It is really up to you as little or as much as you want. You are welcome to join us for a drink or a meal if they want to hear about life on Zanzibar if you wish or we can just be there to say hi and bye and anything in-between!
We prefer it if you use "our" taxi driver to meet you at the airport and transfer you to Indian Ocean House, he is a careful driver and knows just what our guests need in terms of popping into a shop or two for wine, groceries and anything else you may want or need. He speaks good English.
Reasonably....smoke outside please!
Gary and I are an Aussie/ South African couple. We have lived in Zanzibar for 21 years and are both involved in the leisure and hospitality industry. You can pick our brains on anything to do with Zanzibar (we know all sorts of interesting things for you to do!) and we are both mad on safaris so can help you there too. We are on hand if you want a chat or a meal together but we are also perfectly content to respect your privacy and down time. We adore our pets and hope you like them too, if you don't we can keep them away. We are beautifully helped by Adanan, Mariam and Irean who will keep the house looking lovely and clean. Come prepared for lazy days in the water and the sun. And of course we can help you book your diving and snorkelling too. We are movie and TV addicts but have very different tastes in books to each other. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the most beautiful and quiet part of Zanzibar (not that we are biased or anything)
