This is a place we really recommend! We stayed here over Christmas and had a relaxing holiday with our family. The manager and the staff made us feel at home, they were friendly and professional. This property is right on the beach but the houses are a bit up from the beach. The property is a large garden with houses.... More

Just the best place to be! Excellent chef, wonderful location, beautiful place and welcoming hosts! Helen and Richard are awesome. The house is cozy and clean. Good to have a car to visit different places around and ask the hosts for best restaurants. Watch out for the monkeys they are excellent food thieves but otherwise amusing to watch. Highly reccomend... More

The place is beautiful and the staff very nice but it is not worth the price: 10,500 shillings per person day YET we could not eat when we wanted to, with small kids having to wait until 9AM to have breakfast is not ideal. We didn’t have enough food for breakfast (6 paying adults…) and the owner was quite unpleasant... More

Mixed emotions about this place. I've stayed at Diani House three times now, as well as twice at the same owners' place in Naivasha. Both of the properties are amazing, the staff are great, and the owners were welcoming. During my last stay at Diani House, however, the owners made it clear I was inconveniencing them. They noted in an... More

Three work colleagues traveled during the low season and stayed at Diani house. The food was fantastic, and the staff very accommodating. The room was always cleaned nicely. The view was great with a fantastic pool. The only issue was that the bottled water was always out.

We have been going to Diani House for years and years, the last time was in January 2011. It is home from home, you can be as private and secluded as you want to be, or can join the other guests. The location is perfect, right on a pristine beach and warm Indian Ocean. The food is delicious, fresh and... More

I had come to celebrate my 1st wedding anniv with my wife to Diani. Chose south coast over north coast because of the quality of beaches. I had the room rental fixed at 15K (KSh)per night. I entered the property, and it was empty and we were the only guests, thought it was possibly a low season; We sat for... More

We held our annual family reunion in Diani House in Aug 2011. The house is elegant, comfortable, and superbly located. The staff and the owners were discreet and extremely helpful - in particular the cooks Nico and James are first rate. All 13 of us (3 generations) had a marvelous time, and would love to return!

Those cottages are cosy , away from the main area, peaceful and really well decorated. We loved the big sofas where you can rest and read watching the sea (and the rain!) - the staff is really good : the guart very sweet and we loved the food the cook brought us. Perfect place for a romantic gateway, to rent... More
