Dina is very kind, accommodating and pretty unique. I would stay here again without question and recommend her guesthouse to everyone. Her staff are just as friendly and helpful.

Right on the beach, about an hour from Stone Town. Beautiful guesthouse, with outdoor restaurant right in front of the ocean. Spacious rooms, attentive staff, gracious host.

Found the place via Trailfinders, to finish off our holidays which included climbing Kilimanjaro and a safari to Serengeti and Ngornongoro. I also wanted to find a place that is close to kitesurfing spots and where you can rent kite gear nearby.
