Had the most incredible time! The apartment is very spacious and beautifully decorated, and a great space from which to explore Stone Town. Very central location! Ire's orientation walk was really helpful, and he helped us find an open pharmacy at short notice on a Sunday. There's wifi, which works intermittently. Would definitely recommend to others. We'll be back!
We couldn't have asked for a better Stone Town experience! Brenda and Ire's home is truly a gem in Zanzibar. It was the perfect place to come back to after a long day out in the town, and a wonderful place to wake up in. We really loved every minute of it; the lovely furniture and exquisite decorations, the call to prayer heard through the open windows, and the chatter and bustle of a busy street during the day. If I ever come back to Stone Town (and I hope I do!), I would feel lucky to be able to stay here again. We were so pleased with the thoughtfulness of Brenda and Ire, as well as their friends, (Salum the taxi driver, whose services were invaluable, and Mbarouk, who showed us an amazing time on the spice tour), made our Zanzibar vacation that much more unforgettable. Thank you both for opening your home to us! We are truly grateful.
Tres bon accueil par Ire à l aeroport, il nous a ensuite emmené dans leur tres bel appartement. Quel joli décor ! Et quelle bonne situation dans la ville ! Nous avons passé un excellent sejour à Stonetown. Je recommande vraiment le logement de Brenda et Ire.
I have so many things to say about this apartment! Brenda's communication from the beginning was excellent, when we arrived Ire was waiting for us at the airport and gave us a quick tour of Stone Town and the neighborhood. The apartment itself is OUTSTANDING and extremely unique compared to other stone town apartments. The pictures don't do it justice. If you are going to be in Stone Town and need a place to stay, stay here. If you're thinking about staying anywhere else, stay here first. A seriously great experience and the perfect start to our Africa adventure!
We are three norwegian girls that stayed in this apartment for 4 days. We loved it and wished we stayed longer. The apartment is bigger than we expected and it is very nice. Everthing is in walking distance from the apartment. Brenda, Ire and Salum are very kind and helpful. We would definintely come back!

About the Host, Brenda Moot & Ire Apewe
Hi , I am Brenda, I have been working and living in Tanzania and Zanzibar since 1995. Since 9 years I have my own travel company called Brendafrica travels. When I am not traveling I live and work with Ire Apewe on Zanzibar or stay in Utrecht The Netherlands. I like to enjoy the best of the two worlds I live in.
Ire, my partner, is a great personality, he likes showing you all the inns and outs of Zanzibar. He is a good advisor, cook, sailor, tour guide, driver, social worker; born and raised on Zanzibar and always cheerfull. His speciality is sailing with visitors around Zanzibar in 4-7 days
We have a big network in East Africa, feel free to ask advise for your stay on Zanzibar. We like to give you the real Zanzibar experience. You can observe life in Stone town from the balcony or just join street life. Drink your tea in the gardens with a view over the sea and meet the friendly Zanzibari. In Utrecht we also live in the centre of the city in a beautiful area. Hopefully we will meet , we like meeting people either in Zanzibar, Tanzania or in Utrecht, The Netherlands. Welcome - karibu
