  • Had a lovely stay at the apartment. Great ambience if you are looking for an intimate getaway. The staff were amazing, with Janet ensuring we had a comfortable stay. She also allowed for a late checkout as our flight back was delayed. Ben, the Chef, exceeded our expectations. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend.

  • A lovely and unique place - thanks to all !

    Samir2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • The place is breath taking! Great view onto the Indian Ocean and just the perfect spot for 2. Loved our time there, thank you Janet for looking after us. The kitchen is small, but enough to prep a good meal. Lots of good local restaurants around, or the fancy ones along the beach! I would definitely be back!!

  • Barry's place was amazing. Great view, great place and great service. I strongly recommend this Airbnb :)

    Sidonie2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best locations at the Coast, we loved the sky cabana. Everything was just as described (except no monkey sightings for us!) and all went very smoothly. It's an excellent value compared to a lot of the big hotels on Galu beach, and while the kitchen is not huge, it was perfectly sufficient for making simple breakfast and lunches for two people. Totally private and all amenities worked great, including the pool, wifi and A/C. An excellent choice!

    Laura2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • This place is as described and is just amazing. It's very private and the stuffs are very kind, helpful and responsive. The view from the balcony is amazing. I do recommend staying here and I hope to stay there again.

    James2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great Place, great host, wonderfull view! Very private, perfect for people who like to chill. Do not count on cooking extensive meals (only 1 buner hot plate), but lot of good restaurants around to make up for that.

    Diani Beach, Wilaya ya Kwale, Kenya

    750m to the beach, in close proximity to supermarkets, shops, bars, restaurants etc. Small, private complex consisting of only 4 cozy, well-equipped appartments (with air conditioning!), pool and beautiful, lovely garden full of flowers.
    Top 10 Reasons to stay with us: - Swimming Pool - Close to the Beach/Sea (750m) - Close to the center of Diani (800m) - Air Conditioning in the bed room! - Fully equipped kitchen incl. cooking gas - DAILY cleaning! No dish washing - Free, unlimited Wi-Fi - Small, private holiday home - Beautiful garden & relaxing sun beds - Absolutely quit, safe neighborhood Long Version: In the middle of the garden full of exotic flowers and blossoms is they yin-yang pool which is shared by our exclusive guests, who live in one of our four apartments. The apartment described in this offer is a quite big (57 m²) and well, so we'd love to welcome you here. Not only the terrace is extra large (20 m²) and comfortable equipped with a couch, swing bed, two ceiling fans and big dinner table but also the interior spaces have enough room and appealing furniture. Outside is the best place to be in Kenya. This is why we built a private, shady terrace (20 m²) with view to the garden and due to the ceiling fan it is even on hot days a nice area to relax and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of our place. The kitchen with gas stove and oven, big fridge (and freezer) and enough cooking utensils is ready to use during a long term rent or holiday. Don't worry about dishwasing! Daily cleaning is included in the price. The furniture and ornamental elements made out of tropical timber are supposed to give every apartment an individual, special appearance. However, the design of the rooms is rather basic. We put most of our effort into the garden. :-) The sleeping room of Mnazi 1 comes with a big double bed, mosquito nets, A/C and ceiling fan. There is also a TV which can only be operated via the provided DVD-Player. There is a small couch and a coffee table as well. In the private bath room next to your bed room you have the option to shower with warm water. Sweet Water / Drinking water is freshly put into containers every day. You can use it to cook, brush your teeth or even for drinking. It is completely safe (we buy it from a Drinking water supplier) - we drink it everyday and have always been fine. Keep in mind that in most holiday homes in Kenya you have to buy every drop of sweet water by yourself! At our place, only very cautious people have to buy water for drinking in sealed bottle in the supermarkets. Bedclothes, towels and daily cleaning (6 times a week) by our housekeeper as well as gas and water are included in the price. Power is to pay extra.
    750m to the beach, in close proximity to supermarkets, shop, bars, pharmancys, banks, restaurants etc. The cottages are located in a quiet neigbourhood, where it is safe to walk and live. There is no traffic noise and at night there are street lights.
  • It was our second time at Frangipani Cottages and we would come back a third time. It was very pleasant again, the staff is super friendly and helpful. And in the cottage you can relax, cook, read, etc. - if you are not exploring the great surroundings.

    Ulrike2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • The service at this little oasis is exceptional. All the staff and the hosts Nora and Thomas went above and beyond. Absolutely spotless! We felt so relaxed and at home in Frangipani. We loved the pool and it was welcome respite from the humidity. The bed was comfortable and we loved just lounging on our patio. Location is easy access to many restaurants and Good grocery. We cooked in the kitchen nearly every day and it was well equipped. One note - we did not understand that Ukunda had a small airport and had booked our flight to Mombasa. We would recommend guests flying into Ukunda if possible as the trip from Mombasa by road can be long and difficult due to the wait at the ferry. We hope to visit again some day and will definitely fly to Ukunda.

    Fidel2019-09-07T00:00:00Z

    Kelvin2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • A warm welcome and friendly intentions from the staff. In a very friendly environment (terraces, pool and very pretty vegetation, all well maintained) The location seemed interesting. Good value for money, however during our stay the Wifi has never worked.

    Alexis2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Serene place. Close to everything

    JoJo2019-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Thomas & Nora and recovered so well! The apartments are very well maintained, super clean and lovingly decorated! Unfortunately, we did not meet them in person, but they were fabulously represented by Salome of her very warm and friendly housekeeper! Thank you for the great time and the great tips to explore the area! Very recommendable!

    Meryem2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, awesome hospitality and had a fun stay. Definitely value for your money.

  • Colin's place was just as described In the listing. It was spacious and very clean. Colin was always reachable, quickly responsive and helpful. The staff gained in my unit every day with new sheets and towels. The location was great with only a five minute walk to a great white sands beach. Lots of restaurants close to the apartment. Will definitely return

    Sherali2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Colin's place is exactly as the pictures and as described in the listing. Things are in walking distance so easy to walk to the road to find a tuk tuk if needed. Place is affordable for the space and amenties that you get.

    Esther2020-01-15T00:00:00Z

    Charity2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • the apartment was nice ideal for children and relaxing... Improvements must be made in the bathroom ... the kitchen must be better supplied we had to buy us certain utensils .... Public transport nearby, excellent security.

    Lucy2019-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • Colins place is a blast! Very comfortable and nice, we stayed three nights and almost not moved out because it is so relaxing there. Wake up, jump in the pool, have breakfast outside, jump in the pool again. I can strongly recommend Apple Mango!

