid you not. A warm bath. It's a little insane how warm it is. This place is damned perfect. The cocktails are so good... And the selection is huge! The food is seriously delicious....long pause, hard stop. The food is OMG. I spent the last 3 months dropping ten pounds for my dress and now I'm on a solid mission to gain my good friends back and savera is not dissapointing. 😆 Everyone should come. Honestly, it's booked out for the next year basically, but if you can find a few days to get away from real life....it's worth the 18 hour flight from the US. Or wherever you're coming from. We will be back, I only hope the future fame savera has coming doesn't change it too much. Paradise. ♥️♥️🌴 🙌 👍

    Sanidia2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • What true hospitality should be. Thank you to Savio and the wonderful staff for taking care of me I was suffering a bout of too much fun in the sun, they went above and beyond to make sure I was well hydrated with fresh coconut water. Also arranging pick ups and drop offs were amazing and efficient especially when it can get overwhelming and confusing in Zanzibar. Of note, this beach is more laid back and chill than Paje. I would recommend for a taste of local living versus a lot of swimming in the beach (there is more seaweed).

    Winnie2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • We are a couple who enjoy adventure and we found many great places nearby. Lovely rooms and nice staff :)

    Johanne2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Everything at Savera was excellent! Savio was really welcoming. The location was jaw-dropping. The food at the restaurant was always delicious and varied every day. I strongly recommend this place!

    Carmen2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • It is a brand new facility with all the thoughtful details! From the fly nets and the daily care for the mosquitoes, the breakfast, which was brought directly to the terrace (it just needed to spit out the door and the girls were already there and brought coffee), to the contacts to the taxi drivers that brought us everywhere. There is absolutely nothing that should be changed! The few cabins Savio has are perfect for couples seeking peace and no mass tourism! We can only thank you and would come back anytime !!!

    Sarah2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • I had really a great stay here! Meriem, the two hadji’s, dj, ... everyone made me feel at home. I would have loved to stay longer. Everybody is very flexible, the place is 2 minutes from the beach and the food is delicious! Breakfast is everyday with fresh juices, fruits, eggs, ... whatever you like and desire they will make sure that you will get it. When in Jambiani make sure to go to this place you will not regret it!

    Nyota2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Very friendly place with a really nice vibe! We felt at home at once. The rooms above the cafe was great with a huge terrace. Highly recommended!

    Eva-Lotta2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • Hamdani is a great host with a nice place which is located very close to the beach, in an authentic local village. He is very responsive and quicky arranges if anything is needed, he even managed the rental of my kitesurf equipment. The staff in the villa is very helpful and friendly. The restaurant downstairs offers tasty breakfast with fresh juices.

    Uros2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • I traveled Zanzibar with two friends and we stayed at several hostels but this one stood out the most! The room was clean and we had lots of space. We could always talk to the people working there and they were really friendly and helped us when needed. I would totally stay there again!

    Saskia2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect place to live the real life of Zanzibar! Incredible place with incredible people! Beautiful and big rooms with all the comfort! Incredible breakfeast with fresh juice and tropical fruits everyday! The sea one minute by foot! What else! ;)

    Solène2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • The best trip of my life without hesitation. The apartment is very clean, the breakfast is delicious, the water pressure is sufficient, a few minutes from the sea, ideally located, it feels safe and well surrounded by a team and a warm welcome! I highly recommend, the team is present and responsive to help you organize the trip that suits you. Thanks to Haji (the server) and Hamdani for their sincerity and generosity Asante Sana

    Anaïs2019-07-10T00:00:00Z

  • Amazing house with beautiful rooms! Right on the beach and among very good resorts and restaurants. The hosts are simply the best- very sweet and helpful! They even took us to few places. We couldn’t be happier with our choice! Thank you Kamen and Miglena!

    Iliana2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Kamen & Miglena are truly deserving of the title Superhost. They go out of their way to make a guest feel welcome. I felt very privileged to get to experience their warm hospitality, taste their delicious cooking, and explore the marine wonderland right outside their doorstep. It was an added bonus to hang out with a very cool family. Truly a treat!

    Marilyn2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • This was a really lovely experience. The family are really warm but give you plenty of space and the house itself has so much character and is in the best location, midway through the beach. The balcony is extraordinary.

    Hallie2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • In the evening, Upon arrival, I went to the house to Kamen and Miglene. I was met by a beautiful hospitable Woman, showed the house and offered my help in resolving any issues. In the morning, I became distracted by the view that opens from the terrace on the second floor. This is not just the first line, it is the sea embracing the first steps of the stairs! Then a delicious breakfast awaited me - Coffee, papaya, mango, pineapple, delicious donuts, which Kamen prepared, honey, jam, in general, everything to fully enjoy the first morning. Miglena helped me with the rental of the bike, found a place where it can be done cheaper than I found. Later I helped with the organization of the excursion, when it took me into my head in the late evening ... in general, Miglena and Kamen are simply wonderful. By the way, they speak good Russian!) This is love, I want to come back again! With regards to the house: it is beautiful, African-style, incredible courtyard and very clean! Every day, Africans come to clean the house. And in the evenings, cool Music plays)

    Veronika2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • Simple house very well decorated by our guests whose asset is undoubtedly the magnificent terrace on the sea. It feels like a boat. Unique experience.

    Clara2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful hosts, amazing place, fabulous breakfasts. Highly recommend.

    Rachel2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • Frankly, I do not know where to start. We had a dream holiday thanks to these exceptional hosts who are more than nice, we feel directly at home and they do everything for. First of all, thank you for the two of you for the discovery of the magical place for the sunset, we had a good time, thank you for the warm welcome especially to Miglena who has not hesitated to wake up in the middle of at night to give me aloe vera for my husband. Thank you for the cleanliness of the house, thank you for your smiles. Kamen, thank you for your wonderful breakfast and cheese-cake. I highly recommend the address you will not regret it. If it was again I repeat the same thing. Thank you very much to both of you and good luck

    Fatima2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place was absolutely fantastic! Kamen and miglena were awesome hosts, the house is beautiful, perfect location and the breakfast was to die for! If I could, I’d just move in with them haha but actually we were totally in love with everything at this Airbnb. They also helped us get a dhow trip to go snorkeling very last minute and it was great. Seriously this has been my best Airbnb experience thus far.

