The SpaceFor many years our 2 families escaped from the bustle of Stone Town to this most beautiful, unspoilt, powdery white sand beach on the northeast coast of Zanzibar. Gradually, with much support and encouragement from family and friends, we built our family-run beach haven and now welcome guests to share the peaceful beauty and tranquility of this stunning location. We have 15 simple and stylishly comfortable rooms - in 4 guest lodges. Each room faces out on to its own wide veranda, has a sea or a tropical garden view, and is furnished with traditional hand-crafted coconut wood furniture. The Bungalow: 4 rooms all facing the sea have been specially designed with cool natural ventilation. Mchanga Mdogo: 5 rooms on 2 floors, including a family room. Banda: all 3 rooms are over-looking the beach. One has a large covered veranda right on the sea-front Baharini: 2 rooms on the beach-front, 1 facing the tropical garden, with beach just to the side. You can book one room or several with your friends or family. Please note that the Beach side rooms are more expensive because of their position. Because we are so far from town, all catering is done through our small restaurant/bar on site. We love Zanzibar food, and so delicious local flavours and fresh produce are always on our menu. We love vegetarian food too, and our chefs have been trained by our friend, a Goan-Zanzibari creative chef! He used to be Head Chef at the only Vegetarian Indian restaurant in Stone Town. You can travel here by dala dala (local bus - very cheap) or by taxi. If you do come by dala dala, we can pick you up in the village - just let us know. We are trying very hard to be as sustainable as possible - which includes employing or training local people from the village. we have solar water heaters, rainwater harvesting, and re-cycle as much waste as possible (plastics, glass, metal, and composting). We also only grow plants that are happy in our sea breeze and dry coastal environment! Guest AccessWi-fi in public areas, our lovely restaurant/bar, the beach(!), laundry service, bike hire, arranging excursions if requested. Interaction with GuestsWe are very interested in our guests, and welcome conversation and discussion. However, we also appreciate that some people just want to be on holiday, relax and have a bit of quiet and privacy. We do try to be sensitive to this. The NeighborhoodEverything! The changing colours and moods of the sea, the proximity to the village, the weather, the warmth.... Getting AroundDala Dalas run from the village to town. Worth experiencing if you have some time - very good value indeed, but very crowded! Otherwise we can advise on vehicle hire or the local taxis. Other Things to NoteBring aqua shoes for fascinating walks out to the reef at low tide - there are quite a few sea urchins.

Km restaurants, shops 1 Km Matemwe 55 Km Stone Town Getting AroundThe history of Zanzibar has been influenced by many nations, including the Arabia, Persia, India, Portugal, Britian and local tribes from the African mainland. This is clearly noticed in the architecture. Stone Town is a place of narrow lanes, intricately carved wooden doors, towers, terraces and fabulous mosques. In 1964 Zanzibar united with Tanganyika to form the present day Tanzania, although it still enjoys a high degree of autonomy within the unified state. Zanzibar is an archepelago of islands in the Indian Ocean that lie 30km off the coast of Tanzania. The two largest islands are Unguja (usually referred to as 'Zanzibar') and Pemba. Zanzibar Town (including it's old quarter of Stone Town) is the capital of Zanzibar, and has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Tourism and spices are Zanzibar's main industries are spices and tourism. It is often still referred to as the Spice Islands due to the production of cloves, nutmeg, pepper and cinnamon. Important cultural considerations Zanzibar has a long history of religious tolerance and although the islands are 99% Muslim, alcohol and tobacco are freely available. Visitors are, however, requested to show consideration for the culture of Zanzibar by dressing modestly and refraining from public displays of affection. When walking in towns and villages, women should wear clothes that cover their shoulders and knees. Men should not walk bare-chested or wearing swimming trunks. Many visitors refuse to cover up and this causes offense and often outrage amongst the local population, even though these feelings may not be directly expressed. As one sign says, “Short skirts are like nude” On the beaches swimwear is acceptable, but topless sunbathing is not. During the fast of Ramadan, it is considered the height of bad manners to eat and drink in public places or while walking down the street. Non- Muslims should not enter mosques unless specifically invited to do so. Only take pictures of people if you have their permission, and don’t peer too obviously through the doorways of private houses in Stone Town.

