We arrived late, it was dark but we could hear the ocean nearby. The villa private chef cooked delicious fresh fish. The property was very quiet and ideal for relaxation after long trip around Kenya. The following morning we were impressed by the beauty of the beach, incredibly white sand just some meters away from our villa. Thank you Pepo... More

Just back from a restful couple of days at Kusini Beach Cottages after a week of travelling through southern Kenya with friends. The beach is nothing short of paradise, but what really sets this place apart is Pepo's hospitality, attention to detail and overall generous attitude. Just imagine you go visit a friend who happens to own a piece of... More

most horrible cottages i have been seen. very dirty (no cleaning: old cigarettes under the bed,...), no service (you have to wait hours for support: our benchmark is more than 3 hours ;-) ), cooks come when they want, ... positive: nice beach with only a few beach boys

Pepo M, Owner at Kusini Beach Cottages, responded to this review

Dear G_M_11_11, seems to me like if somebody by the name G_M_11_11 wants to inflict some sort of damage to our reputation. It will be nice if you could identify yourself and we could discuss your "remarks" more accurately. If something all owners (of hotels, villas, cottages) have been doing in this very beautiful Diani beach, is upgrading and maintaining... More

Beautiful cottages on the beach with a lot of character, very comfortable, open floor space. Pepo, the owner, very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Excellent local food, fresh seafood and very good service. Snorkeling close by.

Here’s a place in which to forget the bustling city & the formula of most coastal hotels. Don a kikoi, a hat, walk barefoot, be a lizard & gaze out over an infinity pool, swim at night- in your own time. Add to that, personally select your dinner- more than likely fresh seafood. Have your cottage chef & steward prepare... More

Don't get me wrong, if you are looking for nice but basic cottages (no AC for example) Kusini Beach Cottages are a good choice. We have been going there for over 10 years so obviously we like it there. But no, we won't be going there again. First of all we feel that the recent price increases are not justified.... More

Having lived 12+ years in Kenya and Africa, we have stayed at many houses and hotels on the Kenyan Coast. Kusini ranks among our favourites - simple yet stylish decor, excellent service and located on one of the most beautiful spots on Galu Beach. Our chef cooked such delicious food - with fresh sea food sourced from the local fishermen... More
