Fabulous holiday in Zanzibar
We all fell in love with this house the location is amazing. The view the sea breeze and Jambiani village will stay in our memories forever ! It’s ideal for a big group of friends plenty of space super comfortable beds and the upstairs balcony is perfect for sundowners ! The staff were brilliant! Ideal to have breakfast made for you each morning by Amer who couldn’t do enough to make our stay perfect!!! The ladies kept the house super clean with fresh sheets every other day amazing service! Hassan was always available with transport to take us anywhere we needed to go. We all had an amazing holiday and we will miss this house and the lovely staff very much !!! Thank you till next time !
Kiru as house menager was great, he did everything to acomodate us. Hassan our driver was great
Great house with great staff. awesome location.
Amazing location and wonderful house!
We are a family of 5 and spent four nights in June '19. The house is amazing and the staff very kind. The house had not been used in awhile so we had some trouble with ants, broken air-conditioners, water, theft. Although it sounds like a lot they were just small bumps in the otherwise spectacular experience that is Villa Biba. We so enjoyed the wonderful food and we also took advantage of our own personal tour guide. Hassan picked us up in StoneTown and showed us around. We also went snorkling and swam with wild dolphins thanks to him. My only advice is to make sure that the house is always locked but by all means visit this lovely villa.
Wonderfully unique and charming home on the beach
It took a bit of getting used to the home because in some ways it felt a bit sparse and the rooms disconnected, but the uniqueness and charm of the home grew on us. We felt like we were occupying a well preserved architecturally interesting home from many years ago. The two second floor bedrooms that face the ocean are wonderful. (Although one bedroom had problems getting hot water that wasn't fixed during our 3 night stay). The upper level balcony was perfect for the 4 of us to enjoy the view of the ocean as well as the activity on the beach. Our driver, Hassan, picked us up at the airport and gave us a very nice tour of Stonetown before driving across the island to Vill Biba at Jamiani beach. The house master, Kiru and his staff were very attentive and welcoming. A highlight for us was having amazing breakfasts and dinners cooked by a very talented chef, Mao. We also booked the wooden sailboat operated by our night watchman who took us snorkeling. We would love to come back some day!
Beautiful view but totally ruined by the service! Serious safety concerns.
Stay as of Aug/Sept 2018 for nine people:
1-The scenery and layout of the house cannot be beat. We enjoyed that part of the stay very much.
2-Kiru, the cleaners, the cook and the watch guards all did their jobs wonderfully. (See below for issues with the driver though.) The best food we had was at the house, especially breakfast.
3-Even though one room did not have an AC unit it was plenty cool enough.
4-The owner was very accommodating when we asked for additional local guests to possibly visit us.
1-House does not have a back up electricity generator or hot water in every room, sewage backups did happen but were handled promptly. It’s Africa so not fully unexpected.
2-Hassan the driver. With some of our guests being fluent in Swahili and Tanzanian residents for over a decade, we determined that he was charging ridiculous prices for transport. When we called him out on it and arranged for other transportation (ahead of time and let him know) he still came to the airport and made SUCH a scene that I immediately contacted the owner and let them know we did not feel safe with him at the property. Our local friends kept close watch for us, and took the downstairs room. We thought maybe we could all consider it a misunderstanding and we could start fresh the next day but Hassan’s attitude and treatment towards us became worse and worse, especially once he found out we were not personal friends of the owner.
We had to find other modes of transportation/tours because he was so nasty towards us which then in turn made him more nasty. For our safety we decided to not really say anything to the owner because what can they do? They are in a foreign country and they cannot change out the whole staff overnight. Even if they do say something to the staff, they are all related and have constant access to every nook and cranny of the house. So in order to avoid possible retaliation we just ended up bearing it but Hassan did cast a very tense and awkward dark shadow over our whole stay of 8 days. We were never really able to relax which was the whole point of our vacation. So I would say if you can avoid Hassan’s hissyfits by paying his overcharges then your stay would probably be okay. But if you don’t want to be price gouged then stay somewhere else. We regret not just staying in a hotel for more peace of mind. Owner has not responded in 5 days to our complaint