  • The place is very convenient, safe, well organized and kept clean. Oyvind even being far away is always in touch and responds immediately. Kevin is very helpful and reliable. Circumstances made me staying here much longer than it was planned and I think it was a good luck that it happened in this place.

    Natalia2020-04-06T00:00:00Z
  • The place was amazing, accessible to the beach and sparkling clean. Kevin and Peninah are always available on call and reliable and the place was safe even for late walks.

  • Amazing outdoor spaces. We spent the whole week hanging out outside, swimming and going to the beach.

    Jillian2020-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • The place was incredible and the staff was very friendly. Chef pascal made delicious food and I especially enjoyed the privacy and how secluded the location was. Thanks Alberta for arranging everything.

    Nahida2020-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • We were 4 people. Well-kept villa, spacious and above all hospitable. Cook Pacal and Timothy took care of our taste buds. Daily breakfast, lunch, dinner at the highest level! Every day we ordered Pacscal fish and seafood that the local fishermen brought home! We adopted the way Pascal prepared the dishes. The whole team is helpful and nice (Pascal, Timoth, Gärtner, Sicherheit). Give this hospitality back. It costs nothing. But don't forget to give a little tip every day. What seems little to them is a lot for everyone. We liked it so much that we extended our stay by three more days. The beach is 5 minutes away on foot. There is another hotel across the street from the villa. Guests of the villa can use the hotel's beach. You can use the beach, the toilet, the sun beds and the shade of the palm trees. In the beach bar you can drink cold beer (3 € 0.5 l bottle) or Coca Cole (1.5 € bottle). We will definitely come back if it is possible. Ps. The villa and the surrounding area are very safe.

    Jerzy2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Alberta for hosting us in your paradise.

    Laurent2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous, cool, cozy space with all kinds of interesting artworks from around the world, as well as an immaculate saltwater swimming pool and spacious, airy rooms. The villa staff is fantastic and friendly, and Chef Pascal’s cooking is absolutely delicious. The beach is 3mins away, and there’s lots of shopping and provisions a short tuktuk ride away. Full recommendation!!

    Hannah2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent facilities Excellent staff Excellent Cook

    Diane2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was wonderful and staff were amazing. The caretaker Timothy was always on hand and responsive to anything we needed. If you want to pay 1500 Ksh (or 15 USD) a day you get an amazing cook who made even simple dishes perfectly, and you don't have to leave the premises. There were staff making sure it was clean throughout the day. Everyone was friendly and helpful, and they attended to us so well that we felt much more pampered than we've ever been at any hotel or Airbnb before this. My wife and I loved all the decorations too, you can really tell Alberta had some wonderful times there and collected some really distinct furnishings. There is a nice pool to swim in and the beautiful beach is about a 5 min walk. There were even people they could call in if you wanted things like a massage or laundry done, and the massage was excellent. The only thing I wouldn't recommend is the snorkeling company the staff recommended. For one thing it was originally advertised as "swimming with dolphins" which we double checked would likely be part of it when the representative talked to us. Despite those assurances, we did see dolphins on the trip once but they made no effort to let us enter the water with them. Also it was billed as a whole day experience which, even though it took the whole day at a full nine hours, it ended up being one dive of only one hour of snorkeling. The rest was travelling, about an hour to drive to the boat drop-off and multiple hours riding around in choppy waters in a large boat packed full of people, with another stopoff for lunch. Even though everyone was nice and the actual snorkeling was fun, it was a large amount of false advertising about the dolphins and way too much traveling to justify it all. We also did scuba diving as brand new beginners for two half day sessions for a slightly bigger price and not only was it more convenient (being off Diani Beach itself, not some other island), but you got more water time and honestly saw better stuff. Despite that minor gripe (which wasn't entirely the fault of the Taj Riviera staff anyway), the experience was amazing and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

    Shane2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and amazing place. The Chef makes really good food and the people at the villa will take care any of your needs.

    John2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Maria's home, the Sanaa House, is a lovely, stylish and tastefully furnished house with its own private swimming pool. We really enjoyed our time there, the quietness, the clean pool, Maria's flowers which were in full bloom, Maria's art and the general decor. Maria was a thoughtful host who despite being away during our entire stay there, always called to check up on us. Steve, her home assistant was also so helpful and kind. He has a heart of gold. Maria's two dogs were very friendly and a delight to play with as well, not forgetting shy Nero and its sibling cat.

    Rutto2020-03-14T00:00:00Z

  • We were there for 1 week and were received very nicely. Nicole is super personable and is always available for questions and tips. The accommodation is a little paradise, beautiful garden, beautiful beach, everything with great attention to detail. The kitchen has everything you need to cater for yourself. Supermarket and restaurants are easy to reach with the TukTuk. Also great is the water dispenser that is available to guests. A great place to unwind. We would definitely recommend the property. Thank you very much dear Nicole for the wonderful time with you.

    Jacqueline2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent accommodation for spending your time at Diani Beach. Highly recommended! Would return anytime. Nicole is the most wonderful host.

    Josefa2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful spot in Diani. Nicole and the rest of her staff were incredibly helpful arranging transportation after a late flight into Mombasa and then shared lots of great tips and information which made our stay even better. My girlfriend and I loved the cottage and would recommend to all. Wish we were still there.

    Joseph2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time in this beautiful oasis with Nicole and Simon. The place is fantastic and everything is as the pictures show, if not better. We would have loved to stay longer and will definitely come back again.

    Anna2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you very much for your welcome, dream location by the sea, calm exotic and sumptuous landscape, we take your eyes off it. Magic place.

    Regsummers2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We loved this property. The cottage is beautiful both the interior and the outdoor patio. It sits on a plot that leads directly onto the beach. The chef delivered amazing meals. Nicole is a great host, she was super responsive and helpful. We highly recommend this property.

    Frederick2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great close to the beach. Huge African trees in the garden that are visited by monkeys who keep an eye on your delicacies ... it was a wonderful stay

    Loek2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is in a fantastic location with private access to the dream beach of Diani Beach. The entire property with the large garden is stylishly designed with great attention to detail (eg at the fireplace). In this environment you literally feel like in paradise. The accommodation itself is just as stylish and is cleaned daily by the staff. The private outdoor area with shower is an absolute highlight, like everything else. The air conditioning in the bedroom was very comfortable, so that you could sleep comfortably in January despite the enormous heat. Nicole's hospitality deserves a special mention. She gave us comprehensive advice before, during and after our stay and gave us a mega ingenious safari and organized further details such as taxi transfers etc. So everything was always organized without us having a lot of work with it. The great restaurants (nomads on the beach, Ali Barbour Cave etc) complete the already perfect location. Thanks to tuk tuk, it was not far to go shopping, about 5 minutes away. Overall, we were able to enjoy an incredibly adventurous, varied, wonderful and unforgettable time, which also inspired our 5 year old son. Highly Recommended. We thank Nicole and everyone else for the great time in Kenya.

