Swahili House, Tiwi: 8 Guests
Swahili House is a 4-bedroom house, with 3 doubles all en suite with air-conditioning and another single room with a fan. The house is sea-facing, with a gorgeous swimming pool and a short walk over you manicured lawn takes you to a small stairway cut into the rock and then down to the white sandy beach and the gorgeous Indian Ocean. A lovely apartment (Naked African Penthouse) at the top of the house has a queen-sized bed and bathroom that can be booked out on its own or as an additional room for the main house, at your discretion. The house is beautifully furnished and comes with a full complement of staff including a chef to cook up a storm for you in a fully equipped kitchen, to allow you to get away and relax completely. Swahili House is the perfect getaway.
To the north of Diani beach sits the little-known Tiwi beach, an old-school beach location with few hotels and sparkling white beaches. The reef protects the rock pools, full of crabs and fish and fun stuff for you to explore at low tide. Tiwi remains a precious throw-back to the old days of the Kenyan coast – a piece of paradise to lose yourself for a few days and re-centre, drink tea at sunrise and talk to your house manager about the best locally caught fish to order for your lunch, then kick back and watch the ocean. There’s really nothing else to do until it’s time for a cold sundowner after an evening stroll along the perfect beach as the waves turn purple and the stars come out.
