Alfajiri Beach Villa and Garden Villa overlook the Indian Ocean with the elevated position ensuring privacy and stunning views. A large veranda under a massive makuti roof, ocra Danish floors, wooden beams, Lamu doors and impressive artefacts all reflect the outstanding attention to detail and high standard of interior design. Most of the furniture is made in the family run workshop and the gardens are meticulously maintained and include many palms from the villa's nursery. Each villa has its own swimming pool.

The Beach Villa is informal and very romantic in style, open to the sea breezes and under a makuti roof. It has two luxuriously appointed double bedrooms with their own bathroom. One of them overlooks the Indian Ocean, the other the overflowing swimming pool.Two additional rooms, upstairs under the makuti roof, provide exciting accommodation for children. There is no bathroom at this level, so children would share one of the two bathrooms below.  All rooms have mosquito nets and are cooled by fans (there is no air conditioning).

The Garden Villa is more formal and glass enclosed to suit those who like air conditioned accommodation. It can accommodate eight guests in four large luxuriously appointed double bedrooms each with their own large bathroom and all rooms overlooking the Indian Ocean. The rooms are air-conditioned with split-level units and mosquito nets and all have different interior decoration; the furniture and artefacts have been collected in different countries around the world.
