Kenya Coast House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms for 2 to 6 people, large terrace, tropical garden, quiet

LionsHome = beachvilla = tranquilidad = recuperation = dreambeach = safaris = top site = special extras...

LionsHome is a beach villa, comprising 2 bedrooms, one bathroom, a kitchen, terrace, balcony and a large living room, situated on a secluded and very quiet property of 700 sq.m with dense tropical vegetation including banana trees and coconut palms, colourful flowers and shrubs. The villa is intended for self-catering but you can book a chef through us (or on your own) for the duration of your stay for the respective fee, who will spoil you according to your wishes. If you don't have any excursions planned, you can spend the daytime on the shady terrace or in the well-maintained garden - they all have a steady and pleasant breeze. Then you can let the day fade out while you have a sun-downer on the secluded balcony waiting for the chef to call you to dinner.

If you travel with more then 4 - 6 people, we can offer you accommodations in the neighbouring house.

LionsHome: Do not fear, no lions will be visiting you at night. The name stems from the astrological signs of the owners.

LionsHome has direct access from the main Beach Road (means it is not in the bush - a major security advantage!!!).

LionsHome is only 250 meters distance from the Ocean, so can be reached within very few minutes by feet.

LionsHome is offering additional accommodations for larger groups or families directly next door. There is a large bedroom with a double bed and a bathroom on ground floor, which can be added for an extra charge of 40 %. The two properties are separate, but connected via the garage.

LionsHome is offering you airport transfer service at the cost-price of € 35 to € 40 per direction (The taxis at the airport are substantially more expensive).

LionsHome doesn’t have a swimming pool, but you won't miss it, because instead of chlorinated water you'll swim and bathe in the healthy and relaxing sea: the beach is only 250 m away and offers you smooth white sand, probably unlike anything you have seen before. The water is so warm that you could stay endless inside. On top of that, it’s very calm because the big waves are tamed by the great reef. In our part of the beach you can also swim in times of tide. You can go on endless walks along the beach not only to refresh your spirit but also to calm and cool down your body.

LionsHome takes Security serious: From time to time there are break-ins and robberies in the country; the press likes to tell negative stories about holiday paradises. However, we never had anything like that happening in since the beginning of our stay here in 1992. We want to keep it that way and that is why security is very important for us. Our Askari (night guard) has been with us for 16 years now. He guards the guests, the house and the property from dusk till dawn. Furthermore, we recently joined a mobile security group; the house is equipped with alarm buttons, if you press these buttons you activate the alarm and within 2-5 minutes there's a security group, most of the time with at least one policeman at your house.

LionsHome, in addition, is surrounded from all sides by high security walls, so you can spend quiet and undisturbed holidays.

LionsHome has its own generator: In general, there are some power cuts in Kenya but in our region it’s hardly ever a problem. If it happens unexpectedly, we can produce our own electricity with our generator.

The German-Kenyan owners live in the already mentioned neighbouring house and are always there for you. They are looking forward to meeting you! WELCOME!

Excursions and safaris:

Kenya is the land of safaris! We absolutely recommend going on a safari and would like to help you with the selection and the reservation. You don't have to book them in advance, it is better to select and to book them on site.

LionsHome = Beachvilla = trancility = recreation = tropical garden = dream beach = Safaris = best site!

LionsHome is a beachvilla with 2 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, terrace, balcony and a huge living room. Situated in a 700 sqm big secluded and absolutely quiet garden with exuberant tropical vegetation, where you find banana trees and coconut palms as well as lots of bushes and flowers.

During the days - when no other activities were planned - you will love to spent your time in this fostered garden or on the shady terrace; everywhere you will find a nice breeze.

You might let the day end romantically with a sundowner on the absolutely secluded balcony, waiting the chef to call you for dinner.

