Garden Beach Villa is perfectly located directly on the beach in an old coconut plantation in Matemwe, on the North East coast of Zanzibar. This large property features 115 meters of beachfront in a very peaceful part of the island, where you’ll often find yourself enjoying the whole beach to yourself!

Built in 2012, Garden Beach Villa actually comprises of 2 luxurious beach villas that can each accommodate 8 guests (taking the total capacity up to 16 guests in 8 bedrooms. These villas can be rented together – or separately – depending on the size of your group.

Accommodation

Both villas share the same basic layout and sleep up to 8 guests in each.  Each villa has 4 bedrooms, 3 en-suite and one bathroom in the hallway. All bedrooms have A/C, ceiling fans and spacious mosquito nets.

Garden Beach Villa is perfect for large groups of families or friends. If needed, the villa staff will happily prepare a couple of extra beds in the spacious living areas, taking the total capacity up to 20 guests, if both villas are rented together.

The villas both feature several common areas, including a large lounge with comfortable sofas and armchairs, and a small library.

The shady terrace in each villa has a beautiful dining table and chairs made out of local coconut wood, which is the heart of the villa where delicious meals are served.

Both villas feature a large swimming pool, which is surrounded by a deck of local stone and wood, where you’ll find various loungers to enjoy the sun and a good book. The pool measures 6 x 12 meters – so there’s plenty of space for games or exercise… and then just a couple of steps from the pool you’ll find yourself straight on the beach!
