“It was a pleasure staying at Gails and Garys place and if we could, we would’ve stayed longer! They were so kind and always did their best to support us. The house is really nice and clean (it was cleaned once a day) with two ACs to get along with the humidity. It’s separated from the hosts house so you have a lot of privacy and it has its own access to the beach. They can arrange different trips, e.g. to Stone Town or a spice tour, and snorkeling or diving as Gary has his own Diving School. They easily arrange a driver if you need one and provide tasty bread and fruits. We highliy recommend the accommodation of Gail and Gary! Thank you so much for hosting us.”

We have a small garden available for use of Magnolia villa 2 which is fenced off. The main villa grounds and gardens are for the main house use only
“A beautiful place for a relaxing vacation! The gardens were wonderful, and it was great to have the chairs for lounging- especially to stay off the beach in the direct sunlight midday and to avoid people coming up to talk to you on the beach. The white sandy beach was beautiful and the water warm for swimming in the afternoons at high tide (otherwise not the most swimmable area but very picturesque). We found some nice local restaurants nearby. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning nice for sleeping at night. The main room unfortunately did not great circulation so was very hot and stuffy, even with the fan on.”
