Absolutely Excellent Experience!

  • 5 of 5

WOW! WOW! WOW! Booking this place has been a wonderful experience from when I first inquired about the property, to booking the property to staying at the property...and leaving the property!

Annika is very responsive and very helpful in answering questions and making arrangements to ensure our stay was as comfortable as possible!

The pool is an absolute gem! So much fun!

The interior is great too!

Having someone pick us up from the airport and then dropping us to our next location in Zanzibar was really helpful for us!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for a very memorable stay!