They are all en suite and the master bedroom has a double shower as well as a jacuzzi to help you unwind after a long day of unwinding. Each room has its own personal balcony overlooking the beach. The eating area is on the veranda so guests can soak up the ocean air and view while they nourish themselves. Each villa has cable TV and a wifi connection. The pool is the only area that is communal for guests to share, however it is always a welcoming space to lounge on the pool-beds while reading a book or sipping on a cocktail made from the bar. Come, enjoy and relax with us.
    Kalista is unique in that it provides total seclusion and privacy for guests. The villas are surrounded by beautiful beach and the Sacred Kaya Forest which is a UNESCO World Heritage sight. Guests can use the beach to tan, relax or engage in water sports; or visit the Kaya forest for a guided tour, gain insight on Kenya's precolonial history, birdwatch or learn about the beautiful and unique botany of the area.

  • Villa Kalista is beautiful, spacious and serene. The property is immaculate and the staff are always prepared to take care of you. The chefs are incredible, as well. Try the seafood bisque on the menu, you won't regret it.

  • Relax in the tranquil surroundings with a view of the beautiful ocean. I would recommend that you pack your snorkelling gear - the most amazing opportunity to enjoy the beautiful marine life. The facilities are great and the staff are extremely helpful. We really enjoyed our time at Villa Kalista and will definitely stay there again.

    Sandie2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • Villa Kalista is a superb location resort with a private beach and nothing but perfect views of the Indian Ocean beyond. The design of the villas makes each one feel private and their architecture carries that from their footprint through to every balcony and room of the house. Fantastic pool that was not hard to share with the other guests. The staff is warm and attentive, easy to reach and very professional. Robert was a gracious host and we enjoyed meeting Faiza, who was welcoming and engaging, as well. Juliana, Salma, Stephen, and Macdonald were so generous with their help with everything, even my children! It was a lovely, cozy stay. And the views of so much private beach and ocean were an absolute treat to live alongside for a few days! We will certainly be back.

    Jon And Cate2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Villa Kalista is the sort of place of you schedule a return visit immediately you depart from it. The food was amazing. Chef John had intricate knowledge of recipes for the various dishes we requested and executed them perfectly. Beachfront property with breathtaking views. We especially enjoyed the view from our villa rooftop. Full moon was out, so made for an even more memorable experience. Clean, well maintained rooms. Well coordinated team of workers. Friendly and courteous too. Overall it was an experience my family absolutely cherished and look forward to going back.

  • Jackie is an amazing host, that makes you feel very welcome. She helps with everything, and is responding very quick. Every time we had a question, we could ask her, without feeling like we were bothering her. The apartment is just as seen in the pictures, and the location is 5 minutes from a big supermarket and green store, where you can get everything you need. The security at the place, is also amazing and very friendly - generally all of the staff. I can only give this place and Jackie the biggest recommendation, and if I’m going back to Mombasa, this is definitely where I would stay!

  • Great place to stay, just around the corner from local stores. Never far off from transport. Very close to all the nearby resorts, clubs, restaurants. Rooms were spacious and no issues and the manager, Stephen, was very quick with communication. There were empty rooms when we arrived and he let us choose a different one with a balcony. I had also lost my wallet and all my cards during my stay and he was very accommodating in helping me with payment when we extended our stay a few days.

    Cory2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • The staff were very friendly and service-minded. We even got a room upgrade free of charge. The location was great, with supermarkets, restaurants and the beach nearby.

She is a wonderful host with a stylish place and local tips made my stay easier. If you are looking for a gem to stay for a couple of days, then look no further.

  • Jacinta is a wonderful host and makes you feel very welcome from the onset. She privided us with lots of great local tips. The room is great value with a lovely view. It worked well for us to have the flexibility to eat wherever we wanted, rather than being tied to an all inclusive which many of the hotels seemed to be.

    Kitu Kidogo is a charming cottage set within a walled off tropical garden only 200 meters from the beach. The interiors have Swahili hand carved furniture and African art. Once guests close the main door they will find themselves in a world of their own. There is a private pool, outside entertainment area and a gas barbeque grill. There is plenty of attention to detail as our guests needs have carefully been thought of.
    Both bedrooms have double beds. One of the bedrooms opens up to the pool and the other one to the garden. The rooms have stand up fans and AC Units. The Swahili beds come with mosquito nets and Egyptian linen. There is a flat screen TV in the living room with satellite subscription. The WI FI in the cottage is quick and reliable. The kitchen comes fully equipped to cook scrumptious cuisine. If barbeque is more your thing then you will find it in the outside entertainment area.
    Kitu Kidogo Cottage is located in tranquil surroundings with plenty of coastal forest around it. The beach is only 200 meters away. On many still quiet days guests will be able to hear the sounds of the waves crashing on the reef. Ali Barbours Cave is only 100 meters away.
  • Just wow

    Rebecca2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful stay in Diani - the house is beautifully designed inside and out, comfortable, and with everything you could need. Lots of spaces to relax - the sitting room, by the pool, or in the outdoor lounge area in the back of the cottage. The property was so green and relaxing. The beach is just a 5 minute walk away and the pool is inviting anytime. The staff are friendly and helpful and the place feels safe. Hope to return again!

  • Incredible infinity pool above the river. Beautiful room with gorgeous furniture. Olaf is lovely and super helpful. We were on foot so we took Uber from there to the beach. The place is 950meters from the main road and is a little bit bumpy, not all cars go there. It’s 600 meters from the beach and it also had a great balcony and great bathroom.

    Silja2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • What a surprise ! I have never seen a house in Africa with such a successful local decoration. In addition, Genesis is surrounded by a cleaning lady who could work in a 4-star Parisian hotel! No really congratulations for having created such a welcoming and relaxing place after a day on the beach! I would definitely come back to this house!

There are pets on the compound and as we live in a tropical area which can get very humid please be informed there is likely to be a presence of insects; most of these are perfectly harmless and are best left alone. We do endeavour to keep the property insect free however given the environment we live in this is quite a task so your understanding is much appreciated
    Elo’s Beach House and annex is located on the stunning stretch of Diani Beach in Kenya. This charming beach house is ideally situated at the end of the Diani Beach Road and the start of Galu Beach which heads south towards Kaya Kinondo and Chale Island. The beach here is not as busy and is frequented by both locals and tourists alike, there is a fishing village nearby as well as restaurants, bars, shops and water sports centres.
  • Our stay at Elo's Annex was lovely. The swimming pool area is fantastic and the air conditioned bedroom was a must for our baby sleeping and during the heat of the day. The kitchen area had everything we needed and the sofa was comfortable.

