About the Property

Cook, maid, gardener, pool, 350m from the beach, 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, luxury

The villa, 300 sq.m in size, boasts a lovely pool, while both the villa and guesthouse have been recently constructed and are situated less than 300 m from the white-sand beach on the Indian Ocean, Diani Beach. They are also 35 km from the wildlife preserve in the Shimba Hills. This is an exclusive, gated, private estate, which will only be rented to a single person, a couple, a group, or a family. The property is a tropical dream come true, surrounded by colourful bougainvillea. Bananas, papayas, and coconuts are just some of the trees growing in the garden with its singing birds. Everything is wonderfully equipped in an African artistic style that is paired with European luxury. Every bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. On the upper floor, there is an oversized living area (100 sq.m) with two balconies and a gallery that is open to the sky. There is a large terrace on the lower floor that enjoys a view of the garden and pool. All bedrooms have ceiling fans, mosquito nets, and a safe. ***Property with great swimming pool, Garden of Eden property, property with the terrace of your dreams***
Diving in Kenya: On Galu Beach with its fine, white sand, you can do more than just relax, you can also go snorkelling or scuba diving to explore the underwater world of the Indian Ocean. There are several lovely places where you can observe every imaginable species of corals and fishes in colours you've only imagined until now. Dive into the wonderful underwater world, it's unbelievably beautiful. Fantastic diving spots, large fishes (whale sharks seen almost daily), numerous schools of fish, intact coral reefs with beautiful coral, shipwrecks, tropical water temperatures year-round and, of course, gorgeous international diving stations. For example: At Diani Marine, there's a professional crew with first-class Mares gear. From beginner courses to diving instructor training, everything is offered. Open-sea fishing in Kenya: Off of Diani Beach, there's one of the best deep-sea fisheries in the world: Marlin (blue, striped and black), sailfish, sharks, wahoos, swordfish, barracuda, kingfish, tuna, and many more species of fish. Kenya is, without a doubt, a paradise for open-sea fishing. The fisheries on Pemba Channel or Watamu have become world-famous. Even Hemingway was inspired by Malandi to write his book 'The Old Man and the Sea'. Boat rentals are exceptionally cheap in comparison to other destinations like the Caribbean or Mauritius. Safari in Kenya, 'The Cradle of Humanity': In Kenya there are more than 50 national parks and reserves that are different both in terms of landscape and animal species. The species richness of their animals and plants has made Kenya famous around the world. Even though all the parks are different, they also have something in common: they're all unique and they all offer something special. All the different habitats are present, from the jungle and mountains to the marine protected areas of the Indian Ocean. Safaris, though, don't mean that you have to compromise on comfort! Most of the lodges and tent camps are luxury establishments where you will want for nothing. We're happy to advise you as needed. Last, but not least: Diani Beach is one of the top 5 kite-surfing spots in the world. The best season for wind is from December to March, with a somewhat lower season from June to September. Yours, Bernd Trompell

Diani Beach

Car: Recommended

Diani Beach, one of the world's last true paradises, is located in Mombasa and has one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It's located on the southern coast of Kenya, known as the "Switzerland of Africa". It's well known as the most ideal vacationing spot in Kenya. The white-sand beach is immaculate and flawless and boasts a coral reef just offshore. It's never crowded and is always clean. Only about 15 hotels are located along Diani Beach, meaning that holidaymakers will have a peaceful holiday. You'll find an undisturbed natural setting in the shadows of the wild animal refuge of Shimba Hills, which is home to almost all the main species of African wildlife. The infrastructure is also especially good. Even so, you'll find a taste of real Africa nearby, as you explore excellent restaurants, shopping centres, doctors, a hospital that is up to German standards, banks, car and motorcycle rental, gas stations, open-water fishing, golf, riding, country landing strips for small aircraft, safari trips, and - if you're into that kind of thing - discos and nightclubs (out of sight and hearing distance of the villa) Other activities: Kite-surfing, sky diving, jet-skiing, open-water angling, riding, safaris, reef tours, sailing, etc. Golf: Kenya is emerging as a real insider's secret for golfers. On the coast and in Kenya's highlands, promising golf clubs have been springing up in recent years. Most offer courses for beginners and experienced golfers. There are 38 golf courses in total, most of which are highly attractive thanks to their views of the sea or the snow-capped peak of Mount Kenya. There are gorgeous areas, one of which is right on Diani Beach, a 10-minute drive from our property. The 'Leisure Lodge and Country Club' is the only golf club on the southern coast, and also the newest course in Kenya. The 18-hole course has two large water traps, which affect five holes including the 485-metre-long 18th hole twice. The course is a real challenge even for high-level players. Diani Beach is one of the top 5 kite-surfing spots in the world. The best season for wind is from December to March, with a somewhat lower season from June to September. Yours, Bernd Trompell
