Super flexible and adaptable hosts, we were 4 personal trainers working at a nearby resort for 3 weeks. Days were long and we could always rely on Michelle and Matt to organise any last minute requirements, pick up supplies for us and they had excellent suggestions as to the best way to organise our stay. Nice beds, good fans, beautiful views. We will be back in November for another retreat and will be staying here for another 3 weeks.Thanks. J.

Great hospitality, relaxed vibes. Amazing house with lovely personal. The beach villa is across a really nice rastafari resort with a great kitchen but nothing can beat the seaplather of the chef from Crazy Mazunga. We were Totally relaxed and the seaview from the house is perfect. Thanks for having us. we will defenitly come back. Thanks, see you guys soon!! Britt&Manuel

“A great place on the beach to relax and unwind”
Reviewed 13 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Chef was great, food was great, villa comfortable. Full service. Personnel wonderful. House service great. Manager worked very hard to give good service.

If you want wifi, the service is spotty, slow and sometimes not at all. Just enjoy the beach and the view.

Thank you for the lovely review!
We are pleased that you enjoyed the services of our new host, Anna and her fabulous team of 6 years, Chef Abedi and housekeeper Mama Sherry.
I hope you enjoyed the Swahili cooking lessons and Chef's Spice demonstrations! We believe that Chef is the first in the link to your cultural journey in Zanzibar!
Although dedicated WiFi, signals are subject to Service providers, usually the upstairs part of the Villa provides a good signal. In future, we will provide guests with a local sim card and they can enjoy 3G.
Having that said, we do agree, focus on that spectacular ocean view...the kids playing football on the beach, the odd cow walking past and the beautiful dhows sailing by or stop to chat to a fishermen at dawn, buy fresh fish off the beach!
We hope that you will visit us again in the near future as we enjoyed taking care of you and your family in Saffron Beach Villa!

“A real “home from home” in Zanzibar, on a such great beach!”

We had really super time at Saffron – the villa is set on an amazing stretch of beach...it's nowhere near any of the big resorts- thank goodness, peace and quiet at last, no beach boys trying to sell us stuff! The villa is nice and spacious, great for a big family like ours. I spent most of the day lounging on the upstairs terrace, watching the fishing boats go by. The kids were kite surfing from the beach in front of the villa, the rest went walking down the beach in search of pizza and cold beer, there are plenty of little places along the beach to stop and relax in the shade. The friendly manager and staff were most attentive and we had the best seafood dinners ever! Freshly prepared everyday and so tasty. The kids loved Chef's pancakes and donuts, oh and also his home made fish fingers, giving us moms a really enjoyable break, not having to worry about who is eating what today.
The rooms are lovely and cool, beds are huge and comfy, and big showers. The villa was spotless, fresh flowers placed everyday. We really appreciated the friendly cleaning service and the lady even came back in the evening to spray our rooms and put the nets down!
One day we did venture out in to the village and had tea with one of the local ladies – in her home – what an amazing experience, we met her family, had tea and cake and were pleasantly surprised by this, highly recommended.
We can't wait to come and stay again, looking forward to the new swimming pool!!
