The apartment described in this offer is the biggest (65 m² living space), best equipped one we have and we'd love to welcome you here.
Not only the terrace is extra large (30 m²) and comfortable equipped with a couch, swing bed, two ceiling fans, big dinner table as well as a coffee table, but also the interior spaces have enough room and appealing furniture.

But after all, outside is the best place to be in Kenya. The private, shady terrace (30 m²) with view to the garden is due to two ceiling fans even on hot days a area to relax.

The kitchen (11 m²) with gas stove and oven, big fridge (and freezer), A/C and enough cooking utensils is easy to use during a long term rent or holiday. We now also have a Microwave, a Sandwich Maker and a Toaster in this kitchen of our Superior Apartment.

One of the small, nice details of this apartment are the cabinets containing the glasses with view to the blooming Bougainvillea-plants. But the furniture and ornamental elements made out of tropical timber are supposed to give every apartment an individual, special appearance.

The sleeping room comes with a big double bed, mosquito nets, A/C and fan. The TV is only to be operated with a provided DVD-Player at the moment! There is no SAT-TV/Channels to choose as of now.

Additionally, you will find a desk, big wardrobe and bookshelf.
In the bath room you have the option to shower with warm water.
Sweet Water / Drinking water is freshly put into containers every day. You can use it to cook, brush your teeth or even for drinking. It is completely safe (we buy it from a Drinking water supplier) - we drink it everyday and have always been fine. Keep in mind that in most holiday homes in Kenya you have to buy every drop of sweet water by yourself! At our place, only very cautious people have to buy water for drinking in sealed bottle in the supermarkets.


Bedclothes, towels and daily cleaning (6 times a week) by our housekeeper as well as gas and water are included in the price.

Power is to pay extra.
If the A/C is normally used, 1 week/ 7 days costs about 1.500 ksh and has never exceeded 2.800 ksh before. You can check your use at any time by looking at the power meter in your apartment. If the A/C is not used at all there is nearly nothing to pay on top. We actually will not charge regular electricity use - 100 ksh Power Usage per day are free and most of our guests do not to have any extra amounts.

Guest access
Pool - per quest one pool bed with mattress, garden.

Other things to note
If you like, our housekeeper does your laundry (one bag) for 300 KSh / washing. She does it in her private time and likes the chance to earn some extra money. And you will not need to worry about washing, drying or ironing during your holiday!

+++Power is not included on the rental price and will be charged according to usage. +++
1KWH costs 20ksh / 0.18 €/ 0.2 USD.

As a host: My girlfriend, Nora, and me say Karibuni Sana from Kenya! I built three cozy, little houses and a swimming pool and designed a small little garden and welcome all other nature-lovers and uncomplicated travelers to visit us here. Nora will do most of the communication nowadays as I am very busy at work (music, art) for months now. See you soon in Diani! As a guest: Don't worry, this old crazy artist won't disturb anyone. Me and my girlfriend are completely uncomplicated and have no special needs. We mostly travel for work.
