House Rules

Be safe! In the 18 years of rental we have never had any incident affecting the safety of our guests.

However, potential guests should understand that Watamu Treehouse is not designed for the safety of children or any adult not fully in control of themselves. Guests should specifically note:
• The High Level Walkway – this is some 10 metres above ground level with low hand rails which is both dangerous when used by children and adults alike.
• The floors – these are slippery when wet and care must be taken.
• The stairs – these are steep and slippery when wet – again care must be taken, particularly the outside stairs leading up to the roof top.
• Balconies– these are also situated high above ground level and walls are at a below average height.
Caution must be taken not to sit on the outer walls nor for anyone to lean over them.
• As in any property, no money or personal valuables should be left unsecured.

Guests booking the house voluntarily assume the risk inherent in renting Watamu Treehouse and will be required to sign an indemnity form.

The house is amazing and the pictures do not do it justice. They have an awesome chef as well. Note, the pool is shaded. A bit pricer than average but well worth the price if you have never been. Beautiful views from every room.

Wonderful stay at the Treehouse. We were there for 3 nights and rented the entire North Tower (3 rooms) even though only two of us. We did this to make sure we had the privacy we desired. It was wonderful and after viewing the space were very happy that we had the entire tower as having additional folks (that were not friends or family) in the two other rooms would have made quite difference in our enjoyment of the "open" concept. Rooms were fantastic and comfortable. the outdoor showers / bathrooms were perfect for the climate of Watamu. We were always comfortable in the rooms with a great balance of shade and sun throughout the day. Staff was super helpful and Paul made sure we had all the info we needed during our booking and prior to our arrival. Easy access to beach and property is basically adjacent to the marine park snorkeling area so you can swim out from the beach once you get permits. I have been to Watamu many times and I like the location of the Treehouse (Plot 31), but if it was your first time to the area and you were planning to spend lots of time out, then location might be a bit further away from "the nightlife" than you are expecting, however it is very easy (and cheap) to get around on the local Tuk-tuks, so not really a big deal. If you are looking for nature and avoiding the "nightlife" then this is the perfect spot for you. Also appreciated the 1/2 board option that allows you to have breakfast each day and one other meal (lunch or dinner) of your choosing. The vegetarian meals were great and the staff accommodated our meal time requests no matter how odd. Great place and wonderful views if you book one of the top floor rooms, you will not be disappointed in this choice.

Paul was very accommodating to our every need during our 3 day stay. The location was fabulous, as was the Treehouse. Honestly, the experience was magical... a dream come true! Paul was always right there to make sure that we were always taken good care of. The staff was also amazing and hard working, so A+ on the customer service! The beach.... can it get more perfect? I don't think so. Wow!
