Me and my two friends had a lovely stay in Stone Town, in this very charming apartment! It is truly awe-inspiring when you enter it, and especially the backyard balcony is a lovely place to chill out on hot days. Because the phone net in Zanzibar is a bit unstable, we had some difficulties reaching Ire before "check in", so I would maybe recommend pre-arranging a meeting place and time.
Ire is extremely helpful and accommodating, and he was available to help out with whatever we needed - weather it was the power out or visiting a house boat restaurant. I would definitely recommend staying in Gizenga street! It is a charming street, full of life and charming salesmen. There is a mosque right next to the flat, so you will wake up at 5 every morning by a loud speaker that could maybe need changing. But its all part of the charm :)
Brenda's apartment is the best deal in Stone Town (and for us it was the best deal in all Tanzania). The apartament is huge, well decorated, furnished and equipped. And what is the most important it has it own charm. The place is in the centre of the town, so you are really close to everywhere and with the help of Ire (very nice and friendly guy) you can't get lost ;) With no doubt this is a place to stay when in Zanzibar.
BTW, tip for all sea food lovers: if you want to cook sea food - ask Ire to show you where you can buy huge prawns (since there are not sold in the fish market).
Brenda's apartment is amazing. Its right in the middle of the town and is the the perfect place to experience Stone Town. You can walk to everything from the apartment. Ire was a great host and tour guide - he knows everyone in town!
Simply fantastic. I loved my time in Stone Town and staying at Brenda's place made the experience even better. I have travelled a fair bit and stayed in some unique places so often i can be quite underwhelmed when i arrive somewhere new. I am glad to say this was not the case with Brenda's flat. The place is even better than in the photos, a fantastic space, huge, airy, really well furnished and equipped with everything you could need. Whats nice is it feels like a real home rather than just a rental flat and its a great place to spend a relaxing time.
The area is great, v safe and friendly. Yes it is a little noisy but thats what you have to expect in a place like Stone Town central (just bring ear plugs if you need total silence).
Ire made the stay even better, very friendly guy, excellent orientation to Stone Town on arrival and on hand to help with other things when there.
I could go on and on as really this place was just marvellous. Hope i get to return one day!
Brenda is a very friendly and pleasant person to deal with. i was very much looking forward to staying in her apt in stowntown, but unfortunately i was not able to, after being in an accident that left me unable to travel. she was very understanding and sent some kind words. i really hope to travel to zanzibar this year and stay at her place. i would not hesitate to do business again.
The apartment is absolutely gorgeous and right in the center of Stone Town. Its spacous and has everything you need. The streets of Stone Town can be a little noisy at night but the location makes up for that.
The Stone Town Apartment is THE place to stay if you are looking for an authentic Stone Town experience. It is beautifully decorated, large and spacious, and has everything one might need. The location is superb, and everything we needed to see or do was but a stone's throw away.
Ire is an amazing host, and his "introduction to Stone Town" tour got us immediately off on the right track in exploring this colorful, vibrant city.
We'll definitely be back!
This was the perfect place to stay! We felt so safe, secure and cared for in every way. The location is ideal for a Stone Town experience. The apartment is adorable and quite large. Salum, Brenda & Ire's friend, and taxi driver was such a help in getting us to and from the airport as well as our various excursions!! Ire showed us the ropes around the neighborhood upon arriving, making us feel welcome and comfortable right away. This was a great place to stay, and we highly recommend it!
Very easy communication. Ire was very friendly and helpful showing us the area after meeting us on arrival in Stone Town. Reliable taxi organized by him for very early departure to airport.
The apartment is great for soaking up the atmosphere of the old town from the lovely balcony. Very clean place, huge!!! beautiful bedroom with very high ceiling in an old traditional house. Fans, cool and quiet during the night.
Mobile phone provided for those who do not have their own local SIM card.
This is an extraordinary place to stay in Stone Town!
The apartment is the perfect place to stay in Stone Town. It is in the core of the old city, and has a very historic feel. It is also spacious and has all the right things for a home from home. Ire - thanks for all your help, and the tour of the town. You make your guests feel very much at home. All the best. Keith
