“Absolutely fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

What a wonderful villa set in an expansive private property on the coast just south of Mombasa.
Our family of 5 adults and 4 children stayed at the Waterside Villa for a week while discovering the local surroundings and culture. The setup of the villa was perfect for us with 4 large bedrooms and 3 deck areas around the swimming pool. Before arrival we had asked Mike (the owner) to arrange the shopping which was perfect. Every day our food was prepared by Dan, Daniel and Mildred. Mildred also provided laundry facilities which allowed us to travel much lighter than normal. Also we were able to return home without the huge amounts of dirty wash that usually ends the holiday! Dan was always enthusiastic and willing to cook using as much locally sourced fish as possible. He took great pleasure in the challenge of preparing a birthday cake for one of the children which was wonderful. Internet is arranged using 3G dongles or sim cards which suited us perfectly. The swimming pool was kept clean and was wonderful for the children. Mike and all his staff have created a true sanctuary with attention to the smallest details paramount. We also received excellent advice and tips to visit local workshops and a memorable safari together with Southern Cross Safaris. We would definitely recommend the villa to everyone.

“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Our group of two families stayed at Waterside Villas this last holiday season and had a great time. We were 4 adults and 6 children and found the Villa to be wonderfully set up. The villa is actually two similar units on either side of the pool with a great eating area and lounge overlooking the pool. The setting is great on the coast and with a beach accessible right off the grounds. The staff was very attentive and Daniel our chef did a fantastic job. The fisherman came each day with squid, prawns, snapper etc. Daniel prepared it based on our wishes, though his "swahili style" quickly became our favorite. The indoor and outdoor spaces are both beautiful and comfortable and make for many great areas to read, play a game, chat a little, or take a nap. THis was a great setup and would love to return. thanks for everything.
