Following a journey with crazy jams at Miritini and the Ferry, landing at Monkey Beach House was just the burst into holiday mode my friends and l needed. The welcome truly made us feel at home. The property itself is beautiful, with swahili architecture and decor, and open spaces. We especially enjoyed the open balcony overlooking the pool and the...

About the neighborhood
Great for families, for parties, for group gatherings or a honeymoon. This is where you can come and be spoiled by our cooks - eat fabulously-fresh seafood, plucked from the sea each day; try the local swahili dishes, inspired and influenced by the ancient sea-trade from India, Arabia and Africa with spices from Zanzibar and fresh coconut from our own trees.

You can sit at the dining table on the 1st floor balcony and watch the dhows sail slowly by and, occasionally, the camels loping along the beach. Parents can relax and enjoy the sights while keeping an eye on their kids in the children's pool.
If you are active, this is a great place for kite-surfing, wind-surfing, diving, snorkeling and sailing to the reef in one of the local out-rigger sail boats, called 'ngalawa&#...
