Neem Tree, No 38

Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 9
Mombasa, Coast Province
Situated on a cliff at the north end of Kuruwitu Marine Conservancy, this comfortable house with tasteful furnishings, enjoys lovely views and gentle breezes. It has a mature garden and a fun sundowner deck just above the Indian Ocean. There is a gorgeous 12 x 6m infinity pool with a stunning pool house. There is a cook, a housekeeper, a groundsman and a maintenance man who also runs errands. The house has good security with panic buttons in all the bedrooms and there has been no security issues in the 20+ years that we have owned the house. Staff quarters can accommodate one extra if required. Direct beach access at low - mid tide. Steps to beach relatively steep for the elderly/infirm. Beach access at very high tide or for elderly folk unable to manage the steps is only a couple of hundred metres down the road on the public access... Read more

About the neighbourhood
Kuruwitu Beach is on an award winning Marine Conservancy. It is a residential area and as such there is no-one hassling you on the beach. There is a very attractive Beach Bar within walking distance of the house open Tuesday to Sundays for lunch. A ten minute drive away is Vipingo Ridge, a golfing estate with the only PGA branded golf course in Africa. The Ridge also has many other activities such as horse-riding, mountain biking, tennis and forest walks. Half an hour away is Kilifi with an excellent repertoire of water sports such as water-skiing, sailing etc. There are several very good restaurants in Kilifi.
Getting around
We recommend hiring a car (it is also possible to have a driver with the hired car who can stay on site) in order to maximise your stay. I can put you directly in touch with the company that offers my guests an very good daily rate. If you prefer to use a taxi service, then I have an excellent driver with a 7 seater car that I can recommend. He is based half an hour away in Mtwapa.

How to get there
Airport: Vipingo Ridge: 9.0 km
Railway: Mariakani: 50.0 km
There are 3 airport options:
Mombasa Airport is just over 40 km away and has the most flight options as well as usually being the cheapest. However traffic going through Mombasa and Mtwapa can mean the journey from the airport can take an unpredictable amount of time so it is not my favourite option. Most flights into Mombasa originate from JKIA Nairobi. Turkish Airlines flies into Mombasa from Europe.
Malindi Airport is just under 70 km away and will take a predictable amount of time - approximately 1 hour and it is a pretty drive.
Vipingo Ridge - there are direct flights on Safarilink from Wilson Airport, Nairobi to the private airstrip at the ridge which is 10 minutes away from the house. This is the most favourable and stress free option but usually does cost a bit more.