We stayed at Villa Benita a week with our two children, the house is very nice and comfortable with everything you need.
Hans the owner a true gentleman, he was always very helpful and courteous. He often accompanied to the grocery store, one time evening, invited us to drink an aperitif on the terrace for sunset.
Do not book the Safari before; Margit a friend of Hans made us spend two unforgettable days, she does internal roads with the legendary Land Cruiser, where you can see the real Africa!
On the way back from Safari Hans and Theresa made a surprise at the guys, a swimming pool in the garden ... The child was crazy!!
Alan the cook always very clean and prepared delighted us with his dishes.
The beach is very nice and it's possible to play kitesurf ... about 300 meters from villa there is the kiteobsession school, Goodlucky is the owner, where I left my equipment.
If you want to stay out of the tourist circuit but with all the amenities .... do not hesitate.

Diani Beach private residence

  • 5 of 5
With the owner and his wife living next door to this lovely property, we felt the best of care and attention during our 3 month stay as well as the enjoyment of their company during our long stay. With the most kind and helpful houseman attending to our needs 6 days a week, we never wanted for anything.

The house is situated on an exquisite piece of property in a fully secured and guarded neighborhood. There was never a time we felt unsafe. In addition, a 7 night a week guard added to our comfort leaving us to sleep comfortably on the mosquito netted bed with excellent pillows and sheets.

Although very warm this time of year we were always able to sleep at night. Our days were spent outside on the veranda, when we weren't out and about, watching and listening to the wildlife surrounding us; monkeys, birds and bush babies at night.

The kitchen and bath are well equipped and if we needed any kitchen utensils or gadgets, the owners we quick to supply our requests.

This property is definitely intended for nature lovers and those seeking amazing scenery in the area and with the Indian Ocean nearby. There are dozens of restaurants and resorts with restaurants within a short distance where we dined 2 to 3 nights per week. The prices for dinner were ridiculously low, the food fresh and the service impeccable. There's a full sized grocery store at about 12 minutes away stocking almost anything you'd want. The prices were reasonable.

Within a 2 minute walk is a produce stand where fresh produce arrives at 12:30 each day. No chemicals or pesticides are used in the growing process which appealed to us.

Three months is a long time in one location. As world travelers, we often stay for these long periods to experience the people, the culture, the wildlife and the vegetation. We loved everything about this area.

Of course, we went on safari for a dream of a lifetime experience taking over 600 photos we'll cherish forever.

These fabulous hosts, household helpers and property will provide you with a dream holiday befitting the pickiest of travelers. Keep in mind if you are one that prefers air conditions and the utmost in conveniences, this experience may not be fitting. For us, it was ideal.

Erstmals in Kenia

  • 5 of 5
Im August verbrachten wir zusammen mit unseren zwei Kindern (Tochter 15, Sohn 18) zwei Wochen im wunderschönen Lions Home. Schon vor dem Urlaub beantworteten Hans und Teresia uns alle Fragen und waren uns Kenianeulingen in jeder Hinsicht behilflich. Wie vorher vereinbart wurden wir von einem Fahrer am Flughafen abgeholt. Innerhalb von 1 1/2 Stunden erreichten wir das bei Tag und Nacht bewachte Tor des aus sechs Häusern bestehenden, ruhig gelegenen Bougain Villas. Hans erwartete uns schon und zeigte uns den wunderschönen Garten und das sehr saubere, schön eingerichtete Haus. Er selbst wohnt mit seiner Frau direkt nebenan und bot uns sofort an, ihn bei Fragen oder Problemen immer anzusprechen. Das Haus wurde täglich vom freundlichen houseboy Hesborne aufgeräumt und gereinigt, ohne dass wir ihn wirklich wahrnahmen. Ebenso kümmerte sich der Nachtaskari Jeremias in rücksichtsvoller Art um unser Wohl. Wenn wir nicht auf Ausflügen oder am Strand waren, erholten wir uns in dem sehr gepflegten Garten, auf der großzügigen, überdachten gemütlich eingerichteten Terrasse oder dem kleinen Balkon im ersten Stock. Wir gönnten uns die gesamten zwei Wochen einen Koch. Niklas kochte jeden Abend ein wunderbares Essen und räumte anschließend die Küche auf. Wir nutzten täglich die Nähe zum weißen, weichen, von Palmen gesäumten Korallensandstrand (250m. Fußweg).
Gemüse, Obst und Wasser konnten wir in hervorragender Qualität am Stand neben dem Haus erwerben. Für die anderen Einkäufe fuhren wir mit den teilweise abenteuerlichen Matatus, deren Haltestelle direkt vor dem Haus war. So konnten wir preiswert und sicher unsere Einkäufe vom Supermarkt nach Hause bringen. Während der Fahrten erlebten wir die freundliche afrikanische Kultur und sahen immer wieder Affen am Straßenrand.
Hans und Teresia waren liebevolle Gastgeber, die uns auf rücksichtsvolle und freundliche Art anboten, an ihrem Leben teilzunehmen und uns so ein Stück wahres Kenia zeigten. Wir nahmen an dem wirklich anspruchsvollen Fitnesstraining auf der Dachterrasse teil. Pamela führte für 10 Euros pro Stunde eine phantastische Ganzkörpermassage durch und bestach durch ihre Fröhlichkeit.
Hans half uns durch seine Kontakte bei der Organisation von Safari und anderen Ausflügen. An den gemeinsamen Abenden in seinem Garten lernten wir viele interessante Menschen kennen.
Lieber Hans, liebe Teresia, wir kommen sicher wieder und können das Haus für einen gelungenen Urlaub am Diani Beach im vollen Umfang weiterempfehlen.

