Mombasa house description

Karibu! - Welcome to Diani on the South Coast of Kenya (about 35 kilometers south of Mombasa), which is famous for its powdery white beach.
My house is located about 400 meters from the beach and has just been completed - please enter:
Its 170 square meters are built in African style with a Makuti roof (palm leaves) which, due to the dormer windows and the fresh sea breeze, always ensures that the place is pleasantly cool.
The house has 2 bedrooms and accomodates 4 people. In the large double beds you will feel comfortable under the spreading mosquito nets. Each bedroom has its own modern, separate ensuite bathroom with waterfall shower and separate hand shower - a pressure pump ensures that you can really enjoy it. Wardrobes and a safe are also provided. A five-stage ceiling fan in each room will also add to your comfort. And, needless to say, of course bedsheets and towels are provided.
A fully equipped kitchen with fridge, stove / oven, microwave / grill, toaster and coffee-/espresso machine ensures that you will not miss any amenity. If desired, a chef can be hired who will please you with his creations (to be paid separately on site)
You will take your meals on the spacious roofed terrace, on which you will also find, next to the dining area, a comfortable seating in African style, on which you can relax heavenly.
From here you will overlook the generous garden and the swimming pool, in which you can enjoy both the sun of Africa and also pleasantly cooling shadow - thanks to the beautiful tree population. Or simply observe the monkeys who gather from the near forest to visit in the evening twilight.
In the spacious upstairs overlooking the terrace and the swimming pool (gallery) you can make yourself comfortable in a Rattan seating and watch one of the many international TV programs (also ZDF) on the flat-screen TV (satellite connection). For your own program design a DVD & CD player is available.
Internet access is possible via an existing USB modem without problems (starting credit 500 MB included - beyond that there are merely the fees of the local provider).
Should you utilize a car during your holidays, you will find a double-carport on the premises.
Your needs will be taken care of by the local house management (English speaking), with whom you can also lodge special wishes. Alice, the housemaid, comes every weekday, makes the beds, cleans the house and takes care of the laundry. Washing machine is available (1 machine private laundry per week is included). Tsuma also comes on every weekday and takes care of pool and garden.
Also your safety is being taken care of - the community in which your holiday house is located is guarded 24 hours by Askaris. Additionally, you find three alarm switches in your house (which you hopefully will never have to use) which give you the certainty that an experienced security group will be with you within short.
In Diani you will find several supermarkets with ample supply (quite comparable to Europe). Besides it is worthwhile haggling with the sellers at the numerous indigenous stalls about the price for juicy exotic fruits and fresh vegetables. Diani offers everything you don't want to miss on vacation - a variety of restaurants (should the kitchen remain cold once in a while), bars, discos, casino, boutiques, souvenir shops etc. The beach bars Forty Thieves and Nomads (upscale cuisine) are located in the immediate vicinity - here you can try out for once to ride a camel. Sufficient medical assistance is ensured through a hospital and several pharmacies.
In Diani there are versatile possibilities for the active vacationer. Off you go with jogging on the kilometer long beach, which near the waterline is sufficiently hard not to weary in soft sand.
But this is of course just the beginning - water sports may not be missing in such a paradise: diving, snorkelling, kite surfing and deep sea fishing are on the list. Quite a few schools / agents in the immediate vicinity offer their services. And if the training was successful then the nearby diving grounds of Wasini Island hardly leave a wish unfulfilled - you can make a day trip there, explore the riffs, also as snorkelers, or simply watch the dolphins playing.
Also an 18-hole-golf course is not missing.
But what would a holiday in Africa be without watching wild animals in their natural habitat? The possibilities to do so are almost limitless. Start from the nearby Ukunda Airstrip to a one to three day trip to one of the famous national parks Tsavo, Amboseli or Masai Mara in order to observe the 'Big Five' (elephant, rhino, leopard, buffalo, lion). You will be accommodated typical local style and undertake (depending on your prepaid program) several 'game drives'.
You would like to have the whole thing one size smaller? No problem - why don't you simply try it with 'Shimba Hills' - a national park only about 40 minutes car drive from Diani? There you can meet giraffes, elephants, buffalo, antelopes and zebras. And in the immediately adjacent 'Mwaluganje Elephant Sanctuary' the elephants run directly across your path. And you will be home again in the evening!
Even a trip to Mombasa with its historic old town and Fort Jesus is worthwhile.
I hope I have managed to arouse your appetite for an amazing holiday a bit and would be delighted to welcome you as my guest.
Kwaheri!




P. S.
The listed price includes all services described (esp. 1 machine private laundry per week, 500 MB internet access) - only electricity costs (set off against your deposit) and, if desired, services of the chef need to be paid separately.
From Germany, Air Berlin and Condor fly directly to Mombasa, Turkish Airlines and Ethiopian connect to Mombasa via Istanbul and Addis Abeba respectively. Other airlines are flying to Nairobi. From there, there are good connections to Mombasa such as Kenya Airways or Fly540. Or you could fly from Nairobi (Wilson Airport) directly to Ukunda with flysax.
Airport transfers can be arranged - costs (Mombasa) are about € 35 - 40/leg (to be paid directly to the driver), dependent on the number of people / the volume of the luggage.
