“Perfect family villa”

This was a perfect accommodation for 7 people. very quiet and relaxing. You can enjoy a swim at the beach,which is a few minutes walk from the villa or jump in the amazing private pool around the villa!
The Care taker Eunice was very helpful with every information we needed i.e. activities and transportation. We also had a private chef George who made us mouth watering meals and would 100% recommend him.
All the staff were very friendly and cheerful.
My family was very happy and satisfied and if we plan on another vacation to the coast, no doubt we will be staying again at this beautiful place.

“Idyllic holiday week”
Reviewed January 6, 2016 for a stay in October 2015

We chose and booked Villa Dora independently via Sylvio and everything fell in place nicely.

We were collected from the airport in Mombassa and taken to our Villa where the lovely Eunice greeted us along with the other staff and showed us around our holiday home for the week.

The villa is huge and well equipped for a family. Lovely pool, barbecue area and gardens. All are constantly maintained by a housekeeper, gardener, your own cook and someone is on duty by the gate all night.

We loved the sun, the food, the friendly Kenyans, the beautiful beaches, the exploring and most importantly family time.

Such a great holiday in a great place. Thank you to all the wonderful staff - in particular Eunice who was available whenever we wanted any advice about exploring or shopping or just about anything, including help with Swahili.

Top tip regarding shopping for souvenirs - they are everywhere! The Kenyans work very hard at presenting their wares and at selling them which can be a little intimidating at times. However they were friendly at all times.

In summary - fantastic.

We were a group of different age groups from 13 to 73 and the house was great for us all. Very spacious so we didn't get in each other's way. Lovely pool where you could even swim at night. Fans in all the bedrooms, wifi, satelite TV, great cook and friendly capable housekeeper. Lovely gardens and it was very peaceful with just two villas on the compound. All they need is another bathroom upstairs. A short drive from the beach and to shops and fresh fish were brought to the door.

“Great place for family with kids”
Reviewed October 20, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed in the villa with our two small children. The staff was very accommodating, preparing all the meals and helping arrange the bedrooms and baby cot.The pool is perfect for children. The chef prepared excellent fresh seafood meals including lobster, crab, prawns, and fish. The house is a bit difficult to find the first time so it is best to arrange your airport pickup through the house staff, who will make sure a taxi is waiting for you at the airport and will deliver you to the door of the villa. The beach is a manageable walk away for adults (15-20) minutes but too far for young children to walk so the staff helped us arrange transport each time we wanted to go to the beach and this worked out perfectly. If you are booking this villa you should know that it is not a beach front property, but it is only a five minute drive to the beach. All in all a good place to stay, the pool at the house is really excellent for kids and adults and the villa is comfortable and well looked-after. There are ceiling fans in every room that keep the villa cool. The outdoor veranda is furnished and ideal for having your morning coffee or late evening drinks. Satellite TV and high speed WI-FI are also nice bonuses.

“Lovely stay”

Despite arriving extremely late at night, the team was there to receive us at the villa, and even cooked for us! They offered to pick us up, though we had our own transport - only hitch was that we got lost for a good half hour as we could not understand the phone directions we were getting - language barrier maybe?!?! The layout of the house is great with plenty of space in the house. We spent most of our time on the veranda enjoying the cool breeze (day and night) coming from the ocean and the overhead fan....playing our games and music. Although the 2nd villa in the compound was occupied by another group, we never felt like privacy was invaded as the flowers and trees were strategically located to make you feel cocooned in your own little private world. The pool was fantastic and clean, and we had a chance to enjoy it both day and night, playing water polo or just lazing around. We always had a huge pile of towels at our disposal for the bathroom, the pool, and we even got crisp fresh ones to go to the beach with!
The beach is only a few minutes walk from the villa and is not crowded - watching the sunset was spectacular. There are very many places to enjoy water sports, dining and shopping, but the best part was just hanging out at the villa.
It was a fantastic vacation, and really important was that the personnel were always there for us, while being very discreet to afford us maximum privacy.........Moses, a fantastic cook who always had ideas of what he could cook for us and even did shopping (the poor guy woke up at 2am on the day we were leaving to ensure that we left after having a "fresh breakfast"....bless your heart!); Eunice a wonderful housekeeper who kept the rooms and bathrooms clean at all times while keeping out of our way; the security team always around the compound, lending a hand, opening the gate, etc; and most importantly Silvio.....could never ask for a better owner who ALWAYS was at hand to respond to my e-mails no matter the numerous questions I had, and whatever time of day - Thank you Silvio!!! He even sent over an inflatable slide for kids to play with at the pool!
All in all, a fantastic holiday location.....but the bugs.... (shudder)....especially while sleeping in the upper bedrooms - I know it goes with the coastal location, but it could be improved. Again, thank you!!
