Welcome to the Eureka Pool House – your home away from home.
Eureka Pool House, has a nice double bed with mosquito net, own bathroom/toilet, Air Conditioner, small fridge, kettle and Wireless Internet.
The house is located on a private compound where there is one other house, a big swimming pool, and a nice, mature garden. We have two dogs, Samas who is 2,4 years old and Aiko, who is 5 months old
It is an ideal place to stay and explore Dar Es Salaam. Sites like Village Museum and Mwenge Market are close and a Fast Food place, bakery, local restaurants and big supermarket are in walking distance. Transport is available just around the corner to visit the rest of town and you will always come back to a home where you can relax and reflect on the day.
We offer privacy, relaxation, comfort and a unique way of experiencing Dar Es Salaam.

Although the room has a small fridge that we will stock with water, milk etc, and we provide facilities for making tea, coffee etc, we do not provide food.
An airport pick-up can be arranged for the cost of 30$.

I arrived into Dar and Freddie's driver had a sign for me at the airport without issue. Freddie and Christina's compound is beautiful with a great pool and white houses and well manicured garden. The space was two rooms with a very comfortable bed, desk, private bathroom with hot water, and possibly the fastest and most reliable internet I've had in Dar in 15 visits. Freddie's 2 dog pups were a welcome addition, very playful and rambunctious, and providing great security at night. Freddie was kind and helpful and generous to my needs throughout my 18 day stay. Overall a great visit - 5 STARS!!!
We had a little problem with finding the house, but when we arrived Christina and Freddie made us feel very welcome.
It's a real gem in a busy city.
City center is a short taxiride away.
All positive reviews are true!
The dogs are really adoreable, even for us as non dog lovers ;-)
We had to leave in the middle of the night, so Christina arranged an airport transfer, which was excellent.
Thx for a nice stay in Dar!
Great location and host - everything I hoped for! Plus the "local" bonus is especially handy in a city like Dar - Christina knows good spots to eat and can organize very reliable airport shuttles.
Had a nice overnight stay at Christina & Freddies' Pool House. Both are great hosts and the room is nice & clean. Thank you!
We really enjoyed our stay at eureka pool house. The pool house was small but cosy and clean. Christina and Freddie were excellent hosts. For example they washed our clothes for free and also helped me a lot when I slipped at the pool (watch out!) and hurt my self.
The only potential downside for some might be their two dogs, which are outside at all times and they seek a lot of attention, so you can't avoid them.
But we really recommend the Place to others!!
Staying in Freddie and Christina's pool house was a great experience! It was clean, in a good location, and had air conditioning and wifi. It is in a good location without being too central, and the hosts were friendly and helpful. I would recommend this location to anyone planning a trip involving Dar, and will return again if I have the chance!
