Jenny Fortune purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Jenny Fortune chose Watamu
We fell in love with Watamu and the people after a special anniversary holiday several years ago. We now have the most wonderful local Kenyan friends who have made us feel like family. Each visit feels like going home. 2 years ago we decided to build an eco friendly house in this fabulous location. Kiboko Nyumba was completed in November 2014 and is the realisation of our dream. Watamu is filled with great holiday experiences from scuba diving and deep sea fishing to bird watching and mini safaris in the Arabuko Sokoke National Park. Whether you are looking for action filled adventures or lazy relaxing sundowners on the tranquil waters of Mida Creek Watamu, is the ideal place for you.
What makes this Villa unique
Kiboko Nyumba is a unique property enjoying a quiet, secluded location while being only minutes from the local village of Watamu and the beautiful white, sandy beaches. Allan, our experienced chef and his team will be on hand to provide daily cleaning and laundry as well as cooking and serving all of your meals. They will also do whatever they can to make sure your holiday is as amazing as possible. As well as a night time askari the house is surrounded by a security fence which is monitored by G4S.
