The place is very very lovely. We had a great time there and we didn't want to leave. We are already planning to go back next time spending more days there. The staff were extraordinary professionals. We had an awesome time.

Everything was absolutely perfect from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. Isac and the team at the house always went the extra mile to ensure that we could fully enjoy our stay at the house (2 nights). I wasn't so sure about having pizza on arrival because I usually go to Watamu to gorge on sea food, but pizza at Jabali was an experience in itself. Seating around the pizza bar while Isac made pizzas for us was just incredible. I'm a picky pizza person. These handmade pizzas cooked in a wood-fire oven were the real deal. Other meals were equally as incredible. Isac really knows how to cook sea food (definitely recommends his prawn curry, and if you can order a big piece of tuna for seared tuna steaks or tuna ceviche, and do like us, bring your own wasabi, you won't regret it.) Also recommending Isac's chocolate cake and pancakes (bring some nutella or peanut butter to make it perfect.) The house is stunning. I've been to several villas in Watamu and Jabali is really special. Perhaps not the best ocean view you will get and not the traditional swahili style, but it's a beautiful modern house and the view from the rooftop terrace was dreamy. It's just a one minute walk to the beach from the house. We hope to go back soon and definitely will recommend it to our friends visiting Watamu. Thanks Kim for being so responsive and to the team at Jabali House for making our stay special.

It was completely awesome. The house was fantastic. Service was good. The whole staff was always on call and were very attentive. I've stayed at many houses on the coast and the architecture and decor here is phenomenal. One thing to note is that the view of the beach could be better, so Kim might want to trim some of the trees to improve the view from the pool. The chef/caretaker organized everything for us prior to arrival including a car with a driver. If you can accommodate enough people, it's quite affordable but try to negotiate the price.
