Welcome to

Nyumbani Residence

Nyumbani means “At Home” in Kiswahili, and this is the feeling we would like to extend to our guests. Twelve self-contained apartments provide quality and comfort for couples, families and groups of friends, offering a perfect self-catering base for your Zanzibar holiday.

Located on the outskirts of Jambiani, Nyumbani Residence is situated in a great location with a three-minute walk to one of Zanzibar’s best beaches, which invites you to relax or explore. Take a long walk on the beach, discover Jambiani and the coastline up to the bustling village of Paje, or try your hand at a range of water sports activities offered nearby.

Situated atop a small hill with a beautiful outlook, the property is frequently awash in a cool ocean breeze – most welcomed in Zanzibar’s tropical heat. Our apartments are designed for guests seeking great comfort and tranquility while taking in the island’s natural beauty. While your apartment has all the facilities to cook a delicious lunch or dinner yourself, plenty of restaurants are within walking distance and offer a variety of offers to our guests.

    “Superb” – July 2022

    Nice green area with large rooms. When we arrived there was already water in the fridge and a first meal for cooking for ourselves was ready. We felt very comfortable and the staff were very nice. Thank you for a nice stay Paula 🙂

    “Absolutely amazing from start to finish” – July 2022

    Just back from this beautiful place in Jambiani. We were the first guests in after they have refurbished the place. They have done an amazing job! The apartments are very specious and very well equipped ( you even get your own blender to make your juices etc) We’ve stayed in many self catering apartments around the world and this was one of the best in terms of how well everything was planned (sockets near beds, aircon, kitchen equipment etc.) We loved having breakfast out on the veranda watching the sunrise, Jambiani village and the beach are only 5min away and you can get to Paje by car in 5 min as well. Paola – the owner is super nice and friendly, ready to give you recommendations or advice about the island. I can’t not mention the gardens and the pools – yes 2 pools to enjoy, our 5 year old daughter loved splashing in the pool while we relaxed in the beautifully maintained gardens. The residence has 24h security so we felt very safe all the time. We can’t fault anything and will be back if we visit Zanzibar in the future.

    “Exceptional” – July 2022

    We have a wonderful stay at Nyumbani Residence. The apartments are very specious and fully equipped for cooking, always clean thanks to the cleaning ladies. Part of every apartment is a big terrace where you can enjoy breakfast. Apartments have A/C. The beach is only 5 min walk as well as Jambiani village with small supermarket. If you want to do bigger grocery shopping, the host Paola can call you a taxi which takes you to Paje, also 5 min ride. If you prefer eating in restaurants, there’re some good ones by the beach. Paola is very kind and helpful if you need anything (plan a trip, taxi). The surroundings is as beautiful as in the pictures. There’re 2 pools with sun-beds and beautiful garden. Residence also has 24h security so it’s super safe. Definitely recommend to have a stay.
