About Waltersdorf Family
In 40 years of flying as a captain even in the LTU airlines I have seen most of the world. Together with my wife and two sons we have visited many places in the world for holidaying. We can give an opinion where it is beautiful. The retirement is getting closer, and with it also the time of intensive fun.
Waltersdorf Family purchased this House in 2012
Why Waltersdorf Family chose Galu Beach
We have seen very beautiful holiday regions through my profession. After we have spent many years our holiday on Marco Island in Florida, we opted for a more beautiful beach: the Diani Beach. Everything fits just right with the house. One has to search for a long time to find a similar property with as much flair and charm, with such a well-maintained garden close to the beach. The hit is the new Jacuzzi, unique on a private holiday rental property on Diani Beach.
What makes this House unique
Soon after arrival life starts decelerating. You start to really live again, enjoying the boundless tranquillity in the African setting. Fresh food without chemicals, healthy air in a year-round pleasant climate. Here no neighbours disturb you, no car noise. The beach walk is part of the day. We are pleased to now be able to enjoy the private new Jacuzzi in the garden, unique on Diani Beach. The massages on the special massage table is part of the daily ritual, a sample massage is included in the price. The relax - swinging sun bed makes the time spent in a recreation area (spa) complete. Pure luxury to spoil oneself. For muscle training we have a new Adidas home gym and a table football game (Kicker) for fun.

Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property that is caused by you or your party during your stay.
Impossible for older people to reach the beach by walking. Takes at least half an hour to arrive.
You must be prepared to add on to your stay for what electricity you have used. It would take too long a time to tell all that was wrong with this villa.
first of all congratulation that you made this trip to Kenya at your age of 93 years with your neighbour Maggie age 76years.
- With your difficulties to walk you should be happy to have made it to the beach within 30min iso 10min we do. Unfortunately you refused our offer to take a free tuktuk always.
- You never complained during your stay. Even after 30 days Maggie wrote:
Alan and I are well, and enjoying the Kenyan sunshine. Alan is very pleased to hear about receiving a refund from Lions Bluff…
We would like to take this opportunity and to thank you for your kindness shown and your personnel who were so kind during the length of our stay at your place.
Maggie and Alan“
- Even at my visit you mentioned that you prefer food from Anthony iso going to Nomad´s, the best restaurant on Diani Beach.
When you are used with European standards a trip to Kenya could be a real challenge. Our decisions to stay in Villa Soleil made our accommodation a real comfort. We spent 10 days there, during our holiday between years. The villa is above all expectations we had. It has highest standards of services and facilities, outstanding communication with the owner, before and during our stay. Excellent location, not in the crowded area, but just a few minutes walking to the beach. Go to Kenya and enjoy your stay at Villa Soleil!
Dear Rudi, thank you very much for your comment. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay so much. Thank you as well to my staff and the caretaker. We do our best to maintain this high level of standard. Kind regards to Romania, Wolfgang
Relaxing in luxury, menus from a 1st class chef
We came to the Villa Soleil on our honeymoon, wondering what awaited us on our first trip to Africa. We came back from our honeymoon rested, relaxed, pampered, and determined to book again ASAP.
"Team Soleil" made every part of our honeymoon special, from Wolfgang's friendly and helpful emails telling us everything we needed to know about preparing for the trip, to Musa's beautifully tended garden, to Eunice's warm smile and readiness to help with anything we needed, and especially chef Anthony's incredible cooking! Even on a honeymoon, we're not usually the types to hang around the house, but we honestly just didn't want to go anywhere else. We dipped in the pool, swung on the porch swing, watched films, and stuffed ourselves to bursting every day. We did wander down to the beach and it was lovely, no problems with beach boys at all. But it just couldn't compete with the beauty, privacy, and peace at the villa.
Just to keep it real, there was one small imperfection-- the power went out a few times during our visit, which was annoying. However, I have heard that Wolfgang will be adding a generator to the property soon.
If the property happens to be available, I can only say book it immediately!
Dear Charys, thank you very much for your comment. It was our pleasure to host you and we are happy that you enjoyed it. The generator is on our plan and will be available in due time. An air condition in the two bedrooms is installed after your departure. We hope to see you again in the Villa Soleil. Kind regards as well from the team.
