Oh my goodness we couldn't believe our eyes when we saw this place! You never know what you are going to get when you book somewhere new but we could not have been more delighted!
Absolutely beautiful "compound", so well maintained and designed, it was hard to leave every day to go and explore the local area, we would have been more than happy to just sit by the pool all day and enjoy the scenery!
The family running the lodges were also delightful, Piera the owner could not have been more helpful to us and I felt sad when we had to leave!
We spent 4 days in Watamu, Piera and her family were incredibly friendly, helpful and happy to answer questions about the local area etc. The breakfasts are also amazing so always opt for those!!!
The location I thought was perfect, a little off the main road and a tuc-tuc to the beach (if you don't fancy walking) is only 100ksh/200ksh.
I would definitely recommend to ANYONE!
