Sunny House Paje II

Paje Beach, Paje

Sunny House Paje II is situated in Paje, 13 km from Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park. The property is close to Paje Beach, Airborne Kite & Surf Village and Paje By Kite - Zanzibar. The property is 400 metres from Supermarket (Paje) and a 19-minute walk from Zanzibar Kite Paradise. I usually don't write reviews, I just rate places, but this place is really worth a review. The location is perfect; litterally 2 min from the beach and 6 min from the roundabout. It is not a packed place full of partying teenagers. It is more on the quiet side with 3 beds in the dorm amd a few private rooms. The owner, Renata, is very hospitable and gives you a list of the cheap and fun places that you need to do. Take her advice, it well worth it! The only problem was, we didn't have wifi in the house, but it was solved very swiftly: she asked me to use her wifi from the other house which was a few meters away. Good job!I definately recommand thi place.

Drifters Zanzibar

Boasting a sun terrace, this property is located near attractions such as Supermarket (Paje). The hostel has an outdoor swimming pool and luggage storage space. An absolute GEM of a place on Paje beach. Wake up every day, and in 30 seconds you're in the sea. I had planned 3 days at Drifters, but ended up staying for a week. Dave and all the staff were incredible hosts, everyone from the maids to the night guards were always so happy to help, absolute legends! Dave puts on a great communal meal every night, and it's great for solo travelers to meet others. The location doesn't get better, this place is on the best part of the beach away from the crowds but just minutes walking to everything. I'll be back. Have a great winter guys!
