    My boyfriend and I had an absolutely lovely stay at Kipepeo. Shadrock (the manager) is a wonderful guy and will help you with anything you need. He’s got very good prices for tours and such lovely family and dogs! Would definitely recommend. X

    Shadrock and the rest of the staff were the highlight of my stay. Laid back but still very helpful and welcoming. The breakfast was also a winner! My room was pretty minimalist which for the cost in villages like Nungwi and Paje I now realize is fair. However, better cleaning and hot water would’ve made a real difference.

    It is a bit hard to give a review to Kipepeo because I actually didn’t stay there. My reservation got lost and it was fully booked. However the manager Shadrock found me a place to stay next door with a private bathroom for the same price so that was good! The place itself is located in a quiet area next to a beautiful and almost secret beach. The kitchen was closed so I can’t judge the food either. And finally Abdallah who is working there is awesome and we had great conversations!

    Very Good

    Kipepeo is a great budget option for staying in Nungwi. Set a short walk away from the main tourist beaches, it enjoys close access to beaches on the east and west of nungwi. Shadrock is a friendly and accommodating owner who will endeavor to help. The property itself is quite basic but that is reflected in the price. Could do with more privacy for toilets and showers.

    Rooms are very comfortable and clean. Owner, Shadrock, is very welcoming and friendly and cooks amazing food. Bathrooms are a bit simple and toilet seats were broken. Only other thing is that it is a bit further out of the main town centre and from the beach.

    A bungalow guesthouse with individual cabans in a nice garden property. the pros : Nice staff, Nice garden. the cons : difficult accessing the beaches as There is most often no public access through the big resorts which have private like beaches, wifi is not unlimited. It's off very often. The bathroom is not so clean. I suggest looking on other websites than website for Nungui...

    Very friendly & helpful owner. however the place is rundown. The rooms are extremely hot, no fan, mosquitoes in the room, shower is basic, toilet is broken & not clean, wifi does not work. We even spotted a rat on the roof at night. If basic & cheap is what your looking for can make it work. However there is not really a social vibe either so your better off staying at an airbnb in the north.

    Shadrock (the owner) and the other staff are so nice and welcoming. They also serve a delicious breakfast! Bathrooms are less than ideal. I’m ok with a broken toilet and a more or less spigot for a shower, but no working sink and aunts there were aunts everywhere. Girls with thick hair should plan for a half hour to wash your hair. Bungalows are also full of aunts and other bugs that the mosquito nets can’t seem to keep away from you.

    No light in shower so have to shower during the day. Very hot in rooms at night. Sandy floor so nothing stays clean. No proper loo. But nice place and good food and WiFi. Really close to 2 beaches.
