Guests often search for this popular amenity
Simple but comfortable Swahili style private house, with a house girl, gardener, and night time askari. There are 3 double, ensuite bedrooms with extra single beds and a bunked in the downstairs rooms to accommodate families.

The house has a lovely peaceful garden, full of palm trees, and a small pool.

The house is within 5 minutes walking distance to the creek where you can swim, and within 15 minutes walking distance to the stunning Garoda Beach.

The space
The property has exclusive use of a large garden and has a small but enjoyable swimming pool.

Unfortunately, the pool paint is chipping quite badly so it does not look as nice as it does in the photos at the moment. However, it is perfectly functional and our children play in it all day long! It is more of a splash pool for adults and the perfect place to cool off amongst the palm trees.

There are two ensuite bedrooms downstairs, each with a king size bed and two single beds.

All the main beds have over head fans and there are two stand up fans that can be moved around.

The third bedroom has a double bed and is upstairs, along with a good sized lounge area with a table tennis table and seating area.

One of the main and best features of the house is the large outside seating area under the makuti (local coconut palm thatch) which overlooks the swimming pool.

4 comfortable sunbeds are located around the pool for benefiting from the abundant sunshine.

The house is very secure with bars on all windows, locks on all doors, panic buttons to G4S Security and a night askari.

Where you’ll be

Watamu, Kenya

Kobe Garoda Beach is a short walk or Tuk Tuk ride away. It’s a beautiful spot, great for kite surfing, swimming and walking. You can hire sunbeds for the day at the entrance point. There are some great restaurants / bars near by including Pilli Pan, Licht Haus, and Ocean Sports. There are also large resorts where you can spend the day for a small fee, including Turtle Bay and 7 Islands Resort. You can hire boats or SUPs at the near by Captain Andy’s boat yard, and diving can be done with Turtle Bay resort or Ocean Sports. The best ice cream shop is Andreas, serving homemade Italian ice cream...only a short Tuk Tuk ride away. Some excellent Itallian restaurants on the beach are Papa Remo and Visiwa.

During your stay

We do not live at the house and will not be in Watamu during your stay as we live in Nairobi. We are available to answer any questions via the phone or email.

Our house girl Beatrice lives in the staff quarters when guests are staying. She is therefore available to help at any point but her official working hours are 8am - 5pm.

Beatrice will be at the house to let you in, and show you where everything is and to give you the keys.

The house is self catering and does not come with a chef but if you would like a chef, we can give you contacts and you can pay them a daily rate. Beatrice can help to prepare the evening meals and she is good at making things like chapatis and mandazis.

We also have a gardener / care taker, Ruben, who is in charge of looking after the outside areas and the pool. Ruben works from 7.30am - 5pm.

We have a night askari, Daniel, who works from 6pm - 6am. He patrols the garden at night and is there to open and lock the gate.
