The House

A family owned beach house, over 900 square metres, nestled amongst the dunes of one of Kenya's most beautiful secluded beaches, stretching for miles on end and untouched by crowds. It is the last house on the beach, located on a 20-acre beachfront plot with over 1,000 coconut palm trees and other indigenous plants, making for an idyllic setting.

The house is built entirely from locally sourced materials to the family's own design. It is ideal for families and groups of friends, with large amounts of airy indoor and outdoor living space, a swimming pool and 5 double bedrooms all opening out towards the sea. Each bedroom has an en suite bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe, and can accommodate an additional bed.

Inside the house it boasts a large open kitchen with a breakfast bar, a dining area that can accommodate 16 people at the table and a large family snug area. Head upstairs for the astonishing roof terrace set under the traditional makuti roof, stretching the whole length of the house, which provides incredible views out to sea – a fantastic sundowner or morning coffee spot!

Beautifully hand carved canopied tables and sun-loungers allow for relaxing around the pool. Another secluded sun spot can also be found at the end of the boardwalk on Tunusuru, our recovered dhow boat and symbol of the house.

We are blessed with a wonderful team of dedicated staff that look after our family, our guests and our home, led by Chrispus the Manager. The excellent Chef, Kahindi, is passionate about the local cuisine and fresh seafood, as well making excellent puddings! He enjoys coming up with menus personal to you and can cater for all dietary requirements. With options to dine at the beautiful hand carved long table, on the roof terrace, by the pool or under the stars on the beach, dining at home can be exquisite.

Truly, this is an exceptional place to stay, and we look forward to welcoming you into our home.

    We had a wonderful stay at Ampoja House and were very sorry to leave yesterday. We would definitely love to return. Chrispus and the rest of the team were fabulous! It is rare to find a team of so many who were all working so hard whilst at the same time respecting our privacy, and always bearing smiles. Thank you to your team for their hospitality!

  • Alice and I absolutely loved our time at your house. The beauty and privacy of Ampoja is simply wonderful and we had a fantastic stay, with lots of laughs, delicious food, a beverage or two and perfect weather. You have built a truly wonderful house in a fantastic spot and were incredibly generous to rent it to all of us. Thank you also to your wonderful team who could not have done more.
