What Past Guests Are Saying
Bello, Comodo, Pulito, un'ottima soluzione per chi vuole vis
Bellissimo! L'ideale per chi come noi voleva visitare il kenya e watamu in modo un po' meno "finto" rispetto ai villaggi...
Le camere sono spaziosissime, pulite, confortevoli e funzionali. Sia le finestre che i letti hanno le zanzariere.
Vengono forniti gli asciugamani con cambio ogni due giorni e la pulizia delle camere viene effettuata giornalmente.
Noi, io mia sorella e i nostri fidanzati abbiamo usufruito della cucina in comune, anche essa pulita e comoda per chi come noi non voleva mangiare sempre fuori (o mangiare a orari prestabliti come nei villaggi)... Inoltre mangiare lÃ¬ e condividere la cucina Ã¨ stata un'ottima occasione per conoscere altre persone, sia altri viaggiatori che i ragazzi che lavorano nel residence.
Il personale Ã¨ cordiale e disponibile.
La posizione in cui si trova il Giriama Ã¨ ottima: a meno di 5minuti dal mare e dal centro di watamu (e dal supermarket piÃ¹ fornito Mama Lucy).
La terrazza Ã¨ un altro punto a favore di questo residence, i grandi divani ci hanno regalato momenti di vero relax!
Consigliato a chiunque voglia viversi il kenya senza spendere troppo per l'affitto di una casa privata (a volte troppo lontane dal centro) e per chi come noi non vuole andare in villaggio.

A beautiful home..away from home :)
My husband and I stayed for a couple of days at Giriama residence and we simply loved it!! The rooms are spacious with a very nice sit-out area, where we enjoyed the cool breeze and had our dinner under the stars. It is just a 2 mins walk to the Watamu beach and 15 mins ride to Gedi ruins. The staff took very good care of us and we were given the option to either cook or order for food. We chose the 1st option and felt absolutely safe when we went out in the dark to the beach or grocery shopping to Mama Lucy's supermarket. While you stay here, there are many activities to choose from...snorkelling at Watamu marine national park, canoeing at Mida creek, visit the turtle rehabilitation centre, shop for handicrafts or paintings. For pet-lovers, there are some really friendly dogs and a cat here.
We would highly recommend a stay at Giriama residence for a cozy stay and we plan to visit them for atleast a week next time!
It is a dream!
I recommend Watamu and Giriama Residence to all travellers!
I spent a hole week here but it isn't enough for such beautiful place as Watamu. There are very good beaches with white sand and light blue water. It is the best place for relax!
Giriama Residence is small and quiet guest house with cosy rooms. The staff is helpful and accommodating. After my holiday here, I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.

We had a wonderful time and we will definetely go back!!
The rooms are very big, bright, clean, airy, with super view from the balcony. The walk to the beach/village is short. The staff is very lovable. The fish we had was very nice, the only thing missing was vegetables.
Its a place I would 100% recommend.
Relax for a good price
For a very good price you get really good quality. The atmosphere is very quiet and the staff is nice.You really feel on vacations. There is kitchen to cook on your own and cold drinks. 3 minutes from the beach.Perfect for a weekend.
Giriama Residence is a very special place. The property is beautiful and the rooms are spacious with huge canopy beds. A gorgeous beach is just a three minute walk away. The staff and Giriama Residence will take wonderful care of you. I highly recommend this place to anyone!
Relaxing, helpful host and great value for money.
Conveniently located guesthouse with a very helpful host/owner - a great value alternative to hotels in the area, whilst still benefitting from its close proximity to the beach and other amenities - restuarants, snake farm etc!

Thanks for the great review. Hope to see you again. Hi from all. Linda
Great place to stay at a great price!
Linda was exceptionally welcoming and it was everything we were looking for in a convenient, cost-effective place to stay in Watamu.
Beautiful place and wonderful staff
Located near the beach and a walking distance from the village. Beautiful place especially if you are looking for peace and quiet. The staff are wonderful and very accomodating. Will definately visit again
