What is the Tulia Homes concept in a nutshell?
Tulia Homes is a controlled development gated community featuring 10 quarter acre plots and 26 half acre plots. We have adopted a hybrid concept which gives residents the off-plan option or simply buy a plot and build in accordance with our building guidelines. These guidelines are captured under the special conditions section of the sale agreement. We are keen on building a community of like-minded residents. The project is set out in a uniquely quiet environment dominated by the soothing sounds of birds and the blue Indian ocean waters. Residents must therefore be prepared to adhere to living in a serene, quiet neighborhood where tranquility is the key value which binds all residents together.
What are the basic services being offered at Tulia?
- Perimeter wall
- Swimming pool for residents and children’s playground
- Fresh water from the Kilifi water authority
- Electricity termination at the estate utility plot
- Garbage collection
Will the residents be charged service charge?
Yes, there will be a modest service charge for recurring services to the residents including garbage collection, security, swimming pool maintenance etc. We are yet to work out the exact amount but we are sure it will be very modest and absolute value for money.
What duration does the developer allow for a plot to remain undeveloped?
A maximum of 3 years from the sale agreement execution date. In the meantime, plot owners are required to keep their plots clear of bushes which could harbor mosquitoes, rodents or undesirable intruders. A modest service charge on idle land will be levied 6 months after the sale agreement execution date.
What is your source of water and how will residents access it?
The developer is co-ordinating with the Kilifi water authority to supply fresh water to every household. The developer will also avail borehole water for construction at a modest fee. Residents will be at liberty to prospect for borehole water to supplement the fresh water supply.
Can residents construct internal security walls for their plots?
No, this is not allowed. The developer will put up a perimeter wall. Security will be enhanced both at the estate entrance and vigilant patrol in the estate. In order to enhance the aesthetic beauty of the estate, we only allow picket fences as defined in the sale agreement.
Are there any plans to rope in an Internet Service Provider?
Indeed we have given the first rights of refusal to Safaricom. Their fibre cable is only 350 meters from Tulia Homes.

This is however subject to them attaining the minimum materialization numbers.
