My place is composed by 4 rooms with shared bathroom and shower inside a beach house just in front of the indian ocean.
The place is very basic but full of good vibes.
We have restaurant and bar, hammocks and place to chill.
3 rooms downstairs and 1 room upstairs with balcony every one with fans, kabati (shelf for clothes) and mosquito net. We offer shared facilities in a cleaning and quite environment.
In the very green garden you can enjoy and chill out just in front of the sea along with my three cats and one dog.
There is a beach bar with nice music and a kitchen which can provide restaurant service as guests wish.
My guests will live the very basic Jambiani life style: barefoot and in front of the sea.
We can organize and arrange snorkeling, diving, sunset cruise, sunrise watching.
Interaction with Guests
I'm available at any time for any help or suggestion to give to my guests
We are in Jambiani Kibigija: sun, wind, beach life and indian ocean
There are dala-dala (public bus) going back and forth from Makunduchi to Michanvi at any time connecting Jambiani to those places and Paje at the middle of the trip.
You can also walk from Jambiani Kibigija to Paje, it is just 1h walking.
Many other guesthouses and beach bar around in a few minutes by walk.
Other Things to Note
No rules just Respect!
Nyamkwi is a perfect place to spend time during your trip to Zanzibar unless you look for a fancy hotel with a pool :). I stayed with my family (mum, dad, aunt and brother) for five days in three nice rooms having the house just for ourselves. All of us enjoyed a lot. The bar is really cool, staff is friendly, helpful and with great taste of music. It is easy to get there and to travel around by a local public transport or a hired taxi.
I would not hesitate to stay at Nyamkwi anytime visiting Zanzibar!
We had a bit of a bad start, but these guys did every thing to make sure that we forgot about this part... And we did!
It felt like a warm and safe harbour in many aspects to stay with these heartwarming brothers. The place is a gem and for sure our upscale stay in Matemwe can't compete with this special place, where you can also order great value local dishes! We really missed you guys and for sure if we ever return to Jambiani, we'll choose to stay with you guys for sure!
We were a group of 6 kitesurfers and spent beautiful 23 days at Oteeny’s place. Before we arrived we thought the location is a disadvantage, but we soon realized it is not, we could easily and cheaply get a taxi to Paje and then enjoy the downwinder back to Jambiani at sunset.
The place itself is very simple decorated in local style. But when you go to Africa, that’s exactly what you want. The rooms are not the biggest, but we used them only for sleeping. We spent most of the time in restaurant (living room) or on a bar, because there is a free wi-fi and mainly because of the people.
Oteeny, his brother, Doctor and other staff are really the spirit of the place. We spent many hours talking to them and sometimes party with them. Moreover, there are living 3 cute cats and one super-friendly dog called Tiger. We had such a nice time with Tiger every morning when we had breakfast. The breakfast was simply huge. There is also a kitchen you can use, or just ask Doctor or the others for cooking something for you.
This is a definitely the right place to taste the Africa style. Simple, magic, fantastic, beautiful and friendly. I highly recommend the place, especially for group of young people or kitesurfers. It was our first time, but not the last time.
Da vi ankom til Zanzibar havde vores været arrangeret transport og vi blev hentet ved færgen. Super modtagelse af de venlige værter. Stedet ligger dejligt, nærmest på stranden. Værterne gør alt hvad de kan for at få os til at føle os godt tilpas. Maden er god, samtidig med at der er mange muligheder for at få god mad, når man går langs stranden. Det kan mærkes at værterne stadig er nye i branchen, men de formår at skabe en behagelig, afslappet, familiær og cool stemning
We had a great stay. Very basic rooms - but cheap - and in a great location right on the beach. Super for some chill out days.
Nyamkwi White Sand is definitely the best place you could find on the island, thanks to Oteeny, the soul of the place, which wonderfully welcomed us, and thanks to all the super friendly team. White sand, turquoise sea, at Nyamkwi White Sand we lived at the pace of nature and tides. I highly recommend it! I'll definitly come back!
A great place for (lowbudget) backpack-tourists.
Oteeny and Jacob were very helpful all the time.
The location is really on the beach and Jambiani had the best beach of Zanzibar to my opinion.
