A day room at Onsea House

After flying from the Serengeti to Arusha, we spent a very welcome short afternoon at Onsea House before our evening flight out of Kilimanjaro. The staff were all friendly, and we had an enjoyable lunch on the terrace with a view of Mt Meru.

Onsea House review

Calvin gave us a wonderful walk around the hill on which Onsea is located, including agricultural aspects and local people. Food ranged from good to excellent, with service always excellent. Had a very later dinner awaiting us when we arrived. Had a very nice chat with one of the owners, Axel. Definitely a great place to recoup from air travel in preparation for a safari. The one and only issue about cost on this trip occurred at Onsea House. One of our vouchers read full board and the the other read half board. We had to pay $65 (US) for a lunch for all three of us. So, was this supposed to be included or not?

Expert Africa comments

The confusion on the paperwork, was due to a mistake made by Expert Africa as Onsea House was booked on half board with lunch payable locally. We have apologised to these travellers and will refund the US$65 as a gesture of goodwill.

Onsea House review

Our journey home had a large gap due to airline schedules and so Asilia booked a dayroom for us at Onsea House. A smallish lodge tucked away on the quiet outskirts of Arusha; we didn't expect much but Onsea was great.

A comfortable room, a shower to wash the safari dust off, lunch thrown in and an hour or so quiet kip before the final bit of our journey home. So much better than a hotel

Onsea House Feedback

If I hadn't have known where I was, gazing out from the terrace I'd have plumped for somewhere in the very verdant Caribbean.

Although I was asleep for part of the time here due to succumbing to two lunch-time beers, the house, gardens and outlook were all stunning and it is a wonderful little oasis off the beaten track.
