About the Homestay

Beachy Cosy

Our home is in the city suburbs close to the unending beaches of the Indian ocean in Dar es salaam. I live with my 10 year old son and a housekeeper. We have two self contained rooms on the first floor that can be occupied by the guests. The kitchen, dining and living rooms are on the ground floor. The guests can also access the balcony on the second floor for relaxation or barbecue. we generally speak English and sometimes Swahili. We also have a professional chef who comes to the house when required. it is a quiet neighbourhood and close to public transport although our family car is up for hire. The rooms are spacious and we offer breakfast.

    Nancy and her family were such marvellous hosts that my time in Dar es Salaam passed in what seemed like a haze. Nancy was very accommodating of my requests including adapting the breakfast menu to my unique requirements. She not only provided really useful tips on getting around Dar, but also freely shared invitations to social events and her family's membership to a swimming pool. I also had really engaging discussions on life in Dar with the other members of the family. It was indeed a homely experience; one that I would gladly recommend to others.

    The house is very neat and clean. My room was spacious, well lit and ventilated. The completion of the plumbing works in the bath will crown the already great experience.

    Nancy's home is very clean and they are most welcoming.
    Breakfast every morning was lovely.

    Unfortunately there was no hot water for showering although Nancy did provide a kettle. The washing machine was provided but is not connected to a mains water source which proved challenging and time consuming and had to be manually filled. To wash with hot water the kettle was needed again.

    The Internet was advertised but we had to pay for the final two weeks.

    Nancy asked us for further payment for gas and laundry at the end of the trip even though this had been included in the advertisement. We had hardly used either service and so we felt this was an unfair request and when we refused to pay there was no trouble on this score .

    I would highly recommend this house to anyone who is going to be busy in Dar and is looking for a bed in a safe neighbourhood. Lovely family, staff and wonderfully clean house.
