Cristina purchased this Villa in 2015
Why Cristina chose Matemwe
When we visited Zanzibar for the first time in August 2014, we fell in love with the island, an exotic and authentic place, amazing people and great culture. We acquired the villa in early 2015, renovated it and now we would like to share the experience with other people. We hope that you will enjoy your stay in Zanzibar as much as we do!
What makes this Villa unique
An endless white sand beach, a beautiful lagoon with warm and turquoise waters, fantastic and welcoming people who love to interact and learn more about you, lots of flavours and delicious fruits and spices, unique mix of cultures - African, Arab and European. “A crossroads of culture, a melting pot of influences where Africa, India and Arabia meet, a complete change of pace from the mainland, a place where life’s rhythms are set by the monsoon winds and the cycles of the moon.” Lonely Planet
Smoking allowed only outside

5 stars is no exaggeration. The hosts are attentive and just lovely. My husband, 5 children, grandparents and an auntie ended our 14 day trip of a lifetime (Safari in Serengeti and Ngorongoro) here. I can only tell you how we regretted we had not more days to spend here. Both grandparents well traveled and In Their 80s were so delighted with everything.... kids loved it too..The house was beautifully comfortable, modern yet cultured. food, service and beach all outstanding..All your meals delicious ...served In home—true room service. A Stocked fridge with bottled water, sodas...the reef walk.. white sandy beach and turquoise waters...we can only hope to return .18 hours from the US... we ended with a seafood barbecue on our last night. It is a wonderful retreat...you won’t be disappointed unless you are looking for nightlife and parties,.. to us the space is a reminder that the Lord our creator is wonderful and heaven is unthinkable....Thank you..
Perfect Beach Vacation Spot
I am so happy we choose Zanziblu for our beach retreat. It's absolutely gorgeous. It was so nice to have a HUGE house to spread out in with our 5 teenagers. The house is gorgeous and very well appointed. Chris and Christina were perfect hosts taking care of everything we may have needed. Fridge was stocked with beer, wine and soda and replenished whenever we wanted. Very resonable prices. There are a few other villas on the compound that share one beautiful beachfront pool and then our villa had a small plunge pool on the deck. It's really nice to have staff on site to take care of housekeeping and everything else. It's a very safe and secure environment and we were perfectly fine to leave our belongings with no worries. A delicious breakfast was incuded each day served on our oceanfront deck which was so nice. Also meals were available with a couple hours notice and were very good (about 12$ pp) They were wonderful about coming up with menu items everyone would enjoy. The beach is gorgeous and the tide didn't bother us at all. Loved having paddle boards and kayaks at our disposal (no charge) This whole experience turned out to be a real winner!
The villa was great, spacious and more than ample room for 3 families.
We had an amazing time at Zanziblu, Chris & Christina, our hosts, were more than helpful and the staff were fantastic, especially Samson. We would not hesitate in recommending this venue for a really relaxing and informal holiday.
Great house, Great staff!
We just completed a 1-week stay at Zanziblue and had a wonderful time! The house was perfect for our family-group of 8 people. The beach-access was wonderful, the beds were comfortable, and we loved having air-conditioning in the bedrooms! My son loved sleeping upstairs in the open-air "loft".
A couple of other notes... The owner, Cristina, was great to work with and very responsive. The house has easy policies -- just be respectful and treat it like your house. Like, there's a stocked drink-cooler and we enjoyed the policy of simply paying for the drinks, at cost, at the end of the week.
And finally, the staff was incredible. The house manager, Bahati, was always so helpful and pleasant. And the chef, Khusein, made the best food! Breakfast comes with the rental (which you can make yourself, or have the chef prepare it). We also had the chef make dinner on most nights (for a reasonable additional cost), and it was incredible! We highly recommend it!
My only nitpick was that the wifi was a bit flaky. But I tried the wifi at several places in Zanzibar and it was flaky everywhere -- nobody had good wifi, so I can't fault the house for that.
So, the house was great, and made our vacation in Zanzibar a wonderful, memorable time!
Zanziblue was a wonderful, relaxing place for us all to stay while holidaying in Zanzibar. It comfortably accommodated both our families and was located in a perfect spot on the NE coast. The experience was made so much better with the Villa staff - Mama Bahati, Khusein and Kidawa who were all fantastic and very helpful. We highly recommend the villa as a lovely place to stay.
Fantastiska ägare & personal!
Vi bodde i ett av de nya husen, jätte fint! Dock lite "barnsjukdomar" så här i början, men det gjorde inget. Ägarparet vill mycket väl och är fantastiska. Till huset ingår en personal som fixar åt en. Vår Bahathi var underbar, kommer aldrig glömma henne!
"You are Welcome" fick vi alltid till svar.
Stället i sig ligger mycket lugnt, så det krävs att man åker på utflykter om man vill uppleva mer och se lite folk. Om jag skulle åka tillbaka till Zanzibar så skulle jag dela upp min vistelse i två olika boenden för att få både lugn och lite mer aktivitet. Vi bodde två nätter i Stone Town innan vi tog oss hit. Vi hade två ungdomar med oss i vår familj, så de hade nog gärna också bott ngn natt vid en strand med mer rörelse. Rekommenderar detta ställe varmt!
