The Cove Treehouses provided an amazingly secluded and romantic 4 day weekend. First class care by the owner and staff. Wonderfully off the grid. Staff can arrange snorkeling, fishing, etc if that is your wish or just allow you to relax and recover with your mate. Superb!

We stayed in the Cove Tree-houses for 6 days (3 couples) after 10 days traveling in the Samburu district and other places in Kenya. We all loved this place. It is private, relaxing, romantic and quiet. The rooms/ tree houses are beautifully decorated built in and around old Baobab trees and the ones we stayed in all had great ocean... More

We came down from our safari in the Mara, not knowing what to expect. We'd obviously researched through the internet, but nothing prepares one for the heavenly view that befalls one from the terrace of the treehouse - there's the Indian Ocean lapping up the beach, just metres away. And the lush vegetation, the sweet bird song, the exceptional service... More

We've just returned from a week at the Cove Retreat. It was fabulous- after a week on Safari and a long trip from the Maasi Mara we arrived really late and were met by staff, who had waited for us to prepare a meal. The rooms are lovely- we had treehouse 2 which looked straight out to sea- it's only... More

The cove is a beautiful, relaxing, rustic retreat. Its like your own desert island. We stayed for one week after a busy week on safari. Our treehouse (no.3) had a beautiful view and was fully equiped. Every morning we woke to the sounds of waves lapping at the beach below. The food was lovely and the mini bar was always... More

Just returned from The Cove Luxury Tree Houses. After a week of Safaris and a long journey to get there you could not find a more relaxing place to stay. The staff could not do enough for us especially Charles and Phillip. The food the chefs prepared was all very good (samosas very good). Rooms very clean thanks to Rosie.... More
