Hello Jin, thank you for your review; we are happy you enjoyed the uniqueness of our place. We always advise our guests to communicate with our captain if they have timely appointments (tours, catching a flight etc) as the boat cannot be always ready due to commuting other guests or fetching water to fill up our tanks for example.

Cool place to stay but it is very rustic and basic. The bed was really very uncomfortable and there was only a bucket of water and a jug to use as a shower. Getting to and from the shore is a bit tricky because there wasn't always someone available to take us by boat. The breakfast took ages and was not very nice to be honest, just some chapatti and a few pieces of fruit. Not really worth the wait! By addressing these small things the whole experience would improve drastically. The views of Stone Town from the boat were wonderful, and it was all-in-all quite clean for a houseboat. Peter was a great host to us, really concerned with our comfort and always willing to help with anything! If you're looking for a unique experience of Stone Town and aren't a fussy traveler then this place shouldn't be missed!
