Stayed here for a couple of days with my fiancée and friends. The place is epicly serene. The cottage was uber comfy and the wait staff were absolutely fantastic. Special commendations to Patrick, Grace and the Chefs who made our stay so good. Will definitely be back. Keep up the great work.

Had one night here 2/11/13 and was very impressed. So quiet at night and so calm during the day. The set up with the pool in the centre and the bungalows around the outside is perfect. The rooms are basic but adequate. The little sofa chair at the front door is a brilliant little touch to sit and relax on.... More

My husband and I spent a week here the last part of our honeymoon! What a romantic and quaint paradise!

Bianca and her staff definitely made the stay... More

I visited African Dream Cottages in January 2013. It is absolutely beautiful, your own piece of paradise. Just a short walk from Diani beach and the forty theives pub, its a fantastic place for a little get away. The only complaint I can make is the food, the only thing I recommend eating from there is the breakfast, otherwise head... More
