Make a holiday rental property or accommodation on Kenya’s Coast, Africa your home away from home

The Kenyan Coast is a hidden piece of paradise, where the rich golden colour of the beaches compliments the dark blue of the sky and the green of the palm trees which provide the boundary between the beach and the mainland. All along the coast you can find unique symbols of European, African and Arabic cultures all of which make taking accommodation in Kenya’s coastal region even more atmospheric.

Things to do on holiday on the Kenya Coast

Safaris in Kenya are world famous, but you do not need to head deep into the countryside to see the best game. In fact, some of the largest wildlife reserves are in the coastal region, and if you are hoping to view some large game yet want to spend your holiday in Kenya in close proximity to the beach, you are in luck. The Tsavo National Park is a magnificent place to take a safari holiday in Kenya, allowing you to be back on the beach well before the end of the day.

It is the beaches which attract tourism to Kenya’s Coast. The golden, powdery sand which lines the coast stretches far into the horizon, backed by palm forests and lapped by the amazingly clear, warm waters of the Indian Ocean attract visitors in their droves. The beaches are not only a great place to sunbathe and relax, but the Indian Ocean also provides some of the best diving and snorkelling in the world. The marine parks of Watumu Bay, Malindi and Shimoni are home to completely unique habitats and animal species.

The waters of the Kenyan Coast are not fished commercially, meaning that fish can grow to extraordinary sizes. As a result, deep sea fishing for leisure has become famous as being quiet brilliant, and many people take accommodation in Kenya’s coastal region for this very reason.

The culturally orientated visitors to property in Kenya will be aware of the deserted ruins of Swahili coastal settlements which adorn the eastern coast of Kenya. Tourist information guides are very informative, meaning you can get a huge amount from a self-guided tour of Kenya’s ancient outposts.

Places to holiday on the Kenya Coast

Mombassa is Kenya’s oldest town, with a combination of ancient and modern. The twisting streets are filled with Arabic buildings, bazaars and antique shops, well worth visiting from holiday rental in Kenya.

The two most famous beach resorts, Malindi and Watamu are brilliant places to take self catering property in Kenya as they not only boast magnificent beaches, but the coral reefs just off shore are teeming with aquatic wildlife, much to the delight of divers and those with a snorkel.

Climate of Kenya’s Coast

Average annual temperatures are an amazing 28˚C, with temperatures rarely dipping below 21˚C. In summer, (during our winter), temperatures reach an average of 32˚C, during which time, the beaches and coastal waters of the Indian Ocean are an essential part of a holiday in Kenyan accommodation.

The staff are friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The pool is first class and very well maintained by Dennis as are the grounds. Margaret is a good property manager, reliable and conscientious. And Jared the security guard always attentive and reliable. The villa is well placed for Diani beach an easy walk for anyone even small children. There are various people trying to sell you something or other, but everyone is friendly and they do take no for an answer. That is a small price to pay as a whole in this area for a experience that is very special and a world away from the overall sameness of Europe. I would very much encourage people to visit here. A special place, very beautiful and just that little bit of the beaten track,

Not only is the house beautiful and artful and the location overlooking the ocean idyllic, the people of Himaya are warm, genuine and generous. The owner, Lissa, went out of her way to recommend special experiences and to accommodate our every need . She even took our 11-year-old son under her wing inviting him to help her care for the injured bush baby that she was fostering. The staff too went out of their way to make our stay pleasant, helping with everything from laundry to negotiating fair prices for our excursions in the area. & never have we eaten as well as during our stay at Himaya! Sammy’s cooking is exquisite. Himaya is truly a sanctuary; beautiful, peaceful and pleasurable.
