Our stay at Himaya house was perfect! Everything, from the location (overlooking the Malindi beach and Indian ocean), to the house (spacious, well-maintained, and absolutely spotless), to the staff (so friendly, kind, and helpful), to the food (honestly some of the tastiest, freshest food we've...More

Himaya is the most beautiful property in a totally stunning location. Perched on the corner, it gives views across the sea and length of the beach, allowing you to feel on the beach and also secluded at the same time. The bedrooms are peaceful with...More

Additional amenities & feature info
The Kenya coast has a North and South Monsoon. The winds blow from the North from around end of November through to April/May and then change to the South. This obviously brings changes on the beach, In the North Monsoon the sea weed is blown down towards the house and there for the beach is not a complete stretch of white sand. There are always areas that are clear and where you can swim. It is absolutely not a problem but I would like you to know the photographs are taken in the South Monsoon.

About the neighbourhood
Both Malindi and Watamu have Marine National Parks, and the goggling is very good. Scuba diving is available, as is Kite surfing, Wind Surfing, and other water sports.
How to get there
Mombasa is the closest international airport. Both charter and schedule flights arrive daily from Europe, North America and African hubs. Malindi is an easy and scenic two and half hour taxi ride from Mombasa. Malindi also has its own small airport which services domestic flights, unfortunately there are no flights Mombasa - Malindi. However Nairobi is an hour or so away with regular flights in and out fo Mlaindi. Himaya House is 15 minutes from Malindi airport and 10 minutes Malindi town. Cheap car hire is easily arranged with your domestic licence or Tuk Tuks are plentiful and an easy way of getting around.
