The yellow apartments are comfortable in a street off the main road between Serrakunda and Senegambia. It is a half hour walk to the beach a Kololi. The apartments are clean and quite well equipped for self catering and in a nice compound with shady mango trees.

We stayed one week at the yellow suite and all was perfect! Lamin, the owner, is a very kind man and he tried to make our stay the best! Sanchaba is the most authentic place at The Gambia and the people in there was beautiful and nice with us! We recommend it absolutely!

We stayed for four weeks in January 2014. Our experience was mainly positive. It started upon arrival when we saw the bougainvilla paint the outside wall in purple flowers.
