We stayed at Diani House over the Easter weekend and thoroughly loved it! Relaxed atmosphere, such friendly and helpful hosts, beautiful beach and pool and lots of lounging space! We loved the feeling of being so close to nature and watching the colobus monkeys passing through the trees. The location was also perfect: beach front property with stunning views and... More

My boyfriend and I spent 5 days at Diani house over the Labour day long weekend. We had a fabulous and relaxing experience. We were greeted at the airport by Ludo and his cheery smile. As we arrived at Diani house, we were greeted by the refreshing scented towels and a delicious fresh Coconut to drink. After check-in, we were... More

We had very personalised attention. The owners and staff were very kind and welcoming. The food was also delicious, we were spoilt for choice. I have never eaten such delicious monster lobsters and prawns. And the rooms…… we had a beach view and the sound of waves at the background was very healing. It was nature at its best and... More

Diani house is a rare place in Diani : fantastic environment, large mature garden extending directly on the pristine beach, so natural and peaceful, and a walking distance to main shopping areas. Recently refurbished by the new owners, with lot of great ideas. Seafood dinner under the stars is unforgettable. Recommended to happy people who love Africa....

diani house is a wonderful guest house/ boutique hotel, purpously kept in its original colonial style. Angie and Ludo are wonderful hosts, that looked after us in a very discret way. The food was always fresh, wonderful tasting and we had a big variety of choices. The hosts are catering for us the stressed over sea's clientel. The secret to... More

We have been here twice now and the service is always fantastic! We first visited in late summer 2014 when it had been taken over by new management and more recently in late January this year. It is literally 5 minutes from the airstrip, and we were cheerily picked up by our hosts (and the managers!) Angie and Ludo. Once... More

Diani House is a beautiful spot to relax. The owners and staff are incredibly friendly and the service is personal and given with attention to detail and your comfort. The old (former private) house has a homey-feeling and with its large verandas a great home away from home. The tranquil garden is frequently visited by smallest suni antelope and curious... More
