You have not lived until you have tried Taku's lemon cake or Bakari's fish and chips. You will be taken back to the time when the coast was untouched and free of commerce. A smidge of heaven.
Home away from home
Ultimate 'home by the sea"
You have not lived unless you have tasted Bakari's lemon cake
I came, I saw, I died and went to heaven. But I was already there! Takaungu really is heaven on earth...
We arrived on our last legs and left feeling as though we could fly ... Taku heals the soul and has ripped our children away from technology to a real world of electric blue skies, heavenly rock pools and discovering what lies beneath the sand. Thank you.
Ooh la la. Bakaris fish dishes have me waddling home. Not to mention his fudge and cakes, all delivered with a massive smile. Wish I was taking him home too! But not all is lost, all worked off every morning in a stunning sea without a soul on the beach! Yes, Taku can (and has) rebuilt me!
