David and his wife worked on renovating the kitchen in this Kilifi round cottage so that his mother-in-law can live here in her retirement. The beautiful cottage has panoramic coastal views and plenty of outdoor space to enjoy. The name “Ula” is the Celtic word for “seashell.”
The cottage is about 40 feet in diameter and two floors. There are two bedrooms upstairs, and a tennis court and garden space outdoors. Enjoy the pictures he sent!

What an idyllic spot.
This is a little one-bedroom cottage in Kilifi belonging to a friend.When in Kenya we have been staying in and converting ULA cottage in Klifi, which is a rondavel with a roof space which makes it really special:
We installed the new kitchen from March to May last year, taking all the kit out of our rather upbeat flat in Nairobi, so that the cottage would have a complete kitchen. Put in clothes washing machine upstairs, and a smart TV that gets anything you want off the internet which we installed as a fiber connection with unlimited access. In the July to October visit we put in the new water supply system with a backup tank and pump, separated the electricity supply from the nearby house, and put in an inverter with new batteries (they get a lot of power outs). We are planning a final visit in March to do the last things that will have it become a bit more of a home for Pixies elderly Mum who wants to be there full time and sell the main house. There is a little to do as the main house has a garage and tennis court that go across the plot boundaries, so we need to redraw them with a surveyor and go through the process of re-division, which will be interesting in a third world country. I have already laid out the line of the new road in that is needed and where the new servants quarters need to go on the back of the garage and where the separated Cess system goes (as they are currently linked).Amazingly Celia designed no less than 4 separate look out points around the plot, so that she could have tea in seclusion in various places with various views. The tennis court is excellent as long as you play early or late in the hot days they have there.
