This is one of the most beautiful and elegant beach houses on the Kenyan coast. The house is a spacious family home, beautifully furnished and immaculately maintained by highly capable and loyal staff. The house is located on the main stretch of Tiwi Beach, where the beach and sea bottom are sandy with swimming, windsurfing and snorkeling directly in front of the house. The Tiwi reef is fully accessible at low tide, along with Tiwi’s wonderful rock pools. Walking south down the beach for 10 minutes one can wade across the Mwachema Creek at low tide to the historic Congo mosque and Diani Beach.

The house itself is beautifully sighted on a rise overlooking Tiwi Beach taking full advantage of the breeze which blows off the Indian Ocean. Set in 2 1/2 acres of gardens, the spacious grounds include one of the largest and oldest Baobab trees on the south coast, numerous Tamarind and Neem trees, plus coconut palms down to the beach and the owner’s citrus orchard in the backyard.

There are no large hotels on this stretch of Tiwi Beach which make it an exclusive retreat from the hustle of so many of the coast’s crowded and tourist intensive beaches. Yet it is only a 10-minute drive south to Diani Beach with all of its restaurants, shopping, banks, hotels, medical facilities, golf, diving and fishing activities, as well as the Ukunda airstrip from which one can access all of Kenya’s major game parks. The Shimba Hills Game Reserve is less than an hour’s drive to the west, and Shimoni, the Kisite Marine Park, Wasini Island and Pemba Channel big game fishing are just an hour to the south.

Self-catering is made easy with fruit and vegetable stands nearby and with Tiwi’s local fishing fleet just down the beach. Fishermen bring their daily catch of snapper, kingfish, calamari and octopus to the kitchen door and can also take orders for next day delivery of fresh crab, shrimp and lobster.

This place is just breath taking beautiful, it's an African paradise. I suggest ppl to go see this beautiful home, stay in it, and feel the luxury and rejuvenate yourself in Kenya, the home of the most powerful man in the world Barrack Obama. Come visit and enjoy yourself, you will never regret it.

The best seafood I've tasted in Kenya they've used, prepared by the friendliest staff! I took my family to Baobab house for a week in the Easter holidays. I wanted a relaxing beach retreat for them after all the bumpy roads and safari and I was not disappointed at all. Everything about our stay was outstanding! On our arrival we were greeted warmly by Riziki the chef, Simon the maid and Samuel. They made us feel right at home. The house was always well maintained and the food prepared by Riziki was phenomenal! We had a choice of fresh seafood from the beach every lunch and dinner. If at the end of the week we did not want to leave and we were sad when we say goodbye! I would definitely recommend this house, mainly because of its idyllic location, incredible staff and on the beautiful and well equipped house. I would love to go back to the Baobab house in the near future.

Staff were welcoming and looked after us well. The house was very comfortable, especially the lounging mattresses on the veranda! Not too close to Diani but near enough to get supplies. A pool would make it perfect as we had to watch out for jelly fish (February). Liked the peace and quiet best.