    Jambiani, Zanzibar Central/South Region, Tanzania

    Our house is located in the fishing village of Jambiani. It has two bedrooms, each with a bathroom. A very spacious living room with dining area and kitchen. The house has shared use of the beach area of the Meliks Hotel, which is located directly on the dream beach and can be reached on foot in 3 minutes. The local families live in the neighborhood and with their cheerful nature make the stay in Jambiani an extraordinary experience.
    The house is ideally suited for long-term vacationers, families or kitesurfing enthusiasts. You can conveniently deposit your kit equipment on the beach in the Meliks Hotel.
    The dream beach of Jambiani is magical. A life on the beach in the middle of the village population make the vacation a real experience.
  • When I entered the house, I could not believe my eyes as the house was huge, and somehow I missed that I would have two bedrooms - just for you to understand, I travel alone! There is a huge hall combined with the kitchen! It is, maybe 5min from the beach, depending how fast you walk ;) close up is the small stall where you can get essentials to cook in your new huge kitchen. Don't feel like cooking? You can eat in Melik's hotel, a property that belongs to Erwin. But that's the place. Erwin and his wife are just outstanding hosts, but (!) they don't bother if you don't want to be bothered. Oh, wait, I didn't mention that Erwin came to pick me up. All in all, very positive experience!

    Ekaterina2020-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • very nice and helpful host ... nice memories

    Maciek2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Friendly, homely, lovely. Couldn’t have wished for anything more. The hotel itself was lovely, which we were also allowed to use. We felt very welcome by Erwin and his wife. It was a little bit hot in the rooms during night, but with a fan perfect for the price. They helped us organize snorkeling and taxis which was amazing. Very close to very nice bars by the beach.

    Friederike2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean place, a few minutes walking to the beach. Super big house and very good price! You can also use the facilities at the hotel on the beach with an amazing breakfast :) Erwin and his wife are really nice and they gave a lot of tips for the island!

    Jambiani, Zanzibar, Mkoa wa Unguja Kusini, Tanzania

    White beach sand, turquoise sea views. Fisherman's Cottage is in the hub of the village beach vibe. Being right on Mfumwe beach, means you can have your coffee, early morning swim and watch the breath taking sunrise. Feel free to join in the afternoon soccer game. Kite to your hearts desire. Or just watch with a cold glass of wine. The kitchenette is equipped for easy meals but there are restaurants close by. This is authentic Zanzibar. Not for the Resort holiday maker. Join in the fun.
    The cottage is directly on one of then most beautiful unspoiled beaches in Zanzibar. Watch the fishermen go off to work in the morning and the women tend the seaweed farms during the day. Kite surfers setting up, or for the more adventurous, learn to kite surf on your doorstep. It can be a busy, noisy beach at times with sporting activities. For those who love to experiencing the real essence of a country. This is for you. True island style.
    Zanzibar has a wealth of activities to satisfy a wide variety of tastes. From those in search of sunset cruises and pampering to the avid adventurer there is something for everyone.
  • We loved our stay in the beautiful fisherman’s cottage. The cottage is located in such a stunning location, right on the beach in a little village in Jambiani. Monica was a great host, and the property managers in Jambiani made us a delicious breakfast. Worth nothing that the bedroom can get quite warm at night, and could do with an extra fan. We hope we can come back one day- what a magical spot! Imy and Oscar

    Imy2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful accommodation with everything you could need. Mosquito nets in front of the windows and over the bed, well-equipped kitchen, super clean, proper immersion in Africa. Monica, Said and Farida are very friendly and helpful. We recommend!

    Merle2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Monica’s place is the best ever! The house is right on the beach, which is lively during the day when the kids come to play football and super quite during the night. You can only hear the waves crashing on the shore! Farida and Said were very helpful during our stay. Farida cooks and can deliver food: we only tried her chapatti, which is delicious! Jambiani is a great location to experience another aspect of Zanzibar (huge tides, kitesurfing, seaweed harvesting) and Monica’s place is the perfect base from where to start exploring! Highly recommended.

    Chiara2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderfully well appointed and decorated cottage right on the beach. Sitting on the verandah watching the local kids football match each afternoon is wonderful. There’s a great supply shop a short walk away and Said the local manager can organise anything you need but is never pushy. Magnificent spot.

    Jennifer2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • This is pure paradise & authentic Zanzibar! We had the luck to stay for 5 days and loved every moment of it from the breathtaking landscapes (white sand beach, stunning sunrises, turquoise cyan waters, amazing tides, a lightening/ thunderstorm too!) to the warmth of the local people. Everyone greets you with a “Jambo” and checks if you are good. Monica has outstanding hospitality with her team of cottage managers Saidi and Farida and the little Hai who will make you feel at home from the start - make sure you try Farida’s food! It is the best around. The cottage has everything you need and you can watch the sunrise from bed and the daily football games from the porch - a vip spot in the shade. Watch kids play and laugh with joy all day, women farm seeweed, men get coconuts from the tree and fisherman with their wooden boats and dhows in the distance. Jambiani village is charming and you can walk any time and feel safe and at home, whether on the beach or in the streets. Saidi will help you organize any tour you want - Blue Safari, sailing on a handmade wooden trimaran with captain Hassan, spice tour, Stone town tour - we tried it all and loved it all. We especially loved spending time with the locals and the children teaching them some english and math. We hope to come back as our hearts stayed in Jambiani! Many thanks Monica & team!

    Zhanina2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage with beautiful views of the ocean. Well equipped and spacious. Plenty of great restaurants and bars nearby. A great place to spend a beach holiday.

