The space

The Beach House juts out into Mayungu Beach halfway between Malinda and Watamu. It is surrounded on 3 sides by water at high tides and is unique in the Malinda area. Built over 4 floors with all the bedrooms overlooking the Indian Ocean. Being right on the water we are a largely mosquito free zone. The Indian Ocean provides a steady but gentle breeze that plays havoc with their navigation.

Guests have access to both kitchens, located on the main house 3rd floor and the beachside terrace. There is also a sitting room which sports a satellite TV/DVD player and an eclectic video collection. There are 2 dining rooms; one adjacent to the 3rd floor kitchen and another on the Beachside Terrace. Guests basically have the free run of the house.

The beach house was amazing, especially the views from the master suite. Got a thousand photo moments. Drive from the Malindi is long and bumpy so be prepared though ends up in a small paradise.

This is a fantastic place to take a break and relax whilst enjoying the surrounding. The house is just incredible and the atmosphere second to none. You can have fun chatting and cooking with Rahema and Ali who took care of us. They were very nice and very welcoming. Make sure you ask Rory as much as you can regarding commuting times and costs. This will make logistic better for you. I greatly reccomend this place.

The holiday in the Beach House has been absolutely a wonderful experience. The place is paradise on Earth - with an utterly beautiful sandy beach and turquoise ocean, which during high tide gently splashes against the terrace, the reef about 100 metres from the shore with all the variety of sea creatures, and the fresh breeze helping to relieve the heat during the day. Although it is quite distant from the big hotels in Malindi and Watamu, we felt very safe, thanks to the security on the property and the dogs that wouldn't let any undesired person step in. The staff (Rehema, Ali and Samuel) would help us in everything - they would go shopping to the town for us, arrange a massage session or organise a snorkeling trip. They had a very rare ability of reading our thoughts - when we felt sleepy Ali was there with a coffee, when we felt hot, he was there with a cold fruit coctail. They were also excellent cooks - thanks to the whole range of italian products in the market in Malindi and fresh seafood bough in the nearby market, the cuisine was an absolute magic. There's no way one could not become friendly with them. In the house there are numerous books and movies, if one feels of keeping oneself occupied. There is a bar (Honesty Bar) with a whole selection of drinks and with an incredible view. Talking about the view, one can also choose to use the Loo with a View, which is a separate hut next to the house, giving space to dwell about the nature of life and death, admiring the Ocean in the same time. Rory is certainly the soul of the house. The time we spend in the Beach House would not be so fascinating for sure if not for Rory and the stories that he shared with us. In the same time Rory had a great respect for our privacy, so we could as well enjoy our time together. We highly reccomend to stay here. Satisfaction guaranteed!

I spend most of my time in Kenya based at The Beach House. I am English, though will soon be Irish thanks to Brexit. I hardly ever go back, instead I spend the balance of my year in Italy where we have another family house the Villa Oriel.

I spent many years owning and operating nightclubs and restaurants in the UK and Europe, but now prefer a quieter time.

Life at The Beach House is very laid back, we like to think of it as 5 star beachcomber though within easy striking distance of downtown Malinda. Life on Mayungu Beach is years behind the time it's the last unspoilt beach between Malinda and Watamu and is utterly serene. A great place to write your novel.

Our other property is the Villa Oriel on the Island of Elba in the Tuscan archipelago. This is our family home stuffed with family treasures.

I hope you like them.
