About this listing

The space

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, walk-in wardrobe and Wireless Internet.
The house is located on a private compound with one other house, a big swimming pool, and a nice, mature garden. We have two dogs, Samas who is 4 years old and Aiko, who is 2 years 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.

**** PLEASE NOTE ****
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 25$.

Freddie and Christina are amazing hosts! They welcomed us to their wonderful pool house, which is cozy and clean. Exactly what we were looking for. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who's thinking of visiting Dar.

Eureka has a nice secluded garden with a nice clean pool. It's exactly as described and has everything needed for a short stay. The internet is good. Freddie and Christina are friendly laid-back hosts

The apartment is very safe, secure and comfortable, and I was really happy I chose this place to stay during my visit. The hosts Freddie & Christina are both very friendly and always willing to help, give advice if you ask for something, etc. but they also respect your privacy at the same time. I liked that is was walking distance to a good shop and some takeaway places, but also cheap and fast to get to some other good restaurants from there. Their children are adorable and the dogs are very friendly. Overall a great experience, thank you.

I had a most enjoyable stay at the Pool House. A little oasis of tranquility close to all the facilities of the Msasani peninsula, the beaches at Mbezi and Jangwani. The house is small just as in the photos but has everything needed for a stay of days or weeks. The pool is always clean and lovely to cool off in. Bajajis are easy to find and if staying for a longer period it's worth having numbers for 3 or 4 so you can be sure of getting one if going out in the evening. The two dogs are good guard dogs but friendly and playful. Aloyce, the caretaker is friendly, helpful and does a wonderful job of laundry as well as keeping the garden and pool clean. Freddie and Christina are friendly, helpful hosts and easy to be with. Thoroughly recommended and I'll definitely stay again any time I'm in Dar

Second visit to Dar and this was a great place to stay. pool House is basic but is clean and has everything you need. Eureka is well Situated - just a walk away from where I was working. Freddie is very friendly and helpful and Christina who was away during my stay kept in touch through email to make sure all was well. Overall a great place and I will ask to stay again if I return to Dar.

Christina responded very fast, personal and accurate to all inquiries prior to our stay and organised the very polite driver, Maneno, to welcome us at the airport in the middle of the night. Freddie welcomed us and was throughout our stay extremely helpful and made us feel totally at home. The two dogs became our best friends. The garden is a peaceful oasis well kept by Aloyce who is working hard from dusk till dawn to keep the place up. The Pool House has a good bed, everything you need and is as shown on the pictures. We would love to come back. Highly recommended.

Recently our beautiful twin girls Maya and Amina have joined our family and life has been quite different since then.

We love to travel the world, good food, good conversations and are always looking for new, interesting projects. Though at the moment the focus is more on our little girls :)
