About our home

Our family home is set in a private, leafy garden with many mature trees. It's an idyllic retreat just 200 metres from the fabulous white-sand beach - the beach has twice been voted "Best Beach in Africa' - and is within a secure, 3 acre property called Tamani, which also has other houses and some beach apartments. Tamani is renowned as one of the nicest on the whole south coast. The architecture is distinctive mix of modern swahili style and the Garden Cottage is filled with light and air. There's indoor and outdoor dining and seating areas with couches for easy enjoyment of the tropical climate and there's a shared swimming pool next to the beach at the front of the property.
The beach is also protected by a coral reef. This reef is about 1.5 kms offshore and runs for almost 1,000 kms from Watamu down to Zanzibar. As a result, the sea has clear, warm water, a sandy bottom and is completely safe for kids and adults alike.

The main house has a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a 2nd double bedroom plus smaller single bedroom which share a bathroom. There is a separate guest suite in the garden (8 metres from the house) with a large double bedroom and en-suite bathroom.
