We spent 5 days in this amazing house as a family of four, and we'll be back as soon as we possibly can! This extraordinary 5-bedroomed Swahili beach house is on the beachfront - life overlooks the white sands and turquoise waters of Jacaranda beach, just 10kms from Watamu.
Bene's house has been designed and filled with love for Swahili design and culture - four-poster beds are combined with antique Swahili artefacts built up over years, and mixed with shells and other finds from the beach. Every need and comfort has been considered, from a massage bed on the veranda overlooking the beach, to outdoor showers in courtyards, and in-door as well as outdoor dining areas. A great shared pool is available just behind the house.
The staff are lovely, and can help you decide on the best seafood and fish, which they can then turn into delicious Swahili or Italian meals. They will also help with organising dhow trips to see dolphins, snorkelling on the reef or searching for starfish in the rock pools along the beach. We did it all... and will be back again for more!
An amazing gem in watamu..nyumbayamadau is everything you imagine it to be and more. Excellent stay with girlfriends, the staff is absolutely amazing and nothing is too much to ask for. Service with a smile. Most serene place I have been to in a long time and the house itself is a work of art! Well done to the Bene and the team! Will definitely be back!
Nyumba ya madau is one of the most beautiful houses i have visited in a decade,it is located in an amazing and unique location, the beach is literally in front of the house,breathtaking sights,and such a calming presence,i felt it immediately when i entered the house.
It is a great family friendly,cosy, and relaxing environment with a stunning pool inside the compound,and a fantastic and super friendly staff, the food is of high standards and the rooms are very clean. I have to say what impressed me the most is the stylistic design of the house,and how spacious and accommodating it was.
I had a marvelous experience and recommend it is exceptionally worth it!the pictures do not do any justice, you have to see it to believe it!
Everything about Nyumba ya Madau is exceptional. Starting from the amazing and friendly faces working here, the fresh and tasty food served from morning to evening, and being able to walk 5 steps to encounter the perfect honeymoon beach.
I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for some 10 stars get away house.
Our three-day getaway to Nyumba ya Madau was just perfect! The house is cozy and well decorated, with beautiful locally-inspired furniture and stunning interiors. The staff is friendly and always available to help when needed, at the same time extremely discreet to ensure guests can enjoy their privacy and feel at ease in the house. The cook has been key in helping with food shopping and contacting local fishermen to bring fresh fish to the house, then cooked into tasty Italian- or Kenyan-style dishes.
The location of the house is simply spectacular, with a garden directly looking onto the white beach and the crystalline ocean. Spending a short holiday in Nyumba ya Madau was a wonderful experience: relaxing and reenergising at once!
