5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

The Boardwalk is a stunning five bedroom Watamu home set over three floors with the ground floor and pool set up high to take advantage of the views out over the mangrove and towards Mida Creek.

The staff were all friendly and helpful. Douglas cooked us excellent dinners. Sophie does the laundry daily and is...
