Larsen's House

Larsen's overlooks the Indian Ocean at Watamu, Kenya.

Type: Private house

Region: Watamu

Activities: Snorkeling, Scuba Diving, Bird Watching, Wind Surfing

Safaris: Upon Request

This airy and spacious house is nestled among palm trees right on the edge of the Indian Ocean. The Watamu beach with its white sand, turquoise waters and superb coral reefs was recently voted the fifth best beach in the world by the Sunday Times Tour Operator Poll. If you have ever dreamed of living on a tropical beach, Larsen's House will let you experience your dream!

At Larsen's House you are able to enjoy all the comforts of home away from home, with none of the worries or chores. Your own personal cook prepares your meals, with cleaning and laundry the responsibility of the housekeeper. The local supermarkets and greengrocers can deliver your order to your door! Fresh fish, including crab and prawns, are regularly brought to the house by local fishermen if you so wish. So pamper yourself with a holiday dream house on the beach!

Larsen's House offers enough space for a family or group of friends to stay together, yet it is also a romantic, private spot for a couple to enjoy a honeymoon. The ground floor contains a large, open-plan living and dining room, which opens out onto a large shady verandah with an attached bar area.

A bright reception area welcomes you at the entrance; each room is light and breezy, with comfortable chairs and sofas inviting you to relax. A large, well-equipped kitchen is also found on this floor.

Upstairs are four large, double bedrooms. The master bedroom has a stunning, shady verandah and its own ensuite shower and toilet room. Three twin-bedded rooms share a shower room and two toilets. All rooms have fans and mosquito nets and all but one room have a clear view of the Indian Ocean, with the fourth room facing the inland forest of palm trees.

For those guests with a vehicle, the double garage offers safe parking as well as storage for any water-sports equipment you may bring.

Snorkeling and scuba diving is highly recommended in Watamu.

Diving and snorkeling is superb in Watamu. The Watamu National Marine Park boasts over 600 species of fish in just 10 square km. It is virtually impossible to snorkel without seeing a least a few dozen species inside the main reef; divers outside the fringe reef stand an excellent chance of viewing the magnificent whale shark and Manta rays that are seasonal visitors.

If underwater exploring is not your style, not to worry! Try windsurfing, dolphin watching boat trips, gentle walks to explore the rock pools, bird watching in Mida Creek, exploring Gede Ruins and the unique Arabuko-Sokoke Forest or simply lying on the beach. Watamu beach offers something for everyone!

Enjoy lazy, relaxing days snorkeling in the clear, blue waters, or beachcombing on the five-mile long stretch of sand. Settle down on a shady verandah for a fresh, home cooked meal before an afternoon 'pumzika' (nap), or try your hand at windsurfing. Whatever your beach holiday ideal, Larsen's House is the perfect base.
