Chagua was an amazing host and it was a pleasure to meet him and stay in this charming guesthouse only 30m away from the beautiful beach in Jambiani. Would highly recommend also the Karibu restuarant just next door.

Fun place to have some peace and quiet and Chagua takes care of everything u need


Karsten & Chatagua where most accomodating. Definitely would return . Patrick, Canada


A great place to stay in Jambiani! Chagua (the caretaker) really takes care of you and he knows everything about the village and things to do on your trip. He is also a great cook - don't miss his spanish omelette for breakfast! The place itself is clean, tidy and good value. I would definetely recommend the Fairytale Villa to anyone going to Jambiani.
