About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, patio, balcony, pool, gallery w/ extra double bed, cook

If you are searching for a holiday spot, away from hotel complexes with hundred tourists, dozens of chairs close to each other, noisy strange children in the pool and jam-packed crowd at the evening buffet, then you are at the right place here. Your 360m2 villa has 2 bedrooms with double beds, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, balcony, large patio, huge gallery with extra double bed, a swimming pool and a new Jacuzzi. The villa is on a 2200m2 large, fantastic, well-maintained plot. Eunice, the house maid takes care of the daily cleaning and your personal cook Riziki is ready to treat you with culinary delights. Everything is inclusive in the price, of course even safari, our gardener and the spirits of the house. The kitchen has a separate entrance for the personnel. The top floor with gallery has a large living room with an additional double bed, a 40' Samsung flat screen satellite TV (even ZDF), radio, DVD stereo system. The high Makuti roof ensures a pleasant climate in the room with the oversized gable openings. Additional cooling is provided in all bedrooms by quiet fans. Electricity is set-up as per European standard (240V) (enough adapters available).

Spa: Spa essentially means bringing body, mind and soul in harmony. Your relaxation and comfort is of utmost importance to us. So optimal external conditions are created to relax in tranquillity and peace with the help of our organically built villa. Over 2200m2 large well-maintained garden there are opportunities to discover nature and your own self with many small special features. In the new Jacuzzi in the garden for 6-8 persons the dream of luxury comes true. Wellbeing and relaxation is guaranteed. In the private atmosphere of your villa you can enjoy aroma therapy and professional massages. Ask our property management. You can try different types of massages. The masseuse or masseur will also come to your house upon request. A large massage table is available.

Diving and water sports: The nearest diving pool is very close to your holiday villa. And no matter whichever provider you choose, you will be overwhelmed by the safety standards and service. So you will be picked up by all the providers directly at the villa and you can either bring your entire equipment, or even rent it locally. Cost wise there is no difference. You don't know to dive yet? – You can learn it here. The diving schools offer their lessons in various languages, like German, English or even French. You can get the first training in pool, before you actually get on the boat to the reef. Look around in peace. There are different tours offered, for e.g. wreck diving. The entire coast is protected by an offshore coral reef, so there are no sharks near the beachside.

A tip for the youth or young adults:

The coast is an eldorado for kite-surfers. There are two accredited schools nearby.

For the younger ones we recommend windsurfing.

Safaris in Kenya: Kenya is the cradle of humankind and our world has developed so diversely, opportunities for safaris in the various national parks are also varied. You must have seen the – Big Five – during a visit to Kenya. You can experience those animals in the national parks. Kenya has enormous opportunities for adventure in the nature. With 16 huge animal reserves all your wishes can be fulfilled for you. Whether flight or jeep safari, overnight stay in an exclusive lodge or in a fully equipped tent, everything is possible. As safari agency we recommend Lady M - Safaris. For a day safari the nearby Shimba hills is ideal.

You can explore the land with motorbike also (which I don’t recommend) or climb up the Kilimanjaro. This would be an ultimate holiday experience for you. Since I had already gone up there, I would definitely suggest that.

About Waltersdorf Family

In 40 years of flying as a captain even in the LTU airlines I have seen most of the world. Together with my wife and two sons we have visited many places in the world for holidaying. We can give an opinion where it is beautiful. The retirement is getting closer, and with it also the time of intensive fun.

Waltersdorf Family purchased this villa in 2012

Why Waltersdorf Family chose Galu Beach

We have seen very beautiful holiday regions through my profession. After we have spent many years our holiday on Marco Island in Florida, we opted for a more beautiful beach: the Diani Beach. Everything fits just right with the house. One has to search for a long time to find a similar property with as much flair and charm, with such a well-maintained garden close to the beach. The hit is the new Jacuzzi, unique on a private holiday rental property on Diani Beach.

What makes this villa unique

Soon after arrival life starts decelerating. You start to really live again, enjoying the boundless tranquillity in the African setting. Fresh food without chemicals, healthy air in a year-round pleasant climate. Here no neighbours disturb you, no car noise. The beach walk is part of the day. We are pleased to now be able to enjoy the private new Jacuzzi in the garden, unique on Diani Beach. The massages on the special massage table is part of the daily ritual, a sample massage is included in the price. The relax - swinging sun bed makes the time spent in a recreation area (spa) complete. Pure luxury to spoil oneself. For muscle training we have a new Adidas home gym and a table football game (Kicker) for fun.

When you are used with European standards a trip to Kenya could be a real challenge. Our decisions to stay in Villa Soleil made our accommodation a real comfort. We spent 10 days there, during our holiday between years. The villa is above all expectations we had. It has highest standards of services and facilities, outstanding communication with the owner, before and during our stay. Excellent location, not in the crowded area, but just a few minutes walking to the beach. Go to Kenya and enjoy your stay at Villa Soleil!

