Matemwe villa description

Ideally located almost on the beach, very peaceful and secure with large terrace and beautiful view. The three-bedroom house has two double beds and a twin, all with mosquito nets. Guests will find en-suite bathrooms (shower + WC in one), and sheets and towels are provided.
In the kitchen you’ll find all you need to experiment with Swahili cuisine. But, if you want, half – board catering can be arranged.
You may see the occasional tourist or local pass by, but the beach is never busy.
You can enjoy the ocean view as you wine and dine on the large terrace.
If you (somehow) tired of the ocean view and breeze, you can relax on comfy furniture indoors.
In order to make our guests feel safe and protected, Villa Tulia has 24/7 Masai security keeping discreet watch over the property.

              • Villa Tulia is located right next to the beach, with coconuts palms around, you are just 10 steps from the ocean. We have built Villa Tulia for ourselves.The house reflects our lifestyle and passion for Africa. It’s built in Zanzibari style from the exotic wood terrace to the Makuti thatched roof. Inside you’ll find canvas from Mali, carved pieces of furniture from Congo, and baskets from Kenya. We wanted a place to rest, a hideaway from the chaos of daily life, the office, and the crowds. We sought simplicity, nature and comfort. A place to relax and forget about stress. ...moreless

                  The north-east part of Zanzibar Island is known as Matemwe. This area is famous for its fine sand beaches, the contrasting colours of the Indian Ocean and the beauty of the coral reef around the Mnemba Island.

                  Here the tides govern the rhythm of the day. At high tide the fisherman stream across the lagoon in their billowing dhows, delivering a dream opportunity for any photographer - and the lodge is a daily stop for the fishermen who sell fresh crab, lobster and fish to Matemwe for lunches and dinners. At low tide the sea goes right out making the lagoon too shallow for swimming but it does reveal a fascinating reef which you can explore for hours.
