My wife and our children (boy 8 and girl 3) plus our extended family (two more adults plus girl aged 4 stayed in Maisha Marefu vacation rental in Malindi Kenya for the month. We were treated like royalty by John and his team from the time we arrived until we left.
The house is spacious with 4 bedrooms plus huge outdoor/indoor living areas and the grounds with a salt water pool are very well looked after.
The kids had great fun finding the numerous lizards in the gardens including a large resident (not harmful) who would sun himself on the rock outside the childrens bedroom, much to their delight.
There is other numerous night life including small bats who would fly through the open living areas at night searching for insects.
The pool has stairs so younger children can be catered for on these but you much watch them if they cannot swim as it is deep very quicly otherwise.
This can all be done from the very comfortable sun lounges beside the pool which are set up each day with fresh towels.
Maisha Marefu Accommodates 8 people in 4 double rooms with 4 en-suit bathrooms. Swimming pool, lounge, dining room and a huge veranda and fully equipped kitchen.
The villa has staff for cooking and cleaning.
Activities in the local area include: Beaches, snorkelling, diving, fishing,
wildlife and bird viewing, golf and beach activities through the hotels and
resorts close by.
The house is one row back from the beach. It is set in the up market area of Casuarina and is situated directly opposite the Malindi Marine Park, its beaches and beach bars.
Being slightly elevated the villa is blessed by the cool sea breeze all year round.
The villa is well situated for Malindi town centre, the Malindi airport and the Malindi and Watamu Kenyan North Coast resorts, game parks and forest reserves.
