Holiday Rentals in Mwanza

Just booked in Mwanza

Beautiful, 1 bedroom apartment in Capripoint, Mwanza. Wraparound balcony with a great view of Lake Victoria. One bedroom with queen size bed and ensuite bathroom, double sofa bed in living room with second full bathroom, fully equipped kitchen.
The apartment is in a quiet area in Capripoint, overlooking Lake Victoria on a large property full of mango and avocado trees. A great space to relax, entertain and enjoy being in Mwanza!
A short walk into the city centre (15 minutes) where you can access shops, cafes, restaurants and supermarkets. Capripoint has a number of great lake side restaurants and bars, all within a short taxi ride from the apartment. (URL HIDDEN)
  • Shannon has created a warm and inviting environment on Capri Point! The pictures really don't do it justice. I traveled to her flat with my husband and my almost four year old son. We enjoyed our two week stay tremendously- from bird-watching on our balcony to curling up in the cozy living room to watch DSTV. Prior to our arrival, Shannon had stocked the kitchen with milk, juice, bread, butter, jam, peanut butter, and coffee/tea. This generosity was much appreciated and went a long way to making the flat feel like home! Finally, I can't say enough about the location. The view, high above Lake Victoria, was spectacular and only a 15 minute to walk.

  • I arrived to Mwanza for the first time for one week, and wasn't sure what to expect. Turns out I couldn't have taken a better decision than staying at Shannon and Amani's. They were incredibly kind and made me feel right at home, showing sensitivity and care, helping me with orientation and even sharing some much-appreciated food. The apartment itself is beautiful, featuring a stunning view over the lake and some tiny rocky islands. And what beautiful sunsets! Admittedly, the structure of the apartment is a bit unorthodox (need to get out to the veranda in order to get to the kitchen), and mosquitoes can be an inconvenience (it's the lakeside after all), but it all pales compared to the warmth of the hosts and the lakeside panorama that the place has to offer. Highly recommended! My place in Mwanza!

  • A great big thank you to Shannon for a lovely stay in her flat. The flat is not just a bnb-it's a whole apartment! The accommodation is very well appointed and very homey, making it an ideal home away from home. The view over the lake from the balcony is spectacular and there is a vigorous walk around the corner to an even more amazing view. Shannon provided all the essentials needed for our first night and we cooked in-house thereafter. I would like to recommend a little modernisation of the shower rooms but that in no way detracted from our very comfortable stay. We will both be very happy to stay again next year as we both like Mwanza and it's surroundings.

  • We had a wonderful time staying at Shannon's place. Although she wasn't even in the country at that time, she was always reachable and arranged airport pick up as well as some one who welcomed us incredibly nice. The apartment has a wonderful view over the lake and is located in a save area in walking distance from the city center. An overall positive experience

  • If an unspoilt view over Lake Victoria, towards sunset, framed by tropical trees in the foreground, filled with an endless variety of birds and butterflies is what you are after, in a quiet setting with simple but comfortable accommodation...you really cant find better in Mwanza. Lovely hosts Shannon and Armani, and helpful and friendly staff. Can get hot in the afternoon, but some roll up shade cloth dropping sheilding the flat from the afternoon rays would quickly and cheeply remidy that. Perfect for single occupant or couple, but due to high balcony, perhaps not best for those travelling with toddlers. All in all the perfect escape to contemplate this very beautiful corner of Tanzania.

    Matthew2016-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay here in Mwanza, it is within walking distance to several shops and restaurants. Also the property had several mango trees which we loved. It was nice to wake up to the sunrise and the birds.

    Rebekah2016-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay, everything was perfectly organised!

    David2016-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Shannon's an extremely communicative host. If staying in Mwanza city, this is a nice location from where to discover the lake and surrounding areas. The house itself is quiet, secluded and away from the bustle of the town, while within walking distance to it. Best for folk that are used to a bit of walking and enjoy it. Internet is an issue, but it's an issue everywhere in Mwanza. Shannon does provide a mobile hotspot for those that may want to step into town with connectivity.

