“The house is exactly as described and photographed. Tastefully built and decorated with lots of great west African artwork, polished neru and stressed wood. Staff were friendly and helpful. We opted for the cook, Cosmos, (although we ate out a lot in the two days as we’d come to see friends) so he didn’t have too much opportunity to show us his skills, but his fish lunch was excellent. Hugh was great with his communication. The beach is of course just idyllic. ”
Hugh's reviewsAs a host (4)
“This was the perfect place to chill and relax, the house is beautiful with stunning architectural features. Huge bedrooms with great en-suite bathrooms and lots of wardrobe space for clothes. We took up the opportunity to have a chef cook for us during our stay, Cosmos was a great chef and we dined on fresh local caught fish and lobster most evenings. And i musnt forget to mention the friendly and helpful housekeeper, Milcah who made sure our stay passed without a hitch. The house is perfectly situated very close to a spotless, white sandy beach, perfect for swimming. Thank you Hugh, it was the perfect end to our holiday in East Africa!! See you again soon ”
“Hugh has been extremely kind, helpful, fast in responding and thoughtful. He even came along with candles when there was a power outage in the area. Also the housemaid was very friendly and professional. All in all the house is great and we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Can totally recommend this place!”
“Dream house a few meters from an incredible white sand beach. The most beautiful beach in Kenya ! The place is wild and well located for visiting Funzi Island and Wasini Island where we saw dolphins, turtles and extraordinary fish. The contact with Hugh was easy and warm. It was a fabulous stay and we'll be happy to come back again :-) Thanks for everything Hugh !”
Where is it?
Galu Beach is the finest section of beach in Kenya. It's an extension of Diani Beach and is a residential area. The main Diani Beach commercial area is about 4 kms away, however very close to us there are 4 beach bars and restaurants - all with a few hundred metres along the beach. This is also a prime area for kite surfing and swimming. The sea is safe, no rocks and is protected by the coral reef about 1km offshore so there are no strong currents or big waves. It's great for kids and adults alike.
