What makes this house unique

Sunset Villas Resort is situated on the coastline of the Kilifi Creek in one of the most scenic regions of Kenya. It is ideal for friends or families looking for an escape to sandy white shores, and an undisturbed holiday.

There is a choice of three accommodation types available, of which all have beautiful bedrooms and spacious open-plan living areas. Each unit has twin beds and en-suite or private bathrooms. A fully equipped kitchen is available for all your self-catering needs, and some units have a private cook for added convenience.

Guests can spend days relaxing by the swimming pool or unwinding in the tropical garden with its variety of coconut, mango and lemon trees. A restaurant provides delicious meals that will cater to every palate and that are designed to tantalise your taste buds. There are unparalleled views of the baobab and bamboo trees, which only add to the tranquil atmosphere.

There are many beaches that are just a short distance away, and which are surrounded by a mangrove forest. The nearby creek feeds into a large lake, at the centre of which lies a beautiful bird island. It is perfect for nature lovers. The resort will provide a truly memorable and unforgettable stay.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

Simple home, well maintained and the host was very available. The children enjoyed the house very much - the kayaking boats and the proximity to the beach. The staff were also very helpful.

"Pobyt w Sunset Villa bar...

  • 5 of 5

"Pobyt w Sunset Villa bardzo udany. Dom i ogród bardzo piękne. Zatoka ( Kilifi Creek ) oddalona o kilkaset metrów. Przemili Gospodarze a za razem właściciele posesji. Personel zatrudniony w Sunset Villi w pełni profesjonalny , bardzo przyjazny i skory do pomocy na każdym kroku. Kucharz Muramba naprawdę wspaniale gotuje. Ogrodnik Saidi dba o ogród, służy swą wiedzą i pomocą w razie problemów a Salim codziennie dba o basen na posesji. Nocnego „ochroniarza” nie udało nam się poznać… poruszał się w ciemności nocy i strzegł bezszelestnie naszego bezpieczeństwa. Miesiąc cudownego pobytu w Kenii minął niepostrzeżenie. Było SUPER. Wiem jedno… niebawem… może nawet w tym roku wrócimy do Sunset Villa.. Dziękujemy wszystkim i do zobaczenia wkrótce…

Stay in Sunset Villa very successful. House as well garden very fair. Gulf ( Kilifi Creek ) away a hundred metre. Owners are nice and friendly. The crew of Sunset Villa engaged and fully professional. The cook Muramba are cooking really tasty. Gardener Saidi to take care of the garden every day. And Salim every day take care of the swimming pool. The month of a wonderful stay passed very quickly. Was super. I’m sure I’ll be back to Sunset Villa. Thanks to everyone."