    Derek2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Monica's place was great! It is small and quaint and the front door is directly onto the beach. Its normally a quiet place to stay, however be sure to check and see if there are any events on the beach before you stay as it might be a bit louder. We happened to stay during the annual Jambiani Beach sports festival, which was a very friendly community event and definitely worth checking out if you are staying when the festival is on. The host and local host's were very responsive and helpful throughout our stay.

    Jambiani, Zanzibar Central/South Region, Tanzania

    Typical Swahili breakfast included. We are located next to the beachside on the turquoise Indic Ocean. Olamanga Guest house has all the desirable amenities. You will immediately feel the tranquility of Jambiani local way of life. The environment is cozy and invites to dream and relax.
    Jambiani is a long village stretching over a stunning coastline and one of the best places on the island to gain an insight into local life. The village itself is a sunbaked collection of palm-thatch huts and the sea is an ethereal shade of turquoise dotted with fishing boats, while on the beach women tend seaweed farms. Jambiani is one of the best places in the island for Kytesurfing against stunning background of the endless blue Indian Ocean, and beautiful white beaches. The reef is far off-shore, after ample flat water, perfect for beginners and freestylers. The reef itself offers amazing waves for the more experienced kite surfer.
  • We had an awesome time staying here. It's one of the most beautiful Airbnbs we have ever stayed in. It's literally 1 min walking distance to the beach, you have a super cute private garden with many options to relax, it's super clean, the breakfast is super delicious and always fresh and the host is super relaxed and caring. Nothing to add - highly recommended!

    Nadine2020-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • Charming place away from the crowds. Helpful host who is also a kitesurfing instructor and rents gear. High recommend.

  • Will's little paradise is just great, in the middle of the village and at the same time very close to the beach. A real insider tip is the 'Sweet Beach Restaurant', there is very, very tasty and fresh fish, 'local' and without 'frills'. We had a wonderful time. Heike & Rolf

    Heike2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • It was a pleasure staying here. Not only is it very close to the beach but the place and host were very accommodating. The breakfast was an amazing plus and was so filling we didn’t even need lunch! We also appreciate all the help and suggestions we received.

    Sonia2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at this Airbnb. The place was perfectly clean and the breakfast was huge! Both Mau and his wife were wonderful hosts.

    Alice2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • If you are in Zanzibar you have to stay in Mau place.Fantastic house and great family. We should stay a lot lot longer in Mau house.We love The village and all The people from Jambiani. Mau we will be back to your village and your house.Thank you😀

    Greg2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • We call him Mao, on arrival we were greeted by his wife, who was very warm, kind and very friendly. The room is perfect. In the morning, to our surprise, the breakfast offered us: it is complete. We also met Mao, who is just like his kind, friendly wife ... he recommended us a taxi cheaper than ours. We thank you once again your wife and you for your welcome and your sense of hospitality.

    Aurelie2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • I wondered what life was like in Zanzibar away from Stone Town in a small village. This was an amazing experience to become part of the village and part of a large happy young family. Our private room with bath was clean and comfortable with an effective fan. Mau’s brother Sule cheerfully started us with a walking tour of the village. Each morning he made a great healthy breakfast and checked in with us to help plan our day. Sule came with us on a bike trip and when we went to the cave. He arranged for the most excellent “Captain Columbo” to take us snorkeling. Sule arranged for us to have some meals at “Faraja’s” restaurant. Excellent home cooked food. Highly recommend. It’s a bit far to walk there especially in the dark so Sule arranged a car and driver. It was wonderful to walk through the village and see what people of all ages were doing. Everyone friendly. The seaweed farming is fascinating. At low tide we saw the neat rows of seaweed gardens and the seaweed drying all over town. The taxi driver they recommended was a very safe reliable driver Our stay at Mau’s Place is a highlight of our trip.

    Kate2019-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • At Maulid we were welcomed as family. We had the accolence of sharing a local meal. The beaches of Jambiani are very beautiful, but unfortunately the daily rain did not allow us to fully appreciate.

    Tania2019-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Maulid's place was very pleasant! The house is really nice and so is his family. They are very hospitable and helpful.

    Nice simple, clean house with kitchen area with a fridge, cooking essentials and more.. living area complete with sofas, reading lights, tables and chairs. Nice outside veranda for chilling with zanzibar style front garden. Beach only 50meters walk (if that!) and general amenities are easy with a local shop and other international hotels nearby etc.
    Decent size beds for single or massive for pushing together for double. Solid consistent hot water and a nice living area. Attractive views and a very short walk to the beach. Nice and easy!
    Very few neighbours, obviously a certain level of respect is expected but other than that you can do what youd like!
  • Leo’s place was a great stay for a quick vacation. It was in a good location from the beach and very secure. I would definitely recommend to anyone passing through!

    Brooke2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Leo's place is an absolute bargain. The house was superclean, 50m from the beach & has a nice little terrace in front of the door. Say "Jambo!" to the people passing your front door and they will all say Hi to you as well! I have to add that I felt very safe, both night and day. Jambiani is a vibrant part of the east-coast of Zanzibar. It's not too touristy even though there was something going on almost every day of the week and every time of the day/night. Best advice: go local! If you get the chance to meet Leo, you'll see he's a very nice guy! Don't bother if he's not around: It's easy to find 'Coral Rock' hotel with a taxi where somebody will pick you up and bring you to the house just around the corner!

    Korneel2019-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Leo's house is perfectly located! Very simple but with the shower and the kitchen very convenient. The room was large and had a mosquito net and a fan. We were able to cook crepes ourselves for breakfast which is very nice to have a little autonomy and not always depend on restaurants. The value for money is very interesting because even if the house does not give a view directly on the sea the beach is 30 meters from the house. I loved !

    Floriane2018-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Leo’s place. The house has a lot of space and was very quiet and peaceful. It is very close to the beautiful beach of Jambiani and there are some nice restaurants around, if you don’t want to cook by yourself. Please keep in mind, that the place has no WiFi and Jambiani is a bit far of from everything, so you are dependent on taxis or dalla dalla a lot.

