We had a wonderful stay at the house, very much regretting having to leave.
The house itself with 2 spacious bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and dressing each, open plan kitchen, built and decorated in the beautiful Swahili coast style is set approx. 30 metres from the beach in a nice garden ensuring absolute privacy. It has a lovely and huge veranda with a comfy sofa where you can take your meals or simply relax. With the house come a housemaid and gardener, both very friendly and helpful, who take care of everyday cleaning inside and outside the house so that you can fully enjoy your stay. The gardener was also helpful to buy vegetables and fresh fish for a barbecue in the garden. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need, there is even a small freezer, and house and garden are well maintained.
As Ushongo beach has only a very few lodges, convenient for eating out if you like or meeting people, it is very quiet and especially without the crowd of vendors or motorcycles passing you may find on Zanzibar beaches.
Communication with the owner was excellent and we faced no problems before or during our stay.
We can recommend the house without any reserve for those who are looking for a relaxing and easy going holiday on the beach in a beautiful environment.
