Please keep the gate locked at all times. We try to look after the environment as best we can. We therefor ask you to use water and electricity sparingly. The house has powerful ceiling fans which will usually keep you cool throughout the day and night. However if you choose to use the air conditioner in the double bedroom please make sure that both windows and the door is closed.

Please also note that we separate all our rubbish into 2 separate bins.

1. All food stuff, vegetable and fruit waste as well as left over food etc goes into the compost. This also includes meat.

2. Dry burnables, including cans and plastic, paper etc go into the regular rubbish bin.

Espen's place is excellently located, well equipped, and so comfortable. It was the perfect spot for the week that I was in Dar es Salaam. Highly recommended!

Espen and Louise were great hosts! They were not around, but were readily available over message or texts to answer any questions. The house is in a very convenient location close to shops and a big supermarket in Mikocheni, and only a short bajaj or uber/taxi away from the peninsula. The house is spacious and clean. There's no hot water, but I did not have any issues with it. I lived in Dar es Salaam for a year, and I would recommend this airbnb to others, particularly because of its prime location and size. Thank you, Espen and Louise!

This place was very clean and located nicely between the two major areas that we like to visit. It was comfortable and they provided beds and nets for my 2 children with no fuss. Thank you!

Born to a danish father and english mother my parents started working with international development when I was 6 years old which took us to Africa, where I have since lived for the most part of my life.

I love the beach, good food and the tranquility of nature. My work as a singer and songwriter has given me the opportunity to travel, meet new people and learn about new cultures. I am devoted to working and developing the music scene in Tanzania and help to make it a viable means of income.
