ok for relaxing away from touristic areas

  • 2 of 5

The good:

Very quiet location, perfect to get a bit off the beaten path and away from the busy Diani Beach area. The house is fairly well taken care of overall. If you are looking for a quiet, fairly remote location to relax for a few days, it’s probably a good fit. Probably best to go there without children.

The not so good:

The kitchen was not well equipped and it lacked a coffee machine. Utensils, pots and pans were not sufficient. There are no shops around, bring anything you think you will need as you can’t even buy milk there, just a few vegetables.

The house workers were always there starring at you the whole day. They would be in the house, in the kitchen cooking their own food in your kitchen, listening to their music in your house. We felt like we could not relax and as if we constantly lived with other people. They kept their food in the kitchen and fridge, so we always felt a bit uncomfortable not being sure how many tomatoes were ours and felt like we had to ask every time our kids wanted to grab a fruit or carrot. Sometimes I am pretty sure they were helping themselves with our rice or other groceries. It was just a bit unpleasant not to feel at home but to have invading roommates.

Outside furniture was insufficient, if you look at the pictures in detail, you will notice they actually moved the furniture from the balcony to the terrace because they don’t have two sets of furniture. If the furniture is on the balcony and you want to sit on the terrace, you have to move everything down yourself one floor if you want to have somewhere to sit. The staff however somehow have their own views of where things should go and move everything back when you are not looking, so you start all over the next day.

The ceiling was not finished in one of the rooms, and you were starring at the roof. This would not have been a problem if the custom made mosquito nets had been adequate. Instead they did not fit the beds and we did not sleep for a week as we were just devoured. We tried to buy our own nets, but with beds with wooden pillars it’s not so easy to install commercial nets.

You cannot swim there as the beach is rocky.

The really cheap:

The staff only informed us there was hot water on the last day, not sure if it was to save on electricity or just laziness. The pool was not cleaned and turned green after a couple of days. There is a pool table, but you have to pay extra to play. It felt a bit like a rip off, with staff trying to save/make money

Traumvilla in perfekter Lage

  • 5 of 5

Mein Gesamturteil für meinen 16tägigen Aufenthalt in der Villa Chui kann schlichtweg nur sehr positiv (oder in Schulnoten: mit einer 1 bewertet) ausfallen. Das Urteil beruht auf vielen Faktoren, wovon ich besonders das Haus selbst sowie die sehr angenehme Atmosphäre betonen möchte.

Die Grundausstattung der Villa steht einem guten Hotel in nichts nach und was besonders schön ist, ist die Tatsache, dass man an sehr vielen Kleinigkeiten sieht, dass die Planung und Durchführung des Baus der Villa mit viel Feingefühl ausgeführt wurde. So stellt man bei den Liegen am Pool seine Bücher, Drinks, oder Ähnliches nicht auf einen Plastiktisch, sondern auf geschnitzten Baumstumpf. Auch spielt man nicht mit einfachen Schachfiguren, sondern mit steinernen Tieren… Gerade bei derartigen Details wird klar, dass sich jemand viel Gedanken gemacht hat, um den Ansprüchen seiner Gäste gerecht zu werden. Dann noch zur Lage: Ich bin bisher noch auf keinem Balkon gesessen, der mir auch nur eine halbwegs vergleichbare Aussicht gewährt hat: Blick auf das Meer und den Sandstrand mit wehenden Palmen – vor diesem Hintergrund haben Tätigkeiten wie ein Buch lesen, in sich kehren oder ein Bierchen trinken, gleich eine vollkommen andere Bedeutung. Zu Recht habe ich das Foto, was ich von diesem Balkon aus gemacht habe, seitdem als Handy-Hintergrundbild eingerichtet.

Weiterhin unheimlich angenehm fand ich die Herzlichkeit der Angestellten, die sich mir gegenüber so verhalten haben, als würde ich zur Familie gehören. Jedoch waren nicht nur die hauseigenen Angestellten sehr hilfsbereit und nett, sondern auch die Dorfbewohner. Dort hat jeder ein Jambo übrig und man fühlt sich nicht als weißer Mann, der unwillkommen und fremd ist, sondern man wird als Mensch respektiert. Dies merkt man an vielen Ecken und Enden, sei es bei den netten Gesprächen an den Shops, bei denen man Zigaretten, Gemüse und Co kauft, oder sei es bei den Erzählungen der altruistischen Hilfsgemeinschaftsmitarbeiter, mit denen ich gesprochen habe.

Der Urlaub wird mir auf jeden Fall noch lange in meinem Gedächtnis bleiben und von den schönen Erfahrungen, die ich dort gemacht habe, werde ich noch lange zehren können. Und ich sage mal so: Demjenigen, dem es dort nicht gefällt, möchte ich nur mein Beileid aussprechen, da er für die schönen Plätze der Welt wohl blind zu sein scheint. Ich hoffe, dass meine Zeilen ein wenig von den tollen Erlebnissen widerspiegeln kann.

Schöne Villa an der kenianischen Küste

  • 5 of 5

Letzten Oktober habe ich zehn Tage in der Villa Chui in Msambweni verbracht. Das Haus an sich ist geräumig, sehr sauber und wunderschön gelegen. Vor allem der Meeresblick vom Balkon aus ist (v.a. zu sehr frühen/sehr späten Stunden) unvergesslich. Am besten gefallen hat mir die Tatsache, dass das Haus in einem kleinen Dorf liegt, also fernab von dem doch sehr touristischen Diani. Wenn man trotzdem Lust auf "mehr Menschen" hat, kann man ohne Probleme günstig per Taxi (die Angestellten in der Villa können einem einen guten und sicheren Taxifahrer empfehlen) oder für die etwas abenteuerlustigeren mit dem sehr überfüllten Matatu fahren, was wirklich ein Erlebnis ist.

Der Koch und die Haushälterin sind beide sehr freundlich und helfen einem bei allem, was man braucht (sogar privat-suaheli-Stunden:). So war ich zum Beispiel mit der Haushälterin Obst und Stoffe im Dorf kaufen, was ein sehr schönes Erlebnis war. Auch das Essen, das der Koch zubereitet, kann man sich selbst aussuchen und es schmeckt zudem sehr gut. Sehr zu empfehlen ist auch, traditionell kenianische Speisen auszuprobieren!

Dass der Strand etwas steinig ist, stimmt. Jedoch ist dafür weit und breit kein einziger Tourist zu sehen, man sieht höchstens mal einen Kenianer beim Fischen. Da nehme ich ein paar Felsen gern in Kauf!

Insgesamt kann ich also sagen, dass der Urlaub sehr schön war - ich würde jeder Zeit wieder hinfahren!

Ahsante na kwaheri :)

Dream Holiday

  • 5 of 5

beautiful house, beautiful beach , beautiful people !

We had 2 weeks of the best. Masudi ( cook ) is excellent and we loved the fish he grilled every day for us.

The beach is a dream. No beach boys and you can walk 1 hour alone.

The waves are not to high, so our children had a lot of fun.

We enjoyed the pool directly on the house.

You can walk through the village for shopping and we always find friendly people who helped us to find the right place for buying what we need.

We will come back next year !!
