Matemwe, Zanzibar Island, Zanzibar Archipelago
Our Ocean Front Villa has 5 double bed/bath suites, all large and completely furnished. All bathrooms have open hot/cold showers. The house is constructed and furnished in an authentic Swahili style and has many Swahili artifacts scattered throughout. All the house opens out towards the beach and there are outdoor dining and sitting areas for your use. The 5m x 6m swimming pool is the perfect size for cooling down when the tide is low.

The house is located on the North East Coast directly facing Mnemba island, where world class diving and snorkeling are available through our favorite Dive Team at Scuba Fish. (www.scubafishzanzibar.com)

The house is beautiful, the photos posted by the owner don't do it justice. Decor is lovely and there are multiple comfortable balconies and seating areas so you don't feel like you're all on top of eachother. The three upstairs bedrooms are spacious (although one is considerably larger than the other two) and all have king size beds, private baths and stunning ocean views.
