Every single thing about renting Tequila Sunrise was perfect!! Barry was fast and reliable when it came to communication and making the arrangements. He made it easy to feel confident that we'd be well taken care of from start to finish with an airport pick-up (it is only 15-20 minutes from the house), groceries bought and an incredible chef ready and waiting to be sure we were super well fed every day. The house itself is beyond beautiful. It is as pictured, right on a long, lovely, quiet beach but still walking distance to some restaurants and bars if you are interested. (We loved where we were, so we didn't partake of those options.) Each of the rooms was gorgeous and airy, with comfortable beds and large, modern bathrooms. The balcony for the master bedroom was a favorite spot to read while getting periodic visits from monkeys. Storage space was really good for those wanting to unpack. We especially enjoyed the dining/living room/terrace space. While we didn't really use the game room or library, they were really nice too and would be good if the weather wasn't perfect. The staff was wonderful--present but not intrusive. They've been with Barry for a long time, and it is clear that they are happy and good at what they do. We enjoyed our talks with them and appreciated all of their efforts cooking, cleaning and otherwise looking out for us. There were two Maasai guards who split watching the property day and night--mostly making sure that the beach vendors didn't wander up to the house. (Speaking of the beach vendors--there aren't that many, but they are persistent until you understand to just gesture that you are not interested at which point they stop approaching and trying to engage.) Musa, the chef, gets a special shout-out for his fabulous fish and prawn dishes and constant provision of tasty, healthy vegetable and fruit accompaniments. We were there three nights. The only thing we would change is to stay longer!! Everyone loved Tequila Sunrise and those who trusted me to make the plans for this trip were totally impressed. We really do hope to come back for a longer visit and thoroughly recommend this house/place/Barry/staff to anyone looking for a special experience!! (The only small caveat is that it has stone/tile floors that can be slippery when wet, so it is better for adults and older children as opposed to young ones who run around like little kids do.) Please do visit! You'll be glad you did!!

Stunning Beach House -a real gem!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What an incredible beach house overlooking one of the nicest white sand beaches in the world. We thoroughly enjoyed our week stay - great location, lovely bedrooms, fabulous lounge area and infinity pool, nice rec room and even had a separate tv room and office space overlooking the ocean. An easy stroll to some great beach restaurants like Sails and Nomads and easy access to shopping only a short tuk tuk ride away. Will definitely want to return!
