Large and airy home, with two en-suite spacious double bedrooms, set in a one-acre tropical garden with a swimming pool. Perfect for families and water-sports lovers. The house is situated within a palm tree grove, just one minute's walk from the stunning Mida Creek and just a few more minutes away from the Watamu's white sandy beaches.

The space
The house has two very large double bedrooms upstairs with ensuite bathrooms, and one bedroom also has a large balcony attached. Downstairs is the hallway, kitchen and spacious living room, in which two more people can also sleep if necessary (the two 'Lamu' (sofa) beds can be set up with bedding and mosquito nets). The house is airy, 'beachy' and simple, with a hint of Swahili style throughout.

The house is very private, though it shares part of the large, colourful garden with a smaller guest cottage, with shared access to the swimming pool and large patio area. It is set in a beautiful palm tree plantation, one minute's walk from Mida Creek.

Our housekeeper will be on hand to keep things clean and tidy, and for a small extra fee, can help out with cooking meals. If you're interested in extra help, do let us know and we can suggest some options.

Please note, we have two resident rescue dogs and two rescue cats, who are all very friendly and love children.

Where you’ll be

Watamu, Kilifi County, Kenya

The house is located in a peaceful palm plantation next to Mida Creek, among other homes and local villagers. Captain Andy's Boat Yard (for fishing fanatics and water sports lovers) is just a two minute walk away. We are less than a ten minute drive from the centre of Watamu village, and just two minutes from Watamu beach.

When you book the house, we will send you our own guide to Watamu, with all the best places to eat, visit, spa and shop.

ACTIVITIES AVAILABLE:
- There is the 7km Watamu beach thats sits in Watamu's beautiful marine reserve (just a 2 minute drive/15 minute walk from the house) with snorkelling, kite surfing and stand up paddle boarding. If you would like to arrange these activities, we can provide you with the contact details of local companies that organise this.
- Mida Creek is equally stunning and there is easy access to it from the house, perfect for sundowner cruises, swimming, snorkelling and watersports.
- For golfers, there are two courses not far away, in Malindi (30 minutes), Vipingo Ridge (50 minutes) and a driving range in Watamu.
- Watamu village itself is a colourful, charming fishing village with a warm and vibrant Swahili community. Also, under the influence of some Italian and British residents, Watamu has become home to some of the best pizza, gelato and cocktails in East Africa!

During your stay

As a family, we are not based in Watamu full time (currently between Nairobi and the UK), so although we visit our Watamu home often, we may not always be present for guest arrivals. However we are always contactable, and have two very helpful and knowledgeable house staff on hand, who are resident at the house at all times.
