Places to stay in Pongwe
The villas is located at pongwe, direct to the beach with two rooms,two bathrooms,kitchen,sitting room and private jacuz
  • Perfect location in the middle of the village of Pongwe and its inhabitants, a splendid view from the terrace facing the sea, direct access to the beach by a staircase, improvements have been made compared to the photos of the announcement: covered part of the terrace redone, staircase access to the new beach and construction of a large swimming pool common to the 2 parts of the house in addition to your private jacuzzi pool on the terrace. House in very good condition and very clean even better than what we expected from the advertisement. But the greatest charm and the best asset of this rental was the warm welcome given to us by Mr. Boni the young caretaker of the premises who was of a kindness and an exceptional availability, he communicated his good addresses to us , advised us on places to see, restaurants and serious shops, he even showed us the basics of Swahili cuisine. Thank you again Mr. Boni for your communicative good humor.

  • Amazing villa right on the beach! Views are absolutely amazing all day. One can sit and watch life go by or relax in plunge pool. Rooms are very well equipped and nicely decorated. Chef Bonnie cooked for us breakfast and lunch/dinner (on request), which was very nice. We especially enjoyed octopus. Owner and staff are very kind and friendly and make you feel like at home. I highly recommend this place. It's simply amazing!

  • I loved my stay in this Villa which was more beautiful in real photos. The communication with the host was very good. On my next visit to Pongwe, I will definitely stay in this villa again

  • Great location

  • The place located in the middle of the island. So, you need a rented car or use local transportation to get to places. Nice big house. Perfect for two couples or small family. Great view and perfect hospitality. Thanks to Karim who welcome us so nicely and took care of all our needs. Definitely I’ll rent this place again (If I’ll have the chance...).

  • We stayed at the villa for 3 nights and 4 days and I must tell that this was one of the best private vila experience we have had. The location was brilliant the villa is clean and tidy. And best part of the vila is the great food that is served fruits and the fresh sea food for dinner. cab service Is available with friendly drivers. The support staff at the vila are very helpful and are available round the clock. Overall a great experience..

    Dayesh2018-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • A stylish, quiet, well kept and spacious vila with a stunning view. Only issue is the strong tides, so one must use every opportunity to swim before the sea goes too far away...

    Jiri2018-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location right by the ocean... Jaw dropping beauty of the place ! A house on the rock with spacious rooms and great personnel always willing to help... The best taste of Zanzibar right in the middle of a peaceful village. Words miss me to express how this house contributed to offer to my Mum the most beautiful Mother's day gift I could imagine !

  • A nice spot on a wonderful beach, a large garden with a pool to relax and a very nice bar, where you can also get good food at an attractive price. Spent 4 nights there and felt very comfortable. I only went swimming in the sea once, because there is either low tide and no water, or there is relatively strong surf and seaweed floats on top. The view from the terrace is great. A walk on the beach is great if the tides allow it, the coast is picture perfect and you can go far and reach other restaurants. Unforgettable.

    Renate2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great relaxed place

    Gilles2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is in absolute tranquility in a beautifully landscaped garden, we had the room on the first floor with a great terrace. The pool of the associated hotel is very large and great, because the tides mean that bathing in the sea is not always possible. There are not many possibilities in the area to eat elsewhere, which is not a problem but the food in the restaurant was always very good. We would love to come back.

    Manuela2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • You really feel very comfortable here. We particularly liked the family feeling. Abdul, Lilia and Esta were particularly nice and accommodating. Solomon and Petra are very good hosts. Always helpful and approachable every day. The masseuse (comes from outside) is also very good. The view of the sea is fantastic. The colors are so beautiful. You have to deal with the tides accordingly. Breakfast is always freshly prepared. The lunch and dinner are great. It is recommended to order the food in good time for a certain time (approx.1.5 hours beforehand). The rooms are not modern and rather spartan, but common on this island.

    Katarina2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • A very nice place with stunning view to the ocean. The place was very clean and nicely arranged room, food was amazing and the staff always smiling and ready to help

    Simona2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location, place and staff. Would 100% come back to this special gem. Everyone is so lovely and helpful. Food is so good and priced reasonably. Also the location blows you away, exactly like the pictures. We will be back :)

    Becca2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Queen of Sheba. Perfect balance of confort and wild nature beauty we were looking for. The peaceful garden is very well taken care of as everything else in the compound and the views and access to the sea are breathtaking. The staff was wonderful and always kindly at our service. The swimming pool is great when the tide is low and you want to swim and I particularly appreciated that they do not use bleach but a salty mix to keep the water clean. We wanted to be away from fancy tourist hotels and to feel close to nature, and at the same time being in a confortable place with good service and we found it.

    Fred2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • I loved Queen of Sheba - it is private, surrounded by nature, beautiful public spaces for relaxing or swimming in the pool and the food was outstanding. The 5 days I spent here were more relaxing than the 6 days I spent elsewhere in Zanzibar. The staff were the essence of Zanzibar sweetness - Yousef, Esther, Lily, FA, Chef and the owner Suleman. I will definitely go back and highly recommend it.

    Pongwe, Tanzania

    Welcome! Only 10 meters away from the beautiful Indian Ocean you will feel at home at Villa Happiness, or, as we say in Zanzibar, "Furaha". Enjoy your own little piece of paradise, along one of the most beautiful beaches of Zanzibar. Wees welkom! Voel je thuis in Villa Furaha, wat niet voor niets "blijheid & geluk" betekent in het Swahili. Gelegen op slechts 10 meter van het strand aan de Indische Oceaan. Geniet van je eigen stukje paradijs op een van de mooiste stranden van Zanzibar.
    Villa Furaha is part of a group of 5 bungalows, build around a swimmingpool. This group of bungalows together are named "Residence Paradise". Each bungalow is a private house, with it's own entrance and private outside sitting area. The only shared area is the garden and swimmingpool. Villa Furaha ligt samen met 4 andere bungalows aan een gedeeld zwembad aan het strand van Kiwengwa. Je huurt de bungalow en buitenruimte helemaal voor jezelf en deelt enkel het zwembad.
    There are plenty of restaurants, shops & kiteschools within walking distance of the villa. In de omgeving van Furaha tref je op loopafstand diverse gezellige restaurants, winkeltjes & kitescholen.
  • You know that feeling when you arrive somewhere and everything in the photos was much nicer and bigger? this is definitely not the case here. The house is much nicer and bigger than we expected. It is equipped with everything you could wish for. we lacked nothing. we really really enjoyed our time there. Blanche is a super nice person and has always been open to our questions. She also helped us buy fish on the beach. It was the perfect stay for us. so if you want to go to Zanzibar, book this house. It is just PERFECT.

    Jennifer2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • We loved everything about Blanche’s place. 10 secs from the beach, 5-10 min walk from restaurants, spacious apartment, nice pool... I could keep on going. We bought a lot of stuff at the market in Stone Town and had a lot of fun cooking Zanzibari dishes - all amenities are present so definitely recommend doing that! Blanche was an awesome host - the communication before, during and after was really great, timely and helpful — and she did a very thorough checkin with us that was very helpful as well. All in all - don’t think twice about booking Blanche’s place if you find yourself on Zanzibar!

