From the owner

Situated on a cliff at the north end of Kuruwitu Marine Conservancy, this comfortable house with tasteful furnishings, enjoys lovely views and gentle breezes. It has a mature garden and a fun sundowner deck just above the Indian Ocean. There is a 12 x 6m infinity pool with a lovely pool house. There is a cook, a housekeeper, a groundsman and a maintenance man who also runs errands. The house has good security with panic buttons in all the bedrooms and there has been no security issues in the 20+ years that we have owned the house. Staff quarters can accommodate one extra if required. Direct beach access at low - mid tide. Steps to beach relatively steep for the elderly/infirm. Beach access at very high tide or for elderly folk unable to manage the steps is only a couple of hundred metres down the road on the public access route.

The pool and beach: Kuruwitu Beach is one of the last unspoilt beaches on the Kenyan coast. Despite it being blissfully bare of people and beach boys/hawkers, it is secure as there are 'askari's' patrolling for the marine conservancy. It is also unusually clean as the conservancy oversee the picking up of the debris that is common along most coastlines. The snorkeling metres off the shore is excellent with an abundance of tropical fish, octopus, lobster and other marine life (some rare). There is a glass bottom boat as well as a fishing/dolphin spotting boat for hire. The conservancy also offer guided tours of the reef where there are even more wonderful snorkeling spots.

The infinity pool set in front of the house has a 'baby pool' section. The adjoining pool house is large and comfortable with a bar and small drinks fridge as well as a living and dining area, a water feature and sunbeds. The terrace below is not safe for young or unaccompanied children.

The house: All the large bedrooms are air-conditioned and have standing fans. The master bedroom has its own sectioned off veranda as well as a nook with a desk and an extra bed. The middle bedroom has a double bed but there is plenty of room for a cot. The rear bedroom has 2 single beds and a bunk bed. All bedrooms are ensuite with large bathrooms with showers.

There is wi-fi although our data bundle is sizeable but not unlimited.

The sitting/dining area is big and very airy with good security wrought iron all around. It is nicely furnished in a coastal style with wooden overhead fans and 'lamu beds' as sofa's. There is a games chest with scrabble, poker etc for adults use and a darts board upstairs - also for adult only usage please.

The kitchen is relatively small compared to the rest of the house and is manned by Reuben who is a competent cook specialising in seafood, curries ,Italian, British and swahili style cooking. Pili is the housekeeper and takes care of the laundry and general cleaning. Helen comes in to help with larger groups.

Activities: If you can bear to drag yourself away from the fabulous pool and beach - the world class PGA Vipingo Ridge golf course is less than a 10 minute drive away. The elegant club house has a good restaurant in a beautiful setting. They also have a very pleasant Beach Club within walking distance to the house which is open for lunch Tuesday to Sunday as well as dinner on Wednesdays.

Kilifi which has supermarkets, some nice restaurants and a bustling little town is a 25 minute drive away to the North. Dhow trips can be taken up the creek here. Diving and a multitude of water sports (sailing, windsurfing, ski-ing etc) are available at the Mnarani Club. Malindi is a 1.5 hour drive Northwards.

Head 30 minutes south and Mtwapa has several excellent restaurants and tourist activities. The Bamburi Nature trail is 35 minutes from the house as is City Mall. Nyali is less than 40 minutes away with a cinema, shopping complex, hotels and night clubs. Old town Mombasa (Fort Jesus etc) is approx 45 minutes drive depending on the traffic.

Owner's reply:
I am sorry to hear this feedback about Reuben. I haven't ever heard anything about him not following the menu list. Will speak to him about that. Big groups can be a challenge for a single cook so I do employ someone extra to help in the kitchen. I do always appreciate if guests can let me know any problems personally at the time so that I can try to have it addressed whilst they are still at the house.
