Makofi guest house is definitely a fabulous place to stay. The food, the staff and the rooms were just amazing. They had some of the best food we had on the Island and the staff are super helpful and so lovely. We had such a good time and we didn’t want to leave. Makofi guest house is at such a good location with only a moments walk to the beach. The vibe that it has is next to none and I would not hesitate to stay here the next time I visit Nungwi beach.

The people is so kind, the vibe is amazing and the food is delicios! The location is also great, a two minute walk from the beach. It is also very quiet in the nightime - good place to sleep. Also very affordable:)

They think about everything with a lot of care. The place is so cousy. I made some friends on the beach and they were eating and spending time with me at Makofi because they also loved it. It was our meeting and resting point :D The place have swing for some fun and relax, aloe vera for burning, a loooot of nice food and the Wi-Fi was the best I had in the island. I'm so glad for having chosen there.
