You will not find anything like Asante Sana in Kennebunkport. Nor anywhere along the eastern seaboard. Perhaps not anywhere in the world. Your luxury suite with field stone floors, an indoor rain shower, an outdoor shower called Chongwe and a hot tub called Yemanja is tucked in the woods, along a river, just a short walk from Goose Rocks Beach. This award-winning Africa-inspired home will inspire you to dream in ways you've never before dreamed.


Asante Sana ( Swahili for "thank you very much" ) has been featured in Veranda Magazine ( search "Veranda" and "Safari" ) and the book, "Veranda Retreats." Asante Sana's landscape design has won numerous national awards.

Designed by international interior designer, John Saladino, Ivan Chatman and Jennifer King and architecturally designed by Stephen Barlow, this gorgeous property which is tucked into a stunning family compound may inspire you to nap in a hammock, pick seasonal blueberries, play ping pong or croquet or their great lawn, or soak up the birch trees and birds as you listen to the ocean or the sound of the waterfall in their woods. When you are not soaking up the magic of the ocean just minutes away by foot! You'll be steps away from Goose Rocks Beach, one of the most extraordinary, soft sandy beaches in the world. Your Rugged Elegance RE-treat ~ complete with a treasure hunt of elephants ~ is a leisurely stroll to the beach, The Tide's Beach Club. If you prefer traveling by water you can kayak / paddle board outside your door from your dreamy African Maine bush, under two bridges, out to Squishy Island, the Nectar Sector, all the way to the beach (a 20 minute paddle)!

• You don't need to fly all the way to Africa to experience one of the best African-like lodges on the planet!
• Your bedroom suite in the "bush" is a six minute walk to one of the softest sandy beaches on the East Coast. You get the energy of the ocean and the peace and quiet of being near the Little River in the Woods!
• The historic village of Kennebunkport is less than a fifteen minute drive from your paradise on earth
• Park in front of their barn ~ a hop, skip and jump from Goose Rocks Beach
• Enter your domain via a private entrance
• Fresh brewed coffee, every morning
• A gas-lit fire, every night
• Asante Sana defines Rugged Elegance Africa and Maine combined
• Choose their downstairs bedroom suite and you'll have access to a hot tub called Yemanja and their outdoor Chongwe shower
• For two couples traveling together you can choose the upstairs wing of Asante Sana which includes two bedroom suites + a connected terrace overlooking the compound
• There is simply nothing else like Asante Sana in the world

Dostupno gostima

Your guest suite in the bush includes:

An outdoor shower, beach towels, two Austrian beach chairs with ottomans and a wagon to get your chairs + gear to and from Goose Rocks Beach.

Paddle boards and kayaks are available for rent. From your back door, through their "bush" head down The Little River to the Atlantic Ocean. Or borrow Rugged Elegant Jen's two surfboards and drive 7 minutes to Fortunes Rocks, one of the best surfing spots on the Atlantic.

Tim and Jen will help you rent bicycles and direct you to the Eastern Trail or a leisurely 25 mile bike ride into Kennebunkport along Ocean Avenue and back.

Sit by the gas fire with a book, a cocktail and listen to the birds, the ocean and the rustling of the trees.

There is no more idyllic setting in the world than this!

Rugged Elegance founders, Jennifer King & Timothy Fredel welcome sharing with you their world-class, "suite" inspiring experience. Their reason: to generate greater awareness and funds for the philanthropies that they are most passionate. Select one of the following African or Maine focused non-profit organizations that Jennifer and Tim support and the Rugged Elegance Foundation will give 10% of the cost of your stay to the charity of your choice:

• Babette's Feast Theatre Production in Portland, Maine

Interakcija s gostima

Rugged Elegant Jen, her husband, Tim and their Golden Retriever, Aspen reside at Casa Al Mare in San Francisco, Fall-Summer and at Asante Sana in Maine from mid-June thru the peak of the fall foliage.

The Rugged Elegance Foundation will give ten percent of our take to a charity of your choice that is in the current RE portfolio of philanthropies.

