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.

    ExceptionalNovember 2022

    Breakfast served in room on time at the requested time each morning. There is fruit, fresh milk and juice, cakes, biscuits, toast, coffee, tea and spreads like Nutella and jam. Rooms are cleaned every day. Paola, her husband and the local staff as well as security are extremely helpful, nice and accommodating. The property is very sustainability, rubbish is separated (!) and plastic is used as little to no plastic as possible. The area, the pool and the garden are very well maintained. The beach is about 4 minutes walk away and there are bars, restaurants on the beach, yet it is very quiet on the beaches of Jambiani. During the day at low tide you can see women harvesting seaweed on the beach. We would definitely come back!

    Peaceful comfort under the sun in ZanzibarDecember 2022

    Loved our stay here from start to finish. Paola and her partner were so welcoming and friendly. The room was perfect and big hot shower felt great. When we had a problem with our AC and had to switch rooms the hosts were nothing but kind, responding immediately and even helping us move our things. Paola is always a text away to help answer questions. She even tried helping me get back my shoes that I lost on the other side of the island. The kitchen facilities are perfect and you have everything you need to cook with. Beds are spacious and comfy as well. The grounds are gorgeous, private and peaceful. We enjoyed cooling off in both pools every day! WiFi is great and friendly guards are on duty at all times so you feel perfectly safe. Plus the cute cats will come and cuddle 🙂 Thank you all for an amazing stay!