    Frederik2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Quiet, good price, clean and made to rest

    Eduardo2019-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for the perfect place to stay in Zanzibar - look no further! We have just come back from a two week stay in Villa Furaha and have had the most incredible time. Blanche is lovely and the perfect host - incredibly responsive in the lead up to our trip and constantly on hand during our stay. Blanche was able to answer all our questions and organised many day trips and bookings for us, her recommendations were all superb. Erick is a fantastic guy, and a brilliant and informative driver - he took us to many places including Mnemba (for snorkelling), Pongwe (for The Island Lodge for lunch, jumbo prawns and lobster pasta our favourite food of the trip), Tangawizi Spice Farm and Stone Town (great day and night markets, also visit Africa House for the best sunset drinks). Erick was able to advise on the best things to do and see and also helped us to get the best deal at the markets for fruit and veg which was very helpful and kind. Such a bonus having the house cleaned everyday by Awa too. The villa is literally a stone’s throw from the beach, and has a shared pool which was a lovely way to cool off at the end of each day. There are many restaurants on Kiwengwa beach - our favourites were Arena for lunch (the prawn and avocado salad is delicious) and Papaya (lobster and coconut rice), Il Pontile is also perfect for sundowners (and a 3 min walk from the villa along the beach). We can’t recommend Villa Furaha and Zanzibar highly enough and are already planning our next trip back! Thank you!

    Sophie2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a wonderful stay in Blanche’s beautiful bungalow. The design of the bungalow is so stylish and comfortable. Blanche was so sweet and helpful with everything. We enjoyed swimming in the pool, cooking in the kitchen and walk at the beautiful beach. All in all we had a perfect stay and beginning on our vacation. Sara & Joseph

    Sara2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Very beautiful lodge in a very beautiful place, the Host Blanche is very kind and she help you with everything you need, I apreciated a lot her service.

    Denny2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Communication during booking was excellent and Blanche had an answer to every question we had. The villa lies in a bit quiet part of Kiwengwa direct at the beach. It is very clean and good maintained. Blanche was very good available for help and advice during our stay. Also the driver Erick is someone you can trust. Drives carefully and is available for help or advice. Be aware of the fact that this isn’t a resort but a villa amongst local zanzibar people. Oh, and Good to know is that there is no ATM around so make sure you have enough cash with you when you come. We were proud to be the first Dutch visitors, and can recommend it to everybody! Thank you Blanche and hopefully we’ll meet again!

    Guy2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • The space is gorgeous and super clean! There is an in house cleaning lady that comes every day. She is very polite and leaves everything super clean. There is also a gardener who enters the gate and premises at different times throughout the day- so don’t be alarmed. The host, Blanche, is great with communication and recommendations. She was even great about helping us get a few items for our space on our arrival day. Erick, the driver, was awesome as well!! We used his services for transfer from and to the ferry. He is great with pointing out certain things that are good to know about the island. He too was very kind. The pool is shared with neighboring residents- as mentioned by Blanche. The neighbors are private and respect your space. The outdoor space is nice and relaxing. Blanche’s space is exactly as described. Kawengwa Beach is nice and there are some good places to eat. The tide is something that we’ve never experienced before. Low tide starts at night and it’s almost as through the ocean itself disappears far out until about 3. Not sure if this is a natural occurrence during winter only- but it is something to keep in mind for September. The weather was spectacular!!! We truly enjoyed Papaya and the restaurant next door. Drinks on the pier were good too and offer a spectacular view. Heads up for The ”Beach Boys” trying to make some money- they can be pretty persistent. However, they are all friendly and trying to receive your support . We enjoyed several activities such as snorkeling, prison island, swimming with turtles and the spice tour. Most things are about 45 min- an hour away. We highly recommend exploring the island. We loved Zanzibar and we will most definitely be back to this beautiful island.

    The apartment is situated directly on the beach, facing the Indian ocean. Recently built, it's a mix of Italian and Swahili style. It features a large kitchen, 1 double room, 2 bathrooms with showers, AC in the bedrooms, private entrance from the beach, garden, and 24 hours internet and security. On top of this you have an amazing 60 sqm terrace on the rooftop! Do you need two rooms room? Here it is: https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/27864810?s=51 Can't find the dates? Just ask me directly :)
    Quiet spot with maximum privacy and outstanding view from private terrace, garden and room. It's a clean, modern space, unique in Kiwengwa Zanzibar.
    Surrounded by palm trees, walking distance to the nearby restaurants and well stocked supermarket. We are 10 mins walking distance from from bigger hotels and restaurants, that means that you won't be hassled by beach boys and crowd.
  • We had a wonderful time at surfescape ! After reaching the roof of africa and a camping safari surfescape was the perfect getaway to rest and enjoy zanzibar island. Beachfront, with the frontyard was beautiful! Marco our host was there for our everyneed and to give great recomandations! He also organised for us, an amazing home cook service, transport, some grocery pick up and activities at very fair price with great clientele service ! He was helpful and considerate and so was the staf! Grocery store and italian importation grocery store nearby. Many great restaurents and bar nearby! A great one that deliver! We had this little space on the beach 5 minute walk from everything wich was intimate, peacful and quite without being bothered by vendors on the beach. P.S. kind of impossible to withdraw money or pay with creditcard unless in Stonetown or at the airport (an hour / hour and half away) We recomand the perfect retreat at surfescape ! Thanks again for everything Marco!

    Myriam2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • The stay at Marco totally exceeded our expectations. A unique apartment literally at the foot of the beach, a kindness and an impeccable presence, thank you!

    Juliette2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed staying at Marco & Niki’s place. It’s ON the beach (one of the best beaches we ever saw) and staff was super helpful. Big recommendation from us. Special thanks to Alice!

    Simba Beach is right on the beach with a very chilled and comfortable atmosphere! You feel like at "home". The rooms are clean, simple equipped but very comfortable, you can see the sunrise and the ocean from your window! Just one step out of your door and you are walking on a fine and white coral sand! Enjoy the real Zanzibar life with us!!! KARIBUNI SANA
    SIMBA BEACH is an alternative way of being a tourist in this magic equatorial island. Simba Beach is a charming guest house right on Kiwengwa beach on the east coast of the island. It is about 50 km from the airport and the capital Stone Town. It is easily reached with about 50 minutes to transfer on paved roads. On request we provide also a transfer service from/ to the airport or from/to the harbor. After years of experience in the hospitality business on the Spices Island, we decided to take it a step further and set up our own B&B. Simba Beach consists of 8 rooms all facing the sea and situated right on the beach. Our rooms are all double and two of them are triple room. All have four-poster bed with mosquito net, bedside tables, wardrobe open, table and chairs, ceiling fan, private bathroom and veranda. In addition, all rooms have tiled floors. Simba Beach wants to be a structure ECO-Friendly, as the rooms are not air conditioned, but are naturally cooled by the sea breeze coming in through the glassless windows, which are obviously all protected by mosquito nets. At the Simba Beach is also available the Restaurant, with à la carte menù, and the Bar, both with an amazing ocean view. If you are not into travel lodges and want to experience the local culture, discover the real Zanzibar and its traditions, and if your idea of travel is to relax and explore at the same time, then this is the place for you. In our family-run guest-house will make you feel at home and will personally take care of any aspect of your holiday. ZANZIBAR is a wild, luscious island, full of exciting places to discover, a fascinating corner of Africa that hits you right in your heart, a place where you can still feel the magic legacy of the sultans’ kingdom, where different cultures and heritages meet and whose white sand beaches and sea tides mesmerising rhythm will enchant you… Come and discover the pure and untouched beauty of Nature, the smile of its warm people, the fragrance of its spices and its breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.
  • Very nice and calm place to chill out and to have nice long walks on the beach. Very clean and well organized, great Italian food to taste!

