The space
The POOL HOUSE is a lovely private guesthouse designed with a modern twist of the traditional African-Arab culture. The golden hued walls glow as a result of the stunning Mombasa sunlight streaming in. It’s a fantastic place to stay for two people who want to enjoy the island paradise that is Mombasa… The large comfortable double bed provides fantastic views of the gorgeous lush garden through sliding doors, that lead to your own private veranda that is steps away from the swimming pool. The high ceilings with exposed beams makes the space airy! For those balmy Mombasa nights, THE POOL HOUSE is equipped with a ceiling fan and air conditioner, windows have all been mosquito proofed with mosquito netting, FREE WIFI, an en-suite shower and dressing room, fully equipped kitchen, with coffee maker, toaster, microwave, four burner stove, fridge, and we provide all our guests with FREE COFFEE & TEA. In case of the power outages that are sometimes common in Mombasa THE POOL HOUSE has a backup generator! Easy walking distance to THE BEACH approx. 10 mins (150 meters) with access to SERENA BEACH HOTEL AND SPA. This is the perfect place to relax!

Welcome to Kenya! You've picked a wonderful destination. We are sure you’ll have an amazing time here! We trust we can help you by offering a very good, clean and safe place to stay! As you can see we have several listings available for different tastes: All our listings are centrally located apartments, private rooms, and entire homes and farm stays in exclusively upmarket neighborhoods in safe areas of Kenya (Nairobi, Mombasa & Machakos). Check our calendar and feel free to book if something else catches your interest. We offer well organized, clean independent rooms for our guests all in SAFE & GOOD areas of KENYA. We also try to provide all the amenities and advice one may need! We love the Airbnb platform! We have been very lucky to have had guests that are fantastic, positive, and friendly! You don’t have to take it from US…you can read for yourselves their reviews under our profile- over 45 happy guests (coming to work or on vacation) have stayed in our places! We thank them for their kind feedback that has given us a "SUPERHOST" status here in Airbnb community. ** SO who are WE? SISTERS LIVING LIFE TOGETHER! Born and raised in Mombasa, Kenya. Sandra…a real-estate broker is a lover of food, friends, family and new adventures. Has a passion for hosting guests! LOVER of NATURE and an urbanite...loves discovering places off the beaten path. Lived in Chicago, IL for fifteen years and considers Chicago her second home. Currently lives in Nairobi but spends a lot of time in Machakos, rehabilitating a local nursery and man-made forest. She’s the epitome of hosting and showing you our African hospitality! "When I cannot travel myself -then I love when travellers come to me! More often she’d be the one you’d be communicating with ;-) Mwende…by day is a brand manager, When she’s not focused on work travel is her CALLING and she’s always excited and eager to experience different CULTURES and FOODS and so far has covered some of the UNITED STATES. AFRICA (South Africa, Swaziland, TZ, and Zimbabwe). EUROPE (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, and Switzerland and working towards heading to SOUTH AMERICA!! A typical weekend would most probably find her heading for a run, a game of tennis, or painfully dragging herself to the gym. If being paid to read was an option she would probably be a billionaire by now! In her happy crazy moments, you will find her running after dogs and trying to kidnap for snuggles! On a serious note most weekends are spent discovering new cafes and restaurants around Nairobi with friends, and some nights dancing the night away at a club. Mwende currently lives in Nairobi, Kenya. Has lived in Chicago for 4 years and Frankfurt for 3 and now planning on which city to next move to… As hosts, we try to provide best solutions for our guests so they can enjoy everything they need in our place and explore our city. We have functional properties, most of all amenities offered. We try to provide as detailed information as possible. Please feel free to ask us about suggestions of places to see, we can even help you plan a customized local tour. Happy travels to everyone! :))
