Home rental in Casuarina with swimming pool

Casuarina house

  • 4 bedrooms
  • sleeps 8
  • 5 bathrooms

“Total Relaxation” My wife and our children (boy 8 and girl 3) plus our extended family (two more adults plus girl aged 4 stayed in Maisha Marefu for the month of August. We were treated like royalty by John and his team from the time we arrived until we left. The house is spacious with 4 bedrooms plus huge outdoor/indoor living areas and the grounds with a salt water pool are very well looked after. The kids had great fun finding the numerous lizards in the gardens including a large resident (not harmful) who would sun himself on the rock outside the childrens bedroom, much to their delight. There is other numerous night life including small bats who would fly through the open living areas at night searching for insects. The pool has stairs so younger children can be catered for on these but you much watch them if they cannot swim as it is deep very quicly otherwise. This can all be done from the very comfortable sun lounges beside the pool which are set up each day with fresh towels. It was an extremely relaxed atmosphere. The hardest choice we had to make was what to have to eat that day and John had an extensive menu to select from and is always keen to learn a new dish. This was all purchased by John and served up with great gusto each day. You can also purchase fresh lobster, crabs and fish from local fishermen who would come to the back gate to barter. The owner, Chris was also a pleasure to deal with and his property managers on the ground in Malindi, Hans and Ute ensured that all was running well by touching base most weeks and advising on trips to take. We took a 3 day safari from Malindi to Tsavo East NP which was expertly organised by Hans. The house is located around 10 minutes walk from a beautiful beach where, except for the beach boys some of whom are very persistent, you could extend to a brilliant walk of 3-4 kilometres on the white sand and even walk out onto the inner reef at low tide. The town of Malindi (easy ride in a Tuk Tuk of around 10-15 mins) is a peaceful regional hub with some excellent restaurants including I love Pizza which is fantastic and we returned a number of times. We also heard that Old Man in the Sea was well worth a visit. Both are on the same stretch of road in Malindi. Security was never an issue but can be in Africa with Kenya is no exception. We had a full time security guard (Samini) at the house during the nights and felt extremely safe and did not feel at all anxious at any time. There are also panic buttons placed around the house. They work as I found out one afternoon when i preseed it thinking it was light switch. Less than 5 minutes later the security team arrived ready for action much to the surpise of all of us. The grounds are also walled entirely so you could leave the children to make the most out of the area. Also take a look at the Marefu Depression about 1 hour from Malindi and do visit the local co op which showcases local traders and their handcrafts. All profits go back to the artisans who run the centre. You can find an excellent coffee in Malindi with the italian influence clear here. Visit the Karen Blixen centre for this which is near the supermarket 7 to 7. Do not miss a vsit to the Crocodile Farm down the road from the house, where you can witness a feeding frenzy amongst the residents on most afternoons as well as let the kids handle a number of animals including toroises, lizards, snakes etc. You can also purchase crocodile meat here which John prepared with a minimum of fuss. Alot like pork. Also visited the ruins and Sukoke Forest towards Mombasa in a well organised day trip through Hans. The kids loved it with the monkeys. The things that bugged us. As previously discussed the beach boys were painful at times. They are essentially all trying to make a living but the numbers of them are astounding and all offer the same type of things. Buyer beware as you are seen as a cash cow and prices are hugely inflated so be ready to barter if you take a trip or buy any product. Some can get agitated so be prepared to walk away and be courteous but firm. Supermarkets. Go to the Italian Supermarket a little out of town as the prices were more competitive here than the 7 to 7. We found this out late in our stay.

“A beautiful place to stay!” We have been very fortunate to stay in some great houses in Essaouira but Dar Nicola is one of the best places that we have stayed in. I would highly recommend this property as you cannot fault it- staff are very friendly, beds are very comfortable, you have a great rooftop terrace, a great kitchen to cook in, lovely living area and Nicola has added some fantastic decoration pieces that make the house feel bright and welcoming!

