Watamu Beach 5B


Cottage on the Watamu Marine Park and 10 km from the 500km2 Arabuko Sokoke protected reserve with butterflies, birds, monkeys, buffaloes, elephants and many other wild animals.

Located next to a hotel with water sports: diving, snorkeling, sailing, surfing.

It is cooked for you and you will be served by staff that "on-site" lives and this house is therefore in fact a small and very private hotel exclusively rented by you.

The beach is part of a maritime nature reserve. The beach is often quiet and deserted. Warm and clean sea water.

The staff (David and Hamishi) has been working for many years for us is totally reliable and always quickly gaining the hearts of our guests with their friendly and helpful attitude. They provide fully for you they cook, do the laundry, ironing, keeping the house clean and make the beds. They also do your groceries and take care of your breakfast, lunch and dinner (barbeque on the terrace, if you wish).

The host, Jos & Zanna

Micazu member since July 2012

We are Jos and Zanna Maseland, an English-Dutch couple living in Kenya for over 25 years. We bought our home in Watamu 20 years ago and never regretted this decision. Over the past 15 years EVERY tenant came back for a further stay. Our home in Watamu is our own winter residence wanner we are retired.

Additional information

A hotel next to the house offers activities: snorkeling, sailing, surfing, diving. Private entrepreneurs in Watamu can arrange boat trips to sea or Mida Creek (protected area), bird-spotting walks in the protected Arabuko Sokoke forest, swimming with dolphins or snorkeling. The nearby village of Watamu offers a variety of restaurants and discos. Trips to Tsavo National Park can also be arranged (elephants, giraffes, buffaloes, lions etc).
For visitors from Europe, it is common to fly the Kenyan capital Nairobi and then take a domestic flight to the coast (Mombasa or Malindi). If desired, our regular taxi driver (Alex) can meet you. From Mombasa it is about a 2 hr drive (+ /-Euro 70) and from Malindi half an hour (+ / - € 25).
