Volandrella looked stunning in the photos and it did not disappoint. This was one of the most relaxing vacations in many years. There are so many beautiful areas/beds to lie on and read/rest. The house has three stories and the views from the different levels are gorgeous. The garden is well kept with a pool, sun beds and shade. There are so many personal family touches in this home. Each bedroom is equipped with a massage table. We had a masseuse come every day- organized by the cook/manager Elson. He also arranged a tuk tuk driver who we used throughout the week. The cook was very accommodating preparing delicious meals and going shopping too for fruits and veggies each day. We so enjoyed our time here that we are planning to return in 2018.
I cannot recommend this place more! Its perfect! The villa is in the ideal location - the property connects to the beach and is close to a number of beach restaurants and resorts. Views of the ocean are absolutely breathtaking from the pool area and from the bedrooms. The beds are gigantic and the villa is decorated beautifully. The most impressive though was the service - the cook and the cleaner that are available all day were so friendly and accommodating. They made our experience above and beyond anything we could have ever imagined. I will be going back, and will for sure be recommending to all my contacts in Nairobi.
This is a lovely, lovely home just steps away from the beach. It has a great pool surrounded by a beautiful garden. The bedrooms/bathrooms are spacious and well appointed. But the best part of this villa is the staff. The chef was outstanding. He accommodated all of our tastes ( 1 vegan and 2 youngsters) and prepared delicious meals every day. He purchased fresh fish and veggies every day. He also helped us thru the village etiquette and accompanied us on a tour of the Gede Ruins and trips into the village. He made our stay in Watamu exceptional. Our housekeeper was always on top of things. He kept the house and grounds immaculate. We always felt safe with our nighttime security guard who was friendly and helpful. The beach 'vendors' can be overwhelming, but this is their livelihood. The kids on the beach are very friendly and loved playing baseball with my son and grandsons. The coral is beautiful and fun to explore. The surf is great too. Be sure to bring mosquito repellent.