    Peter2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot to enjoy the sunrise and swimming, staff were fantastic and accommodating.

    Nadine2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Simba is a very cool place to stay. Chantal and Marco where always around to help when ever needed. They have created an amazing family like environment which is warming and down to earth. The restaurant staff are friendly, polite and even offer a few Swahili lessons if you ask. The rooms are kept clean and tidy. If you looking for a place where you want to just be yourself and not feel judged Simba is the right place for you.

    Patrick2019-12-14T00:00:00Z

    A house with a typical Zanzibarian character, with a beautiful terrace, garden and a jetty over the Indian Ocean, which can be seen from the windows of the bedroom. In the nearby neighborhood, a charming local family with five children, dogs and several hens is living. The house is by the beach, which disappears when there is a high tide. Ideal for walks, exercise and sunbathing when there is low tide. Very near to the house there are two restaurants with swimming pools: Marafiki and ZanBluu.
    This is very quiet and calming place hidden a little bit in the garden/forest. From the main road it’s 10 min walk on the rough road, sometimes it can be crossed by elephant shrew (Zanzibar elephant which looks like a guine pig with a tale and trunk). There are plenty of small, beautiful, very exotic birds in bushes and on the trees.
    I love this place because of healing nature, turquoise tides, noise of the Ocean when it breaks it waves on rocks and changing colours of the water, sky and garden. You cannot get bored.
  • Mila is a lovely friendly person.

    Diana2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Our 2 days a Mila’s place was wonderful. Great resorts and restaurants nearby, amazing views, and a very helpful and welcoming host. Overall, amazing value. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are visiting Zanzibar.

    Samuel2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Milla’s home is exceptionally stylish and the views of the sea are stunning! I spent 8 days there and had such a lovely stay, Milla is an amazing host, always warm, generous and with a great sense of humour. I loved our chats and the yoga / chakula Sunday was a highlight: Milla’s beautiful & healthy food combined with yoga classes looking out onto the Indian Ocean was unforgettable! She also organises boutique tours of the Spice island which are completely unique and come highly recommended. I loved waking up to the sounds of the sea, and it was great to go for swims at the Zanbluu hotel amazing pool 1 min walk away. You will love her place, it’s an absolute gem!

    Clementine2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • This was unexpectedly one of the coolest AirBnBs I have stayed at. The house is tucked on the beach and even more stylish than the photos make it seem. You are in a nice location away from most tourists but there are nearby resorts in case you want to check that out for dinner and a drink. There is a really cool blue hole with a lot of fish you can free dive into behind her house that I dropped my camera into. it was helpful that I had a car because there is a lot to explore around (caves, forests, etc), and Mila is a guru in letting you know what is cool to check out. She even rescued a Bush Baby from the road while I was there and we fed it mangos and durian until it came back to health. I had a lovely time chatting with Mila here and was grateful she connected me with a friend to stay with in stonetown after I left her place. Thanks my friend.

    Patrick2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • Do you want to get lost? Do you wish to gaze with empty mind to reef barrier, breaking waves? Would you like to have a simple yet meaningful conversation? Then this is a place for you. If I have to object on something, it would be Mila’s unwillingness to commercialize on her knowledge and attitude. I will be coming back if Mila will let me.

    Grant2019-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Mila’s place is fantastic if you love nature and a secluded spectacular beach. Her house is beautiful and she makes you feel right at home with a huge tropical fruit platter and tips on the best places to see around. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will be back. Don’t miss out on this lovely guesthouse!

    Aurelie2019-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • Mila's place was even better than expected. The house is beautiful and spacious and right on the water. It feels secluded but is walking distance from a few restaurants. I had a few very relaxing days here and hope to visit again.

  • The stay at the Baridi. Villa was very pleasant, quiet location but a stone's throw from the sea, the girls who take care of the place are very kind and nice, highly recommended, next time!

    Daniela2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • Ally is kind and always helpful, she didn't miss anything, the girls working inside the villa are exquisite. The beach is a two minute walk away in a very quiet area even at night. Absolutely to recommend if you want to stay at kiwengwa come to Ally and you'll be fine !!!! :))

    Cristian2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Baridi Villa! The room and the bathroom are spacious, impeccable cleanliness. Every morning the bed is redone and flowers and decorations are added. Towels changed every 2 days even without putting them on the ground like in hotels. Top breakfast! Every morning the girls prepare chapatis, pancakes and pancakes. Fresh mango juice is served. The apartment is located 2 minutes walk from the beach, go down a small road and find us immediately on the sand. Highly recommended!

    Alessia2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • We had a good stay. The room is basic and African style. The fans are not that powerful which is bad because there is no A/C. Bath was clean and good. Breakfast was freshly made and quite some things to choose from. Considering the room this Airbnb is a bit too pricey. We‘ve had way cheaper rooms with same conditions all over Zanzibar.

    Adrian2019-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • I want to thank the managers Alli and Thomas for the wonderful reception. The guys solved all the questions quickly and in our favor. Thomas drove us to the village for a sim card, and Allie was bargaining with the owner of the scooter, which we decided to rent. Thank you Sarah for the delicious food! Rooms in African style. With all the consequences. Before booking, carefully look at the photos to see if this is suitable for you. In addition, probably a little stifling. But this is for someone like. The villa itself stands on a small elevation. To get to the beach, you need to go down 80 meters on a rocky path. Look at your feet. Behind the villa are several paid loungers in one of the beach bars. You will be shown where.

    Kirill2019-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • We were 4 weeks. We went with some uncertainty for being "The Africa". And we really found a place where we We feel like in my house. The exquisite breakfast. Emphasize the cleanliness of the place and the hospitality provided by the staff. I pointed out that I had a small accident 2 days before returning. I had all the necessary attention from both Ally and the girls. I only have words of thanks. to highlight the beach is 100mts from the accommodation. Take into account the phenomenon of tides. I recommend the place 100%. The staff of 10.Asela and Fati two people Excellent, willful, with a smile I only have one Word, Thank you. Zanzibar I miss you. Until the next vacation.You.Akunamatata

  • We wanted a comfortable holiday, but also quiet and safe. Alice is an exceptional host. Answered in business hours within 15 minutes. The house is 30 meters from the beach, the house is equipped with sunbeds that are taken to the beach on request. Alice organized our vacation. In Zanzibar you can move on foot or by taxi. Just asking was immediately solving our needs. Spacious, comfortable house. Every day was cleaned (even the dishes and crockery of our breakfasts). We found water in the fridge and fresh fruit of excellent quality. Near two supermarkets. Restaurants on the beach and a restaurant that brings home pizzas, salads etc. Supplied with a telephone sim for emergencies, a good WIFI. Well maintained pool. The neighboring houses are inhabited by Italians living in Zanzibar. The agency organizes through a partner (very prepared) the classic trips, but also customized and this to strongly recommend the difference.