11.7.2016: P.S.: We are happy to inform you and all the previous and future guests that a power generator has been installed in between.
Wonderful oasis of serenity and relaxation.
From the moment we arrived we were welcomed and made to feel like royalty. We were greeted by the staff with an introduction, tour and a much needed refreshing drink. Inside the walls you find a beautiful home to relax and take life at a very slow pace indeed. All your needs are met by the staff so all you can do is relax. In one week we read several books (unheard of in our busy lives); swam in the private pool; wandered to the beach for a swim in the ocean each day; sat drinking beer or cocktails at a hotel on the waterfront; cycled along the shore and, each evening, just sat upstairs with our wine watching monkeys playing in the trees. All food was prepared lovingly by Anthony the Chef whilst Eunice took care of the cleaning and washing. We actually met the owners, Beate and Wolfgang as they arrived on our departure and can truly recommend them as honest hosts who look after every detail. We left Villa Soleil feeling more relaxed in one week than any two week break we have taken and we holiday a lot! The beach boys were no trouble, just be polite but firm and they will leave you alone unlike in The Gambia. There was also no sign of any trouble at all despite concerns of late. Diani Beach is not a trouble spot at all, far away from all of that. We firmly recommend Villa Soleil as a relaxing holiday destination.
2 Wochen Traumurlaub
Wir haben 2 wundervolle Wochen in der Villa Soleil verbracht.
Die Villa ist in Wirklichkeit mindestens so schön wie auf den Bildern, alles sehr sauber und top in Schuss. Das Team der Villa Soleil hat sich sehr aufmerksam und dabei unaufdringlich um uns gekümmert. Das Essen, das Rama nach unseren Wünschen und auch eigenen Vorschlägen für uns zubereitet hat, war sehr lecker. Besonders genossen haben wir den wundervollen Garten, und den riesigen Pool!
Mit Shala, dem NightAskari haben wir uns jederzeit sicher aufgehoben gefühlt. Eine Massage von Lydia ist unbedingt empfehlenswert!
Auch die ganze Organisation hat sehr gut funktioniert. Die Kommunikation mit dem Vermieter war super freundlich und sehr informativ. Ebenso hat die für uns organisierte Abholung vom Flughafen reibungslos und zuverlässig geklappt. Auch die Vor-Ort-Betreuung durch die Hausverwalterin Anne war sehr gut.
Ein Urlaub in der Villa Soleil ist uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert! Ein dickes Dankeschön an Familie Waltersdorf dafür!
Claudia und Familie
Liebe Familie Klingele,
es freut uns sehr, dass Sie unsere Bemühungen für ein wunderschönes Urlaubserlebnis gewürdigt haben. Wie werden nicht nachlassen, den Standard weiter auszubauen um auch weitere Gäste zu begeistern.
Vielen Dank und alles Gute.
Diani Beach is a holiday resort, located south of Mombasa, directly on the Indian Ocean. The resort has the best conditions for you to relax during your holiday very well. You will find excellent opportunities here for trips, safaris, sports, swimming, kite-surfing, beach walking, shelling or simply just relaxing! Matatus (small buses), which are extremely inexpensive, run continuously between the house and the shopping facilities. Groceries are very cheap and everything that the heart desires is available. Over 20 kilometres of fine, white, plain sandy beach, ideal for jogging or walking, enchant thousands of tourists every year from all over the world and you will never feel like being in a holiday region where mass tourism has taken hold. At Diani Beach there are numerous restaurants with excellent international and African cuisine at quite reasonable price or treat yourself with the culinary delights prepared by our chef. You can find tips on restaurants, recreational activities and much more in your villa.Other activities: Safari, Nordic Walking, kite-surfing, beach-biking, gym
Golf: Opposite to Leisure Lodge, only 10 minutes drive away from your villa, there is an 18-hole golf course.
Nature: We can gladly plan a day trip for you also to the nearby Shimba Hills, a small National Park in the middle of the jungle. You can take up wonderful hikes there, amaze at elephants and very beautiful waterfalls and landscapes. The best place for adventure, photography or even for children.
Another alternative would be deep sea fishing or a boat tour with accommodation on an island.
