Seaside Villa One & Two are fabulous beach houses located in Kenya’s South Coast, in a quiet and idyllic section of Galu Beach - part of the larger Diani Beach area. The houses are only 230 metres from the tropical Indian Ocean known for its pristine, turquoise warm waters and white sandy beaches.
The villas were conceived and designed to be luxurious homes by the beach. They incorporate a contemporary Swahili design - perfect for Kenyan coastal living. The furniture and décor were created using traditional Swahili carving techniques and designs derived from 800 years of interaction between Arabs, Indians and Europeans with the coastal communities. The sloping terracotta-tiled roof displays an architectural influence from Japan and China, adding a delicate touch to the house.
The charming 4-bedroom villas provide spacious living areas & are set within their own compound surrounded by lush tropical gardens. Being tucked away in their own garden, it gives a sense of privacy to our guests.
There are 4 air-conditioned en-suite bedrooms, living and dining areas, fully equipped kitchen, private swimming pool and terrace.
The stylish, open plan dining and living room overlooks the swimming pool and exterior lounge area and flows seamlessly from one to the other. The idea is that in the tropical warmth of the Kenyan coast, opening the inside of the house to the outside seems logical and desirable. The living/dining/lounge room spaces also create a practical environment for relaxing and entertainment- a common feature found in Swahili homes.
The houses have large windows for light & airflow and to further enhance the indoor-outdoor vistas. Thick coral-stone walls finished with a smooth decorative stucco plaster, high ceilings and fans ensure that the interiors remain cool and even in the hottest months.
