This is a simple but idyllic 9-bed beach house situated on a six acre beachfront plot within a grove of coconut palms on a 4-kilometre stretch of a dazzling white coral strand. Accommodation in the house consists of three double bedrooms, one triple bedroom, three bathrooms, a covered veranda, dining area, drawing room and tree shaded terrace.
There is also a secluded cliff top swimming pool and pool house. Guests are well looked after by the house's six resident staff, who ensure that you are comfortable and well fed. Msambweni is perfect for all beach and ocean activities; from snorkelling to water sports. The local fisherman will be more than happy to ferry you out to the reef or escort you on a fishing trip in a tradition dugout canoe.
Day trips to Shimoni and Kisite Marine Park, only 30 kilometres away, can be arranged locally and is recommended for those who wish to dive and for seasoned snorkelers. Keen fishermen can also rent a deep sea fishing boat from Shimoni, complete with an expert crew, from where you can fish some of the best waters the world has to offer.
While the house has a relaxed village atmosphere, Diani Beach, which is an easy 30 minute' drive away, is a hive of activity and perfect for those wishing to go shopping or visit a restaurant, bar or club. The seclusion of the house means that it is ideal for a family get away or for a relaxed or romantic break. However, for those wishing to take more active advantage of all the Kenyan coast has to offer, this seclusion is tempered by its proximity to Diani Beach and Shimoni.
The house comes with its own cook and staff who have an array of seafood recipes. Fresh sea food can be purchased off the beach at a reasonable price, as can fruit, vegetables and eggs. Other foods, drinks and beach necessities need to be purchased in Diani.
