Popo House is a self sufficient eco house with solar electricity, water from our well but with 5G fibre optic WiFi .
It is simple eco living in a stunningly beautiful & peaceful location. If you value your independence & privacy than it would be perfect. A chance to escape from the stresses of modern life and hang in a hammock,eat fish directly from the sea and drink coconut water direct from the tree. It has its own naturally private small beach and masses of reef to explore.

Le logement
Popo House is a light , breezy spacious house . It has 2 ensuite double rooms with large double French windows that open nearly directly onto the beach! You can sleep with the windows wide open and listen to the sound of the sea.
The bathrooms are simple with cold water showers & flushing loos.
There is an high ceiled open plan kitchen / sitting room , very simply furnished , again with windows opening out to the sea.
The kitchen has a small solar fridge/freezer and a 2 ring gas cooker or you can make a fire & cook/bbq on the beach.
Outside are sun loungers and natural coconut palm umbrellas to offer shade from the African sun or relax and watch the seaweed ladies and fisherman at their work.
There is a small naturally private beach metres from the house.
Popo House is set in our own plot of land where the local goats and cows have free range . We are slowly planting fruit trees and hopefully will have a vegetable patch soon - work in progress !
Popo does have 5G fibre optic WiFi !

Accès des voyageurs
The whole house and outdoor space is exclusively yours .

Autres remarques
It is in a quiet location with only one hotel nearby . You will have to travel to Jambiani for other restaurants , bars, shops etc . It is about a 10 minute drive .,
Guests will have the use of 2 bikes free of charge but a deposit of $40 per bike will be taken at the beginning of the stay and will be refunded when you go as long as the bikes are as they were at the beginning of the stay. If they get stolen under your watch the deposit will be kept to go towards replacement .
Also the house is near the beach so you can hear the sea quite loudly at night . The windows have no glass only bars and mosquito netting in some places to allow a lovely breeze in but this does mean the sea is quiet loud.There is no air-conditioning and no fan - we rely on the breeze from the sea - it can be warm at certain times of the year .
The house is set in our own plot of land and the local goats and cows wonder around freely making their way to the water hole at the back of the plot !
There are 3 cats, Simba , Dudu & Nicole , who live near to Popo .

Jambiani/Shungi, Zanzibar Central/South Region, Tanzanie

Popo House is in a very quiet area of Zanzibar island just south of Jambiani. There are a few fisherman who hang out under a tree about 500m away and you will see the seaweed ladies on the reef in the mornings . The sea is very tidal where we are going out a long way to reveal the reef which is interesting to wonder around looking at all the marine life. There is a small naturally private sandy beach which is nice to sit / sunbathe/ have BBQ’s on. It has to be noted that there are coral rocks on the beach ( see the pictures) and swimming is dependent on the tide. There is a lovely hotel called Blue Moon 300m away which has a wonderful natural swimming pool. The owners are happy for us to use this but they do like you to buy some drinks or snack etc. The food and drinks there are good and I have often gone there for a good Italian coffee , cake and a lovely swim.The staff there are lovely too.
Jambiani is a 10 minutes ( 45 min walk ) drive away and as well as an awesome sandy beach it has a selection of beachside restaurants and a few local shops .It also offers kite surfing , diving , yoga , Friday night beach parties and other activities so if you want to dip into ‘mzungu’ life it is easy to do.
Paje is about 10km away and is busier and has a small supermarket which even sells sourdough bread !
Jozani Forest is nearby as is the restaurant on the island .
We are near the dolphins at Kizimkazi but please make sure you go with eco , nature friendly tour company as I worry about the dolphins wellbeing.
Makanduki is a small local village where there is a petrol station and a few local shops and stalls. There is also a doctors clinic there.
Unguja ( Zanzibar town ) is about 1.5 hours away and is definitely worth a visit is simply to walk around the old Stone Town .
Nungwe , about 2.5 hours away, is in the north of the island and this is the busiest beach area of Zanzibar island . It is where the famous full moon parties take place once a month .

Pendant votre séjour
When we are in Zanzibar we will be in the small guest house at the back of Popo House otherwise it is left in the care of our caretakerJuma (his English is very limited ). Daddi is our main guy for organising trips , airport pick ups. His English & Italian is good . My son in law also lives in Stone Town so even if we are both back in the UK there will always be someone who can meet you at the airport and will be available to ask about , bike hire , trips , car hire etc . Juma is always there. Please note it isn’t a bed & breakfast but the hiring of an independent beach house.
A Massai comes at night as security too . He will be around the area .
There is always someone there night & day for security although it is a very safe area as at the moment there is little development around. Generally though the idea is that you independent and have total privacy.
If you need help with booking car hire we can help arrange that too and have details of a local taxi and a local doctor .