The SpaceLying opposite Mnemba atoll on the dazzling Matemwe beach, 'Utupoa' is Swahili and means people are 'fresh' or 'humanity is cool.' Karibu to our unique house with its huge roof, hidden somewhere between the East African tall palms and utopia. Matemwe represents one of the quieter parts of the island with the most beautiful white stretch of working beach. The fishermen head out daily on their ngalawas and bring the fish into auction and ladies farm seaweed in the low tide. We have 3 ensuite bedrooms available in Nyumba Safi. 'Ngalawa', a tribute to Swahili sailing culture; 'Sultani', echoes of Stone Town; and 'Kijijji' after our own local village. We can accommodate singles, couples, or groups of 6-8. If you are traveling with more people, let us know and we'd be happy to try sort something out. The house comes with its own very well equipped kitchen and a third floor lounge area with TV featuring the famous DSTV channels and a computer with WiFi. In our main house Nyumba Kubwa we have two rooms available, recently remodelled and each with its own veranda leading onto the beach. We charge a bit more for these rather special rooms and we invite our guests to make themselves at home and enjoy the use of the whole house. For meals we are very flexible, inviting you to eat with us or to cook for yourselves or just advising you on the best nearby restaurants. We can certainly organise traditional dinners of fresh seafood brought straight to our front door and cooked by our fabulous Swahili cook Ma Fatuma. We are set up as a place to stretch out, shut down, sail our ngalawa, watch the sea (or DSTV), and leave recharged - as strongly as our solar back-up system! Please always send us a message to inquire about availabilty as we have more than 1 room. Karibu kwetu! Other Things to Note"This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain all! Even if they're a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. Be grateful for whomever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond." ~Rumi

The SpaceVilla Tulia typically is used as self-catering. The kitchen has all you need except for for a stove and microwave oven. You will need to buy some groceries (and wine/beer if needed) in Town.Local dukas offer only essentials (water, sodas, eggs, basic vegetable and fruit). Fish can be bought at a local fish market (expensive due to competition with hotels) or in Mkokotoni (20 minutes drive). Local meat is not really recommended unless you are very adventurous. In Matemwe, you will find a number of restaurants 5-15 minutes walk from Villa Tulia. Prices per meal vary from USD 10 to 100 with some options in between. My personal favourite is Muhammed Bungalows - a great fish and chips place, very reasonably (URL HIDDEN) the house you will find sheets and towels. No need to take yours. The house will be cleaned before you come and after you leave. Should you require daily cleaning, it can be arranged at an extra charge (US$ 10/day).

In terms of activities, there are things to do locally. Snorkeling anddiving either with One Ocean (next door, if you fancy longer trips by boat and a bit of a premium price) or DivePoint Zanzibar at Sunshine Marine Lodge - a new dive shop right across from the Mnemba Island where all boats go anyway. They will pick you up and drive you back. Being mobile with a small 4x4, you may go visit Stone Town, Jozani Forest (red colobus monkeys), Mangrove Forest in the South or all remains of Omani Empire - details to be found in any guide.

Plaże są niemal puste, z białym koralowym piaskiem i palmami kokosowymi. Gdy przypływ jest wysoki, można kąpać się niemal pod domem. Z plaży widać wyspę Mnemba otoczoną koralową laguną. Uwielbiamy tam snurklować i nurkować, tym bardziej, że często można tam spotkać delfiny! Getting AroundNa Zanzibarze warto mieć wynajęte auto. Ruch jest wprawdzie lewostronny ale poza miastem dość nieliczny. Uwaga, trzeba sobie wyrobić na miejscu zanzibarskie prawo jazdy.
