Shwari House is a luxury beach house with pool set in 3- acres of private gardens at Kuruwitu on the Kenyan coast north of Mombasa.

The infinity pool looks out across the Indian Ocean and the community-run Marine Protected Area right in front of the house. At certain times of the year, migrating Humpback whales can be seen from the veranda, or you might be lucky and see turtles hatching on the protected beach. However, all year round the panoramic view of the sea is spectacular.

More information

The space

The house comfortably sleeps 10-people, and has five ensuite bedrooms, four doubles and one twin.

Three bedrooms are on the ground floor (two doubles and a twin room) and two double rooms on the first floor. There is a huge covered roof terrace which is the perfect spot for some yoga or just afternoon relaxing.

Our chef Sharif does all the cooking. He has a versatile repertoire but specialises in dishes made with locally caught fish. He is happy to step aside if you want to cook, but most people let him do what he does best. By the way, if you like chilli, ask him to make you his secret recipe chilli sauce.

There is a night guard, and househelp, Wycliff, keeps the house clean and tidy.

Guest access

The whole house, pool, and garden are for your use only.

Interaction with guests

Sharif will be your main point of contact once the booking has been made. However, you are welcome to speak to us or email if you need anything.