Relaxing in luxury, menus from a 1st class chef

  • 5 of 5

We came to the Villa Soleil on our honeymoon, wondering what awaited us on our first trip to Africa. We came back from our honeymoon rested, relaxed, pampered, and determined to book again ASAP.

"Team Soleil" made every part of our honeymoon special, from Wolfgang's friendly and helpful emails telling us everything we needed to know about preparing for the trip, to Musa's beautifully tended garden, to Eunice's warm smile and readiness to help with anything we needed, and especially chef Anthony's incredible cooking! Even on a honeymoon, we're not usually the types to hang around the house, but we honestly just didn't want to go anywhere else. We dipped in the pool, swung on the porch swing, watched films, and stuffed ourselves to bursting every day. We did wander down to the beach and it was lovely, no problems with beach boys at all. But it just couldn't compete with the beauty, privacy, and peace at the villa.

Just to keep it real, there was one small imperfection-- the power went out a few times during our visit, which was annoying. However, I have heard that Wolfgang will be adding a generator to the property soon.

If the property happens to be available, I can only say book it immediately!

Owner's Response: Dear Charys, thank you very much for your comment. It was our pleasure to host you and we are happy that you enjoyed it. The generator is on our plan and will be available in due time. An air condition in the two bedrooms is installed after your departure. We hope to see you again in the Villa Soleil. Kind regards as well from the team. 11.7.2016: P.S.: We are happy to inform you and all the previous and future guests that a power generator has been installed in between.

Wonderful oasis of serenity and relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we were welcomed and made to feel like royalty. We were greeted by the staff with an introduction, tour and a much needed refreshing drink. Inside the walls you find a beautiful home to relax and take life at a very slow pace indeed. All your needs are met by the staff so all you can do is relax. In one week we read several books (unheard of in our busy lives); swam in the private pool; wandered to the beach for a swim in the ocean each day; sat drinking beer or cocktails at a hotel on the waterfront; cycled along the shore and, each evening, just sat upstairs with our wine watching monkeys playing in the trees. All food was prepared lovingly by Anthony the Chef whilst Eunice took care of the cleaning and washing. We actually met the owners, Beate and Wolfgang as they arrived on our departure and can truly recommend them as honest hosts who look after every detail. We left Villa Soleil feeling more relaxed in one week than any two week break we have taken and we holiday a lot! The beach boys were no trouble, just be polite but firm and they will leave you alone unlike in The Gambia. There was also no sign of any trouble at all despite concerns of late. Diani Beach is not a trouble spot at all, far away from all of that. We firmly recommend Villa Soleil as a relaxing holiday destination.

Wer es sich gut gehen lassen will und sich gerne verwöhnen lässt, ist in der Villa Soleil am richtigen Ort. Sie ist mit viel Liebe hochwertig eingerichtet und die drei guten "Hausgeister" Anthony, Eunice und Musa erledigen ihre Aufgaben vorbildlich. Unbedingt und uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert!

Wundervoller Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei wunderbare Woche in dem Haus verbracht. Es ist mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet und Anthony, Eunice und Musa haben sich sehr liebevoll und unaufdringlich um uns gekümmert. Besonders Anthony hat uns immer wieder mit seiner Kochkunst auf ein neues überrascht. Der Garten und der Pool sind sehr gepflegt. Wir sind schon viel im Ausland unterwegs gewesen, aber wir können mit Trug und Recht sagen, dass uns noch nie ein Vermieter im Vorfeld so umfangreich über Land und Leute informierte, Ausflüge organisierte und zahlreiche Tipps gab. Vielen Dank hierfür.

Wir sind ungern nach zwei Wochen abgereist und kommen sicher gerne wieder. Könnten wir nur 6 Sterne vergeben :-)

Diani Beach is a holiday resort, located south of Mombasa, directly on the Indian Ocean. The resort has the best conditions for you to relax during your holiday very well. You will find excellent opportunities here for trips, safaris, sports, swimming, kite-surfing, beach walking, shelling or simply just relaxing! Matatus (small buses), which are extremely inexpensive, run continuously between the house and the shopping facilities. Groceries are very cheap and everything that the heart desires is available. Over 20 kilometres of fine, white, plain sandy beach, ideal for jogging or walking, enchant thousands of tourists every year from all over the world and you will never feel like being in a holiday region where mass tourism has taken hold. At Diani Beach there are numerous restaurants with excellent international and African cuisine at quite reasonable price or treat yourself with the culinary delights prepared by our chef. You can find tips on restaurants, recreational activities and much more in your villa.Other activities: Safari, Nordic Walking, kite-surfing, beach-biking, gym

Golf: Opposite to Leisure Lodge, only 10 minutes drive away from your villa, there is an 18-hole golf course.

Nature: We can gladly plan a day trip for you also to the nearby Shimba Hills, a small National Park in the middle of the jungle. You can take up wonderful hikes there, amaze at elephants and very beautiful waterfalls and landscapes. The best place for adventure, photography or even for children.

Another alternative would be deep sea fishing or a boat tour with accommodation on an island.