J'ai beaucoup voyagé dans le monde et j'ai donc été dans beaucoup de chambres. Je dois dire que la chambre proposée par Jennifer est bien la plus belle que j'aie jamais vue. Pourquoi ? La maison de Jennifer et Tim est assez exceptionnelle par son architecture et plus particulièrement pour la décoration intérieure qui est manifestement non seulement le fruit des idées de Jennifer mais aussi le travail d'un architecte d'intérieur de renommée internationale. La tonalité africaine est effectivement sensible mais on est surtout frappé par l'élégance de la décoration, le choix des matériaux (des bois superbes), le choix de l'ameublement et des couleurs très douces et donc très agréables à vivre. La chambre elle-même est indépendante et donne sur le jardin et à l'intérieur sur un grand séjour avec cheminée. Lit de qualité exceptionnelle. Jolie salle de bains avec une belle douche à l'italienne à l'intérieur et une autre à l'extérieur (oui !) qui est fort agréable. Je n'oublie pas le spa personnel dessiné par Jennifer avec une petite rivière coulant sur des galets. Bruit d'eau très agréable. Très joli jardin avec beaucoup de fleurs tout autour. Accès à une petite rivière sur laquelle on peut faire du paddle. La plage ? A environ 100m, immense plusieurs kilomètres, quasiment déserte en septembre, très propre et eau pas froide ! Il est possible que le prix fasse un peu peur...quelques observations. On dit en France "quand on aime on ne compte pas" donc on peut faire plaisir à une invitée elle sera certainement ravie. On peut aussi se souvenir que Jennifer s'engage à reverser une partie des sommes à des œuvres philanthropiques. Enfin, si tous ces arguments ne suffisent pas, on peut peut-être ouvrir une petite discussion africaine sur le sujet ! En résumé cette chambre vaut le voyage et l'accueil de Jennifer et Tim vous comblera.

Every aspect and detail of Asante Sana has been touched by Jennifer and Tim. The space speaks to their passion and dedication for design and philanthropy. From the limestone details in the bathroom to the exposed beams in the bedroom one can see how the vision came to life. I don't think I could rave enough about the stone hot tub. It was a perfect place to relax in the quite of the woods. The outdoor shower was also amazing! Pictures don't do justice. With the beach so close I highly recommend a midnight stroll. The sand was still warm from the day, and with the gentle waves rolling in, it was heaven. I wish we had more time to spend at Asante Sana, and exploring Kennebunkport. Thank you Jennifer and Tim.

Matthew, you are a scientist AND a poet. Thank you for this beautiful description of Asante Sana! We love sharing our unique artistic Africa-inspired expression in Maine, especially with those who appreciate the attention to detail that went into its creation. I am making a grant to No Kid Hungry in your honor, today. Kudos!

Asante Sana is a complete dream! Our stay was a delight from start to finish! Jennifer and Tim are the loveliest couple ever and the work that they are doing with their non-profit Rugged Elegance is most worthy! We awoke to the sound of the ocean and jumped in the stone hot tub with a beautiful water fountain and stream. The outdoor Chongwe shower feels like we were on an African Safari! Best rain shower ever! Just a quick stroll down the street is one of the best beaches I've even been to! Goose Rocks has silky soft white sand and not too busy. This place is romantic rain or shine! The designer details of the home are exquisite! Jennifer & Tim gave us the best tips for a dream weekend including Earth at Hidden Pond, Goldwaithe's in Biddford Pool and St. Ann's church for Sunday mass outside on the ocean! Our suite was the perfect getaway and retreat after glorious coastal days sailing on the Schooner Eleanor and beach walks. It was hard to leave. I've already told many friends and look forward to coming back! The best part is that the reason Jennifer & Tim have chosen to share their Maine creation with others is to help create further funds and awareness for the African and Maine non-profits that their inspiring Rugged Elegance community (now our community too) most cares about. We are grateful that a gift representing ten percent of our stay will be given in our name to support No Kids Hungry. Thank you Jen, Tim and the Rugged Elegance Foundation! Asante Sana and family have my heart!
