The space
Welcome to our unique, beautiful and very spacious apartment - Balcony House - in the heart of Stone Town. We are a Danish/Zanzibari couple (Laurine & Said) who opened this place in June 2018 together with our good Zanzibari friend Mudy.

The 250m2 space consists of:
- 1 huge living/diningroom with wall-to-wall windows and seaview
- Balcony (very unique design!) with view over Kenyatta Road
- 1 more shared living room with armchairs, tables and couch (same room as balcony)
- 5 unique bedrooms for either long-term rent (volunteer, expats, residents etc) or short-term (tourists)
- 1 big and light kitchen (fridge/freezer, washing machine, gas cooker, blender, toaster and all necessary kitchen equipment)
- 2 shared newly-renovated bathrooms (toilet, sink, and shower - one of them with water heater)
- Big terrace with chairs, table and sunbeds.

For a visual impression of our beautiful place, take a look at the photos! If you are curious to see the other four bedrooms, these are of course also available through our Airbnb profile. You can book multiple rooms according to preference and availability (you are very welcome to contact us for special requests).

Cleaning:
All common areas in our B&B are cleaned everyday by our cleaning lady. However, it would be much appreciated if you leave the common areas in a nice condition after use (e.g. after cooking, eating, showering etc.) You can wash your clothes for free using the washing machine and hang it outside on the terrace for drying.

Arrival:
We can pick you up in the airport (Zanzibar) and transfer to our place in car (10-15 min.) at a $15/35,000TZS cost for max. 4 people. If you arrive with ferry we can arrange to meet you there and walk together to our place (20 min. walk). We can also offer car pick-up from somewhere else on the Zanzibar island to our place. If you find your way to the apartment yourselves, you will find it at Kenyatta Road (between Vuga Road and Shangani Street) and we will of course provide you with very detailed directions when the booking is confirmed.