    This clean, simple, and safe accommodation is part of the well-regarded Pishi Restaurant. The room is under one minute walk from Kibidija Beach in Jambiani. Not only is the accommodation near the beach, but in addition it is situated in the centre of the village offering a unique chance to witness local life.
    The room offers: spacious accommodation and ensuite bathroom with concrete flooring throughout. This straight-forward accommodation offers: one double bed and one single bed, both very comfortable, complete with mosquito nets. There is a powerful ceiling fan. The bathroom features: western w.c., basin with plug and shower with both hot and cold water. There are bedside tables, a simple hanging rail and shelves. Entrance doors are fitted with good quality locks. There are both curtains and shutters.
    This is a typical Zanzibari village setting and not a holiday complex. Here we have the cock crowing, the call to prayer and an occasional bicycle bell ringing from the bumpy street.
  • The place is simply great, if you like tostay in local homes rather that big hotels. The restaurant/room is in the village with small shops and local restaurants around. I immediately felt at home.

    Anna2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Abdul is a genius !!! We had the best attention on his part, he personally took care of accompanying us to exchange dollars for the local currency and when we wanted to extend the stay and he had no place he got us another amazing accommodation and he personally accompanied us to see him! It is also the chef of the place and cooks very well! Very good and comfortable accommodation with a rear exit 50 meters from a beautiful beach! All amazing!

    Yamila2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • The stay was fantastic, the room is comfortable and spacious and a stone's throw from the beach. The best way to experience a stay in Zanzibar, in contact with the local reality. We eat very well in the restaurant, and all the guys are super nice. We miss you! Thanks for everything

    Luana2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Simple but large and comfortable room, totally recommended. Very good breakfast, fruits, juice, tortilla etc ... A little noise in the morning of the premises

  • We had a great stay in Hassan's room. The place is simple and basic, but the bed was very comfortable and everything was very clean. Hassan and his staff was very friendly (Happyness and Ali are wonderful). Huge, unbelievable and amazing breakfast. Ant the food in Pishi Restaurant was incredible. The best restauramt in town! We recommend 100% to stay in this place!

    Roger2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time in Jambiani with Hasan, the place is great and well located, in the village but very close to the beach. Also the food is very nice and the house comfortable for 2 people. Communucation was also very sharp, thanks a lot I recommend it!

    Silvio2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoy this place, the location is more close to the village than to the bigger hotels, so you can find a warm hospitality for all the local people around the place. The room is clean, and have the space that 3 persons need, and to go to the beach you only need to walk some meters. Also we enjoy the breakfast, is not like all the breakfast here (two slices of bread an coffe), our breakfast here was a strong breakfast to start the day with the right feet.

    Juan Pablo2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Really good location, between the beach and a typical part of Jambiani village. The accommodation is simple and has all the comfort we need. Good value for money

One of Zanzibars best beaches only 300 m away- loaded with small cozy barefoot bars. This can be rented long term only - minimum 28 days
    Newly built studio with sunset and sunrise in Jambiani wich allows to explore both the paradise beaches and the village life. Located in a big garden and with a flexible terrace with huge sofa, lunge chairs, day bed than can be used for the night too and sun chairs.
    Jambiani is an authentic village and its beach is one of the most beautiful on Zanzibar. The white sanded palm fringed beach is full of cozy barefoot bars where you are welcome to stay in the sunbeds if buying drinks. In the evening you can stroll around and pick one of the candle lighted beach restaurants. AT low tide this area has a river that is created between the sandbanks- just amazing out there if you do not mind a 15 min walk on the sand .
  • Amazing space to stay.. in a quiet bush/ village location, few minutes walk from the beach.. Helen was a very welcoming and helpful host!

    Ela2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, very beautiful, comfortable, very homely. In walking distance everything that a tourist needs is: an excellent beach, inexpensive restaurants, local cafes, shops, money exchange. Great tropical view of palm trees. The sea is a 3-minute walk. The host is a very polite, considerate and friendly person.

    Ruslan2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Helens apartment is a 10min walk from the softest whitest beach in Jambiani. The space is private and offers a lovely breezy atmosphere. You will wake up to stunning views of swaying palm trees. When we arrived we were treated to a bowl of fresh fruit. Helen also provided fresh breads from the local village which was a thoughtful touch. Whenever we needed advise on anything Helen did not hesitate to help out. Thanks again for a lovely visit, we hope to be back again soon.

    Chene2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Jambiani is really a charming and authentic village. Helen's accommodation is very well located and tastefully decorated! The bonus: you can count on Helen to give you good advice and organize some outings, do not hesitate!

    Perrine2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Helen and Eddie are great hosts and the studio is really amazing. Beautiful design, private, fresh brise and just great! Four days have been even too short. The beach and shops are close by and the two will give you good tips for the best places and are ready for having a nice chat! And their dogs are lovely too...

    Carolin2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • The lovely, spacious studio on a separate level above the main house made me feel like I had the place to myself. The private patio was a great area to relax after a touring the island. The white sand beach and crystal blue water is just a short walk away. Bars and restaurants line the beach. The nearby village offers groceries that you can cook in the kitchen back at the studio. The house is surrounded by a lush green expanse, which Helen has managed to tame in her garden, where she grows various fruits. Keep an eye out for her passionfruit juice.

    Daniel2019-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • Helen's beautiful home is tucked away in the small fishing village of Jambiani. If you want to get a taste of what island life is like away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist beat, then this is the place for you. And yet, if you want to go out for dinner and drinks, a handful of resorts with nice restaurants line the beach and can be reached by foot. Location aside, Helen's hospitality is unparalleled. Her communication was great and she was happy to answer questions both before and during my stay. She has lived on Zanzibar for years and knows it well. She can help you arrange to do just about anything you want to do on the island. The studio was clean, comfortable, and stylish. It has an exterior staircase so that you can easily come and go as you wish. The spacious roof terrace was perfect for lounging in the shade with nice views of the village. Every evening I was treated to a sky full of stars. As with the best Airbnb experiences, I felt perfectly at home during my stay. I can't recommend Helen's place enough.

