I am Canadian and have been living in Tanzania since 1991, My daughter is taking over this listing. To promote her new venture, book the Garden Guest House with Daatih, it is the same lovely space and service at a temporarily reduced rate.

The accommodation in a quiet neighborhood of central Arusha is clean and safe. I spent six nights in Linda's garden house and really enjoyed the tasty food (and coffee!), the inspiring talks and relaxing in the beautiful garden. Thank you Linda and Daatih, thank you airbnb.
We had a great stay at Linda's. She's very welcoming, gives you precious advices about everything (the town, the safaris, the Meru climb...). The room is lovely in a very nice garden where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and tea time :) We had the feeling to stay at a friend's!
We loved meeting Daatih and staying at her guesthouse. It is very nice and very convenient. Daatih gave us great insight into the education system as she was helpful with taxis and restaurants. Unfortunately we did not meet Linda. She was away at the time
Linda and her daughter are great hosts - extremely kind, welcoming and very helpful. they made us feel at home from the very first moment we arrived and helped us with taxis, information (not only on Arusha but on many other places) ands warm clothes :) the room in the garden house is comfortable, charming and private - so if you are looking for a nice place to stay with easy going hosts who will make you feel at home , this is your place! Thank again Linda and Dalit, hope to visit you again soon. francesca & David
Linda and her daughter were very nice and welcoming, I enjoyed chatting with them and also with their very friendly neighbors next door who run The Station restaurant & bookstore.
The room is simple, clean, and in a nice quiet neighborhood that is an easy walk to central Arusha. Probably best for one person or two friends, rather than a couple, since the room is furnished with two single beds. If I return to Arusha, I would definitely consider staying here again.
Linda's central garden house is Arusha was a lovely and calm place to stay. It is situated at a walking distance from the city centre, with a nice green garden to relax. Linda herself was very welcoming and helpful, we'd certainly recommend to stay at her place!
Although it was a bit hard to find (street numbers were out of sequence), the cottage was as described and the guard and housekeeper were helpful.
The bathroom was quite large and it was the best shower I had during my Tanzanian trip. The beds were comfortable.
I was allowed to make a breakfast in the morning.
I would definitely stay here again.
Also, there is a delightful place next door called "The Station" were we had drinks and dinner, which I would also highly recommend for a relaxing and fun outing. They also sell books.
We only stayed at Linda's place for a night but we enjoyed our time there tremendously. Linda is very helpful and organized, and her dogs are lovely. The place is very clean, and the shower is great - strong and with a very steady supply of hot water, which is not the case in many places in Tanzania! There is no AC in the guesthouse, but the evening breeze through the windows makes up for it. We had a delicious Indian dinner next door at the Station, which is run by Linda's neighbors.
We highly recommend anyone who wants a safe, clean, and comfortable place to stay in Arusha to go to Linda's guesthouse!
Lindas garden house is a relaxing, lovely and safe place in Boomtown Arusha. It is close a minimarket and restaurants (check out Sazen as well as Fig&Olive on Haile Selassie Rd). Her driver picked us up at the airport, and her housekeeper helped us with our laundry. Her personal massage therapist did wonders. Afternoon chai with homegrown bananas was a pleasure.
Linda, her daughter, her grand children and her dogs were wonderful hosts!
Grata experiencia compartir la casa de Linda. Un perfecto lugar para descansar del ruido de la ciudad. Un lugar cómodo y práctico. Linda facilita todo lo que le pidas. Si buscas tranquilidad, disfrutar del aire libre y estar cerca de la ciudad y una buena atención, este es tu sitio.
It was a great privilege to have another Airbnb host Linda Williams, from Tanzania at Cozy B&B. Even though her visit was short, and restricted by her special meeting at the international community school, we still did learn a lot from each other and had a great time together. Cheers and looking forward to visit Tanzania and stay at your Airbnb :)
Very friendly, broadminded and sympathetic woman. I was unfortunately very busy the days that she was my guest so didn't have a change to talk to her as much as I would have liked.
I was happy to be her host.
