Your property is beautiful, unique and very well maintained. The bungalow on the sand matched exactly what I was looking for to live an authentic but comfortable holiday with my family.

What fantastic meal of fish, sea spiders and lobsters grilled with local spices and fruits that have made the fame of this island paradise! I still remember this sailing boat ride, the stone town market... A perfect place for those who want to make their dream of Zanzibar, become a reality... Hakuna Matata
