From Portadown, United Kingdom May 2013

We arrived, my son and his wife and I early on Saturday morning after twenty four hours of travel and were warmly welcomed by the manager, Muramba and his two assistants, Salim and Zaidi. Our first impressions was the stunning beauty of the location overlooking the Indian Ocean, a short walk away.

The villa is just off the main Mombasa Malindi road after the Kilifi bridge. The approach is up a rather bad lane of 3 KM but it is an interesting journey in a taxi, on a tuktuk or on the back of one of the many motor bikes that are available to transport you around. Tuskys excellent supermarket is nearby for major needs but there are a few little shops on the way to the villa. A tuktuk to the supermarket return should cost no more than 500 KES (€5). The locals are really warm and friendly.

The villa was well maintained and beautifully furnished with the master bedroom en-suite and the other two bedrooms beside the bathroom. On the veranda there is a large dining table and lots of comfortable seating and the sun hits it from early afternoon through the remainder of the day.

Muramba and his men were excellent hosts and always on hand to give help and advice. They provide boating and other water activities.

We can highly recommend Sunset Villa for a week of peaceful tranquility in breathtaking beautiful surroundings with well maintained gardens and close proximity to the beach.

The villa is comfortable and charming and the location is just stunning. We could not fault the staff and would like to thank Muramba and Saidi for their hospitality, local knowledge but above all, their friendship during our stay. Muramba is a whizz in the kitchen and cooked us many different swahili dishes which were extremely tasty and Saidi introduced us to his village and their way of life. He also arranged for us to meet the local Womens Project. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sunset Villa for a great holiday." Le 29/04/2008 - Mlle Diane M. - Membre n°1967960 (Royaume-Uni) "From the moment we arrived, we were stunned with our good luck in selec ting this piece of heaven. The villa was lovely and serene and Team Sunset Villa (the amazing staff) made us feel like royalty, keeping the pool beautifully clean and inviting, arranging our transportation into town and cooking us amazing meals. The accomodation was beyond compare and although we had considered the site to be accurate, it simply didnt do it justice. The villa had a stunning view, beautiful grounds, access to the creek and a comfortable veranda from which to watch the sunsets each evening. We would absolutely recommend this vacation spot for its authenticity, relaxing atmosphere and beautiful locale."
