Our Coliving home will be in Watamu, an authentic village situated on the spectacular Indian Ocean. It's a mix of a traditional Bantu village, meets little Italy, meets Swahili. A blue paradise offering just the right amount of calm and adventure. This chapter is perfect for beach lovers, sunny days, and quiet nights. The accommodation is great for epic group dinners and amazing group activities.

We have five stunning villas all within one minute walk from each other. All villas come with a pool , washer, and generator, as well as indoor and outdoor living and dining rooms. They are also a five minute walk from a pretty white sand beach. All rooms are ensuite and have a small desk and chair. 

Our shared rooms will come with the benefit of AC.

This chapter might not be for people seeking to party, who want the hustle of cities or who are seeking the comfort of high-end restaurants or cafes on every street corner.

Good to Know

This is going to be our first time in Watamu: Expect weekends filled with local drumming sounds, sunset dhow boat experiences, cultural immersions, ancient Swahili ruins trip, group family dinners at local restaurants, dance nights in town or even a Safari.

With Watamu being a coastal village, sometimes we experience power outages. Due to this, we always provide personal data hotspots in the main work areas to ensure you're covered in the case of dropouts. Therefore we recommend this chapter for members with a work schedule that is not heavily relying on calls. We do have 50mbps WiFi (the average in Mombasa is 8mbps), just be prepared that the bandwidth might vary throughout the day.

Bring a go with the flow attitude. Watamu has a wonderful slow paced vibe, much like any laid back coastal town. Things might not always go to plan, but we can assure you, you will have more beautiful experiences by learning to let loose and enjoy it for what it is.

Having a car is helpful but not the only way to get around. There are taxis available locally at affordable rates, and there are also more local transportation options available. This includes TukTuks, three-wheeled enclosed bikes, and motorbikes that are locally referred to as a Bajaj. Bikes can be hired locally and are a fantastic way of exploring the surrounding area.
