It's spacious with three bedrooms - love the open floor space for the living room and dining, the light and the Swahili decor - and the bedrooms are charming. It's child friendly, easy for the physically challenged, great for couples and for family. Martina and Jacopo are really nice hosts making for a very pleasant stay. It's close to the...

My husband and I were booked to stay at Simba House. for 5 days. Unfortunately, 3 days before we were to stay the pump in the pool broke down. They sent us a message letting us know that the pump broke and the pool would not be able to be used for the time we were there. They offered us...

Jacopo and Martina together with classy Chef Elias are on a winning formula with a fusion of east Africa and the Mediterranean - luxury, Swahili-styled accommodation and authentic Italian cuisine (grilled red snapper Mediterranean style; smoked sailfish carpacio with a balsamic glaze, homemade gnocchi smothered with a rich tomato / basil sauce etc...). Tucked well away from the high impact,...

perfect stay in Malindi, gives you the opportunity to discover the region, much more interesting than a beach resort. Warm welcome by Carlo and Terry. nice room, nice house in garden with pool, just a 200KES tuktuk ride from the centre, walking distance to the beach.

I have just spent 6 nights at Simba House and feel completely rejuvenated !! Beautiful, quiet house with comfortable rooms/ensuite. The Italian owners Terry & Carlo are gorgeous people, very kind, considerate and made me feel very much at home. They spend most of their time on the second floor of the house so you can enjoy the bottom floor...

Sima House is a really peaceful haven, located down a beautifully named quiet lane, a short distance from Malindi's best beaches. Terry's attention to detail is impeccable. The bedrooms are spacious and beautifully furnished. We were made to feel very welcome and to use the living room space as our own. There are two very cute dogs on the premises,...

We stayed at Simba house for the weekend and it was such a great place. Terry was very welcoming and she really made us feel at home. The house is gorgeous and every time we went out and went back it always felt like going home. Even though this is also where Terry and Carlo live, the manage to make...

My boyfriend and I spent 3 beautiful days at Simba House in July. Terry and Carlo, the owners, made us feel home from the very first moment we stepped in. The B&B is extremely clean and enjoys an enviable location, being situated 150mt away from the Marine Park. The great attention to detail, comfort, Carlo's stories and the three dogs...

Sometimes when places look great on the net, they fail to live up to expectation and you are left thinking how talented the photograper was to make it look so good. Simba House does not come in to this group - looks great on the web IS brilliant in the flesh. Don't expect to be fawned over, you are staying...

An amazing house in a beautiful compound, green, flowers, fresh, quite. The pleasure of being waken up in the morning by the birds singing! The owners are a really nice couple that from the very first time made us feel at home. Full of little details, such as tea with cake as a welcome afternoon, super nice breakfast, beautiful rooms,...