    Jake2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is the second time my girlfriend have visited this location. The staff and the 3 dogs are very welcoming and super host. Our stay both times has been very peaceful and relaxing coupled by a beautiful tranquil pool and relaxing pool beds. The beach is around 5mins away allowing you to enjoy the beauty of Diani and soak some sun on the white sandy beaches.

    Eric2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Elo’s annex was superb. My family stayed there for a long weekend and we had a great time. The annex is beautifully designed, modern with a well equipped kitchenette to prepare breakfast, lite bites etc. The bedroom has awesome ac (this is hard to find in some places in Diani), the shower has very good pressure too. We made it work with my wife and I plus our two infants in travel cots. Having the living room was a real bonus for us. The pool area is beautiful, with a sun shade in the shallow end, great idea! The beach is a 2 min walk away which is a bonus too. I didn’t stay in the main house, but could see that it’s all done to a high standard. We will defiantly be back, it’s very good value compared to other places you’ll find in Diani and its a very nice place to stay.

    Mark2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • This place is the best! We loved everything: the super friendly and helpful staff Robert, Evans and the ladies; the location is perfect (just two minutes walk to the beach) , the swimmingpool and area around is so peaceful and beautiful. We felt really welcome and safe! Thank you so much! We will definitely come back when we have the chance!

    Jelly2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • The pictures don't do it justice. It stylish and modern and very clean. I loved the whole feel of the place It has an amazing pool - and pool side is spectacular - lying under the gazebo is very relaxing. Not very far from the beach and tuk tuk readily available to go to town. Definitely going back.

    Madiha2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place, frendly and helpful staff. They cleaned up every day and took care of the safety during the day and night. There are 3 super cute and present dogs around which make the place special. Monkeys passing by every now and then. Not a walking distance from the centre but plenty of tuktuk are on the main road all the time during the day and night which can drive you easily wherever you want to go in diani. Super nice and quite place. We had an awesome time there and will come back.

    Diana2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Eloise's place is lovely, as described and it felt even bigger than it looked in the pictures. Really great value for money. Full kitchen with everything you need to cook and a supermarket down the road in a tuktuk. The pool garden area is lovely too and the beach just a few minutes walk away. I would recommend stopping by Afrika Pearl hotel, moment away on the beach for a drink/lunch right on the beach and they have water sport/outings for sale. Definitely stay at Eloise's!!

  • Wonderful place to spend a few days enjoying the huge pool, the white sandy beach at your doorstep, and the comfy swahili daybeds. The very grand guestrooms are all on the first floor with ocean views and private baths and are quite lovely but folks not comfortable with stairs will struggle.

    Cynthia2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great location right next to baobab resort. You can walk over there by beach and get a day pass for all their amenities or just pay to use gym or spa. Quick tuk tuk ride to “town”. We enjoyed our stay.

  • Ahana is a stunning villa , the pictures don’t capture the true beauty and size of the place .. great chef as well

    Joan2019-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Ahana with a group of 10 recently and loved very minute. It's a very well kept house, on a nice quiet strip of Galu beach, and it has a huge pool which we really made use of. Omar's cooking is top notch and the general service levels from the well trained staff were very good indeed. I highly recommend Ahana to anyone wishing to spend time in a beautiful private home in Diani/Galu.

  • The place is beautiful and looks exactly like the pictures . Anina is warm and welcoming and the place is good for a quiet getaway

    Nancy2020-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay at Anina's place! She was so gracious to host us after we booked one day in advance due to our last minute change in plans. Her assistant arranged a car to pick us up from the airport and then met us at the apartment for check-in. She was so friendly and welcoming, showed us all around the space, answered all our questions, and recommended some awesome local restaurants and activities based on what we were looking to do (our favorites were Shashin-Ka sushi and the Salty Squid!). The apartment was perfectly clean and stylish and included really helpful amenities. We slept great in the comfortable bed and really appreciated the air conditioning, overhead fans, and stylish mosquito net. This space is awesome value for the price, is in a great location (very walkable to great restaurants and the beach), and access to the pool is a great addition! We also felt very safe and the security guards were great. We are so happy we chose to book with Anina and we look forward to booking this property or one of her other properties in the future.

    Laura2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Aninas accomodation is just beautiful. We loved to stay with you. The accomodation has a lot of details and is not missing anything. Staff is really nice also as security was really attentice and Zaina looked out for us properly. The pool had always hot water in it. We can warmly recommend to stay with Anina.

    Lisa2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Anina and her co worker Zaina were excellent to work with and very accommodating . Beautiful place to stay . Would definitely come again .

    april2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Anina’s place was awesome. Do not hesitate to book your stay here while in Diani. The suite’s decor was excellent. Very clean place all through. Very close (5-7mins walk) to the supermarket & restaurants. Short drive to the airstrip. Zaina was great. Communication prior to our arrival was timely & her tips were excellent. We checked in on my birthday, & I had cupcakes & flowers waiting for me! Highly recommend Anina’s place!

    Edel2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • I had a wonderful stay at Anina’s place. Her studio apartment is very spacious and comfortable - just steps from the pool area. The location is nice. Though it wasn’t right on the beach, access to the beach was quite easy. My only complaint is that I wasn’t able to stay longer! Thanks for a lovely stay, Anina!

    Mary2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Everything you could wish for and more! The suite was absolutely amazing as was the host’ hospitality. I can’t wait to get back here.

At low tide you can walk for miles along the reef finding many shallow pools to wallow in. Over the last few months we have witnessed many turtle hatching's on our beach. Our resident guide Saidi is knowledgeable about the location and timings of all these events. We also have the Starfish Island just a brief walk away and in the opposite direction the famous Tiwi Rock Pools. Saidi, also the starfish caretaker would be happy to take you on a tour to see them both. He is a real authority on the Star fish and the local Green Turtle. His nominal charge of $5 per person for the tour must be the greatest value environmental tour in Kenya.

In addition we have a third party shopping service at $30 with a expansive online shopping list which you can complete and submit. If you are arriving late or just wish everything to be ready on your arrival you can fill it in and everything will be bought for you and delivered to the kitchen. You just pay when you get here. If you wish we can also arrange for fresh seafood to be delivered for your arrival. If you take the chef you might like to order in advance from the following.

