Seaside villa is an amazing villa with a rustic feel. Own private plunge pool and the beach is just a short walk away. We stayed there for 3 nights and we loved every moment. The chef Cosmos cooks amazing food and to your hearts desire.
You definitely want to spend a weekend here!!
Beach is right next, security is optimum, well maintained pools, friendly and competent staff, very relaxing.
This villa has so many positives:
1. Hugh, the owner, was extremely responsive and helpful in answering questions and providing assistance as required.
2. The staff are fantastic - Cosmos the chef was so helpful and lovely, being willing to buy fish for us and veg/fruit; Milka the maid, is equally sweet and made sure the villa was kept clean the whole time.
3. The location is great - a short walk to the beach but also tucked away a little so you don’t get constantly hounded by the beach boys.
4. We enjoyed the pool and living area, although during the June-Sept months, a heated pool would have made a big difference.
The only downsides for us were really down to personal preference. We are less keen on Swahili style houses; rustic stone floors and minimalist bathrooms etc. The photos to us slightly overstated the reality. The monkeys were also to us an irritation (though we totally appreciate to others, an attraction). There were a few other minor issues but nothing worth mentioning here.
If you like rustic, this place is for you. A lovely stay, surrounded by lovely staff, in a stunning location.
We had an amazing experience in this property. We were a group of 4 adults and 3 kids and the property fit us perfectly and it is a beautiful home.
Just a few glitches, the beddings and towels could use some replacement as some were old and torn. The beds were super hard which made it hard for all of us to have restful nights. The food was average and could be tasteful, breakfast was always late as chef arrived after 8.30am and the kids woke up earlier even after we mentioned we would like to have breakfast at 8.30am. These things did not change our overall experience, we just felt like some honesty and some bit of commitment in work is needed from both the chef and the housekeeper.
A beautiful villa, set back a bit from the beach so it's quiet and lovely. Very spacious, huge rooms, lots of breeze. Will definitely visit again!
