Villa African Dream has a touch of 'Beyond Africa / Out of Africa'. The layout is identical to Villa Cheetah.
The furniture is beautifully hand carved and very cosy!
You will have a cook and a housemaid.
Our complex has its own generator, so we are not affected by the frequent power outages.
We also have private water well, which also feeds our pool.
NEW: Free Wi-Fi (wireless) internet access for guests travelling with their own laptop (or smart phone)
You stay in a beautiful African house with the typical high Makuti roof (palm thatch). Enjoy exotic pure feeling of Africa, but stay comfortably European. All bedrooms are air-conditioned and each house has a safe.
In the middle of the property is the large swimming pool and now there is even a second pool for children and even a partition for smaller children. Nearby is a round pavilion (covered dining area), a large barbecue grill and a big pond with many fishes and waterfalls. Everything is beautifully lit at night and looks great!
A gardener maintains the lush, tropical and 5500 m² large garden and pool, a maid takes care of orderliness and cleanliness and a chef cooks only for you according to your preferences. You just have to buy groceries; the cook will also accompany you. 24 hrs security, at night the complex is guarded by a night watchman. Fee for the staff is included in the rent.
All the houses have solar panels, so there will no more be any power outages!
Safaris in Kenya:: You can not miss the cradle of humankind without going on an amazing safari!
There are 16 national parks, which are often very different in flora and fauna. Morning you will be picked up at the house and you go on the jeep, for example, to the Tsavo National Park. You can also fly in to the Masai Mara from the small airstrip, a very special experience!
Who would not want to stay in a lodge or tented camp, just drive to the nearby Shimba Hills and admire the elephants and various animals there. Then you can come back home in the evening.
Diving and water sports:: The next diving centre is right next to us. You can bring your own equipment or rent here. If you have never dived before, you can learn in the diving school. There are various tours, like, wreck diving. The whole coast is protected by an offshore coral reef, so there are no high waves or sharks. In the coral reef, it can also be great fun snorkelling or diving.
Staff, excellent. Grounds, excellent. Location, excellent. All the best!!
We stayed in a 2 bedroom house with a bath, kitchen, living room and lovely covered porch. We had a fantastic cook, Celestine, who is included in the price. She cooked 3 healthy, delicious meals for us each day. There is a daily cleaner, Mary, and she did a great job. There is a grocery within walking distance and a bigger one a Tuk-tuk ride away. There are 3 houses in the compound and we were the only ones there, so it was very quiet. There are 2 pools also. There is a guard 24 hours a day.
There is a road that leads down to the beach, we wished we had stayed at a place on the beach, since it was very hot when we were there but there were always ocean breezes. The compound tended to be hot, there is air conditioning in the bedrooms and we spent a lot of time there.
Ancora una volta a Marula..per oltre due mesi !
Non posso che confermare tutto quello che ho già scritto in questi anni.
Grande merito della proprietà è proprio quello di curare le case con attenzione, mantenendo , per quanto possibile in Africa, le strutture ed il giardino in perfetto ordine.
Il personale come sempre molto gentile e collaborativo, e la manager che si occupa del compound in loco è sempre pronta ad aiutare ed intervenire negli inevitabili piccoli problemi che possono sorgere.
Che dire...secondo noi è una soluzione ottimale sotto ogni punto di vista.
We loved our stay at Marula Park Villas. The facility was quite nice & the staff couldn't have been nicer. The villa was clean with a full kitchen & the pool was heavenly. Our private cook really spoiled us with fantastic coastal meals. 40 Thieves is so easy to get to as its right next door. Thanks for a great relaxing vacation!
Marula is a brand new place with two lovely houses and a nice swimmingpool, all surrounded by a big garden. The location is very close to the beautiful beach, with the nice beachbar 'Ali Baba & The Fourty Thieves' nearby.
The staff at Marula's is very friendly.
They helped us perfectly by making a nice tour to Shimba Hills.
Despite the last part of the raining season, we enjoyed the days we spent here.
Sono quattro anni che ritorniamo a Villa African Dram, dopo aver soggiornato per due anni a Villa Cheetah nello stesso complesso di tre ville con giardino e piscina condivisa.Quest'anno la nostra permanenza è stata lunga, 50 giorni, ma il giudizio rimane ottimo.
La casa è tenuta bene , il personale simpatico ed attento. La cuoca Celestine cerca di imparare sempre nuove ricette per incontrare i gusti degli ospiti e la sua cucina è veramente buona.
Abbiamo avuto qualche piccolo inconveniente domestico, inevitabile con una permanenza lunga...uno scarico non funzionante, lampadine bruciate, connessione internet non funzionante ....subito risolte con tempestività .
La piscina ed il giardino sono curati benissimo. Molto utile anche il piccolo padiglione per i massaggi, un piccolo ed economico lusso a domicilio !
Biancheria da bagno e da letto in buone condizioni così come le apparecchiature in cucina ( un magnifico frigo nuovo e un set di pentole degne di questo nome !)
I proprietari sono molto gentili e disponibili ad ogni suggerimento utile per la vacanza. Se desiderate un esperienza diversa dall'albergo, molto più personalizzabile non posso che consigliarvi caldamente questa casa ma , direi, tutto il complesso di Marula Park . Desidero anche sottolineare che si trova in una posizione ottimale sia per la spiaggia che per i negozi ( supermercato a due passi ).
Naturalmente , trattandosi comunque di tre case nel medesimo compound, dovete essere fortunati con i vicini ...
Quest'anno per noi è stato un piacere ed una fortuna condividere, per esempio, un lungo periodo con una simpatica famiglia svizzera !
Un po meno con un gruppo di amici provenienti da Nairobi...ma questa ,appunto , ......è fortuna !
The three houses are located in a 5500 m² big tropical garden with a large pool in the middle, a second pool for children (partly shallow and partly deep), pathways all around, a covered sit out with grill, a massage pavilion and a pond with fish and waterfalls. The Marula Park is located right in the middle of Diani Beach Road, close to the new Baharini shopping centre. From here, everything is easy to reach. Directly behind us is the diving club and the most beautiful beach bar. The incredibly white powder-fine sand beach is 200 metres from the house. From the airport we can pick you up, it is about 45 km away. You'll need 1 to 1 1/2 hours for the trip, but you already have your first sightseeing and travel by ferry. So you are all set upon arrival at the house already for Kenya. Then you can explore the house and the tropical garden with monkeys. Get pampered by our staff and enjoy your well-deserved vacation! Wi-Fi is free. Each house has books, CDs and DVDs and Villa Sarabi has the Wii gaming console.
Other activities: Camel riding, safari tours, snorkelling, jet skiing, kite surfing, deep sea fishing
Golf: The beautiful and well-maintained Leisure Lodge Golf Club is at most 10 minutes away.
