Welcome to our little tropical sanctuary! We are located a stone's throw away from Mtwapa creek and the highly rated Marina Seaside Restaurant. Share our beautiful cottage with us and book this spacious room with en suite bathroom that has it's own private entrance. You will also have access to a pool, kitchen, and indoor and outdoor living space. There's free tea and coffee, parking and wifi included - everything you need. My son, our dog and I look forward to hosting you.

The space
The cottage is in it's own compound in a quiet, safe neighbourhood with good security.

IMPORTANT: Please note that we have a large dog who has access to the shared spaces; if you are uncomfortable with dogs this will not be a suitable Airbnb for you!

There is ample parking space in the driveway, and private access to the guest area- a lovely, clean bedroom that consists of a double bed and a single bed. It has a large wardrobe for storage and access to its private en suite bathroom.

The shared indoor living areas are accessed through a separate door through the utility room where you'll find a semi-automatic washing machine and fridge that you may use (You will have a dedicated shelf in the large fridge).

This leads to our kitchen that you will have access to, with complimentary tea and coffee.

Our living room is large, yet cosy with ambient lighting and a TV. Please feel free to use our guest Netflix account!

The speakers and lights in the shared areas, including outdoors, are all smart. You can ask the speakers to turn on and off lights, play music, or give you information. Enjoy this unique feature that you won't find many places else!

Walk out through the beautiful double doors and you will find yourself on a relaxing terrace overlooking our well maintained tropical garden and pool. The terrace has a Lamu style day bed, coffee table and chairs, and dining area. This is a great place to relax and unwind.

Last but not least, the south facing garden and pool are absolutely gorgeous. The palm trees provide shade at all times from the intense sun, while there are always a few sunny spots available for sunbathers. The pool is around 5 foot deep, shallow enough for most adults to stand comfortably.

At the bottom of the garden there is a gate with a path that leads directly to the creek.

Where you’ll be

Mtwapa, Kenya

The residential area of La Marina is a leafy, quiet neighbourhood, a welcome sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of Mtwapa town. There are two restaurants within walking distance, both with views of the creek. We are short drive away from all of Mtwapa's offerings including The Moorings, the famous floating restaurant, as well as numerous other restaurants, bars, cafes, and shops. There is a recently opened Quickmart in Mtwapa for all your grocery shopping needs, and beaches just 10 minutes away. Mtwapa is located just 17km from Mombasa town, and 30km from Mombasa International Airport.
