About the Property

4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and panorama 360° roundview with jungle and sea views

Villa Kapungu consists of the main house, a guest house, a private pool (12m x 6m = 40ft x 20ft), a 2000m2 (21500ft2) private garden, a roofed carport for two cars and a storing place.

The estate is located in the heart of Diani Beach (which is regarded as one of the most beautiful palm beaches in the world) within the gated community 'Msitu Kwetu' (Swahili: jungle dream); only 240m (787ft) from the beach and offers absolute privacy in it's 2000m2 (21500ft2) tropical garden.

The Villa Kapungu main house has a living area of 300m2 (3230ft2) spread across three levels with an exclusive panorama platform on top with a breathtaking 360 degree roundview. From here you can enjoy the sunrise over the coral reef of the Indian ocean in the east and the sunset over the shimba hills in the west. Different species of monkeys (the rare and special Colobus among them) in the bordering bushland can also be easily observed here.

Aside from the extraordinary views from the platform, the main house also provides a living area with a gallery, balcony, terrace and a kitchen. On the ground floor and in the guest house are a total of four spacious bedrooms with four exclusive ensuite-bathrooms. The entire estate is equipped with top-quality, african-'lamu'-styled furniture combined with European luxury.

A trained chef, housemaid and gardener (who is also responsible for the daily cleaning of the swimming pool) will look after your wellbeing during your stay. On the day of your arrival the chef will discuss with you your preferences regarding meals and shopping. If desired, fresh seafood can be delivered daily to the premises by the fisher.

A masseur or personal trainer can be requested if required. Taxis can be called at any time and there are also car rental opportunities.
