KENYAN FAMILY VILLA WITH BEAUTIFUL POOL, PRIVATE BEACH ACCESS, STUNNING VIEWS.

Kenya Coast Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 double bedrooms, with en-suite bathrooms

Welcome to Himaya House. Situated on a coral buff overlooking Silversands Beach, Malindi, the views are stunning. There are two magnificent Baobab trees which give a very special feeling to the property. There is a short path down to the beach - only accessed through a carved wooden door - giving you complete privacy and exclusivity.

The house is spacious and cool with a north or south monsoon blowing most of the year. The main house has a large living area plus veranda with the Master Bedroom up above.

All rooms have a spectacular view. Two of the bedrooms are in a separate unit with steps down to the swimming pool.

The Master bedroom is up above the main living area and has its own entrance.

The Kenya coast has a North and South Monsoon.

The winds blow from the North from around end of November through to April/May and then change to the South.

This obviously brings changes on the beach,

In the North Monsoon the sea weed is blown down towards the house and there for the beach is not a complete stretch of white sand.

There are always areas that are clear and where you can swim.

It is absolutely not a problem but I would like you to know the photographs are taken in the South Monsoon.

Wonderful Place - a piece of paradise!

We have been to Himaya with the family several times - and always come back. It is indeed a very special place with beautiful rooms, stunning views, lovely staff and great food. For a relaxing holiday it s a perfect place - a nice and well maintained pool and a direct acess to the beach - but still having privacy, as the house is located on a cliff. The chef is preparing amazing local and international dishes and all the staff are very firendly - the service is really outstanding! The contact with the manager is always good and fast in response.
If you are looking for a very spiecial place for your holiday at the coast - this is it!

Amazing vacation!

We had an amazing time at the Himaya house in early November. The house is located above the beach and has a beautiful view from all the bedrooms and from the terrace where we had all our meals. A few steps down and we could enter the beach through our own private door. Our teenagers loved to play in the pool. We were very well looked after by the staff and Sammy the chef prepared delicious meals for us. We had fresh fish, meat and also some more local dishes. Lissa, the owner, arranged for all our transfers, both to and from the airport in Mombasa (2,5 hours) and to and from the local airport in Malindi when we went on our safari. It was easy to get into town by just grabbing a tuk-tuk in the local road behind the garden. We went into town for shopping and sightseeing, but enjoyed most of our meals at the house. My daughter and I went horse-back riding on the beach just north of town a couple of times and we also did some scuba-diving (at one dive center in Malindi and at another one in Watamu). I could not have celebrated my big birthday in a better place! We would love to return!

Truly AMAZING holiday right on the beach.

We (family of 4)stayed for 5 days in this beautiful colonial villa right on the beach,in all privacy due to its elevated location.Arriving after a 3 day safari this proved to be the perfect place to relax,calm down and enjoy the Kenian coast in true luxury.The villa is absolutely fantastic,it has a very spacious feeling due to its big well maintained and beautiful garden(has 2 Baobabs), large swimming pool (kept very clean by the staff) and very spacious bedrooms,living room and dining area/veranda.The views from the garden/pool and from the house on the Indian ocean are stunning.The white and very soft beach is easily accessible from the house via a private entrance,and the sea is perfect for kids to swim in as it is only up to a meter deep for the first 100m.There is an outside shower just as you enter the property on the way back from the beach to wash of the sand and salt.The house is kept very clean at all times by the excellent staff whose presence was never disturbing almost unnoticeable.We never went out eating since Sammy's (the chef) cooking was excellent and had great variety on offer.The staff also took care of booking taxi's,boat to go snorkelling (pick up on the beach just below the house) and any groceries needed.We did a few short trips to Malindi centre which is 10mins with a Tuktuk,to buy some souvenirs,and visited the Gedi ruins which we found quite interesting.There are a few info folders in the villa made by the owner which provide you with all possible information on the neighborhood and on activities that can be planned from here.Do contact the owner if you have any questions about the villa or your booking,she is extremely helpful and friendly.
This villa gave all of us a WAAW feeling every minute of our stay!Its just an unbelievable FANTASTIC place,run by truly friendly people.Thank you Lissa for renting out this wonderful place and thank you to your staff for the 5 star service.We hope to be back soon!

Absolutely fantastic!!

Absolutely fantastic!! After staying more than 5 years in Kenya, Himaya House is one of the best beach houses we have ever visited.
What a view, the location is beautiful, on top of a cliff, direct access to the wonderful beach and close to all the attractions in Watamu/Malindi area.

The house is cozy, clean and welcoming! Staff is absolutely amazing and the idea of having a 2 page menu where you can put together breakfast, lunch and dinner works excellent.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay and big thanks to staff and Lissa for making our holiday so wonderful. We will be back!!

In March of 2011 we (6 friends and I) had the absolute pleasure of spending 5 nights at Himaya House.

The entire experience - from our initial inquiries with Lissa via email, to her gracious facilitation with travel arrangements, to the reception by her well trained staff, to the food, to the service, to the house itself - we can't say enough good things about our experience at Himaya House.

The grounds and facilities were stunning. The staff was warm, welcoming, and professional. The food prepared by Sammy (the chef) was world class. The views of the Indian Ocean were breathtaking. The combination of having a private pool and steps to the beach was phenomenal. We literally couldn't have asked for more.

It was a much needed Holiday and we're already preparing to book another trip for 2012.
