I highly recommend this place. It is right on the beach. The building is beautiful and clean. The food was amazing. The owner, Janne, was very helpful and was available as needed. He always promptly answered my emails and worked with us on our accomodation needs. The staff was friendly. At night, there is a guard on duty, so we felt safe (even without the guard, we would have felt safe). There is a little bungalow right on the beach where you can get a massage. I took advantage of this ($40 for one hour) and was put into sleep coma by the masseuse and sound of the ocean. We stayed for three nights and didnt want to leave. If youre a diver, One Ocean Divers is located about a ten minute walk up the beach. Matemwe is a beautiful beach with a big reef. It is less touristy than other parts of the island. Again, i highly recommend this place. I would stay here again without a doubt.
