The beach house is perfect for families, for parties, for group gatherings or honeymoon. We offer affordable self-catering accomodation but also provide our guests with a cook and housekeeper to make your holiday relaxing and enjoyable. This is where you can come and be spoiled by our staff - eat fabulously-fresh seafood caught daily by local fishermen and try the local Swahili dishes inspired and influenced by the ancient sea-trade from India, Arabia and Africa. ​Enjoy magnificent views of the gardens, pool and the sea from all angles of the house.You can sit at the dining table on the 1st-floor balcony and watch the dhows sail slowly by and, occasionally, the camels loping along the beach. Parents can relax and enjoy the views while keeping an eye on their kids in the children's pool. There are loads of entertaining spaces as well as quiet corners to get away from the crowd.​. ​​​More
