Hey, I'm Emil I grew up in Dar Es Salaam, but now I live in Zanzibar. My love for simple tropical Island Life moved me to settle here in this beautiful paradise of Africa. I like traveling, adventure, reading books, movies, watching sports, meeting new people, learning new hobbies and languages. I am also a professional and passionate real estate manager who currently manages several buildings in both Zanzibar & Tanzania mainland. The Train's House is my third Airbnb project. My apartments are located at Stone Town which makes them easily accessible to all major restaurants, beaches, local markets, historical places and other tourist attractions. Every major service you can think of can be found not far than ten minutes’ walk from my property. At The Train's House I won't just offer you a great accommodation, I will also be committed to make your stay entertained from a range of inhouse activities at our lounge and guide you to explore more interesting adventures in the archipelago of Zanzibar.
