If you are looking for a cozy and affordable accommodation in Arusha, then we warmly welcome you to stay at our homestay!

We have two double, one triple and one quadruple room; each contains comfortable beds and shelves to store your belongings. One of the double rooms has its own bathroom, the other three rooms are sharing the facilities. Our house is equipped with hot water and the possibility to use the kitchen.

Our home is located just 25 minutes by foot from the city center. Motorbikes and Dala Dala (Minibuses) are available everywhere. We can also pick you up.

Our homestay is surrounded by a lush green garden full of banana trees, papayas, pomegranates, guavas, avocados and peaches. Bella, Luna and Takwa, our three dogs are part of the family too.

In the morning we will serve breakfast that will contain tea and coffee, bread, margarine, honey, jam, peanut butter, as well as fruits and vegetables. Menu for dinner is international, since we cook Tanzanian as well as Western food. Don‘t worry if you are vegetarian (like Tizia), vegan or have any allergies, we can cope with everything.

Washing machines are not common in Tanzania that's why we provide a place to do your laundry by hand or our housekeeper can do it for a small fee.

Price includes:

  • Accommodation
  • Breakfast and dinner

Meet Martin and Tizia

Member since: October 2016

Hi we are Martin and Tizia. I (Martin) am born and raised in Arusha. I am a tour guide by profession. Besides our homestay we also run an organization for volunteering and internships. My wife Tizia is German, and a cultual anthropologist by profession. We are making an effort to show our guests that ”Africa” or better to say “Tanzania” is more than the stereotypes one sees on television in the western world. We offer volunteer work in kindergarten, nurseries, primary schools, women and youth empowerment, health and special needs as well as animal welfare.
