‘Rehema,’ Swahili for ‘compassion’ or ’empathy’ is named after our daughter. She was given the name by Matemwe villagers when she lived here during a 3-month power blackout across the whole of Zanzibar. Fun times – which we hope you will not experience!
The room hosts a large, comfortable double bed, with a day bed to lounge on. It has its own ensuite bathroom with electric water heater. We don’t have AC, but there is a fan and the room faces the sea. The Wifi works well in the room, and across the property. As our guests the house will also be all yours to enjoy.
A charming room that will hopefully put you in the holiday mood. Enjoy rolling out of bed for a dip in our new pool. Vacation vibes!

"This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain all!
Even if they're a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whomever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond."
"Utupoa is not only an extraordinary place of beauty and hospitality, but also a bit of an utopian society. That's because of Joyce's amazing ability to make everybody feel welcome and part of the Utupoa family. In the moment we arrived we felt the beautiful and peculiar vibe of the place - it was like arriving at a group of friends who would immediately accept you. Besides Joyce there is the great staff, everybody warm and welcoming. Five stars plus."
"Just an amazing and adorable place. It‘s a place full of love and kindness ... just like Home away from Home 😉 Tim and Joyce created a little paradise and also the Food is so delicious. Thank you for everything !! We will miss you !!"
"A stunning place with a very beautiful African-style interior and his own history. Perhaps the most beautiful house that we saw on our trip around the island. Lots of thanks to Joyce for such warmth and comfort. In this house you will really feel at home."
