Amazing stay in this beautiful house, incredibly well situated between the beach and marine park. Lissa and her staff were extremely welcoming and the service exceeded our expectations in every way.

Additional amenities & feature info
The Kenya coast has a North and South Monsoon.<BR>The winds blow from the North from around end of November through to April/May and then change to the South.<BR>This obviously brings changes on the beach,<BR>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.<BR>There are always areas that are clear and where you can swim.<BR>It is absolutely not a problem but I would like you to know the photographs are taken in the South Monsoon.
