About our home

Our home is directly on the beach - 5 minutes drive from Stone Town. Fresh & modern design with a touch of Zanzibar, offering large open spaces both in- and out-doors.

Ideal to explore Unesco World Heritage Site - Stone Town, Spice Tour, Historic Stone Town Tour, shopping, unmissable Safari Blue, great restaurants & much more!

The beautiful terrace is right on the beach - during high tide the waves lap onto our front wall. We spend most of our time here as it is our 'living area'.
The space
The upstairs Master Bedroom has AC, an over-sized double bed (2.5mtr), spacious double sinks with open plan wardrobe and a unique semi "out door" bathroom with beautiful views of the ocean. The master bedroom has a 42" Smart TV with Netflix etc.

The downstairs Main Guest Room has AC, with king size bed (2mrt), a built in wardrobe with ensuite bathroom.

Both 'Kids Rooms' (upstairs, next to Master) have AC, open wardrobe, both with double beds (1.8mtr), sharing bathroom with double sinks, bathtub and a shower.

Part of the common area is what we call the "Games Room". [It has a double bed (1.6mtr) for additional 2 sleepers (if needed), but is a small room and a tight squeeze.] For us it's set up as a chill area for rainy days with Xbox Live, TV with DSTV (cable tv), Netflix, additional Apps and an external hard drive with over 2TB of movies and series.

The open-plan kitchen has a secluded scullery and pantry hidden from sight and earshot. It has a communal dining counter, seating 8 guests, overflowing into the living room with 52" Flat screen TV with DSTV (cable tv).

Our in-door open plan living area opens onto our beach front terrace. It has a bar with an 8 seater counter, bar fridge (stocked free, on arrival only, with some beer & wine, a few main stream spirits, soft drinks and water), ice machine, pure water dispenser (sparkling and still), and a 42" Smart TV with DSTV (cable tv).
A Braai (BBQ) area with an option of either open fire or gas.
A dining table seating 10 guests, coffee lounge and a fresh water swimming pool with a kiddies slide.

All the bedroom rooms are air conditioned, including the "games room", WiFi internet throughout the house and inverter power in case of the occasional power failure.

The kids can play in the tropical garden and enjoy the shade of an ageing mango tree.

Our beloved nanny / housekeeper, Mama Naomy, will assist with breakfast, making the beds, laundry, daily cleaning, and grocery shopping should you wish.
A watchman / gardener is on duty 24/7, and we have 'rapid response' buttons throughout the house for added security.

The house comes with a mini van (fully fuelled on arrival only) to carry 8 guests, on self-drive basis, or with a personal driver (within reasonable hours) on request if needed.

The Sea Cliff Golf Course is only 20min away and we are happy to loan you our 1 x mens and 1 x ladies golf club sets free of charge. Additional club set hire is available at the Pro Shop.
