House Rules

As we like to say, 'utupoa' means 'humanity is great.' We like to live up to this in terms of how we treat the beach, each other, and our relationship with the local village.

Our location dictates that we look after the environment. Water is a precious resource and electricity is still very much a privilege, not a right here. We ask that our guests respect and understand this paradise we are lucky to spend time in, and to help us protect it.

We had a great time at Tim & Joyce’s place. The communication was super easy and quick and the place looks even better than on the pictures. The beach is beautiful and perfectly quiet. We had a great stay here.

We had the most wonderful, relaxing stay at Utupoa. The pictures really don’t do it justice, it is STUNNING! Joyce was extremely welcoming and absolutely lovely. We couldn’t recommend Utupoa more!

Utupoa is piece of heaven on earth. From the moment you walk in, you are transported to your own magical adventure. You can tell the owners put a lot of thought and effort into decorating the main house and creating a welcoming space. The view from the breakfast and lunch area is…

I can't say enough good things about this place. It was the best place I stayed in Zanzibar and I'd recommend anyone to stay longer than they planned, as I wish we'd been able to! The food was also exceptional (and adapted to my being vegetarian, but my husband not), so I'd enc…

Tim was a pilot in the Middle East when we first came to Zanzibar on a flight he was operating. It was 1992, before electricity, tarmac or cell phone networks. We fell in love with Matemwe and have made it our home. It is a home that we like sharing, and are very happy to welcome…
