Our cozy one bedroom apartment is situated in our Kimurimuri Villa next to one of Zanzibar's most beautiful palm fringed beaches. It's the perfect place for nature lovers who want to inhale Zanzibar's beauty and hospitality outside the 'standard' hotel walls but not miss out on comfort. We are a small local family business and will help you experiencing the real Zanzibar. Pongwe is one of the last remaining authentic fishing villages with very few resorts/lodges. It's very safe and not crowded.
“We absolutely loved our stay in Kimurimuri, Ina and Msuli's Zanzibarian oasis. Everything was clean and exactly as described in the photo's. Check in was effortless, Ina was there to give us a little tour and help us set up the wifi. They had cleaning staff come in every couple of days during the week we where there to replenish toilettries and towels as well and empty the bins in the kitchen. We had everything we needed in order to cook up some meals in the apartment yet there are several lodges and restaurants within walking distance that we're seemingly always open.Msuli was very helpful in picking up fruits and veggies for us as we had a hard time finding some in Stonetown before our check in. The shuttle service that we set up through Ina with the their trusted driver Suba was very affordable and he even stopped to wait on us while we picked up some groceries on our way from Stonetown to Pongwe.We used the same service to do some excursions (which Msuli set up for us) and to get from the Apartment to the airport at the end of our stay. The place was relaxing and the security guards or cleaning staff are always present yet very discreet, should you need anything. Ina was super quick to respond to all my messages and we had some great chats with her throughout our stay. I honestly loved my stay here. We had the place all to ourselves, which was an added bonus and the beach is right outside your door. The sand bar provides swimming that is wonderful for children as the water is shallow for a very long stretch. The apartment grounds are a wonderful place for children to play with a parent's peace of mind that they cannot venture too far as the entire complex is fenced in and gated with 24hr security. It was just the relaxation we were craving. Ina and Msuli provide a safe and enchanting home base from which to explore the island. I highly recommend them as hosts.”

“Dear Ms. Cristina. Goodday. I don't believe that we already came back from Zanzibar and your awesome house. Feels like we were in blue heaven and met Italian angel there. Thank you for your cordial care and caring for my family. My kids and wife are still longing for your exotic house which is mixture of Santorini interior and traditional Zanzibar style. While we laid down ourselves on sunbeds at sand covered front yard, we really enjoyed mild blue whispers from the Kiwengwa beach and contradictory strong sunrays. It was really similar feeling such like you dip yourself in hot spring at winter season. Especially, front yard was my kids favorite place to display their shell collections and build up sand castles. Due to your designer's virtue, your interiors and tiny cute items made my wife to make AWWW sound when she first saw those things. I would like to recommend my friends to drink Tanzanian beer in front of that house at night to get a kick out of listening the atmosphere of heaven. Also, thank you for letting us know some nice restaurants around your house. White Dream...that was my favorite and my family's favorite as well. We visited there every night to have dinner and chat with endless waves endlessly. It was located within one minute distance and very pleasant to walk beach to get there. Foods were delicious and very money wise. I thanked the owner to accept credit card for bills. You have god made pool in front of your house not inside. I was envy of you because you don't need to heat up the swimming pool water .Your natural swimming pool water was always warm to swim which come from the Indian Oceans. After we came back to Johannesburg, every night we saw Zanzibar pictures which reminisce good memories of our staying at your nice house. We really appreciate your Italian style warm welcome and farewell. You are there and we are here waiting for next rendezvous. Crazie. My Italian mother in law. Take care and hope to see you soon. Best regards, Lee”

“The house is nice and true to the pictures. We enjoyed our stay. It was clean when we arrived and provided a comfortable place to relax for the week. This area of the beach is quiet and doesn't have a lot of traffic (or it didn't when we were there anyway). There are a few restaurants within walking distance (5-15 minute walk) but most are quite pricey. There is also a small grocery store about a 10 minute taxi drive away. If you're looking for a place with lots of activities, this isn't it. But if you're looking for a place to chill out and relax, then you've found the right place. ”
