Magical Watamu House was a great place to stay. The house is remote and quite, away from the noise and bustle of the busy touristy beach, but only a one minute walk from the lagoon. We stayed with a large group of 7 adults and 5 children for six nights. The common space was…

Thanks Joe, we're so glad you had a lovely time and like you, when I'm in the house I swim as often as I can in the lagoon in front of the house. Magic. Hope to host you again.

Truly charming, with a "glamping" feel - Tom's house is unique and feels like a real getaway. It's off the beaten track with beautiful views from the rooftop and plenty of comfortable space for lounging. Staff are friendly and so kind - we loved Joseph's fish curry and enjoyed…

Tom's communication is superb, I had to change the reservation twice (planning a trip w/many stops) and he was great about it! The house staff is stellar, absolutely exceptional. The house is beautiful and you begin to feel like the outside world doesn't exist, within hours. I do…

Glad you had fun. Just to clarify... there are 3 normal showers, just no running hot water. However they do heat up in the sun so they are warm in the evenings. If you want a hot shower in the morning (most people don't as it's so hot), then Joseph will heat up some hot water for…
