A Chilled Haven. A friendly Abode. A gathering place.

The Kip has been a complete labour of love - a way to invite people into our home and embrace the slow life.
Set back from the busy main road in a traditional little village, surrounded by lush jungle, with a secluded beach at the end of the road, it is a true gem - just as we had always dreamed..

The house // The Rooms


Converting the colonial-style, once-private residence was definitely an act of defiance. It’s been a journey, but we found beauty in imperfection, and to date stayed true to our vision.

The villa is centered around its open air courtyard, while at the back of the property banana, coconut and avocado trees aplenty make for a place to indulge in your yoga practice, embrace your green thumb and, most importantly, unwind and relax.


Meet Rockzz

The only one to put up with Phoebe’s singing and dancing and P’s boyfriend for all tasks Seddy doesn’t want to do. Turned up on his first work day severely hungover but everyone loves him - and he knows.

Meet Helen

Always looks like she’s on a mission - To date we still haven’t found out which one it is. You probably won’t ever hear her talk, but she’s always up for a giggle.


Just a stone throw away from the ‘secret beach’.
Guests like to call it Phoebe’s beach.

Simple objects, thoughtfully placed-
