“Pefect beach family holiday!”
Reviewed 5 June 2017 for a stay in July 2016

Booked this along with one other adjacent apartment for a family vacation. There were 15 of us including kids and we loved that we had more than enough space! The large living room opens up to a balcony with stunning views of the Indian Ocean. The location is a short walk from a beautiful cove and also the touristy Watamu village where we took evening walks and enjoyed Italian ice-cream. We hired a local chef to cook local Swahili meals every day and the kids still talk about the food a year later. We certainly plan to be back!

“Superb view, cosy living area, lovely bedrooms and close to the beach.”
Reviewed 12 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Blue Bay Cove opened up to my eyes like a blossom in the gentle morning sun.
The sunrise and sunsets were true gems, not to mention the two beaches that are a bare 200 Metres close to the hotel. The tiny cove beach would be an excellent hideout for the couple or the bookworm with the sound of the surf crashing on the bare rocks...heavenly.
Please rent this, and oh, the chef was excellent.

“Beautifully furnished, gorgeous views, delicious food...amazing place to stay!”
Reviewed 8 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This apartment was perfect for a quick getaway from Nairobi with some friends and our small daughter.

We loved the furnishings, the well-equipped kitchen, the comfy beds, the multiple balconies all with lovely views of the ocean, the pool, the beach access and the convenience to restaurants, supermarkets and fresh seafood.

Directly in front of the apartment buildings is a lovely cove with some sand, but a lot of big rocks and tidal pools, perfect for exploring and seeing tidal life. There was no one there trying to sell us anything (except octopus freshly caught!). Just around the corner (maybe a 2 min walk) is a beach with the softest sand I have ever felt. It is in a sheltered bay so the waves are small and it is great for swimming once you get past the seaweed (might only be the time of year). Here there was more beach shops, bars, etc, and the usual crafts and tours sellers that go with them that tended to be persistent.

The pool in the apartment complex was clean and had a baby pool perfect for little ones.

We were there in off-season so had the place virtually to ourselves, though I imagine it would be nice (if not as quiet/private) at any time of the year.

I really can't think of anything I didn't love about this rental! One of my best renting experiences of a house/apartment!
