Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: A lifetime in tourism led me to Zanzibar and the opportunity to purchase this extraordinary property. A life changing experience and a labor of love. The islands people are a friendly honest bunch which you will experience between the housekeepers, chefs, gardeners and the local manager. From Stonetown with its amazing history, shopping, restaurants and bars to the spice plantations, Swimming with dolphins in the south or diving and fishing in the north the island will captivate you as it did me

Why the Owner Chose Matemwe:
A unique property in an awesome setting on an unspoilt tropical island made this an opportunity of a lifetime which we are now sharing by making the home available for rent

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Peace Serenity, Privacy are some of the major attractions at Zi Villa but with a mini bus and resident driver on the property the whole island is available to you whenever you wish to leave the sanctuary of the villa. For Diving and Snorkeling Safaris the manager will arrange for the operators to collect you from the beach in front of the house. The fact that the house is fully equipped and fully staffed with housekeepers, chefs, a manager and a driver means everyone can enjoy the holiday as everything is taken care of.
