Holiday House 'sun hill' in Kizimkazi

Great immersive experience

  • 5 of 5

We're really glad we chose this place, which is more than a lovely, comfortable house: it's a real immersive experience. We're grateful to Harriet and Peter who share their love of Zanzibar and Kizimkazi village, and allow travellers to discover the island intimately inside this local community they have woven tight bonds with over the years. We felt welcome, free and safe. Just make sure you plan your stay properly (there are no supermaket or ATM nearby so you need to arrive fully stocked). Thanks again for allowing us to travel in such a pleasant and meaningful way!

A wonderful place, great souvenir

  • 5 of 5

We spend 13 days in Kizimkazi, the house is wonderful, it is located in a really good place, quiet and near the sea and restaurants. We enjoyed spending time in the roof terrace. Also the people of Kizimkazi are nice and enjoyed speaking with tourists without waiting for anything in return. We never felt not in security. We are happy to have chosen this place and advised it.

What can we say, the bungalow is fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, very clean and had everything we needed.

Gardens were beautiful and an amazing roof terrace.

Staff were there to help but only when we needed them for days out at very reasonable prices.

Dolphin Safari was brilliant as was the Blue Safari to the most amazing sand bank island.

To sum it up the place is paradise, locals are very friendly and we were happy to walk around on our own.

Hope to visit again very soon.

Thank you

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the beautiful Sun Hill for one week. To me, Sun Hill can only be decribed as heaven on earth. It is perched on a slight hill surrounded by an abundance of natural vegetation. The house is decorated beautifully both internally and externally, therefore making it a very easy place to live, relax and enjoy. The staff are incredible helpful, with no ask too much of an effort.

We are so looking forward to returning to this little piece of heaven on earth ...

Wunderschönes Haus in Strandnähe

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zehn schöne, ruhige Tage in eurem Haus verbracht. Juma war immer für uns da und jeden Morgen mit frischen, teilweise von seiner Frau gebackenen Chapatti, zur Stelle. Im Haus war alles vorhanden, was wir uns gewünscht haben, es hat uns absolut an nichts gefehlt. Abends saßen wir oft auf der Terasse und haben die Geckos beobachtet bei einem Glas Weißwein und einer Runde Bao. Wir haben oft selbst gekocht, mit viel frischen Auberginen, Kartoffeln und Tomaten aus dem Dorf, waren allerdings auch einige Male bei Patrik, dem Besitzer der benachbarten Lodge. Das Dinner dort ist absolut zu Empfehlen. Bei Ebbe kann man ausgedehnte Strandspaziergänge machen, wenn das Wasser höher steht lassen sich im seichten Wasser viele kleine bunte Fische beobachten und andere Meeresbewohner beobachten. Wir haben eine Wunderschöne Zeit in eurem Haus verbracht, wir können es jedem empfehlen, der eine ruhige und angenehme Zeit auf Sansibar verbringen will!

Tolles Haus in authentischer Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben einen sehr schönen Urlaub abseits der Touristenhochburgen verbracht. Wir wurden von allen hervorragend umsorgt, so dass man als etwas verwöhnter Europäer sich um nicht Sorgen machen musste.

Die Ausflüge zum Schnorcheln und Lunchen auf einer Sandbank mitten im Meer, die Spice und die Village Tour um die Menschen vor Ort kennenzulernen sind absolut empfehlenswert. Um die Insel ein wenig zu erspüren sollte man unbedingt nach Sansibar und Stone Town oder in Richtung Paje und Jambiani fahren. Der Ausblick vom "The Rock" auf den Strand wir unvergesslich bleiben.

Kommen gerne wieder.
