“The Cliff house is an amazing place to stay for peace and serenity. The view is spectacular even though we were there in dry season. We spent a lot of time in the pool just chilling and enjoying the quiet. Marie is a great host and if you go make sure to go see the wonderful things she is accomplishing at her school.”
“From the moment I wrote to Marie, to the moment we left the Cliff House was so smooth and easy! We absolutely loved every second of our visit. The house is amazing.... the views are to die for, the infinity pool with jaw-dropping views, to the warm, little touches throughout the house. There are so many great spots to enjoy and pass the time; from the sun-beds beside the pool, to the oversized porch with sofa and outdoor dining table where we had all of our meals. Marie is very kind and thoughtful and also arranged for a private chef during our stay and he prepared the most delicious food. Cliff House Is the perfect place to relax and unwind for a few days. We were sorry we didn't stay longer! I highly recommend a visit to this special spot in Kenya. Thank you to Marie and her wonderful staff, Wendy, Walker and Kyan”
“Marie’s Cliff house is the perfect getaway. Communication with her was quick, she is very responsive and hospitable. The house is set on a cliff, with a balcony overhanging the valley, and is the stuff of movies, a divine view over the reserve! We hiked in the hills to the waterfall nearby, swam In the infinity pool. The nature is enjoyable and calming. The chef made us exquisite Indian good, all in a great stay and we will for sure be back. Thanks Mari ”
“Marie's place is every bit as gorgeous as the pics show - especially the views from the infinity pool. Marie was really helpful with local information, numbers, advice etc. too, Highly recommended!”
“My second rave review. This house is exquisite! The view is outstanding. Sunsets are mind-blowing. Whole house beautifully and tastefully furnished. The pool gorgeous. Sylvano the cook super helpful and excellent, all staff lovely. Marie is a wonderful host. Not enough superlatives. It was my birthday weekend and we had so much fun in that great pool and also enjoyed a barbecue in the bbq area. This time we didn't see elephants just below the house like we did last time, but we went into the nearby Shimba Hills national park. Very pretty park with amazing trees and lots of great vistas. We saw bushbuck, impala, warthog, buffalo and kongoni. Can't wait to go back again.”
“An absolutely stunning house in an incredible setting, a perfect place to rest and relax after our busy safari in the Lumo Conservation area in Tsavo West. Thank you to Shine the Housekeeper and Sylvano the Chef, they kept the house spotlessly clean and kept us very well fed on delicious food. One of the most spectacular views I have ever seen from an infinity pool!!! Thank you Marie ”
“We had a great time at this property. Super nice location watching sunsets over the Savannah. We’re a little sad we didn’t see any elephants though. Thanks again.”
“Maison avec vue a couper le souffle ! Parfait pour 3,4 jours car il n y a pas grand chose a visiter aux alentours. Voiture obligatoire. Ne pas hesiter a profiter des services de Silvanas le cuisinier, il cuisine divinement bien..nous avons eu la chance de rencontrer Marie qui vous fait vous sentir peu utile en ce bas monde tellement son projet et ses actions sont admirables.. une vraie belle rencontre, merci Marie !”
“It's difficult to find words... Marie's house is incredible. It's a dream. More than a dream. The place is contemplative and peacefull. The view is spectacular and you will wake up the morning with birds songs. Sometimes, you can see elephants from the swimming pool. Just awesome. And Sylvano is here to prepare you delicious meals. What else ? Marie is very friendly, and always available to give you good advice :-) We have just one regret : not having met her. ”
“Cliff House is an absolutely beautiful home surrounded by nature and offering the most fantastic views overlooking the Elephant Sanctuary. From the moment we walked through the door we felt completely at home and thoroughly spoilt. Our daughter jumped for joy as she ran from room to room and then squealed with delight when she saw the amazing pool. A truly perfect place - effortlessly beautiful, wonderfully welcoming, brilliantly located and equipped with everything one could possibly want. A happy place indeed. We have promised our daughter that we shall ask Marie if we can return soon. Thank you Marie ”
“This is one of those places where the mean selfish devil that resides in some of us is worried that the amazing place they have just stayed will get so popular that they won't be able to get an available date in the future! Arcadia Cliff House is just stunning! It didn't take us longer than 45 minutes to get there from Diani which was the first nice surprise. The second was that there was a herd of elephants grazing just a couple of hundred metres below the house when we arrived and the third and best was that it was even nicer than it looked in the pictures. The view is absolutely incredible. The house is tastefully furnished throughout with a lot of whitewashed furniture on nero floors in warm buttermilk colours. There is a huge veranda wrapped around the front with a long dining table and a relaxing sofa bed. All bedrooms are ensuite (comfy mattresses and crisp white linen) - two bedrooms are built either side of the spectacular pool that seems to be suspended over the cliff. We spent a lot of time in that pool and had an enormous amount of fun over our 3 day stay. We decided to hire the cook that the charming and helpful owner, Marie, offers and that was a very good call - Sylvano was superb and a lovely guy. The kitchen is well equipped and there is also a nice barbecue area outside. What more can I say except we can't wait to go back!”
“Arriving in the Arcadia Cliff house you are overwhelmed by the beauty of the place – the position, the house, the tasteful interior design, the extraordinary view – the photos have been promising but are over-exceeded by the reality; this is a perfect place to reduce speed, to focus on yourself and for a personal retreat; you are surrounded by an architectonic gem and a beautiful nature; we have known Marie, a fantastic person, who has built up this place (together with her partner) as well as an astonishing private school for integrated medicine in the nearby town Kwale, we are very grateful for knowing the house and herself, thank you very much!”
“Both the design and location of Cliff house are simply stunning and we felt so lucky to stay here. The views across the elephant sanctuary below, vast and beautiful. It’s a landscape to get lost in. Swimming in the infinity pool is magical. The house grows out of the rock face and the interiors calm and cool with some lovely lamu influenced design touches. Communication with Marie was easy and everything went smoothly. A remarkable place. Thank you! ”
“I think Marie is wonderful!!”
