Property Description

Several handmade cottages are dispersed in a wild garden along Wasini's coast line. Special care has been taken to leave the environment as untouched as possible and the bush stretches right into the rocky compound situated beyond the outskirts of the main village.

The owners' love for nature clearly shows in the eco-conscious construction of the cottages. Mainly local material from the island has been used; rough stones and shells make up the walls and the mangrove roof constructions are covered with palm shingles.A solar installation caters for all energy needs. Since there is no ground water on the island and its inhabitants have to entirely rely on rainwater collected in communal cisterns, the cottages are equipped with water saving bucket showers. Waste water is used for plants and solid waste material is composted.

You should not be surprised to encounter Blue monkeys, monitor lizards, chameleons, duikers, cats, birds, and a donkey named Habib.

Each cottage has sea view, a 2 x 2 m (6' x 6') double bed, an additional single bed (incl. mosquito nets), a sitting/writing area, a shower/toilet, and a large roofed terrace including cooking area for self-caterers (fireplace & charcoal cooker).

Egrets and storks feeding in the intertidal zone can be watched from the comfort of chairs set in the shade of a baobab tree, and with a bit of good luck a school of resident Humpback dolphins can be spotted playing around with their befriended bottlenose dolphins.

General:

There is no ferry connecting the mainland with Wasini. Therefore, it is essential that you inform us in advance of your estimated time of arrival and re-confirm your arrival time once you are actually on the road. This way, a boat captain will welcome you in Shimoni to bring you directly to your cottage (10 min ride, KSH 250 pp during day time).

Due to the remoteness of the location, main dishes have to be ordered by 10 am. Please place your order for the day of your arrival in advance. We will send you the menu to your email address once we received your booking. In case you have no access to your email account, please contact us by phone. Water and soft drinks are available but no alcoholic drinks are served our available in any island shop.

Wasini is not connected to the national power grid. Blue Monkey Beach Cottages are equipped with a small solar installation. Besides lighting, it provides energy 24/7 for your small electronic devices such as phones and cameras. However, high energy consuming equipment such as laptops or e-cooler boxes exceeds its capacity.

Latest Review

" The place is a hidden jem in wasini island. We stayed 3 nights in the relaxing cottage. It's environmental friendly place that was bulit was a lot of attention to details. We found it very convenient and there were no issues with electricity or showers. Amina & Feisal who own and run the place were amazing. They are lovely and they did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. The food was great and it was a good opportunity to taste local dishes. It is possible to snorkel from the place "

Things to Note

Although Wasiniâs inhabitants are used for many years to a daily influx of tourists who are on a short stop-over on the island during their day trip including Kisite Mpunguti National Marine Park, every single visitor is still cherished and warmly welcomed. But only the traveler who spends more than just a few hours on the island will fully appreciate its treasures. No cars, no roads, but a lot of wild nature and traditional Swahili culture. The clock seems to tick in a different rhythm here.
