    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.

We stayed 5 days in this lovely house. The house has a perfect location on a coral rock. That both give the house and the garden/pool a fantastic view over the ocean but also a natural “protection” from the beach boys. The villa itself is beautiful, well maintained and very clean. All the rooms are hugs and from everywhere in... more

Through a carved Lamu door in the cliff face on the beach, up the winding stairs through tropical gardens including two magnificent baobab trees - and you are looking out over the white powdery sands and the warm sea. Himaya is a lovely house - spacious and airy with arched verandas and three large double bedrooms each with en suite... more
