Simple Swahili-style beach house set in 7 acres of coconut palm groves and indigenous forest directly on the Indian Ocean. The house has recently been refurbished, a cottage has been added along with a gorgeous swimming pool and a star roof.
Msambweni beach is famous for its tranquility and laid-back family atmosphere. Here holiday houses have not been an intrusion but have fitted into the life of the local fishing community which continues in much the same way as it did a hundred years ago. With this goes easy access to coral reefs and low key fishing trips but with the high excitement of top class deep sea fishing in the Pemba channel within easy reach. The adrenaline kicks of kite-surfing, scuba-diving, wind-surfing and water-boarding can be found just a short drive away in Diani along with conveniences such as supermarkets and banks.
The 5-bedroom house is double-storey and airy taking full advantage of coastal breezes. In addition to the 5 bedrooms there is a baraza-style sleeping area with bathroom suitable for 4 teens and upwards. The house is just 20 metres from the empty white sandy beach where local fishermen still moor their dug-out tri-maran sailing boats.
A wide variety of cuisines available in Diani. These range from Pizza to freshly caught fish barbecued by the fishermen on the beach. There are also bars and nightclubs aplenty if that's your thing.