Urlaub pur

  • 5 of 5
Wir sind zum vierten Mal in Kenia gewesen und haben unser Traumhaus für den Urlaub gefunden. Das gesame Haus, die großzüge Terrasse und den Garten vermissen wir jetzt schon.
Alles ist in einem sehr guten Zustand. Tägliche Reinigung durch Hesborn und abendliche Unterhaltungen mit Jeremiah (okay wir haben kein Wort verstanden, er telefoniert halt laut).
Gut fanden wir auch die unkomplizierte Lösung bei auftretenden Problemen, Danke Hans Jürgen für die Zusatznacht in deinem Haus.
Elke ist immer noch begeistert von den Fitnessstunden auf der Dachterrasse und ich von der wöchentlichen Massage.
Die Lage vom Haus ist sehr gut, nicht weit vom Strand, was uns beiden wichtig war, da wir ausgiebige Strandläufer sind.
Einkaufsmöglichenkeiten sind fast fussläufig erreichbar und wenn es mal der Nakumat sein soll, gibt es Matatus oder günstige Taxen.
Wir sind sehr zufrieden mit Euch und werden uns wie abgesprochen im nächsten Jahr wiedersehen.
Danke an Alle und Jeremiah es tut uns leid, dass wir uns nicht persönlich verabschiedet haben.

