Chingwede House is located about 2km south of the village of Msambweni on the remote southern coast of Kenya. Although this private house can be booked separately, it more usually serves as an overspill annexe to the adjacent Samawati House.

It is slightly smaller and simpler than its neighbour, also with four rooms. Essentially self-catering, the house comes with a full complement of staff including cook, askari and cleaner. Guests do need to be pretty independent, so probably best suited to more seasoned travellers.

This private house offers the finest in coastal life without the crowds and without the stress. Long walks on Msambweni Beach are interupted only by delicious fresh seafood dishes and long cocktails to keep you cool.

Ground Floor

    Two twin bedrooms - one with en suite bathroom, the other with adjacent bathroom
    Spacious veranda running the full length of the house with a comfortable seating area, furnished with traditional coastal sofas and table
    Sitting room, dining room and kitchen

Upstairs

    Master bedroom with ensuite bathroom
    Twin bedroom (ideal for children) with cot available
    Large veranda partly covered....perfect for cocktails as you watch the sun set behind the gently rustling doum palms
