Location

Mombasa, Kenya

The best view of Fort Jesus. The Old Town is lit up at night, giving you a unique view across the water. Old dhows and sailing boats are a common sight. The road is well lit and tarmacked. The neighbourhood is safe and secure. Guests often walk to the shops, English Point Marina or the famous Tamarind Restaurant for a sundowner. Close to town yet serene and beachy in feel, this is an ideal spot for relaxation as well as for business in town. We are close to transport links, the mall, local eateries, Kongowea fruit; veg and second hand clothing market, Mamba Village, Haller Park and Nyali Beach. All worth a visit!

I am a writer, film maker and social activist, passionate about Kenya in particular and Africa in general. As a host I am relaxed and non-intrusive - guests should feel right at home and feel free to enjoy my home. The Lighthouse has hosted several writer and artist retreats and is a great base for film crews. As a writer, I spend a lot of quiet time away from the main house, so guests should not expect to see a lot of me. The Lighthouse team are brilliant at keeping the Lighthouse sparkling and are adept at meeting guests' needs. I love film, reading, yoga, meditation and Zumba! I have travelled the world and am now happy to be in Mombasa and have lived here now for over 25 years. I have gained a lot of local knowledge and am happy to share this with others. My motto is 'live and let live and treat others as you would like to be treated yourself' . We have zero tolerance for sex tourists, but apart from that, we welcome all with love and respect.