Liebe Grüße Torsten und Elke

Bester Service und größte Ruhe

  • 5 of 5
Ich fuhren zu zweit nach Kenia und suchten zwecks Erholung Ruhe und Entspannung. Unsere Erwartungen wurden weit übertroffen: Bei unserer Ankunft empfingen uns die Gastgeber persönlich mit einem frischen Getränk. Auf der riesigen Terrasse des großzügig geschnittenen Hauses erwartete uns ein großer Früchtekorb. Trotz der heißen Jahreszeit war die Temperatur im Haus angenehm, sehr gut zu ertragen, die Konstruktion und die Lage des Hauses ermöglicht eine sehr gute Luftzirkulation. Eine Klimaanlage ist hier wirklich nicht von Nöten. Unser Schlafzimmer hatte ein wunderschön verziertes Bett (Lamu-Stil, wie wir erfuhren) und war groß und sehr bequem. Wir haben immer super gut geschlafen. Badezimmer und Küche waren gerade erst renoviert worden, dass konnte man sehen und es ist gut gelungen, wirklich schön die beiden Waschbecken im Badezimmer und die Granit-Arbeitsflächen in der Küche, hier haben wir gern selbst gekocht, für einige Tage hatten wir uns einen Koch besorgen lassen, der uns verwöhnt hat, das war dann ganz perfekt! Täglich wurde das Haus gereinigt, Bettwäsche und Handtücher, alles immer sauber und frisch.
Viele Stunden haben wir in dem abgeschiedenen, völlig ruhigen und schön angelegtem Garten verbracht - herrlich erholsam! Dank der zentralen Lage waren wir in wenigen Minuten am Meer: wirklich ein Traumstrand, weisser weicher Sand und warmes ruhiges Meer. Hier kann man sehr weit laufen und gut schwimmen, es gibt keine Felsen! Und der Strand ist fast menschenleer, beeindruckend und beneidenswert, wenn man das mit anderen Urlaubsorten vergleicht.
Am Tor zur Strasse bewacht immer ein Pförtner die Einfahrt und nachts war ein Askari (Nachtwächter) auf dem Grundstück.
Zum Einkaufen sind wir meist mit den Matatus (private Kleinbusse) gefahren, die kommen alle paar Minuten direkt am Tor vorbei. An Einkaufsmöglichkeiten ist auch alles vorhanden. Kleinigkeiten, besonders Obst und Gemüse, gab's gleich am Stand nebenan (30 Meter). Einige tolle Restaurants haben wir auch kennengelernt, manche holen einen sogar zum Essen ab, zu anderen sind wir dann nachts mit dem Taxi gefahren, das auch sehr billig war.
Wir können dieses Feriendomizil nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen, besonders hervorheben möchten wir
1. die Lage (zentral an der Hauptstrasse und zum Strand),
2. die Ruhe,
3. das hervorragende Personal und
4. die Aufmerksamkeit und Freundlichkeit des Vermieterpaares.

Vielen Dank für unseren geglückten Aufenthalt! Wir wollen wieder kommen!

A perfect short family holiday

  • 4 of 5
Staying at the Lions Home from 8th – 16th October 2012 was one of the most fantastic holidays we’ve ever had. We were 4 adults and 2 children and the space in the villa was more than enough for us. The compound is secure and our kids could run around with little or no supervision (if they weren’t feeding and playing with Han’s goats in the compound just behind ours). The Villa is super and the rooms are cleaned and beds made everyday, thanks to Hesbon. This is also a very tranquil location, the beach is clean and full of events and is without the beach-boy troubles common in other places.

Hans and Teresia, we would like to really thank you so much for everything. With your assistance, we spent a really good time at the Lions Home; we can’t forget the grill, the Miss South coast stuff, Leleshwa, name it! For sure we will come back again.

We recommend this place to: - Families with young & older children and to anyone who needs real peace & fun at own measures.

Cailyn, Megan, Ruth, Mary, Lydia & Willie from Hägendorf, Switzerland.

Your Holiday destination! Diani Beach is located about 30 km southeast of Mombasa next to the Indian Ocean. Travel guides unanimously speak of the most amazing beach: smooth white sand and calm sea thanks to the coral reef sheltering it. The fishermen will be happy to take you out to the reef, approx. 1 km away, where you can observe the great variety of fish or explore sandbanks that appear during low tide.

In the vicinity, you can find three shopping centres, two very good hospitals and countless different restaurants, bars and night clubs.

You can catch a plane at the small airport in Ukunda, about 5 km away, which will take you to one of the nature reserves or to the capital, Nairobi.

The Shimba Hills national park, visible from the vacation home, is very recommendable for one-day safaris.

Another worthwhile one-day trip is the underwater world of the Shimoni Marine national park, which can be observed from a boat. You can enjoy the Indian Ocean from an ancient Arabic Dhou often accompanied by dolphins.

The city of Mombasa with its old Arabian trading port, the Fort by the name of Jesus and its old town full of narrow, winding streets and historic sites can be explored in one or two days and is perfect for souvenir shopping.

You should schedule several days for safaris in the more distant national parks (Maasai Mara, Tsavo, Amboseli, etc.).

Golf: You can reach the golf course Leisure Lodge in 10 minutes by car.
