“Best. Vacation. Ever.”

We stayed at this villa for 10 days and had the greatest vacation of all time. There were 7 of us in total including a toddler and we had plenty of room. The house itself it absolutely stunning, decorated in a modern Swahili style. We ate breakfast and dinner on the upstairs terrace where there was a very generously-sized table and outdoor couches. The house manager Donna was always just a phone call or text away to arrange a driver or a snorkeling trip. We constantly found ourselves just staring at the ocean in disbelief that we were there and how beautiful everything was. We opted to hire a chef and let me say the food was absolutely fantastic. We felt like royalty! They even arranged a small party for my daughters 2nd birthday and baked her a cake! Honestly the only complaint any of us had was that we could have used heavier blankets because it got pretty windy at night and we could of wrapped ourselves up on the terrace. I highly recommend staying at Villa Turquoise--I promise you will not be disappointed!

Hello everyone! We stayed at the villa Turquoise from 21.May for 2 weeks. We were only three of us: mama, papa and 5 y.o. daughter. Villa has really big and separate area with huge garden where local gardener grow fruits and vegetables so we could enjoy papaya, coconut, avocado right there. The villa is situated in the fishermens village Matemwe. Next to the villa you can find several hotels but during 2 weeks we saw only several tourists walking on the beach. The beach is covered with white sand, we played at the beach with my daugther every day. There are many urchins and driftweed in the ocean. So you need wear protective shoes to walk in the ocean. But by rising tide the urchins go deep in to ocean and you can swim savety. The villa was luxuriously furnished with wooden tables, chairs and other pretty accessories and is really comfortable place to have a rest there. Everyday there were tides and we caught an opportunity to swim in the ocean. But we enjoyed bathing in the pool instead. The sun was hot and at 7 a.m. we could get a tan. Staying at the villa was really enjoyable, the staff was really very friendly and helpful. Only ones a week we needed to discuss our menu with the manager Donna and all the rest of time we could be totally relaxed at the villa, because buying of products and cooking the staff makes for you. Two times we had snorkeling near the island Mnemba and it was great experience because the the aquatic fauna in indian ocean is very rich. But because of tides you need to choose the right time for it. We had an excurcion in stonetown which was arranged by manager of the villa Donna. Thank you Donna for everything!
In conclusion i would recommend this villa for people who likes comfort, privacy and best service.

I have travelled and stayed in numerous boutique hotels and higly-rated hotels around the world and Villa Turquoise stands out as an exceptional experience. I would not change a thing! Everything that is offered is there and indeed, the atmosphere is even better than the photos. We were a large group and the staff managed exceptionally well. We also travelled with an infant and small child, where a villa experience would always beat a hotel for convenience. We are just looking to return and return and return!
