“Second time just as lucky”
Reviewed 27 April 2015 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed at this villa last year and had such a lovey time we revisited this year and booked for next year. We travelled with our 8 ad 10 year old children. Zanzibar is difficult to get to but do ask the owner advise before you book anything as he knows all the routes to take etc. Once you are there a driver meets you and life becomes very easy! The villa is lovely not because it is perfectly appointed but because it is a real home from home with real furniture and ornaments and pictures rather than bland white and empty, There are lots of staff to help with everything but they live in a separate house in the grounds so you don't feel put upon. I could list lots of little bits anb bobs that aren't perfect but that is because it is run so comfortably and homely. There are endless sun loungers, the beach is lovely, the views are fantastic, the owner is super helpful. It is an exotic and exciting trip to go on.

Villa Loiki and Matemwe beach is like paradise. Very nice house with good facilities and plenty of space. Big garden with nice pool area and sunchairs situated on the beach. White and very long beach that is at all not crowded, few tourists and many locals out fishing and picking seagrass. Terrific staff helping you out and cooking very good food. Very few restaurants and other bungalows, what makes the holiday a nice and restful one. Crystal clear water, degrees some 32-34! Perfect staying.

“Best Vacaton Ever”

This is a perfect spot for a vacation! The owner was very helpful and the staff were incrediable! The weather, the property, the beach the food, SUPERB! Be sure to coordinate your menus prior to arriving and have the staff shop for as much as possible beforehand. Make a point of having the chef make fresh fish and go down the beach about 200 meters to a really excellent bar/grill. Biggest lobster I've ever had for about 7 USD! If going to Zanzibar, this is the place to stay!

The house is great, right on the beach and with a small pool to cool down in. Staff is helpful and work hard to make the stay enjoyable. Would recommend this to anyone going to Zanzibar as a great alternative to staying in a hotel.

Generous facilities offered by the owner. Nicely furnished large spacious accomodation. Location just by the beach, dining possibilities either on the patio or by the beachs requested. Comfortable sitting facilities on the property either in the sun or shade .
Nice to be able to choose our own menu too!
