Built around a courtyard in which there is a large fishpond and an alfresco dining area, Red House has unique design feature of an “outdoor” bathroom. The name "Red House" is linked to the colour of the house, which is a shade of red, almost orange, all over.
Red House has 4 down-stairs bedrooms all with access to outside bathrooms a comfortable sitting room/dining area and a large cool spacious veranda over looking the beach and the ocean. Festooned in brightly coloured bougainvillea the house has a lovely tropical ambience. To the right of the property is an infinity pool set under a canopy of palm trees so that it remains cool even in the hottest months.
Inside the courtyard a staircase leads you up to an open roof terrace which has the most incredible Kilifi beach and ocean views - perfect for whale watching. Off the roof terrace is the master-ensuite which has not one but two bathrooms, the second is a private bath situated on its own roof terrace; perfect end to a busy day can be spent enjoying a glass of wine whilst soaking in the tub under a moonlit sky. Beach access is down a flight of stairs through the trees. There is a shower en route so you can wash the sand and salt off on the way back up in the "outdoor" bathroom.
