Makofi Guest House

Nungwi Beach, Nungwi

Makofi Guest House is located in Nungwi, 200 metres from Spanish Dancer Divers. The property offers free WIFI in the common areas and is 100 meters from Nungwi beach.

A terrace or patio are featured in certain rooms. I spent just one night there but if there were more available, I would definitely have stayed longer. The place is really well managed, the staff were friendly, breakfast delicious, beds comfy, and overall it had nice vibes. Furthermore, there were many good places in there to do remote work and it was just a short walking distance from the beach. Would highly recommend.
