Review

Again, an expansion off the nearby Matemwe Main, Matemwe beach house is aimed specifically at a family or small group that would like some privacy. Sitting right on the main beach, and offering a pool, private dining room and butler service, this has come as a welcome addition to the portfolio. Certainly, at a time when everyone is looking for value for money and a great beach, then this property ticks the boxes. It also offers something slightly more rustic than its competition on the island.

Beach

As with many of the properties up on the northern parts of the island, the beach here is a little “tricky”, for want of a better word! Stunning at certain times of the day (when the tide is in between), it can also disappear as well as quadruple in size at times. Not a bad beach, but probably recommended for those wanting an occasional swim rather than to spend all their time.

Rooms

Really liked the general layout of Matemwe Beach House. The rooms are nothing all that special and are more practical than anything (they would only have a view from the bed if you were on your arms right off the end!) with two doubles downstairs and a small twin up in the rafters for the kids! The main benefit is that they open straight out onto the decking of the communal areas.

Layout

We really like it as a family villa! There is a good-sized dining area (which can be closed off), and then a covered balcony and a sunning area next to a pool that is sunken into the decking. What this allows is views out across the beach to the sea from pretty much everywhere. It has been thought out well and simply works.

Features

Wifi for free…only in the dining area of Matemwe Main

Good layout, great views, good access to the beach,

The beach is good at times, no aircon, priced quite high