    Jessica2019-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • A huge asante sana to Helen who was all the way friendly and supportive. We enjoyed our stay in Jambiani a lot. The beach as well as small "shops" are in walking distance (5min). The rooftop consists of a huge terrace and the living room. The terrace is perfect for having breakfast and to relax either in the sun or under a shady stick construction with a steady growing passion fruit plant. In the living room respectively the indoor area you find one kingsize and one regular bed, a kitchen and a bathroom. Both beds have mosquito nets. The place is completely recommendable.

  • The most beautiful view of Jambiani !!! The place to be, perfect for a truly exotic vacation for lovers. Volker's apartment is spacious, bright and very refined! We loved the decor, which mixes Swahili tradition and contemporary design. Volker lives just below, he is super available and shares good plans - while being very discreet. In the rooftop, total privacy, crazy view, the beach at the bottom of the steps. Quiet and away from the bustle but full of restaurants and bars a few steps away. In short, heavenly!

    Stephanie2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Waking up in a spotless stylish place where you feel like home and watching the ocean from sunsrise to sunset, you are at the right place. Volker's Airbnb is beautifully designed with attention to detail. The pictures speak for themselves and come to life when you experience it. Volker is a great host. Not only he communicates fast, clear and reliable, also he is excellent in giving advise and making arrangements for you during your stay. Being Europeans ourselves, this made our trip just so much easier. It is like you book a great accomodation and have a personal trip advisor alongside. (if you like- Vokker is there if you need him, otherwise he is chilled in the background giving you 100% privacy). All in all a full 5/5 star rating for this wonderful trip and stay.

    Frederick2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Volker’s studio is a real jewel. The view is breathtaking, the decoration of high quality, very tastefully appointed, a light and modern space. A rare combination of refinement and warmth. We really felt priviliged to be able to stay at a place of such beauty and harmony. Perfect as a romantic hideaway, or for people who cherish seclusion in general. Still everything is very close. The beach is pristine, not busy at all, and there are many fine beach bars and restaurants in the neighbourhood. Breakfast and food at nearby Zanzistar (30 meter) are of more than decent quality. Volker himself is a brilliant host. He makes sure your privacy is total, while at the same time he’s always there for you in the background whenever you need him. He answers questions promptly, before and during your stay. A very discrete and helpful host indeed. And a kind and ‘cool’ person. This is one for our ‘very best of’- list.

    Erwin2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time at Volker’s place. The apartment is spectacular and even prettier than on the pictures. The area around is really nice with many small restaurants and bars directly on the beach. Especially handy is that Volker has his own driver who is reliable and can organize all tours for a good price! Long story short: unforgettable holidays!

    Marie-Theres2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • The loft of Volker was absulstly incredible, everything was perfectly clean, decorated beautifully with attention and what about the view ? Waking up in the morning front of the sunrise and the Indian Ocean has no price! Volker is a great and very kind host, I can definitely recommend him to everyone who wants to spend magical moments in Zanzibar. Thank you again Volker, and hope see you again when I will come back to Jambiani. Dounia from Paris

    Edward2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • This was all round just the perfect place!! The loft is beautiful and the outdoor space has the best view. It’s perfectly located close to restaurants and bars and the area is super chill and has a much more “local feel” compared to more touristy places like Nungwi and Paje. Volker is the perfect host and was very helpful before and during my stay. He knows the area very well and can give tips about whatever you need. WiFi was fast and as stable as it comes in Zanzibar:) I can’t recommend this awesome place enough!!!

  • The hospitality I had Iddi Villa was unparalleled. Joseph provided me with personalized insights on where to visit and activities which kept me busy during my 10 day stay in Jambiani. I felt well cared for and looked after.

Room is clean, there are tables&chairs out side of each rooms. Good WiFi connection. Kitchen was very useful, vegetable shop is just nearby. Anthony (stuff) is attentive, open person. He gave me helpful tips of Island . Asante!

  • Anthony was a super host, he was out and beyond to help us with directions, provided lots of information we needed ref: transport, bank and local amenities. He was also kind to make transport arrangements to take us to airport. I will definitely return to this place.

    Pedro2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • The place is located in a fantastic, beautiful and calm area. The host made us breakfast every morning and he was very helpful. The rooms are pretty and well equipped There were a few other guests in other room, so don't expect to rent the whole accommodation. I definitely recommend this place if you want the beach for yourself!

    Brandie2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place to stay, Ally Is a very nice person. I recommand this place.

    Charlotte2019-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Small but clean and comfortable apartment with functional common kitchen. The owner Ally is always ready to give you all the advice and solve any problems. The apartment is very close to the beach, located in the south of jambiani. It is useless to emphasize the beauty of the beach, the beautiful effect of the tides. Nearby there are some very nice restaurants where you can eat well for little.

    Welcome to our brand new Beach Lounge to enjoy the best of Jambiani! Have fun in the sun & water, enjoy a drink at the bar or a bite at our restaurant, relax at the spa and so much more! With only 5 double rooms and a friendly team, our aim is to give our guests a personalized experience and make you feel at your best friend's beach house while having the confort and infra-structure of a boutique hotel.
    TheSpot is a newly built (oct/2018) structure in Jambiani, one of the most beautiful beaches of Zanzibar. Our rooms are at the first floor (stairs only) with a magnificent view of the crystal clear Indian Ocean from the private balcony. They all have private bathrooms with separate shower and toilet, complete with all amenities and top quality linen. All rooms have a/c and fan, hair dryers (on request) and free wi-fi.

On this coast you can enjoy the magic of the tides, that change up to 4m daily and give space for beautiful sandbanks. Snorkeling, kite surfing and diving are some of the favorite activities on this coast. The village is a good example of Swahili lifestyle, with fisherman sailing on traditional boats, ladies taking care of seaweed farms, dirt roads with children playing and traditionally dressed people that are always friendly greeting tourist. It is a safe place, and beach walks are highly appreciated by all.
  • If you want great customer service, friendly faces, sparkling clean rooms and real air conditioning, look no further! The Spot was the perfect choice, the amenities, location, and outstanding staff made my trip enjoyable! I will def stay here again!

