First Prize Keya Homes ExpoFirst Prize for Exemplary Service in Real Estate

12th Kenya Homes Exhibition

Hon. Soita Shitanda, Minister for Housing in Kenya, awards Desirée Bellomi of Desiderata Investments for their "Exemplary Service in Real Estate" category during the 12th Kenya Homes Expo 2010 : the biggest Expo in Eastern and Central Africa.

This project was created with the intention to offer for the first time to the Kenyan market a revolutionary product. Desiderata Investments Limited are fully independent pioneers in the development of exclusive homes and villas.

  • Exclusive and luxury in a truly beautiful location
  • With large pool and landscaping
  • Quality construction with the highest grade materials
  • Low maintenance and staffing costs
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Beneficial to the local economy
  • Properties can be rented out
  • Secure and safe community

Our construction techniques use the best of local resources combined with proven building materials suitable for the climate and land. Our experience tells us not to use perishable materials like wood and makuti that over time need to be renewed. The design of the villas makes use of natural airflow with the roof providing a high degree of thermal insulation and energy-saving thus keeping the house comfortably air-conditioned.

Each villa will have it's own private well that will significantly reduce the costs of irrigation, filling of the swimming pool and for general use.

Desiderata Investments invites you to invest in a property that above all is of a design and construction quality never seen before on this coast and will provide a luxury, relaxing home just yards from a golden beach.

We can also offer you the chance to purchase your Golden Beach Luxury Villa completely furnished and ready to be lived in. It's a unique opportunity to collaborate with Désirée Bellomi, interior designer. Below is an article on Désirée Bellomi’s decorated house in Kenya ( “The Best Houses in the World” Architectural Digest Magazine, May 2009).

Luxury Villa in the evening glow

Désirée’s unique vision is clearly displayed in her design which integrates this stunning property with the natural beauty of Watamu Marine Park. The result is a subtle blend of ‘safari style’ with the decorative trends of nearby Lamu Island and local Islamic and Eastern culture brought by ships of merchants of the East Indies Company.

The golden beach at Mambrui

The Golden Beach at Mambrui is so called because the very fine grains of sand contain little flecks of silicon that reflect sparkles of gold.
