Malindi villa description

Welcome to Himaya House. Situated on a coral buff overlooking Silversands Beach, Malindi, the views are stunning. There are two magnificent Baobab trees which give a very special feeling to the property. There is a short path down to the beach - only accessed through a carved wooden door - giving you complete privacy and exclusivity.
The house is spacious and cool with a north or south monsoon blowing most of the year. The main house has a large living area plus veranda with the Master Bedroom up above.
All rooms have a spectacular view. Two of the bedrooms are in a separate unit with steps down to the swimming pool.
The Master bedroom is up above the main living area and has its own entrance.


The Kenya coast has a North and South Monsoon.
The winds blow from the North from around end of November through to April/May and then change to the South.
This obviously brings changes on the beach,
In the North Monsoon the sea weed is blown down towards the house and there for the beach is not a complete stretch of white sand.
There are always areas that are clear and where you can swim.
It is absolutely not a problem but I would like you to know the photographs are taken in the South Monsoon.
