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).

    We hebben heerlijke dagen gehad in het huis van de familie Maseland. De ligging is mooi en het huis is ruim en comfortabel.
