Matemwe Beach House

Zanzibar, Tanzania

Gold price level

Mango Opinion

This is a great option for families that like to privacy and hangout together. Meals are prepared to your schedule and service is excellent. The third bedroom is in the attic so suitable for small children only.

On Matemwe Beach lies one of Zanzibar’s most homey family escapes. Matemwe Beach House is the perfect holiday home for a family or small group wanting a private slice of this beautiful coast line. Let the white sand beaches, turquoise seas and swaying palm trees lull you into a state of total relaxation.

This completely self-contained three bedroom traditional beach house is just five paces from the beach, within its own walled garden and plunge pool overlooking the beach and ocean beyond. Soak up the sunshine and enjoy the total seclusion this exclusive use property affords you.

There is full butler service, so guests can remain tucked away in their house in complete isolation, or if you choose, you may also wander over to the main lodge for meals, drinks or other activities such as diving and snorkeling. Features include a pool with complete privacy for sunbathing and a cooling dip (a safety net is available for those with small children), a hammock, a large couch and scatter cushions create a relaxing atmosphere on the wooden deck, where you can enjoy tasty fresh food, relax in the shade during the day, or enjoy sundowners overlooking the ocean. Your chef will visit the villa on a daily basis, to discuss meal plans for the day. All meals are freshly prepared in the kitchen which is adjacent to the house.
