Thor's Stone House, Mombasa

Set in the leafy suburbs of Nyali, is to be found a sprawling 5 bedroomed villa in Mombasa. Thor’s Stone House and its inhabitants; Peter and family will make you feel right at home as you grapple with the stifling heat in Mombasa or idle away in the beach which is within walking distance.

Peter is a lover of expeditions, climbing mountains and camping and is currently working with various counties in the Coast to engage idle youths and help them realise their potential. He lives with his wife together with their school-going two boys aged 13 years and two and half years. The older boy is an expert in playing tennis while the small warrior in the house has just joined baby class.

The rooms are a mixture of en suite master bedrooms with king size and twin beds while some have sharing bath facilities. In addition, the security is top-notch as the house is watched by security guards who make use of closed circuit television cameras.

Boredom is not an issue as you can head to Mamba Village to see crocodiles, enjoy an afternoon at Haller Park which has a variety of animals like hippopotamus, tortoise, buffalos and get a wonderful opportunity to feed giraffes in the evening or pass by Nyali Mall for some leisure shopping and a drink in some of the best secure entertainments joints.
