“Simply amazing!”
Reviewed 10 May 2016 for a stay in April 2014

I spent one week with my wife at the Nyumba ya Madau and I found it simply amazing. The house is located on a white sandy beach, in a very calm and private location. The chef is excellent and he cooked the most delicious seafood we have ever eaten. The house is clean, spacious and well decorated. I will definitely recommend this place to anyone and I cannot wait to be back with my wife soon!

“Breath-taking paradise, hope to return”
Reviewed 5 May 2016 for a stay in September 2014

We spent nearly two weeks at Nyumba ya Madau in Watamu and it was a perfect holiday. The house is beautiful and the location is stunning, right on the beach with a beautiful private garden and area right in the sand, there are gorgeous wooden sun beds and an external living room area that are just perfect to spend time and read. Literally a few steps to the ocean, feeling very private and secluded. The views are breath-taking. Needless to say much about the Watamu National Marine Park - the ocean is crystal clear and right at your doorstep.

The staff is also wonderful and extremely friendly and professional. The chef, Gabriel, is excellent and can prepare anything from fresh fish and seafood to delicious chocolate mousse, and the breakfasts were also really good. All the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. On top of this, the staff organised for a masseuse to come in nearly every morning, at very reasonable prices, very much recommended.

All in all, I would absolutely recommend Nyumba ya Madau for a holiday, both as a romantic retreat or as a family holiday since there would be enough space for ten people or so. We definitely plan to go back.

“The perfect coastal rental”
Reviewed 7 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We had a perfect 4 days at Nyumba ya Madau. We have been taking holidays on the Kenya coast for the last 14 years, and this is by far the most appealing place we have stayed in. The house is situated right on the beach and designed to catch the ocean breeze. It is elegant and each corner thoughtfully designed. Perfect for kids, with both sea and pool within 100 meters. Incredibly friendly neighbours, who invited us for a memorable Italian seafood dinner. Why did we have to come home?
