Vanilla House

Vanilla House is a private Dorota’s Katende house, described in her first book, polish bestseller titled „House on Zanzibar”. This is a place for people, who want to know real life on Zanzibar, not only the tourist side of the island.

This is a private house, guests are welcome but they are asked to respect the rules (among others: respect all the objects and souvenirs that are in the house, take care of the order in the house, not introduce unannounced visitors from outside, do not drink spirits). In Vanilla House lives dog, so please choose another place to stay, if you don’t like animals. At home you can meet the owner of Vanila House – Dorota Katende, but you need to book in advance.

This traditional Zanzibar-style house is located in the Jambiani village, right on a private, palm-lined beach. It offers four rooms, two bathrooms (with shower and WC), two terraces overlooking the Indian Ocean, a communal living/dining area, kitchen and small garden with exit to the beach. In each room in Vanilla House you can admire the traditional zanzibarski decor – large carved sultan bed and cabinets, tables and chairs with plaited palm leaves or goat skins.

Staff can help arrange activities in Zanzibar: sightseeing, diving, boat cruises, swimming with dolphins, cooking workshops in the style of Swahili and many others. Full range of attractions is available at https://bookingafrica.eu/trips-on-zanzibar/
