The house is a stone's throw from the beach, just behind Peponi Hotel. It is also close to the Friday Mosque, UNESCO historic sites and shops/ATM. You’ll love it because of the seafront atmosphere, the wonderful rooftop view, the privacy and, last but not least, the welcoming house staff and excellent chef.

The space
This is a three-storey house, with a secured bedroom on each of the first two floors and a communal rooftop terrace. Both rooms have an ocean view balcony, a bathroom and a double bed with mosquito net. There is also an adjustable ceiling fan for humid days and nights. The rooms can be rented individually or you can rent the house as a whole.

The kitchen is the chef's domain but can also be used by guests if they so request. The rest of the house is yours to occupy.
