A perfect beachfront property for a peaceful vacation surrounded by nature. Wake up to the sound of African bird songs; swim in the warm Indian Ocean; walk on miles of sandy beach, where you will rarely encounter people. Relax under the baobabs and watch the sun setting over the dunes.Previous guests have raved about the quality of the staff including Bernad's excellent cooking.
This private house is on an acre of beachfront property with five large ancient baobab trees. The Baobab tree is indigenous, some of them more than 500 years old, with many beautiful stories, and they give a peaceful atmosphere throughout the whole property. Along side the Baobabs, there are also several acacias, another indigenous tree, providing shady areas when you’ve had enough sun on the beach.
There is a large open veranda that runs across the front of the house with cushioned seating, hanging swing beds and dining under a thatched palm (makuti) roof. The house is decorated with Swahili chairs, local kikoi’s are used for pillow covers and the whole house breathes a simple, elegant, beach atmosphere.
The ground floor has two double bedrooms with ocean views and ensuite bathrooms. One of the bedrooms has a veranda off the back which opens into the back garden with a large shaded sitting area more hanging swing beds. The kitchen and store are also on the ground floor.
The second floor has a large open space, most of which is covered by a makuti roof. On the terrace are built-in benches where you can gaze at the stars at night. There is a third double bedroom, which is open on all sides to the breeze and views. There is also a third bathroom on this floor as well as areas which can be used as additional outdoor sleeping space.
There is solar powered hot water and electricity to power ceiling fans and light when needed, but you may find you prefer oil lamps and candles in the evening.
