Property Description

Home Villa Arusha is located 15 minutes outside of Arusha Town in Muriet. Muriet is a small developing neighborhood full of families and small children. Staying here is a very different experience than staying in the busy town center. Home Villa prides itself on it’s friendly atmosphere and relaxed environment.

When you enter the gate of Home Villa, you will feel like you have arrived home. If you were to arrive on a typical evening, even before entering the gate you would be greeted by the sound of laughter. Your first impression is of a campfire surrounded by guests from different countries along with your host Hillary and his cheerful employees Michael and Neema. They may be playing safari trivia or Hillary may be teaching a begining Swahili lesson. You will be welcomed into the Home Villa family.

Most evenings after eating a typical Tanzanian dinner, guests gather around the campfire to talk about their adventures or perhaps play games. Hillary Ngowi, the owner does an amazing job of bringing people together and making Home Villa your home away from home.

Staying at Home Villa is a very different experience than staying in a big hotel or hostel in town. Hostels normally consist of communal living with many people and shared bathrooms. Big hotels mimic western living so it’s not a typical Tanzanian experience. Home Villa is a small oasis away from the noise and crowds of the city. All rooms here have their own ensuite bathroom so you have everything you need right in your room. When you venture outside your home away from home you will see how typical Tanzanians live. New houses line the main street where you will see children playing and women dressed in beautiful colors strolling down the road.

Hillary is such a lovely human being. He was a delight to share conversations with and was very helpful and kind. I was looking for a quiet and isolated place away from the city, and having a private room and it's private bathroom for such an affordable price as a solo female was a luxury. I am a tea fanatic and the kettle in the room is just my cup of tea! Asante Sane!
