Elena, Malindi: 14 Guests
Elena is an exquisite 7-bedroom Mediterranean-style villa, situated close to the Casaurina and Marine Park Beach and the many delicious restaurants of Malindi. All the bedrooms at Elena are doubles, well ventilated with the coastal breeze and all have four-poster beds with mosquito nets. There is a fully equipped kitchen with an amazing chef as part of the deal and a full contingent of house staff to make your trip amazing.
Out in the lush tropical garden, lies not one but two sensational swimming pools; one full-sized and the other a small pool, ideal for the kids. All the internal and external furnishings follow a traditional East African tropical theme and both the upper and lower verandas are furnished with Lamu beds and chairs, all with big cushions, ideal for lounging and taking it easy.
Malindi in recent seems to have fallen from grace a little bit and is not as popular as it was. It is packed with things to do, from amazing beaches, the town centre with multiple shops and restaurants, Swahili culture all over the place and historical landmarks from the old days of the European explorers. Some of the best fishing in the world is yours for the taking off Malindi as well as the opportunity to visit the amazing Driftwood Beach Club, all this just 10 minutes from the airport… what? Yup, true story.
