What we like about this property

This blissful compound envelopes you in peace and privacy in one of the most remarkable coastal areas of Kenya. We love the decorative architectural design, the radiant and dreamy minimalism and the sense of ease and harmony here. 

Description

Situated along the famed eastern coast of Kenya an hour outside of Mombasa, this villa is within a short stroll to the stunning Diani Beach and town. Tucked within a gated compound and embedded in nature, you are close enough to feel and  experience the culture and natural environment and just far away enough from  everything to enjoy peace and quiet.

Designed by a German-Kenyan couple, the villa is a laid back but chic oasis where guests feel like they’re at home with friends in an authentic African villa. The traditional structural characteristics are decorative but simple with a streamlined design based on the African values of natural light and wide open spaces. The spacious open plan rooms radiate with light through large banks of windows that reflect the whitewashed walls giving the space a cool an peaceful atmosphere and an indoor/outdoor flow. In the center of the house is a large living space with an open kitchen and dining area that seats up to twelve and is catered by your in house chef.

Decorated in a minimal mix of European and African styles the effect is uncomplicated and relaxing with the rustic wooden furniture in lovely contrast to the smooth architectural design.

With two extra large en suite bedrooms the villa can sleep up to six with plenty of comfort and privacy. There’s a rooftop terrace with beautiful views overlooking the gardens and pool in perfect harmony with the landscape and the nearby sea. 

A unique retreat in an amazing location, this is a place of complete relaxation, perfect for slowing your pace, immersing yourself in the culture and escaping body and soul.    

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Fully staffed with concierge and tour services,  two housekeepers, private chef, two security guards and groundskeepers. Optional car service and driver available. Optional spa and massage services avaialable. Laundry facilities and linens. Wifi throughout, TV with DVD player, stereo audio system.     

AROUND  

The Kenyan coast is a tropical paradise with palm fringed white sand beaches, protected coral reefs and the calm turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. Stretching over twenty five kilometers from the mouth of the Mwachema River to the remote Gazi Bay, the former fishing village of Diani Beach is quickly becoming a chic destination to rival Nairobi for cultural highlights. Be sure to visit the large crafts market in front of Bahari Plaza along with the main strip that features interesting shops and great dining. Head south to the Jadini Forest and don’t miss the Shimba Hills National Park just a twenty minute drive away. Smaller and more compact than many of Kenya’s famous neighboring nature parks, it offers amazing and exotic wildlife safaris. Mombasa is just an hour’s drive and a short ferry ride away and is East Africa’s largest port. A little rough around the edges, it’s nonetheless a fascinating cultural blend of Portuguese, Moorish and British history full of diversity and tradition and teeming with life.

    Lovely lovely lovely; the house is stunning – it’s inspired me to wanna have something similar for myself! Amazing staff, mama Rose is an absolute gem – (the care taker)! You will also encounter Moses (the chef) who is very passionate about his food – & trust me it is a cost cutting measure to eat at home than eating out where they charge tourist prices, of which his meals will not disappoint; & Naomi (the helper), who is always smiles & a joy to be around! Other than The Kenyan power misbehaving on the last few days of my stay, I wouldn’t trade the place for anything else. I totally recommend for those who are looking for a place (& privacy) to stay to pick this spot…you won’t regret it; you’ll be in safe hands. If I had more than 2 thumbs, I’d use them all!

    UNIQUE AND TRUE TO IT,S NAME!! (SEE HOUSE RULES!!)

    The home was lovely and even though Sam was not there, he checked in to make sure I was all set for a wonderful stay and arranged for my airport transportation. He even had a technician come out when I was having trouble connecting to the internet. The house staff was quite friendly and responsive to my needs. They were even kind enough to escort me into town and to the beach. A plus for a solo traveler! The beach is a little distance from the home but the walk is a chance to experience the locals. I was able to see students at the nearby school celebrating the end of the session with an outdoor concert. They were having good time dancing and it made the walk to beach seem a little shorter. The home itself is just as it appears in pictures, open and beautiful. At night, it’s super quiet (unless you visit on the weekend when the sounds from the beach clubs fill the air). Every evening I stretched out on the couch next to the pool and counted the stars and my blessings. It was a wonderful experience. Book and you won’t be disappointed.

    Amazinnnnnnnnnng, beautiful pool villa is awesome and the water is very hot and clean! The decor of the house is majestic oriental style it is not a house but a royal palace. The house staff is lovely Naomi Rose, Suzanne they are all attentive and available. Moses the cook is adorable! His dishes are absolutely delicious! He knows how to do everything! Sam is very available this is a lovely host! Who answer present at the least solicitation. The decor of the house is splendid the garden is huge, an irreproachable lawn! Thanks for the little attention when we arrived, the house was covered with rose petals, hearts on the bed etc. The stay was magical. From now on I have found my house in Kenya Saka House I recommend x1000.

    This house is absolutely incredible. When you walk in you can’t believe the sheer scale of the rooms. Beautifully designed, with the most wonderful pool area and outside chill spaces! Sam is a highly responsive and accommodating host who made sure we were well taken care of. The staff were very attentive and helpful and it was also wonderful to have an in-house cook do shopping and take care of meals. The house is literally walking distance from Ukunda airstrip, which is very convenient for travel. It is about a 30 min walk to the beach from the house, or catch one of the many motorbikes or Tuk-Tuk’s going by regularly. The highlight for me was definitely the pool & garden area. This is the kind of place you could escape for a long weekend and never even leave the property. Thanks Sam!

