“Escape to Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012 for a stay in February 2012
1
person found this review helpful

I stayed for a couple of nights with friends and their young daughter, would have loved to have stayed longer.

Location is great - fabulous views of the creek, perfect to watch the sunset with a few cocktails ! Beautiful house with Arabic feel, very spacious with lovely open seating area downstairs, outside dining area and great pool. Rooms are clean and very comfortable, all with A/C and en-suite facilities.

The staff are very freindly and the cook makes wonderful food, ask for the prawn curry which is divine. Perfect holiday retreat and ideal for couples, groups or families, would definitely recommend it !

“A gorgeous house in a spectacular location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2011 for a stay in November 2011

We spent a couple of nights here in November 2011 and found the whole experience idyllic. We just wish we had could have stayed longer.

The house itself is of chic Arabic design and a 5 min walk from the main road. It has a beautiful swimming pool & outdoor entertaining area with breath taking views of the creek. It is stylish & comfortable, furnished with large, air-conditioned bedrooms all with spotless en-suites, spacious mosquito netting and a balcony overlooking the swimming pool and creek.

The house staff were lovely and friendly. We were cooked an evening meal of local fish and vegetables which was delicious, plentiful and cheap!!

Bridge house is an ideal spot for a romantic escape, a tranquil place to relax with a book & a drink and also a superb spot for a fun & playful group / family holiday.

We would love to go back for all of the above!!

“Beautiful house in stunning location, great for a family group.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011 for a stay in October 2011

We have stayed at this cliff top house on several occasions and always take our nanny as we have a four year old, she loves exploring the gardens and the pool is so refreshing even to look at with the amazing view of the sea just beyond. We have often landed by boat on the soft beach below where the fishermen have their dug out canoes and taken the winding steps up to the house laden with sea food for our supper.

The light os magical at sundown and there 's constant gentle breeze. You can take your meals outdoors near the poolside barbecue area or outdoor dining room, with it's foliage cover.

The staff are very polite and eager to help.

The main bedrooms upstairs come off onto a large verandah/balcony looking out over the sea, with yachts and dhows

“Hidden Oasis overlooking Kilifi Creek”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011 for a stay in April 2011

Tucked away from the main drag of Kilifi just opposite the Manarani Club is Bridge House, once you travel down the narrow lane you come to an imposing typical Swahili style house which has the most stunning view over Kilifi creek.

Staff are very helpful and cook the most wonderful fish which can be purchased from the local fishermen who come by each day, just remember to haggle.

Pool is clean and refreshing. Rooms are all A/C and fans with mossie nets which makes for a very comfortable sleep.

Ideal getaway for a couple or large group of people who just want to enjoy the coast and chill out
