Every room is complete with en-suite facilities, mosquito nets, and a comfortable four-poster bed, and leads on to a secluded balcony. Dine at Onsea House terrace restaurant where Michelin chef, Axle, creates mouthwatering dishes. Relax in the beautifully cared for garden where the pool and Jacuzzi provide the perfect environment to unwind.

Onsea House Reviews

Onsea House Overall rating: ★★★★★ 5 based on 2 reviews

We stayed at Onsea House twice, and both times were comfortable and cared for. The chef is from Belgium, and he uses fresh Tanzanian produce and foods to create culinary delights that are unique and delicious. The rooms are comfortable, the grounds are impeccable and the pool inviting. A great place to stay while in or near Arusha.

Onsea House was one of the finds of the trip! It is a really nice owner-run guest house on the Arusha JRO road. The Belgian owners (cousins) are quick, wacky professional people. Axel is a serious chef and cooks all the clients’ meals. They will only accept guests if they can look after them. Beautiful rooms, a really nice garden and a large lovely pool. This is a real hidden gem...until every other UK operator cottons on!
