10 Guests, 5 Bedrooms, 7 Beds, 5 Bathrooms
Four Twenty South is comprised of six unique and characterful beachfront houses, stylish and simple, staffed with personal chef and housekeeper on Kenya’s stunning south coast. Set in its own section of tropical garden, each house boasts natural privacy while benefiting from the security of being part of a single property.
The houses range in size from two to five bedrooms. Each comes with staff whose aim is to make your stay as relaxing as possible. They will work around you, taking care of cooking, cleaning and laundry and are even happy to shop for you, although with seafood straight from the ocean and seasonal fruit and vegetables sold door to door by local traders, you may not find that such a chore. If you would rather a catered option, they can offer a menu using the freshest seasonal produce tailored to your preferences.
All the houses have an uninterrupted view of the Indian Ocean and are a stone’s throw away from the spectacular Diani beach. The turquoise lagoon is a vast natural spa and its warm, clear water is heavenly for swimming whether the tide is in or out. The dazzling sand is so fine and so white that you can walk on it barefoot at any time of day.
Amid the three acres of tropical gardens, there is a wealth of bird life and an assortment of monkeys which play in the grounds and sometimes on your roof. You may hear bushbabies at night.
The houses have been gently renovated but retain their original character and are simply furnished with a stylish mix of British and Swahili furniture, some antique and most locally sourced. Art works are original. The houses are fully equipped down to beach towels. There are overhead and standing fans and a sea breeze to cool you. Large mosquito nets cover all the beds.
It provides a uniquely authentic, old fashioned seaside holiday, far removed from that of a resort, in harmony with the natural local environment, the seasons and the tides. A haven from the modern world, a secluded hideaway for a romantic holiday or somewhere to enjoy your family and friends. Birdsong in the morning, cicadas at night and the comforting concert of waves on the shore. The latitude Four Twenty South has its own special magic.
