Easy communication and very nice house. The neighborhood is friendly and everything can be reached by foot. Though if you're just two people the price is too high compared to other places in Bagamoyo as there's no one you can directly talk to and no breakfast included as is with …

Hi Mira, Yes we agree our house is designed for families and large groups of friends... you are the first couple who have ever chosen to stay there! It is easier to book just one room in a guest house as a couple instead of staying in a 6 bedroom self-catering house. When you come back with family and friends, we are ideal!! Nevertheless, we hope that you had a nice stay and a good trip back.

The house is lovely and has a great atmosphere with the balconies and swahili style windows. We had a lovely time relaxing and cooking, and it is just minutes from the fish market and beach. -A very relaxing place!

Alison's house is perfectly centrally located in the old town of Bagamoyo. The house itself is absolutely gorgeous, newly renovated with modern amenities. The porch is my favorite part, it's spacious and offers a great view of a palm tree backdrop against the surrounding area, it…
