The House

Congratulations, so you’ve managed to scrape enough money together to afford a detour from your backpacking african pilgrimage to paradisiac sun-infested Zanzibar. Be aware, trying to find budget accommodation near the beach to bundled up nicely and comfortable tend to cost just that, a bundle of cash. And if on top of that you want it with kitchen facilities, in Zanzibar that is as rare as unicorn poo.

Lucky for you, 'The house' offers a refuge to long term travelers passing through Zanzibar. An island thats sometimes described as bittersweet by many and often dubbed as an overpriced destination. We are a stone's throw away from Kite surfing-oriented Paje Beach. 'The House' is less than 5 minute walk to bars, kite centers, dive centers, restaurants, hospital, shops, and public transport. Paje Beach is strategically located on the east coast, and is the perfect tropical-island launch pad to discover what Zanzibar has to offer by only doing day trips without the hassle of carrying your heavy backpack. Near Paje you can explore nearby Michamvi and its superb sunsets over chwaka bay or stroll down to Jambiani and vibe around the village that sparked the revolution for independence.

We offer comfy bunk beds for 30'000tsh a night which includes brand new mattresses, mosquito nets, and linen. Also, each bed has a personal fan to fight that humid heat thats always creeping through the windows.

Guests can enjoy free tea and coffee plus usage of our kitchen to save some cash on meals. It includes a kettle, fridge, toaster, blender (for homemade juices), gas cooker, kitchen utensils and cutlery. But remember, your mother doesn't work here, so always clean up after your done. The shared-bathroom has a good shower (water-pump), proper flushing toilet, a sink + a mirror.
