“This is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the coast. We had a lovely vacation and thoroughly enjoyed the house, pool, and proximity to the beach. I would love to come back some day!”

It’s hard to imagine a better, happier or better-run family beach house than Tomuru Villa. The accommodation is comfortable, bright and airy throughout and the staff are exceptionally capable, friendly and experienced. There’s a fantastic pool and direct access to the beautiful unspoilt sands of Turtle Bay.
On the First Floor of the house there are four double and twin bedrooms – two of the doubles have ensuite bathrooms and the other two twin rooms share a bathroom and separate WC. One double and one twin bedroom also have air-conditioning, and all of the rooms are well-ventilated with big mosquito nets and powerful ceiling fans and spacious cupboards and wardrobes.
The three front bedrooms also have access onto the breezy balcony and veranda which runs the entire width of the house – here there are comfortable and inviting day beds and sofas and lovely views of swimming pool, gardens and ocean.
Downstairs there is a large, open-plan living room and dining room looking out onto the swimming pool and garden terraces. Outside is a veranda with dining table and bar area, and around the pool are lovely big baraza sofa seats – with shady spots to lounge and relax in at all times of the day.
“We leave with eternal memories of Kenya and Tomuru House and – most importantly – of Lois, Samuel and all the wonderful staff who made our visit extra magical.”

The pool is filtered sea water – always buoyant, warm and refreshing. There are steps down into the shallow end – ideal for children – and an underwater seating area in the deep end. In the garden there is an alfresco freshwater beach shower and beach towels are also supplied.
From the pool and gardens, steps and a path lead down to the gorgeous and often deserted beach less than 100 metres away. One of the many pleasures of a stay at Tomuru is long beach walks in the cool of the early morning or late afternoon. All kinds of water sports – from kite-surfing to snorkelling to deep sea fishing – are available nearby.
Everyone who stays at Tomuru makes special mention of the exceptional staff and service. House and guests are very well looked after by charming housekeeper Lois and experienced chef Samuel. The team also includes a pool man and gardener and night watchman. House manager Victor who lives nearby is on-hand to meet and greet guests and organise shopping and airport transfers.
The house is very well equipped and organised. A daily laundry service is included in the rental and the staff will arrange deliveries of the freshest and tastiest fish and seafood. The kitchen is well set-up with several fridges and freezers, an ice-making machine and more.
“Tomuru is a little piece of paradise. Set on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world (in my opinion!), the house is perfectly equipped and staffed. The pool is phenomenal, the rooms are spacious and well furnished, with mosquito nets, fans and air-conditioning. All of the house staff went out of their way to make our stay very special. Truly a magical place.”