    15 minutes drive to all the hussle and bustle of Diani Beach where you can get anything you want. Bank,s supermarkets, golf course, and many restaurants.
  • There were no other guests on the property at the time of our stay so it was wonderfully private. There is a gas cook stove so you will be able to cook for yourself or hire Charles. We brought food with us that we wanted to eat which was a great choice because we didn't have a vehicle and getting back and forth to Diani for more groceries is quite a trip. This is a secluded place for sure! The tent is beautiful, the beach is beautiful. We had a wonderful time.

    Abigail2020-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing hidden gem, tucked away. Lovely accommodation, with thoughtful hosts!

    David2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • The place is great, the clifftop pool is very lovely. Chef Charles made us very good meals and he is very decent and helpful. The hosts were of great help with anything we requested and they were always welcoming with giving us the privacy we need

    Mona2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • A paradise on earth for me !!! It was all more than perfect, a beautiful honeymoon tent for me all by myself with an additional great pool and a more than gigantic view. Super great facility, with great attention to detail. Charles, the cook is highly recommended - he cooks delicious and also buys everything you could wish for. Sabine and Meike are two super nice and warm people! I can only recommend it and anyone who has been there will only be able to confirm it. I have to go there again

    Violetta2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is an amazing spot! From the tent in the jungle to the cliff slide pool and the beach just below, we were able to truly relax during our stay. Charles the chef, made some amazing meals, the pork adobo was hands down our favorite meal. He not only has the culinary skills but his kind heart and pleasant demeanor made us feel comfortable and welcomed. I would recommend this place to anyone that’s looking to switch off from reality and just relax.

    Sylvia2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great shape with sense of space, tranquility and beauty. Charles made the days complete by preparing the most delicious dishes for us with great care and dedication. The stay was wonderful. Thanks

    Loek2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • This place is outstanding! The location is among the best on the Kenyan coast - super private and tranquil but also easy to get to. The exclusive-use mini pool offers spectacular views and a sense of true luxury, without being too contrived. The tent itself is very chic and clean and the numerous thoughtful touches (cold water on arrival, extra towels, fresh candles) were really appreciated. Sabina and Mike themselves are a wonderful and super hospital couple, who clearly enjoy showing their guests a good time. Can’t wait to come back!

    Margarita2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Make sure you come prepared to be disconnected from reality in the most fantastic of ways. When properly packed you set yourself up for an absolutely amazing getaway. Secluded, just footsteps from the beach, the honeymoon suite was just what we were looking for. Having the option of having Charles cook for us made our experience even that much better. Sabine and Mike really took their time making paradise a reality.

  • Once again, after our second stay it’s the perfect location for beach and chill holidays. If you are looking for a super , super host and an amazing house, you have found it. Every detail is so creative and charming and when you arrive Rose and her Team makes you feel like coming home.

  • if you ever dreamed of living like a rockstar, or you are actually living the life, this is the place to be. Situated in a quiet and lush neighborhood, this palace offers relaxed and tranquil days at the house or a quick Tuk Tuk drive to any of Diani’s many beaches or fresh seafood restaurants. The house staff is superb and taking care of any errands you may have. Try the reflexology and deep tissue massage by Rose who is coming to the house on demand. Also try one of the best sushi/sashimi at the close by Japanese restaurant. Communication pre and while on holiday with sam was excellent and everything has been arranged for. All is taking care of, a true retreat of body and mind. Will definitely come back and a big thanks to Sam and his team! Niklas

    Niklas2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Sam's place is amazing. Looks even better than the amazing photos. We opted for the chef and was not disappointed. After meeting with the chef, he was able to prepare vegan and vegetarian dishes and took care of all the food shopping. It is only a short ride from the beach. Follow the instructions provided and read house rules regarding electric fees. Sam and his house manager are available to assist with any needs you may have.

    Damola2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • We chose Sultan Saka House based on the pictures but when we arrived the place is even more impressive. Sam’s communication was quick and helpful before and during our stay. He also pointed us to a friend to organise an overnight safari. Check in had been arranged and we received a warm welcome by Rose and her team. We also recommend the private chef George, who arranged all our shopping and cooked our dinner and breakfast. He comes at a small fee (plus the cost of the food shopping) but well worth it and in the end cheaper than going out plus the benefit of private dining in the house or garden. The rest of the team keep the house and garden impeccable during your stay and there is always someone discreetly available 24/7 which gives a secure feeling. A couple of remarks... as the water is heated through the sun, you need to plan when best to use the shower or to fill the huge (impressive) bath. Also in tropical Africa, there are some interesting insects around. Whilst the team always kept the place impeccably clean, at night there might be the odd surprise visitor. Other reviews complained about the nearby airstrip but it never bothered us. We definitely recommend Sultan Saka House and hope to be back again soon.

    Jan2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Sam's place in Diani beach was perfect for my family. We enjoyed the pool every single day after a day spent at Diani Beach. My favorite was the food prepared by Chef George. My kids loved his cooking! And so did we! I would highly suggest hiring him as you will save money on food and wont have to keep going out to eat! The house was clean, spacious, and very cool. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. We couldn't have had a better stay and vacation at Diani beach! We all loved it!

    Stella2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Wow this place is amazing! It’s accurate ! The staff is kind nice sweet and amazing company! The host is one of a kind! His communication and helpfulness was outstanding! My experience was one of a kind I won’t ever forget. I would definitely recommend this place ! 11/10. Absolutely outstanding.

The lodging is as described and was cleaned daily by the staff. It was very important that we always have fresh towels, even the beach chairs were prepared for us every day. Thank you both for the lovely care and the touching farewell words from Mike ........ to say .... goodbye

Jane was so helpful with everything and gave us recommendations for the glass bottom boat and a taxi from the airport. My brother and I had everything we needed and I will certainly be back here again soon!

    Dan2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We hade a great stay here. Really clean, nice house with a great terrace. The kitchen has everything you need: fridge, gas oven, a microwave and a watercooker (and also some tea, oil, salt, sugar,...). The whole house is really bright. You can see in from outside, so for some privacy you have to close the curtains.. Also the house is a bit thin-walled.. No mosquito net but also no mosquitos in the house.

    Katrin2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Many small things, not mentioned in any description, made this stay very comfortable: I was happy to see a iron in this apartment, there was coffee and sugar and drinking water. Means enter-and-feel-good. The host is helping in many ways which normally not expected

    Rainer2020-02-05T00:00:00Z

    Neil2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • I expected a lot less and was pleasantly surprised. The place is super clean. Location wise is perfect short walk to the beach,supermarket and restaurants. The rooms are very spacious. I was staying at a high end hotel before I discovered here which I now regret as I could have stayed here for a couple of weeks for the money I spent on a couple of nights. Colin is also very helpful and always happy to help with any local knowledge of the area. It's also in a very safe and secure compound. Thanks for hosting me I'll be back again.

