“Peaceful and relaxing”
Reviewed 12 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The property was just what we expected in a great location. All was in good repair and the pool was lovely. The cook produced superb food. The two man canoe was great and we enjoyed being out on the creek.

“Peace, simplicy and security.”
Reviewed 26 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

i chose this property because I was looking for somewhere that was reaonably priced and in a less touristy part of the Kenyan coast.
The villa is reached down an unmade road about 2.5km from Kilifi town. It is beautifully situated among small farms and bush just metres from the creek and an unspolied beach area. Very safe for swimming but you have to time your swim trips to fit in with high tides.
Very sapcious, big rooms. a lovely veranda (great for monkey and birdwatching), beautifully maintained gardens and simply but tastefully furnished. The pool was also a delight, not big but a perfect temperature for a cool down soak and swim
Solar powered throughout. We found that this more than adequate for our needs. Didn't ever feel we were missing out through not having ac.
There are 4 members of staff who look after the property. All were very easy to get on with and they did a great job of making us feel at home while getting on with their tasks without fuss or intrusion. Very helpful with all the usual guest needs and preparing some wonderfully tast meals. Also offrered valuable insights into local communities and culture.
So if you're looking for peace, simplicy and a sense of security in a less developed part of the Kenya coast I would happily recommend.

“HAKUNA MATATA”
Reviewed 5 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Absolutely perfect ! Residence (s) in the heart of the nature, not far from a small Kenyan village. View of the creek, which flows a few hundred meters away into the Indian Ocean. One word to sum up the past stay there: Calm. Calm in which the residence is bathed is absolute, disturbed only by a few birds. Comfortable rooms, nice living room, charming bathroom and mesmerizing terrace thanks to the view and as I said : the Calm. I highly recommend the villas if you want to have a good time abroad. 15 minutes away from Kilifi's city center by tuk-tuk, several hotels for water activities or just a drink, and of course lovely staff. I recommend.

Liked best: the staff, the nature, the calm (you understood this, weren't you?!), the sunrise from the terrasse, etc.
Liked least: I swallowed a bone while eating a fish, that's it !
