Paradiso Helena is a beautiful cottage created and built by a partnership between Helle, Helena, Feddersen from Denmark and Raymond Msavarie Kazao from Kenya, in the summer of the year 2017. The purpose of this project was to create business for the local people and at the same time opening up for the returning of tourists to this beautiful tropical area of the world. It is a true paradise with a superb climate all year around. Sunshine and warm rain in a few months throughout the year to keep nature green, so you can grow your own vegetables and fruits in the garden. The population here is very friendly, loving and smiling.
On the property there are 3 houses, a main house, and two jungle houses.
The main house is 308 square meters and consists of 3 big bedrooms, 2 large bathrooms, a large open kitchen and dining area connected with open terrace for relaxing and a nice swimming pool. The swimming pool is 2m x 8m and 2 m deep and the water stays refreshingly chilly because it is underneath the huge macuti roof. The main house is roofed by a large macuti roof with the height of 26 meters in the middle. Upstairs you will find a 72 square meter open area with a view to the macuti roof, the terraces and the pool. A decorative black iron ladder is connecting the ground floor to the first floor. On the first floor you will also find two balconies with a gorgeous view to nature around you and to the African sunsets. The best quality and local materials have been used everywhere.
The 3 bedrooms are 20 square meters each and are equipped with one double bed, which can easily be separated into two single beds. If needed there is 76 square meters upstairs where you can easily have 10 people sleep. Upstairs you also find two large balconies facing south and west. So the main house can host 6 -16 guests.
The two bathrooms are 8 square meters each and have a shower area, toilet and sink all in galena stones which is the local stone. Everything is in the same raw style, Italian style, that is the unique characteristic of Paradiso Helena.