    Immy2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • it's nice place. definitely gives you value for your money. I just wish the wifi was as available in the private rooms as well and just not in the common areas. otherwise it was better than I anticipated. everyone was friendly

    Shane2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place and Colin is equally amazing host though I didn’t get to meet him. The swimming pool is great for cooling off at the end of the day and the place is quite close to the beach and supermarkets. I will be back.

    750m to the beach, in close proximity to supermarkets, shop, bars, restaurants etc. Small, private complex with a total of only 4 cozy, well-equipped appartments (with Air Conditioning!), swimming pool and a beautiful, lovely garden full of tropical flowers.
    Karibuni sana to Frangipani Cottages! We offer comfort, hospitality and cleanliness.

The apartment for up to two persons described in this offer has 25 m² living space and is our smallest one. The shady, private terrace with it's ceiling fan, eating table and couch welcomes you with a view to the beautiful garden. The kitchen with gas stove and oven, fridge (and freezer) and enough cooking utensils is easy to use during a long term rent or holiday. Our handmade furniture and ornamental elements made out of tropical timber are supposed to give every apartment an individual, special appearance. The sleeping room comes with a big double bed, mosquito nets, A/C and ceiling fan. There is also a TV for which we provide a DVD-Player, so you can watch your favorite movies. No TV-Channels at the moment. Additionally, you will find a big wardrobe for your clothes and a bookshelf. In the bath room you have the option to shower with warm water. Sweet Water / Drinking water is freshly put into containers every day. You can use it to cook, brush your teeth or even for drinking. It is completely safe (we buy it from a Drinking water supplier) - we drink it everyday and have always been fine. Keep in mind that in most holiday homes in Kenya you have to buy every drop of sweet water by yourself! At our place, only very cautious people have to buy water for drinking in sealed bottle in the supermarkets. Bedclothes, towels and daily cleaning (6 times a week) by our housekeeper as well as gas and water are included in the price. Power usage is also included in this price. ONLY IF you want to use the AIR CONDITIONING (A/C) we will charge the power separatly (20 ksh per kwh). There is an electric meter for every unit. At the end of your stay, we'll then kindly ask you to pay for your power extra in cash. But please do not worry - the highest our Air Condition loving guests ever had to pay on top was 3000 ksh per week. So this is more or less the maximum to except to pay on top if you want to enjoy the additional cooling!

There is no traffic noise and at night there are street lights. The main road to us is nowadays well-lit and has been sealed in March 2017.
  • Very nice, clean, quiet and safe facility. Very nice and well-kept pool. Thomas is an excellent host. Nearby restaurants and bars. I'll be back.

    Stephan2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Frangipani cottages is cost and exceptionally clean. The distance to the beach is less than 10 mins walk. Restaurants and shops are also very close. Thomas has an information package in the unit to assist guests on amenities that are close to the cottage. I stayed in the smallest unit that was cost and well designed I felt quite comfortable as I stayed here for over 6 weeks. I give Frangipani 5 stars as the hosts were very friendly and responsive to any requests. Thanks to Salome, the care taker whose bright smile and ever ready to help or answer any questions was very much appreciated. Thomas and Nora are great hosts and I thank them for making my staycomfortable and memorable.🥂

    Zubedah2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Frangipani is a magical place! Close to the beach, it’s absolutely beautiful. A little oasis, all your own. Great stay, walk & grocery shop down the road in Chandarana, & visit Havana for some solid margaritas. Special thanks to Salome for being so welcoming & genial! She made Frangipani feel like home.

    George2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at hibiscus2, great value for money, nice sized (deep) and clean pool. Kitchen is equipped enough to make a simple meal and breakfast. We loved Salome (the maid) who welcomed us warmly and was always smiling and friendly. She explained everything clearly about whatever we needed to know and was concerned about our comfort as well as safety.

    Veja2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Top apartment! Very good location, super clean, every day the apartment is completely cleaned by the good soul of the house. The staff are very hardworking and very nice. All in all it was a wonderful stay, I would recommend it to anyone and come back everytime.

    Vera2019-05-18T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, I highly recommend it !!

    Kate2019-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Frangipani cottages for 5 nights. Though we never met the owner (Thomas) in person, Salome the caretaker gave us a warm reception and she is a wonderful person. We loved the clean pool, serenity of the place, well equipped kitchen, very tidy facility and the privacy. Has pallet swing chairs with comfortable cushions which are great for relaxing as you read, tell romantic stories, or take naps. There is an aircon in the bedroom, portable fan and ceiling fans to cool the ambient temperature that is usually warm and humid. Thomas is an artist so the facility has an artistic touch to it which you will definitely like. The water used for shower is salty but they provide tap water in separate containers which is good and safe for cooking and drinking. You can buy bottled water and other items from the nearby shopping centres/malls, approximately 1-4 km distance. The transport (mostly tuk tuk) around this place is affordable to many social amenities and the beach is just 10-15 min walk. The TV was not working and you can only use it with the DVD player since Frangipani does not offer satellite channels. For us we wanted to spend more time on ourselves so this was not an issue. The internet was ok but sometimes it was very slow. In general it is an excellent facility and we look forward to our next visit. Thank you Thomas.

    Stanley2018-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Recommended! excellent value for money. the place is quiet and well located about 12 mins to the beach by foot. the swimming pool was always clean. Salome received us very warmly and was helpful at all requests we came up with.

    Diani Beach, Kwale, Kenya

    Azhari, a private & luxurious Beach Suite, with stunning views over the Indian Ocean. The perfect place for relaxation, romance, peace & recovery. Set in a beautiful garden with stunning giant Baobab & PalmTrees, just a few footsteps to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Ideal for honeymooners, couples or singles. Relax, lay back by your own pool or beach bay and drift away with the sound of the ocean. Our guests always say, 'We don't want to leave' :-) + a great Breakfast incl.
    The Azhari Suite was originally named after a trading dhow and its first Indian owner. The dhow was made in India, at a place called Kachi Mandu in the early 1930s, predominantly from Himalayan Teak timber. Her maximum carrying capacity was 450 tonnes and she spend many years trading between the ports of Asia, Qatar, Iran, Dubai, Somalia, Bahrain & Djibouti. For most of the 1970’s, until her death on Diani Beach’s outer reef, this large trading Dhow used to carry bulk amounts of rice, sugar cooking oil, cement and other trading goods, mostly sailing to East African ports using the Indian Ocean seasonal trade winds. In May 2015, during a storm, M.V. Azhari lost power and ran aground on the reef of Diani Beach, almost directly opposite to what is now the Azhari Suite. No one died, but all trading goods and the Dhow were lost. During this time we managed to reclaim, from the owner (at considerable expense), most of the Dhow timber beams, which were then re-used to build this luxury & unique beach retreat. The Steel bolts & nails on display in the coffee table, are original and were also recovered from some of the dhow timber pieces. The sandbank on which she ran aground is clearly visible on a low tide, looking North from the Beach suite. There are still remnants of the wreck including the keel on the sandbank and surrounding reef, which makes for an interesting snorkelling trip on a low tide.
    The Suite is located in the heart of Diani Beach on a large beachfront property with a beautiful garden , in walking distance by beach or road to watersports, restaurants, bars & shops.
  • Staying at Azhari house in a « self-confinement context » was more than unique Nicole was very reactive, kind and caring. The breakfast was delicious and the place is relaxing. A little piece of paradise !

