Named after the South Monsoon winds which gently blows through the palms trees, Oceanfront is tranquility itself. A secluded hideaway, nestled on the beach, it is protected from the outside world by its ochre walls, which offer complete privacy to its visitors. The grassed, frangipani-studded walled garden frames a large freshwater swimming pool, which forms the heart of the house experience and has been home to many of Kusini’s famous parties.
The long generous lounging steps on both sides of the pool do not interfere with length swimmers, while providing an ideal haven for children and the less energetic.
Designed in the Swahili style, with traditional plasterwork and wooden beams, built of coral block and furnished with stunning and sympathetic items from around the world, Kusini House offers simplicity, luxury and style. The main house has two large verandas: the ground level overlooking the pool and the top level giving you uninterrupted views of the sea and the sunset.
On the first floor, you will find the breath-taking master bedroom wing with its massive four-poster wooden Lamu bed, two en-suite bathrooms and two private balconies. Here also is the dining area with a huge square Moroccan style table, surrounded by four comfortable cushioned benches. On the ground floor is a spacious en-suite guest room, with twin beds and a private veranda and a snug library room with a TV and massage terrace.
A generous entrance hall leads onto the pool veranda and baraza area, where you can while away the days and the evenings, gazing across the sparkling pool and out to sea through the Lamu door. At the ocean end of the walled garden, there are two separate en-suite guest bedrooms with private verandas looking onto the sea. Above these guestrooms on one side is a roof terrace with swinging beds; the other provides the perfect breakfast spot, each looking onto the sea and the swimming pool.
