Mdoroni

Kilifi, Kenya

Mdoroni is tucked into a gentle curve at the mouth of Kilifi Creek on the south side, at a point known as Ras Kitoka. The property consists of two fully furnished and equipped four-bedroom houses, with a pristine swimming pool in between. Each new house has amazing views from a panoramic terrace, up and down Kilifi Creek and out to sea. We have our own private steps down a coral bluff to a quiet beach. Each House sleeps 8-10 (so 16-18 guests in total) in bedrooms with ceiling fans and ensuite bathrooms, with cook and full staff. Holiday letting all year round including Christmas and New Year lets. By arrangement we can provide a host with extensive knowledge of the coast and Kenya. Relax, sunbathe, go sightseeing, snorkelling, diving, birdwatching, sailing, watersports and deep sea fishing all available. Arguably the nicest houses on the Kenya coast and certainly with the best views.

The Houses are called Pehoni House  (Pehoni meaning "cooled by sea breezes") and Behewa House, meaning "inner courtyard" in old Swahili, the inner courtyard is open to the sky. Both houses are thatched in the local traditional palm "Makuti" and are surrounded by mature trees and tropical gardens. There are 11 pool beds and a giant sunbathing mattress beside the pool, which is kept fastidiously clean by Peter

You approach the houses down a long avenue of flamboyant trees, when the scarlet blossoms are overhead in December it is a wonderful sight. Mdoroni means "the place of sweet water" in Giriama. Giant Baobab trees shade the steps leading down the coral gardened cliff to the sandy beach, there is heavenly swimming at any tide and at low tide one can walk either up the creek to the Mnarani Club or follow the cliff all the way to Takaungu Creek, a few kilometres south of Kilifi. There is a private mooring for a boat just off the beach.

These houses are ideally suited to extended families or a couple of families that like to holiday together but these houses are not ideal for tiny children unless supervised. There are many steep drops. Each House is available individually but inevitably this would result in sharing the pool and beach.

There are two night time security guards as well as alarm button connections to the Local Kenya Guards Security Patrol.
