A luxurious eco-house with sunset views to the horizon over a tropical lagoon, set in a tranquil spot amongst the trees, birds & villages - complete with full time cleaner and cook.

We spent over a year designing our dream house - it worked!

This price is for the whole four-bedroom (sleeps 12), luxurious house with 3 permanent staff (cook, cleaner etc) set in tropical gardens with coconuts, cashews and mango trees, overlooking Mida Creek (a tropical lagoon), minutes drive from one of the best beaches in Kenya. This is a magical house in one of the nicest, most peaceful spots on the coast.

The house is the culmination of a lifelong dream - to build a tropical, sustainable, paradisiacal retreat in this part of the world. At night, you won't see a single other artificial light as you drift off to sleep.

The house overlooks the waters of Mida Creek – a huge, stunning mangrove-fronted lagoon where you can swim, watch local fisherfolk, take dugout canoe trips (the house has its own), watch ospreys, flamingos, hawks and other wildlife, go fishing, or just listen to the sounds of the local people who have been living in the same way for thousands of years. There's nowhere else quite like it.

The house is set in a 5.2 acre fenced plot filled with cashew nut trees and a number of other smaller trees we've planted. The plot is nestled among local villages, palms and lush vegetation. It feels like it is in the bush (that’s a good thing!), although it is only a 10-minute drive from half a dozen excellent, lively restaurants and bars in Watamu, a 25-minute drive from Malindi airport and a 2-hour drive from bustling Mombasa. We can arrange for you to hire a car if needed.

The staff members who look after the house full-time are Joseph – an excellent cook who has been preparing food for foreign visitors for more than 30 years - Morris, the cleaner, caretaker and gardener, and David who's on hand at night. There is no extra cost for these guys, although they appreciate a tip. Joseph can cook a huge number of different types of food from vegetarian pies to meat and super-fresh seafood feasts, as well as baking his own bread. He is happy to go and do the shopping for you, if that's easier. Morris will help you with anything you need, from cleaning to babysitting to fetching coconuts from the trees for you for a midday cocktail.

The house consists of a large open building, which has two large bedrooms - the upstairs room (bedroom 3) has 2 double beds (one perched in the roof and one kingsize), and the downstairs room (bedroom 4), which is completely netted can be used either as a chill-out room or a bedroom with 2 double beds (see photos). In the remainder of this bit of the house there is a large living area and dining table in which to chill and relax - with fitted sofas, a hanging chair, and hammock - in addition to a kitchen, storeroom and a toilet / shower.

Right next to the main building there is a 10-meter high 'tower' building with a funky spiral staircase that consists of an open chill-out area downstairs and two bedrooms both king-sized double beds and ensuite bathrooms with amazing views the higher you go, and a flat roof, with a panoramic view over the whole creek and to the horizon beyond, which is a perfect place for sunbathing, yoga, beers or evening dinner. The sun sets on the other side of the creek in the evening - this is unique to this house as most of the other houses in the region have eastward views.

We've taken pains to try to reduce the impact on the local environment with the house. That doesn't mean it's not effortlessly luxurious – it is, but we are not fans of air-conditioning and swimming pools. All rooms have excellent ventilation and fans, if needed. For us, taking a sunset dip in the creek in the evening as the sun goes down is way better than chlorine and pumps.

The beach is a 10-minute drive away and you can also swim in front of the house around high tide (2x per day).

Watamu is famous for its 7-km long white sand beach and pristine turquoise ocean that caters for world-class kitesurfing, diving, fishing, sailing, kayaking, waterskiing and more. In the town there are many excellent restaurants and bars, and even more in nearby Malindi.

Other local adventures include the Gede ruins, the Arabuko-Sokoke forest, cycling, Tsavo national park (2-hour drive and one of the best game parks in Kenya), bird walks, surfing, the ice-cream shop and much, much more.

There is also internet and mobile access at the house if you buy a dongle locally. We've also left a Bose stereo for ipods/iphones and computers and all linen and towels as well as cleaning etc is included. There is also a karum board, backgammon, some DVDs if you have a computer/player and a number of books.

Quite simply, it's one of the most relaxed and peaceful places on earth. Enjoy!

I've used airbnb for a while and had only positive experiences. I live and work in the UK, but my heart is normally in Kenya and I spend lots of time working on excuses to get back there. I'm a social entrepreneur and have started a few different businesses in the environmental sector. I love building things that make the world a bit better and a bit simpler - a hard balance sometimes. I believe perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but nothing left to take away.
