Wazi Dubu House, Kenya
Wazi Dubu is the southern-most property on Kizingoni Beach. Soft yellow walls, colourful shrubs and tall coconut palms around the central pool courtyard, allow complete privacy and security, while the three elevated communal areas – the breakfast roof, sundowner baraza and main dining terrace – provide huge views of the ocean, the beach and the passing dhows. There are bookshelves and bars, intriguing local artifacts, generous pots full of bright green ferns and palms, and the pool has floating beanbags! At the back of the garden is a child’s climbing frame which has been converted into a fabulous massage area, also perfect for yoga. A separate kitchen, with a laundry and staff quarters stands behind the house.
