Guestbook comments from the owner

Deborah was quick to respond to my request to stay at her place, especially on such short notice. This was greatly appreciated. We arrived to a beautiful 2-level unit that was wonderfully furnished and stunning views from the the wide balconies. The ocean breeze was felt throughout. The beds and living room Lamu furniture was very comfortable. We loved the openness of the space throughout. Jane greeted us warmly and was more than willing to assist in any way.

The complex guards were extremely friendly, and made us feel safe. We were less than a block from cafes, restaurants, tuk-tuk's etc. There is a path from Blue Cove which leads directly to Watamu Bay. We would definitely return to Deborah's place. She is a wonderful host!!

Response from Deborah:

Thank you Michelle for such a lovely review. We are so glad you all enjoyed your stay and have captured the feel of our place so exquisitely in your words.

Watamu is an extremely safe holiday destination. The locals are very friendly and you have many locally crafted goods/souvenir shops on your doorstep.

There are a couple of well stocked supermarkets and lots of great restaurants within walking distance.

You also have a selection of Hotels that offer various water sports and evening entertainment.

There is plenty to do in Watamu. Dhow cruises with dinner, deep sea fishing, glass bottom boats, snorkelling, Scuba diving, various other water sports.

Gede Ruins, Kipepeo Butterfly farm, Mangrove forest of Mida Creek, with boardwalks, to name but a few.

The North Coast of Kenya has some of the best beaches. The climate is hot and humid all year round with the slightly cooler months being July, August, but please remember it is never cold!!! Average temperatures range from 22` C to around 30` C.

Mombasa is a coastal Port with lots of character.

The Old Town in Mombasa is full of winding alleyways with the houses showing off their ornately carved doors, windows and fretwork balconies. Also the famous Fort Jesus which is now a museum and worth a visit. You can go on a luxury dhow cruise around the harbour with entertainment and a fantastic meal.

There is a small golf course in Malindi, about 25mins drive to the North and the new Vipingo Ridge Golf Club approximately 1 hours drive to the South.

We as a family had a very positive experience which was made even better by Jayne the house keeper. Would have no hesitation in recommending this to any family.
