Skippers is a lovely eco and natural place to stay with lovely bandas and delicious food. It is very private and secluded and so relaxing. The food is excellent with casual dining. The views are amazing and the best thing for us was the perfect waves which you can surf all day. They even have a mini-mal if you need...

Angus is an amazing host. This place has been one of my favorite retreat spots till date. Amazing downtime spent with the Mrs. Great fishing available. An hour away from ferry and you appreciate every minute of this lost paradise when you get there. Asante. We will be back.

I had the privilege to visit the place with a couple of friends, and stayed for two nights. The rooms have beautiful views and are located in such a way, that you have privacy, but still close to the restayrant/bar area. We catered for ourselves, and the owners allowed us full access to the kitchen. The staff cleaned up after...

Interesting trip in Tuk Tuk, ferry boat included, to get to such beautiful place; things only get better when I caught my first dorados and Spanish mackerel. We had a piece for lunch and a piece to take away. Great fun and service by Angus and wife.

Skippers Haven is a gem! Quiet and peaceful, clean private beach and a perfect view of the ocean from cool, comfortable and well designed rooms! The only time it isn't peaceful is when you are on the boat, as the fishing reels are screaming from the strain of Tuna, Sierra and many other fish species!! All thanks to Gus and...

Myself and a colleague decided to spend a weekend at Skipper's Haven after some stressful work obligations in Dar Es Salaam. It was really excellent! Angus and Karen were the perfect charming hosts and we were treated to beautiful spacious chalets and delicious food! The beach and surroundings were stunning - one of the most scenic bars I have seen......

An absolutely wonderful time was had by all. Thank you to Karen, Angus and Ewan for making us feel so welcome and allowing us to share in what could quite easily be the eighth wonder of the world. This majestic spot is a must for everyone and anyone. Great fishing offshore and your private little lagoon was a real hit...

Once a year, my husband and I are fortunate enough to be able to take a nice long holiday. Very often we spend this time trying to catch up with family and friends around the world. We always seem to need a holiday to recover from our busy holiday !! This year however, we decided to go somewhere we had...
