Holiday Rental House
The Beach House is a fantastic getaway for a family of 8. High tide is only a few mtrs from the house, and the sound of the sea is an endearing feature of this unique position. There is a winding drive right down onto the beach through the 4 acres of palm trees and bourganvilea, climbing the coral cliff. The cottage has 4 lovely airy bedrooms off a wide corridor, and the sea breeze is always blowing making it extremely pleasant to sleep. There is a cosy inside sitting room, and a charming covered verandah and sitting area to relax in the breeze. The charm of the place is by being on the beach, with its safe inner sandy playground leading into the bar/rondavel where you can relax and dine in the cool of the structure at any time of the day.

At the end of the inner beach we have built a new makuti massage parlour, where for less than 5 ukp, you can have a full body massage in complete privacy. The beach itself is inside the coral reef, about 2 km offshore, and there is world class snorkling from the beach. The new hard tennis court, infinity 16 mtr pool and world class golf resort 10 mins behind the house, complement an idylic holiday destination.There is a DSTV airial if you bring your own decoder and TV.More

About the neighbourhood
The Ridge golf development has been described above, and out of interest further golf courses are about to start construction at Kilifi, only 20 mins away. About 1 km south on Kuruwitu beach, there is a marine conservation project, that oversees a stretch of coastline from unregulated coral collection and illegal fishing practices. This has resulted in fish populations to increase, and the wardens are happy to take visitors on unforgettable snorkeling adventures. They also have equipment to hire. At Kilifi there is a watersports centre, Three Degrees South, where everything from waterskiing, diving, sailing ,kite-surfing and fishing can be found.
How to get there
Mombasa is the nearest centre, only 1 hour south from Vipingo. There are numerous daily flights from Nairobi to Mombasa, both from Jomo Kenyatta Int Airport and Wilson domestic Airport. There is now a daily flight from Wilson to Vipingo, which is less than 10 mins from the house. These generally connect with the direct international Flights from Europe and SA, such as BA, Virgin, Kenya Airways, KLM, Air France and SA Airways and numerous Airlines which have one or more stops. There are also Chartered flights from Gatwick and Amsterdam, generally run by Monarch, Thomas Cook etc which fly directly into Mombasa. You can usually get seats without accommodation on this weekly flights at much less than the scheduled Airlines. Once in Mombasa there are plenty of taxis, hire car outlets avail...