  • We stayed two nights at the Spot in Jambiani, we wish we would have stayed longer ! Clari and Stefano will make everything to make your stay the best possible. All the team is incredibly nice and helpful. The food at the restaurant is great, the location ideal. Moreover, we were advised to go to Kuza Caves - definitely worth it. Enjoy your stay !

  • We travelled to the island in march and we had a rental car for the holiday. What a wonderful stay and wonderfull house and wonderful host. We could not have been happier!! Hassan picked some coconuts from the tree daily for us and came every day to see how we were doing and if we needed any help. We would highly recommend iddi's place for anyone who seeks peacefulness (as March, it was peaceful !) and relaxation. The house is on the beach and it is really easy to go and swim at any time, even at low tide!! We loved absolutely everything about it!!! Thank you so much for you kindness! Xxx

    Celine2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Iddi’s AIrbnb was outstanding. We had an authentic experience of Jambiani, where do I start? Iddi arranged for us to be picked up at ur hotel in Stone Town for the journey to our Airbnb. We stopped at a spice tour on the way; one of the highlights of our trip. We arrived at the AIrbnb and it was absolutely perfect for us. My husband and I had one room with an en-suite bathroom and our daughter had a room to herself that also had an en-suite shower room. It was ideal. The cottage has a deck/patio area that has views over the beach and the Indian Ocean. IT was absolutely incredible! Iddi and his staff arranged for us to go snorkelling one day, it was an unforgettable experience. Then Josh (also arranged through Iddi’s team) cooked lunch for us one day. We ate meals at a place literally a few steps from the cottage. Jambiani was really authentic and our daughter made friends with the local school children who would visit her every day and say “Anna, Anna!” She and we will never ever forget our magical stay.

    Maureen2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • I was for the third time in Kombe Beach House and it is for me the best place to be on Zanzibar. The house is very nice located at the beach, on the terrace you feel like being in paradise. You find everything thing you need in the lively house - even more ! Hairdryer, smoothie-machine!!! You can really feel like home. Iddi and Hassan 1 and Hassan 2 are really hosts, passing by everyday for asking if everything is alright and Hassan 2 climbed even on the palm tree to catch a coconut that Hassan 1 prepared for us. It’s really like a five star place. Thank you so much that I could be your guest. Hopefully see you soon again - tutaonana na asanta sana sana!

    Christine2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at Iddi's house. We were very well taken care of and had an excellent holiday. Would love to come back anytime.

    Marcello2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very peaceful and safe location. It is amazing to be so close to the sea. Very well equipped kitchen. A great stay !

    siesta2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • You can't get a better view in Jambiani for this price, right on the beach, great value for money and great for larger groups and families, we wished we could have stayed longer. Nice bars and restaurants in walking distance. Jambiani is very limited on shops selling basic amenities so if you plan to do your own cooking be sure to contact Iddi beforehand, otherwise Paje is next town where you can find a small supermarket similar to 7/11. Overall great experience.

    Nikolina2019-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • The KoMe Beach house has a breathtaking view! It's located right in front of the beautiful beach of Jambiani. The house is spacious and has everything you need! When you are looking for an exotic getaway, living close to the locals and far from mass tourism this is the right place for you!

    Jan2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • It is perfectly located at a comfortable walking distance from the busy Paje beach but quiet and tranquil. The pool is excellent, the food is the best in Jambiani. For privacy choose a banda. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

  • This house is beautiful and has a view that you won’t get tired of. The most comfortable beds and showers. Staff was helping us to organize activities and transport.

    Hanna2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house directly at the beach in Jambiani, very open sunny living room always with a nice breeze from the sea, 4 very nicely decorated and furnished bedrooms with clean, modern bathrooms, nice and helpfull staff, pool a bit small but refreshing, breakfast could be better (fruit salad, eggs, pancakes/crepes and toast) and ready on time, I was expecting a bit more of a breakfast with our own chef, a coffee maschine and Tanzanian coffee would be a great addition (currently it is either africafe instant coffee or capsules). Next doors is a restaurant/hotel with good pizza. Kitchen is not fully equipped, it's only equipped with breakfast dishes and cutlery, no pots or pans

    Ariane2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • An awesome new house. Fall out of bed into the sea or take a dip in the plunge pool. Beautiful views. Long quiet beach. Paje down the way for a bit of action. Only one ATM in the area. All trade in cash so don’t get caught short. Attentive staff and very comfortable beds. The pics are 100% accurate.

    Roland2020-01-08T00:00:00Z

  • Susan's place is absolutely stunning. We stayed here for a family getaway and everyone loved the space so much. The staff were amazing as well and cooked us great meals. The place was super clean, and the view from the house is unrivaled. We could not get enough of sitting out front on the white sand and watching the dhow boats go by on the bright blue ocean.

    Kellie2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • unforgettable holidays!!!!. We travelled as a family of four , 2 adults and 2 kids.We’ve been hosted by Ame and Pendo. He prepared a delicious breakfast every morning and she managed to have everything in the house in perfect conditions at all times.We didn’t realise that they were around the house so we kept our privacy. The place is a haven of peace, the house is very comfortable and have all kind of the details. The local people around the house is very warmly and friendly. It was very good to go in and out the house every moment without any problem leaving the house always open , so the security is very appreciated as well. I would totally recommend to spend a few days in this place in order to disconnect and rest with the family

    David2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Very beautiful villa in a beautiful location directly behind the village on the white beach. Decor and facilities are super. Nice pool, good WiFi, full kitchen (with ice maker :-). Four large bedrooms with good and spacious beds and private bathroom. Housekeeper is very friendly and tidy. Few times made use of the possibility to have food made by the cook. You can indicate what you want to eat and it is then collected and prepared in a small kitchen behind the villa. Both times delicious eaten! In comparison with the price of restaurants in Zanzibar, however, it is not very cheap (€ 20 pp lunch or dinner). Points of attention that I also indicated to the landlord: there were only 2 sunbeds. We all like to lie on the beach with a book but was fighting for a bed ;-) In addition, we would have liked something more privacy: housekeeper and housemanager regularly come in during the day through a back door and fiddle then what in the house. I would definitely like to make agreements about this next time. Apart from this, we had a fantastic time at the villa. Highly recommended!!

