About Omari

We, Harriet Hetland and Eilif Torma, both Norwegians, bought Kaskazi in 2001 when we were working for the International Red Cross in Nairobi. We have since then developed the property to be a Swahili/Arabic styled mansion. For the last 4 years it has successfully operated as an up market boutique hotel.

However after more than 15 years in East Africa we, according to our long term plan, will return to Norway and rejoin our family and friends Consequently beautiful Kaksazi is for sale. However our excellent staff, under the leadership of our Manager Omari will, until a sale is concluded, keep themselves busy and serve guests this time on a letting basis.

Omari purchased this house in 2001

Why Omari chose Kenya

We bought this wonderful property in 2001. Msambweni is one of the very few unspoiled beaches left on the Kenyan coast Beach life is as it has been for many years with local fishermen, their dug out canoes, their traditional sailing boats. Always friendly and smiling.

There are no jet skis, no water skiing, just the rolling waves and the sound of the ocean breeze passing through the palms.The seclusion is a true luxury even though busy Diani Beach is just a few km. away.

What makes this house unique

The house, gardens and spread out lawns blends with the Indian Ocean. A tropical paradise of your dreams.
