Onsea House Country Inn & Guest Cottage is perched on a hill providing unparalleled views across the Maasai steppe, the Monduli Mountains and the unrivalled spectacle of Mt. Meru, the 2nd highest mountain in Tanzania. An idyllic setting for spectacular sundowners and a truly rural feel only 7 minutes from Arusha town centre and a convenient 30 minutes from Kilimanjaro International Airport.

The adjacent self contained Guest Cottage, each room with private wooden balconies, can easily accomodate 6 people.

Onsea House is voted and strives to remain the best luxury bed and breakfast in Arusha with greater comfort and better food than any other guesthouse or restaurant, with more personalized service than in a hotel and more privacy than a lodge resort.
The outdoor Jacuzzi and floodlit swimming pool with lawn bar are a great place to prepare or wind down in style from a safari or mountain climbing adventure. Other features include tropical gardens, walking trails, lounge, terrace, pooltable and cocktail bar.
Onsea House is also a recognized centre of culinary excellence. The Belgian chef-manager Axel prepares a fusion of exquisite European and African delights based on seasonal specialties. The place is however not an open restaurant. You need to book a table in advance to taste the freshly made table d'hôte brasserie dishes.
The name Onsea is a derivate from the Panthera Onca - known as jaguar - and is the American brother of the African Panthera Pardus, known as leopard. The Belgian owners Dirk & Inneke Janssens-Onsea have founded Onsea House in July 2006 and plan to further finetune it as boutique hotel. The owners are happy to share their in-depth local knowledge. They can provide tips on what to discover nearby, local events and safari planning.
