Olerai Beach House, a stunning ocean front property on Tiwi Beach, offers the luxury of privacy and exclusivity on the Indian Ocean.

Built as a family home in 1990 with our large family in mind the house is very comfortable with 2 large double bedrooms downstairs, each with a bathroom and 2 more upstairs.

The upstairs area was originally left as an open area enabling our children to ask as many friends as they wished. This unusual area gives the feeling of space – which is often very limited in todays world.

The house is blessed with unique and stunning coral caves in the garden. These make a spectacular setting underneath the stars, for a romantic dinner or a special family celebration. Situated at the mouth of the caves the pool is a highlight of the property, in a particularly beautiful setting of caves and tropical gardens with a wonderful view of the sea. Children of all ages can enjoy the slide or relax by the pool in the shade.

Fresh seafood is brought to the house by the local licensed fisherman and fresh fruit and vegetables are brought in daily from local farmers.

Olerai Beach House is a special place, a relaxed and very comfortable home away from home…


The house comes fully staffed with a chef and manager, Matthew, who will look after you and help organise activities over your stay. The Kenyan coast is a place to relax and Olerai Beach House provides an idyllic spot to do just that. There are also plenty of other activities to do when here. Scuba Diving can be arranged with a number of operators including Dive the Crab, Southern Scuba and Diani Reef. They each provide introductory diving courses, open water, advanced, rescue and instructors courses. Kite surfing, kayaking and other water activities are also easy to come by at Amina Resort on Tiwi beach. The Indian Ocean offers excellent sport fishing almost all year round, and some of the most challenging and exciting deep sea fishing is available just 45 minutes drive from Olerai Beach House in the Shimoni waters and Pemba channel. The most renowned golf course is the Leisure Golf Course, adjacent to Leisure Lodge. It comprises an 18 hole championship course beautifully laid out with pools, forests and troughs. The Shimba Hills National Park and Mwalange Elephant Reserve are approximately 30 kms west from the house, an easy half hour drive. If you would like a bit of pampering, you can enjoy a pedicure in the shade by the pool or a massage on the verandah. The massage therapist can visit any time during your stay.
