Masai Mara villa is very versatile… perfect for a quiet family holiday, or for a bunch of friends looking to party

the villa feels secluded and private, and the beach is very quiet

the villa is managed by the owners - Isai and Olivia - who are very hands-on and helpful

the owners live on the property, but will respect your privacy

there are 3 friendly dogs who look after the villa, so not ideal if you’re afraid of dogs

whilst there are a number of areas to sit and chill, there isn't a dedicated lounge inside the villa


The modern beach house has 4 en-suite bedrooms, each with AC and a fan. An extra bed can be placed in the bedrooms for families or friends that are happy to share. Each room has a sitting area and doors on to the terrace, perfect for sitting and enjoying the uninterrupted views.

The décor in the villa is a lovely combination of fresh airy ocean vibes with bright colours, modern African art and quirky antiques. Fresh with a local twist. An expresso machine, Bluetooth speaker and mini fridge are there for your use.

Masai Mara Villa is fully staffed, and comes with a private chef, butler service, security guards and cleaning ladies.


Masai Mara villa is elevated on a low cliff, making it feel very private. A short flight of stairs takes you down to the white sandy beach… perfect for long walks (you can accompany the villa’s dogs in the early morning) or a swim when the tide is high.

As the tides go in and out you get to experience 50 shades of blue!


Enjoy your meals in the relaxed outdoor dining area, under a makuti thatched roof.

The style of the cuisine can best be described as Swahili Chic, with a fusion of European and local flavours. Each dish is beautifully presented and worthy of Instagram! Expect fresh ingredients and seafood every day.


Masai Mara’s owner/manager Isai is the pioneer of the exclusive Sandbank & Catamaran day clubbing parties… a fantastic experience for a group of friends wanting to dance and party the day away.

Zanzibar based activities, in collaboration with their local partners, can be booked at the villa. 

Activities include:

  • excursions to Jozani forest
  • swimming with dolphins
  • a Stone Tour tour
  • visiting the local seaweed factory in Jambiani
  • snorkelling at Chumbe Island