  • Alice is a wonderful host.. the house has been done up very tastefully and is very neat and clean... Pool is right at the door steps and the beach is hardly 50 metres from the house.. Sule the caretaker is also very friendly and helpful.. strongly recommended for those looking for a home away from home quiet and peaceful... Cheers :-)

    Ravinder2018-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Ideal for families, the pool is beautiful, the terrace is very nice and the house is top nothing to say

    Olivia2018-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time in Villa Jiwe. A very pleasant villa embellished with a superb swimming pool. The villa is close to a beautiful beach and near several restaurants. We especially appreciated the hospitality of Suleiman, the manager of the Villa and the kindness of the people around.

    Camille2018-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and nice apartment/villa, with a lovely pool. Just short walking distance to restaurants. And a wonderful beach. Very nice and polite wellcome.

    Peter2018-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • This place was exactly what they said it is and more. We loved the place for its location and cleanliness. We felt 100% at home here. Thank you, Zanzibarhouse!

    Carolyn2018-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • The zanzibar houses agency work excellent. Strict appointments and are almost 24/7 reachable. We had some good experience with everyone. Friendly staff. Parking space around the corner and a beach on 50 meters of the house. Perfect place to stay.

    Anass2018-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Villa Jiwe was all we expected it to be and then some. It is located right on the beach at Kiwengwa, a lovely spot on the west side, close to many excellent restaurants and small shops. The area is a small enclave of Italian expatriates, located right in the heart of the small village. We felt very safe there, and we highly recommend the place for any couple or small family looking to get away from it all, yet be close enough to all the attractions that make Zanzibar a happening place. P.S. Bring lots of candies for the numerous children in the area.

    Kiwengwa, Zanzibar North, Tanzania

    Our cozy one bedroom apartment is situated in our Kimurimuri Villa next to one of Zanzibar's most beautiful palm fringed beaches. It's the perfect place for nature lovers who want to inhale Zanzibar's beauty and hospitality outside the 'standard' hotel walls but not miss out on comfort. We are a small local family business and will help you experiencing the real Zanzibar. Pongwe is one of the last remaining authentic fishing villages with very few resorts/lodges. It's very safe and not crowded.
    The cozy one bedroom apartment offers a living area with scenic views over the whole beach bay, a fully equipped kitchen in the second floor and one en suite bedroom (with tailor made king size beds, mosquito nets, air conditioning and ceiling fans) in the ground floor with terrace leading into the lush garden with pool. The apartment sleeps 2-3 people. The Kimurimuri Villa features in total three separate apartments. Thus, facilities will have to be shared with fellow guests. However, the property is very private and spacious. Our lush tropical garden invites guests to relax and to do simply nothing. We have lots of hammocks and swings that allow you to watch the turquoise tides of the Indian Ocean, the swaying coconut trees and the beautiful butterflies while listening to the humming sounds of the many colorful birds. Our deep water pool is an excellent place to have a dip to cool down, relax with family, or simply unwind in the peaceful surroundings. Our Kimurimuri garden also features a spacious outdoor area for barbecuing, dining and socializing. Included in the price: • 24 hours security • Free grocery shopping trips • Free drinking water • Cleaning service • Wi-Fi (up to 10 GB per week) (Additional data needs to be paid separately) • Air conditioning We also offer: • Organizing Island trips and taxi services • Scooter and car rental services
    Pongwe village is a sleepy village which has been less affected by tourism than many of the other Zanzibar beaches. The local population are still warm and friendly and this attracts many guests to return to this corner of Zanzibar year on year. The beach is very tranquil beside the calm blue waters of the Indian Ocean. It's the longest coconut fringed beach in Zanzibar. The beach is perfect for long walks and swims. The whole beach is protected by an offshore reef which keeps the inner waters calm and safe. Be aware of strong tides. Water levels will be the highest around new and full moon.
  • Ina and Msuli are super hosts. Their apartment is just a step away from the beach, in a quiet part of Pongwe. The apartment is very spacious and clean. There are several restaurants nearby where you can eat. Definitely recommend this accommodation :-). The perfect place to relax and relax.

    Zuzana2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location and super nice place

    Arseneau2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful relaxing stay at Ina’s and Msuli’s beautiful property with a lot of space and nature at hand. For my family this was one of the best place to chill on Zanzibar, far away from crowds and loud music. Great hosts. Very helpful and gave us some really good insider tips. Totally recommend this piece of heaven!

    Wojciech2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay in Kimurimuri, Ina and Msuli's Zanzibarian oasis. Everything was clean and exactly as described in the photo's. Check in was effortless, Ina was there to give us a little tour and help us set up the wifi. They had cleaning staff come in every couple of days during the week we where there to replenish toilettries and towels as well and empty the bins in the kitchen. We had everything we needed in order to cook up some meals in the apartment yet there are several lodges and restaurants within walking distance that we're seemingly always open.Msuli was very helpful in picking up fruits and veggies for us as we had a hard time finding some in Stonetown before our check in. The shuttle service that we set up through Ina with the their trusted driver Suba was very affordable and he even stopped to wait on us while we picked up some groceries on our way from Stonetown to Pongwe.We used the same service to do some excursions (which Msuli set up for us) and to get from the Apartment to the airport at the end of our stay. The place was relaxing and the security guards or cleaning staff are always present yet very discreet, should you need anything. Ina was super quick to respond to all my messages and we had some great chats with her throughout our stay. I honestly loved my stay here. We had the place all to ourselves, which was an added bonus and the beach is right outside your door. The sand bar provides swimming that is wonderful for children as the water is shallow for a very long stretch. The apartment grounds are a wonderful place for children to play with a parent's peace of mind that they cannot venture too far as the entire complex is fenced in and gated with 24hr security. It was just the relaxation we were craving. Ina and Msuli provide a safe and enchanting home base from which to explore the island. I highly recommend them as hosts.

    Audrey2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Secluded, paradise-like place. We had a resourcing time at Ina's and Msuli's. Both were helpful to get advice on the close-by supermarket or the activities in the area. The limited number of rooms makes it easy to enjoy the pool and the apartment's terrace.

    Alban2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • We really liked Ina's accommodation. In addition to the beach on the "Rock Island", you could also easily reach and use the beach next door. Very nice communication. Very quiet

    Sascha2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Kimurimuri is a joy all around. A comfortable, 2-story apartment with a clean, functional kitchen located in a secluded cove along Zanzibar's eastern shore, Kimurimuri offers the opportunity to unwind and relax as few places could. That said, the amenities of the place itself are matched... if not exceeded... by the hospitality of your hosts. Transportation to-and-from Stone Town, as well as offers of drives to go shopping or see the natural beauty of the island, are conveniences that can't be overrated. One recommendation to keep in mind: it is best to do your grocery shopping in Stone Town first to stock up for your stay. Enjoy the nearby restaurants within walking distance of your apartment, take sunrise/sunset walks on the beach just outside your front door, or choose to do as little as you want to - Kimurimuri is worth the trip.

