"Beautiful home, wonderful staff, very near the beach"

Hi Mary, Thanks for your review. I am glad you had a nice stay in my villa. As discussed I am sorry with what happened with the beach during your stay. The tide brought some rubbish from the sea but this could have happened anywhere.. I only experienced it once in many years and it was very unfortunate. A fishing boats or oil tanker must have discharged their rubbish in the sea and it ended up right in front of my house that day :(
But I can assure you that usually the beach is as per photos, beautiful white and clean. I traveled 5000 miles to build this villa and wouldn't have done it if it wasn't on one of the most beautiful beach in the world. Zanzibar and Jambiani especially are famous for their beautiful white sandy beaches. I also work with the hotels nearby to ensure it gets cleaned in the very unlikely event this happens.
The whole of Jambiani is very swimmable and even at low tide you can walk 5 minutes towards the reef and as per photos you can swim also. Some people only swim at low tide as the colors are even more beautiful.. The photos speak for themselves.. The sea view and the landscape are unique..
The village was loud that week with traditional music and drumming for the end of the Ramadan cerebration, I actually wish I was there to experience it with the people from the village, it must have been real fun, and marriages also in that period. But never late at night.
Zantel the internet provider had to be switched to a more efficient provider and you are right, there was no wifi in the four days you stayed in the house. I am sorry fro this, it is now sorted and very efficient.

Kind regards, Raphael
