We stayed at Makuti during high season, a time I dread but it had to be. Happily, the four nights and five days spent with owners Mabel and Peter could not have been better. While there were a number of guests, we never felt anything but calm, relaxed and able to have privacy. Mabel, Peter and the staff are great and by the end of our stay they felt like family. The bungalow was comfortable, clean, and welcoming. My favorite place was the upstairs "lounge", a perfect place for reading and watching life along the shore. The beach is perfect for swimming when the tide is in and for watching coastal life when the tide is out. It could not be better, tide out or in, for jogging or taking long walks. The food was tasty, with sizable portions. We were so relaxed that we had no desire to leave the premises to eat elsewhere, however there are numerous places along the beach to eat should one chose to do so. Also the village of Bwejuu offers a friendly glimpse into Swahili coastal life, A return visit to Makuti is a must.