    John2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Ina and Msuli are wonderful hosts and lovely people. They were quick to reply to our questions, organised our airport transfers and took us shopping for groceries. The Airbnb is beautiful and the perfect place to relax and switch off. Thank you for a great experience!

  • Perfectly located house. The responsiveness of Ina and Muesli is great, they are very welcoming and the staff very friendly. The location allows you to tour the surrounding resorts for catering. Top stay Thank you

    Loïc2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • The loft is a great airy space with everything you need. You have great view over the garden and ocean. It was really clean and it was a great place to take our kids. The private swimming pool kept them busy. There is a very good restaurant just next door and Ina helped us to get some seafood grom a local contact. Ina was really friendly and was always willing to help in any way. I can recommend this beautiful place.

    Rian2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great new appartement at a really nice beach in pongwe. We have been the first guests at the appartment and enjoyed the bedroom on top with amazing views of the beach, the pool and the cozy places around the Pool and beach to relax. Communication with Ina and Msuli was was easy and they organised everything we asked for (transport, snorkeling, fish..)

    David2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Kimurimuri is the perfect place in Zanzibar. A beautiful and quite desert beach, a nice coral stone house with all the Western comfort, always someone helping you when you need something or want to organize a tour, and definitely an easy way to discover Zanzibar people and culture. Ina and Msuli are such nice hosts, always present to be sure everything is ok in the house, to organize tours in the island, or simply to discuss about Africa. A wonderful alliance between easy going African culture and Western committment, where it matters (safety, cleanliness...). We spent 8 days in their house with our 3 children (17,14 and 8) and each of us ends the travel with wonderful memories, partly thanks to Zanzibar but mostly thanks to Ina and Msuli. A great experience. Finally note that the airbnb website description perfectly reflects what you get on site.

    Marion2018-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect communication with host Ina prior to our arrival. Wonderfull house and location. Spotless clean and eye for detail. Everything in place. Very kid-friendly. Even though we were not lucky at all with the weather (full bloem rain season) we had a wonderfull stay! Would definitely come back!!

  • Beautiful place, perfect service! Realy recoment!

    Martin2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Surfescape beachfront apartment was amazing, right on the beach, comfy beds, strong Wi-Fi! It was the best airbnb of the Island hands down. I can absolutely recommend to anybody. Thanks Marco and the all crew!! Wish to be Back soon!

    Giovanni2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing week in Kiwengwa! We really enjoyed our stay, the location is beautiful, the appartement really cute and people from the surf escape are so available for us ! Marco always answered very fast to our messages. He was very understanding and arranging when we had a credit card issue and couldn’t get cash anymore (everything works with cash in Zanzibar). Alice was so available when we needed something at the appartment and had really good advices for excursions and restaurants, she’s lovely ! And finally Suleiman our driver and excursion organizer was always on time, always very joker and always Hakuna Matata ! You will have a good time with him ! If there was a little negative point to talk about, I would just say that the place is a bit wet, so there is a kind of wet smell inside sometimes. But it’s not such a big deal. (There is a lot of wood around which probably absorbs the sea water) Thank you again to all the team, we highly recommand this place which has actually a very good price and an amazing view. We would love to come back some day!

    Jeanne2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • Marco was an incredible host. Super chilled and very professional. His local knowledge helped us to get the most out of our 5 nights, making the Kiwengwa leg of our Zanzibar journey extra memorable. Our apartment was very clean and was cleaned every day. All his staff are super friendly and ready to help out. The aircon in the rooms were a saviour at night and the fridge/freezer kept my Kilimanjaro Beers nice and frosty! Highly recommended if you're in the area and looking for comfort and privacy.

  • Very kind staff, very clean and peaceful. Good spot for people who know a bit about Zanzibar or are independent.

    Matylda2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place . Impeccable cleaning. The house with a great decoration, very cozy. And the pool area is a little paradise. I would definitely repeat it. It couldn't be prettier.

    Laura2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Babu is wonderfully quaint and charming! The pictures are exact, though of course in person was an even better treat! Carola and Mado have truly put beautiful touches everywhere at Kamili Apartments - from Zanzibari woodwork to colorful upholstery and artwork. The grounds are stunning with the frangipani and bougainvillea flowers and other landscaping touches too. The pool is wonderfully relaxing and the staff members are very kind and responsive! When the water heater had some issues, was moved to Casa Mambo and WOW another beautiful spot! Casa Mambo has gorgeous views of the ocean, sunrise and the night sky and is more spacious for those preferring a non-studio (Casa Babu) or traveling with a family. Just a quick walk down to the beach and even into town, I loved being here and hope to be back again for more wonderful Zanzibar memories! Thanks Carola & Mado!!

    Elizabeth Moreau2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • We very much enjoyed staying at Casa Babu! Carola, Mado, and their staff were incredibly helpful and supportive. The place has good wifi, hot showers, and is separate from the rest of the rooms for some peace and quiet. We would definitely stay there again!

    Megan2019-09-08T00:00:00Z

    A house with a typical Zanzibarian character, with a beautiful terrace, garden and a jetty over the Indian Ocean, which can be seen from the windows of the bedroom. The house is by the beach, which disappears when there is a high tide. Ideal for walks, exercise and sunbathing when there is low tide. Very near to the house there are two restaurants with swimming pools.
    This is very quiet and calming place hidden a little bit in the garden/forest. From the main road it’s 10 min walk on the rough road, sometimes it can be crossed by elephant shrew (Zanzibar elephant which looks like a guine pig with a tale and trunk). There are plenty of small, beautiful, very exotic birds in bushes and on the trees.
    I love this place because of healing nature, turquoise tides, noise of the Ocean when it breaks it waves on rocks and changing colours of the water, sky and garden. You cannot get bored.
  • Mila is a very good host, and she has plenty of hint about Zanzibar she can share with you. The house in Kewingwa is completely outstanding. We love it.

    Rudy2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 3 days at Mila's place. The space is very clean and elegant. It is, as described, right on the beach, so we enjoyed very much bathing in the ocean every morning. The place is very relaxing, Mila's dogs are very sociable but without disturbing and we also had the pleasure of watching little monkeys ( Bush babies) coming to eat fruits on the terrace. The location is very good especially for people who like to enjoy their privacy, but also prefer to have a place close by, where they can have lunch or drinks. Mila was very helpful providing us everything we needed, and we also very much enjoyed her Sunday lunch. Thank you Mila!

    Anca2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Mila's place is beautiful, nice porch with wonderful outdoor seating arrangement in the shade and nice location as well. Mila serves a huge breakfast with plenty of fruits, she's usually around and if not then her helper Jescar is and both are very informative and friendly. We enjoyed playing Bao very much.

    Paschazia2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation of Mila is a real dream! A nice, very large and clean room with stylish decor invites you to relax. In general, the entire accommodation convinces through the furnishing and the attention to detail. Especially the terrace overlooking the sea, on the morning the best breakfast, we had in Zanzibar, is served, every morning a satisfaction and a smile on the face. Mila is incredible! Super nice, uncomplicated, a great cook, a great tour guide. Definitely recommended to unwind.

