Unique House on the Secure Private estate-Vipingo Ridge with Swimming pool, within Walking distance to Club House and plenty of on site Activites, Access to private Beach Club & discounted rates on the world class Golf Course. The perfect place to spend a family holiday
Newly built villa, beautifully designed in a Traditional Arabic style with walls built of local, coral stone & large shuttered windows opening out to breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.
If Dar Saba is not available for your dates we also have another property 'Little Dar Saba' which can be found on my profile. It has two bedrooms and can be hired alongside Dar Saba for larger groups.
The restored ‘swahili’ main door opens in to a courtyard where the sun filters through palm fronds on to a trickling fountain. The ground floor has both indoor & outdoor dining and opens out on to the terrace and lap pool. A fully equipped, modern kitchen, incorporates a gas cooking island, oven & double door fridge. There is also a separate staff kitchen.
A sweeping staircase leads up to a sunny roof terrace with al-fresco dining, bar & outdoor gas grill. This is the perfect spot for ‘sundowners’ with stunning views over the lake and palm fringed valleys beyond. An outdoor 'baraza' bed provides the perfect private spot to read a book or take a siesta.
The 4 large double bedrooms, 2 of which are on the ground floor off the courtyard and 2 on the first floor all have king beds, draped mosquito nets, ceiling fans & stylish en-suite bathrooms. The master bedroom features a built in terrazzo king bed and a huge bathroom with a large stone bath and shower.
The landscaped tropical gardens are surrounded are separated from the pristine fairways by a stream that flows in to a lake teaming with birdlife. A resident monitor lizard can often be seen sunning itself on the opposite side of the lake! In the evening honeysuckle that grows up the outside walls fills the courtyard with its enchanting scent.
The Villa is within walking distance to the Club House, which is open all day for Breakfast, lunch, dinner & snacks. Also within easy walking distance is the Sundowner bar with a large communal 50m lap pool and children play round. Pizza's are available from the pizza oven on Wednesdays and the weekends.
Additional rooms can be taken in the nearby guest house 'Little Dar Saba' or hotel Villas to increase accomodation capacity if required. Although the Golf course is outstanding , there are plenty of other activities on offer including horse riding, bike hire with a number of scenic bike/jogging trails. Included in the cost of your stay is access to ‘The Private Beach Club’ just 5 mins away, which is located on one of the most pristine beaches along the East African coast. We highly recommend lunch at the fabulous 'Beach Bar' restaurant which serves excellent seafood and homemade pasta. This part of the coastline is part of a protected marine conservancy and has fantastic snorkelling along the tropical reef.
There are a handful of local grocery stores/markets & good restaraunts nearby full details of these are found in the welcome pack. Mtwapa (20 mins drive) and to the North, Kilifi (15-20 mins drive).
Общение с гостями
This Villa is totally private and you will have the property to yourself. Abdallah and or Ali, one of the house keepers will take care of all cleaning/laundry. They can also set tables for meals, do basic meal preparation and help with cooked breakfasts. A chef can be hired in daily if and when required but we do require a bit of notice to find someone especially during peak season this can be more difficult! In house massages & beauty treatments can also be arranged in the privacy of the Villa during your stay.
Другие важные подробности
Please note the location shown on Airbnb is not accurate and Dar Saba is on Vipingo Ridge which is 15 minutes north of Kilifi off the main Mombasa Malindi highway.
Safarilink Airline flies direct from Wilson Airport in Nairobi in to Vipingo Ridge daily. Your hire car can be dropped at the airstrip for you and it's a 5 min drive up the hill to the house. We highly recommend this for a stress free journey! Alternatively you can fly in to Mombasa airport or Malindi Airport and drive a hire car or get a taxi from there. Vipingo Ridge is a welcome, stress free, gated community far removed from any reported security issues.
Whilst children and babies are very welcome and we have spent many happy holidays in this house with our young boys. I feel it is important to note that there is an open stair case and obviously there is a lot of water around! So small children do need to be supervised. I also recommend that the front windows in the master bedroom are kept closed if you have young children.
Vipingo Ridge is a secure development with tight security, therefore, please notify the main gate +(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) and +(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) if you are expecting visitors during your stay.
In order to not disturb our neighbours whilst we want you to enjoy yourselves we ask that you do not play loud music after 11:00pm
Please keep your valuables on you or lock them away in one of the chests.
