The best thing about this modest little resort was the friendly and helpful staff. The food was fresh and plentiful and the view to the beach was wonderful. They were accommodating when we asked to have our room changed to avoid a very shaky stair case to a second floor open room on the beach. The showers and the pool...

Nice lodge, nice view and comfortable beds. Rooms were cleaned everyday, bottles of water everyday in the room, clean towels as well. (Yes it's a basic place to stay but what do you expect?!) The food in the restaurant is really good with a large choise on the menu. Breakfast is more than correct with fresh juice, fresh fruit and...

Excellent food, friendly staff, good views, sea facing rooms. Value for money. The beach is rocky but is perfect during high tide, which is the only time to swim anyway. There is a kite surfing rental next door on the beach and a local restaurant with good food as well. Good WiFi signal

Quiet place, good food, good view, right on the beach, swimming pool, not too expensive, hot water, good mattresses, kind staff. Especially good for those who like a good night rest and for those who don't like crowded beaches. It's so peaceful here! Lovely!

Lovely sandy beach, overlooked by rooms, no concrete walls like most others. The 2 storey bungalowd have amazing views from upstairs and can sleep 4. Pool is good and the food the best on that beach. Staff were really friendly and helpful. We had a great time there, with live African music on our last night

If you're looking for a quiet place (away from the strip mall that Jambiani and Paje have become) on a beautiful beach, this is the place. Located on the Jambiani/Paje border, it's ideal as it's far away from the wall to wall resorts that line the shores of Paje and Jambiani proper. Should you wish to indulge in what the...

Spent a wonderful and relaxing week at this extraordinary hotel. Simple, clean and comfortable accommodation. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. And a magnificent location. Oh and the food is wonderful too! I would go back tomorrow if it wasn't so far from my home! Thank you Steve and all for the terrific vacation!

From December 2015 until January 2016, my wife and I spent a terrific holiday with our little kids (3 and 1) in Pakachi. It felt like being in paradise: Our traditional 2-story banda located directly at the white sandy beach, excellent local cuisine and – most of all – the warm-hearted team made our stay a dream holiday. Since I...
