BOB is one of the last 1950s beach bungalows on Shelley Beach in Likoni. There are three houses on the property for guests and more than an acre of gardens including a cozy hammock to swing in the breeze. Less than one minute walk to a beautiful beach. The art/yoga room is a great space for creativity and movement and to be inspired by nature. This listing is for a private room with a full size bed and an optional single can be added. There are 4 additional bedrooms available for singles.
BOB is a special place. It is where people can relax, read a book by the ocean, paint a picture, or swing in nature in peace and quiet. For beach lovers, the whitest sand beaches in Mombasa are less then a minute walk away. There is plenty of space for children and playing. Our own family lives onsite, however we travel frequently. Eric, the dad and ex-Les Roche hotelier will be you host and cater to your needs. This place was his childhood home and he has through knowledge of the area and its offerings.
Guests will have access to most everything. We have a reasonably stocked and furnished kitchen. You can do your own cooking or we can provide you with meals at an extra fee. The living room has two dreamy day couches where we highly recommend losing yourself in a book and dozing off. There is one and a half baths with a shower and newly refinished bathtub. The garden and yard are spacious and home to many creatures and flowering trees. Some of the trees are hundreds of years old. The art/yoga/dance studio is openly available with love and respect for anyone who wants to move, exercise, or be creative.
We will be around and there is always help available.
