Overview

Kenya Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 min walk to the beach, adventure and pure luxury, central !

You stay in a beautiful African house with the typical high Makuti roof (palm thatch). Enjoy exotic pure feeling of Africa, but stay comfortably European. All bedrooms are air-conditioned and each house has a safe.

In the middle of the property is the large swimming pool and now there is even a second pool for children and even a partition for smaller children. Nearby is a round pavilion (covered dining area), a large barbecue grill and a big pond with many fishes and waterfalls. Everything is beautifully lit at night and looks great!

A gardener maintains the lush, tropical and 5500 m² large garden and pool, a maid takes care of orderliness and cleanliness and a chef cooks only for you according to your preferences. You just have to buy groceries; the cook will also accompany you. 24 hrs security, at night the complex is guarded by a night watchman. Fee for the staff is included in the rent.

All the houses have solar panels, so there will no more be any power outages!

Safaris in Kenya:: You can not miss the cradle of humankind without going on an amazing safari!

There are 16 national parks, which are often very different in flora and fauna. Morning you will be picked up at the house and you go on the jeep, for example, to the Tsavo National Park. You can also fly in to the Masai Mara from the small airstrip, a very special experience!

Who would not want to stay in a lodge or tented camp, just drive to the nearby Shimba Hills and admire the elephants and various animals there. Then you can come back home in the evening.

Diving and water sports:: The next diving centre is right next to us. You can bring your own equipment or rent here. If you have never dived before, you can learn in the diving school. There are various tours, like, wreck diving. The whole coast is protected by an offshore coral reef, so there are no high waves or sharks. In the coral reef, it can also be great fun snorkelling or diving.

4th time in Marula park

  • 5 of 5

Once more, our family of 2 adults and 4 children have returned to Marula Park for the 4th consecutive year, during the New Year/Christmas period. Over the course of the years, we have stayed at Villa Cheetah, Villa African Dream and now Villa Sarabi.

Villa Sarabi is the biggest of the 3 villas, who sit in a compound that is very conveniently located, a few minutes walk from the beach but also close to supermarkets and the central part of Diani Beach.

Every year we come, we marvel at how well the garden has been designed. Even though the villas are on the same compound, because of the way the trees are planted, the orientation of the houses and the bushes are set, you have a lot of privacy. We almost never saw our neighbors (not even in the pool)

All the villas are equipped as described, with everything you need (and more) to make your stay comfortable. We have loved the staff who has worked at Marula Park for many years , who do a very good job cleaning, taking care of the place (it's nice to come back from the beach to a clean house!) . Evelyne, Jane, Celestine, etc etc are just wonderful and are a perfect mix of helpful and discreet.

The design and decoration of the houses are lovely, the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms have nice showers, the appliances work well, the pool and garden are just lovely (nothing like swimming in the warm pool water under the stars....). The owner is very warm and responsive by email and has done everything to accommodate some of our last minute planning! A big thanks, Birgit, for allowing our family to have made such nice memories in your place.

I'm trying to think of what can be improved and I really can't see what to add!

So.....I will stop my review here, because if I keep going on about all the positive things of Marula Park, we might not get a place next year ;) !

Luxusanlage an der Diani Beach

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten während des geasamten urlaubes eine luxuriöse Villa in einem tollen Anwesen! Die Villa und ihre Bediensteten liesen keine Wünsche offen, die Köchin ging auf alle Wünsche ein, das Haus wurde vom Hausmädchensehr gepflegt, der Gärtner leistete gute Arbeit und bei den Ascaris fühlte man sich gut aufgehoben. Insgesamt ein Urlaub wie in einem Luxushotel nur ohne deren manchmal lauten Gäste.

Schöne Villa mit tollem Garten in guter Lage.

  • 4 of 5

Wir hatten einen Traumurlaub in dieser vollständig ausgestatteten Villa, die in einer wunderschönen Anlage liegt. Die Villa Sarabi ist ideal für große Familien oder Gruppen.

Es ist sehr nah zum Strand und zur besten Strandbar in Diani. Auch ein Supermarkt ist in ein paar hundert Metern Reichweite.

Die Köchin Lucy war absolut super.

Wir kommen gerne wieder.

Super Aufenthalt in der Villa Sarabi

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im Dez. 2012 für 10 Tage in der Villa Sarabi.

Die Bilder und der Text entsprechen zu 100% der Wirklichkeit.

Die Villa Sarabi wurde neu gebaut und ist im erstklassigen und sehr sauberen Zustand. Die Einrichtung ist modern lässt aber afrikanischen Flair nicht vermissen.

Die Köchin Lucie hat sich immer bemüht uns jeden Wunsch von den Augen abzulesen. Und ihr Essen schmeckt einfach erstklassig. Auch alle anderen Mitarbeiter waren sehr zuvorkommend. Die Strandbar 40 Thiefs ist zu Fuß in 2min. erreichbar und wir waren dort auch mehrmals bei Nacht ohne Probleme.

Der Strand ist durch die Strandbar direkt erreichbar und ist mit Sicherheit der schönste in Kenia.(Ich kenne auch die meisten anderen). Es waren nur sehr wenige Beachboys am Strand und die waren auch nicht aufdringlich.

Alles in allem war es bis jetzt mein schönster Kenia-Urlaub.

Die Villa ist jeden Cent wert und noch günstiger als die meisten Hotels.

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und wir kommen mit Sicherheit wieder in diese Villa.

100% Empfehlung.....

Gert

The three houses are located in a 5500 m² big tropical garden with a large pool in the middle, a second pool for children (partly shallow and partly deep), pathways all around, a covered sit out with grill, a massage pavilion and a pond with fish and waterfalls. The Marula Park is located right in the middle of Diani Beach Road, close to the new Baharini shopping centre. From here, everything is easy to reach. Directly behind us is the diving club and the most beautiful beach bar. The incredibly white powder-fine sand beach is 200 metres from the house. From the airport we can pick you up, it is about 45 km away. You'll need 1 to 1 1/2 hours for the trip, but you already have your first sightseeing and travel by ferry. So you are all set upon arrival at the house already for Kenya. Then you can explore the house and the tropical garden with monkeys. Get pampered by our staff and enjoy your well-deserved vacation! Wi-Fi is free. Each house has books, CDs and DVDs and Villa Sarabi has the Wii gaming console.

Other activities: Camel riding, safari tours, snorkelling, jet skiing, kite surfing, deep sea fishing

Golf: The beautiful and well-maintained Leisure Lodge Golf Club is at most 10 minutes away.
