Chale Reefs is a fantastic beach house on Msambweni beach, a 2km stretch of white sand. The house sits in 4 acres of private gardens with a pool, tennis court and 50m of beach frontage. The house is fully staffed. While at the house, they do everything they can to make your stay how you want it to be. They cook, clean & do the laundry. Their smiling welcome is a big part of what makes Chale Reefs such a special place for couples, families and groups of friends.

The space
There are four double bedrooms, each with their own bathroom.
Two bedrooms upstairs open onto a wide sea-facing balcony. Another bedroom on the ground floor opens onto the garden which leads to the beach.
There is a large galleried sitting room and a dining room also overlooking the sea. All meals can be served outside on the terrace if you prefer.
The house is fully staffed including cook, house staff, gardeners and askaris.

Within the grounds there is a 12m swimming pool with a vast pool house where one could spend the whole day. Alongside the pool is a tennis court, recently resurfaced, and we have also added a concrete table tennis table underneath a large mango tree.

Despite all that it is the beach that makes Chale Reefs so special: 2km of white sand, largely untouched by development and used almost exclusively by local fishermen and a sprinkling of tourists. The gently sloping beach and rock pools in the coral mean there is safe swimming for all ages at high or low tide.
An outer reef lies about 400 metres off shore, teaming with tropical fish and a variety of corals. Snorkelling trips in a traditional ngalawa can easily be organised through contacts in the village.

Where you’ll be

Msambweni, Kwale County, Kenya

Msambweni is the name given to a group of villages about 25kms south of the resort of Diani. The nearest village to the house, at the northern end of the beach, is Mwaembe which means "Place of Mangoes".
Fresh fish and fruit are delivered to the house daily and other basic items are available in the village.
Diani is a largish resort and has all the amenities you would expect. Banks, shops, restaurants, bars, as well as diving, windsurfing and kitesurfing facilities can all be found there. You will need to do your shopping in Diani for all but the most basic provisions.
About 30 minutes further south is the Kisite Marine Park providing some of the best diving, snorkelling and deep sea fishing on the east coast.
