Nne is another of the most popular tree houses, and for good reasons. It was the first of three houses with the upstairs ‘tea house’ design: the ‘tea house’, a 19th-century Stone Town innovation, is essentially an elevated room that is open to the breezes, allowing for 360-degree views; the sunsets are spectacular from here. Quite similar to seven, but Nne has a baobab and views to the open ocean.

Nne has also perhaps the most appealing of all the showers and toilets (designed by Anne and built by Fundi Rashid while I was away).
