“A glimpse into paradise”

When coming to the Tree House in May for the first time, I was immediately caught by the magic of the place: it's unique open architecture, the beautiful interior design, the 360 degree view of the sea and the lagoon, the private hidden path to the sea, the fantastic sea food (ask for ginger crab!), attentive staff, great massages and yoga on demand make it the perfect weekend getaway from Nairobi. Paul then managed to top all this by taking us floating in Mida Creek during my last stay in September, which meant floating on the falling tide on the water leaving the Creek. An incredible experience which is only possible during full moon!
I recommend this place to everyone who is looking for a cosy escape, be it in two or with a group of friends or family. However, if you have small children, the open design of the place might make your stay less relaxing. ;)

My Kenyan husband and me (halb Polish, half German), got together our friends and families and celebrated our multicultural wedding at the Treehouse. There couldn't be any more beautiful, cozy, natural and simply perfect place for such gatherings (and honeymoons!) than this. We enjoyed every single moment.
The staff is super polite, kind, helpful, open.. and so on :)
The rooms are one-of-a-kind beautiful.
The forest, beach and ocean are amazing.
I just can't recommend this place enough. If I could, I would move in forever!! :)
(Just like everybody else who was with me and enjoyed it just as much as I did!)
Hubby and me already came back for our honeymoon. And we're definitely going to come back again and again and again!

Stay at the Treehouse a beautiful place and unique experience. The place itself is a wonder from the architectural point of view . It has lots of open space and each room is different and make you feel closer to nature.
The atmosphere in the place is amazing and the service excellent making you feel as part of one big family. I can highly recommended this place to everyone.
Btw it is also a good place to stay, if you wanna go kitesurfing:-)

“Little glimpse of paradise”
Reviewed 1 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Excellent location for those who like to stay at an original location, away from resorts and mass tourism. Fabulous for yoga-lovers, but also a very good offer of activities for the more adventurous and sporty types. Healthy and good food, beautiful rooms with amazing views. The rooms and the building are constructed in a very open way, so if you are a bit obsessed with privacy or you want to make a lot of noise, it is probably not the best place for you.

“An oasis in the trees”

Our week long stay at the tree house was beyond exceptional. The place is beyond words; you are sure to be blown away by the hospitable, kind staff as well by the sheer beauty of the house and the surroundings. The house has a sense of peace and tranquility so you are sure to find a sense of calm whilst there. At the same time there's a variety of activities you can partake in such as SUP, kayaking on the Indian ocean for sunset, snorkeling among the colorful reef fish or even running on the beach to the local ice cream shop:) You are sure to find something to do to keep you more than content. My friend and I celebrated our birthdays at the treehouse and the staff were thoughtful enough to bake us a special cake and have a memorable celebration for us. Be sure to watch a few sunrises and sunsets, they are amazing! I highly recommend staying at the treehouse. Watamu is a special place and where better to experience it but in a treehouse with ocean views:)

Stay at the Treehouse was an amazing and unique expierience. The place itself is a wonder from the architectural point of view - lots of open spaces, Kitengela glass on every corner, and the lack of windows, which make you feel close to nature. You are astonished and amazed everytime you enter the house or your room no matter how long you stay. Each room is different and the views from each one of them are astonishing and make you fell uniqe and special - from your bed you can observe both sunrise and sunset, the moon and stars, the ocean, mida creek and many many more things surronding the Treehouse located in the middle of a forrest.
Moreover, the Treehouse is not only an archtectural wonder. The atmosphere in the place is amazing and the service excellent making you feel as part of one big family.
Treehouse also offers a wide range of extra activities - you can go kayaking, snorkling, or floating in the creek, or do yoga and many many more other things. All the activities are well organized and offer unforgettable expieriences which you will most likely recollect and fondly remember for the rest of your life.
It is a perfect vacations spot for anyone - both for a longer stay or for a weekend and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

“Our delightful place in the sun”
Reviewed 18 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This was the most unique place I have ever stayed. The "Treehouse" is an architectural wonder of artistic light and organic form nestled into the surrounding jungle. The food and service was above all expectations. Our veiw of the turquoise ocean waters and gentle tradewind breeze had us in honeymoon mode throughout our stay. That said, there was a ton of fun activities to enjoy and we did.
