5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2015

From the moment Tiziana (the owner) welcomed us at the gate of her lush and well cared for home surrounded by a garden, we knew we were in for a treat!
Zawadi (gift in Swahili) Residence is an oasis near the sea. We were cared for like we were staying in a good friends home. The rooms were clean, comfortable and very well decorated with African art and one of a kind pieces that looked like something out of a fashion magazine.
We ate all our meals on the premises; prepared by Nancy the chef. All homemade and beautifully presented. No fast food or microwaving here!
John, who helps Tiziana keep the garden and house looking so beautiful, was also very kind to us. He allowed us to join him in his morning walk to the beach with the dogs.
We felt safe, well fed, and cared for. The only sad part was leaving.....
This is a place to spend some time and return again if you are able.
Thank you again Tiziana, Nancy, and John April 17-19, 2015
