We, a group of three couples had the exceptional opportunity to spend two extraordinary weeks in Villa Annchen in Mombasa - Mtwapa Creek.
In short words: we just loved it!
The accommodation is simply an amazing location with an outstanding view over the Indian Ocean inlet Mtwapa Creek, needless to speak about the exceptional sundowners one can experience from the home. Our expectations from what we saw in the pictures on the website were very high. Nevertheless they were exceeded by far! The staff of the house did a fantastic job in accommodating us and we would like to highlight Rebeccah as a lovely and always helpfull house manager. Further, the handling and negotiations with the owners of the house were very straightforward, uncomplicated, efficient and pleasant. To cut a long story short: we all fell in love with Villa Annchen and hope to return very soon to re-live the unforgettable experience. I think we speak for all of us: we want to come back for sure!
This villa is absolutely charming all the way to the details. We were warmly received by the villa manager who picked us up from airport and felt immediately at home. This beautiful home, divided into individual rooms, is even more lovely in person than in the photographs (which is not always the case). The rooms are uniquely and tastefully designed and decorated, the space is very comfortable and refreshing. The pool is the best among many that I visited in 6 months in the region of East Africa. The gardens and grounds in general are well kept and stunning. The meals made by our private chef are healthy and delicious. We wanted a quiet, restful, picturesque getaway and that is just what I found at Villa Annchen!
Falls Sie dies suchen sind Sie hier genau richtig. Wir wurden am Flughafen abgeholt und nett empfangen. Die Villa ist gepflegt und sauber, die Zimmer ansprechend mit viel Platz auch fürs Gepäck und die Bäder sind ok. der Natursteinpool ist wunderschön und man hat einen tollen Blick über den Mtwapa Creek und seiner tropischen Umgebung. Der wahre Luxus sind die Menschen die das Anwesen bewirtschaften angefangen vom Vermieter der einem gerne mit Rat und Tat behilflich ist, über die Hausmanagerin Rebeccah mit Ihrem feinfühligen, unaufdringlichen und hilfsbereiten Service ,den Gärtner (der uns nachdem er merkte das ich Blumen mag, jeden Tag einen Blumenkorb liebevoll arrangierte)und dem Koch der uns 3 x am Tag eine ausgezeichnete frische und abwechslungreiche Küche bot, unter anderem auch den besten Lobster den wir je gegessen haben.Sie alle haben uns richtig verwöhnt ohne jedoch unsere Privatsphäre zu stören. Vielen Dank für einen sehr erholsamen Urlaub, wir haben unseren Aufenthalt hier sehr genossen.

Golf: 1) Nyali Golf & Country Club (18 hole) is conveniently situated within the posh residential area of Nyali. It is close to the North Coast Hotels and lies 8 km from the centre of Mombasa Island along the Links Road, so named because of the situation of the Course. It is a real Championship layout with impeccable Greens and some testing short rough.
There are five par threes all having a degree of chance for the badly hit shot. Monsoon winds at different times of the year can be either a help or a hindrance making an easy par for an almost difficult par five for the high handicap golfer
2) The Baobab Golf Course (18 hole) at Vipingo Ridge is Kenyas’ newest golf course and has been built to international standards, with the world renowned USGA specification being used for all aspects of the course.
The location of the course, having spectacular views of the Indian Ocean to the east and the vast African interior with its stunning sunsets to the west, gives golfers a fantastic visual of one of the most impressive areas of natural beauty in Kenya.
The course was designed by David Jones, a board member of the European Tour and former Kenya Open Champion and was also officially opened by him during an inaugural ceremony in August 2009.
A meandering system of waterfalls, lakes and streams runs through the course giving a real risk-reward quality to many holes and also creating new natural habitats for birds and wildlife
