Unique combination of charm, luxury, decadence and intimacy. Decoration is like a museum, garden a paradise on earth ; rooms are very comfortable and clean, and we enjoyed sitting at our own veranda. John and Mombasa made us feel very welcome and helped us out with reservations for snorkling and an excursion to Marafa.

I knew that these kind of places existed, but always thought that they were just way beyond my budget... To be honest, when I...

She has thought of everything. We arrived after a long days travel from Nairobi. Weary and tired our tuc tuc bobbled over the entrance gateway. And boom!...

I've been to Malindi many times but only just found African House - I will certainly go back again! Set in beautiful leafy gardens, surrounded by amazing African art and endless Lamu beds, this is a beautiful (and romantic) place to spend a few days. With only 6-7 rooms it means you get loads of individual attention (breakfast and drinks...

Returned to African House in February 2016 based upon our previous visit. So glad we did. Such an idyllic setting, wonderful staff and very comfortable accommodation. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, and I can't praise them enough. If you're looking for a non stressful holiday, or a short break, Look no further. Definitely returning on our next...

I have been to African House twice, and both my stays there were extremely pleasant. The decoration is unique and beautiful, the staff is very friendly, the pool and garden area are nice and clean, and breakfast is good and plenty. The beach is at a short walking distance. I can only recommend it!