    Nour2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Azhari is a magical location hosted by wonderful people. Little thoughtful touches that make the location that much more wonderful. Nicole is super helpful and very responsive. The team is excellent. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to disconnect and spend a few days at this gorgeous property💯.

    Maryann2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing! The suite and the location are second to none and Nicole is a superb host! We will definitely return.

    Robert2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Nicole was a lovely host! Her response time impeccable. Azhari is every bit as beautiful as the pictures...even more. A little slice of heaven. It is so surreal, almost unreal. We had an amazing time. :) The location was perfect, just by the beach. Nicole was kind enough to share very useful tips about getting around and places to check out. I literally have nothing negative to say about the place or experience. Our only regret is that our stay was too short! Thank you for hosting us. We'll be back soon.

    Ivey2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Everything about our stay was perfect. Nicole greeted us personally when we arrived. The property was unbelievably beautiful in an ideal location a few steps from the beach and close to restaurants and bars. Breakfast was one of my favorite parts of the stay - everything homemade and delicious. Thank you Nicole for the great recommendations! We had a great time on a glass bottom boat adventure that Nicole helped us organize with Captain John and Tobias. I highly recommend checking out what John and Tobias have to offer! So delightful.

    Charlotte2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely amazing. It was like being on my own private island. It was accessible to all the restaurants and to town. I didn't have to worry about a thing because Nicole, Saida and Bakari took care of all of it. I felt welcomed and treasured. I am already looking to book my next holiday. 😊 This place delivered in terms of thinking space, relaxation and reflection. Perfect! Perfect!

    Wambui2019-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • Azhari is idyllic in every way. Nicole is an amazing host, really accommodating. She had a ton of suggestions for where to eat and what to do. The cottage is beautifully designed, with everything you need for an amazing stay. The location is perfect, the amenities ar luxurious, the staff are attentive and the food is delicious. We didn't want to leave. I can't wait to be back!

    Amira2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is the best place we ever stayed in Diani beach by far! Best location on the beach, right on the ocean, amazing space decorated with taste, very confortable bed with view view over the ocean, clean. Very relaxing. Lots of privacy and great breakfast. Just book it , it cant go wrong!

  • The apparent is very nice clean and has a very good price/value relation. Everything was as described and the owner (Steffi) was highly supportive before and during the stay. In case you value to stay in a normal neighbourhood rather than in an expensive hotel, and cook by your own, then this the place to go. Beside of that restaurants, atms and a bigger supermarket are reachable in less than 5 min with tuktuks. Depending what beach section you prefer you will reach it between 10 to 15 min. I will come back for sure 😎👍🌞

  • Jackie place was perfect to stay in diani beach because it’s a 10min walk to the beach and close to restaurants and grocery store. We loved the fact that we could go to the pool and the beach in the same day. Also the employees at this place itself were very helpful with local tips and even helping us set up a tour to Wasini Island which was the highlight of our trip! I would recommend Jackie’s place to anyone and would definitely stay here again.

    Moesha2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • One word! Perfect, from the booking to communication to the villas. All was just perfect and right. And Jackie was kind enough to bring us a piece of cake for a birthday we had. Her level of professionalism was beyond and we can't wait to come back again

    Anthony2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed Jackie's place! Super friendly host, sweet staff working at the cottage and very safe plus close to everything. Walking distance to the beach and the main road where you find all the tuktuks. The cottage itself was clean and very convenient. We couldn't have a better experience in Kenya. Thank you Jackie, you're the best!

    Merhawit2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Jackie s place is nested in a small beautiful community on the Diani beach road. The access to a 24 hour pool right in front of Ur door step is amazing. If you come with ur own transport then this place is simply too perfect for ur vacation. Jackie and the community manager do help out a lot with the local tuk tuk and as well got a good bargain to get us dropped in SGR station in Mombasa. This side of the beach where the place is located is mainly for families and little older gen. If you're into more of a touristy vibe and being hip, i would suggest to go the opposite side of the each road where it's a little more crowded. Had a very satisfactory time spent here in Diani. Leonards restaurant was simply amazing and aniellos have the best house wine. If you want a complete luxury dining experience on beach do check out the sands at Nomad hotel, simple worth the money and the travel distance.

    Anand Prabu2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Expect to enjoy yourself. Great value and welcoming staff. Well kept, experience I will never forget.

    Dennis2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • The house was a really lovely and quiet place to stay and relax for a few days. Hospitality was great and anything we needed was taken care of. Jackie always checked in on us even when she wasn't on site. There were security guards working night and day and made us feel comfortable. The house is not directly by the beach or the main road which meant we took a tuktuk for a small fee everywhere we went, which worked well.

    Christine2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Jackie’s house is great and exactly as promised. It’s about 10 minutes from the beach although we had the swimming pool right outside our door. The bed was big and comfortable and the WiFi and AC worked great. We had plenty of room and privacy on the front porch to relax and eat our meals. Jackie arranged for a local chef to come cook for us. It was economical and made us feel like were were at an expensive resort without having to pay the big nightly rate. Our host was friendly and professional and easy to communicate with and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable.

    Stephen2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really nice stay. The host made arrangements for us to be picked and arrive safely at the house and also gave us suggestions about local eateries to try. The house is very clean and the environment is quiet and great for some time away. The pool is right outside the cottage as well. The people on ground are also very friendly and willing to help you move around and tour the area. We would have loved to stay for longer.

    Rachael2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect beach hostel experience. Open and airy, the natural lighting and hospitality made for a relaxing stay. Great security and a easy trek to the beach. Reesha and her co-host were also very generous and inclusive!

