Dudesguesthouse was finished 2010. It has a beautiful garden with sunbeds, hammock, table and chairs where you can enjoy your breakfast and afternoons. Only 15 meters to the beach and still offers peace and quite, a possibility to get away from the the sometimes offensive beachboys and massage women. We have a beautiful big terrace facing the beach perfect for an afternoon rest. Our house has 3 double rooms with each their own bathroom, and there is an extra shower in the garden if you need to cool down or come back from swimming or spending time on the beach. All rooms are on the ground floor. There is a shared living room area, with a selection of international books. There is a kitchen where you breakfast is preprad, and you are welcome to use it if you wish to cook yourselves. All food except breakfast is not included. We constantly work on keeping a clean and homey guesthouse, so our guest can feel relaxed and at home. We live Upstairs. YOU FIND US BY FOLLOWING THE SIGNS TO UHURU BEACH BUNGALOWS, THEN TURN LEFT AND YOU WILL SEE OUR HOUSE.
Dudé is born in Jambiani and grew up in the village. He can offer advice and answer most of your questions about local life. He has worked with tourists the last 20 years. He can arrange most tours. His wife Helle is from Denmark. Our goal is to keep a clean and comfortable guesthouse and make our guests feel at home. Please note that there can be some outfall of electricity on Zanzibar. Useually for shorter time periods.
Jambiani is a typical Zanzibari village, with a beautiful beach, great for kitesurfing and other Beach activities. There are many restuarants along the beach and some in the village. Jambiani has more restaurants and bars to choose from than most other villages on Zanzibar but still remains a great place for relaxing and experience the quite village life. There are small shops were you can buy fruit, vegetable, pasta and others, and also local paintings the Tinga Tinga, Wood carvings and other things. Jambiani can boast of having the best village tour on Zanzibar and many tourists come from other parts of the Island for this tour. We are only about 15km from Kizemkazi famous for the dolphin tours. We are close to the only 'postoffice' in the town and one of the best and most popular restaurants in the village. It is possible to rent bikes and bike on the Beach, through the village (a somewhat bumpy road), travel by the local dala dala, or go by taxi. People in the village are very helpful and a lot of them speak some English. Jambiani is the perfect place for a relaxed holliday with the possibilty of different watersports and trips to other places on the Island.