“wonderful & spacious family destination” We spent two weeks in early March at the "Ocean Sweep" for a fantastic holiday in Camps Bay/Cape Town. As other reviewers have noted, the house is extremely large and very comfortable for groups and families -- we were 5 adults and 2 children and significantly appreciated the size of all bedrooms, bathrooms and living space. There are wood floors throughout the main floor which were great for the kids to play. We loved the outdoor patio with BBQ and pool for cooking, enjoying wine and watching the spectacular sunsets. The owner, Patrick, is extremely friendly and communicative - he even organised cleaning for the week, which was a wonderful additional luxury. He and his family also use the house so he makes every effort to keep it in good working order (with the help of a local property mgmt company). The house has a large two car garage and we believe a car is definitely needed for the stay, both to explore the city and to take runs for groceries, etc. Yes, the walk to/from the beach is quite strenuous but it required exercise for all the eating we seemed to do! All in all a great holiday in a stunning city from a very functional home.

“Sublime” Neem Tree is a holiday let with a difference. I have stayed in many rentals and this is a unique home, home being the operative word as this character house is furnished to the highest standards and as soon as you walk in it has a feeling of being lived in and has many personal touches, reflecting the owners good taste. I have just spent a month in the house on my own and could not have picked a more delightful place to stay. The garden is a haven, having many mature trees and shrubs attracting much wildlife. The newly constructed pool and pool house are superb and the views are impressive. The pool is maintained daily to a very high standard.The many rock pools on the beach and out on the reef offer many hours of exploring and extraordinary sea life. Reuben, Pili and Emmanuel are dedicated staff and cannot do enough to please, they made me so welcome and looked after me thoughout my stay impeccably. This is a fairly remote spot and if you are seeking peace and solitude, this is what you will get although saying that I can imagine it is a wonderful place for a family with children. Only ate out once at The Vipingo Ridge with friends and I can recommend, lovely setting and very reasonable. Having spoken to other guests who have stayed at Neem Tree and many other properties in the area over many years, they stated that Neem Tree was the best.

“Truly outstanding property, spectacular location” The quality of the accomodation is truly outstanding and the attention to detail of the building and the fittings and furnishings is unbelieveable. The house is kitted out as if it is the owner's home, so that you want for nothing to make your stay comfortable. I would single out the bathrooms in particular as being exceptional, especially as there is one in every bedroom which makes a group or family stay so much easier and time-saving. Meal times around the kitchen table or vast dining table were very memorable and the sheer amount of space in the lounge, together with comfy sofas makes it immediately very relaxing.

“A luxurious, stylish maison just a few steps away from a snorkel and swim in paradise.” Our family of five ( two teenagers and twelve year old) had a relaxing and enjoyable ten days on Eden Island. We loved the fact that we could walk to a choice of private and beautiful beaches, where the snorkeling was outstanding. The maison was simple and stylish, with every necessity (and many luxuries) provided. Day trips from the island are essential, although we became so relaxed and comfortable that it was often hard to move from the beautiful maison pool, where we could gaze out at the turquoise sea and tropical forests on the mountains. Day drives to the endless and exquisite beaches, and the delightful restaurants on Mahe are essential. Our highlight was a trip to La Digue, where we hired bikes to explore the quaint little island. Paradise for urban weary souls.

“Romantic, tranquil getaway” My husband and I took some time off and spent 3 fabulous days at Pearl Bay. It was relaxing, romantic and exactly what we were hoping for. The service we received from Peter and Tinashe were AMAZING. They also advised us on restaurants and things to do in the area. There is no TV in the room so we spent lots of time reading and when my husband wanted to watch a rugby match the Saturday afternoon, Peter sent us to the Yzerfontein Recreational Club - what a treat! It was a true West Coast experience and highly recommended - expect to stay longer than planned... Bottom line, we've already booked for next year!

“Beautifully peaceful location, people and holiday experience” Many thanks to John, Veronique and family for making our stay in the Seychelles and the "House" so memorable. The couple were very helpful in advising us where to go on Mahé, the main island, and Praslin where we stayed. The House itself was as the online images suggest – clean, bright and well cared for which made us feel immediately at home. If I had to be critical of our stay I would mention the occasional crow of a distant cockerel breaking the morning peace however, the most enjoyable thing for us about the House was sitting on the terrace early evening and enjoying the beautiful view. A superb stay that I can highly recommend.