    Are you looking for a greener stay in Mwanza? You are warmly welcome to stay at the Mwanza Solar house! Our home is equipped with solar lightning system, waste recycling and composting facilities. Located in Isamilo a calm and safe area close to the city centre. The house is bright, fresh and clean surrounded by a beautiful semi-wild garden. Two bathrooms and fully equipped kitchen. We are renting out the whole house as work has brought us to Morogoro for the time being.
    //Note: We give long term discounts for weeks/months. Our place is ideal for professional workers, looking for peace of mind concentrating fully on research/consulting/studying >>The Solar House We are an adventurous family of three, renting out our eco-friendly house in Isamilo. Best thing first: It is "green" - meaning it mainly runs on solar-energy! Sam is working for a German Solar company and has equipped the house with one of their products. Super reliable and powerful. The house has three bedrooms: Master bedroom: Spacious with a queen-sized bed, desk, shelf and a closet. It also has access to a private bathroom. Perfect for a little more privacy. Single room: Cozy room with queen-sized bed and closet. For single traveller or a couple. Twin room: Simple room with two single beds. Perfect for sharing with a friend. All room doors can be separately locked! We offer a decent monthly discount! There are two bathrooms (one of them is only accessible from the master bedroom). They are clean, tiled and have “rain dance” showers with hot water. Since the regional government has their residences and offices in Isamilo water supply is quite stable and the water pressure high. Self-contained kitchen equipped with everything you need to cook delicious meals with locally produced veggies from the market or fish from Lake Victoria :) Our Scandinavian/Tanzanian (Ingjerd is Norwegian) fusion style living room has a sitting group, a desk and a dining table. The house has a terrace with a sitting area where you can chill, have a chat and a drink after a long day. The garden is awesome and the perfect location for a barbecue. The Isamilo area is cool and safe. It is calm despite the busy city centre being just a 10 minutes walk away. We often host guests from NIMR or the Isamillo International School because they are only 500 meters away. If you want to do exercise - the roads in Isamilo are good for running and Isamilo International School (just around the corner) has a professional, outdoor swimming pool. If you stay long-term you can join ultimate frisbee, soccer and other organized sports that take place just nearby. ….And if drinking beer is your favorite sport - fear not - there are several bars and pubs in the area :) The new and popular bar “Flexzone” is just around the corner. The international language training centre is (literally) next door and offers high standard Swahili classes for foreigners. They also have a small preschool from 8 am-1 pm on weekdays. Don’t worry we barely notice them after they are done singing the national anthem :) For shopping Rock City Shopping Mall, U-turn supermarket and Kirumba market (veggies and fruits) are located within short walking distance. We share the compound with our long time friend Damien and his wife Anna. They are very nice and helpful if there should be any questions or issues while we are not around. Also they will do your check-in as we are usually not in Mwanza. BETWEEN US WE SPEAK GERMAN, NORWEGIAN, ENGLISH AND SWAHILI
    You´ll find out pretty soon, that Isamilo is a great area to stay at. Everything close by (Uturn supermarket, Rock City mall, small pubs and bars, as well as city centre in walking distance).
  • The Solar House was truly a great place to stay! Quaint, comfortable, secure, and a fifteen minute walk from downtown, we couldn't have found a better place for our time in Mwanza. Ingjerd and Sam were extremely helpful with any questions we had! This is a place I'd highly recommend to even my Grandma. If you plan to visit Mwanza, I promise you won't be disappointed with the Solar House!

    Matt2017-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic place, the staff on site were very helpful and the booking and communication excellent. My children and I were very comfortable. Thanks!!!

    Nigel2017-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • The Solar House is in a great location as it is a short walk to the Rock City Centre for groceries, banking & supplies. Definitely ask Mama Suzi to make some meals. The small cost for this is well worth it :) Ingjerd & Sam are good to respond to questions. Damien, who lives on site, is both friendly & helpful.

    Tricia2017-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Solar House for 2 and a half months while working in Mwanza and can't recommend it highly enough. Sam and Ina were welcoming and communicative hosts, the house was perfectly laid out and well stocked with all the basics. The location - Isamilo - is convenient for walking into town and feels safe. Mama Suzie keeps the house spectacularly clean and tidy and is absolutely lovely (she comes by 3 times per week) and Damian who lives close by on the property and helps Sam and Ina manage Solar House was always available to answer any questions or call a fundi for us when needed! And we absolutely loved that it was all solar powered and environmentally friendly :)

    Anushe2017-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home with us ! Communication was great Location was very central , beautiful cat that hangs around the house and Damian is very friendly!