  • Chika, February 26, 2018

    My stay at Sam’s home was smooth from start to finish. I was picked up from the Ukunda Airstrip by his gracious house manager Rose and she walked me (less than 10 minutes) to the house. The estate looked exactly as it did in the pictures and was as magical and comfortable as I imagined. I was greeted warmly by the house staff and was well taken care of throughout my stay. Susie, was always around to help me with any requests and they ensured I had transportation around town. It is walking distance to the beach but I hired a motorbike driver for my time there which was cheap and convenient. The security guards even went out of their way for me and I just felt like I was caught in a dream. I felt right at home. I was asked in advance what foods I would like purchased for the house (I paid them) and appreciated them rushing to top up the electricity when I used it all up (it was hot!). The bedroom and bathrooms were fit for royalty and they preempted my every need. I did not use the chef since I ate out for all my meals but it was wonderful to know that was an option! Sam called to make sure I checked in alright and upon leaving was adorned with lots of hugs from the staff! It is a cozy oasis in the middle of everything and would recommend it to all who are interested in a memorable getaway. I most definitely will be returning soon!

    The house is so so beautiful! As a photography lover it was a true paradise. And the staff are ever so kind and willing to help. I loved the pool, the fresh juices and yummy pilau cooked by the chef.

  • Hilfreiche B., September 26, 2017

    What an unbelievable experience! The house and staff completely exceeded our expectations. While the beach was a 5 min tuktuk ride away, we didn’t miss it at all. The privacy offered at the house made for a much needed relaxing vacation time not just for us but for our kids. They pretty much lived in the pool all day coming out only to eat and sleep. The quiet allowed us time to unwind. The chef Moses waa able to provide delicious meals at request. Susan, Naomi and Katana gave all the support needed to ensure a relaxing time. And a big thank you to Zablon and Kingi. We never had a worrisome thought while they around. Katharina – thank you again!

  • Aufenthalt, July 14, 2017

    Our stay at Sultanasaka could not have been any lovelier. The house is a dream to come home to after a day at the glorious beach. The staff are so welcoming and wonderful and do absolutely everything to ensure a relaxing and luxurious stay. The food that Moses the cook prepared was fantastic and incredible value. And Rose manages the house and staff and anything you may need with deft and loving efficiency. We will miss them all terribly.

    What should I say, than just the place, the staff and Sam are awesome. I think that Sam’s place is one of the most breathaking houses in the Diani region. The quality – price ratio is ridiculous. I am sure that Sam could let this house for the double price. But he told me that he doesnt want to since he want to make it accessible to everyone. I guess that says everything! Thanks again Sam!

    Sultansaka ist ein unbeschreiblich schöner, versteckter Flecken Erde !!!! Meine Frau und ich sind gerade von diesem 10 tägigen Traumurlaub in Kenia zurückgekehrt und können nur sagen, daß man das Sultansakahaus einmal im Leben gesehen und erlebt haben muß. Der Slogan “Welcome to another World” wurde bei weitem übertroffen.Nicht nur durch das Haus und seine einzigartig geschmackvolle Einrichtung, sondern auch durch das äußerst aufmerksame und herzliche Personal (Rose ist das Herz und die Seele des Hauses- eine ware Perle) Beginnend, durch die von der Vermieterin organisierte Abholung vom Flughafen mit unserem eigenen Mietwagen, den herzlichen Empfang, die Sonnenstunden am Pool in dem wirklich gepflegten Garten, die unvergesslichen Abende auf der Dachterrasse mit abendlicher Meerbrise, den ShoppingService und das unglaublich abwechslungsreiche und suuuuuper-leckere Essen von Absolom dem Koch, den Wasch-und Bügelservice von Rose bis hin zur Massage- es gibt nicht die passenden Worte diesen Aufenthalt zu beschreiben.Zwar liegt Sultansaka nicht wie andere Cottages direkt am Strand, aber jeder zu laufende Meter ist es wert in diesem einmaligen Fereiendomizil Urlaub zu machen.Der nächste Aufenthalt in dieser Oase der Ruhe ist schon geplant.Vielen Dank an das Sultansaka-Team – bis bald Thorben und Marianne

    Für Jeden mit Hang zur Entspannung ein traumhafter Ort. SultanSaka ist hingebungsvoll eingerichtet und liebevoll arrangiert, um einen den Alltag vergessen zu lassen. Man begegnete uns offenherzig und freundlich. Das Essen entspricht dem europäischen Konsens und auf Wunsch wird afrikanische Küche gereicht. Die Umgebung ist attraktiv an Möglichkeiten den Urlaub zu genießen: Strand, Mangroven, Delphine und Meer. Wir haben eine Safari unternommen und Kontakt zu zuvorkommenden Menschen vor Ort. Das Haus ist großzügig konzipiert, modern ausgestatttet mit traditionell kenianischem Einfluss. Hektik und Stress kommen ab dem Flughafen nicht länger auf. Wir planen bereits unsere nächste Ankunft.

    What makes a home special is not the walls or furniture or beautiful things, but soroundit. What makes a home is the people that within it. Rose, Selestin and Violet have made our home and stay within it our family memorable and throughly frahable. Thank you for your warmth and hospitality. God bless you

    This is one of the most amazing places i have ever stayed. The house is very quiet and a great place to recharge. The hospitality was first class and the food was amazing. I love the spaciousness, so please dont add furnitures, except for the roof. Loved it and look forward to staying here again.
