Safari by the Sea: Luxury Tropical Villa with Private Pool - Steps to the Beach

Come to Florida’s Palm Coast and stay at this luxurious tropical villa with a private pool and spa. “Safari by the Sea” is a short 5-minute walk to the oceanfront community’s private beach featuring pristine cinnamon-colored sand on the Atlantic Ocean. Relax in a welcoming home with authentic West African décor that will transport you across the Atlantic Ocean on an African Safari.
Start the day hiking the Mala Compra trail a mile away, take your golf clubs to the Ocean Course at Hammock Beach, then take a nap on the beach listening to the Atlantic Ocean. Finally, come back to your 4-bedroom, 3 full-bath + 2 half-bath retreat for a home-cooked meal, or have a West African chef deliver an authentic Jollof Rice dinner to you. End the day with a glass of wine and a post-dinner soak in the Mami Wata (Mermaid) pool on the Lanai watching the stars twinkle overhead!

Palm Coast is just 45 minutes South of Jacksonville, 30 minutes north of Daytona Beach, and 1 hour east of Orlando.

Your Hosts: Fatu & Shekou

We are a married couple with 4 kids, 2 dogs and 1 cat. We love traveling to different cities and countries around the world, meeting different people, and learning about different cultures. We love our tropical vacation villa because it sits on the beautiful Atlantic Ocean which connects our two countries – Sierra Leone and America, and because it allows us to bring a taste of Africa to America. We welcome you to our vacation home and can’t wait to provide you with our warm African hospitality!
