A combination of our love for Zanzibar + a desire to share this beautiful place.

For years our family has spent weekends and holidays here. We’ve celebrated birthday’s, anniversaries, and weddings – it’s safe to say it’s a special place for us.

When we are not here, we run our family construction business in town. We work here, live here and play here; Zanzibar has been home for us since the beginning and we wouldn’t have it any other way!

In 2018, our dream became reality. Construction of our beach villas was complete and we began welcoming guests from all around the world.

We’ve opened this place we call home to families & groups of all sizes and enjoying sharing the beauty Zanzibar to everyone we meet.

Now that you know a little bit about us – we hope to know you + your group as we welcome you to our  Villas!

Karibuni Sana!
