Kiboko Nyumba is a 700m² villa on 3 floors located in a 1 acre plot set back 100 metres from Turtle Bay Road. Great for family holidays, parties or group gatherings, it is an ideal place to spend your holiday being pampered by our wonderful staff away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. The ceiling fans in every room along with the makuti roof and open grill windows mean that you can benefit from the cooling coastal breezes without the need for power-hungry air conditioning units. There is ample space for entertaining in the open plan lounge, the relaxing top terrace, the large verandah or around the pool.
The vast 14m x 12m living space is open plan with a lounge area that includes 3 large sofas and a 50 inch tv. This comes with a dvd player and dstv satellite which can be upgraded for the duration of your holiday to include the sports channels at an extra cost.
Free WiFi is available throughout the house.
The dining section has a table which seats 10 and a bar with refrigerator and water cooler.
The verandah has cushioned seating on one side and another 10 seater dining table for al fresco eating. The ground floor also has a large fully equipped kitchen, a laundry room and a store room as well as a shower and toilet.
The wide staircase opens onto a covered balcony overlooking the pool and garden. Leading from this are two of the bedrooms. The first is 8m x 4m and has 2 hand carved double beds. Between the built in wardrobes there is an entrance into the en-suite shower room. The second benefits from having open grill work across the doorway ensuring the room remains cool even on the hottest days of your holiday. Further along the landing there is a third room with an en-suite shower room and includes free standing furniture.
The spiral staircase takes you from the first floor landing up to the makuti covered roof terrace. This impressive open space of 12m x 8m has plenty of seating and a second bar with refrigerator and water cooler. Decorated in the Swahili style with locally made furniture and an antique persian rug this is the ideal place for relaxing with a drink or two to watch the sun go down. Leading from this is the master bedroom suite. This 6m x 8m room is furnished with a 2.2m bed and more hand made furniture. The dressing room is 4m x 4m and is again furnished by local craftsmen. The large en-suite has twin Italian designer sinks and a walk in shower.
All of the bedrooms have louvred shutters to the windows and floor to ceiling mosquito nets around the beds. The staff will prepare your rooms each night before you retire.
The 1 acre garden is enclosed by a 2 metre high wall covered with bourgainvillea and topped with an alarmed, electric fence. Inside there are a variety of tropical plants and fruit trees including paw paw, bananas and coconuts. The 8m x 10m swimming pool which extends to a depth of 2.3 metres is surrounded by galana patio with sun loungers. Behind the pool we have a grass court ideal for playing badminton. Equipment is available from the staff. At the far end of the verandah there is a professional table tennis table and a darts board. Discretely situated at the end of the grounds is a 3 bedroom staff house ensuring availability of assistance if needed during your holiday.

During your stay our staff will be on hand to make your holiday as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.

We currently reside in England so Hammer, our house manager, will be happy to help with any questions that may arise during your stay.

Kiboko Nyumba is located just off Turtle Bay Road which links Watamu Village and Temple Point and is situated among small shambas (farms). Goats and cows are regular visitors to the path at the side of the villa meaning guests are immediately immersed into local Kenyan life, however a very short drive by car or Tuk Tuk takes you straight to the the heart of the village. The beach access road is just a few minutes walk from house and within 10 minutes you can be stepping onto the glistening white sand of Watamu Beach. Watamu is a small coastal village situated a 20 minute drive from the town of Malindi. There are 2 small supermarkets and 3 banks as well as a miriad of local stalls and boutiques on the edge of the original fishing village. Visitors can browse the many stalls that line the road where you can find local craftsmen making souvenirs, clothing and art work.

There are a wide range of bars and restaurants in the area to suit all tastes. Some of our favourites are Pilipan (a great place for enjoying amazing seafood with an asian twist), Ocean Sports (we love the beach location at lunch time, no better way to enjoy the amazing coastal scenery) and Amandina at Medina Palms (perfect for a special occasion while on holiday).
Malindi airport is just a 20 minute taxi ride from the house and the international airport of Mombasa is 2 hours by car. The local method of transport is by Tuk Tuk, a small motorised taxi which is both cheap (around £2 per trip) and convienient. Small minibuses, matatus run regularly to Malindi and Mombasa and cost next to nothing. Private car taxis are also readily available and very reasonable.

Rama, our experienced cook, will be happy to prepare a wide variety of dishes as well as classic Swahili foods.
Shopping while on holiday in Watamu is easy and enjoyable. For groceries and supplies you can either pop into the village in a tuk-tuk, order by phone and have it delivered or you can ask Hammer to shop for you. If you would like us to get any provisions in for when you arrive please let us know and we will arrange it.
Local fishermen will come to the house with their daily catch including king prawns, lobster and local fish, weather permitting. All towels and linens including pool towels are supplied. Bedding is changed weekly unless requested. Our staff will be happy to do guest's laundry daily. It will be returned to you beautifully ironed either folded or on hangers.
The house is supplied with 3 phase power but in case of an outage we also have an automatic diesel generator. All of the hot water is heated using solar panels seated above the 40,000 litre cold water storage tank ensuring a constant supply.

As well as 24 hour G4S cover we are also members of Watamu Against Crime (WAC) a local community group which has funded 4 surveillance cars that patrol the area making Watamu one of the safest areas in Kenya. The local community have also funded a fully equipped Red Cross ambulance to be stationed in the village so that in the case of an emergency speedy transport to hospital is available.
