Private Villa Tulia on the beach

Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Matemwe, Zanzibar Island, Zanzibar Archipelago
Villa Tulia is located right next to the beach, with coconuts palms around, you are just 10 steps from the ocean.
We have built it for ourselves. It reflects our lifestyle and passion for Africa. We have travelled around the continent and inside the house, which is built in Zanzibar style, you will find canvas from Mali, carved pieces of furniture from Congo and baskets from Kenya.
We are all very busy people and we needed a place to rest, a hideaway from our daily busy schedules. Far from the crowds and Western civilisation. We were seeking simplicity, nature and comfort. A place to relax and forget about stress.
We were looking for a place where we could take long walks on the beach or wading in the ocean, enjoy the flavour of local fruit and vegetables and wake up to the sound of singing women who pick up the sea weeds in the morning....

The pictures on the web site are nice – but the reality is (much) better. What a great location, perfect for us as a family. We do not like busy tourist locations, but it should not be completely isolated either. Matemwe is a non-touristic village/location...More

The location is amazing, Matemwe is a non-touristic village on the east coast of Zanzibar and Vila Tulia is tucked away between the green ribbon of bush and palm trees that hug the powdery white sand beach. You’ll need to rent a car to get...More

Its economy is mostly based on seaweed farming and fishing.
It has beautifull white beaches.

How to get there
Airport: Stone Town: 50.0 km
Ferry: Stone Town: 50.0 km
Villa Tulia is situated on the outskirts of Matemwe village, about 45 minutes drive from the airport in Zanzibar town.
There are 3 ways of getting here from town:
- Taxi transfer ($50-60$ each way)
- Self-drive – we can help you rent a small 4×4 (automatic); it can be challenging for inexperienced drivers or those who never tried to drive on the “wrong” ;-) side of the road (30$ a day)
–Daladala (local bus) number 118, leaving from the central bus station. Can be challenging if you have a lot of luggage. (2$).
When in Matemwe, as you leave the tarmac, head left. On the first crossroads, keep right and carry on straight. Go past the signs to Matemwe Beach Village and follow the stone wall. Turn right at the end of it. Our gate is only 200 meters down the road.