    David2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Mila - what a lovey host, what a place of paradise in such a peaceful remote location, right next to the quiet beach along with 2 resorts where you can eat, drink and swim which is a bonus! Beautiful home full of Zanzibian character, Mila is the person that’s always there for you whenever you need and make sure you have a comfy stay! Highly recommended!

    David2019-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Mila's place was definetly a highlight during my Sansibar journey. A quiet, natural, green place right at the ocean. Beautiful african house, large ,clean room. Mila is a wonderful host, her breakfast was delicious, lots of fruit. Truely recommended.

    Marina2018-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • This is the best Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in. The house is incredibly beautiful, right on the beach. Mila is everything you could wish for in a host and more and makes you feel at home immediately. We were so happy we found this little paradise. Plus there is fantastic food/breakfast!

    Clara2018-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • This really is a Gem - Located right next to a quiet beach it is an idyllic getaway. The room is large and the best is comfortable. Mila is an excellent host offering some very unique and delicious takes on local cuisine. Very much looking forward to visiting again in the near future.

  • Baby Bush is a very nice oasis just outside Kiwengwa standing in a local environment side by side with African fishermen and families. The hotel is less than 40m from the amazing beach (when the tide is high). The water is crystal blue and the sand is pure white. The hotel has a nice lounge area with great view, from where you have wifi access, even though the connection is quite weak. The rooms are nice and clean, but the door to the bathroom only consists of a curtain. The breakfast is great and included (Nutella is available). Generally Baby Bush is a great place, compared to the low price!

Beautiful location, balcony opens onto the sea, so a beautiful location to eat. The wad is always clean. Rooms are good, only the bathrooms on the lesser side. During our stay the power went out on the street, luckily they had a generator that could provide the necessary. A good experience!

  • Although it takes a little search to find the villa, the place is really unique. Indeed, the very functional house, the very large swimming pool and the small shed overlooking the ocean make the stay magnificent. Certainly, as said before, the house is up to the standards of the country. But it is clean, hyper functional (3 very large rooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 with hot water, a large kitchen, a very large living room) and we do not come here to stay inside. And so, between the pool, garden and cabana overlooking the beach, it's really a beautiful place. Special mention for mister Benjamin and Mister Mang, who are in the small house at the entrance, who are very caring (excellent breakfasts, possibility of dinners, fresh coconut ...) and who know how to remain discreet. And all that with always a huge smile screwed. In short, we recommend. Only important point: there is really nothing to do around, provide a vehicle or see on the spot to be conveyed to visit the treasures of Zanzibar. :-)

  • Nice place to relax on Zanzibar's east coast. The outside area and the pool were amazing, exactly like shown in the pictures. The house itself offered plenty of space for up to 6 people, but it could use some more maintenance and someone with back problems may not have the greatest sleep in the beds. However all essential things were working fine like internet and a/c in the bed rooms. The communication with Sheigo was great and his two staff on site were super friendly and helpful. They cooked us a delicious dinner one night and tasty breakfast every morning. But it's definitely a good idea to bring some groceries from Stone Town as others have written. There's a resort next door but the only option to eat there was to buy a day pass for $35.

  • Beautiful spot in a local fishing village. We loved the pool and swimming with the local kids when the tide was in. Please bring everything with you except seafood and you will have a fantastic time. It is possible to get some local fruit and vegetables but without a car it is challenge of logistics to get beer, tonic water etc.

    Laura2019-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful view of the ocean and in the middle of Paje and Nungwi beaches. Sheigo’s crew provided breakfast for us every morning and we worked with them on getting transportation wherever we wanted to go! Highly recommend this spot! Wifi was a bit spotty on times, but I was off the grid anyways. We also hired a chef, Miki, to cook us a fantastic meal and hung out with our guide, Peace, from Stonetown. Highly recommend Sheigo putting you in touch with these guys for an overall perfect experience while in Zanzibar. I cannot wait to be back!

    Kiernan2019-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • Sheigo was a great host! He was very responsive to any questions we had and very accommodating! We had a last minute (approx 1 month before) addition to our group of travelers, and Sheigo did not hesitate to allow us to have an additional guest. There are a couple of gentleman that help out around the place - making sure it is clean, and one made us breakfast in the mornings. They helped us to arrange transportation to various activities that we wanted to do while on Zanzibar. The location of the house was a little tough to find initially, but we got there just fine -- being right on the beach made the trek out there so worth it! My family and I all agree that this was the best accommodations we stayed at during our trip to Tanzania!

  • We were very lucky to stay here! Cristina is highly friendly and helpful host — very positive and easy-going. She kindly helped us with all questions during our staying. Cristina also arranged a private chef for cooking tasty breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. This villa perfectly meets the needs of company of 4–6 people and looks absolutely like you can see on the photos. Very convenient location near the beach — just several steps to the ocean. Kitchen is well-equipped with all home appliances. We spent more than 2 weeks in Zanzibar and this villa was the cleanest place on the island. No insects and other nasty creatures. So all was superb! We really loved our stay there and will be happy to recommend the place to our friends! Hope to come back soon :)

  • Just the perfect place -like the pictures but better. Great personal welcome ( at 3am after a delayed flight). Impeccably clean. Cristina (Jukka’s wife) organised a great driver to pick us up and take us around. The house really is beautifully decorated, relaxing and comfy. Super little garden onto the beach( gardener came every day to tidy up). Also possible to have cook for $15 per day ( just add extra for the food he buys, but shopping is done and all cleaned up -delicious and fresh). Local beach great , in between two resorts but not noisy. Felt very safe. Overall, a top spot.

    Jane2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful stay. Comfortable beds (air conditioning in master bedroom). Spacious rooms. Beautiful views. Lots of restaurants in easy walking distance (along the beach). Wifi is small range (to be expected) and high tide comes up to the gate.

    Pam2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Dear Ms. Cristina. Goodday. I don't believe that we already came back from Zanzibar and your awesome house. Feels like we were in blue heaven and met Italian angel there. Thank you for your cordial care and caring for my family. My kids and wife are still longing for your exotic house which is mixture of Santorini interior and traditional Zanzibar style. While we laid down ourselves on sunbeds at sand covered front yard, we really enjoyed mild blue whispers from the Kiwengwa beach and contradictory strong sunrays. It was really similar feeling such like you dip yourself in hot spring at winter season. Especially, front yard was my kids favorite place to display their shell collections and build up sand castles. Due to your designer's virtue, your interiors and tiny cute items made my wife to make AWWW sound when she first saw those things. I would like to recommend my friends to drink Tanzanian beer in front of that house at night to get a kick out of listening the atmosphere of heaven. Also, thank you for letting us know some nice restaurants around your house. White Dream...that was my favorite and my family's favorite as well. We visited there every night to have dinner and chat with endless waves endlessly. It was located within one minute distance and very pleasant to walk beach to get there. Foods were delicious and very money wise. I thanked the owner to accept credit card for bills. You have god made pool in front of your house not inside. I was envy of you because you don't need to heat up the swimming pool water .Your natural swimming pool water was always warm to swim which come from the Indian Oceans. After we came back to Johannesburg, every night we saw Zanzibar pictures which reminisce good memories of our staying at your nice house. We really appreciate your Italian style warm welcome and farewell. You are there and we are here waiting for next rendezvous. Crazie. My Italian mother in law. Take care and hope to see you soon. Best regards, Lee

