House | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12
The arrangement with the main house being more spacious, and with AC in the bedrooms, often lends itself to the over 20's being up top and the under 20's being in the beach house.
It works well with my 6 children. Here you have a complete holiday on your doorstep, and for golfers, only a 10 minute drive away. It is the perfect place to unwind and switch off the mobile. If you need the mobile on, Vipingo is one of the first places to be on G3, and the network quality is excellent.

The great thing about this holiday is that here is masses of space for everyone, numerous places to veg out, either on the beach or in the lush tropical garden, and plenty to do. The pool is spectacular as it weaves round the coral, ending in a hole in the rocks with a waterfall cascading down. Great for massage.
The tennis court is brand new, hard surface and amongst the best in the country. The occasional monkey may try his luck, but our two adorable german shepherd's should see them off.
The property has a ten foot wall around 3 sides, 2 askari/security guards at night, and is connected to an immediate security backup.
If both properties are taken together there is a discount. If both properties are taken as a package with our up country Navaisha home, there is a further discount. All on application to the owner.
The Kenyan Coast region
The Kenyan coast is divided at Mombasa, north and south. Vipingo is north coast, about one hours drive from Mombasa, and on the way to the resort areas of Kilifi, Watamu and Malindi. Clamkara is on the beach at Kuruwitu, which is right on the coast one mile from Vipingo Village. As one experience Kenyan said to me ' Kuruwitu is like Malindi was 40 years ago'.
This comment was directed at the unspoilt nature of this small 3 miles of beach, and the fact that there are no hawkers or beach bums to disrupt your enjoyment of the beach.
What has happened in the last 4 years is the development of the first 36 Hole Golf and Housing complex at Vipingo, nessled on the hillside amongst a sisal estate. This has transformed the fortunes of the area, as this is a high quality development, with a huge airstrip that will shortly take a scheduled airline to Nairobi, and the first 18 holes are the best in East Africa by a long way. It has brought welcome hostelries, and only minutes from Clamkara you can now be sitting in considerable comfort sipping your sundowner amongst international clientelle.
The climate at the coast is always hot, humid sometimes in Jan-Mar, although a little cooler in Jun-Aug with the onset of the SE monsoon.
The Ridge golf development has been described above, and out of interest further golf courses are about to start construction at Kilifi, only 20 mins away.
About 1 km south on Kuruwitu beach, there is a marine conservation project, that oversees a stretch of coastline from unregulated coral collection and illegal fishing practices. This has resulted in fish populations to increase, and the wardens are happy to take visitors on unforgettable snorkeling adventures. They also have equipment to hire.
At Kilifi there is a watersports centre, where everything from waterskiing, diving, sailing ,kite-surfing and fishing can be found.
