Had an absolutely amazing break in house no. 3 this weekend. Gorgeous place, friendly staff, breathtaking views. Crystal clear ocean in your back yard as you watch a magnificent sunset against a surreal backdrop..Will be going back again soon. Very highly recommended...

6 of us stayed here last week in penthouse. Great accommodation. Perfect location in Watamu. Walking distance from restaurants or a short tuk-tuk drive away. Be prepared to eat Italian food in Watamu!

Went there with other couples and enjoyed every single bit about that place from the rooms to the view of the ocean. Walks inside the watamu village. The staff gave us personalized service and we're very polite and patient with us. Always willing to assist. This is a place to visit yet again.

It was a very nice, clean place. Everything was perfect except there was no housekeeping and even though Lillian (she was wonderful) promised to send the house keeper it seems she was reluctant to help with the dishes.we decided to wash ourselves

A perfect place for anyone who wishes to have a nice relaxed night playing games and chilling on the balcony with a cool breeze from the indian ocean. The night we stayed had a full moon and clear skies so we had a really nice view from the top floor balcony.
