Overview

Matemwe Beach house is a stunning private villa that is rented as a sister property to Matemwe lodge. Located in the Matemwe area on the Northeast coast of Zanzibar, the beach house is positioned on 17km of unspoilt coastline and offers a fantastic private retreat for families or friends.

This traditional three bedroom house is within its own walled garden and has breath taking views across the Indian Ocean. Guests are greeted by a large outdoor terrace housing a hammock and sofa perfect for whiling away sunny afternoons. A private plunge pool completes the outside space that includes steps down to a beautifully quiet, often deserted beach. Inside is furnished using traditional, locally sourced products and furniture and includes a homely lounge and two ensuite rooms on the ground floor. A third room with two single beds is situated on a mezzanine floor and is ideal for older children.

There are plenty of things to do during your stay at the beach house to take advantage of the beautiful surroundings. The lagoon is a great place for reef walking, kite surfing, snorkelling, kayaking and sailing. One of the best diving spots in the area, diving courses and days can also be organised through Scubafish. Day trips and tours to local villages and places further afield are also available at an extra charge. The property also has access to all the facilities at the main lodge including the spa and water sports centre.

You will be looked after by a team of staff during your stay, including a private chef and butler to tend to your every need.

Children of all ages are welcome at Matemwe beach house and it is a great place to enjoy a holiday as a family. The accommodation is ideally set up for families and there is plenty to keep kids occupied whilst parents enjoy some relaxation time.

In a picturesque location and giving you all the freedom you need to have your perfect holiday, Matemwe Beach House is one of the best private villas on the island. Providing the same high quality you would expect from the main lodge but with the added bonus of seclusion and privacy, this beach house has something for everyone. First class service, activities and facilities make this an experience worth the higher price tag.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
