The beach is completely breathtaking. The sand is white soft clay and the water is the contrast of peridot and marina blue. Hot... yes, but worth it. Muhammad, the chef, is the absolute gem, we would like to take him home. Veronica is so gentle and loving. She keeps the place clean. The cottage is a perfect get away. The... More

Not only was our 3 BR bungalow right on the beach where we could watch beautiful sunsets, we found this quiet, tucked=away location to be the perfect place for relaxing. Out group of friends enjoyed all the meals prepared by the chef. The staff made sure that everything was tidy even with our sandy feet. Beautiful fresh flowers were a... More

Travel warnings.....made me laugh. We stayed at Four Twenty South, it was paradise. Beautiful cottage, excellent food, magnificent white beach and clean fantastic ocean. What does one want more in life?

Everything about this idyllic place was wonderful. Me, my husband and our two sons(13 and 9) flew to Ukunda from Nairobi, (with views of Kilimanjaro on the way) and were picked up from the airport. The house was extremely clean, and was cleaned everyday. A fisherman arrived every morning with freshly caught red snapper, calamari and lobster, from which Mohammad,... More

My husband and I spent one week here for the perfect holiday. We stayed in an intimate two bedroom cottage right on the sea. The recommendation came from a close friend who stays here every year, she couldn't have been more right. Our cottage was so clean and kept everyday by Ms. Veronica. Mohammad our chef cooked us fabulous meals... More

We have been here 4 times in the last year and a half, and it does not disappoint. Lovely cottages set in well kept grounds on a pristine beach that offer plenty of privacy. The cottages are very well managed, with the aim of making your stay as relaxing as possible; a few days before, just email a shopping list... More

We had a great time - arrived late at night and were welcomed by the guards and owners. The whole stay was perfect, the cottage was really comfortable and well designed. We had an excellent chef and very nice maid. The location was great on a not busy stretch of perfect sand. No faults to find and we would highly... More

Actually 4.2 degrees South of the equator, hence the name, these lovely cottages nestled on Diani beach are just a heavenly place for a holiday. We have been here 3 times now, taking a different cottage each time- there is a choice of sizes and prices depending on your needs, and it just gets better every year. I have mixed... More
