Tiwi House is one of the most exclusive coastal properties in Kenya. The house is perched atop a small cliff overlooking a private beach on the Indian Ocean and is set in 5 acres of indigenous bush blended with a designed garden.

Ruang

COUNTRY:
Kenya

LOCATION:
Tiwi House is situated at Tiwi Beach on a cliff top above the Indian Ocean, fourteen kilometres south of Mombasa in Kenya and three kilometres off the main Kenya/Tanzania road.


ACCESS:
One hour to Ukunda Air Strip or Mombasa’s Moi International Airport which has around 10 scheduled services to Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta Airport daily via Kenya Airways. The house is 20 minutes from Ukunda Airstrip for private charters and almost daily service to & from Nairobi, Mombasa, the Maasai Mara, Tsavo East and West and Amboseli with Air Kenya, Safarilink, JamboJet and other airlines.


STYLE:
Tiwi House is a beautifully furnished modern house that captures the indigenous Swahili/Arabic style. Many old trees surround the area with numerous native birds and wildlife present, including bush babies, vervet and colobus monkeys, monitor lizards, mongoose, dik dik, serval cats and many more.

ACCOMMODATION:
The house has three large bedrooms, each of which has its own bathroom. There is a fourth bedroom, “en suite” with the third. This has three beds and the whole suite is ideal for one family with younger children. A large “infinity” swimming pool, immediately in front of the house, looks over a semi private beach, reef and the Indian Ocean. The house will host up to 9 very comfortably and, depending on the guest mix, there is plenty of room for a few more!

THE FOOD:
You can either cater for yourselves or, if you wish, hire a cook for €15 a day. He or she will have been trained to cook seafood in both Swahili and European styles. Fresh fish, crabs and prawns come daily to the door. Local fresh fruit and vegetables are also delivered. Otherwise, the house comes with a full complement of staff included in the price.
ACTIVITIES: In the immediate vicinity there are many scenic walks, and an easy scramble along the reef at low tide are the lovely Tiwi rock pools. One can also go along the reef and beach to the Tiwi river. Here you can see magnificent sunsets silhouetting the ancient Baobab trees near the old Kongo mosque, a building dating back centuries. The river is home to many birds including the rare nightjar heron.
Diani, a popular European tourist destination is 12 kilometres drive away to the south. There you will find banks, restaurants, supermarkets, boutiques, bars, discos, casinos, car rental, hospitals, dentists and an 18-hole championship golf course.
Deep sea fishing and any kind of safari can also be arranged from there.The nearest game park is the Shimba Hills Reserve, just 30 minutes drive from the house. The park is famed for it's elephants, cape buffalo and the rare sable antelope. Further afield but still only three or four hours by car is the largest game reserve in the world, Tsavo National Park. Here you will find all the big game Africa has to offer, including rhinoceros.
There are air links from the local Ukunda airstrip to all other major parks in Kenya, including the famed Maasai Mara. The marine parks of Shimoni and Kisite are just over an hour away by car.Tanzania is a one and a half hour drive down a properly tarmaced road.Mombasa is served by Moi International airport and the town itself has recently achieved city status. Almost anything can be bought or made in this thriving, historically important old Swahili town which has a rich cultural mix.Mombasa has a rail link to Nairobi, Uganda and, eventually, to southern Sudan.

I cannot find enough workds to describe the beauty and tranquility of the place. We have spent there the most relaxing couple days and I have fallen in love with yet another part of Kenya thanks to this experience. The house is beautiful (in fact the photos do not reveal the brilliant design of the house), the staff was super helpful and resourcefull (please don't hesitate to hire the chef and call for a masseur, as the house has a massage bed). In one word: WOW!

Thank you so much for this very generous review and we are so pleased that you all had a most relaxing time. Just for the record, Amina will be very happy to act as your masseus - just ask for her to come up to the house.

The pool is hands down the nicest we've seen in kenya- big enough for laps, shaded in the right places for kids and overlooking the ocean. The shaded communal areas are much nicer than in the photos and really appreciated by our fairer skinned guests. Tiwi beach has lots of rock pools- perfect for searching for star fish. The Beach Boys have adopted a 'minimal hassle' policy which means each house just has one fixer and no one hassles you - our beach boy Amos was polite and professional- we did a lovely guided walk with him to a rock pool the shape of Africa with live corals- he gave us snorkeling gear and gave a great history of the beach. We had a lovely time- beach fires at night, chilling during the day. See you soonTiwi house, we'll be back!

We had a wonderful relaxing 10 days at Tiwi House. The staff were very friendly and looked after us extremely well. The house is lovely and spacious with a wonderful verandah to lounge on and a great pool to cool off in. The view is stunning and the beach was very quiet with only a few friendly beach sellers who didn't pester us. Particularly enjoyed the troops of vervets and colobus that passed through the garden on a regular basis and the noise of the bushbabies at night. Thanks very much.

The Tiwi House is an amazing place to relax and enjoy some time away. My wife and I and our seven children spent a week there and had a wonderful time. The house is spacious and clean, the pool is great, the landscaping is beautiful and the views of the ocean are breathtaking. Only 15 min drive into Diani Beach where you can get groceries, shop for souvenirs, have a lunch or dinner at a beachfront restaurant or plan an excursion such as glass bottom boat tour, snorkeling, scuba diving or even sky diving. John and Vivi were wonderful hosts, very helpful before and during our stay. The staff on hand went above and beyond expectations to be sure we were comfortable.

What an amazing house! Really spacious, very classy bathrooms, beautifully appointed sitting room and stunning outside area with infinity pool looking over the ocean - just gorgeous! Joseph the house keeper and George the cook looked after us wonderfully and were very friendly. The place just demands relaxation - it is a haven of tranquility. Very tucked away at the end of Tiwi Beach (a true paradise beach) and about a 30 minute tuk tuk drive from the nearest place to buy food. Veg and fresh fish can be delivered to the door. In the time prior to our arrival, John was very helpful with all the arrangements and providing information. We loved our stay here and hope to come back some day. Thanks a million John and Viv!

Thank you Claire for this generous review and we are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Tiwi House. We are grateful for your advice on "underselling" and will look again at the economics of activating the air conditioning - this has been a rather expensive "issue" in the past!
