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 wanted a place which would feel like anything but the office space. We would rather have the breeze than air conditioning. We would not need the TV - we would rather read the books than watch the news.
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.
We wanted the space to feel free. Instead of having electric fence, we would keep an open view on the ocean and have 3 Masai men to protect the property 24/7.
Villa Tulia is our solution for family reunions or spending time with friends. We love cooking and eating together. We wanted our kitchen to have the ocean view and enough space on the terrace to accommodate big table where we could gather around and enjoy Swahili cuisine. Above all, we always wanted to share our passion with other people.

The island is without doubt the number one beach location in East Africa, an absolutely wonderful island of tropical white-sand beaches, lush plantations, an incredible history and a fascinating culture.
Above all what we really appreciate about Zanzibar is that despite ever increasing numbers of visitors, it remains resolutely African ... a passionate, intense, and relatively challenging place to visit.
Matemwe is a village on the north-eastern coast of Unguja, the main island of the Zanzibar Archipelago, between Mwangaseni and Kigomani.
Its economy is mostly based on seaweed farming and fishing.
It has beautifull white beaches.
