LionsHome = beachvilla = tranquilidad = recuperation = dreambeach = safaris = top site = special extras...
LionsHome is a beach villa, comprising 2 bedrooms, one bathroom, a kitchen, terrace, balcony and a large living room, situated on a secluded and very quiet property of 700 sq.m with dense tropical vegetation including banana trees and coconut palms, colourful flowers and shrubs. The villa is intended for self-catering but you can book a chef through us (or on your own) for the duration of your stay for the respective fee, who will spoil you according to your wishes. If you don't have any excursions planned, you can spend the daytime on the shady terrace or in the well-maintained garden - they all have a steady and pleasant breeze. Then you can let the day fade out while you have a sun-downer on the secluded balcony waiting for the chef to call you to dinner.
If you travel with more then 4 - 6 people, we can offer you accommodations in the neighbouring house.
LionsHome: Do not fear, no lions will be visiting you at night. The name stems from the astrological signs of the owners.
LionsHome has direct access from the main Beach Road (means it is not in the bush - a major security advantage!!!).
LionsHome is only 250 meters distance from the Ocean, so can be reached within very few minutes by feet.
LionsHome is offering additional accommodations for larger groups or families directly next door. There is a large bedroom with a double bed and a bathroom on ground floor, which can be added for an extra charge of 40 %. The two properties are separate, but connected via the garage.
LionsHome is offering you airport transfer service at the cost-price of € 35 to € 40 per direction (The taxis at the airport are substantially more expensive).
LionsHome doesn’t have a swimming pool, but you won't miss it, because instead of chlorinated water you'll swim and bathe in the healthy and relaxing sea: the beach is only 250 m away and offers you smooth white sand, probably unlike anything you have seen before. The water is so warm that you could stay endless inside. On top of that, it’s very calm because the big waves are tamed by the great reef. In our part of the beach you can also swim in times of tide. You can go on endless walks along the beach not only to refresh your spirit but also to calm and cool down your body.
LionsHome takes Security serious: From time to time there are break-ins and robberies in the country; the press likes to tell negative stories about holiday paradises. However, we never had anything like that happening in since the beginning of our stay here in 1992. We want to keep it that way and that is why security is very important for us. Our Askari (night guard) has been with us for 16 years now. He guards the guests, the house and the property from dusk till dawn. Furthermore, we recently joined a mobile security group; the house is equipped with alarm buttons, if you press these buttons you activate the alarm and within 2-5 minutes there's a security group, most of the time with at least one policeman at your house.
LionsHome, in addition, is surrounded from all sides by high security walls, so you can spend quiet and undisturbed holidays.
LionsHome has its own generator: In general, there are some power cuts in Kenya but in our region it’s hardly ever a problem. If it happens unexpectedly, we can produce our own electricity with our generator.
The German-Kenyan owners live in the already mentioned neighbouring house and are always there for you. They are looking forward to meeting you! WELCOME!
Excursions and safaris: Kenya is the land of safaris! We absolutely recommend going on a safari and would like to help you with the selection and the reservation. You don't have to book them in advance, it is better to select and to book them on site. LionsHome = Beachvilla = trancility = recreation = tropical garden = dream beach = Safaris = best site!
LionsHome is a beachvilla with 2 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, terrace, balcony and a huge living room. Situated in a 700 sqm big secluded and absolutely quiet garden with exuberant tropical vegetation, where you find banana trees and coconut palms as well as lots of bushes and flowers. During the days - when no other activities were planned - you will love to spent your time in this fostered garden or on the shady terrace; everywhere you will find a nice breeze. You might let the day end romantically with a sundowner on the absolutely secluded balcony, waiting the chef to call you for dinner.
The villa is equipped with 2 bedrooms and thus offers standard accommodations for 4 people.

Your Holiday destination! Diani Beach is located about 30 km southeast of Mombasa next to the Indian Ocean. Travel guides unanimously speak of the most amazing beach: smooth white sand and calm sea thanks to the coral reef sheltering it. The fishermen will be happy to take you out to the reef, approx. 1 km away, where you can observe the great variety of fish or explore sandbanks that appear during low tide.
In the vicinity, you can find three shopping centres, two very good hospitals and countless different restaurants, bars and night clubs.
You can catch a plane at the small airport in Ukunda, about 5 km away, which will take you to one of the nature reserves or to the capital, Nairobi.
The Shimba Hills national park, visible from the vacation home, is very recommendable for one-day safaris.
Another worthwhile one-day trip is the underwater world of the Shimoni Marine national park, which can be observed from a boat. You can enjoy the Indian Ocean from an ancient Arabic Dhou often accompanied by dolphins.
The city of Mombasa with its old Arabian trading port, the Fort by the name of Jesus and its old town full of narrow, winding streets and historic sites can be explored in one or two days and is perfect for souvenir shopping.
You should schedule several days for safaris in the more distant national parks (Maasai Mara, Tsavo, Amboseli, etc.).
Golf: You can reach the golf course Leisure Lodge in 10 minutes by car.
Year Purchased: 1994
