    Additional amenities & feature info
    The Kenya coast has a North and South Monsoon.
    The winds blow from the North from around end of November through to April/May and then change to the South.
    This obviously brings changes on the beach,
    In the North Monsoon the sea weed is blown down towards the house and there for the beach is not a complete stretch of white sand.
    There are always areas that are clear and where you can swim.
    It is absolutely not a problem but I would like you to know the photographs are taken in the South Monsoon.

We were a party of 6 including 2 young children and we were knocked out by the location overlooking the beach and sea on both sides. The house with its separate guest wing is delightful, and the garden leading to the swimming pool area is just beautiful. We were very well served by the staff of 5. Sammy is a... more

Truly great place - we went first in November and were back within a month! Friends said it was the best house in Malindi and they were quite right. Great location, great staff, lovely owner, and above all a fabulous property. Can't recommend it highly enough... more