    Pat2017-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Sam und Ingjerd sind tolle Gastgeber! Die Kommunikation ist sehr zuverlässig und nett und sie helfen in allen Belangen. Sehr unkompliziert! Das Haus ist wunderschön, sehr sauber und hat eine absolut heimelige Atmosphäre. Wir haben uns extrem wohl gefühlt. Es ist alles da, was man so braucht :) Man kann ins Zentrum laufen oder per Dalla oder Boda fahren. Alles kein Problem. Wir geben eine uneingeschränkte Empfehlung!

  • The solar house Is a attractive, easy place to stay with good accommodation for a mixed group. Access to most places of interest, via minibus is good including cheapest run (400tsh) to an airport I've ever had. The grounds and neighbourhood make it quiet and safe.

    Liz2016-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great house, very clean, 20min walk from town or 5 mins moto ride to the main attractions. Sam and Ingjerd were always available by email. high recommended

    luca2017-02-23T00:00:00Z

    Georgerbragg2017-05-18T00:00:00Z
  • I messaged the host on the day of traveling to Mwanza, she reassured me that it wasn't a problem and continued communication throughout the day via phone. We arrived much later than expected in Mwanza on the bus but again it wasn't a problem and the host kept us feeling welcome. The home is very cosy and clean and we happened to share it with some interesting guests. We shared the living space, cooked, eat and chatted together and enjoyed the relaxing time. The home is also powered by solar power which is a refreshing experience. It is very quiet at night and so I got some great sleep. A very decent experience overall. Highly recommend.

    Ayami2016-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Anne's house, 100 procent as you find it described, is a silent island in Mwanza City, quite, safe and clean with hot water and a (walking) washing machine. Anne helps to explore the important locations in beautiful Mwanza and is a generous and friendly host. Highly recommended.

    Angela2017-08-27T00:00:00Z

  • Anne was a wonderful, gracious host and I really enjoyed my visit. She and her friends were so welcoming! Her place is clean and convenient. Just a short taxi ride or walk up Bugando Hill. The water for the shower was hot, the bed with mosquito net was comfortable and wifi was an added bonus. There are lots of birds chirping in the morning. I'd love to stay again.

Rooms are clean and smart but it is a little noisy. We were there over a weekend and the neighbours played a lot of music!

  • it's a basic, safe, clean place to sleep - the Staff is friendly but doesn't speak English. With a Dallas Dallas it only takes 5min to the centre - everything worked out well for us and we would come again

    Dominik2016-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Akash was friendly and helpful, and everything worked work perfectly fine. When we missed our bus and had to extend our stay asap then that worked out very easy as well. It should be said that this is not a private residence as it usually is here on AirBnb but a lovely little hotel called Sleep-well Hotel with self-contained rooms and a bar. The location is perfect and rooms were clean, basic and lovely.

    Jens2016-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is clean, safe, and very close to the new Rockcity Mall. The only challenge is that the staff do not speak English! If you don't need them helping you organise anything, then the place is for you!

    Motlatsi2017-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • The place is very clean, the host is very helpful and it is in a good location. I would stay here again.

    동현2017-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed with my boyfriend at Sleepwell Hotel and it was an okay stay for the money we spent. Although the average price for staying in a place like this is lower in Tanzania, so if you're looking for budget you'd rather find a guest house upon your arrival to Mwanza (or other places in tz). I don't know in which rooms other guests spent their nights in this hotel but our room was definitely not clean. The sheets were not washed, which was my biggest concern (although the bed was very comfortable!). The toilet was also very dirty. Also, if you want to use the generator you have to ask for it. During our stay the power was gone maybe half of the time so it was rather disturbing. However, the staff is very nice - but as someone also commented they don't speak English very well.

