Location, location, location. We found the location of the apartment to be perfect - safe, close enough to restaurants and attractions yet away from the fray. We did get regular blasts from a nearby mosque of the call to prayer but either the ear plugs we found in the apartment or the air conditioner easily took care of it. The apartment is very spacious and comfortable. Our host was out of town but she did have someone we could contact if there were problems. A few things took a little getting used to, like needing to turn on the water heater 1/2 hour before using hot water and where to buy food and water. We rented the apartment for a week and after a safari so having a washer was great! It turned out a week is too long to spend in Stonetown but have really nice living quarters really helped.
A good and spacious flat for 4 in a convenient and safe location, great balconies, next to the Old Town.
Misses a bit the personal touch and style that we are used to from many other airbnb locations.
Senga picked us up at the airport and was helpful getting us oriented. He made himself available for problems (of which we had none) and questions.
Kathryn was very accommodating to our last minute change of plans. She was very understanding and friendly.
Senga was a great contact to have in Zanzibar and was punctual and helpful for all of our transfers around the island.
The apartment was huge and well air-conditioned. The wifi and the rest of the amenities were adequate.
The location is great as it is on the edge of stone town and allows easy access to all parts of the city. There were no issues with safety or security.
We were 2 couples and the flat could have easily accommodated more people if necessary.
Beautiful apartment - really well situated to see Stonetown. Would definitely recommend staying for a night or two before jumping across to the other side of the island. Our hosts were very helpful in all aspects, and made navigating things on Zanzibar very easy from the moment we landed.
My husband and our travel companions only stayed for one night before transitioning to the beach, but Kathryn's flat was great for a night in Stonetown. It's quite large and the kitchen has great amenities if you are interested in preparing your own food. Plus, Senga made it very easy to get from the airport to Stonetown.
The location is very convenient, next to old city center but not noisy. Rooms are large, it was clean and this is the perfect place for a family of four. If I had to make one suggestion only, it would be that the kitchen is not equipped enough for preparing meals and I would suggest to invest a few dollars in buying additional pans, knifes, a bottle of olive oil,.. ; but this is really a detail.
As a person going regularly to Zanzibar for work and knowing many places in Stone town, I really recommend this flat.

I have been living in Zanzibar since 2004 and have lovingly furnished my flats. I love to show people Zanzibar through my eyes and staying in my beautiful rooftop penthouse is a wonderful experience. Relax and Enjoy!
