Tiwi Baobab, Tiwi
Crazy deal of Ksh. 25,000 per night.
One of the most elegant beach houses in Kenya, Tiwi Baobab is a spacious family home, set in spacious grounds overlooking Tiwi Beach and home to one of the largest and oldest Baobab trees on the south coast, numerous Tamarind and Neem trees. The house sits on a rise, taking full advantage of the breeze blowing off the Indian Ocean. A master bedroom and two large guest bedrooms easily sleep 6 people at Tiwi Baobab, all bedding, mosquito nets and towels are provided, as well as a fully equipped kitchen, open plan with the living room. Outside a huge veranda overlooks the ocean and provides the perfect spot to relax and soak in the beautiful peace the Kenya Coast has to offer.
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.
