Baraka House, Watamu: 14 Guests
Set on the magnificent, and ever popular Watamu Beach is Baraka House. This sensational property comes with 4 bedrooms upstairs and 1 bedroom downstairs. 3 of the upstairs bedrooms are ensuite as is the downstairs room. Baraka comes with a huge rooftop terrace for you to enjoy sundowners or morning yoga sessions and loads of chillout space to watch the world go by on your holiday down there. You have a full contingent of staff on hand to help out around the house, as well as an exceptional chef, ready to whip up a storm in the kitchen.
What else, you ask? How about a gorgeous infinity pool overlooking the ocean, direct access to Watamu Beach right in front of the house, and free unlimited wifi, so if you’re wanting to hunker down during these crazy times and work from your home away from home, yup, Baraka is the place for you. Baraka does not have air conditioning, but as with all amazing coastal properties, the design of the house keeps it cool with the throughdraft in the warm months and protected from the ‘chilly’ sea breeze in the cooler months. There is a 2 bedroom ‘granny flat’ connected to the side of Baraka so if you have a larger group, the house can easily accommodate up to 14 people, and 3 infants. The house has 1 cot so you would need to bring extras.
In bustling Watamu the question is more what can’t you do from your doorstep? The KWS marine park that stretches the length of Watamu beach offers snorkelling, kite surfing and stand-up paddleboarding, or you can visit the amazing team at Local Ocean Conservation Trust to find out how they are protecting turtles, or check out the whale shark migration. On land, it’s a short hop to the amazing Gede ruins, or learn more about smaller spectacular members of Kenya’s wildlife at Mida Creek, Butterfly Farm or BioKen Snake Centre, both hubs of conservation excellence. A short drive away, Arabuko Sokoke Forest is home to amazing birdlife and some secretive elephants. Keep yourself fortified with endless meal options at Pili Pan, Medina Palms, Ocean Sports or the Crab Shack. If you fancy yourself as a serious fisherman, or you want to learn, Ocean Sports has some of the best deep-sea fishing boats on the coast. Malindi is half an hour away from Watamu, with stunning shopping and restaurants in the town, as well as the Driftwood Club. Whatever your coastal dream, we have a house for you.
