Hi, it is a five minute walk to the beach front promenade/ferry terminal and we walked around there all the time, had no problems and felt safe.

Where is the exact location, and how many minutes walk from the ferry terminal?
Warere Town house is at the top end of Stone town. It is 3 minutes walk from the ferry terminal. Maybe the closest of all accommodation to the ferry. Stone town (old part) is small and easily walkable north to south in 15/20mins. Enjoy!

Hi mytec1, thank you for your interest in the Warere. Our family room has one double bed and two single beds. The single is quite wide, about 4ft (1m) across so if your children are young they are welcome to share the bed. Please email us if you wish to make a reservation or have any other enquiries.

"I had two rooms on two visits, Aug 2017, April 2018, both rooms were great."
"The cheaper room is really small but we found that there is so much to do in Stone town that it's not necessary to have much space"
"Ask for a room with a balcony"
"Rooms with balcony is probably bigger than the ones without."
