Holidays Greetings from Casa El Norte, Galu beach

Greetings from Casa El Norte on Galu beach. I hope this email finds you well and in good spirits. We are glad to be able to host you, your family and friends in the past years.

2016 has been a busy year for us. In supporting the local community business, we added a giant Tridacna Gigantea fossil shell clam, excavated along the Kenya coast, to our local collections. It's 10s of thousands if not 100s of thousands years old! The clam is very beautiful and deserves to be put in the center of the Villa. Meanwhile, the herd of goats roaming around the Villa has been very productive and added a few more baby goats to the herd. As part of the up-keeping effort, we spruced up the Villa nicely with a new coat of paint and the Swahili decoration around it is fully completed. We put in new mosquito nets and frames, new cooker, new bath and toilets down stairs. Also we are in the process of building new seats for the lounge area.

As 2016 is coming to an end, we would like to take this chance to thank you for all your support. Wish you happy holidays and a great year ahead. Hope to see you again in the new year.

Warm regards from all,

Aurelia, Jane and Macharia

********************************************************

Casa El Norte is an exquisite villa with uninterrupted access to one of the most unspoiled stretches of powder white sandy beach and turquoise ocean in the world. Its unrivaled idyllic location and tranquility make Casa El Norte the perfect getaway. The Casa is designed in an open plan layout amid 3 acres of indigenous coastal forest, opening towards the beach through roll-back French windows.

A large wrap around veranda with access from the living room, dining room, and down stairs bedroom gives you a full view and the constant presence of the beach and ocean. The ocean facing living room invites plenty of sunlight and atmosphere. Beautiful yet simple local furniture and pieces of art give the spacious room warmth and character. Listening to the waves while sipping a cup of famous local spice tea can be the most relaxing and invigorating past time of the holiday.

Casa El Norte has 4 spacious rooms, with 3 bathrooms and an extra guest toilet. Two of the three upstairs bedrooms open up to a large sun deck. The Colobus bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. This room opens up onto the sun deck with panoramic views of the ocean and allows for romantic star gazing. The Gecko bedroom is ocean-facing, and is connected to the sun deck, which allows for private sunbathing sessions and out-door cocktails. The Starfish bedroom comes with large windows that allow lots of sunlight and swirling ocean air with calming views of the garden. The Baobab bedroom has an en-suite bathroom; this room has direct access to the beach, which allows for cool afternoon naps with the sound of the ocean lulling you to sleep.
