The Cliff House enjoys a spectacular location overlooking the Mwaluganje Elephant Sanctuary and adjoining the Shimba Hills National Park. The close proximity to Diani Beach means that the Cliff House is an ideal retreat for those who wish to enjoy and experience nature at its best within easy reach of the beach. Come for a couple of days to relax before or after your beach holiday. The quiet ambiance, the beautiful sunsets and moonrises together with the expansive views will not disappoint.
The Cliff House is the perfect place to relax before you fly home, for a romantic weekend away, a yoga retreat or for your executive team to have an off site retreat within easy reach of Mombasa or Diani.
From the huge balcony of the Cliff House you may be lucky enough to watch elephants bathing in the river below, be enthralled by the antics of dozens of bird species or just enjoy being surrounded by nature as you sink into the alchemy of our Arcadia.
The Cliff House itself nestles into the cliff face, with the rock integrated into the house. The Swahili style interiors, and ‘eco’ rooftop garden further enhance the feeling that the house melds into the cliff. The infinity pool overlooking the elephant reserve guarantees that you will feel at one with the nature below you. In addition there is an amazing BBQ area with its own seating and dining table – 10 people can dine there comfortably.
There’s a fully equipped kitchen, a large living area with inside dining. Out on the big balcony there’s another large dining table and relaxing couch – you can eat while you enjoy the stunning views over the elephant sanctuary.
The main bedroom, Arcadia Suite, on the same floor has a king-size bed with en-suite bathroom and built-in wardrobe. The living & dining areas of the house and the Arcadia Suite are wheel-chair friendly. On the lower level there’s a spectacular infinity swimming pool that stretches out into the void above the sanctuary.
There are 2 bedrooms downstairs with extra-long king-size double beds, en-suite bathrooms and built-in wardrobes. Both bedrooms have terraces next to the pool with a sunbed for bathing or relaxing as you sip a cool drink.
There are 2 other levels, entered from outside: the third level has a small bedroom with a double bed and with its own bathroom – we call this the ‘Cave Room’ and again from the bed and the shower you have amazing views.
On the 4th level down there is the ‘River Suite’ – a self contained mini suite with kitchen, bathroom and bedroom and 2 sitting areas – all looking right out over the elephant sanctuary and the river (also available for rent separately as a stand alone Suite).
The house is rented on a self-catering basis. If you wish, we can offer the services of our chef (a small surcharge applies) to spoil you even more as he cooks your meals. Daily housekeeping services are provided.
