The space

The spacious and airy house sits on an elevated platform and offers great views on the Indian Ocean. The house has been completed in June 2007. Solid stone house built with local materials (Makuti thatched roof, hardwood/ boatwood furniture & natural stone floors). It offers comfort and all modern amenities. In 2016 we completed additional separate cottage for two people. We only rent out the property to one party. Sorry we do not rent the cottage separately.

Guest access

Walk down the path and you are in the water:
Swimming is possible year-round at high and low tide, ideal for children. Endless beach walks, snorkelling/diving in nearby marine park.

Ushongo has great potential for Windsurfing, Sailing, Kite-Surfing and Diving. There is a school/rental stations in walking distance. But since tourism has not developed yet there are very few water sport activists to be seen on the water.

One full-time maid, a gardener, who can be used for shopping and sightseeing and a nightwatchman are included in the price.

Amazing house for an amazing location. We stayed 3 nights and we had a really good time there. The staff was really nice to us, both Elizabeth and Abesi, were very helpful, they help us with meals, shopping, activities and everything. They are a hidden gem. We didn't meet the owner, but he showed himself pretty flexible and willing to help. We only had a problem with one local, that convinced us to go snorkeling, but in the end we got tricked and we had a big argument. Try to follow staff advise, avoid random people walking on the beach.

We were a family of 6 adults staying at Busso and Marie's house. The house is comfortable and super clean, the surroundings are beautiful, the staff (maid and gardener) are super friendly and helpful. The gardener even climbed a palm tree to get delicious fresh coconuts for us and helped us grill some fresh fish to perfection. We all loved staying at the house and would all highly recommend it to anyone who likes to be in a quiet and secluded place.

Where to start(URL HIDDEN) If you are looking for a nice cottage at/on the beach in a quiet and peacefull area, this might be the one for you! We stayed here for a couple of days and would love to go back. The staff, watchman, housekeeping and gardener are wonderfull and are really willing to take that extra step. A disadvantage?! hm.... maybe the fact that the water from the showers is salty? No serious, simply a wonderful place to stay! However, if you are looking for more beach-activities, party's, WIFI etc. This might not be the right place for you. Although, Mike's bar is tempting ;)

If you enjoy simplicity and tranquility, this place is a tropical paradise! It took us a while to get there, but the effort was well worth it. I am not sure I have ever been as relaxed as I was, sitting under those trees looking out over the Indian Ocean. The staff at the house was also superb - they took care of our every need. Thanks so much to Busso and family for sharing this little piece of heaven with us.
