The place where I live is located 20 km north of Mombasa at Mtwapa Creek in a 5 bedroom house ( 4 rooms will be closed during my absence ) with a swimming pool on a    1 acre plot.  A gardener will clean 5 hrs once per week.

To Germany (where I'm from) I fly times a year. The property is part of Mtwapa town, a very lively place but when you close the gate you are in an oasis where you can relax whenever you like. 

I would like to have a COUPLE ONLY to look after my place with experience  with swimming pools. 

If you are golfers yourselves, we have 2 beautiful Golf Clubs which are only about km away.

There are two nice restaurants in the neighbourhood: La Marina and The Moorings. There are plenty of opportunities for you to go deep sea fishing and diving close by. Fishing trips can depart from my jetty - where you can also fish with hand-lines. There is much more to tell and I will gladly answer all your questions.

Looking forward to hear from you :)

“ House sit in Paradise ”

Sit Dates Sep-16-23 - Oct-19-23 Sitter Heart4animals, Member Since Jan-18-20

This was our first-time house sitting for  We stayed at Ingrid’s home for a month.  It was truly a paradise.  The house is gorgeous, the landscaping with a plethora of flowering trees took our breath away, the serene creek (more like a river in size) that was hypnotizing, and monkeys playing in the garden.  What more could you ask for?  

There is a large pool that we took care of per Ingrid’s wishes that was a great way to cool down every day.  Also great for swimming and exercise.  There was a local guy who came by once a week to tidy up the garden, take out the garbage, scrub the sides of the pool and various other tasks.

Ingrid had us come several days early to learn the routine of maintaining her home in Kenya.  Also she showed us around the town pointing out the market, grocery store, good restaurants, etc.  She is a beautiful soul.

This stay was easily our favorite pet/housesitting gig ever.  No hesitations to give the sit a 10/10!