  • I am very content and happy with my stay at sleepwell hotel. The staff was absolutely amazing and showed great hospitality. Akash was very flexible and easy to communicate with about all different stuff. Before my arrival he also gave great tips about where to go and how. The location of the hotel was perfect for us, close to town, close to good places to eat and very close to the shopping mall. I will definitely stay at sleepwell hotel again when I come back to Mwanza!

    Mwanza, Mwanza, Tanzania

    Tanzania’s second-largest city, Mwanza is set on Lake Victoria’s shore, surrounded by hills strewn with enormous boulders. In addition to being a stop on the way to Rubondo Island National Park, Mwanza is a great starting or finishing point for safaris through Ngorongoro and the Serengeti, ideally as a loop by adding in Lake Natron. Our house is spacious, newly built and lies in a safe and calm area with easy and fast connection to the City Centre by public transport.
    The house was built in 2016/2017 and is therefore in an excellent condition, located off the city centre bypass road (from the Buzuruga Bus Stand to the Airport). The neighbourhood is calm and safe, nonetheless we do have a night guard and watchdogs for security reasons. Commuting to Mwanza's City Centre is easy and comfortable with public transport, access to the Buzuruga Bus Stand at any time without traffic jam. Your bathroom have separat shower and toilet. The kitchen, living room and dining room we share with our guests (guests have their own fridge). There is also enough space for two cars in the front yard or for a tent or for playing football... Karibu sana!
    The neighborhood we are living in, is quiet (especially at night, when you just hear the cicadas in the trees) and safe, but nevertheless close to Mwanza's city centre.
  • Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit und haben uns sehr herzlich aufgenommen gefühlt. Sie hat einen Empfangsservice organisiert und wir hatten immer die Möglichkeit Rat und Hilfe zu bekommen. Egal wie früh wir aufstehen musste, war der Grühstückstisch frisch gedeckt. Dank Hunden, Nachtwächter und Umsorgung haben wir uns sehr sicher gefühlt! Vielen Dank für alles!!!

    Are you looking for a greener stay in Mwanza? You are warmly welcome to stay at the Mwanza Solar house! Our home is equipped with solar lightning system, waste recycling and composting facilities. Located in Isamilo a calm and safe area close to the city centre. The house is bright, fresh and clean surrounded by a beautiful semi-wild garden. Two bathrooms and fully equipped kitchen. We are renting out all three bedrooms as work has brought us to Morogoro for the time being (price is per bedroom)
    //Note: We give long term discounts for weeks/months. Our place is ideal for professional workers, looking for peace of mind concentrating fully on research/consulting/studying >>The Solar House We are an adventurous family of three, renting out bedrooms in our eco-friendly house in Isamilo. Best thing first: It is "green" - meaning it mainly runs on solar-energy! Sam is working for a German Solar company and has equipped the house with one of their products. Super reliable and powerful. The house has three bedrooms: Master bedroom: Spacious with a queen-sized bed, desk, shelf and a closet. It also has access to a private bathroom. Perfect for long-term stays or travellers who prefer a little more privacy. Single room: Cozy room with queen-sized bed and closet. For single traveller or a couple. Twin room: Simple room with two single beds. Perfect for sharing with a friend. All room doors can be separately locked! We offer a decent monthly discount! There are two bathrooms (one of them is only accessible from the master bedroom). They are clean, tiled and have “rain dance” showers with hot water. Since the regional government has their residences and offices in Isamilo water supply is quite stable and the water pressure high. Self-contained kitchen equipped with everything you need to cook delicious meals with locally produced veggies from the market or fish from Lake Victoria :) Our Scandinavian/Tanzanian (Ingjerd is Norwegian) fusion style living room has a sitting group, a desk and a dining table. The house has a terrace with a sitting area where you can chill, have a chat and a drink after a long day. Maybe while petting Otto. The outdoor cat. She is super sweet. The garden is awesome and the perfect location for a barbecue. The Isamilo area is cool and safe. It is calm despite the busy city centre being just a 10 minutes walk away. We often host guests from NIMR or the Isamillo International School because they are only 500 meters away. If you want to do exercise - the roads in Isamilo are good for running and Isamilo International School (just around the corner) has a professional, outdoor swimming pool. If you stay long-term you can join ultimate frisbee, soccer and other organized sports that take place just nearby. ….And if drinking beer is your favorite sport - fear not - there are several bars and pubs in the area :) The new and popular bar “Flexzone” is just around the corner. The international language training centre is (literally) next door and offers high standard swahili classes for foreigners. They also have a small preschool from 8 am-1 pm on weekdays. Don’t worry we barely notice them after they are done singing the national anthem :) For shopping Rock City Shopping Mall, U-turn supermarket and Kirumba market (veggies and fruits) are located within short walking distance. We share the compound with our long time friend Damien and his wife Anna. They are very nice and helpful if there should be any questions or issues while we are not around. Also they will do your check-in as we are usually not in Mwanza. BETWEEN US WE SPEAK GERMAN, NORWEGIAN, ENGLISH AND SWAHILI
    You´ll find out pretty soon, that Isamilo is a great area to stay at. Everything close by (Uturn supermarket, Rock City mall, small pubs and bars, as well as city centre in walking distance).
  • The Solar House is great - exactly what I needed in a good location. It meets all basic needs, internet is good, warm shower, its sustainable (which is a big plus for me). Great place to stay if staying for longer.

