All About Nderit House

“We had such an amazing time at Nderit House that we struggled to leave. Everything about your home was superb! Our family all fell in love with it and we will definitely visit again. You also have amazing staff who took very good care of us. Asante sana!”

Nderit House was designed and built by an Anglo-Kenyan family as their holiday home-from-home in the early 1970s. A much-loved coastal retreat for close to fifty years, it was extensively refurbished and extended in 2021 and now features a series of stunning swimming pools and water features.

Nderit sits among ancient baobab trees in one of the most sublime and peaceful settings on the Kenya coast. Set back from the sea in order to catch both the North and South trade winds, Nderit’s airy and elevated position position ensures breathtaking views over the Indian Ocean towards the white sands of Bofa Beach.

Nderit’s secluded and colourful 4-acre plot is located just a 5-minute stroll from to the mouth of Kilifi Creek and Wilson’s Beach. Kilifi Creek is home to 3 Degrees South Water Sports Centre, AquaVentures Dive Centre, Sunset Dhow trips and much more.

The experienced Nderit team, several of whom have worked at the house for decades, are on hand to make your holiday one to remember. The house manager will help you plan your stay and is on call to help with queries during your time at the house. The in-house team – consisting of a butler, 3 housekeepers, a chef and a gardener – are always on hand look after your day-to-day needs.

Destination - Kenya Coast
Location - Kilifi Plantation

Nderit House sits quietly within Kilifi Plantation, an area of low-key sisal cultivation and dairy farming to the south of Kilifi Creek where the Goshi River reaches the Indian Ocean. The small and bustling town of Kilifi sits on the northern shore of the creek, a kilometre or two away from the house. The historic city of Mombasa, the ancient ruins at Gedi and the 11,000-acre Arabuko Sokoke Forest Reserve – all make interesting day trips and are within about an hour’s drive of the house.

The best golf course in the East African region, the PGA Baobab Course on Vipingo Ridge is just 30 minutes south of the house by car. A wonderful setting for players of all abilities, the course is located high on the ridge allowing golfers to play in cooler conditions than on other courses at the Kenyan coast. It offers spectacular views, numerous water features and challenges even the best golfers. Riding is also available at Vipingo on good calibre horses.

There are daily flights on ALS from Nairobi’s Wilson Airport to the airstrip at Vipingo Ridge which is about 30 minutes away by road from Kilifi. Private and charter flights can also land at Vipingo or at the Kilifi Plantation Airstrip close to the house. Kilifi is about one hour’s drive from Mombasa to the south and a little less from Malindi to the north. Malindi and Mombasa airports have several scheduled flights each day to and from Nairobi, other Kenyan locations and Zanzibar.
