The SpaceThe house is situated on one of the most picturesque stretches of Watamu beach, ideally located right opposite the Coral Gardens of the Marine Park. There are no large hotels nearby, only private residences. Built high in the trees, its unique architecture affords a 360 degree panorama of the Indian Ocean coastline on one side and native forest on the other. Whether you prefer to take the house on a self-catering or full-board basis, you will be well taken care of by the friendly, professional and experienced cook and domestic staff. Watamu Treehouse has seven double bedrooms. There are also a number of other beds and sleeping areas, such as those on the rooftop under the stars and the beach-deck down on the shore. The house is designed to sleep 14 people, but can comfortably accommodate more (Note the price is given is indicative of 2 persons full board, and your price will depend on number of persons and the meal plan selected). There is everything you need here for a wonderful holiday. Just bring yourselves and your toys. You can bring your own food for the cook to prepare, but if you choose not to, no problem. Daily deliveries of fresh seafood and produce, and anything from the local supermarket can be arranged. The kitchen is equipped with fridge, cooker, oven, deep-freeze, plus a good range of utensils and cookware. As this is also a family home, you will find high quality crockery, cutlery and glassware in the cupboards, as well as fine bedlinen, mosquito-netting and towels. Note: Please bring your own bathroom consumables, as they are not provided with the house rental. he house consists of three towers in the trees, linked by bridges, stairways and ramps. Most of the building was deliberately set above the beautiful coastal forest - for the stunning views and the cooling breeze, and also to avoid unnecessary damage to the natural environment. The house has no windows - just frames around vistas of nature in all its glory. You share the forest with the birds, insects, small mammals, reptiles and primates. The forest boasts many indigenous trees common to the coastal strip, including beautiful baobabs and many examples of the remarkable bamba-kofi. Both living and sleeping areas are situated just above the forest canopy, open to the cooling coastal breezes and the scintillating views. You sleep breathing the fresh air of the forest and awaken to the early morning calls of the wildlife - especially birds and sykes monkeys! The views from the house are stunning. Unusually for the East Coast of Africa, Watamu Treehouse offers a complete 360 degree horizon, affording sensational views of sunsets over forests, coconut plantations and Mida Creek, as well as sunrises and moonrises over the Indian Ocean... You have a choice of several verandas and a sublime rooftop space, all designed to accommodate both communal activities and private retreats from which to contemplate the beauty of the surroundings. Please note that the house is built high off the ground. If a fear of heights, climbing up flights of stairs, would spoil your holiday, then this might not be the best house for you. It should also be reconsidered should any member of your party be prone to losing their balance after a particularly long and well-lubricated night! Getting AroundYou do not need your own transport. You can walk, SUP or kayak most places. And when needed we can order you a taxi, motorbike or tuktuk for transport