  • Awesome value for money! Valentina and her family have built a really nice treehouse. The lodge is located quite far from Jambiani centre, even though the southern area of the town can be reached by a 15 min walk. There are some cozy restaurants to explore. At the moment there is only one bathroom, but they are currently building another one for guests (should be ready next month). This place is run by a very lively familiy, so except something going on at all times. Valentina had some great tips for day trips in the area.

    Jahan2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect relaxing spot in the middle of nature if you want to be out of the busy beach spotlight! Yet, it is so close to the beach and village whenever you feel like going. Valentina and Daphne are always so welcoming in their home and helpful for any issue or need.

    Liza2019-12-29T00:00:00Z

Additionally, we took breakfast, they were just great. Unfortunately, we were not in a very good time from the point of view of low tides, so we were not able to fully swim in this part of the island. Thank you for your hospitality.

  • This house is a typical village house. It was a bit difficult to find but Mau contacted the taxi driver directly to explain. The house is cozy and has the basics for a good stay. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The breakfast is super rich and very good portions. The house is 5 minutes walk from the beach (and not 15 as the description says :) It's great because it forces you to get to know the village and its people a little bit ... Initially I planned to stay two days but ended up staying 5 because I felt like At home (something hard to find when you travel) There were 4 other tenants in the house that I immediately connected to, we even went all one day to snorkel (organized by Mau) Mau, his wife and brother are very friendly and helpful. They are always aware of what you need (excursions, transportation, directions, food, etc.). The only thing that could make some guests uncomfortable is that the patio of the house is right at a school, so during the day you will hear many Noises of the children ... for me it was not a problem because I was on the beach all day, I would definitely stay in this house again and I recommend it 100%

    Veronica2018-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Dear all, I had an amazing time in Maulid´s house. His and his famly hospitality were great. The house is very well located inside a beautiful village next to the beach. Mau helps you with everything always with a smile. I truly reccomend this place. Do not hesitate. I wish them all the best and I hope to able to go back. Carolina

  • Mau's place is very cool. If you are looking for an authentic experience with authentic people then try this place. The house is warm and colorful. Am prepares a very lovely breakfast everyday, and he and his family will engage in conversation if you'd like. The house is in a great location and a few minutes walk to the beach. He even has an outdoor seating area perfect for drinking fresh coconut or looking at the stars.

    Thea2018-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • May and his family are fantastic! You really feel like your part of the family. Would stay again.

    Rob2018-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • Mau’s house is a place to be if you are in Jambiani! His hospitality is outstanding and you feel completely at home!

    Jambiani, Zanzibar Central/South Region, Tanzania

    Typical Swahili breakfast included. Maxi room with Queen bed and Private bathroom. We are located next to the beachside on the turquoise Indic Ocean. Olamanga Guest house has all the desirable amenities. You will immediately feel the tranquility of Jambiani local way of life. The environment is cozy and invites to dream and relax.
    Jambiani is a long village stretching over a stunning coastline and one of the best places on the island to gain an insight into local life. The village itself is a sunbaked collection of palm-thatch huts and the sea is an ethereal shade of turquoise dotted with fishing boats, while on the beach women tend seaweed farms. Jambiani is one of the best places in the island for Kytesurfing against stunning background of the endless blue Indian Ocean, and beautiful white beaches. The reef is far off-shore, after ample flat water, perfect for beginners and freestylers. The reef itself offers amazing waves for the more experienced kite surfer.
    The house is literally one Min walking distance to the beach in Jambiani village, surrounded by local houses, shops, and restaurants.
  • I stayed in Mantadhirus place and love it. Love his house... And he make great breakfast and did everything to make my stay perfeckt. It's a quiet place. The only problem here is the wi-fi connection, but than again you can youst go down to one of the beach restaurant. I can highly recomend Mantadhirus place, it's been on e of the most authentic place that I've stayed here on the island. Five star's :-)

    Vigdis2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was great, we really enjoyed time in Ola Manga. The breakfast were amazing and delicious!

    Marcela2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Every day better and better, the more you are and the more pleasant it becomes and, even if you have to take a boat to snorkel, from this house you appreciate the life of the village and do not feel alone, the beach is 100 meters away. The host is helpful and patient. It has invisible attentions to guests but essential to avoid nuisances during the stay. I recommend this experience full of pleasant surprises

    Arianna2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice, tidy and unique Airbnb, perfect for a people who want to relax. Close to the beach.

    Claudi2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful, quiet and safe heaven in the heart of Jambiani. Will has put a lot of love into the small details of his guesthouse and takes excellent care of his guests. His good advice and food (big fresh breakfast and fine sea food dinner) was always well appreciated. The place has room to sit protected under a roof with a fan and a nice little garden to relax outside. I recommend this place to everyone, as you can feel the local spirit and still be within one-minute walking distance from the beach and the more vibrant restaurants and bars there. Jambiani is for me the perfect mix of relaxation and activity. Will come back as soon as possible - Asante sana tena!

    Krista2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Muntadhirus place was a little paradise, just 1 minute from the wonderful beach and in the middle of the village. Breakfast was the best we had in Sansibar, the little chill-area with the lovely garden was very nice and he helped us to organise some trips and transfers. One of the best AirBnb experiences we had. Thank you very much!

