Overview
Rental Home /
3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
Watamu, Coast Province
Baobab is a newly completed three bedroom house with infinity pool, set high up on the edge of the Watamu Marine Park, commanding spectacular views out across the Indian Ocean. It is already proving a very popular choice amongst holiday-makers.

All three of the double bedrooms overhead fans, mosquito nets and ensuite bathrooms - the master bedroom is air-conditioned. On the ground floor there is a comfortable living area with inside dining which leads out onto a covered terrace where outside dining can take place with views over the pool and out to sea.

Upstairs, a large entertainment area stretches the length of the house, topped with a traditional cooling makuti roof. A further bed within the roof space can sleep an additional two people, and the plentiful baraza seating is an ideal place to relax and enjoy your holiday.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The property is awesome, Ideal for families with children and adults alike. It is very private and secluded.

The pool was very clean but we had to remind them about replacing the towels (not a biggy). We spend lot of ours in it.

The rooms are spacious and beds are comfortable, but they need to be fumigated as they were bed bugs/Mosquitos/Insects which bothered us for the whole stay. The staffs sprayed every evening but still we had bites from them.

The staff were good and helpful. No issues with them.

The Kitchen was okay with all the right equipments, it was not sparkling clean, but that was expected as many people use it.

They have a big family room with dinning table.

They have a terrace and is good for lunch in the afternoon and a nap after that.

The best part is the view from the Verandah where by you are looking at the pool and the beach simultaneously. We had almost all our meals there.

We spent 5 night at Baobab House at the beginning of Oct 2015. We were 6 adults and a baby.
The house is well laid out, pool is great and the staff which includes a good cook, is terrific.
I have stayed at another place in Watamu but would return to this place in an instance.
