Hello! I was born in Stone Town but I moved to Jambiani to start a new life. Than I opened this guesthouse along with my brother.

We were a group of 6 kitesurfers and spent beautiful 23 days at Oteeny’s place. Before we arrived we thought the location is a disadvantage, but we soon realized it is not, we could easily and cheaply get a taxi to Paje and then enjoy the downwinder back to Jambiani at sunset.
The place itself is very simple decorated in local style. But when you go to Africa, that’s exactly what you want. The rooms are not the biggest, but we used them only for sleeping. We spent most of the time in restaurant (living room) or on a bar, because there is a free wi-fi and mainly because of the people.
Oteeny, his brother, Doctor and other staff are really the spirit of the place. We spent many hours talking to them and sometimes party with them. Moreover, there are living 3 cute cats and one super-friendly dog called Tiger. We had such a nice time with Tiger every morning when we had breakfast. The breakfast was simply huge. There is also a kitchen you can use, or just ask Doctor or the others for cooking something for you.
This is a definitely the right place to taste the Africa style. Simple, magic, fantastic, beautiful and friendly. I highly recommend the place, especially for group of young people or kitesurfers. It was our first time, but not the last time.
Da vi ankom til Zanzibar havde vores været arrangeret transport og vi blev hentet ved færgen. Super modtagelse af de venlige værter. Stedet ligger dejligt, nærmest på stranden. Værterne gør alt hvad de kan for at få os til at føle os godt tilpas. Maden er god, samtidig med at der er mange muligheder for at få god mad, når man går langs stranden. Det kan mærkes at værterne stadig er nye i branchen, men de formår at skabe en behagelig, afslappet, familiær og cool stemning
We had a great stay. Very basic rooms - but cheap - and in a great location right on the beach. Super for some chill out days.
Nyamkwi White Sand is definitely the best place you could find on the island, thanks to Oteeny, the soul of the place, which wonderfully welcomed us, and thanks to all the super friendly team. White sand, turquoise sea, at Nyamkwi White Sand we lived at the pace of nature and tides. I highly recommend it! I'll definitly come back!
A great place for (lowbudget) backpack-tourists.
Oteeny and Jacob were very helpful all the time.
The location is really on the beach and Jambiani had the best beach of Zanzibar to my opinion.
This place is absolutely amazing! It's right on the beach with amazing views for which Zanzibar is famous. The place strikes a wonderful balance between seclusion (it's not near large resorts and is away from town a bit) and convenience (many delicious seafood restaurants just a short walk away, easy to access via cab). The lodgings are comfortable, clean, well maintained and absolutely add to the beach experience. And finally, the host and his staff are wonderful. They were so friendly, accommodating, welcoming and helpful. I can't imagine our Zanzibar experience without their help and kindness.
A group of us stayed here in November and could not have been happier.
The accommodation was simple but very clean. The setting was absolutely stunning, and the staff very very friendly.
With snorkelling, scuba diving and swimming with Dolphins right on your door step you will never be bored!
Will definitely go back!
