Zi-Villa is a private house situated at Matemwe, along the north-east coast of Zanzibar.

The house that can be rented by families or a group of friends offers wide spaces, airy bedrooms and comfortable common areas although with a very rustic touch. It is located up on the top of a cliff overlooking the sea and Mnemba island in a relatively isolated setting between Kasha Boutique Hotel and Matemwe Retreat. It offers the advantage of a great privacy while having in house two chefs and an housekeeper. Every morning the chef is proposing a daily menu but you are welcome to request alternatives.

The ideal number of occupants is 4 couples but it can hosts up to 12 people [14 considering the bunk bed set on the first floor between the stairs and the bedroom]. On the ground floor there are three large bedrooms each with en-suite, the living room, a common bathroom, the bar and a pool table, the kitchen. On the upper floor there is the largest of all room opening into the outdoor terrace overlooking the sea and featuring a Jacuzi along with separate shower and toilet.

The house is complemented by the swimming pool and the patio leading down to the beach. At high tide the beach is only a few meter wide while at low tide the shore widen up and it is possible to walk along the cliff up to Kasha Boutique hotel. Given the presence of coral outcrops and sea-urchins it is safer to wear sea-shoes when swimming.

Diving and snorkeling can be arranged through Scuba Fishing the diving centre of Matemwe Lodge.