    Hanneke2017-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great place ideally located! Very safe area and cosy house. We enjoyed our time there, 5/5 would recommend.

    Nicolas2017-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Sam and Ina were welcoming, responsive and timely in communicating. Their Solar home is a model for living off grid-- a lovely haven that's well decorated and easy to relax or work in. The best housekeeper ever (Mama Suzie) cleans efficiently three times weekly and did shopping for me. Damian lives next door and helps with travel advice and modem updates. Note Sam's online housebook with tips for swimming, etc. The master bedroom and bath are huge and the best value I've found in East Africa, with a great bed, cool breezes (with screens!) and privacy. I loved reading my African books and staring out into leafy yard from the veranda. Such a gracious, warm setting: it's hard to leave. I hope to return.

    Diane2017-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place in Mwanza! All the comfort you need. 2nd time we are staying there!

    Nicolas2017-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Ina and Sam's Solar House for a month, and I couldn't have chosen a better place. It really is the best place to stay in Mwanza, with perfect hosts to match. Location is close enough to city center to walk, but also far enough to enjoy some quiet time at home. Would recommend this place 100%.

    The house is nice and very European style especially compared to most places that can be found in this region in Africa. Across the road is a nice bar with both local and European foods and drinks and an occasional disco (but noise isn't heard much in the house so no worries about sleep disturbance). Also another bigger house with 3 bedrooms available for both short term and long term rental is located on same land plot so if you need a bigger place, feel free to contact me as well :)
    The place is a 2 bedroom bungalow located in 5 minutes walk from Rock City Mall where you can do grocery shopping and also eat out at Cask Bar and Grill that has very International style foods and a good vibe. There is also a big garden on the land plot where the house is located where you can enjoy a BBQ/ braai or just hang out in the open air. I rent out one cozy self contained bedroom with a comfortable bed and 2 windows facing the garden.
    Good neighborhood with mostly expat/ international community living in the area, so it is pretty safe.
  • I had a very good time at Tanya's place. Tanya's appartment is a peaceful oasis quite in the centre of Mwanza with beautiful garden and lots of singing birds which is perfect for someone who wants to chill and relax. Tanya is a very warm host and though a foreigner herself, knowledgeable about Mwanza and surroundings which is very helpful for people who really want to do something in Mwanza. Check-in and communication with her was incredible flexible and easy-going. Thumbs up for that! And I hope our paths do cross again at some point on this beautiful planet! :)

