"The ideal spot to kick back after your safari adventure, this beach villa is a great for small families or a group of friends. Set back from the beach the villa offers a private and personalised experience. The friendly staff make sure that your stay is memorable and you will definitely enjoy the delicious meals cooked by your chef! I love that you can relax away from people and enjoy quality time with your loved ones; for those who are a little more active the warm Indian ocean is steps away, explore the local village at the end of the beach or head out for spot of shopping in the historic Stone town."
