“It was wonderful”

We are back home after a wonderful time at Ocean view Villa with sun, sand, nice staff and delicious dishes prepared by Futari. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to stay at your wonderful villa. Kind regards Rolf and Daniela

“Heavenly quiet, hidden gem!”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2013

OceanView Villa is Pwani Mchangani's hidden gem! My family and I had the most relaxing stay at this beautiful villa. We couldn't dream for more! Lounging under the shade of the beach umbrellas and the coconut trees with cold drinks by our sides and taking-in the awesome view of the Indian Ocean was just breathtaking! Rooms were great, clean and perfect service! Each evening we enjoyed delicious Swahili meals prepared by Futari and served on the verandah facing the ocean. We are definitely coming back

“Excellent for vacation, wonderful staff, and lovely beach”

Reviewed 9 May 2013

We stayed in this beautiful bungalow, right on the beach and had a great time! The accommodation was spotless and the staff was so friendly and accommodating, we felt so well taken care of and spoiled to the bones. We enjoyed the lovely beach and the tranquility of the surroundings. Great for relaxation! We loved lounging under the cool shades of the makuti beach umbrellas, and most of all the privacy. Swimming in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean was a delight. We certainly intend to go back!

“3 wonderfull weeks”

Reviewed 30 Jan 2013

After a return with some obstacles we safely arrived back in Belgium. We had a fantastic three weeks in Zanzibar that we will not forget soon thanks to the stay at the Ocean view Villa. On this way we want once again emphasize how good Futari and her team have contributed to this exceptional 3 weeks. The farewell was very difficult for us to take from people we love and who have done everything to help us those 3 wonderful weeks. Futari spoiled us with her cooking, her jokes, the maintenance of the rooms and the table which they decorated with flowers for our dinner. She gave every day all of her. It is incomprehensible for us that someone gives bad critique about Ocean view villa. Some people will never be satisfied and they would better stay home instead of destroying someone's reputation. For us it was the 2nd time we made use of Ocean view villa, we would never come back if the first time was not good. The first time wen I was in Zanzibar, was in November 2009 and I was invited by the Gen.manager of Waikiki, Roekia, the former girlfriend of my friend Raphael. She died there in august 2010. We also know Ingrid very good, better known as "mama Jua" who has a house a little further than your place and we can us it for free if we want. But my wife and I we still prefer staying at Ocean view villa. If we once return to Zanzibar, we will definitely stay in Ocean view villa. The quietness and the location is very important for us. I like big game fishing and was many times fishing there and with success as you can see on the pictures. While my wife was quietly enjoying a good book surrounded by manicured garden of the villa with Rambo as her personal bodyguard. What could be better than to eat your own cached fresh fish, prepared with love by Futari and her team? What is nicer than to swim in the Indian Ocean at 7am just only 20 meters away? We will never stay in an impersonal all in hotel

“bien mais...”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2012

Nous avons passées de très bonnes vacances à Zanzibar et Ocean view villa. Le village est tranquille et typique, la plage privée est très belle et propre, le jardin également. Tout le personnel est charmant et accueillant. Un gros bémol toutefois, que nous n'avions pas compris avant d'y être, il faut payer 30 USD par jours en plus de la location si l'on veut se servir de la cuisine...On est pas seul dans la maison, il y a du personnel qui passe régulièrement, les enfants ne sont pas les bienvenus dans la cuisine...On se sent presque obligé de commander à manger et ça coûte bien plus cher que de se faire à manger sois même...On ne se sent pas complètement libre... Nous sommes passés outre ce petit imprévu et nous avons passé de super vacances quand même. Merci

The villa was so homely and comfortable, incredibly clean and tasteful. Futari and the staff was very welcoming and really made our stay special. The surrounding beach was beautiful and very quiet. We all loved our week here, thank you very much!

“Amazing stay in Zanzibar!”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2012

We loved our stay at OceanView Villa. The staff were so caring and friendly. Futari was like a second mother to us the entire stay and we will definitely miss her and the others. If we ever come back to Zanzibar we would stay here again for sure!

Response from the owner Dear Enakshi We truly appreciate your wonderful review and we are so happy to hear that our staff treated you with lots of attention and care. Futari loved you staying there and is still missing you. You are always welcome!

“An amazing place”

Reviewed 6 Jun 2012

The house is located in Pwani Mchanngani, a small town at east coast of Zanzibar. If you like calm, quiet and relaxed places, you shoud go to Ocean View Villa. The beach, that was cleaned every morning for us, is so beautiful, and the people who work there so friendly and helpful. They have a nice dog, Rambo, who likes people and looks for friends. The house was always clean and the food was delicious and ready always on time. We really liked our stay at Ocean View Villa.

Response from the owner Dear Licinio We are out of words to express our gratitude to you for writing a review that is quintessential to OceanView Villa property, environment and our kindly staff; and our dog Rambo who loves a kind mzungo. Our true appreciation and best wishes to you and your family Lilia& Alex

“Tropical paradise”

Reviewed 10 Feb 2012

Arriving at this fantastic villa and gorgeous garden took us by surprise. The OceanView Villa is an absolutely fabulous place to stay in Zanzibar. It's located right on the beach, surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden. Beyond our expectations, the beach was spectacular and immaculately clean. We really liked the privacy of the beach in front of the villa. There, under the thatched umbrellas, relaxing on the beach beds, we were afforded total privacy and relaxation, undisturbed by anyone. The views from our bedroom and the ocean front veranda were stunning! Another pleasant surprise was how pampered we were by Futari and the rest of the staff. The food at the Villa is fresh, delicious and low in price, compare to other places around. The coconut rice and spicy rice were out of this world and all the other Swahili dishes on the menu. If you have your laptop/notebook with you, Futari has the USB Internet stick for you to connect to Internet for a very low user fee. We enjoyed our WiFi connection all through- out our stay. Finally, thanks for making our vacation so very special and unforgettable. Karen and family

Starting 4th Feb 2011. Our stay has been exactly what we wanted. -The whole place to ourselves. -Lots of safe swimming. -Quiet and sandy beach. -A night sky to die for. -Really good weather. -6am every morning out of the gate onto the beach to watch the sun rise. -Long walks and short runs. -Good food with lots of fish. -Good service and helpful staff. We did a few trips and were impressed by the Spice farm, Stone town, and the coral reef snorkling. All trips including airport transfers were well organised. We would recommend it to anyone.