    Cozy ocean front bungalows located on the breathtaking beach of Jambiani, Zanzibar. We currently have 4 private beach front bungalows equipped with attached bathrooms. All Bungalows have private entrance and offer privileged privacy and uninterrupted view of the sea. Experience tranquil sunrise from our veranda. Please check our other Bungalows in case this one is booked: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/21922277?s=51 https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/21862620?s=51
    When making Savera we paid attention to guest privacy and at the same time space to socialize with other guests. Hence every bungalow is well spaced out from each other offers private access to every bungalow with attached Bath. Guests enjoy direct access to the beach and sunbeds with umbrella to relax. We now have a cozy beach bar to socialize or just to sip one of our tasty cocktails or bottled beverage and watch the sun go down. We do have a kitchen exclusively meant for guests of Savera. We dish out daily changing small menu with lot of fresh seafood in the offering. Breakfast is included in the room rate and WIFI is provided free to our guests. Enjoy sun, sea and barefoot holidays in the white sandy beaches of Zanzibar.
  • Savio and the team at Savera know what they are doing! Rooms are lovely, clean, and just as pictured. Location couldn't be better... right on the beach with nothing to block your view of the gorgeous water! We loved how small and intimate it was with only a few bungalows. The staff is all friendly and helpful, but not instrusive. Savio was quick to answer any questions we had and help with arrangements like taxi and late check-out. The food is also excellent... certainly the best in the area - fresh and delicious. Our short 2 day stay felt like a week and was exactly what we hoped it would be. I recommend Savera without hestitation and look forward to my next stay there!

    Leann2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • No gimmicks here, you get your own bungalow, right on a gorgeous beach and the place looks even better than in the pictures. We appreciated the small size of this micro resort, with only four beach front bungalows that are nicely spaced and didn't feel crowded. The breakfast was delicious and the food they offered at the bar throughout the day was the best we ate on the island. But the hosts was what made this place extra special; super friendly and knowledgeable. We even got invited to their son's first birthday party that was right on the beach. Bungalows are cute, with nice tile floor throughout and comfy bed with mosquito net. Would book this place again in a heartbeat!

    Jelena2019-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is the perfect place, directly on the beach. Beach is cleaned every morning, many thoughtful touches (they provide beach towels, spray with repellent the mosquitos net around the bed, safe box), everything seems to be brand new. The architecture and decoration are well picked. Breakfast is delicious and included. All other meals on the menu are excellent. They have sunbeds and umbrellas for every guest. Perfect view of the beach from the room. The only bad side is that we have to leave one day or another... ;)

    Marie-Kim2019-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful place on a wonderful beach with a wonderful host... altogether pretty damn wonderful

    Peter2019-04-09T00:00:00Z

Every touch ,every day..make it amaizing for 8 days..i wish i can stay forever! For all of the excursion,,please talk with Savio,he will manage all for you! He is just great person and host! High recommended! Greetings from Bulgaria and Big thank you again!!!

    Tony2019-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent, outstanding, exceptional - these words describe best the experience I have got. Breathetaking surroundings, very nice and polite service, warm atmosphere. You get everything you need, including such things as fresh water supply everyday, power adapters etc. Rooms new, clean and tidy all the time. The food was absolutely delicious, such dishes as tuna tataki made you feel like in seventh heaven. If you want you could socialize at the climatic bar with other people from bungalows arround you and the very friendly Savera-team including Savio and his wife and his right hands: Anna and Sisi. If you have the mood to spend the time on your own - you can just grab your drink and then sit back and relax on the beach and enjoy the paradise. One more thing: I was there between 16.03 and 23.03 which supposed to be the rainy season - no rain noticed at all, only beautiful sky everyday:) Thank you Savio again and hope to visit you again!:)

    Łukasz2019-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Savio is running an absolute sweet spot on Sansibar. Modern (build in 2017), equipped with all necessities you may imagine, the bungalows are spacious, perfectly clean and placed in an quiet area. The bathroom is clean and very modern. You stay as promised „next to the ocean“, 20 steps and you are in the water. As we missed our original flight, we informed Savio, and everything was arranged for our checkIn at 3AM. Savio and his team are doing everything for a marvelous stay. Friendly and always a nice word or a smile on their face, his team served the breakfast on the Bungalow-terrasse and or helped with tips how to explore the neighborhood. The breakfast is great, everyday you got fresh fruits and a choice of various foods (we had the Spanish omelette and banana pancakes, really a recommendation!) For lunch, Savio is offering a daily changing menu of brilliant local food. Mainly Seafood, but always a vegetable and one non-seafood-alternative. The same belongs to dinner. Every dish was cooked in a way which doesn’t need to fear a comparison with a star-restaurant. The portions were big, always, period! Savio’s resort also has a bar, where you can enjoy nice drinks and cocktails the whole day through. Prices are very fair. To conclude our review, we enjoyed every single second with Savio. Never before we had such a relaxing stay in an Airbnb before. We will definitely come back! Thanks, Savio!

  • Wonderful place ! Wonderful hosts ! Delicious breakfast, great local tips and very nice home. Lifts were offered and hosts were super friendly !

    Océane2019-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Katrin's place! Katrin and her crew go above and beyond for their guests--and do it with a smile. Katrin is an AMAZING communicator and always responded super fast to any and all of my requests/questions--no matter how big or small. Katrin is also proactive and provides a list of offerings with prices (ex: food, laundry, massage, taxi). I appreciate that level of organization. I absolutely loved the large room, large comfortable bed, and most of all the HAMMOCK which caught the cool breeze from the sea. The electricity in all of Jambiani will usually go out daily for an hour or so--but Katrin's rooms, balcony, and hammock are somehow situated where the wind circulates freely and makes the heat and humidity so much more manageable. Her chef/house manager PDiddy is an amazing cook and cooked me an amazing calamari and okra stew with Rice. When returning to Jambiani, I will definitely stay at Katrin's place again. I highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Jambiani.

    Denise2017-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a must-see! A wonderfull house, friendly people and 5 minutes away from a quiet beach. It was a amazing stay. Thanks especially to the housekeeper PDiddy and his friends.

    Hannah2017-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • The guesthouse is located just on the road, only 150 meters from the sea. Liz and P.Diddy were more than friendly, offering all kinds of help. An inexpensive place to stay in Zanzibar!
