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.

    Best place to stay in Jambiani – January 2024

    First of all, I want to say a huge thank you to Paula and her team! They did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Paula is an incredibly warm and welcoming person and this creates a beautiful aura in the place. The bungalow we stayed in was comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen. The huge advantage for me was the strong WiFi as I work remotely. Also, the swimming pools are really lovely. The whole residence has a very relaxed and serene atmosphere thanks to the amazing people working there who truly live out their passion for hospitality. The walk to the beach is just 2-3 min with lots of restaurants and bars. Overall, I wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Zanzibar!

    “We had a lovely time!” – April 2024

    We loved this place. Beautiful gardens, two pools so naturally one attracts the adults that want to relax and one families with kids. Hosts and all the staff super friendly. Spacious apartments with kitchen, lovely breakfast, short walk to the beach. You get some free water at the start and then just 5€ for big bottle so you never have to worry about water and plastic waste which was otherwise bit of an issue for rest of our Zanzibar trip. We had great time and would definitely come back.

    “We would book again anytime! Everything perfect!!” – February 2024

    EVERYTHING!! There is really nothing we did not like. Most of the pictures on Booking are a bit older, which is why the plants are currently much bigger, which gives the accommodation a great flair and the necessary privacy for the individual Apartments. Paola and Daniele, the owners, are really ALWAYS for you, even by phone, if you have a question or need good not to tourist tips for the island. Many people here in the reviews said that they found the breakfast monotonous. We can not confirm this in any case – after waking up, we looked forward to the lovingly prepared breakfast every day in the one week stay. Both pools are crystal clear clean until late at night, which is everything else common on Zanzibar. Cleanliness in general is more than 100%! You just feel like at home at Nyumbani!! Many thanks again for everything!

    “Thank you for making us feel at home… – April 2024

    I only have good words for Paola and all her Staff. Thank you for making us feel at home, for helping us with everything. We have really enjoyed the apartment and its facilities, it is a 10 place, highly recommended if you go with children as was our case. The breakfasts are very good and abundant. I hope we can return in the future!!!
