7 of us stayed for the weekend to attend a family wedding. We appreciated having our own space as well as enjoying the comfortable lounge area. The gardens are beautiful and well worth a wander. The birds greet you in the morning and we saw a kangaroo hopping by. The owners provide thoughtful touches (e.g. fresh bread and cheese on arrival, music playing on the stereo) and the house is well equipped with quality fittings. All the bedrooms have spectacular views. It is so easy to relax in such pleasant surroundings.
We booked Magical Malindi for a girlfriends 40th birthday with some friends.
The owners are very nice and the house is very welcoming with cheese and freshly made bread.
The beds were very comfy the linen and towels were great quality and the house had everything you needed for entertaining. We definitely enjoyed our stay thats for sure. Very relaxing for all of us.
I do have a few issues which we were blamed for that is not sitting well with me. When we checked in the fridge was only turned on not long before, we were not told this so we half filled the fridge with items from our eskies. We noticed about 4 hours later the stuff was going luke warm. We called the owners and advised they were going to come and look but there wouldnt have been anything they could have done so we offered to put things in eskies until they send someone out. We took our half of the stuff to see if it would cool nothing then we took a further quarter out and stil nothing so we spent the entire weekend refilling our eskies with ice and having wet soggy packaged food all weekend. The owner agreed to reimburse us for the bags of ice but still has not done so.
The house was also full of ants - kitchen, balconies, bedrooms, bathrooms and we even went and tried to sunbake in the backyard - nope ants everywhere. If you are sitting on the balcony ants all over the handrail - we kept no sweets or drinks there?
I advised the owners of this and i received a text to say the ants are because we had drinks and sweets and the fridge is cool now its been emptied. If we had of been told the fridge needed to be empty for a few more hours to cool we would have done so. They even admitted over the phone they have had this phone call before about the fridge?
We also have not received our deposit back 2 weeks later - extremely frustrating.
I do recommend people to stay there as it was truly amazing but just keep an eye on those smaller things.
