The first version of the house was created in 1992 as a single room home where the Krystall family came for their holidays. Over the years, the house expanded and the family’s “endless summers” – full of nature adventures, healthy-food, and yoga – evolved into today’s Watamu Treehouse.
Watamu Treehouse co-exists with the original coastal forest of Watamu. The towers were built on existing clearings in the forest without cutting trees and with the intention of preserving the forest.
All the rooms have their own unique design and personal touches and allow guests to experience the magnificence of the daily sunrise and sunset, overlooking indigenous forest and the ocean.
Relax on one of the verandas or the sublime rooftop lounging spaces. Grab a fresh smoothie and chill out. This is life in a treehouse. The food is sourced locally, it’s made fresh, it’s delicious and – best of all – it’s served with love.
Activities offered from the treehouse:
Mida Creek is one of the richest jewels in the Watamu area, and some of the most unique activities are our guided trips in Mida – on Kayaks, Stand Up Paddleboards (SUP), walking, swimming, or floating with the tides. The best ways to explore the creek – peacefully paddling and swimming in unspoiled nature. Also on offer is turtle watching, kite surfing, diving and dhow trips on Mida creek. Other sightseeing options nearby are Gede Ruins, Arabuko Sokoke Forest, Bio-Ken snake farm, Shopping at Shakirs, and a day trip to Che Shale or Malindi. The property also boats a beautiful spa.
