We're from Kenya and love to be at sea, going surfing, kitesurfing, taking people of safari, and enjoying life!

During your stay

We live in Nairobi but spend as much time at the coast as possible, so if we are there, we will pop in and say hi or leave you alone if you prefer! We are always available by phone and happy to correspond over email, whichever is preferred.
