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

My husband and I came here for our short honeymoon. Hilary and Jane helped us arranged for airport pick up and drop off - the driver Gabriel was great! Our entire transit went perfectly smoothly! We stayed at the Tsulini cottage for 3 days and had a very relaxing time. Our chef and maid were very attentive and friendly, yet... 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

411 south sits in front of a beautiful beach and is great in concept- self contained cottages where you enjoy privacy and a sense of having your own place on the beach. Unfortunately it is a little too private, where you may seldom or never see a manager until its time to pay the bill. We arrived with kids to... More

My husband and I and our toddler stayed in Chikore House for nine nights and we couldn't have asked for anything more. The house was beautiful and comfortable, the staff was truly amazing and we were only steps from the most gorgeous beach we've ever set foot on. Our chef, Uhuru, was amazing, and we had some of the best... More

What a fabulous, enchanting spot. 6 cottages on a beautiful piece of property, right on the beach. This is a small, authentic resort, on the best stretch of Diani/Galu beach. Away from the crowds in Diani, but close enough to everything. Hilary is a warm, efficient host, taking care of details in the background, and our cook prepares the most... More

You couldn't find a nicer spot in Kenya for a quiet beach holiday. I woke up in a four poster bed looking onto the Indian Ocean. It is complete peace and quiet. These are beautiful cottages with history, not a fake-feeling resort. They are literally in a garden on the beach so the sea is spread right out in front... More

I came back with two friends and a small kid, and we couldn't have had a lovelier time. No worries about cooking or housekeeping, the beach is one of the nicest I've ever been to, and Hilary runs the proper quietly in the background with much love and attention to detail.
