Overal, we had the most wonderul week in Ukunda, at the Sultansakahaus. Not only is the house a gem, but the staff whom we prefer to describe as now 'friends' made our stay very special. The combination of their care, attention and not to mention the fantastic chef Musa, who could compete with any of the big names - just made our week complete. We did a lot within the community and met many of the locals. The real Africa (we visited the beach for a couple of hours one day only). If anything, we were too busy to even enjoy the pool (would do more the next time for sure).
I highly recommend this property. You feel welcomed & safe. There were just 2 of us, and it would be even much more fun with a family or another couple at least. Oodles of space and plenty to do in Kenya for the more adventurous as we were, or equally ideal for a family who perhaps does want to be pampered, and not move about too much by enjoying the house, the pool and whole experience.
If you go to Africa, you will know what to expect. Use the locals and take in some education during your stay. Best way. We have surely left our hearts in Ukunda and I would love to return one day. It was a great week to reignite my love of Africa and the amazing African people. Thank you Katerina and Sam for allowing us to share your home and just a huge hug to Musa, Rose, Naomi, Jen, Said, Alex & King. You are all beautiful people. From Carole & Vincenzo, Milan.
Our time in Lissa’s gorgeous home was beyond perfect. The house is right on the beach and can be accessed from a little door in the garden. The deck offers a stunning view of the sea and the cliffs around, as does the bedroom upstairs. The other bedrooms are a few steps away from this part of the house. These are large and airy rooms with big sit-outs that lead to the swimming pool. We spent a lot of time in and around the pool! The house is beautifully done up and has every comfort. I do not exaggerate when I say that it was terribly hard to leave Lissa’s piece of paradise and we’re already wondering when we can go back.
The house is well-located in Malindi – close to the centre of town but away from the noise. It is useful to have a car there.
What made our stay beyond perfect were the people. Lissa is warm and welcoming and ever so helpful! She has many interesting stories to tell and guided us about which shops to visit and where we could get groceries, etc. Sammy and Silas took such good care of us. We ate Sammy’s delicious meals every day and Silas made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Lissa’s many rescue cats and one dog mostly keep to themselves but it’s very nice to have them around and they only add to the warmth and welcoming of the place. Thank you Lissa and can’t wait to come back!