  • This is the most beautiful creatively designed home on an amazing beach, with a very lovely caring host. For sure it will be our most treasured times in Zanzibar.

    siesta2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • The number one value wherever you go, a restaurant, a hotel, a home etc - is Hospitality: the feeling that you are SEEN, that the host actually cares about you. This feeling was in abundance with Cristinas place. The house was located perfectly on the beach, a perfect size for us; a couple who wanted to spend a romantic two weeks with both beach life and privacy, very cosily decorated, but best of all was the feeling that Cristina looked out for us and cared - we always felt welcome to come with questions and if there was any minor disturbances, like power cuts (this is Zanzibar, such things happen...), she did her best to help out. It was magical to have dinners on the veranda under the stars and full moon, to take both nightly and daily walks on the beach or go for a quick swim. It was a quite area and also felt very safe. Cristina was also helpful to recommend Hamisi, a great cook who bought groceries and cooked when we wanted and drivers who picked us up from airport or drove us for a small excursion to another beach, all to very fair prices. I can only recommend this place the warmest. We had a totally wonderful time there, and 11 nights felt short...

    Linus2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • I don’t have enough words to thank them! Christina was really kind , warm and thoughtful. Place is scenic. It is much much better than the photos. Beds are comfortable, place is nice , big and peaceful. She arranged us a chef , he cooked for us. Arrangements, Taxi, medicine needed etc were done very quickly. Best host ever ! Best airbnb ever! Go to this place . Enjoy the sea breeze, your own private yard. You have direct access to the beach and this part of the Beach is calm and unspoilt. The sea in Zanzibar is tricky. There is tide and sometimes it is impossible to swim. ( it is mostly same in all Zanzibar ) you can stay home and watch the trees and sea. I slept listening the waves ... I loved the place ! Thank you ❤️

    Sezi2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Jukka & Christina's home is absolute perfection! Firstly, the location cannot be beat. On a quiet, beautiful stretch of white sand beach, you are steps from the ocean. There are very few houses in this area, mainly resorts and hotels, and it feels so unique and special to stay in a home. The home itself is fantastic - beautifully decorated, a great kitchen for cooking, multiple dining and sitting spaces (both indoor and outdoor), and an outdoor shower steps from the beach. Christina and Jukka were wonderful, thoughtful, kind hosts, helped us book a beautiful day trip and transportation to and from Stone Town, and had an awesome team to help with cleaning indoor and outdoor. They thought of every small detail and made us feel like we were at home! Our one complaint was that we had to leave such a perfect home and beach. We would recommend this home in a heartbeat to anyone traveling to Zanzibar!

    Mambo! Thank you for your interest in Lazy Beach House. We are a simple but cosy beach house right on the white sands of the beautiful Kiwengwa beach. Our house has 5 rooms, all en-suite and ocean facing with their own private balconies. Perfect for those who really want to take a break from the hustle and bustle, connect with nature and the local culture, fall asleep to the sound of waves and relax in the sun during the day. We look forward to sharing our piece of paradise with you :)
    We have a chill out area upstairs, equipped with sea views, an honesty bar and great vibes that all guests can enjoy. We are so lucky to be positioned in front of a beautiful sand bank which allows us and our guests to make the most of the beautiful beach, even during low tides!
    We are right on the edge of a wonderful community and the locals will make sure you feel right at home. If you are interested, you will also have the opportunity to experience local meals and explore the village and local school to learn more about this amazingly welcoming community and their culture
  • LAZY BEACH - I couldn't describe it better. idyllic accommodation almost directly on the wonderful sea with a few sunchairs. I liked the large bathroom and the private terrace. there is also a larger communal area with tea / beer corners in the house. for little money, you can fill up your water bottles #lessPlastic. very quiet area with a small, authentic village. a few restaurants, a kite school and limited shopping. I really enjoyed the stay!! Thanks to the whole crew!

  • The house is directly at the beach, the rooms are really clean and you got everythink what you need for a nice holiday. Sarah and her team are very friendly and helpful! We had two perfect days at the lazy beach house!

    Max2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Lazy Beach house is a great find on a beautiful coast. Sarah and her friends in the local village made us feel so welcome and helped us with anything we needed. Amour’s Place, the cafe just between the house and the beach serves up delicious home cooked curries and seafood as well as a lovely breakkie that filled us up every day!

    Pippa & Henry2018-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • I had a lovely one-night stay at the Lazy Beach House. Check-in was super easy — I arranged a ride from the airport with Andrea the day beforehand (about $45), and MC was waiting at the beach house to give me the tour. There’s a cute lounge space on the top floor with complimentary tea and coffee. The room itself was spacious and very clean, bed was comfy and there was a fan for some added ventilation when trying to sleep (much appreciated!). A little musty, but that’s to be expected with the ocean air. I only had about 24 hours here, and sadly I was pretty sick for the first half of that so I didn’t have a LOT of time to explore, but the house is about 20 yards away from a pretty little stretch of gorgeous, uncrowded beach. If you walk up or down the coast a bit there are some cool beach bars nearby that look really fun. Also, there’s a scuba diving place that takes you out to Mnemba Atoll, which is the BEST diving I’ve ever done!!! To sum up: Great location, helpful staff, comfy room, good value. Would absolutely stay here again :)

    Hayley2018-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Such a charming and beautiful place just 20 meters from the beach. The place is quiet, clean and very nice. The beach is quiet and not overrun by tourists and people wanna sell you stuff. The local people are very friendly and nice to help you or just having a little chat. I can definitely recommend this place!

    Amalie Brix2018-01-23T00:00:00Z

    Antoine2017-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Andrea as a host is wonderful. She reached out soon after we booked and reached out again a week before to finalize pickups from Stone Town. She also helped us in organizing a trip to Prison Island and a Spice Tour, which the latter we opted out of because we wanted to spend more time on the beach! It's a really great location with an amazing view of the beach, which is literally 500m from your room. The food was great and the staff was super accommodating to our requested eating times. Ibro, Andrea's right-hand man at the B&B was equally great. He was always available to provide a taxi and basically anything else we needed or had questions about. I would definitely go back and recommend others to stay here.

    Dounia2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • The house is really beautiful and the garden and jacuzzi a delight. Pongwe beach is very pretty and quiet. It is a haven of peace. In this beach the tides are very pronounced, so it must be taken into account when swimming in the sea. The staff that takes care of the house is very friendly and always available. The kitchenware is basic but the staff helps with everything that is needed.

    Ana2019-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • The house is nice and true to the pictures. We enjoyed our stay. It was clean when we arrived and provided a comfortable place to relax for the week. This area of the beach is quiet and doesn't have a lot of traffic (or it didn't when we were there anyway). There are a few restaurants within walking distance (5-15 minute walk) but most are quite pricey. There is also a small grocery store about a 10 minute taxi drive away. If you're looking for a place with lots of activities, this isn't it. But if you're looking for a place to chill out and relax, then you've found the right place.

