If you have the chance to stay at Rory's place, do it! It's a huge villa on a private beach and the scenery is absolutely stunning. It's far off the beaten path, and therefore quiet and the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate. Rehema and Ali are kind and personable, and they're around for whatever you need. Rehema is an excellent cook as well. The rooms are beautiful, all with ocean views. Because I was there alone, it felt like I was staying in my own castle on the beach. A truly unforgettable experience. Can't wait to return!

If you love the sea, if you love blue and turquoise and falling asleep to the sound of waves lapping at the shore, this is the place for you. We spent the days just admiring the view, watching the fishermen -requesting the fish that we wanted for dinner & enjoying the Beachhouse wine- the beach was ours not another single tourist to be seen. Rehema was a fantastic cook, the room was stunning with outside bed and sun beds too. We will be back

This place is heavenly. Its right at the beach and you can hear waves lull you to sleep and wake you up. The road to the property is still under construction...however you do not need a 4*4 vehicle to get by...a normal saloon will do just fine. The lady who caters to the guests is called Rehema...such a caring soul she is. She will ensure you are treated very well and get very tasty meals. If you love swahili breakfast...request Rehema to make you mahamri...you will be glad you asked!!All in all...this place is the perfect getaway for some good R&R.

Response from Rory:
Sadly the road between Malindi and Mayungu Village will never be finished, it's been scheduled for tarmacking for years, but I seriously doubt it will ever be done. It is usually quite alright for all cars, but can get a bit rough during the rainy season. Rehema is becoming a very good cook!

Fantastic host, location and staff! This house exceeded our expectations and made our trip to Malindi even more memorable. Ideal for a weekend-away, I look forward to going back. Keep it up, Rory!

Picture yourself in a boat on a river With tangerine trees and marmalade skies Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly A house in the middle of nowhere will steal your heart... I can't find better words to describe what Rory's place is Freedom, do you really know the meaning of this word? Yes or no, this is here Paradise, when you imagine it - this is the place It becomes as life before and after visiting Rory's house Whatever you need - you need nothing but this place, at least once in a lifetime - you have to come here, in the worlds top of must visit I would give it a number 1 and number 100 ( the first and the last because you can not fail to come back ), just be here and I'm sure you will feel the same As for persons who will always be near - great stuff, big smiles and all you wishes come true ( don't forget to ask for massage, you will wish to have it every single day ) And Rory - a history, thank you for your neverending talks, I miss you so much - a brother I would love to have in my life Love bless you all guys Yana

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.
