Matemwe villa description

Choba Bay villa is a new exclusive property set in 6 acres of magnificent tropical garden. Our lovely Villa in the tanzanian coastline, near Pangani has its own deserted beach at Choba, overlooking the blue waters of the Indian Ocean.

Ideal for visitors who are looking for an exclusive, private retreat for a relaxing time on the un-spoilt Swahili coastline of Tanzania.
Experience a quiet paradise out of the mass turism ! Very rare and unspoiled...

SPECIAL 2015 JANUARY OFFER : 90 euros/bedroom (2 persons sharing) or 230 euros/night for the whole property and villa 3 rooms exclusive use. Just ask our special if you are 2 persons !

The house (250 sqm) has been built in 2012 using local materials : wood, coconut tree leaves, natural coral stone etc in the swahilli style : local thatching and spacious rooms ensure a good circulation of air.

3 huge bedrooms (ensuite bathroom) with sea view, a large shaded verandah, a kitchen and sofa place, a BBQ area outside.

This beautiful property where coconut trees undulate with many indigenous trees such as mangos, lemon, oranges, bananas trees, creates a tropical paradise for private parties, families or groups. At Choba Bay villa, you will hear many birds during the day and bush babies at night!

This is the perfect venue to enjoy holidays and even to organise any private event, birthday party, Christmas or New Eve, celebrations, business meetings, etc.

The uniqueness of Choba Bay Villa is its privacy, the beautifull environnement and the peacefull atmosphere, the friendly local staff and an exciting choice of activities to enjoy your holidays.

Choba bay villa is not a luxurious beach house in terms of modern facilities. It has no AC, no TV, no electricity (Choba village has no power. We are using a generator some hours a day) only Nature around !

The setting is beachfront, surrounded by coconut plantations, mangroves and ancient coral cliffs, a really idyllic hideaway from the crowded turist resorts. Staying at Choba is like having a true African experience, in harmony with the Nature and its surroundings.