    Beka2018-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely spacious villa right on the beach. It has stunning views on to the water. The local people are very friendly. Karimo, who is the villa security person/ local guide was very helpful in showing us the local area and resolving any minor issues we had with the wifi. All resolved quickly. Villa is 10-15mins walk from hotel restaurants. Id recommend eating at Santa Maria as much cheaper and tastier than the others. Thank you so much!

    Shumayea2018-07-12T00:00:00Z

Mayah and Rashad are just fantastic. Special mention for Rashad aka Nani who did we drive all day without ever complaining. No black spots against this stay I "gets off my Life" for a week and if I should return to Zanzibar, this is where I will put my bags :)

Dorota know Zanzibar inside out and was able to organize some trips for us at the last minutes which turned out to be some of the most memorable experience for us . She has a great team of support staff, led by Hassan, in the house to make your stay comfortable and we can’t that all of them enough who made our one week stay stress free and enjoyable. We all loved fresh supply of fresh coconut from the compound!

    The apartment is situated directly on the beach, facing the Indian ocean. Recently built, it's a mix of Italian and Swahili style. It features a large kitchen, 2 double rooms, 2 bathrooms with showers, AC in the bedrooms, private entrance from the beach, garden, and 24 hours internet and security. Do you need only one room? Here it is: https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/27122675 Can't find the dates? Just ask me directly :)
    Quiet spot with maximum privacy and outstanding view from private terrace, garden and room. It's a clean, modern space, unique in Kiwengwa Zanzibar.
    Surrounded by palm trees, walking distance to the nearby restaurants and well stocked supermarket. We are 10 mins walking distance from from bigger hotels and restaurants, that means that you won't be hassled by beach boys and crowd.
  • We spent almost 2 weeks at Marco's place and it was seriously one of the best we've ever had! Him and his staff (especially Winnie and Martin) were really nice, helpful and quick in answering questions, they really did a good job! It was our first time on the Island but definitely has not been the last time we've booked this place or our vacation trip to Kiwengwa! Asante!

  • The apartment is a beachfront treat. I would definitely recommend The Surfescape beachfront apartments for your stay in Kiwengwa. Just a walk away from various restaurants serving the freshest seafood and water activities such as kitesurfing. Our hosts were lovely enough to arrange our snorkeling trip and our private chef dinner, which was a delight. Marco and Nicole were only two doors away from our unit and were always friendly and responsive to any of our questions. Definitely wish we could’ve stayed longer:)

  • Our apartment was very nice and clean. Helen was really helpful and provided us with everything we needed. The location right on the beach is very nice and the view is amazing. The place itself was nicely decorated and there were some nice amenities also. Highly recommend.

    Mirela2018-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • House is amazing ! We loved it! Beach is so nice , away from the crowd, the garden + terrace is wonderful. Nicki helped us with everything and we will go there again❤️

  • We had an awesome stay at Marco’s place. The place is stunning with ocean views. Check in was easy and was super helpful with local tips and booking our last minute snorkelling trip to Mnemba Island.

    Our apartment is situated in a private beach villa at one of Zanzibar's most beautiful coast lines, in a quiet 'semi' private bay.

    Pongwe is a sleepy village which has been less affected by tourism than many of the other Zanzibar beaches. The local population are still warm and friendly and this attracts many guests to return to this corner of Zanzibar year on year. The beach is very tranquil beside the calm blue waters of the Indian Ocean. It's the longest coconut fringed beach in Zanzibar. The beach is perfect for long walks and swims. The whole beach is protected by an offshore reef which keeps the inner waters calm and safe. Snorkelling and boat trips can also be arranged to the reef.
  • Ina & Tsuli were great hosts. They took care of every aspect a tourist would expect in terms of a timely pick up, clean place and went beyond their way to help me when we forgot our phone in the local taxi. Overall a great experience and I'd recommend them highly.

  • Lovely place on the beach. Super relaxed and very close to a couple of lodges where you can go for lunch/dinner.

  • Kimurimuri Lodge is for those who want to get away from the highly touristy and expensive resorts and have a secluded, quiet stay. The benefit of this property, aside from the great value when compared with the big resorts, was the attention and assistance paid by the hosts. Ina and Msuli helped us with local transportation to the market as well as access to a private driver to take us to and from the airport and a trip to the northern beaches. The pool and view of the ocean is lovely and the house well equipped for cooking . There are a couple of good bar/restaurants in easy walking distance. Overall a charming, tidy, beautiful property with gracious and caring hosts.

  • Kimurimuri is a lovely older style beach villa in a quiet bay near Pongwe village. It has a nice pool, well kept grounds, and opens onto the quiet coral-sand beach. There are a number of small hotels within easy walking along the beach if you wish to eat out. Don’t forget to bring wet shoes to wear in the sea. The outer reef is about 1.5 to 2 kms off the beach, and after using a local out-rigger for a trip to the coral beds in the tidal lagoon, we waded/swam out to them a couple of times later in the week around low tide to snorkel in our own time. Lovely clear warm water. Check it out on Google Maps, Satellite image.

  • We had a great time at Ina & Msuli's place. The communication was super easy and quick. The place looks exactly like it does on the pictures. It was very clean and modern and had everything we needed to feel at home. We would highly recommend this wonderful apartment.

  • Beautiful place and very friendly owners

    Annita2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely spot and very private, with just the others who are staying in the same compound. It's quiet, and the apartment has everything you need from A/C to all the kitchen gadgets, water, and mosquito nets. The grounds are lovely and it's easy to walk to a few different nice restaurants. The ocean is right there and it's lovely to take beach walks at low tide. Ina was so helpful in arranging rides to the airport and Stone Town and also took us on a run to get beer in the nearby town. It feels very safe, and was a perfect place to relax and enjoy Zanzibar. We loved it.

  • Words can't describe how wonderful this experience was. The apartments are amazing and well worth the money. There is everything you need to cook nice meals with fresh 🐟 and seafood 🐙 if you whish. And affordable places to eat out if you prefer 😉 Serviced is really what you get both by the host and all the friendly help. There is always someone ready to help you even though your privacy is respected. The village is lovely 😍 and although it would be considered poor by European standards, villagers are welcoming, always with an heartwarming smile and eager to interact. My two teenage boys loved playing soccer with the local boys and were shown the local school and escorted through the village for an inside tour and ended up playing in the local soccer field with local teenage boys. We gave some chocolates to local kids in the beach and in retribution one of them climbbed a coconut tree 🌴 to present is with the fresh fruit and water. Lovely 💖. The walks are amazing 🏝️. From desert beachs, to coastal woods teaming with birds and bush babies. You can get lost and love it! Ina and Msuli were also incredibly helpful in advising us on buying local fresh produce, booking local trips and activities and getting transfers. The only thing I didn't like about Pongwe was how short the days were. 12 hours of daylight were not enough to enjoy the outdoors. Luckily the apartments are comfortable and we could entertain ourselves through the long nights. We stayed for 6 nights but could stay for a month!! See you soon Ina, Msuli, Msana (sorry for not spelling your name correctly) and all the Masai princes who made our stay memorable!!
