The space
Luxury and secure 6 x 5 meter thatch covered self contained tent for two on the Keringet Estate in Tiwi. Ocean/beach plot with fabulous cliff top pool for sole use. An incredible place for that very special weekend. This accommodation is set in a designer tropical palm garden with lots of monkeys, bird life and at night with Bush Babies. If you are not familiar with them a quick check on the internet will enlighten you.
This luxury tent is very private, unique, secure and really is a one off as most of our guests will testify to in our reviews.

The beach is a mere 30 meters to the left or right of us and has easy steps down to a beautiful sandy and very quiet beach. Unlike the main Diani Beach we have no beach boys. Most of the time you will have the beach to yourself. There is great swimming when the tide is in. At low tide you can walk for miles along the reef finding many shallow pools to wallow in.

Over the last few months we have witnessed many turtle hatching's on our beach. Our resident guide Saidi is knowledgeable about the location and timings of all these events.
We also have the Starfish Island just a brief walk away and in the opposite direction the famous Tiwi Rock Pools.
Saidi, also the starfish caretaker would be happy to take you on a tour to see them both.
He is a real authority on the Star fish and the local Green Turtle.
His nominal charge of $5 per person for the tour must be the greatest value environmental tour in Kenya.

If you really wish to be pampered take one of our chef Charles at $15 per day and pay him directly. Breakfast lunch and dinner. He can also do your minor shopping chores if you wish.
In addition we have a third party shopping service at $30 with a expansive online shopping list which you can complete and submit.
If you are arriving late or just wish everything to be ready on your arrival you can fill it in and everything will be bought for you and delivered to the kitchen.
You just pay when you get here.

If you wish we can also arrange for fresh seafood to be delivered for your arrival.
If you take the chef you might like to order in advance from the following.
All the above addresses for shopping and registration forms will be made available upon booking. Understandably Airbnb do not allow us to publish outside URLS till your booking is complete.

Data bundles can be had for as little as $5 for 2 GB.
If we have missed anything please do not hesitate to get in touch. We will do our best to make your trip to the Kenya Coast a most memorable experience.
Cheers Mike & Sabine

Airbnb has a policy on bugs and insects. I doubt if there is anywhere in Africa or any other continent for that matter where you will not find some form of what we call Dudus. i.e Something that is small and moves or flies around. Could be anything from an ant to a grasshopper etc etc. At the moment there are swarms of locusts affecting the northern part of Kenya and our neighbours to the north Sudan and Somalia. We have not been affected here in any way but it is our duty as a host to inform guests of their existence.

Came to Kenya from Australia in 1972 after finishing the first of an eventual 7 overland trips across the Sahara desert from London to Kenya. Once I saw the coast here I never had a permanent residence elsewhere. Projects, building beautiful villas and building cars from scratch. Sabine arrived in Kenya 30 years ago after a successful career on the pro windsurfing tour. She now has a squirrel rehabilitation hospital on our veranda. We now have some fabulous professionally done videos of our property. Airbnb does not allow us to show these until you have made a booking. The moment you have booked ask us for the links to see what we have. If after you have seen the videos and choose not to come then it is easy to cancel the booking. We live in one of the most beautiful parts of the world I have ever found. You will be made most welcome to come stay with us.
