The Beach Retreat cottage is a traditionally built Swahili house, converted into a beach cottage in 2010 by Zanzibar Villas Ltd. This beach cottage derives its name from its quiet and private location, offering plenty of space and absolute privacy – you feel like you should be writing a book when you sit here on the terrace and gaze endlessly at the sea and beach life parading before you. In the garden you'll find a barbecue set, sun loungers, big sofa, tables and chairs, umbrellas and hammock. It offers you some extra shelter from sun and wind under the garden's big trees, whilst still being on the beach.

The sea comes right up to the garden gate during the high spring tides. The cottage is situated on the most un-spoilt part of the best beach in Zanzibar, with no big resorts or loud music it retains its charm. It is a perfect location for kite-surfing and snorkeling fans, beachcombers and shell hunters.

The cottage has good fresh water and mains power supply, all the windows are secured, but open and covered with Mosquito meshing offering maximum sea breeze through the house, one enters through the beach side front door into the lounge with the open kitchen and a separate WC

The lounge is simply decorated with African paintings and furnished with two large sofas/beds, a bureau and chair and coffee table, lamps and has a ceiling fan.

Off the lounge is the bedroom with en-suite bathroom, with hot and cold water, shower, toilet and two basins.

The bedroom has two traditional antique Zanzibar ¾ sized beds, which can be pushed together to make a big double with mosquito nets and a ceiling fans, two traditionally made wood shelving/clothes racks.

The kitchen is simple, but well equipped for four people: with a gas stove, toaster, kettle and fridge freezer you will have all you need to make your own meals.

On the terrace outside the front door we have put a large dining table with 4 chairs and a large sofa for lounging in the garden there is another small table sunbeds and a hammock and BBQ

Includes all linen and towels, daily house cleaner and villas management, night security guard

Bwejuu beach

Bwejuu beach is a broad and continuous beach sheltered by a broad coral lagoon and backed by palm trees, private houses and small hotels; this is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful beaches on Zanzibar. Its wide pure white powder sands stretch for kilometres from Dongwe village in the north to Jambiani in the south. Bwejuu offers the quietest spot with few tourists on the beach; you will feel like Robinson Crusoe. The beach at low tide offers wonderful views of seaweed ladies about their daily business of harvesting their seaweed crops and small fishermen on their traditional canoes. Sunrise is a spiritual event every morning! What a way to wake up. Later on children gather after school to search the beach for washed up shells. In the last two years, this has become one of the Mecca's for kite surfing and snorkelling. But it will always retain an enchanted desert island feeling – lost in time, you can only give in and relax…

"Very relaxing cottage right on the beach"

The cottage was in a great location and our host was very helpful. Whenever there was a problem he would assist us. The beach was amazing and relaxing. The nearby restaurants were a bit far and so we were glad we had a car.