    I am renting out 3 rooms in my spacious house with beautiful garden in a quiet and secure environment in Nyegezi area not far from the Saint Augustine University. I welcome short and long term visitors alike. Karibuni sana - you are warmly welcome!
    The master bed room with double bed has its own toilet and hot shower. The bed is equipped with a mosquito net. The house has a well equipped kitchen, a cosy dining and living room and a veranda. You can also relax in the garden with many colourful birds, sometimes cheeky monkeys and my two dogs who enjoy attention of visitors very much.
    The house is close to the lake. It is safe and very enjoyable to walk down to the lake through a village like area with fields and typical Mwanza rocks. Daily necessities can be purchased from small shops in the neighbourhood. There are also small restaurants in our street which serve local food.
  • Jana ist eine sehr liebe und kompetente Vermieterin, mit ihrer Hilfe lernt man das authentische Afrika kennen und gelangt an Orte die einem sonst verborgen bleiben. Die Unterkunft ist für dortige Verhältnisse komfortabel,nahe am Viktoriasee und man kann lokale Speisen und Früchte genießen. Alles in allem ein sehr schöner Urlaub mit Erfahrungen fürs Leben, wärmstens zu empfehlen.

  • Jana was so very accommodating. She went above and beyond in arranging a terrific sunset boat ride on Lake Victoria. Her home is beautiful and spotless. She has 3 dogs and a cat so I felt right at home (except her dogs live outside). JANA IS A FUTURE SUPERHOST!

    Newly renovated studio apartment in Mwanza that is located in a secure and quiet compound. Easily accessible to all parts of the city. Situated just a 3 minute walk from the newly built rock city mall, 15 minutes driving from the airport and 5min from town. It has it's own entrance and private bathroom with shower as well as small kitchenette with a sink, fridge, gas cooker, kettle and dishes. Breakfast foods will be provided (bread, eggs, fruit). We look forward to hosting you. Welcome!
  • Nice private location, though a little far from town. Right next to the mall, with good grocery stores. The kitchen was well stocked. Julius and Jade were great hosts, helpful and responsive.

    Bonnie2016-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • From the first acknowledgement of me having booked to my arrival, we had good contact and they had provided a letter, with all the info needed, on arrival (their change of plans meant they couldn't be there personally, although a relative was there and gave me a lovely warm welcome. The photo is an accurate description of the outside. The inside is clean, spacious and homely, and very interesting. I only wish I'd had more than one day (to read some of the books, and watch the birds),and will definitely come again and recommend it to friends. IF you are a young person, the walk from the main road is fine, if you are older, you will be made younger by the good walk up the hill. it's only 10 minutes. I came from the main bus stand in Buzuruga and used the public bus service which drops you at the nearest stop. It's not far from the airport either, nor from town, so very convenient too.

    For those who love to short-stay or long-stay in Mwanza this is one of three bedrooms available. These three bedrooms share a toilet and bathroom. It is 15min away from town and 2min from the airport.
    The house is spacious and quiet with lots of outside space. The dogs love attention and playtime. So feel free!
    We live close to both Mosques and Churches but the noise is never disturbing. It is close to town but far enough out of town to have a bit more peace and quite at night.
  • The stay at Andreas and Josephs house was good! Even if Andrea and Joseph werent there, their friend hosted me. He did everything for a good check in but unfortunately his car broke down as soon as we wanted to go to the accomodation. It was not his fault, but after a 16hours bus drive I was a but exhausted. The accomodation itself is very nice and you get a very comfortable room. If you want a toilet like in europe you shouldnt book this accomodation, but for me it wasnt a problem at all! Japhet was a really nice host to me and we were able to talk about very interesting things together. He is willing to explain you the political situation in this country or some east african literature! Ask him about thing like these when you have spare time in the evening. It is a bit outside the city centre but you need maybe 15minutes and 15cents to go to the centre with the bus! It is close to the airport! I recommend staying here!

    André2017-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • I can honestly say that I have never come across such hospitality. You won't be disappointed. My room was light and airy and comfortable. The house is a short ride from the airport and you can get local transport into town a short walk from the house. Andrea's and Joseph's local knowledge was invaluable and made my stay easy. I also took a one day safari trip with Joseph which was a once in a life time experience and a lot of fun. What ever questions you have they will answer them. If you are looking for a friendly relaxing place to stay - this is the place.

    Fiona 2016-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • I really enjoy stay in Andrea and Joseph house. The house is confy and welcoming. Unfortunatly I couldnt meet them but I feel like a met. They helped me a lot by message and provide everything that I need. I will try to go back. The room was clean, they provide good towels, soap and there is a nice beach close to the place.
