Little house in Kilifi with incredible views, all you need for the perfect holiday at the beach. The old family home looks down on Bofa beach and out across the Ocean. Access to the beach is via private steps. A gorgeous swimming pool with infinity finish and sun bathing shallows.

The space
The master ensuite bedroom is upstairs with a gorgeous balcony that looks out over the endless beach, ocean and pool.

Downstairs we have the kitchen, indoor dining, stores and a sitting room that opens out onto the downstairs verandah with beautiful views. We also have two additional bedrooms and a bathroom downstairs in their own wing. One is a big double room and our third bedroom is small and cosy, although it does have a queen size bed it is a slight squeeze. (we recommend having one guest in it to be comfortable)

I have also listed a 'sofa bed'. This is a lamu bed up stairs on the verandah where we can hang a mosquito net if required. Prior booking is necessary in order to prepare the bed. There is an extra charge for an adult using this facility.
(Room with a view) :)

There is no Air Conditioning but every room has a fan.

Guest access
The House is situated on a coral head with private steps down to the beach about 60 meters away. Bofa road is about 100 meters behind the house where one can easily access tuktuks/motorbikes/taxis into Kilifi Town. The town and shops are a 10 minute car ride away but down the road, within walking distance, there is a small farm shop with some essentials.

Other things to note
Some activities you might enjoy while staying at Rusty's.

Goggling
Surfing
Beach Walks
Reef Walks
Sand Castle Building
Jogging
Sundowners

In the house you will find a small information package with some restaurant recommendations, town info and contacts etc.

Please also note and be mindful that while staying at Rustys you are in Africa! The house is built especially to catch the breeze and keep you cool, this means the some of the walls are built with breeze blocks and the windows have shutters, therefor insects, local small lizards known as Gekko’s (they eat the mosquitos!) and rarely small hedgehogs come and go easily throughout the house. Most are harmless and more frightened of humans than the other way around! (Plus they all play their part in nature and are necessary to the whole ecosystem!)

Sometimes the monkeys and bush babies pop in on the look out for some tasty fruit/food - Please do not encourage them by feeding them or leaving any food too visible!
Ask our staff for any assistance if needed.

During your stay
The house is our family home, we live in Nairobi so will communicate via email and put you in contact with the staff in Kilifi who will host you.
Rose, the housegirl is lovely and friendly. Festus is our excellent Chef, William our pool and garden man and Mumba our night guard. They are all included in the AirBnB pricing but I am sure would appreciate a tip :)
Please note that non of our staff are life savers.
Rose is not a nanny/ayah, but is happy to look after your children while they are on the property. She is in charge of keeping the house clean and tidy for you - so please bear this in mind if you use her for child minding!
The staff come to work at 7 each morning and will work through till you have your lunch. They usually have an afternoon siesta time - after lunch until 4 pm. We would appreciate not keeping them any later than 9.30pm, but if you plan on having a late evening, ensure you discuss this with them and make sure they have adequate time off the following day to compensate the late night.
The gardener and nightwatchman obviously have different hours but are also there to help the house run efficiently.
The gardener will take his day off on a Saturday each week.
