Shopping while on holiday in Watamu is easy and enjoyable. For groceries and supplies you can either pop into the village in a tuk-tuk, order by phone and have it delivered or you can ask our staff to shop for you. If you would like us to get any provisions in for when you arrive please let us know and we will arrange it.
Local fishermen will come to the house with their daily catch including king prawns, lobster and local fish, weather permitting. All towels and linens including pool towels are supplied. Bedding is changed weekly unless requested. Our staff will be happy to do guest's laundry daily. It will be returned to you beautifully ironed either folded or on hangers.
The house is supplied with 3 phase power but in case of an outage we also have an automatic diesel generator. All of the hot water is heated using solar panels seated above the 40,000 litre cold water storage tank ensuring a constant supply.
As well as 24 hour G4S cover we are also members of Watamu Against Crime (WAC) a local community group which has funded 4 surveillance cars that patrol the area making Watamu one of the safest areas in Kenya. The local community have also funded a fully equipped Red Cross ambulance to be stationed in the village so that in the case of an emergency speedy transport to hospital is available.
The nearest airport is Malindi which is a 20 minute drive to Watamu. It is served by connecting flights from Nairobi by Kenya Airways and Fly 540. The international airport at Mombasa is 2 hours away from Watamu as is the newly opened SGR. We can arrange pick up by car from any of these locations.
