This is the south-most property on Kizingoni Beach, Lamu. Spacious, cool design and palm fringed position have made it a great favorite with family visitors and party groups alike.
Soft yellow walls, colourful shrubs and tall coconut palms around the central pool courtyard, allow complete privacy and security, while the three elevated communal areas – the breakfast roof, sundowner baraza and main dining terrace – provide huge views of the ocean, the beach and the passing dhows.
Entertaining areas are vast and cool, decorated with traditional carved plasterwork and sturdy hardwood furniture. Brightly patterned kanga-covered cushions invite you to sink onto expansive baraza seats or cool swinging beds that are so comfortable you never want to move.
There are bookshelves and bars, intriguing local artifacts, generous pots full of bright green ferns and palms and the discreet, attentive staff, cheerfully carrying trays of fresh limejuice or afternoon tea.
The palatial master suite, dominated by a huge carved mirror reflecting the facing ocean, has a breath taking view over the pool, the beach and the sea. Also on the first floor is a dining terrace with a table long enough to seat 16 comfortably, the perfect party venue!
The ensuite guest bedrooms have private terraces, large netted beds and working desks. Even the pool has floating beanbags! At the back of the garden is a child’s climbing frame with a jungle gym and small hut which can also be used for sleeping overnight. A separate kitchen, with a laundry and staff quarters stands behind the house.
Other features include, baraza areas, massage table, swinging beds and a large planted garden.