    The SpaceNote - the map isn't accurate, this house is on the water and you should check the reviews :) This price is for the whole four-bedroom (sleeps 12), luxurious house with 3 permanent staff (cook, cleaner etc) set in tropical gardens with coconuts, cashews and mango trees, overlooking Mida Creek (a tropical lagoon), minutes drive from one of the best beaches in Kenya. This is a magical house in one of the nicest, most peaceful spots on the coast. It has just been listed, which is why it is currently much cheaper than the other houses in the region. The house is the culmination of a lifelong dream - to build a tropical, sustainable, paradisiacal retreat in this part of the world. At night, you won't see a single other artificial light as you drift off to sleep. The house overlooks the waters of Mida Creek – a huge, stunning mangrove-fronted lagoon where you can swim, watch local fisherfolk, take dugout canoe trips (the house has its own), watch ospreys, flamingos, hawks and other wildlife, go fishing, or just listen to the sounds of the local people who have been living in the same way for thousands of years. There's nowhere else quite like it. The house is set in a 5.2 acre fenced plot filled with cashew nut trees and a number of other smaller trees we've planted. The plot is nestled among local villages, palms and lush vegetation. It feels like it is in the bush (that’s a good thing!), although it is only a 10-minute drive from half a dozen excellent, lively restaurants and bars in Watamu, a 25-minute drive from Malindi airport and a 2-hour drive from bustling Mombasa. We can arrange for you to hire a car if needed. The staff members who look after the house full-time are Joseph – an excellent cook who has been preparing food for foreign visitors for more than 30 years - Morris, the cleaner, caretaker and gardener, and David who's on hand at night. There is no extra cost for these guys, although they appreciate a tip. Joseph can cook a huge number of different types of food from vegetarian pies to meat and super-fresh seafood feasts, as well as baking his own bread. He is happy to go and do the shopping for you, if that's easier. Morris will help you with anything you need, from cleaning to babysitting to fetching coconuts from the trees for you for a midday cocktail. The house consists of a large open building, which has two large bedrooms - the upstairs room (bedroom 3) has 2 double beds (one perched in the roof and one kingsize), and the downstairs room (bedroom 4), which is completely netted can be used either as a chill-out room or a bedroom with 2 double beds (see photos). In the remainder of this bit of the house there is a large living area and dining table in which to chill and relax - with fitted sofas, a hanging chair, and hammock - in addition to a kitchen, storeroom and a toilet / shower. Right next to the main building there is a 10-meter high 'tower' building with a funky spiral staircase that consists of an open chill-out area downstairs and two bedrooms (bedroo(URL HIDDEN)both king-sized double beds and ensuite bathrooms) with amazing views the higher you go, and a flat roof, with a panoramic view over the whole creek and to the horizon beyond, which is a perfect place for sunbathing, yoga, beers or evening dinner. The sun sets on the other side of the creek in the evening - this is unique to this house as most of the other houses in the region have eastward views. We've taken pains to try to reduce the impact on the local environment with the house. That doesn't mean it's not effortlessly luxurious – it is, but we are not fans of air-conditioning and swimming pools. All rooms have excellent ventilation and fans, if needed. For us, taking a sunset dip in the creek in the evening as the sun goes down is way better than chlorine and pumps. The beach is a 10-minute drive away and you can also swim in front of the house around high tide (2x per day). Watamu is famous for its 7-km long white sand beach and pristine turquoise ocean that caters for world-class kitesurfing, diving, fishing, sailing, kayaking, waterskiing and more. In the town there are many excellent restaurants and bars, and even more in nearby Malindi. Other local adventures include the Gede ruins, the Arabuko-Sokoke forest, cycling, Tsavo national park (2-hour drive and one of the best game parks in Kenya), bird walks, surfing, the ice-cream shop and much, much more. There is also internet and mobile access at the house if you buy a dongle locally. We've also left a Bose stereo for ipods/iphones and computers and all linen and towels as well as cleaning etc is included. There is also a karum board, backgammon, some DVDs if you have a computer/player and a number of books. Quite simply, it's one of the most relaxed and peaceful places on earth. Enjoy! Guest AccessGuests will enjoy the house to themselves. Interaction with GuestsThe prices is for the entire house, inclusive of staff (cleaner and cook). Getting AroundIt's easy to get around - you can either rent a car, get a taxi, a tuk tuk or jump on the back of a motorbike taxi

      This house is a culmination of a lifelong dream to build a wonderful retreat in the tropics (think Swiss Family Robinson!). Perched on the edge of an amazing lagoon, overlooking Mida Creek (with sunset views - a rarity on this coast), the house is a peaceful oasis, snug between coconut trees, set in a 5.2 acre garden and comes complete with 3 staff members. It's a place to escape from it all - simply chill, watch the birds and experience the calm wonder of Africa at its finest (whilst also having 3G connection, if you need it). At night you can sit and watch the sunset slip beneath the horizon without a single other artificial light on a 180 degree vista. The house has 4 bedroom, but sleeps 12 at a push - two bedrooms are in a 'tower' with amazing views, and 2 in the main house. Do let us know if you've any questions - you'll love it... as everyone else does! Watamu is close to Malindi, the Gede Ruins, the Arabo Sokoke forest and many other wonderful spots.

                                  Acacia Cottage is a lovely three bedroom cottage with swimming pool set in an acre of lush gardens, only a few minutes walk from the white sandy beach of Watamu Marine Park. Each of the three bedrooms has a double bed, overhead fan and mosquito net and is air-conditioned. The master bedroom has it's own ensuite bathroom, and the second and third bedroom share a bathroom. The living area is strewn with inviting sofas and it links through to the dining room which can comfortably seat 8 guests. The kitchen is small but well equipped, with a hatch opening out into the living area. From the house into the garden, a covered terrace houses a further dining table, ideal for breakfast whilst watching the children splash about in the pool, and two further comfortable sofas. The pool itself is freeform, with yet another comfortable seating area alongside, as well as sunbeds for relaxing the day away. The house is staffed with two housekeepers and a cook who have looked after the house for many years and love to welcome guests. Watamu is one of the top 10 beaches in the world. Located approximately 100km North of Mombasa, the waters are a protected Marine Park allowing spectacular opportunities for snorkelling and scuba-diving, with lovely corals and blizzards of colourful fish. The pristine white sands along Turtle Bay Beach are a haven for nesting Turtles, and every now and again you have the privilege to see the little rubbery turtle hatchlings make their first mad bid for the ocean. Watamu is a special place for all water sports, from Deep-Sea Fishing to Kite-Surfing and Kayaking. Close by is the protected Mida Creek and it's fabulous array of birdlife and mangrove forests - a trip to Watamu is not complete without a dhow trip to watch the spectacular sun-sets over Mida.
