Sandarusi House is situated about 20 km south of Mombasa, on Tiwi beach, high above the Indian Ocean on an old coral bed with great vistas and a cool sea breeze.

The house characteristics are coastal Arab with 6 large en suite airy rooms, each with an individual and unique charm/ identity. The large rooms, open verandahs, garden, pool among the Baobabs and Tiwi Beach are favorable to visitors of all ages. The pool and the exposed reefs and their rock pools, as well as the safe and secure cool environment of Sandarusi make it a haven for children.

Fresh sea fish, prawns, and other shellfish are brought to the door by the local fishers, as is a great selection of seasonal coastal fruit and vegetables by the farm traders. Sandarusi is the perfect place to totally unwind, with long beaches for walks, and clear warm water to swim in. It’s a home from home – why not make it yours?

About Us

Family home
Sandarusi is a family coastal home; Archdeacon Walter Low and his wife Nell bought the original house and land in the 1940s, it was just a simple coastal home where their children and grandchildren could spend holidays together. It was transformed from an old mud and wattle house to this beautiful Arab creation in 1997. The house has been loved and adored by three generations of the Low family.

The House Team
The house is run by a small team of four.
