The Kipepeo Lodge - villa rent
Villa | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12
The Kipepeo Lodge is a charming and warm resort, built on the South-East coast of Zanzibar, close to a typical African village, Jambiani. It rises on the beach in front of the Indian Ocean and was created with love and fantasy. It is now ready to receive dreamers and travellers who look for an exclusive solution to spend some time in paradise. It has six double rooms, with a view to the ocean.
The Kipepeo Lodge is the perfect place where to find total relaxation and real interior peace. But, above all, it represents a different life style far from the crowds, close to real people and nature.
In a word: intimate, even for one night only.

The Zanzibar region
Zanzibar's brilliant white beaches lapped by the warm turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean provide the perfect place to relax, soak up the sun and take a break from some busy sightseeing. The beaches in Zanzibar are a paradise, interspersed with picturesque fishing villages, where the people live a simple way of life, unchanged over the years. There are more than 25 fantastic beaches in Zanzibar, and some are so peaceful and remote that the only noise breaking the silence is likely to be the ocean.
At the northern tip of the island is Nungwi, approached by a road lined by banana palms, mangroves and coconut trees. This is the dhow building capital of Zanzibar island, so it is a good place to see traditional craftsmen at work. A short walk from Nungwi is the Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel, an eco-tourism oriented resort with an unspoilt beach, and peace and relaxation on tap! It also offers a variety of watersports and a fully equipped dive centre which specialises in trips to the spectacular Mnemba Atoll.
On the west coast of Zanzibar, Mangapwani beach is worth a visit, and to the east are the beaches of Matemwe, Pwani Mchangani, Kiwengwa, Uroa, Bwejuu and Jambiani, all with stretches of beautiful and uncrowded sands. The Shooting Star Inn is a small family-run hotel at Kiwengwa.
Zanzibar also boasts several small offshore islands which are ideal for a day-trip. Prison (or Changu) island is the most popular with tourists because it is only a short trip from Stone Town.
Originally, it was used by Arabs to detain recalcitrant slaves, and then a jail was built by the British, but it was never actually used. Visitors to Zanzibar will notice a large population of ancient Aldabra tortoises.
Other islets near to Stone Town are Chapwani, Chumbe and Bawe.

"Nearly but not quite"
This is a clean but poorly designed property that in my view could easily be so much nicer. For some reason the property is closed from the beach - whereas surrounding properties have balconies and f… More
Thank you for your review.
Actually, the villa is feet in the water and the nice, unique and huge tropical vegetation that surrounds the property is fitted to fully protect the privacy of our guests, while many other properties cannot ensure this objective. Being on the top balcony, or at the pool, or in garden means simply not to be visible from the outside, which is something that many of our guests appreciate normally. We'll keep anyway in count the advice of cutting a few branches...
The rooms with a view to the ocean are actually four, not two. We also normally clean the beach in front of the villa, as it appears from our pictures, wherever they have been posted.
All the other comments relate to external situations outside from our control.
Having a long track of excellent reviews, we are anyway sorry not to have fully satisfied these guests.