    Kellin2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • You know there is a dream home and footprint house is one of those places. Every small thing has a story of its own and the story teller is the ambience around. Lucy m, reesha and Fahad All are exceptionally polite and well to talk to and the place is amazingly clean and good to stay..... I am staying here again in my next trip

    Akhil2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place definitely going back when I visit Mombasa....Diani

    Christine2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best dorms I've had a chance to stay in, given how economical the prices are. Reesha and her staff have ensured that they maintain the place well. The result, is a dorm and home, that's cozy, comfortable and impeccably clean. The bathrooms are cleaned twice a day and en suite, which is convenient. There's enough room for storage. There's also a private pool on the property you can access. Beyond this, they also went out of their way with tips and fun things to do as I was rained in on one of the days. Would definitely go back to stay again!

    Anjaly2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • I had a really good time in Reeshas Hostel. Everything was like the others said before. I totally can recommend it to others.

    Kyra2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Top notch hostel in a priceless location. Hosts are super friendly and accommodating as well as all staff on site. Pool and best beach in Africa right in your backyard. Shops and restaurants just 5 mins away. You'll meet cool people, eat heavenly food and save a ton of money. Can't say no to that

  • This place was absolutely stunning! Once you've gotten through the hustle and bustle of Mombasa this is a major stress reliever! Nixon the chef was fantastic and his Curry was delicious. The place was perfectly clean and cleaned daily. Having an outdoor pool with plenty of shade during the hot time of the day was a life saver. Would highly recommend!

  • Perfect place for our beach girls trip Breakfast on the verandah and looking out at the sea is the perfect way to kick off the day. The rooms are private to each other so plenty of room and the central area holds the pool and dining table. Chef Nixon was great and absolutely professional, creating a wholesome breakfast each morning House is kept very clean daily and the beach is just a hop away.

  • Barry was an amazing host, he is very quick to respond and helps in every way he can. All the staff was amazing. The chef Nixxon cooked really good food and even had fresh seafood delivered straight to the house for us to pick from. Janet set us up with all the activities and suggested such great restaurants as well. I will definitely be coming back to tequila sunrise.

  • Tequila Sunrise and the staff were excellent! We stayed in The Main House for 3 nights to kickoff our honeymoon and could not be happier. The house is beautiful and just as pictured. Close to amenities and attractions. The area is quiet and perfect for relaxing. Nixon the chef was excellent and really made our stay more enjoyable. Highly recommended

    Set under a giant fig tree, a cosy two bedroom & loft cottage, only a minute walk to the beach. The cottage is set on a private property, surrounded by indigenous trees, home of several troops of moneys including a very special Black and white Colobus monkey. A part of a property has an ocean view where sun beds are set up. You can stay under a tree reading a good book while listening to the sound of the sea and watching monkeys at play. Bedrooms are air-conditioned.
    There are two air conditioned bedrooms and one bathroom in the house, and works well for families, small group of friends & couples. There are also two single beds in the loft to accommodate the groups of seven. Loft is not air-conditioned, but has a fan. The loft is accessible by the 'ladder-stairs'. Please do not let young children to climb unsupervised. The cottage comes with a fully equipped kitchen, living room, spacious veranda with BBQ. Included in the price are bedclothes, towels and daily cleaning by our housekeeper. Free Wi-Fi is also included in your stay. To make your stay a real luxury retreat, we can arrange a personal chef for you. The chef will help you with your meal planning and can also do all the grocery shopping for you.
    Stunning white sandy beach is just in front of you where you can enjoy your swimming and beach walks. A popular Forty Thieves Beach Bar is five minutes’ walk away. To the other direction, 20 min walk, there is lovely Nomads beach restaurant and a sport centre, offering diving, windsurfing and kitesurfing. Within 1 minute walk you can also reach Diani beach main road, where you can easily get a tuk-tuk ride to the nearest shopping centre. Taxi service can be arranged directly from the property upon request. Some lovely day trips can be done from Diani, like boat trips to the nearby sandbank for snorkelling, Full day trip to Wasini Island for snorkelling/diving, Safari to Shimba hills and even longer safaris to nearby national parks.
  • The Cozy Cottage is a beautiful house. It is bright and modern, super clean and you feel 100% safe there. The garden is well maintained and the terrace invites you to linger. You can watch the monkey playing and eating. The beach is less than 5 minutes on foot. Tip: Make sure to ask a chef and enjoy original Swahili cuisine. Josephine (caretaker) was very friendly and helped us with our laundry (washing a large basket + ironing, 1000 ksh). The security guards were also very friendly and you can chat with everyone on site and learn more about Diani. We also booked a safari with "Eyes on Africa" (reputable agency), the office is right next to the cottage. Ask about Maxwell, he was a great safari guide with a lot of experience and knowledge (he is also a bird specialist). We had a wonderful stay at Cozy Cottage and would come back again and again!

  • Another fantastic stay! Came here two years ago and again now. Place is very well equipped and the staff that work at the house are very obliging for every request. Really nothing much to add beyond the 5 star review. Not having a pool might be seen as a negative by some but it makes you actually go to the beach. Thanks again! We will be back.

    Will2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Delightful cottage very close to the beach. The local staff are charming and helpful. We recommend Rashid as a cook. He is friendly and courteous and makes consistently delicious meals. One of the best Airbnb’s that we have experienced. We highly recommend!

    Susan2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely, spacious, stylish home that’s also v comfortable. Just minutes walk to a beautiful beach along a shady path. We loved the big terrace & the chef, James, was great. V helpful staff. Overall, a great stay.

    Fionnuala2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • The cosy cottage is the perfect weekend get away in Diani!! Plenty of shade and privacy but also close to the beach, bars & Nomads! I had a great stay with two friends and there was plenty of room if not more for all three. Will definitely book again!

    Bissy2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy cottage, as its own name describes, as the pictures show. Beautiful and peaceful place, 2 minutes walking distance to the beach. Would definitively go back.

    Robert2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • My family and I had a great time staying at this stunning place! It’s super easy to find, very clean, beautifully decorated, and right next to the beach. Many thanks to Alex and Josephine for making everything go smoothly :)

    Jasmine2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • It is the 3rd or 4th time we have stayed with Neva, and its perfect again and again. Why? The house is the perfect size for a family, everything works - the ACs in the rooms really cool, the shower has pressure, hot&cold water, water is sweet and never smells, fridge is huge and works perfectly, kitchen is really well equipped, there are fans everywhere, etc etc. We have been staying there since 2017 and it always seems brand new & painted yesterday. It is not ON the beach, but its so close to it that its not so relevant - i actually counted 300 steps from the beach (and the path is just beautiful!!).
