We stayed at the Himaya house in early November and we had an amazing time. The location is fantastic, high above the beach (a private entrance to the beach, just follow the steps from the garden). The view from the master bath was spectacular! The kids (13+15) loved to play in the pool (no shallow section, you have to know how to swim). The staff looked after us very well. The chef Sammy prepared all...

Additional amenities & feature info
The Kenya coast has a North and South Monsoon.<BR>The winds blow from the North from around end of November through to April/May and then change to the South.<BR>This obviously brings changes on the beach,<BR>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.<BR>There are always areas that are clear and where you can swim.<BR>It is absolutely not a problem but I would like you to know the photographs are taken in the South Monsoon.
