Beautiful experience right from the start to the end of our stay. Baobab villa is a beautiful and spacious villa with air conditioning in all 3 bedrooms. There is a beautiful swimming pool amid the expanse of plants and trees. Felt like we were staying in a resort. The perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Special credit goes to Francis, our chef who prepared delicious meals for us. Cannot recommend him enough. Very safe property too. Thanks to Mr Paolo for being very responsive and ensuring that we had a pleasant stay. Will keep returning back.

We had a good stay, which was completely ruined by the rude owner on our last day. Good: location, cleanliness, Francis the manager and James the cook. Bad: no hot water for showers and the water in the taps is actually salt water. Not acceptable: being startled by an angry and unfriendly owner banging on the bedroom windows, informing us that we must leave in 30 minutes, because there were new guests arriving. When we booked, we had looked specifically for a place with flexible check-out, because of our late flight. When we informed the owner of this, he created a nasty scene with confusing arguments. When we left at 3 pm, the new guests had still not arrived. Creating this scene was such an unnecessary and disrespectful thing to do. We left with a bad taste and will not return to this particular place. The situation was later resolved by Francis, the very friendly and professional manager, who made sure we had a little room to stay in for the last few hours.

Response from Paolo:
The review reported is not true. The hot water was ok in the shower. At 10.35 am we tried to get in touch with the guests as we was waiting for other guests. Nobody was replaing so we knocked at the window. On guest came at the window and we informed we was waiting for new arrival and after 11 am we should have clean the cottage for new guests. The replay was "this cottage has a flexible check in and check out so we leave when we like" I explain the guests in each hotel te rooms must be left within 12 and the raplay was " i will leve the cottage 1 minute before 12" We gave the chance to leave luggages in the office and to had another cottage. They left the second cottage a 3 pm- Francis is our cook in Shambani, is not the manager, and he is following my personal instructions. Paolo

Ok so this building, Balboa Villa on the grounds of Shambani Village, was not all we were hoping for. The building itself and style of architecture was lovely. 3 full rooms with two having en suite baths was nice. An upstairs porch and roof top worked. Staff and cook for 10 euros a day great. The not great things. All water coming out of faucets and showers is salt water. This is uncomfortable to shower in and to use for washing and cooking. There is not really Wi-Fi in the villa. There's Wi-Fi for the reception area of the village and the manager let us borrow the router for the weekend. The router only worked when it could pick up signal from the reception villa. This may not be possible for all guests if more villas were occupied. The upstairs shower did not work. A couple clarifying points. The beach is out the front of the community, across the street and down a path. Beach Boys will escort you. It's about 10 minutes. Dogs are on the grounds. We mostly had a family of 4 following us around. Friendly though mangey. We saw two other bigger dogs too on occasion that didn't cause any issues.

Sono stata 3 giorni a SHAMBANI con 5 amici, il posto è stupendo e molto ben curato , ville spaziose e molto belle ,personale molto disponibile. Si raggiunge la spiaggia in 2 minuti di cammino e con 5 minuti di macchina si raggiungono negozi e locali. L'unico problema che abbiamo avuto è stata l'acqua che andava e veniva e ogni volta dovevamo far chiamare il tecnico, ma l'ultimo giorno si è risolto il problema.
