The making of an urban paradise

Our story

In 2003, the Matshiya family moved into what is now Melina guesthouse and immediately knew that there was something special about the place. Located in Greystone Park, an exclusive suburb in hilly Northern Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe, the property was lovingly tended by the family in the intervening 20-odd years, with special attention paid to its gardens.
