Property description

This unique beach house, which sleeps up to 10 people, is situated at the beginning of a 16 kms white sand beach ending at Watamu. We can accommodate a further 2 beds in the master suite if requested.

The three-floor beach house is located on a private ten-acre walled estate, which fronts this isolated beach and beautiful turquoise blue inner reef at Leopard Point, just outside Mayungu. The beach is protected by a reef from the Indian Ocean and is perfect snorkelling and wind surfing territory.

The house has an internal phone system that is in every room throughout the house and staff quarters. The house has 5 permanent staff including a Housekeeper, Houseboy, Gardener and 2 Askari, whom provide 24 hour security 7 days a week.


The house has every modern amenity including mobile key internet connection, direct dial telephones, TV with DSTV satellite service. This comes with a full package of foreign language stations, news, sports and movie channels. We have DVD and a DVD collection, an iPod music system as well as a CD driven system.

Malindi and Watamu are rightly world famous for their deep-sea fishing and scuba diving, they should be known for their wind and kite surfing as well.

The Beach House is situated on the edge of the national marine park, which includes the locally famous “Sardinia Due” sandbanks where a boat picnic is a good way to spend part of the day.

Swimming with dolphins and the occasional whale shark is a short boat ride away. Whether, you’d like a luxury spa, a wild life safari, an alternative culture tour, a relaxing massage, a deep sea fishing trip, a celebration party, boat charter, wind and kite surfing, snorkelling, everything is possible, and we will help you organize it.

The house is two hours from East Tsavo, a national game reserve, or just twenty minutes from the local bird and butterfly sanctuary. The Gede Ruins and Mida Creek are 30 minutes away. There are day trips available to Che Shale and the Sabaki River, Robinson Island and Wasini Island are is just twenty minutes by chartered aircraft from Malindi Airport.

The Beach House comes with an excellent housekeeper, Rehema. She will organise your shopping trips to town and act as your guide with advice on where to go..She will do all your laundry on request. She is an occasional cook and does a mean spaghetti ragu! Ali, the houseboy is there to help you in any way possible. He is your butler, waiter, grill man and gofor.Ask Ali the evening before if you want fresh fish or lobster the following day, and he will tell the fishermen. John is in charge of the gardens, should you want a particular flower in your room or at dinner, just ask Rehema and John will pick them for you. We have 2 Askari providing around the clock security, they are backed up by Don and Gone the house dogs. The dogs are house dogs not guard dogs and are safe with children and adults. They are more an alarm system as you will find out.

The property is sweep and the beds made everyday. Should you require fresh sheets or towels ask Rehema.

Additional staff such as a cook, waiters, or drivers, can all be provide on request. The Beach House is on mains electric, but with it’s own standby electrical generator, plus a dedicated laundry room and servants quarters. We have ample freezer space if required.

The property has a 4x4, which is available to rent for an additional 50 Euro per day including a driver (Ali), just return it with a full tank.

Alternatively, self drive cars and 4x4's are available for hire in Malindi Town. You will need transport while staying at The Beach House.

There is a 9 hole Golf Course in Malindi, approx 15 km from the Beach House.

Car: Recommended

The seas between Malindi and Watamu are world famous for their deep-sea fishing and scuba diving; they should also be famous for the wind and kite surfing.

The Beach House is situated on Leopard Point on the edge of the national marine park. The locally famous “Sardinia Due” sandbanks which appear for low tide, are less than 1,500 meters away. They are an excellent spot for a boating picnic, which we can organise for you. Swimming with dolphins and the occasional whale shark is a short boat ride away.

In addition to this you are two hours from Tsavo East, a wonderful national game reserve, or just twenty minutes from the local bird and butterfly sanctuary. The Gede Ruins and Mida Creek are also short drives away.

There are day trips available to Che Shale and Sabaki River and Robinson and Wasini Islands are just twenty minutes by scheduled airline from Malindi Airport.

We can help with trips away from the house and can recommend reliable operators of both transport and lodges.

The Beach House is the only house actually on the beach for several hundred miles in any direction, at high tide you can swim from the ground floor terrace.
