The location encompasses the rugged beauty of Africa with the tranquillity of an equatorial sea resort, set on Mida Creek in the famous Watamu beach area.
This very large modern house is designed to offer the perfect retreat for a little ‘R n’ R’ and privacy, a place where families and friends can spend time together.
5 generous sized bedrooms, all en-suite. 4 of the large bedrooms are air-conditioned, whilst the poolside bedroom has a ceiling fan to circulate the sea breeze following a quick dip in your veranda pool. Four of the bedrooms host a luxury veranda where early morning tea is spectacular watching the birds in the trees or monkeys in the mangroves and if you are exceptionally lucky at the swimming pools edge! The only room with exception to these spectacular views is the poolside bedroom which opens only feet away from the large swimming pool.
The Heathers Garden Team of 3, will look after all your basics, one of which is a full time cook. Fishermen bring seafood to the house, and the cook has a great repetoire of delicious recipes.
On Mida Creek where the Indian Ocean laps into the front garden at high tide and offers an abundance of deserted sand islands to walk on at low tide. A boardwalk provides easy access directly into the Creek for a quick dip, or kids to fish from, whilst being picture perfect for mooring your own boat.
The roof is 60% covered by ‘makuti’, (dried palm tree leaves), which provide shade for the roof top lounge, cloak room & bar. The beautifully hand crafted dining table with high backed chairs for 8 or more with an open chandelier, set the scene for many memorable meals at Heathers Garden. The house leads onto a large swimming pool which is a prominent feature of the house, as well as a lovely jacuzzi for more relaxing moments! Travel cots, high chairs and a nannying service for those with family can be provided on request. Heathers Garden has recently installed Solar Water Heaters and pressure pumps, so there should be enough hot water as required.
