The luxury villa is elevated over the most beautiful shores of the Indian Ocean inlet Mtwapa Creek within 6000 sqm of land engulfed by palms, bougainvilleas and other tropical plants.

The exclusive private natural stone pool of 16m x 12m x 2.8 m size is placed between the villa and the creek.

You can indulge in your meal either in our 110 sq m wide and 6m high Matiti style salon - which include a hand carved mahogany bar and sitting lounge - or the veranda overlooking the pool.At theedge of the creek under tangerine trees will be your perfect location for a stylish tea time - looking down at the private mangrove enclosed natural beach (swimming in the creek not possible).

Villa Annchen provides a complete private atmosphere, available for you are 4 double bed rooms furnished with African carved hardwood made with exceptional attention to detail and design. The rooms are simple yet sophisticated oozing African culture and luxury. Each room is designed in a different African theme and the furnishings are carved to match the theme. All beds have custom made mosquito nets in order to fit their size and shape. Ceiling fan/bathroom en-suite/king size bed in every bedroom. Mini bar fridges in 2 bedrooms.

Free WiFi and premium DSTV (premium sport, movie, kids, news and discovery channels on a 42inch LED TV) is available in the Salon.

Additionally in three bedrooms low sound split air conditioning available (not included in the rental rates; usage if required for a locally paid extra charge of 8 € per air-con/day).

This very calm tropical paradise is not far from the pulse racing nightlife of the Kenyan north coast. The most famous discotheque is only 5 minutes away by car, the golf club is 15 minutes away and a European standard supermarket only 5 minutes away.

For your first time in Kenya a wildlife safari is a must but, the Mtwapa Creek is the centre and base for Deep sea fishing and Mountain Biking.

Make security a sure thing, a professional security firm is caretaking the compound.

Lovley villa, very relaxing. Staff fabulous. High standard of cleanliness throughout. The only downside is that the villa is out of the way and transport is essential.

World Sailer - Duesseldorf 5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012 for a stay in November 2012 Luxury accommodation in the paradise with gorgeous pool.” Lovely Villa with idyllic views overlooking the beautifull Mtwapa Creek. Very spacios, unique furniture and furnishing with many african art works, some made of ebony wood. Fantastic and friendly staff and a really perfect chef, who prepared the most delicious sea food dishes for us. Bedrooms and Villa were very clean, thanks again to Rebeccah the house manager, she was so helpfull and caretaking and the safari she organized for us to amboselli and Tsavo West will be unforgettable. An other highlight is the amazing and huge swimming pool in Villa annchen. You wont come out of this pool which looks different than most pools because of the natural stone tiles and the spectacular views of the Indian Ocean inlet. Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend? Absolutely! Recommended for: A romantic getaway Luxury-minded travelers

Philip - London Reviewed April 8, 2014 for a stay in February 2014 Value 5 of 5 stars Comfort 5 of 5 stars Location 5 of 5 stars Cleanliness 5 of 5 stars Check-in 5 of 5 stars Service Lovely Villa - Incredible location We stayed here for seven days, travelling as two families with two teenager each. The location is great, not far from all the beaches and attractions of Mombasa north coast (not very far from the airport as well), and providing wonderful views of the Mtwapa Creek - simply breathtaking. The staff kept the house well in order for us and the chef served us the most delicious seafood dishes. It was great to have the whole house and different areas for the adults and teenagers. It is beautifully decorated and really well appointed with all amenities you need like sunbeds, absolut fantastic pool, big gardens, nice bar in the living room, speedy WiFi, Sat TV with good sport channels and nice furnished bedrooms all with bathroom and with king size beds, ceiling fans, mosquito nets, small fridges and air con. I couldve happily had another few days just relaxing there.

perfection! Travel date: July 2009 Me, my wife and our two sons (7 + 12 years) had a stay (half board) for two weeks in Villa Annchen Mtwapa Creek, nearby Bamburi Beach and Shanzu Beach. The Villa is situated straight to the ocean, with a bombastic view of the creek and a direct access (through steps) to a small natural beach enclosed with a lovely tropical vegetation. The guest rooms ..... are gorgeous furnished with handmade African furniture and surly very clean. Towel s and lining are of superb quality and -of course- ever room had a bathroom en suite. ........ Absolute great: Lobster grilled (topped with a very tasty garlic butter) and all fish dishes. The atmosphere is very privat and the staff (a special thanks to the house manger -a lady-) is really caretaking and well trained. Absolute unique because of the natural stone tiles and oversize and in top condition + direct view of the mtwapa creek is the swimming pool. You really get the feeling of swimming inside the ocean! For me and my wife to get a ‘time out’ from the family life was possible as well. We had some enjoyable evenings inside the exiting night life of Mombasa North Coast - the house manager agreed to be the nanny ( of course a tip was be given) -. We really appreciate Villa Annchen as a perfect retreat offering luxury accommodation in a excellent position on the Kenya Coast. (

“Charming and romantic creek-front getaway with a gorgeous pool!” Date of review: Feb 27, 2011 Villa Annchen was the perfect weekend getaway about a 45-minute drive north of Mombasa. The service was excellent, food delicious (the fresh seafood is well worth the additional cost!), and the Swahili decor charming (Rasmus designed the entire villa and all the furniture within himself!). But my favorite feature of Villa Annchen is the gorgeous pool overlooking the creek - perfect for a cool dip after a long, hot day. (

“A great, friendly place to relax, with a beautiful view, unique stone pool, and a well kept garden.” Date of review: Oct 16, 2010 A beautiful villa, with a unique, clean stone pool overlooking a ravine. Close to all amenities. An excellent place to go for relaxing and enjoying a pool, without all the crowds. There are 4 rooms - a perfect place to go with a small group. Very private, with beautiful gardens (and some visiting monkeys too). The staff are very accommodating, and the meals are very good, with organically grown vegetables coming from their own garden. (

“Very good stay” Date of review: Oct 3, 2010 The Villa is on the north coast area.There is a housekeeper, (Rebecca), Cook, Guard with dogs (mandatory here) and grounds keeper. Very good place to stay at. The Beach is a five minute drive away at the White Sands Hotel (Cost is KSHS 1500.00 each which includes full buffet and beach access/restrooms. I wouldnt go to the public beach unless you want to be hastled by the vendors. Fully furnished villa, get price for entertaining as well. The only issue was it is quite a distance from the main road-The Mombasa-Malindo Highway, but then thats a good thing, so you will need a taxi to take you back and forth to Mombasa or Malindi. Good luck and enjoy your stay. (
