AN OASIS OF CALM SURROUNDED BY TRANQUIL GARDENS, 5 MINUTES WALK TO THE BEACH

East Kenya Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 15. 5 bedroom house. Waridi House is built in the traditional Swahili style, in the heart of Shela Village. It can sleep 10 couples and 5 children. The house has 5 bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms. There is a plunge pool and large reception rooms. The design of each room ensures privacy, yet provides breathtaking views across the countryside. It has a permanent staff, including a cook and all the food is local and fresh. The beach, which is eight miles long, is quiet, beautiful.

Waridi was designed and built as an integral part of the village yet is private and peaceful for those who stay there. You will awake every morning to a cacophony of bird song, surrounded by beautiful gardens, abundant wildlife and five minutes from the beach. The house has a full roster of staff: there is Ketana who is the waiter, artist and also in charge of maintenance, Naima the housekeeper and our resident masseuse and beautician and Crispus who is the manager of the house and a first class cook. The fishermen will pop in with fresh fish for supper and the ladies might bring in freshly cut flowers. You will be cocooned in an envelope of peace and tranquillity. The house is entirely self sufficient, the water is from a fresh water well, solar panels provide electricity and solar thermal for hot water. The beach, which is eight miles long, is quiet, breathtakingly beautiful and can be reached either by walking through Shela or scaling the famous sand dunes.
