About 2 miles outside the little village of Takaungu we found this hidden gem. It's a bohemian beach house that simply invites to chill. The location is directly on the white sandy beach. We slept upstairs under the palm front roof and as 3 sides of the "room" are open we could see countless stars during the night. As this beach house is east facing the sunrises each morning were spectacular. I went from swinging in the hammock to sitting on the breezy veranda to swimming in the Indian Ocean. Just bikini and kikoi needed, its amazing how little we need for living. At night time the caretaker lit the paraffin lamps & candles that gave the house a warm, yellow glow. I strongly recommend Taka-shak to anybody who wants peace & quiet in a secluded location. Wonderful.
