Accommodations

The OceanView Villa is a private villa for rent suitable for family vacationers, family reunions, small groups of friends, and couples seeking privacy and tranquility. The rooms are designed and decorated to capture the local Swahili style of Zanzibar and blend flawlessly with the environment.

The 4 bedroom villa consists of a master bedroom with private bathroom, all tiled, glass enclosed shower. The master bedroom has a king-size Swahili bed, French doors opening to a veranda overlooking the ocean. The 2 guest rooms (standard-size bedrooms) each have a queen-size Swahili bed and a beautiful garden view of frangipani flowers, papaya and coconut trees. The two guest rooms have a private sitting room and a shared bathroom consisting of modern tiled glassed enclosed shower. The extra 4th bedroom with queen size bed is for additional guests.

Main living area
The living room is a fantasy in motion, great expance looking up into the magnificent makuti roof. The artistry of the sofa and lounge chairs made by a famous artist/carpenter is one of a kind; French doors/windows overlooking the garden and the ocean. The villa has an open floor plan. The living room flows into the dinning room, the bar, and the kitchen, all in one open space separated by exotic Arabian arches. Centered in the hall is a beautiful water fountain.
Modern kitchen with beautiful tiled counters, refrigerator and stove. The spacious dinning room is all windows, overlooking lush bougainvillea and the ocean.
All rooms have ceiling fans and natural air conditioner (ocean/land breezes flow through mosquito screened lattice openings above all windows).

The bungalows are designed for families, group of friends and or a couple. There is a lockable interconnecting door allowing easy access for socializing and to turn the rooms into a family suite.

Hi Lilia and Alex
Hope you are well. A quick note to say thank you for your wonderful villa which is even more lovely first hand than it is portrayed in your photos. Weather gorgeous and people lovely. Futari's cooking is out of this world and would rival any restaurant London. Have met Thomas the Chief Masai who is looking after us at a Masai show at Ocean Paradise tomorrow.
All in all we are having a fab time. Once again thank you from myself and my friend Ellie gratitude to you both.

From email commendation:
Hello; Just a note to let you know we had a lovely stay at Ocean View in February. The Villa is right on the Ocean. The bedrooms are great and the rest of the house is very spacious - loads of room.
You will be well looked after there by Futari and her helper along with the Masai guard and the very sweet and helpful grounds keeper Casmir.
The sand it like flour it is so white and fine.The beach area is kept clean - raked every morning.
There are lounges and shady Palapas.The breakfast which is included is very good and filling.
This is a very good place to stay - good value.
If you have any more questions feel free. Christine Barents

Dear Lilia and Alex
Thank you for perfect holiday! This four week has been relaxing and all the people has been so helpful. I can’t find more words to describe the feeling, the lovely feeling in the heart will remain!
Futari’s cooking has been much better than the food in Kempinski that we tried once. Diving in Mnemba wasn’t so good that we expected but Kizimkazi’s diving spots were very nice! I can recommend the One Ocean diving center. Shopping in town in the market place was interesting and the supermarket Mgonbini was the best!
All the best for everything and hope to visit here in the future too!

Dear Lilia, Alex, Futari, Elia, and of course Rambo!
Thank you all for the most wonderful and relaxing week here. It has been magical from the first moment we arrived. The memories will live on for years – Futari’s incredible food, seemingly effortlessly. The gentle rustle of the palms as the sea breeze blows a constant symphony accompanied by the gentle lapping of the waves. We have been so lazy, so comfortable and it’s a credit to you all how endlessly homely you have made us feel. The only downside is that wish this was our home! And now we come to leave and we fear leaving the gates of Ocean View just in case this has all been a dream. Can life really be this good? You have all shown us that it can be, your hospitality, kindness and generosity has been verses-ending and we already long to return. Thank you all for making a dream appear so real.
With love

Ocean View Villa
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful villa, right on the beach. Futari cooked us wonderful meals and brought us coconut milk to drink on the beach! Thoroughly enjoyed meeting with Lilia and Alex too - they were kind and gracious hosts.
